Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 typically vacations in the Old Forge area every year around the 4th of July and have stayed at the same place for the past 5 years or so. We decided that renting 3 rooms for a minimum of 3 nights was getting a little expensive, so we decided this year to rent a camp or house. I found Elmwood Lodge was still available and viewed the pictures and reviews. With Old Forge only being a short 20 minute drive away we all decided to give it a try!!.

Pictures did this property no justice as we all fell in love with it the minute we arrived!!

A short walk to the beach and fishing areas on beautiful White Lake made this all the more enjoyable. The Lodge was tastefully decorated and clean. The Owners were awesome to work with and very accommodating!!. I highly recommend this property to rent (as long as it's not when I want to rent it.. lol) The lot size is very big and all sorts of parking for our 3 vehicles. We cooked both outside and inside and enjoyed the huge fire pit. The kids had plenty of area for frisby, and playing ball. The neighborhood was Adirondack awesome and the neighbors were great!!. Thanks Kelly's for the stay and we are looking forward to our next Adirondack stay!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Elmwood Lodge! The house is beautifully updated and clean with plenty of room. The location on a dead end street was nice and quiet and gave our kids a safe place to ride bikes. We loved being able to come home from a long day at the beach or the water park and be able to clean up and then have a big bon fire! The games provided in the house were so fun for the kids, they played checkers every day.

My only recommendations would be that a food disposal would be convenient and would have saved us from having so much garbage. Also, the first day we were there the water had a very strong "well water" taste so we had to buy jugs of spring water. The water taste improved after about two days.

Terrific getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place if you're looking for something not too far from civilization. Grocery stores are within a 20 minute drive, as well as Old Forge and some great parks/trails and a terrific little beach and a restaurant and bar are a two block walk away. The house is wonderful and the fire pit was amazing. Very comfortable, updated and roomy! We had a five and six year old as well as a 77 and 83 year old with us and fun was had by all. The neighborhood is great for daily walks and runs as well. The owners are super helpful with details and questions and get back to you right away.

Fantastic family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Elmwood Lodge for our family vacation (2 families - 4 adults, 4 kids) and it was AMAZING! The house itself was well stocked, clean, as pictured/expected and very roomy which was such a blessing since it rained for 4 consecutive days. Having space to run, play as well as separate for personal time helped make our vacation enjoyable regardless of the weather and with lots of windows the house was light and welcoming even among the cloudiness. On the sunny days we had, the neighborhood was great for walking and the beach areas were perfect for our kayaks and kids to play in the sand. We loved being outside of Old Forge where it was less commercialized and not so crowded but still close enough to drive in. Ending the day with a campfire and clear sky filled with stars was the ultimate, relaxing experience. Jillian was very accessible and provided clear communication with an entire binder of information on the table upon arriving. This was the perfect get-away for our families!

Perfect vacation house close to Old Forge!

  • 5 of 5

The Elmwood Lodge was the perfect place for our group to stay for Columbus Day Weekend! We found the house to be extremely clean and inviting upon arrival. We loved the big common areas--our group of 8 had plenty of room to all sit in the living room together or in the kitchen. The living room furniture is very comfy and was a great space to play games and watch the football game as a group. The bedrooms are just as described (loved the fact that there were two king sized beds!) and the beds were all comfortable, especially in the master bdrm. Basic cleaning supplies, soap, paper towels and tissues were provided and there was plenty on hand.

The outdoor space was just as nice as the inside. The house has an incredible wrap around porch, huge driveway and fire pit. We spent the nights around the fire pit using the adirondack chairs they provided. We found fire wood about 10 minutes down the road for a great price. The yard is huge and the neighborhood was very quiet and nice.

The lake was about a 3 minute walk down the road, with lake access at the same spot. We took our kayaks out on White Lake and the surroundings were beautiful and very calm.

It was about a 20 minute drive into Old Forge where we explored several cute little shops and restaurants. I would recommend hiking Bald Mountain while you're there-- the view from the top was amazing!

Another added bonus to this property is that the White Lake Inn (restaurant/bar) is just a 30 second drive/3 min walk from the house! Very convienient considering everything else is at least a 10 minute drive away.

The wifi worked great and we were so happy this was provided with the rental considering most of us didn't have service without it!

Jillian was a pleasure to rent from, she was very helpful via email and made herself available by phone if we needed anything during our stay. We would recommend this rental and would stay here again!

Great family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This rental had everything we could ask for in a vacation house for multiple families with kids... quiet neighborhood, lots of space (inside and out), plenty of accomodations and within walking distance to a well-maintained beach. The house was very clean and comfortable and felt like a home away from home. The large yard was great for the kids to run around in, and the huge wrap around deck provided a place for all to rest and relax, any time of day. When we wanted to get out and about, Old Forge was just a short scenic drive away. The owners are very friendly, accomodating, and quick to respond to any questions we had. We highly recommend staying here if you have a large group or multiple families.
