Lovely log home with private access to Loon Lake for swimming, fishing and all water activities. Lake water is clear and clean. Nice campfire area right on the the shore. Beautiful view of the loons diving and calling each other. Quick access to Rt 86 north to Lake Placid area.
We came as a couple celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary but the home has plenty of room for an large or extended family comfortably. Plenty of activites to do within a days driving distance in all directions.

This home was the perfect place for two families to spend a week. The rooms are spacious and the house is so well placed on the lake. There are boats, games, a well stocked kitchen, and a deck to barbecue.

We were a family of 6 looking for a winter vacation home. It was beautiful inside as well as outside. The lake was frozen and we loved walking around on the lake. It was minutes to all our activities. Skiing at Gore Mountain, Snow shoeing at the Natural Stone and Caves in Pottersvile, Sledding on Dynamite Hill, visiting Lake George, and snow tubing at West Mountain . After days of winter fun it was great to come home to a beautiful comfortable home! Everyone had their own room and we enjoyed the ping pong table and many games! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

The house was perfect! Clean - well stocked. Location private and beautiful view. I would come back in a heartbeat!
Diane T. Sep 2021
Enjoyed our stay, weather was perfect, all the facilities and more were there. There was 5 adults and 1 children and we had plenty of room, beds and bathrooms. Although, we had some days that were very humid, was wishing there was air conditioning, we dealt with it with the fans that were provided.
The convenience of having a sandy beach was absolutely wonderful for our 4 year old, he was in the water everyday. Loved the paddle boat and the kayaks.

This is our second year at this house on Loon Lake. Great setting, great location. Plenty of room for our family of nine. This year I thought some things needed updating. The outdoor chairs were mostly broken (caretaker noticed and replaced some),
the sliding screens were off tracks and had lots of rips (we used tape to fix!). The fluorescent lights over the ping pong table were worked but low light level. We couldn't see to play at night!
The house was not really clean when we arrived. Lots of areas not even swept...especially the side by the dining room.
We had a great time and hope some of these annoying problems are fixed for next year if we come family is pretty easy!

Our family of 10 plus a baby, loved this house. There was ample room for all of us. The weather during our week stay was very warm...we were thankful for all the fans in the house. Made use of the canoe and kayak and loved the floating dock. The family swam and fished...the lake was very clean. Was nice to have a yard and liked the trees that gave us privacy from the neighbors. Great location...close to Lake George and not far from Lake Placid. We had a wonderful vacation...thank you!!

We arrived to dirty towels in the master bath. A lawn service showed up in the middle of the day unannounced. Some cracked and broken chairs at beach. The cleaning crew arrived at 9:40am on check out day. The checkout is early enough at 10am. They parked three cars in our spot as we were at the dump (another inconvenience, I would revisit provided trash service). We paid half for same house two years ago. On the Pro side- the house is beautiful with lovely views, plenty of room, a very well stocked kitchen with plenty of boats to use. The downstairs bedrooms are a little musty smelling, but not awful, and the kids enjoyed ping pong. We had beautiful weather and were on the lake everyday. The loons came to visit daily and had two babies in tow and an eagle flew by daily to fish. I believe the nest was located across from us.

This is a beautiful house, right on the water. With the floating dock and one you can walk out over the water, it is ideal for boating or swimming. This is a well-equipped house with plenty of room. With the new box springs and other little upgrades, it is an ideal place to vacation!

House full of light. True to pictures. Amazing view in the lake.
Patricia C. Feb 2021
stayed for feb break week and skied at gore mountain, just 15 minute drive. enjoyed the woodburning stove and ping pong downstairs, as well as the outdoor firepit where we spent most later afternoons/evenings overlooking the lake. very charming. plenty of room for 2 families including 4 adults and 3 kids.

We had an amazing time at this lovely home. It had everything that we needed for a fantastic weeks stay. Highly recommend- we will be back!
Andrew T. Oct 2020
Our family had a lovely time relaxing at the house. It was well appointed in the kitchen and had everything we needed and then some. The hotel-style toiletries were wonderful, as well as the provided towels and linens. Our kids loved jumping in the crystal clear lake, even in October, and swimming to the shallow-water floating dock. The deck and yard are spacious and perfect for running around, playing football, grilling, relaxing, and having a bonfire with the most beautiful view. The home is easy access to surrounding towns, and we'd love to come back!
Samera S. Sep 2020
The house was welcoming, the view was spectacular! Would book it again in a heartbeat!
Catherine M. Aug 2020
We were 8 adults, 3 children and an infant. Plenty of room for dining indoors, and rainy day "stay in". Very clean with mostly everything in working order. We would definitely come back.

We're stayed in the Adirondacks for many years...this is our first stay at this house on Loon Lake. Lots of room for my family. Lower level great for my 4 Grandkids. Good connectivity (Wi Fi and cable). Great views of the lake. Good kayak and canoe. The rowboat needs to be removed. Kitchen OK. Great porch for reading. Yard big and well maintained. Lake sometimes a little dirty with leaves, twigs but nice swimming anyway. All in all a really good 2 weeks. Probably will be back.
Lots of good hiking in the area. Not high peaks but shorter trips with good views.
Michael O. Jul 2020
Clean, clean, clean! Plenty of room for everyone. All the comforts of home
Mike O. Jul 2020
Great house that more than adequately housed the 12 of us. We could all gather or scatter. And the location was great-Plenty to do paddle boat, canoe, kayaks, rowboat, and yard games at the cabin. Loon Lake has a Marina to rent a motor boat and Lake George is close by for exploring, Chestertown, is a quaint village with a variety of options for eating out. And the hiking in the area is great.

Open space kitchen-family room
Nice deck and beach setting
Barbara W. Aug 2019
The private beach and float, great open plan with plenty of seating. Well stocked kitchen. Lake view from sliding glass doors and huge lakefront deck, kayaks, canoe and rowboat as well as paddle boat. Very clean and comfortable bedrooms on the main floor. Great set up for extended family from toddlers to grandparents. Problem with the gas grill was addressed immediately and was replaced with a beautiful brand new grill thanks to the attention and concern of project manager, Lin.
Dennis K. Jun 2019
We loved our stay at Moonbeams and Fireflies. The cabin was beautiful, the beach was terrific, and to be able to use the kayaks, canoe, paddleboat and rowboat was awesome. We caught fish, saw loons and had a great time.
