Settle in, unpack, then walk 2 minutes down the quiet road to the local pub for dinner - or drive into town. Our cabin provides comfort, privacy and a convenient base for exploring nearby Saranac Lake, Lake Placid and the surrounding area. A historic ice house dating back to the early 1900s, the cabin has been renovated to feature a cozy loft, bathroom and comfortable indoor and outdoor sitting areas. We've put more photos on Instagram @adkcabin and on Faceb00k at /adkcabin.
This cabin was built in the early 1900s as an ice house for the farm and local neighborhood before refrigeration arrived the Adirondacks. It has since been renovated with a loft area and bathroom. We have continued to update the space with free wireless internet, a brand new mattress, smartphone charging station and a small kitchenette equipped with a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and electric kettle. A comfortable full-size bed is located in the loft area. The main sitting area could also accommodate extra overnight guests who bring their own sleeping bags (we provide a cot). There are chairs and a table both indoors and outdoors for eating, reading, writing or working. A lovely private porch overlooks the property and Ricketson Pond. A hammock is set up by the pond, which offers opportunities for wildlife viewing and paddling. There is a pub within walking distance that serves homestyle cooking, locally-sourced burgers and a good selection of NY craft beer. We have 24 sweet laying hens out in the barn yard if you'd like to purchase fresh eggs before you leave! This private and comfortable Adirondack cabin is the perfect base for exploring the culture of Saranac Lake and surrounding areas.
The cabin is attached to our farmhouse by a covered walkway and has its own private entrance. There is parking available on site. Local guidebooks can be made available upon request.

Ezra grew up in Saranac Lake, and after 15 years of schooling, travel, and work in other places, Ezra and Audrey moved back to the area to raise a family and live the Adirondack dream! We love our old farm house and homestead and appreciate its proximity to town and culture, wilderness areas, and all kinds of outdoor activities. Depending on the time of year, we enjoy gardening, caring for livestock, maple sugaring, canoeing, hiking, and skiing. We are deeply grateful to be living in this special spot in the world and are eager to share it with visitors.
