Suzan fisk purchased this cabin in 2013
I spent every summer here at Efner Lake. My parents purchased our cabin when I was a child. Our cabin is our summer home. Stephen & I purchased the new property as an investment.
This property offers a quiet, beautiful place to relax and enjoy Adirondacks. It's the best of both worlds: Varied activities within a 30 minute or less drive, but you return to the peace, the incredible air and water of the cabin site.
The cabin itself has been described by previous guests as 'Adirondack chic'. The knotty pine paneling decorated with original paintings is cozy. There is plenty of space, both inside and outside for gathering the family or group together or going your own way for a walk, a swim, a nap or whatever makes you relaxed.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at The Little Camp! Everything we needed to cook a huge feast and such a comfortable place to enjoy cold weather and woods. Our two dogs LOVED their stay too!
We wanted to spend Christmas away from it all and with the dogs. We sure succeeded. We are avid HomeAway travelers, and this was one of the top cabins. Everything we needed was there. Cabin was clean, well kept, and modern. Quite a charming "personality" it has.
Suzan was wonderful and friendly. Communication with her was clear and steady, though she was never intrusive. She left us goodies, chocolate candy, and even a Christmas tree-all appreciated.
We are always looking for cabins to revisit-this is definitely one of them. Thank you for your hospitality. We will be back!!!! The dogs had a blast and lots of privacy.
My friends and I were looking for a quiet getaway. Mrs. Fisk made making reservations very easy even though we contacted her short notice. Everything was readily available. We just had to bring ourselves and some food. We were 9 people and had to fight for who got to sit on the couch :) the house is exactly as it looks in pictures and is pretty secluded as was mentioned before booking, but a half hour drive to Saratoga Springs and half hour to the Lake George area. Overall, we had a blast.
We were 2 couples who stayed at the cabin for 3 nights. we came to see the foliage and it was a great experience. The place in beautiful, the kitchen well stocked with lots of basic groceries. the arrangement of the house for us was great with 2 separate bathrooms. The interaction with susan was very easy and she was extremely responsive and helpful regarding our questions. Karen who greeted us when we arrived was so pleasant, and got us some cakes to make us welcome after a long drive. The surrounding area is just glorious and I am sure that in the summer, utilising the lake can be even more fun. All in all I would definitely recommend staying and would certainly cosier coming back.
We rented this cabin for a weekend of relaxation with friends, and it did not disappoint! There was seven of us total, and we fit very comfortably. Our stay was at the end of September, so the lake was quiet since most of the summer vacationers had already left. It was peaceful and tranquil - just what we had wanted. We were even blessed with some deer sightings! There is plenty to do with a room full of board games, quite a few water vessels, and a perfectly located firepit. The kitchen is fully stocked - really anything you can think of. Suzan was a wonderful host who showed us around, and answered any questions you might have - and she leaves you with a delicious treat! I would absolutely rent this Little Cabin again, and have zero regrets about our choice. Thank you for everything Suzan!
Stayed for a week after Labor Day with my fiance and my brother and his girl friend. Had September's predictable great weather which included a mountain thunderstorm. The lake was warm and free of crazy boaters and the outdoor fire pit was well stocked with wood. Susan and Stephen Fisk were terrific hosts and were available for any questions we had. They provided everything we could possibly need with the exception of a covered butter dish but I know it will be there from now on.
Pleasant environment, well equipped kitchen. Upstairs bedroom too small for average size, 55+ couple. We hit our heads on the low eave several times; only 1 night table and one reading lamp. When we stripped the bed, we discivered blood on the mattress cover from a previous gues. Sue and Steve are helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the firepit and lake.
'The Little Camp' is located on a small, private lake. There is no public access to the lake; only owners and guests. There are only 25 - 30 cabins on the entire lake.
