Why Linda and Bob Duerr chose Saranac Lake

We are both graduates of Paul Smith College located just a few miles from our home on Church Pond. We have always loved the Adirondacks and have spent many happy years in the area vacationing.

What makes this house unique

Church Pond is a small non-motorized lake. It's a peaceful haven with plenty of solitude and sunny days to fish, swim, or just sit on the dock and read. We are in the St Regis chain of Lakes.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Linda and Bob's Camp Northern Light in August of this year. It was such a beautiful spot and very quiet and relaxing. The house was very comfortable with all the amenities we needed. There are lots of water craft for your use at the dock. The fishing was great, right from the dock. The weather cooperated. We hiked Ampersand and Wright Peak...the high peaks being very close by and easy to get to. Our family decided its our new favorite place to vacation! Thanks Linda and Bob!

Family vacation in the Adirondacks

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our weeks vacation and are already planning a return trip. Perfect location on a small quiet pond near lots of great paddling routes and of course a drive to the High Peaks if you are so inclined. The weather was on the coolish side with rain off and on, but no day was a complete wash out. And never mind, games, puzzles and hanging with family is perfect on rainy days. We spent most of our time on the docks, fishing, swimming and paddling around. Caught a few good size bass and catfish but no trout despite hours of trying! We enjoyed the fire one night. Loved the porch and we ate out there every night. And of course the swing, perfect for swinging with the grand baby:) The cabin is fully stocked inside and out, great selection of dishes, pots and pans, everything you can need. Owners are super responsive to any questions or inquiries. We can not wait to return!

Camp Northern Light - ADK 2016

  • 5 of 5

We regularly rent homes via VRBO and this was, by far, one of our best experiences. We were so pleased that they permitted us to bring our dogs along with the family! The location is perfectly placed as to near enough to run errands but far enough away from town, traffic, people, etc. We just loved the size of the home, the screened porch, the fireplace and, of course, the dock and water activities. There was always something to do on water or land. The space in the home was perfect for when we had to head in due to afternoon thunderstorms with a huge basement area for the kids; not to mention the perfect set up for the kids in their own room upstairs. The dock is set up great for fishing, boating and paddleboarding. The pond has fish galore and is a place ready for everybody and adventure. We had kids ages 9-13 who could not get enough!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place delivered on everything!!! The property is well kept and have everything you will need for a relaxing vacation. We had children from age 1 - 16 who all had a blast whether it was the little ones thrilled to have tree branches in their room to the older ones kayaking in the pond. Every night we made an effort to get out on the dock lye down on our backs and just enjoy the night sky while the call of the Loon provided us the perfect soundtrack. If you are a golfer the course is just around the corner and is worth every penny. I brought my 9 year old daughter with me just to ride along and the wildlife on the course provided more than enough entertainment (deer, foxes, wild turkey etc...). If your looking for a peaceful, fun, family getaway this is your place just don't take my week cause we will be back next year that's for sure.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation!! This is not our first time renting this vacation home. We rented when our children were 12 or so and it was a great sized pond to keep an eye on them but give them some freedom. They are now young adults and enjoyed the pond just as much. It was a relaxing time away from the "rat race" of normal life and afforded us time to enjoy our family. We would go back in a heart beat.

Fantastic summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Camp Northern Light is a charming, cozy house on a small, peaceful pond. Our group of six adults fit comfortably and enjoyed the canoes, kayak, rowboat, hot tub, screened porch, outdoor fireplace, and dock. There was much to do at the camp and it was close to so many other things the adirondacks offer. The camp feels very private but not isolated, exactly what my family was looking for. The sunset view was gorgeous from the dock. We would love to stay again!
