This charming historic home is located in the hamlet of Wanakena, one block from the Oswegatchie River. Built in 1902 and originally owned by John T. Olson who built the first home in Wanakena. Now updated with modern comforts, the home still has many of the original antique furnishings including the icebox that the Olson family stored farm milk in, to sell to the towns people.

The Oswegatchie River flows into Cranberry Lake, the third largest lake of the Adirondacks. There is plenty of hiking trails to choose from. The Moore trail is a two mile trail that starts in Wanakena or for longer hikes, there is the Cranberry Lake 50 Loop. Enjoy the nature and peacefulness of this "forever wild" location.

Sit in an Adirondack chair on the enclosed wrap around porch for morning coffee, to read a book or to enjoy the abundant humming birds that come to the feeder. Walk one block to the quaint village center or to catch a summer concert in the gazebo. Go for a swim or launch the house kayak at the public beach. Walk to the tennis courts, basketball court or playground. Take a self-guided walking tour of Wanakena, courtesy of the Wanakena Historical Association. Enjoy a delicious meal at the local favorite Pine Cone Restaurant overlooking the river. Take advantage of abundant opportunities for hiking, boating, fishing, and exploring, as well as easy day trips to visit the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, the Wild Center in Tupper Lake, or the tourist shops in Lake Placid and the High Peaks Region.

This comfortable cottage will make you feel like you have come home. It has a feel of days gone by that will coax you into relaxation. It has two bedrooms which sleep 4 and one bathroom. There is a queen size air mattress for additional guests. The cottage has a wood pellet stove in the living area, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area, and a morning room.

Meet the Owner(s)

About Us: We are a family of four with two daughters ages 23 and 18. We were introduced to Wanakena a few years ago and immediately fell in love with the timeless feel, history and beauty of the Adirondack State Park. We believe in leaving every site we may visit, be it the forest, lake or river with no trace that we were ever there. We are from Maryland and spend much of our time thinking about our next trip to Wanakena!

Why we think you will enjoy staying in Wanakena: There are several hiking trails within walking distance as well as the public beach for swimming in the fresh water of the Oswegatchie River. You can kayak, bike ride, fish, explore! Rainy days are terrific for board games which we have an ample supply of at the cottage, or visit the nearby Nature Museum or curl up with a good book. We also have high speed internet for your convenience.

Why our property is special: Built in 1902 this cottage is cozy, charming and very well kept, but with the convenience of modern utilities. Named Red Oak Cottage because in the front yard, you will find a Red Oak tree which is not a native tree and very unusual to find in the Adirondacks. We have no idea how it got there!
