“The perfect getaway. Our large group of 8 adults and 6 young kids had plenty of room to spread out at the Inn. The rooms are large, and the beds are comfortable. It was very convenient having first floor laundry access, and the kitchen has plenty of cupboard and counter space and is well stocked with the essentials. The beach is small, but picturesque and the water clean. Everyone enjoyed jumping off the floating dock and using the kayaks and canoe. We even discovered a cool rope swing across the lake for the more adventurous of us. The kids loved wading in the creek down the road when we would collect our delicious water from the natural spring Cindy told us about-such a treat.. We loved the gondola ride up Whiteface Mountain and the Wild Center at Tupper Lake, both easy day trips. I think my only complaint is that the grocery stores in Saranac Lake were sparse and expensive, so I would recommend trying Lake Placid for groceries or to come prepared from home. Cindy was very communicative and gave us so much info to prepare for the trip. She has done a beautiful job with the inn, and we would absolutely make a return visit.”
“I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay! The Inn is a special home in a special location. I didn't know there was a rope swing across the lake so thanks for that information. I'm glad the Inn met your needs and allowed you to enjoy your family time. Please do come again!”

“Our family thoroughly enjoyed a weeks reunion at this lovely inn. The pictures dont do it justice - the rooms were spacious and very clean. We found all the amenities made our stay so relaxing and fun. The spacious porches and beautiful grounds added to the restful experience. The area was quiet and peaceful. The beach was big enough for all to enjoy. We loved the sandy, shallow end because we had small children with us. We had fun with the complimentary kayaks and canoe. Even when it was cloudy or a rainy day there was so much room inside to spread out or to gather for games. I highly recommend this inn. ”
“I love that your family could finally reconnect after the pandemic, and that the Inn at Loon Lake served you well. There is plenty of room for gathering and for spreading out, which makes it wonderful for larger groups - and smaller groups! Thank you for choosing my beloved place for your family's reunion.”

“We had a great vacation staying at the Inn at Loon Lake! What a beautiful house located on one of our favorite Adirondack Lakes. The wraparound porch and two separate staircases leading to separate sets of bedrooms added to the charm of the house.
It was a short walk to the beach, and we spent a lot of time using the canoe and kayaks. Everyone we met was super friendly.
Loon Lake is close to Saranac Lake where we saw amazing 4th of July fireworks.
Such a relaxing week! It was hard to leave. ”

“We loved staying at The Inn at Loon Lake!
The house is even bigger than the photos make it seem. The beds were very comfortable. There are two living spaces which was really nice. The walk to the lake is really short and perfect if you like swimming! There were not very many people in the area when we were there which was nice because we had the lake front to ourselves most of the time. The lake was pretty warm the whole visit which was nice!
There were plenty of extra towels, the kitchen was stocked with tons of utensils and cups, paper towels, she even left laundry detergent if needed. There were a couple outdoor games and indoor games for your use as well as books and puzzles.
There is also a tv but it was hardly used because we spend a lot of time outside or at the lake swimming.
The wrap around covered porch was SO nice to have! Especially on rainy days.
Cindy was great with getting back to me about any questions I had about the place!
“I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves. It definitely is a spacious home and the photos don't really do justice to the fact that it's over 4,000 square feet of space. Thanks for choosing my home for your family's gathering”

“Just perfect. We chose this house expecting it to be a lovely, secluded location for us to spend a careful Thanksgiving 2020 together. The home surpassed our expectations. As with any older home, there are charming quirks to the house. However, the owners have done a spectacular job updating the important stuff (kitchen, bathrooms, beds) while maintaining the character of the home. If you're looking for lots of action...restaurants, bars, shopping...be aware you will need to travel. But the absence of such distractions is part of the beauty of the home and hamlet. During our November stay, not another soul seemed to be in the village, and we felt as if we have the entire lake and historical hamlet to ourselves. We could have easily had twice the number of people (under different circumstances) and we would have still been completely comfortable in the house. Plenty of space to spread out, and cozy rooms to come together in. Cindy was an absolute delight to communicate with. She even made sure we had a roasting pan available for our turkey!”
“I'm so happy your family got to experience the magic of Loon Lake and the Inn at Loon Lake, and happy the Inn provided a cozy but spacious place for your Thanksgiving gathering.”

