Welcome to Adirondack Heaven! Bear Lodge is the perfect place for your next family vacation spring, summer, winter and fall. Our beautiful log cabin on the lake is the ideal setting for making memories that will last a lifetime.

Bear Lodge is on the shore of Adirondack Lake in the Town of Indian Lake. The cabin is situated off a quiet road on a two acre lot lined on both sides with trees leaving the setting private, peaceful and serene. Adirondack Lake is perfect for a family to enjoy fishing, swimming, canoeing, and quieter pursuits. There is a 10hp limit on boats for non-owners.

Indian Lake is a small town centrally located in the Adirondack Park at the intersections of Routes 28 and 30. The town offers the convenience of local restaurants, movie theatre, ice cream shop, gas stations, convenience stores and some small shops. These are about five minutes from the cabin and easily walkable.

The home itself is a beautiful log cabin. The master bedroom is on the main floor with a hand-carved, bear-themed queen bed and large sitting area. The second bedroom has two twin beds, perfect for kids. The main bath has a tub/shower and mirrored vanity with room for your personal items. The loft features a queen-sized sleigh bed and a breathtaking view. This bedroom has a private bath with shower and skylight. For more photos and information, please visit our personal website (listed at the bottom of this web page under Owner's Contact Information).

Awaiting your entrance in the spacious great room are a cathedral ceiling, skylight, hardwood floors, and a wall filled with large windows giving you a spectacular lake view. The sliding glass doors lead to a large, multi-level deck with seating for you to relax and enjoy the lake and the smell of fresh pine forest. The stairs in the great room feature a rustic railing and lead to the loft.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, pots, pans, dishes and silverware as well as various bowls, pitchers, and tools. Outside there is a charcoal grill for your barbeques.

From the deck, follow the path to our dock and beautiful Adirondack Lake. Take the canoe for a peaceful glide around the lake, or row the 12' fishing boat. There is a small shed by the lake with life preservers of various sizes and fishing gear. Just off the dock is a swim raft which is fun for splashing into the cool, clear water. You might enjoy just sitting on the dock, dipping your feet in the lake and watching for some of the many birds of the Adirondacks.

In the evenings, build a fire in the lakeside fire pit and roast marshmallows, sing camp songs, tell ghost stories, or just enjoy the bountiful stars and peaceful evening air.

The selection of activities in Indian Lake is plentiful. Discover nature on some of the abundant hiking trails. Difficulty levels vary from easy strolls to demanding mountain climbs so there is something for everyone. Fall is a wonderful time to visit the trails and delight your senses with the spectrum of colors as the leaves change. Other activities in town include white water rafting, golfing, and mountain biking. Bikes can be rented at Pine's Country Store in town.

The cabin is close to other attractions in the Adirondack Park. Blue Mountain Lake is just 13 miles west and offers the must-see Adirondack Museum, and Great Camp Sagamore. Among the additional possibilities are Enchanted Forest Water Park in Old Forge, Lake Placid's Olympic village, Lake George Village and Shopping Outlets, Great Escape Theme Park, and Water Slide World.

In winter, our heated home is the perfect base from which to enjoy many winter sports. There are a variety of downhill ski slopes nearby including Gore Mountain which is 17 miles to the east. For the beginner, there is a small hill with two slopes and t-bar in Indian Lake. This hill is also great for sledding. An ice rink is available (weather permitting) and rentals are available at Pines Country Store. There are three cross-country ski/snow-shoe trails in town with one right down the street from the cabin.

Smoking and pets are not allowed indoors or out on the property and that policy is firm due to family allergies.

We welcome you to enjoy a vacation stay at our little bit of Adirondack heaven on earth. We're sure your stay will be one your whole family will love and talk about for years to come. Give us a call!
