Rustic waterfront 3-4 bedroom home sleeps up to 8, on tranquil 14 acre motor-free pond in town of Long Lake. 2nd floor master bedroom suite & sitting area. Nearby hiking trails; access to Lake Eaton by short walk or drive; about a mile walk or drive to Long Lake's amazing public waterfront; one mile to village center. Easy access for persons with limited mobility. TV for DVDs, VCR (no cable). Verizon 4G and landline US phone service. Internet via your cell phone or free WiFi at town library.

The space
Ample parking; enough room for boat and trailer (for use in nearby lakes -- no motorboats in the pond).

Swim, kayak or canoe in the pond (bring your own kayak/canoe). See the end of this section for details on swimming in the pond.

Fire pit down by pond.

Books, puzzles, and games in the den. The living room has DVDs for use with the TV.

There is a basic drip coffee maker. It is not a Keurig (several people have asked). While we try to have filters there, I cannot guarantee they will be there, so you may want to bring your own. You will need to bring your own coffee.

There is a basic propane grill on the deck. I ask our caretaker to try to keep the propane tank filled, and he tries to do so, but I cannot guarantee beyond doubt that it will be filled.

Swimming in the pond (at your own risk of course) is nice. Considerations:
- the pond water is clear and beautiful
- the entrance from the shore is muddy (the water itself is clear, but the bottom at the shore is muddy)
- there is a wooden walk that stretches from the shore out into the pond about 20 feet (distance is a guess) to a small platform perpendicular to the walk
- a big rock abuts the platform on the platform's far side from the shore
- you can see these things in one of the pictures
- there is a wooden ladder near where the walk meets the platform that you can use to get into the water (thus avoiding mud); I'm guessing the water is waist-deep at that point
- or you can jump off the rock
- (or enter the pond from the shore if you don't mind the mud or have water shoes/sandals)

Guest access
Guests have access to the full home and property, save for one closet and the outdoor shed. Full access to waterfront and pond.

Other things to note
This is the Adirondacks, so it is important to expect a rustic place. Our house has lodge-like furnishings and finish.

The house does not have air conditioning. We have been very comfortable with breezes and cross ventilation. Window fans are available at the house. People who strongly prefer air conditioning may not be happy with this arrangement.

In the Adirondacks in late summer and fall as it gets cool (or cold) outside mice may get into the house - not just our house, but any lodge-type house in a woodsy setting. We are very assiduous about looking for this and setting traps. We do our best, but if you want to be sure that this will not happen, you probably will prefer a different place.

One early comment said that there were no queen beds, only full beds. I asked our caretaker to measure the beds, and the two beds listed as queens are both 60" x 80", which is the standard queen size. So there may have been some sort of miscommunication, but those two beds are indeed queens.

Normally, we leave sheets and blankets out so that guests can make their own beds, allowing guests to choose which bedrooms to use. If you would like the beds already made when you arrive, please let us know 3 days in advance which bedrooms you will be using.

Portable dishwasher connects by hose to the kitchen sink faucet. Instructions are attached to the DW. One guest said that the connection between the DW hose and the sink faucet leaked for him and that he instead washed dishes by hand. We will look into this but I don't know yet what the outcome will be. I have used it successfully in the past but it may be a bit finicky. Best to assume, until I update this note, that the DW may have to be fiddled with. I'll update once I know more.

A recent guest said the living room couch had a musty smell. We arranged a thorough cleaning right after that. I expect to replace it relatively soon, and will post a note as soon as replaced.

Location

Long Lake, New York, United States

The house is on a dirt road and is quite private. It is separated from neighbors on either side by more than 250 feet of thick woods - you will not see other people from the property nor will you be seen. There is occasional road noise from lightly traveled Route 30, which is on the other side of the dirt road, separated from the house by 215+ feet of distance and by a few rows of trees. One guest remarked that he heard a lot of truck brakes from the road, but also said that it was not a concern to him. Another guest remarked that she heard road noise, but said that it was consistent with this description.