“This is a beautiful charming home my family stayed at for a week. Its a nice quiet place.The Lake is beautiful and peaceful. We kayaked at the lake and meet some very friendly neighbors. The whole family loved it from a grandmother down to her 7 grandkids. Great place to escape with lots to do. ”
“Thanks for choosing my house to make family memories. I particularly love it when multiple generations are there. I'm happy you enjoyed the beauty and the peacefulness. Porch-sitting and waving/talking to neighbors and passersby is a fun part of the house's location. Come back again!”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house! The house is spacious, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped, and we especially liked the built-in griddle on the stove for pancakes every morning! The wrap-around porches are great for congregating, as well as relaxing with a good book. In fact, our only disappointment was that the lake is not visible from the house. But it's a short walk to the beach, where the view is beautiful, and the water is very clean and shallow enough for little ones. The lake is great for kayaking, and yes, there are loons!
I will add that when I was first looking at the website, I hesitated about renting because one of the photos shows an open staircase with no railing, and I worried about its safety for our young grandchildren. But there is a railing now, so no worries!
We would definitely consider renting this house again! ”
“I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! I aim to continue to make improvements to the house, and am glad the railing felt safer for your little people. The porches are one of my favorite parts of the house, too, and then there's the lake! Thanks for choosing the Inn at Loon Lake. We'd love it if you returned!”

“I love this house. Its a beautiful home which has been preserved and lovingly restored with essential updates to the kitchen and bathrooms. This house, property and location provide ample opportunities for rest and relaxation. There were 6 of us who stayed here and there was plenty of room to work together in the newly renovated kitchen. It was well stocked with cooking utensils, had ample counter and storage space. We had fun in the game room playing games, building puzzles and having conversation. I loved sitting on the porches reading and waving to passers by. Theres plenty of porch space, seating and privacy for lots of folks. A favorite memory was spending time around the new fire pit in the back yard making s'mores. The owners have thoughtfully renovated, decorated and provided a great place to gather which is in keeping with the history of this location. Kayaks and life vests are provided and we enjoyed using them at the lake just a short walking distance from the house. I enjoyed it so much Im planning to return for another stay at this beautiful home. ”

“We stayed at The Inn at Loon Lake with our entire family to celebrate our 65th birthdays. This old home has so much character and offered great accommodations in a very historic area. The neighbors were so friendly and gracious. The beach truly is a very short walk. We brought canoes but there are 2 kayaks for use by owner. There is a spring down the hill to get fresh drinking water. We took advantage of the Wild Center in Tupper Lake which was so interesting for both the children and adults. Having 4 small children staying at the Inn, we cooked in and the kitchen was well stocked. We recommend this beautiful home.

“Our family of 10 stayed at this lovely step back in time Inn and made memories to remember for always. We had 8 adults and two children under 3 years old. The interesting accommodation is that there are two staircases for the upstairs but the upstairs is not joined. This gave an added amount of privacy for all guests. The weather couldnt have been better and with the ceiling fans the inn was very comfortable. The lake is within walking distance and just so refreshing and lovely. In the center of the inn is a full modern new kitchen with everything you could possibly need to cook wonderful meals. There are also many restaurants if one wanted to travel into Saranac Lake or Lake Placid. Honestly we didnt leave Loon Lake because it was so comfortable and the Inn and lake was all we needed. We are talking about making it an annual trip. I can speak for all of us, it was truly a vacation to remember. ”
“I'm so glad your family enjoyed your stay! The house does have the wonderful ability for people to gather but also to have space and privacy if they want it. I'm happy the house allowed your family to create new memories! Thanks for staying there!”
