Cozy little cottage - we call it the Hummingbird! All knotty pine walls and ceiling - a nice little kitchen with gas stove/oven. Also has a little drip coffee maker, cable tv, little dining table up against a picture window overlooking the deck and out to beautiful Indian Lake - a 12 mile long gem, mostly wilderness shoreline, dotted with islands with campsites and public areas for picnicking and swimming. The Lake Store, our general store, is a short walk away for grocery items, ice cream and newspapers. Step back in time and enjoy a nice little vacation spot in the tiny hamlet of Sabael in one of the last wilderness areas in NYState.

The cabin was everything you'd want in a cabin on a lake. Small, quiet, clean, a grill. A great porch with a view of the lake to eat breakfast and dinner on. Was a great LDW weekend.

My boyfriend and I stayed in cottage #2 for a weekend get away and the Burkes made the weekend fantastic! They were able to accommodate our late check in, and the next morning they were in the office eager to help us with anything we needed. They were also very helpful with finding trails to hike, and things to do around the lake. Thank you so much for your hospitality! 10/10 Would recommend

Our stay at cabin #2 was wonderful. The cabin was clean and comfortable- the porch and it's view are the best! Bruce was very helpful with hike suggestions. We enjoyed the canoe and kayaks as well as the sandy shore and swimming area. It is such a beautiful setting, and the Burkes were nice hosts.

This is the perfect getaway destination! We felt so welcomed. The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. The view and surroundings were perfect. I loved the lake. We enjoyed using the kayaks and canoes. The hosts are wonderful nice people. A home away from home. Overall, an amazing experience. We can't wait to return!

Staying with Bruce and Rose was great. They were very helpful and kind every time we saw them. Their place is in an unbelievable location and the use of the dock, canoes and kayaks was great. It gave us the opportunity to explore one of the best lakes in the Adirondacks! The cabin we stayed in, while not anything grand, had everything we needed and made for a perfect long weekend away.

Rose and Bruce were perfect hosts. We arrived later in the evening and the cabin was ready for our arrival. The next morning Bruce shared a few maps, recommending fantastic hiking and kayaking routes for us. It's a beautiful property, with lake access and good private seating areas. My only warming is that the bed is a little uncomfortable in Cabin #2.

Hello: Thank you for the very nice review. We're very glad you had a good stay. We ordered a new bed this past spring, but when it arrived it was the same thickness so we sent it back. We were told a six inch would not allow the sofa bed to close so are in a quandry about what to order. Sorry, we will keep trying to get a good sleeping mattress! The Burkes on Indian Lake

We had a really great stay at Burke's Cottages for the long 4th of July weekend for our anniversary. We were in cabin #2 which was perfect for the two of us and had all the Adirondack charm. Really nice large front porch with a view of the lake. The property itself was very well kept and the various cabins were spaced out nicely from each other for privacy. Rose and Bruce were very hospitable and had great recommendations for where to hike. They also had a few kayaks and canoes for the guests to use. Indian Lake is beautiful and has woods all along the opposite shore so it is especially scenic. I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to hopefully going back again some time next year.

My husband and I were born on Long Island, NY. and vacationed in the Adirondacks since we were young. Rose is retired now and Bruce & I are now in the hospitality field - renting vacation rental cottages on Indian Lake in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. Bruce loves to garden and the property is loaded with lovely perennial gardens as well as ancient, towering pines. Rose loves to cook, bake and read mysteries and Westerns (love Louis LaMour). We both enjoy the peace and serenity of this wilderness area and love to share all that we know with our guests... the many and varied activities they might enjoy while here...swimming, hiking, boating, movie theater, golfing, fine restaurants, our local general store - even downhill skiing, ice skating, snow mobiling - the list goes on and on...Come....relax....enjoy!
