Come enjoy the serenity of the Adirondacks in this quaint waterfront cabin. Loon Lake Landing is located 20 miles north of Saranac Lake and 28 miles to LakePlacid/Whiteface Mountain in Franklin County NY . The cabin has three bedrooms and one bath and is located on 2.5 acres. The beautiful waterfront area and private dock provide unobstructed access to Loon Lake . 'The Landing' is one of only a few properties on Loon Lake that has a large beach area. There is a large shallow and sandy area which is perfect for swimming access and launching the boats. The views at Loon Lake Landing go on for miles. Whiteface Mountain and other 'High Peaks,' are just a peek out the door or window! While we offer many of the modern conveniences to which, we have all become accustomed, we hope you choose to instead take advantage of the many awesome (and FREE) activities right outside the doors of the camp. Loon Lake Landing offers a Horseshoe pit, board games, books and DVD's, in addition to many other activities. There is a Samsung HD TV, Direct TV, wireless Internet Access (computer not included.) There is a 2-person canoe, a row boat and a tandem kayak for paddling around Loon Lake. There is a dock for swimming and fishing. Go fishing on Loon Lake for Large Mouth bass, Small Mouth and Northern Pike! There are also places to fish for trout within 10 minutes of the camp. There are thousands of acres of state land a stone's throw away and you can hike up Crusher Mountain in about 45 minutes from the front door. Of course, sometimes nothing beats just sittin' back, breathing the clean clear Adirondack air...just being...while the haunting call of the loon echoes around you. The fire pit by the lake is equipped with Adirondack chairs. Closer to the cabin, is a patio with a big old stone chimney for campfires. Loon Lake is a private lake, so there is not a lot of boat traffic. There is telephone with free long distance.

We really enjoyed our stay at Loon Lake Landing. The cabin is so well equiped and lovely it felt like we were staying in a comfortable home, not a vacation rental. The views of Loon Lake and the High Peaks region are beautiful, with Whiteface Mountain as the mountain cascade center piece. The available Kayak had us paddling several days, exploring all of Loon Lake and getting up close to who the lake is named for. Fires in the outdoor stone fireplace, a night sky dense with stars and the milky way in clear view made for spectacular evenings. We didn't feel the need to leave the cabin and the lake but there are a few near by attractions that are worth the drive - Paul Smiths Visitor Interpretive Center has some nice easy hikes which showcase the different environments of the Adirondacks. The Wild Center (Natural History Museum of Adirondacks) in Tupper Lake lived up to the great reviews. Loon Lake Landing is a very special place and we look forward to future stays and experiencing different seasons there. "Nature is not a place to visit, it is home."
Our week at Loon Lake Landing was the most peaceful place we’ve vacationed in a very long while! Each morning, afternoon, and evening, we were lulled into soothing serenity by the quiet sounds of nature: birds singing, loons wailing, leaves blowing, water rippling, bullfrogs croaking, and woodpeckers knocking! Ahhh.
The cabin, too, is a sanctuary of peace and comfort! Perched atop a hill overlooking Loon Lake, this enjoyable rustic retreat offers perhaps the absolute best location on the lake to view the majestic Whiteface Mountain, as well as McKenzie Mountain, in the backdrop!
We are grateful to Dave and Veronica for sharing their very cozy, comfortable, and clean cabin with us as well as the canoe and kayak! Each day we took the canoe—with our canine companion—to explore all nooks and crannies of lovely Loon Lake, including a picnic lunch one afternoon on a peninsula! We look forward to returning!
My husband and I and our dog had a GREAT week at the cabin!
The cabin itself is immaculate and very well maintained. The photos depicted here represent the cabin and grounds very well in reality and was very much what we expected when we arrived; no disappointment!
We did not leave the property all week and found plenty to keep us busy; hiking, boating, sun-bathing, grilling, making fires in the chimney, making smores, stargazing, and just relaxing and unplugging from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The fleet of boats was our favorite feature. Hubby and I spent HOURS on the paddleboat tooling around the lake. The lake itself is very clean and suitable for swimming. At night, we watched for shooting stars which were AMAZING!
I especially liked the well-stocked library of books that was available on the one rainy day we had; also had fun writing in the guest book :)
Again, this property and home-owner come highly recommended by my family. Thanks, Dave & Veronica for sharing your home with us, especially our dog. We appreciate it and will recommend Loon Lake Landing to all of our friends.
Nice property with puzzles, books, DVDs, views and activities to keep you busy. Did not have an opportunity to use the paddle boat due to the weather. Might as well leave your blackberry at home during your vacation since you're far away from any local coverage. Beautiful sun room to look out at the lake or to work a puzzle.
Most water systems in this area have a natural high iron content. Didn't bother our taste palettes but the owners were thoughtful enough to have bottled water available for those who may be a little fussier.
David was very responsive to a phone call regarding how to get the water pump to kick on. David and Veronica had informed us when we arrived but during all the hustle and bustle of moving luggage...we forgot.
We chose this location to accommodate our older parents and it met all of our expectations. Easy access (1-2 steps at a time) with first floor bedroom and bath and a somewhat level yard.
Cabin is in good repair and the upgrades were nice. Plenty of room to spread out, nice view of the lake from the closed in porch, well equipped cabin and clean (did I mention CLEAN!) Boats and equipment were very nice.
We saw plenty of wildlife. Every day we saw up to four loons. They were shy, but stayed in the lake as we were boating. Nice dirt road to walk through the woods.
We already have made reservations for next year.
My bride and I have been married for 25 yrs. Our anniversary 8/24 was going to be a full moon this year. The absolute perfect spot, cleaar sky, cool night, NO BUGS, and a full moon. We are so very impressed with the home, the grounds, the lake. A very refreshing respite from the work world. You couldn't ask for a more serene and calm setting. The fox; we saw twice, turkeys everywhere, hummingbirds that empty the feeders everyday!
We brought our two Samoyeds, and they had a blast. The fireplace on the hill is awesome! We had a fire on 5 out of 7 nights.
Now, I want to ice-fish up there this year. We will be back!
To Dave and Veronica for the efforts that they put into making this a truly special vacation, THANK YOU! It was just like being home, the comfort level, the upgrades to the facility, the relaxed atmosphere; PERFECT.
