Designed and constructed in 2008, this is a year-round log cabin is right on pristine 600-acre Osgood Pond in the St. Regis Canoe Area, 10 miles north of Saranac Lake.

NONAME is the newest home halfway down White Pine Road which is a two mile off shoot of Rt 86. At the end of the Road is White Pine Camp which was the summer White house in 1929. The house has upscale Adirondack style furniture that is very comfortable. Complete with deep Jacuzzi, a handcrafted raised outdoor shower off the living room and a modern kitchen with all gadgets and a gas stove.

The kitchen is open with grey soap stone counter tops, and the dining and living areas face the 600-acre pond and wrap around deck with new Weber grill and lots of seating. A stunning river rock fireplace complements the downstairs. Off the living room by a short hallway there is a lovely bath and shower and two spacious bedrooms; one with log bunk bed and matching double bed, and the other with a log framed queen. Off the kitchen is a gorgeous screened in porch with ample seating and a view which faces the trees and sunset over Osgood Pond. On the second floor is the master bedroom with a queen mattress you don't want to leave. Across from the bed is a built-in gorgeous gas fireplace. A few steps away from the queen bed is luxury bath with an adjacent stall shower. Adjoining the bathroom wall is a rustic workspace of a pine slab desk floating from the wall and a carved wooden stool. Off the master bedroom, separated by beautiful glass and wood framed French doors, is the loft with a comfy futon, double mattress handmade of pine logs, rocking chair and cable TV. The loft is above the living area and looks out to the Pond.

The house furnishings are playful with plenty of cool taxidermy. You will meet George a Caribou, Woodsy a black/ cinnamon bear, Wally a beaver, Bullwinkle the moose and, Alfred the fisher, Toby the red fox, Buck a deer head, a bear skin rug, Sparky the Lynx, a wolf skin, two birds, several fish from the Pond and Rocky the raccoon who watches over the Pond. Just added in 2015 is Arthur the Opossum, Wiley the Coyote, and Paws a blond rare racoon. The animals are quiet and don't beg for food like our canine visitors! Email us for additional photographs of NONAME.

. Most of the surrounding lake property is "Forever Wild" and protected by New York State. Osgood Pond is secluded with little motorboat traffic. A new Lean To was just constructed by the lake. Great for summer sleeping,
There is no water skiing or jet skiing allowed. 5 HP motors are the maximum permitted on the lake. Days go by where you see only a few kayakers or a fishing canoe. More loons than humans! The Adirondack Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths (VIC) is just two miles away. Explore its endless nature trails. Enjoy forest mountain biking along The Red Dot and Jack Rabbit trails a hundred yards from the house. The sunsets are unsurpassed.

The water is sparkling clean and warm. Swim out to the floating dock and dive back into the bliss. Or lounge on the dock, in the lean to or beach area as you watch your children or grandchildren from just a few feet away. Get in one of five kayaks, canoe or rowboat and paddle for miles around the Pond or along the Osgood or Jones Rivers as you spy bald eagles soar overhead, turtles bask on logs, and loons popping up beside you. Glide past (or over) beaver dams, spot otters playing along the shoreline, and Great Blue Heron diving for fish. Follow a kingfisher down the river. Fish right off dock or all-around Osgood Pond. Fall in the Adirondacks is spectacular with cool days and gorgeous orange, red, and yellow leaves. Winter offers cross country skiing and snowshoeing right out the door. This is paradise at any time of year!

Magnificent Lean-to built completed in 202110 feet from shoreline overlooks the pond and its sleeps several in rustic setting.
New steps to lake build in 2021 with handmade rustic guard rails

COMMENTS FROM 2011 RENTERS: "Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home for the week. It couldn't have been a more perfect vacation. Every aspect was better than anticipated. Your beautiful home with all its furnishings and great location on Osgood Pond provided us with a wonderful, relaxing Adirondack-experience. The weather was gorgeous all week. My husband and I tried kayaking for the first time ever and loved it. Our guests enjoyed the fishing. I love to cook and was grateful for your well-equipped kitchen. We toured the Olympic sites and drove to the top of Whiteface. I'm glad you encouraged me to bring our bikes: I got my 30 minutes in every day." "We left with some wonderful memories and a wish to return. "The home is really spectacular- enjoyed the peacefulness. "We had a great week at your camp. The house is beautiful and very nicely outfitted." "We are heading home this morning, and we have had a wonderful week. It was a true October week in the Adirondacks with rain and sunshine on and off, with the weather changing by the hour. Your home here is a real gem - beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We hope to return. I finally found the bass in the pond - landing a beautiful largemouth, followed by a very nice smallmouth - both over three pounds. "COMMENTS FROM 2012 RENTERS: We really enjoyed our vacation on Osgood Pond. It is a perfect spot for a family vacation, especially with small children. We had a great week at NONAME, many thanks. Wanted to let you know we'd like to return again next summer, same week (August 3 - 10). Hi Frank. We loved No-Na-Me. The decor is just great. It manages to be light and uplifting while still feeling like the Adirondacks. We enjoyed the dock, the deck, the porch, the hammock.... swam, paddled, hiked in the VIC. Launched our kayaks at the state launch site and paddled over. You did a great job creating it and we enjoyed it thoroughly. We loved the cabin and Osgood Pond! Thanks again for the great location and accommodations! Very good, we had a great week. We had a great week. The photo is from your dock. Wow, what a beautiful place! And I never use the b word. We are already having a great time. What an awesome time we had. I will write up a review online. Also, I just referred another friend who is looking for a place to take his family next summer. COMMENTS FROM 2014 GUESTS: Hello Frank, the house was great, and we had an excellent vacation. We enjoyed the dock and all the boats very much. Thanks for everything, Scott TCOMMENTS FROM 2015 GUEST: Renter's Review: I have stayed at many rental cabins over the years on Osgood Pond, and this was by far my favorite. There were eight of us (teenage through adults) and we were very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with pans/pots/utensils, there are plenty of linens, a good washer/dryer, and the water is potable. There is one canoe and several kayaks and pfds, a couple bikes, etc. The walk down to the private dock is steep but perfectly fine for able bodied people. For some reason Crocks seems to be the best shoes for walking down the wood steps There is a nice size propane grill and a lovely fireplace. It's in a great location for picking up nearby hiking trails as well. Would definitely recommend! Will miss the loons.... Comments from 2016 Guest: Renter's Review: NO NA ME Camp was an excellent place to enjoy the Adirondacks and Osgood Pond. The chalet and furnishings are in good condition and very well equipped. In particular, there was ample cooking utensils, tableware, etc. There were four of us and we had plenty of space. A big factor in our enjoyment was the WIFI which kept all of us on our electronic devices. We particularly enjoyed activities on the lake and there were canoes, kayaks, life vests and an anchored raft. Nearby is the Paul Smith College which has numerous hiking / walking trails through the forest. Location was ideal for us in that it is away from town congestion but Saranac Lake and Lake Placid are easy drives from the camp. In summary, we highly recommend this camp. It met all of our expectations. We have rented two others in the area, and this was the best.
