“Don't hesitate to rent this Camp for your next family vacation. It has everything you will ever need, fully equipped kitchen, spacious bedrooms, two sitting areas and the view from the deck is spectacular. We enjoyed the fire pit & the basket of treats we received as a welcome gift. I can't say enough about this property and how helpful the owners were. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.. The Dolak & Fleischman Family”

“Mini vacation on Columbus weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed this home, it"s property, and the hosts. Beautiful/rustic decor that my wife who usually does not agree with most interior designs, announced this is how she will decorate our camp sometime in the future. Warm and cozy with more than enough room for us 3 adults and 2 children. We have rented vacation homes in various states and received a welcomiing bottle of wine one time. We stayed here for 3 nights and received a goodie basket of various items. This made us feel so welcome and that they really wanted us to enjoy their home, which we did. Great, responsive hosts that we will rent from again. Location is quiet and peaceful, a nice area away from the bustling tourist areas just south. A cup of coffee on the deck with the morning cool breeze, warming fire as the sun went down while the kids explored was what we needed to distress from the busy lives we all lead. Fully equipped house with all sorts of water fun boats to use right at the dock. Thanks for letting us enjoy the beauty of the ADK at your camp. I would recommend the Navigation Cruise to learn the history of this lake. Also, my personal favorite, Red Dog Tavern's wings and pulled pork nachos. Thanks again, beautiful camp. ”
“Hi Rob and Kim, We are glad you and your family enjoyed camp and we hope you will consider us again in the future! Sincerely, The Conlans”

“No need to look any further for your vacation rental - this house has it all! From the kayaks to the incredible views to the well-stocked kitchen, there is nothing missing from this paradise. We took full advantage of all the water toys and enjoyed hiking several of the nearby mountains. The water temperature was perfect for the kids to swim right off the dock. We enjoyed going to many of the local attractions including the Raquette Lake Library, the Wild, and Bald and Black Bear Mountains! We used the fire pit almost every night along with the s'more ingredients from the welcome basket! The hosts are incredibly responsive and helpful - you are in great hands. ”
“Thank you Mary, we are so appreciative of your positive review! We are also thrilled that you were able to enjoy the lake and some of the attractions in the area. We hope to see you all again soon! Sincerely, Dan and Carole”

“Fantastic! We had four generations there ranging in age 2 years to 89 years and everyone had an equally great time. The owners are great to work with and make you feel like their home is your home. The on-site care takers Don and Joyce are super also. The pictures dont do it justice as to how beautiful the home actually is. We definitely hope to stay there again.”

“This was our 2nd year staying here and it never disappoints. The cabin is always clean and has everything you need including a well stocked kitchen and the sleeping arrangements are perfect. We enjoy sitting on the dec to watch sunsets and also view the loon family swimming by. The dock is large enough to n and enjoy the scenery while swimming; no weeds to contend with. It was easy to use our kayaks and also have available a canoe and kayak from camp. There is a wide range of hiking choices; this year we a waterfall and other new trails. The owners are wonderful to work with; the contract is very specific and easy to complete . ”

“From the moment we walked in the house where we were greeted with a great welcome basket of goodies to the beautiful Adirondack furnishings we knew it would be a good weekend. The house was furnished to the nines with everything you would need. We had a wonderful time and the weather couldn't have been more perfect for paddle boat and kayaking. Fishing not so good but enjoyed watching and listening to the loons. ”
“Thank you Jeannette, we are glad you and your family had a great weekend and enjoyed your stay at camp! Sorry to hear the fish didn't cooperate but glad the loons did!”

“This is a gorgeous, well-built, beautifully furnished home. My husband, 10-year old son and I stayed there for one week this summer. Upon arrival there was a welcome basket filled with s'more-making ingredients (marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate and roasting sticks). Thank goodness, because we completely forgot to pick that up at the store on our way there and my son was delighted to see that the owners were able to anticipate his needs without ever having met him. Also there was a box of pancake mix and a bottle of real maple syrup, which my son happily ate every morning for breakfast. The lake was breathtaking and sunsets were incredible. We hiked Bald Mt., Castle Rock, and the Sagamore Trail- great exercise and the views at the top were worth it. The convenience of docking our boat right at the house encouraged last minute evening fishing trips before bed and a great excuse to get another view of the sunset. The kitchen was well-equipped. Cooking full meals was a breeze. Having use of kayaks, paddle boards and canoe gave us all time to explore the lake at sun rise without disturbing our neighbors. This get away graciously satisfied our vacation needs. We wanted to unplug, relax and reconnect as family and that's exactly what we did. Thank you Dan and Carole for a wonderful experience that made us delighted to return again and enthusiastically recommend to anyone in the future.”
“Thank you so much Erin and Ben! We are glad you were all able to enjoy camp, we hope you will visit again! Sincerely, Dan and Carole”

“Camp In Da Wae is a great place to spend time on Raquette Lake. It has everything a family needs. The upstairs area is like a separate suite. The kitchen is large and well equipped. The lake is beautiful and we had fun fishing and kayaking. It was easy to launch our kayaks from the dock. We loved the General Store in the Village; it was a 15 minute walk and it had wonderful baked goods and most necessities. The owners are well prepared for renters and answered all of questions quickly. It was a great experience!”
“Thank you KC and Bill for your review and we hope to see you again in the futures! Sincerely, Dan and Carole”

