About Rose & Bruce Burke

Pride of ownership in our cottages for over 30 years! Bruce with his green thumb has planted many perennials over the years as well as undertaken many renovations and upgrades to our cottages. This is a lovely property located on one of the most pristine lakes in the central Adirondacks - Indian Lake Let us advise you of some of our favorite hikes - restaurants - most wonderful experiences in this last, great wilderness in New York State

Rose & Bruce Burke purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Rose & Bruce Burke chose Adirondacks

This is a wonderful spot for your family to ENJOY in a very remote, unspoiled wilderness area - the hamlet of Sabael in the Township of Indian Lake. Walk to the general store for ice cream and sundries - take a hike! Bring your bathing suits and jump in the lake! Bring your fishing gear and try to catch the elusive Lake Trout or bass off the dock. Paddle across the lake to Norman's Cove and climb Baldface Mountain - one of the best boat access only hikes in the Adirondacks! You may even spot a Moose or 2 - perhaps a bear or 2 - perhaps deer or other wildlife! And don't forget the hummingbirds who love to summer here too!

What makes this cottage unique

A taste of living in the wilderness, with all the amenities of home including cable TV and WI-FI in our Adirondack style OUTDOOR "Internet Cafe"

(Cell phone service in town) Free use of Kayaks and canoes with paddles and life jackets on a first come, first served basis. Uniquely sandy beach and swim float. Marina nearby for boat rentals.

Cancellation / refund policies not posted

  • 1 of 5

Cancellation policies should be posted in advance but they aren't. We had to cancel our reservation with 3 weeks notice and received back all of our deposit but $75.00. I think the policy should be outlined. I felt that 3 weeks was ample notice and I'm quite sure that with the beautiful weather we had this past week that the cabin was most likely rented. Things happen and plans change and refund/cancellation policies should be outlined.

THIS IS A DELIGHTFUL PLACE !

  • 5 of 5

WE WILL RETURN! WE ENJOYED THIS HOUSEKEEPING COTTAGE ON BEAUTIFUL QUIET PICTURESQUE INDIAN LAKE! A HUGE TREAT!

AN OLDER BUT CLEAN AND SWEET COTTAGE WAS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED TO ENJOY THIS SPOT IN THE ADIRONDACKS.!

WE PADDLED THE CANOE ON THE LAKE OUTSIDE OUR PLACE!

THIS WAS A CHANCE TO GO BACK IN TIME AND YET HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEEDED AND MORE!

WE RECOMMEND THESE COTTAGES TO OUR FRIENDS!

PERFECT FOR US! OWNERS WERE GREAT! THEY INFORMED US OF THE HIDDEN GEMS TO VISIT NEARBY! YES! WE WILL RETURN!

False Advertising!

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I spend the Labor 2015 weekend in this cottage. It was a disaster. We would not recommend it to anyone. This is really a false advertising. The place was super dated, dirty, dusty and humid. It hasn't been clean in a long time that's for sure. There is no privacy here. The houses next door were privately owned and very loud. Scream, couple fights, bad language definitely ruined our evenings. Very disappointing!!

Owner's Response: We apologize and are extremely sorry for the conditions you found at our cottage #4. We had a new cleaner and manager at the time who have since been fired. Since your review (and our return from vacation) our cottage has been completely scrubbed from top to bottom with new kitchen dishes and linens. We are ready for our customers beginning this spring and hope you will return to see and enjoy this wonderful spot in the Adirondack mountains in the future. Sincerely, the Burkes on Indian Lake.
