What makes this chalet unique

Haus Cronov is bright, cozy, comfortable, well stocked and provides a wonderful home-away-from-home atmosphere. It is set up so that everyone enjoys privacy yet also togetherness since all rooms are spacious and comfortable. The gas fireplace turns on at a flick of a switch, the atmosphere created underscores the cozy, bright friendliness of Haus Cronov.

The yard is huge, with a flat grassy area approx. 1 acre large, swing,firepit and forest area so that all outdoor summer and winter wishes can be fulfilled. In the forest the kids can play on huge ice-age rock. A small hill creates a great sledding area in winter.

Cozy Chalet with Great Screened in Porch

  • 5 of 5

Stephan was really clear about the description of the house. We were pleasantly surprised by the conveniences in the house (such as having home supplies available), and the beautiful screened in porch. Stephan also let us know about the stairs (because we have a 2 year old, a 4 year old and a 13 year old), and the road. We didn’t have a problem with either things, since our daughter listened to us well during our visit. If you have kids, I would recommend bringing toys for inside and outside.

The property was in good shape and the owner and caretaker were very responsive to any of our concerns. While we were there, a big storm came through and we were easily able to reach Lilt with questions. There are lists on the refrigerator with instructions as well.

The owner and manager provided excellent service and were very easy to work with. Lilt came over on the first day to check and make sure we were comfortable. The owner reached out to us through email mid-week to see how things were going.

We had a lovely time at House Cronov. It was exactly as advertised, and night times playing cards on the screened in porch were magical. The house has a warm, welcoming feel and is comfortable.

The Loon Lake beach down the road was our favorite place to go. Everyone was super friendly, and the water was very clear. We enjoyed seeing the eclipse at the beach, and walking to the nearby store to get sandwiches. Another day we went to Lake George and had a great time at the beaches there too. We loved the beach with the steamboats, and the ice cream in the Lake George area can’t be beat. The area is beautiful, the air smells clean and the water is clear. The people are so friendly and there are lots of things to do for the kids. We enjoyed the Fun Spot on a rainy day with the kids, and we actually got to go roller skating too!

Great last week of summer!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Haus Cronov! We loved the beach and lake. The kids played with sand toys, jumped off the dock, played basketball and soccer. We visited the indoor water park and Great Escape in Queensbury, just 30 min. away, and the Rock shop at the Stone Bridge and Caves. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils and condiments we needed, and we made nightly fires in the fire pit. Beds were comfortable, tons of blankets and pillows and everyone slept well. Starting to get cool and night and feel like fall. A great way to close out the summer!!

Loon Lake get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Haus Cronov. It was neat and clean with a well stocked kitchen. We very much enjoyed and appreciated the screened in porch and spacious lawn. Also found the deck to be the perfect place to view a meteor shower. Loon lake was great for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding or just hanging out on the beach. The location was also very convenient for a variety of day trips. Both the owners and caretaker were very helpful and prompt to respond. Great place for an Adirondack get away!

Adirondacks 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six loved this house. Plenty of space for everyone. The screened in porch was a perfect place for nightly board games. The house was situated close to everything we planned to do during our vacation from white water rafting, horse back riding, para sailing, lazy river tubing, wild walk, go Karting and going into Lake George. We would recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to the Adirondacks.
