This welcoming log cabin on Lake Tekini is perfect for year round enjoyment. Just minutes from Old Forge, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath getaway offers all the comforts of home in the heart of tranquility. Step out onto either of our two decks to enjoy beautiful views of the lake, and launch a canoe or kayak from our dock. Both are on site for you to do just that! Jump in at the shoreline with a sandy bottom to greet your feet, or take a short stroll to the neighborhood beach swimming area to build a sandcastle. Hardwood floors, a great room with cathedral ceilings, and an eat-in kitchen add to the Adirondack ambiance of this charming retreat.

The master bedroom is complete with hand-carved wood furniture, including a king size bed to relax in after a day of adventure. The oversized loft comes equipped with both a king and full size bed. On the lower level, a private room furnished with a queen bed is just steps away from the lower deck and the great outdoors.

For winter enthusiasts, Trail 6 is just beyond the front door. Curl up by the wood stove after a day on the trails, with a separate basement entrance to store all your snowmobile gear! Room to park a trailer and at least 2 cars. Backup generator on site.

Spectrum Wi-Fi and cable TV are available on-site. Connectivity is very good.
AT&T, Verizon, and T-Moble all get reception on the property for personal cell phone use.

Meet the Owner(s)

About Us: Denise and John, along with our two daughters, Abigail and Elaina, welcome you to our home on Lake Tekini in the Okara Lakes. We have been welcoming guests to our home for 9 years and enjoy hearing about the new memories you have made while staying here in the ADK.

Why we think you will enjoy staying in Okara Lakes: Lake Tekini is a clean, well-maintained, non-motorized lake. It is the perfect spot for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, or fishing. The girls enjoy waking up in the morning and running out the back door, across the yard, and literally jumping into the lake, and we're sure you will too. In the fall, the foliage sets a perfect backdrop for a lazy stroll or a vigorous hike, both of which are easily accessible from the property. The Okara Lakes are a short, 5 minute drive from the town of Old Forge.

Why our property is special: It is a perfect adirondack retreat. We personally visit our property often, and have weekly visits from our caretaker, cleaners, and grounds crew, all of whom take pride in the maintenance of our home for our guests. It is the perfect size for families who want to spend time together, but who also appreciate space to relax.
