Saranac Lake Chain Region Vacation Rentals — LISTING ID: VR6068

BEAUTIFUL 9 ACRE LAKEFRONT RENTAL on stunning, tranquil Horseshoe Pond which connects with the Deer River Flow and offers miles of fishing/boating/kayaking surrounded by breathtaking scenery. A long sloping lawn ends in a path to dock and swimming raft. This is a very unique vacation rental. There is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath larger timber all season cabin decorated and furnished in the Adirondack style, with all modern conveniences including full kitchen, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. This cabin also features a pool room for family fun, TV with DVD player, wood burning stove, outdoor screened sitting room and deck. Sleeps up to 10 people comfortably: two upstairs bedrooms each with two full beds, first floor bedroom with queen. In addition, on the same piece of land, there is a 3-cabin original Adirondack Guiders Camp. 2 of the cabins are for living/sleeping and each have 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and enclosed screened porch. One cabin has a futon in one room and two twins in another, the other has a full in one room and futon in the other. The third cabin is a cookhouse with a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy eating area and a comfortable relaxation area with sofa, armchairs, TV with DVD player. Guiders camps such as this are a rarity in the Adirondack Park. It was originally built in the 1920s and is historically known as Garby's Cabins. The camp has been completely renovated by local craftsmen and offers a wonderfully authentic Adirondack vacation experience. The two cabins together sleep 8.The whole site is cradled by woodland and tall pines and offers privacy. Loons, otters, and bald eagle can all be seen on Horseshoe Pond. The rental comes with two canoes, a rowboat and two kayaks (no motorboats over 10 hp on the pond and no motorboat launch on the pond). Look skyward at night for clear views of the Milky Way and magical Northern Lights.The main large cabin may be rented separately but you will be guaranteed sole use of the entire site. During the summer we only rent Saturday to Saturday and always rent the main large cabin AND the Guiders Camp together. This is the perfect location and solution for a large group vacation or family reunion. Large cabin and Guiders Camp together sleeps 18. There is wifi in the main house from June-September, but no landline. There is good Verizon service and adequate ATT service.
