Kayaking and canoeing on a pristine mountain lake, sunset views from the dock and deck, listening to the haunting cry of the loon echo at twilight, fishing from our rowboat, swimming or simply relaxing in a classic Adirondack chair with a good book--this is just some of what our camp on Gull Pond has to offer. Gull Pond is a beautiful unspoiled mile wide and 70 foot deep spring fed mountain lake, less than 15 minutes drive from the village of Tupper Lake, (two supermarkets, antique stores and restaurants), yet a world apart. Only 35 homes are hidden behind the trees along the four mile shoreline, and there is no public access to the lake. It has the feel of a wilderness lake, and when you are out on it, you may be sharing it only with the loons and the occasional beaver. This of course is especially true if you decide to visit during the fall, which is the favorite time of year for most locals. In the fall, the lake, which is never crowded, is almost always empty, and as the colors emerge, the sights are truly magical.
Our completely private 12-acre camp is situated lake side with 350 feet of lake frontage, and direct Western exposure for beautiful sunsets. Our neighbors on either side are several hundred feet away through the dense forest, in which you're likely to see deer from the deck or living room. Our dock provides easy access to the water, and there's a swimming platform a short distance off shore. We have both a single and tandem kayak, as well as a canoe and rowboat for your use. The lake is home to a large fish population of smallmouth bass, lake trout, yellow perch, and even some freshwater salmon.
The house is of modern construction, with a cedar plank walled living/dining room with cathedral ceiling. There is a comfortable Adirondack style sofa and love seat, and an Adirondack style dinner table. There is a fireplace/wood stove in case of cold mountain nights, and we have electric heat as well (the house is completely winterized). The lake view deck has a cedar picnic table and gas barbeque. The deck is adjacent to the living room, and there's screened lake view porch as well. Large sliding glass doors lead to the deck and also provide a view of the lake, only 75 feet away. The kitchen is thoroughly equipped with all modern appliances, including microwave, dishwasher, toaster-oven, coffee grinder, and more. There is a large washer/dryer setup in the full basement.
There are 3 bedrooms, a downstairs master with a queen size bed and lake view, and two upstairs, one with a high riser (2 twin beds), and one with a futon that converts to a double bed. Linens for five are included. There are 1 and 1/2 bathrooms on the main floor--the full bathroom has a combination tub shower, and the second a toilet and sink. We have a VCR/DVD player DVD and DirecTV satellite set with basic channels. There is also a bluetooth boombox, a library of good vacation reading (including Adirondack subjects) and a variety of board games.
If you want to leave for the day, you will find plenty of activities within an easy drive. Right in Tupper Lake is the new Adirondack must see--the $30 million Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks, also known as The Wild It's filled with fascinating exhibits, some with live animals, and an extended network of trails and outdoor exhibits including an onsite Adirondack pond. Tupper Lake also features a beautiful public golf course, and town tennis courts. A little further afield is the All-American city of Saranac Lake, and a few minutes past there Lake Placid, with the world renowned Olympic site, many fine restaurants and high end shopping. There are also many hiking trails within an easy drive from Gull Pond. The region also features many fine restaurants of all types, barbeque to haute cuisine. There's antiquing, river rafting, frequent festivals, theater and music, town events, and much more.
