About the property

Beautiful Cabin Over The Water On Long Pond With Attitude Adjustment Deck

Long Pond Camp is situated upon a peninsula surrounded by water in the Western Adirondack Mountains. Long Pond is about one and a half miles long with many surrounding ponds such as Round Pond, Rock Pond, Trout Pond, Clear Pond and Mud Pond which are all within an easy walking distance. Jake's Pond is a beautiful, longer walk on one of many marked trails. Some of the ponds can be paddled to directly or paddle down the Oswegatchie River to Rock Pond, Trout Pond or Mud Pond. There are maps at Camp for your use to personalize your own Adirondack Adventure. For snowmobiling, Camp is located near Lewis County #5 and #8 trails - all beautiful trails to anywhere in the state.

The cabin has three bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, screened front porch, dining and living area and its own private 'Attitude Adjustment Deck' right over the water. The boathouse offers a wood stove and gas heater for the cooler Adirondack months.

Camp sets on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by water. A screened porch and open deck overlooking the beautiful Adirondacks. No matter what the season, every day is beautiful. The summer sun off the water, winter all in white or the fall with its intense colors. The Camp is surrounded by huge white pines, hemlock woods and maple hardwoods for color and fragrance. Camp is located 1/4 mile on a private driveway off peaceful Long Pond Road. Camp is approximately ten miles from the Village of Croghan.

Included with the cabin are two kayaks, a canoe and a rowboat are available for your enjoyment. Plus, Camp has a wonderful sandy beach which is perfect for swimming. Enjoy a game of horseshoes or a campfire by the pond at night.

Rest assured, the boathouse and main house are completely separate with their own parking, beaches, campfires, docks and grills. Please see Listing #3560285 for details on the main house. We offer a discounted rate for the boathouse per week if rented with the main house. This makes Camp perfect for family times or entertaining guests who want their own space. Camp has been enjoyed for five generations and will be by you and your family, as well. Camp surrounded by nature, beauty and serenity stays in your heart until you return.

To make your stay enjoyable we supply wood for the campfires and wood stoves, blankets, pillows, bathroom tissue, paper towels, dish towels, dish soap, cleaning supplies and basic spices.

Pleasant Cabin

  • 3 of 5

I have mixed reactions to my week at the Long Pond Cabin. The cabin was very comfortable and had all the amenities I needed. I enjoyed the "attitude adjustment" deck in the mornings but by afternoon the sun made it too hot. An umbrella for shade would have made a big difference. The pond was beautiful and I was very fortunate to have excellent weather for kayaking.

Cons: I felt the description of the property was a bit misleading. The pictures and the claim of completely separate docks, boats, and beaches led me to believe that there was some separation between the main house and the boat house cabin. Not so. The parking area for both residences is right outside the cabin's back door and is the view from the small screened in porch. The main house is practically on the doorstep of the cabin so there is little to no privacy. When I was there the main house was accommodating several adults and three small children. Though the people were nice enough, I had not counted on the close encounters and accompanying noise. Beaches? There was one beach by the big house.

Also, renters need to be aware that during the summer months the Oswegatchie Educational Center camp is directly across from the cabin. This camp has an average of 150 11 to 18 year old campers each week. Sound carries. Kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards keep the pond busy and mealtimes feature chanting and yelling. None of this is terribly disturbing if you are expecting it and the kids can be fun to watch.

There is no TV reception, only DVDs to watch, though the main house apparently does have TV stations. No cell coverage. ( I had to drive approximately 5 miles to get a signal). No internet. And you have to take your garbage when you leave!

Shortly after I arrived I needed to contact the owners and left messages for both Dave and Erin. Of course they couldn't have called me back with no service! Fortunately Dave happened by the next day so I was able to resolve my issue. It was disturbing, however, that he told me they had not received my messages because they were out of cell coverage range working at another residence. Another day I had a problem with electricity. I was able to contact Erin, who was in Syracuse, and she was going to contact Dave and/or a neighbor. Turned out neither Dave nor the neighbor were around to help. Fortunately I was able to solve the problem on my own but if I had not been able to, I would have been without electricity for ????

A relaxing lake setting

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the woodsy boat house on Long Pond. It provided a great view of the lake and some wonderful walking trails. The setting also provided a wonderful opportunity to watch youth campers having fun on the water. It brought back many memories of our experiences camping as kids. If you want to get aware from everything, this is a good setting for a small family or couple.

Great week,cool cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. The kids had a blast kayaking and hiking. Weather didn't really cooperate, but great anyway. The boathouse feels bigger than it looks, we had 5 people staying, and it worked out very well. Kids already told me they want to go back next yr

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very homey and inviting with a beautiful view of the pond. There's lots of exploring to do on the water and on foot due to the great location. If you're a nature lovers and like to watch and interact with animals this place is great for it.

You can feed a few different species of fish (bullhead included) right of the deck and there is a big snapping turtle that likes to frequent the dock too and he absolutely loves bread. The loons are fun to watch too!!! All around a wonderful place and very relaxing. Def would love to go again in the future!

Peaceful retreat with wonderful owners

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice property that offers peace and quiet from the outside world. There is an educational center very close by but we barely knew they were there - only when we saw them on the trails around the house.

The pond is large enough to paddle around on for several hours and connects to other ponds for more water travel. The kayaks, canoes and row boat are in very good condition and we appreciated the generosity of the owners in letting us use them.

The owners are very kind and responsive to all questions and any needs. They really care about their renters comfort and enjoyment of the property.

This was really a wonderful place to get away from it all and relax. We would return again.
