September and October offer some of the best days to enjoy the Adirondacks. Warm waters, quiet lake, empty trails and tranquility. Weekends available;9-29, 10-7.

This Friends Lake camp is typical of the early Adirondack lakefront log cabins, with all the conveniences of modern living. This secluded property puts you 33 feet from the shore of the quiet and private Friends Lake. Loons, osprey and occasional eagles can be seen fishing in this spring fed Lake. A fully screened gazebo allows you to read, listen to music, the game and enjoy the water from the shoreline. The deck gives you a bird's eye view of the water with more privacy for sunning and reading. This cabin is nestled in the tall pines on a hillside facing East for morning sun. The cabin is best for adults and older children because of the terrain (steps from Carport to cabin and cabin to dock) and swimming is primarily from the dock. The use of a aluminum rowboat is included. It is only a short row out in front of the cabin to a favorite fishing spot ,"the hidden island". Friends Lake has no marina or public access keeping the Lake quiet. Please note, there is no place for guests to trailer or launch a boat, if you have a cartop craft please bring it to the Loon Lake (Town of Chester) boat launch (Rte. 8) for proper cleaning before using. We do not want to introduce invasive species, like Eurasian milfoil or zebra mussels.
The camp has 3 bedrooms with full and queen beds, downstairs . There is a loft with limited headroom and ladder access to the full and twin beds. There is one remodeled full bath with tub and shower, toilet, sink on the main floor. The kitchen comes equipped with all new appliances (refrigerator, electric stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and drip coffee maker). There is a washing machine and dryer in the basement. Gas grill, Cable TV, high speed internet and wireless, good cell service for your convenience. There are board games and cards for real time, up close and personal social networking. A fire pit by the gazebo should be safely used with locally purchased wood. We are on a private dirt road about 1 mile from Friends Lake Road, enabling quiet walks or jogs.

Meet the Owner(s)

About Us: My sisters and I spent our summer vacations and weekends at camp in the sixties and seventies. On the lake, in the woods, hiking and learning about the Adirondacks. It is a special place, where you will find it easy to unwind, disconnect and relax. Whether you like photography, to fish, hike, bird watch, read or lose your stream of consciousness in the waters of Friends Lake you will find yourself relaxed and rejuvenated.

Why we think you will enjoy staying in Friends Lake: If rest and relaxation aren't for you and playing on the waters of Friends Lake are not either it is only a short drive to Lake George Village, Outlets shops, antique shops, many fine eateries, movies, surrounding hikes and the High Peaks (60 minutes drive). Adirondack museum in Blue Mountain Lake (45 minutes away) is well worth the price of admission and drive.

Why our property is special: This quaint and comfortable camp is adorable and you'll remember your time at Friends Lake the rest of your lives, as being a golden moment.
