The pictures of this cottage are very accurate, yet pictures can't capture the feeling. This cottage is right on a sandy beach with shallow entry into water. Perfect for kids or just wading. Super comfortable loungers and a large dock with Adirondack chairs for enjoying your favorite beverage. The screened in porch came in very handy. My favorite bedroom is the upstairs room, literally over- looking the lake.

The Lakehouse is in a small compound of Palmer Point. Perfect for our family gathering.

Owners are great to work with and very friendly. You will not be disappointed.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Palmer point with my family and just loved it. The screen porch was great, loved getting up in the morning, sitting on the porch to have a hot drink and enjoy the lake. The adirondack chairs on the dock are great for enjoying the mountain view and listening to the loons.Furniture on the porch is very comfortable as well as the living room furniture. The camp is spacious with lots of seating. Very clean, newly remodeled bathrooms. Love the claw foot tub upstairs. Really has that adirondack feel. Great place for a family reunion. The camp fire pit was great, large logs for seating and roasting marshmallows. Enjoyed getting to know the people staying in other camps. The beach is so nice right out the porch doors, great for kids. Very nice to have the pontoon boat rental right on the property, don't have to lug all your things to the car and then to the boat. It's right out the door! New owners are right there to accomodate any needs you may have and are continually improving the property. Would highly recommened.
