Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our annual vacation week at Camp Pinecone. We have stayed at many other Adk rentals and Camp Pinecone was definitely one of the best.The camp is accurately described. It was perfect for our family of six. We loved the dock and waterfront area-swimming was great off the dock & the shallow sandy area was perfect for the dogs and our visiting four yr old nephew. Fire pit & abundant firewood & chairs made for perfect evening fires. As others have said, the new kitchen is incredibly well stocked & a dream to prepare meals= the outside gas grill is also excellent. The week was uncharacteristically hot for the area and the camp has several ceiling fans as well as 2 box fans that made sleeping more comfortable. We made all our own meals but we did get some unexpectedly hot delicious breakfast pastries fresh out of the oven from the nearby Trading Post. Lastly, Maureen was an absolute delight to deal with. She responded quickly to all of my emails, answered all my questions & could not have been more pleasant & accommodating !

Camp Pinecone was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends just spent a week at Camp Pinecone and we loved it! The house was well-equipped and cozy! The decks and dock are wonderful places to spend time. Swimming was wonderful right off the dock, and we were joined by a family of loons and a great blue heron who flew just overhead! We loved hearing the loons at night as well! Use of the canoe was wonderful, and we added kayaks from the marina just across the lake. Also enjoyed being close to village of Saranac as well as the Wild Center in Tupper Lake. We would highly recommend this home to others!

Fantastic Adirondack Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the camp was absolutely wonderful. We really loved the place. One thing we noticed, above and beyond every place we’ve stayed in the Adirondacks, was how well stocked and clean the house was. This was a detail that did not go unnoticed. The kitchen was amazing. New appliances, very clean cabinets and drawers, and lots of utensils. New pots & pans, and lots of choices made cooking really easy. My wife noticed everything. Even the fact that you had spices, salt & pepper, paper towels, etc. We really loved how well kept and how well stocked the place was. The welcome bag of s'more supplies was a very nice touch. It reminded us to keep stocking up on our trips to the store. We had s'mores every night. We also loved having carpet in the bedrooms. We’ve stayed at some rustic places years past, but yours felt so comfortable and so cozy – we loved it. The fire ring was the best we have had. We had a fire every single night. The canoes were great – used them constantly. We rented kayaks for a couple days from Hickoks. Fishing was great, either right off the dock, or on the lake and nearby ponds. Canoeing was great. Nearby sightseeing is also great - went to Lake Placid one day for a day trip, which everyone enjoyed.

Our trip was really, really nice and your house was fantastic. We are so glad we discovered you on VRBO.



Multiple bathrooms

Fire pit – best one we have had in the Adirondack rentals

Appliances – we are convinced to get Bosch when we renew ours at home!

Cleanliness – very clean house, cabinets, and furniture - cleanest we have seen anywhere in the Adirondacks

Size of bedrooms - very accommodating for our teenagers

Lakes and creeks nearby – lots of great paddling destinations

Hammocks – loved them.

Thanks to the owner - who was really great to work with. This is in our books as a repeat destination. Thanks for the great memories!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my two grown daughters and their families (grandkids are 4. 6, 9 and 11) rented Camp Pinecone the beginning of July and we are all still talking about what a great time we had. We used the canoes provided everyday along with the kayak and two paddle boards that my daughter brought. The lake was perfect for paddling and exploring and one day we loaded everything up and took a long paddle on the Raquette River - about a 7 mile paddle. We bought a canoe map and the paddling routes are endless. The house was great and looked just like the pictures - completely exceeded our expectations. The house has everything you need. It is also close to a lot of wonderful activities like the Wild Center and Lake Placid. We chose to climb Mt. Arab because it was a perfect hike for all ages but there are other wonderful hikes of varying degrees of difficulty that are nearby. Maureen was wonderful to work with - answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend Camp Pinecone to anyone that wants a great vacation in an absolutely beautiful setting.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 9 year old daughter and I rented Camp Pinecone the last week of August this year. We're from Philadelphia and it was well worth the drive! We are experienced travelers who have and have vacationed all around the country. Without hesitation I will say that this is one of the best vacations we have ever had. Maureen was an absolute pleasure to work with. The Adirondacks in general are incredibly beautiful. Camp Pinecone is wonderfully serene and comfortable. Sitting on the dock on the lake was so relaxing. The sunsets are beautiful. The house sits on Fish Creek Ponds which is a wonderful mid-sized lake. We loved fishing, swimming and canoeing on the lake. I rented a 17' motor boat and we waterskied and wake-boarded in front of the house. Fish Creek Ponds connects to Upper Lake Saranac and we took the boat exploring on that huge body of water and its many small islands daily. My wife and daughters read by the lake in the two hammocks every morning, evenings were spent by the fire-pit. There are incredible hikes a short drive from Camp Pinecone. The house is very nice, updated, clean and comfortable. I've rented houses everywhere in the US and I this is the first review I have ever written. Just felt compelled to do so. My family had a wonderful vacation.

Wonderful return visit!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second, week long, vacation at Camp Pinecone which we enjoyed as much or even more that last year. We traveled over 12 hours to get there and well worth it. Just a fabulous place to relax and unwind. Fabulous lake front setting, comfortable & very well supplied home and lots to do in the area. We especially enjoyed spending time on the lake and hiking on the many trails in the area. Owners great to work with. Highly recommend.
