About Angela Petitto
Relocated to the Adirondack Mountains 25 years ago when I chose hiking, paddling and snow shoeing as part of my daily life.
Angela Petitto purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Angela Petitto chose Paul Smiths
Osgood Pond is a truly pristine Adirondack lake - no eurasian milfoil!! With primarily canoes and kayaks, some quiet, electric fishing motors and an occasional small motor boat, tranquil is the word that best describes our little piece of the world!! Additionally, restoring this historic old camp has been a labor I've loved!
What makes this Cottage unique
Many local folks treasure this special Pond and happily cooperate with our Pond Stewards and the Osgood Pond Association to volunteer to keep it free of invasive water species, a rarity in most bodies of water these days. We hope you'll join in our tradition of keeping Osgood "hitchhiker-free" by washing any personal watercraft you transport with you before entering the pond!
No smoking in the cottage or on the screened porch
Pets are not allowed in deference to allergies.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Well equipped and comfortable historic camp property. Idyllically situated and with much to see and do on the water and in the local area. A very special place. It was wonderful to see and hear the Loons and to paddle on the pond and the river- stunning scenery. Conveniently placed for Saranac Lake for shopping and additional activities.
Glad you all enjoyed your stay, Sandy! Thank you for disregarding the false review of the prior renter who lied about having a dog in our "pet-free" home and was charged a cleaning fee. Hope to see you back again sometime!
Beds and bedding terribly uncomfortable. Some concern that bedbugs were in master bed after waking up the first day with bites on legs and torso. Dishwasher not working.
Mice infested. Two traps caught mice that then proceeded to drag traps around at 2:00 in the morning. Several other mice spotted scurrying under stove.
I could go on but not enough room here. We left 2 days early.
Renter LIED about having a dog despite strict NO PET POLICY and signing a LEASE stating same. Malicious, FALSE REVIEW is due to cleaning fee charged. Please read all 5 STAR reviews since 2012. It's simply AMAZING that NONE of these conditions occurred the prior week! Thank You.
Beautiful property, and the house is charming, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. Angela is a gracious and thoughtful owner. We can’t wait to go back!
Glad your little boys enjoyed themselves so much! Hope to see you all again next year, Katherine!
We enjoyed our visit thoroughly!
We loved it! Perfect for our small kids (5 and 3). They got to experience canoeing, fishing, swimming, hiking and loved having access to the water! The screen porch was key since our visit correlated with hungry mosquito season. We got a reprieve from the bugs and sun and could still enjoy the surroundings. Such a peaceful and well maintained camp that has everything needed for a great ADK vacation! Angela is great and so easy to work with. Thank you!!!
So glad you enjoyed your return to this part of the Adirondacks, Elaine, and pleased you enjoyed camp so much! Happy Summer to you and your family and hope you’re back again sometime!
Had such a wonderful stay. Hope to back again.
Charming, cozy, peaceful. Wonderful place to check out for a while. Canoeing on the pond is a slice of heaven. Love this place!!
There's also numerous activities in our little neighborhood: Easy walking and history tours can be enjoyed at White Pine Camp where President Coolidge vacationed. Paul Smiths College one mile away offers 24 hour, high-speed WiFi service, a Library, a Post Office, a Bookstore and a Restaurant run by the culinary students. And, a local Farmer's Market is held every Friday afternoon at The Vic where you'll also find art exhibits, a gift shop and seasonal concerts.
