Central Region Vacation Rentals — LISTING ID: VR6879

Bayberry Cottage is a private, waterfront cabin on Lake Francis, a pristine glacial lake in the heart of the Central Adirondack region that's perfect for swimming, fishing, canoeing and just relaxing. Its secluded location makes it a peaceful escape for anyone looking to "get away from it all" and experience the Adirondacks in all their natural, wild beauty.

Three hundred acres surrounding Lake Francis have been lovingly stewarded by the Farrell family since the 1800's, while the remaining shoreline of the private, mile-long, half mile-wide lake is "Forever Wild" as part of the Adirondack State Forest Preserve.

Bayberry Cottage, one of the few structures on the lake's shore, is the real thing: an authentic, 1920's Adirondack cabin built just feet from the water's edge. The cabin is an ideal hideaway for nature lovers looking for complete solitude and peaceful lake views. Bayberry is simply furnished and retains an old-fashioned, rustic feel; and its many windows provide gorgeous lake views from almost every room. On warm nights, enjoy a bonfire or cook out on the fire ring just steps from the porch. On chilly evenings, cozy up to the large, handmade stone fireplace in the living room. An enclosed porch also makes a comfortable perch to enjoy the mountain air and scenery day or night, no matter the weather.

The cabin's grounds include a large, private dock for swimming, fishing, and relaxing. A rowboat and canoe are included, and guests are encouraged to explore the lake's natural bays, coves, and islands. Fishing is another favorite activity here at Lake Francis, and these waters are home to Northern pike, largemouth bass, perch and bullhead (electric trolling motors only).

Generations of campers have made trips to Lake Francis a treasured family tradition. Its remote location and rustic charm ensure a rare taste of the real Adirondack spirit, where guests can finally "unplug" and reconnect in a place of wild beauty, where the only sounds most nights are the calls of Northern loons, bullfrogs, and crickets.

Lake Francis is located 1 and 1/3 miles from Route 28 near Indian Lake, NY.
