Welcome to The Gazebo, a well-appointed cottage set among cedars and pines and overlooking a quiet, jetski-free lake! It's only a few steps from the deck to the waterfront for swimming, paddling or sunning at the Canoe House. This is a place to experience life differently from the rest of the year. With no television or phone on site, you can create the relaxing environment you want during your visit.

Your days here might be filled with paddling on the pond and Osgood River; connecting with the extensive waters of the St. Regis Wilderness Canoe Area; climbing St. Regis Mountain (visible from the pond) or many other easy to difficult peaks nearby; hiking the Interpretive Center trails, the Red Dot trail or numerous trails in the area; fishing the pond for Bass and Pike; swimming from the dock or bicycling and exploring less-traveled roads.

Osgood Pond, described as a "pristine mountain lake" is approximately 1-1/2 miles long. Much of its shoreline is forever-wild state land.

Let's go inside...
The living room is warm and cozy, a wonderful place to relax and read. Choose a book from the bookcase and enjoy it in the comfy sofa or chairs. Listen to the FM or put on some music.

Dining room, kitchen and pantry are equipped with everything you need for cooking and dining.

The bedroom has a king-size bed and large dresser and closet. There's a full bathroom with tub/shower. Bedding, blankets, linens and towels are provided.

A deck overlooks the lake and includes a gas grill, table and chairs. Check out the hammock for snoozing on warm summer afternoons.

The Canoe House is not only a place to shelter canoes but your outdoor living space. Open the double doors to the beauty of the lake to enjoy coffee or a glass of wine at the end of the day. Sit and watch a rainstorm sweep down the pond. At the end of the day, watch the stars appear while listening to the Loons serenade.

The Gazebo and Canoe House are historic structures. Both part of the Harrison G. Otis camp (built in 1906). It was originally an open-air gazebo. On warm afternoons, elegant ladies gathered to sip tea and enjoy the cool breezes from the lake. After dinner, gentlemen retired to the gazebo to savor brandy and cigars. Their conversation interrupted only by the call of the Loon.

Over the years, the Gazebo was enclosed and it became a charming cottage. The original roofline and the cathedral ceiling still remain. The lake-facing sliding glass doors invite views of flower-filled window boxes, majestic pines and rippling waters.

Birders and nature lovers can follow the path of Teddy Roosevelt to discover why the Adirondacks are called a "birders' paradise". By trail or canoe you'll discover Spruce Grouse, Black-backed Woodpecker, Boreal Chickadee, varied Warblers and the Crossbill.

Relaxing on the Canoe House deck you might see the Bald Eagle swoop down for a fish - the Great Blue Heron wing along the shore or watch and listen to the Loons. Small (and large) animals abound: squirrels (including the amazing flying squirrel), chipmunks, raccoons, beaver, otter, turtles, deer and Moose. Water and land plants too many to mention. Beautiful butterflies and moths are here, too.

We welcome you to the Gazebo on Osgood Pond.
