Amazing Accomodations, Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family(parents,children,grandchildren) has been renting in the Adirondacks for the last 9 years and this site has offered us the most complete package yet. We have already booked our stay for next year and have only repeated our stay once before. In fact I could see us returning often. Linda has thought of almost everything to make our stay ever so convenient. The kitchen is well stocked with all the basics, linens and towels provided, great washing facilities, 2 refrigerators(we really need that) and plenty of water craft and many other recreational options to keep everybody engaged. The large yard also provided us the ability to set up all our yard games that we would play daily. As a host, Linda was warm and courteous and attentive to our needs. She also wanted to know of any shortcoming/needs so that they can be corrected for the next guests. The wrap around porch is awesome and adds so much convenience to the accommodations. Grab your morning coffee early before the kids arise and sit on the porch in the gentle breeze as the sun rises over the lake. Can't wait until next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. Your family is Great. It was great that you had so many activities planned for your family - and that you brought some great activities for the kids to have fun with. I enjoyed seeing the projects the kids were working on, and seeing your family over at the sand bar. Thanks for booking your reservation for next year and I am looking forward to seeing you then. The house was spotless and I so appreciate that.

Beautiful lakefront vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from an extended family get-together at CobbleCrest. Kids, parents, and grandparents all agreed the house was fantastic! The layout of the house was perfect for larger groups -- there was room for everyone to get together around the dinner table and on the beautiful screened-in porch, and also room enough to enjoy some time alone to read and relax. Kids and adults alike loved the inclusion of paddleboards, kayaks, ping-pong table, and volleyball net, not to mention the motorized dock. A big plus was the incredibly well-equipped kitchen which made it easy to whip up some nice family dinners for our large group. If you get tired of Star Lake (unlikely)-- Cranberry Lake and the Oswegatchie River are only 10 minutes down the road. Linda, the owner was easy to communicate with and she provided us all the information we needed for a great stay. Looking forward to returning for another vacation here in the future!

Great House, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Cobble Crest was amazing! We used it for my brother's bachelor party and had plenty of room for all 14 of us. I must admit we used the outdoor amenities more than the indoor ones. The motorized dock was by far the most utilized. Being right on the water was great and the fire pit was perfect for cooking and then sitting around at night. Everything completely exceeded our expectations!!

I was here for 2 nights with a bunch of friends and family. We filled every bedroom (15 people) and did not feel cramped in any way. The view was beautiful the fire pit was perfect. There were no neighbors right on top of us so we didn't feel like we had to talk quietly at night while outside at the fire. The platform raft was perfect for fishing with a bunch of people. The furnature, tv and all other amenities available to us were luxurious and worked perfectly. The owner was really nice and gave us nice walk through when we first got there. We made sure to clean up after ourselves and put everything back the way it was when we arrived and made sure we completed though the leaving checklist (supplied by owner) and we got our security deposit back in a timely manner. I have recomended this place to many family and friends of mine. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
