About Tracey Hitchen Boyd

We are an adventurous family of four, and we love to get away to the Adirondacks, enjoying hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking and outdoor living in general.

Tracey Hitchen Boyd purchased this house in 2006

Why Tracey Hitchen Boyd chose Adirondacks

Our house is perfect for people looking for a quiet, casual experience, who also enjoy access to a village. The pond is the star feature, for its beauty and recreation. This house is truly lodge-like, with most of the comforts of home but not fancy, and not as finished as a full time residence. Easy access to hiking, local lakes, rivers and ponds, and your choice of Adirondack towns to explore.

What makes this house unique

We find that we truly relax here. It's a comfortable house on a quiet pond - it feels a bit like a tree house because of the private setting, and mix of sun and shade. The pond is perfect for paddling, a swim, cookouts, an fire in the firepit, early morning solitude and a nap in the hammock. There is parking for boaters trailering a boat (the pond only allows electric motors, but Long Lake and Lake Eaton have public access for motor boats).

Relaxing stay

  • 3 of 5

Overall this was a good place to stay. It was close to many things. The house and dock is in need of a little maintenance, but met our needs. Even though the house is shielded from the highway, the noise from traffic was a little disappointing. The pond was a great place for a relaxing kayak float.

Comfortable house with everything you would need to relax.

  • 2 of 5

The house was up to date and very comfortable. We were surprised to find that it was so close to the highway and that the pond was not really conducive for swimming or kayaking. It is a place to enjoy nature however. We like how close it was to places that we already knew and enjoy in Long Lake and Lake Eaton.

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

The Clear Pond property owned by Tracy Hitchen Boyd is a great home for rental. My wife and I wanted to vacation for a week in the Adirondacks.

The home itself is very well taken care of and much larger than expected. I estimate 8 people could stay here comfortably. The home is on Clear Pond which is downstream of Lake Eaton and empties into Long Lake. Clear pond is about 40 acres and since is does have flow, non-stagnant, its not very "pond-like". The owners have a care-taker in town who stopped by the first day to check in and show us around the home. He was just a phone call away during our stay. Amenities in the rental were as described, we didn't need to bring much from our home.

We had 4G Verizon Cell phone service from the home [which was not expected and a pleasant surprise!] and in town. It is about 1 hour from Lake Placid, 40 minutes from Saranac Lake. Surrounding area, Long Lake, is a small town but with plenty to do. The Trading Post up the road is a quick place to stop for amenities and a Lobster Roll on Fridays. Helm's Aero Service was a great sea-plane ride around Long Lake with owner-pilot Tom pointing out landmarks and giving local history.Restaurants in town have Good Eats [Adirondack Hotel, The Cellar, Northern Borne [Grocery], Custard's Last Stand, Growl and Grub [great deli and draft beers], Flavor [Coffee and Bakery], and other eateries we did not get to.

This was my first time using HomeAway.com and I would recommend Clear Pond rental to relatives and friends, and hope to have this kind of rental experience again.