“This was our third year at this beautiful house. We have been coming up to the Adirondacks for the past 12 years and this is our favorite place to stay. The accommodations are beautiful - the views are breathtaking and by far our favorite family vacation spot. We have already booked for next year. The owners are such nice and genuine people. As long as they will allow us to rent from them - we will continue to come back. Words and pictures cannot describe this amazing camp. Our entire family is counting down the days till we come back next year!!! ”

“Absolutely great lake front cabin on Raquette Lake. My family and I have been vacationing on the lake for over 30 years, and this is easily the best place we have stayed. It's in a great location, right off of Route 28 and very close to the town. The house is very spacious and has everything you could need. We made great use of the kayaks, paddle boat and canoe. Dan was a pleasure to deal with, I can highly recommend to any prospective renter!”
“Thanks Bill! We appreciate you positive feedback and are so glad you and your family enjoyed yours stay on Raquette Lake. It was great having you and your family stay at camp and hope that you will come back again. Sincerely, Dan, Carole and family”

“The cabin was as beautiful inside as was the view outside. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed and the furniture/beds were comfortable. The wifi was very nice to have since we streamed Netflix in the evenings (no tv service). The place was clean and had nice blankets and comforters/quilts (bring your own sheets). We even had use of the washer/dryer in the lower level bathroom. It was very easy to get in when we got there and the owners called a couple times to make sure everything was satisfactory. One of the drawbacks was having to pack all the extras that were not included - hand soap, dish soap, toilet paper... We stayed in February for a snowmobiling trip and because of the snow parking was a little hectic, the neighbor had some concerns but ended up letting us park a truck and trailer near her place. Would consider renting again.”
“Thanks for taking the time for providing a review Laura. We are glad you enjoyed camp and hope to have you back as guests again.”

“What a beautiful place to stay! The amenities were second to none, and this place truly felt like home to us. The owners are wonderful, and have put a great deal of effort into making this a slice of heaven. We are very much looking forward to a return. Raquette Lake is spectacular, and we really enjoyed the boat tour by Raquette Lake Navigation, and the seaplane ride with Paynes. We also rented a pontoon from Burke's Marine for a couple days, allowing us to tour the whole lake. Loved this wonderful, relaxing vacation! ”
“Thank you Kari and Jim, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were able to explore the entire Lake!”

“Our stay at this beautiful camp was pretty much idyllic. Much time was spent swimming/reading/basking on or around the dock, which is designed to ride up and down with the gentle movement of the lake water. Canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boating were available whenever the mood struck. Facing north-northwest, the spacious camp deck offers sun throughout the day and sunsets over tiny Raquette Lake Village to the left. The village is near enough to walk to or kayak to in minutes. The general store provided various necessities as well as a morning paper and fresh, warm loaves of bread. There's high-def TV and broadband internet which worked fine. Whoever invented LadderBall had a good idea. The camp owners are caring and gracious and were available to answer questions before, during and after the stay. Our party -- including an 88-year-old and two large kids -- had a wonderful, quiet, great time. Highly recommended. ”
“Thanks Tom and family for your kind words and for the great photos! We are happy that you all enjoyed Camp as much as we do.”

“From the first phone call in December to express an interest in renting the camp, to the last email this August about returning the security deposit, my experience with this camp and the owner has been nothing but excellent. My questions were answered promptly and the owner greeted us upon arrival to show us around and introduce us to the surroundings. The building itself was very well laid out , it was spotless and completely equipped with everything we could possibly need, including an electric beater which I used to make my niece a birthday cake. A bonus was the use of the paddleboat which was very popular with my grandchildren and they also liked the outdoor games, especially ladder ball. The deck was a great spot for relaxing, reading, and taking family photos. The parking was sometimes a challenge, but all worked out well due to the kindness of some neighbors who were very gracious to allow our boat trailer to be parked for a week near their residence. All in all, my family enjoyed our week in the camp and we have a lot of Raquette Lake summer memories to share. We would heartily recommend the renting of this camp to anyone who wants to enjoy some time in a beautiful camp on a beautiful lake. You couldn't find a better place!! ”

“Great place. The main floor with the open floor plan from the kitchen, dining area, to the living room is very nice. The outside deck is huge and a great place to hang out. Great views of the lake and mountains from the floating dock. The full bathrooms on each floor was very helpful while we had other relatives staying with us. Also they are very spacious and modern. There are camps-houses that are neighboring to this wonderful place. So parking gets tight with multiply cars. Overall it was the best location we have found in the last 5 years for our Family reunions. We have stayed in Alex. Bay, Inlet, Speculator,etc. There was plenty of room for everyone to feel very comfortable in their own space. We would definitely rent in the future. Thank You Dan and Carole for a wonderful week of vacation. Also I would like to give a shutout to the weatherman for having a week of sunshine.(July 25,2015-Aug. 1,2015) Mike L. and Extented Family(please excuse any typos)”

“What a lovely home on the lake. The house was spotless and spacious and the view was amazing. It is in a great location - a short walk to town and centrally located to many of the area attractions. They had bikes, and a paddle boat and a canoe/kayak, games, etc. The rental was arranged by another person in our group, and she said the owner was super nice to work with, and he even called during the week to be sure everything was going well. The caretakers of the property - who live down the road - were warm and welcoming. What a great week in this amazing lake house.”

Loved the Adirondack decor and atmosphere. The Conlan family met us upon arrival and walked us thru the house and made us feel comfortable right away. Both families had a great time and can't wait to go back again. ”
