Wonderful home on very quiet pond

  • 4 of 5

Well-appointed home, fully updated. Very quiet pond and surroundings. We had to drive into Lake Placid every day for the tournament we were in the area for. That drive was pretty far, but the home itself was so much better than a small hotel room in town. Very happy with our time at The Owls Nest.

Peaceful property and cool house.

  • 5 of 5

My family had an awesome time on our summer vacation. The house is equipped with everything you need and the boats/paddle boards kept the kids happy! The interior is beautifully decorated too.

Excellent property - great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect - great location and house. The property is well appointed with lots of personal touches including a well stocked library. The pond is excellent for swimming and the mixture of boats provided hours of fun for all the family. The fall colors were fantastic. We felt secluded in a restful location. About 20 minutes drive to nearest town. Hot water could have been warmer but this is a minor comment - we would definitely comeback and highly recommend The Owls Nest for families and couples just getting away from it all.

An outdoor hot tub would be a great addition.

Fabulous stay at The Owls Nest in Saranac Lake

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Owls Nest with my family the last week of September and we had a great time enjoying nature and time with each other.

The house was clean, well appointed and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. My family likes to cook and we found the kitchen to be well stocked with dishes, utensils, pans, etc We enjoyed the outdoor property during the day - playing with our dogs in pond, and firing up the fire pit in the later afternoon to sit around talk, read and roast marshmallows. There is ample firewood to keep the fire stoked. In the evenings, we caught up on our favorite shows.

My husband and I also cycled into near by Tupper Lake for breakfast and coffee one morning (30 miles round trip). Great coffee shop. Lake Placid is fairly close as well, and have some great restaurants and shopping.

I was really impressed with The Owls Nest and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing family get-away!

What a great cabin in a great location! The Owl's Nest is perfectly appointed, and we felt right at home as soon as we arrived. It has all the amenities you could ask for (there is even a microplane grater in the kitchen for grating fresh nutmeg for your morning french toast - seriously!), and it also maintains a cozy Adirondack cabin feel. The best of both worlds - modern amenities and an escape to peaceful nature. The grounds and the beach front are exactly as pictured and all that you can ask for in an Adirondack get away. We couldn't have asked for a better week and will definitely be back.
