About the property

Affordable & Comfortable Way To Enjoy The Wilderness Of The Central Adirondacks

You can enjoy being in the wilderness while still having the comforts of a cabin. Forest View Camp offers a low cost alternative to a hotel room and far better amenities than a camper or tent.

It is located very close to recreational activities in the Limekiln Lake State campground and abundant wilderness in the Moose River Plains. Situated in the central Adirondack region, Forest View Camp is located only 2 miles outside the town of Inlet and 12 miles from Old Forge.

Nearby activities: hike, mountain bike, day use of Limekiln campsite beach and boat launch, take a seaplane ride, horseback riding, boating, rent a pontoon boat, fishing, mountain climbing, beach activities, outdoor fire, grill out, read, relax on the front porch....

Nearby attractions & activities include the Vanderbilt's Great Camp Sagamore, the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain, The Wild Center at Tupper Lake, Bald Mountain trail to the Rondaxe Fire Tower, Rocky Mountain, Eagle Cliff, & Black Bear Mountain, WW Durant Lake Cruises at Raquette Lake, Big Moose Inn, The Woods Inn, Seventh Lake House, Limekiln Lake Campsite & Day Use Area beach & trails, Moose River Plains Wild Forest & Primitive Camping, Payne's Seaplane Rides at 7th Lake, Enchanted Forest Water Safari, Fulton Chain of Lakes / Old Forge Lake Cruises aboard The Clearwater, many seasonal festivals & craft shows, VIEW Arts Center of Old Forge, guided nature hikes by Gary Lee, and much, much more...

About Brad & Carol Foster

The Adirondacks (Inlet / Limekiln) is Brad's second home and he's been coming to Limekiln Lake since 1963. Carol & Brad were married in the Big Moose Chapel and have been staying here since 1997. Limekiln Lake is a very special place that is a pleasure to share with others.

Brad & Carol Foster purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Brad & Carol Foster chose Inlet

Forest View Camp has a rich history in this area. Originally built in 1915 using wood from the land, this cabin provided living quarters for the civil engineers of the time to build the road access system for Gould Paper Company, now called the Moose River Plains Recreation Area. The floor joists are hand hewn hemlock and the original pot-belly stove chimney still remains in the center of the camp (non-functional now). It was used for years as a base camp for hunters to access the remote wilderness of the Plains. Abandoned in 1983, it fell into a state of disrepair. It took nearly 2 years to refurbish, and now provides a very comfortable setting from which, you can thoroughly enjoy the wilderness. Camp Forest View is 102 years old this year.

What makes this cabin unique

People have described Forest View as a classic Adirondack camp. It is small, but is cozy and comfortable. Forest View Camp is a place that is off the "beaten trail" and provides convenient access to Limekiln Lake and the vast surrounding wilderness. Location, Location , Location ! Inlet and Old Forge are in the central Adirondack region, close to many fantastic attractions and activities. Nicely maintained and moderately refurbished, this cabin sustains its rustic character, while providing modern day comforts and amenities.

Great Family Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fabulous weekend with my wife and 3 daughters at the Forest View Camp cabin! It was just perfect for our needs. It was rustic enough to get the Adirondack Camping experience, but also modern and very clean to make you feel at Home! Great Hiking trails are right down the road, with Limekiln Campground entrance visible from the Front Porch. We plan on making this an annual event!

Forest View Camp is Special

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time renting a cabin and Forest View Camp was a great experience! The cabin has all the indoor decorative trimmings that make it quaint. No need to bring any kitchen items... it's all there! The house was very clean and furnishings are comfortable. We do suggest bringing your own cd's (with player) and dvd's. We're pretty sure we heard a moose early one morning! We would stay there again. :)

Brad and Carol have kept the quaint look of the "old" cabin but with everything you need. Spotless and gorgeous hardwood floors. Great outdoor fire pit. It's delightful and near Limekiln lake.

Cute and quaint

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for my family of 5. The kids loved it and it was nice to unplug for two days. Only recommendation would be a table to be able to eat outside.
