Specific Rate Details

Rates vary dependent on time of year, day of week and number of guests. Input dates and number of guests for exact quote.

The busy season of June through October our housekeeper is scheduled for Mondays and Fridays, so all rentals must begin or end on one of those days. Nov-Apr she may have a bit more flexibility, please inquire.

Please Note: there are noise restrictions on this lake in summer, so this is great place for finding peace and quiet, but your group/family must also agree to keep noise to a minimum.

This place is AWESOME in the winter!

Description

Get away from civilization and back to nature in this immaculate European style chalet on very pretty and remote Charley Lake. The cabin has soaring celings and is all windows so you can enjoy the beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains from the inside as well as on hikes and adventures.

<<<<>>>>>

Brand new custom auna that overlooks the lake! Great after a cool dip in the lake or roll in the snow.

This is a great spot if you are looking for a quiet retreat. This is a private community with noise ordinances, and because sound travels easily across the lake, we cannot have outdoor music, yelling, or other disturbances here. Please take this into consideration before booking this spot. In warmer weather everyone on the lake sleeps with their windows open, so relative quiet around the campfire and while out on the boats is a necessity. Of course this means you are assured a peaceful holiday as well! In winter we are the only occupied house on our side of the lake so it's not so much of an issue.

The lake and dock are just 15 feet from the house, great for kids and for swimming. We have a custom bar with stools on the deck, perfect for that first cup of coffee in the morning and winding down with a glass of wine in the afternoon. Loons live on this lake, their eerily beautiful call is an amazing sound to experience, it reverberates and echoes off the surrounding mountains. Distant owl and coyote calls also frequently heard.

The view across the lake is of wooded land and mountains, just a few houses in sight. Property comes with Weber charcoal grill, full chefs kitchen with Viking gas stove and convection oven, dishwasher, good dishes and very high quality pots and pans. Dining by chandelier for 6. High speed internet and a landline provided (no cell service here!). Huge flat screen TV for watching Netflix movies, but no cable. Front lawn has adirondack chairs for drinking in the piece and quiet and the views, more seating found around the fire pit.

Guests have use of an indoor fireplace for those cooler eves, and an outdoor fire pit for stargazing and marshmallow roasting, and of course the new outdoor sauna.

WINTER
This is a great spot for skiers, snowmobilers, cross country skiing and snowshoe enthusiasts. This cabin was built to take advantage of the beautiful winters here. Exceptionally private, we are the only cabin open in winter on our side of the lake.

Snowmobiling - we are right on the snowmobile trail, no need to haul sleds anywhere. Snowmobile rentals nearby or bring your own. Thousands of miles of trails from here to Canada!

Skiing - fabulous, fun, family friendly local Oak Ski Mountain is just 10 minutes away. A unique small town mountain with big ideas, they have sledding and other winter activities for the kids, great food, fun bar and live music too. Gore is 40 minute drive. Lapland Lake is one of the best cross country ski resorts in the east, 30 minute drive, Garnett Hiil is also amazing, about 1 hour drive.
Fishing - this lake is known for it's ice fishing. You'll likely have all the fish in the lake to yourselves in winter.
Snowshoes - we supply 4 sets - take them across the lake or venture out onto the trails and through the woods.
Hiking - we supply a list of fun winter hikes, including waterfalls which are beautiful in winter.

SPRING, SUMMER and FALL
Swim, kayak, canoe, paddle board, read, bbq, hike, stargaze or do nothing but relax! Charley Lake is a spring fed mountain top lake great for swimming, there are no motorboats. You will have a stand up paddle board, kayak, 2 person canoe and lake floats.

Great hiking and waterfalls nearby, we supply a full list of nature hikes, restaurants, museums and things to do. Saratoga and Lake George are one hour drive, Lake Placid is two. Gorgeous drives to many surrounding lakes in this area.

If you are interested in more action, 15 minutes in either direction are towns which have restaurants, bigger lakes, more hiking, free tennis, basketball, beaches and some stunning waterfalls.

MORE ABOUT THIS CABIN
There are 3 bedrooms. Upstairs is an open loft bedroom with queen bed. Downstairs are two bedrooms, each with one double bed, one also has a fun single loft bunk, for a total of 4 beds in house. There is one bathroom (shower only). We recently added a hand crafted outside wood bar to the deck with lap blankets for those cooler days.

WHAT WILL YOU LOVE? The house has amazing views, is quiet, charming and eco friendly, cabin is new and kept in immaculate condition so even the most discerning should be very pleased. Nice privacy (most private in winter) and on a unusually peaceful mountain lake. We supply detailed lists of where to go and what do to in the area, and the house is well stocked with things to make your stay easy and breezy - just bring food and we do ask you to bring your own towels.

What might you NOT Love?
Noise must be kept to a minimum.
The well water has naturally occurring iron (minerals) in it which turns it a slight yellow color. Although perfectly fine to use and drink, it stains our shower and toilet. No washer dryer (or sheets would turn yellow). We provide nice quality linens for the beds, bath mats, hand and kitchen towels (and wash them at the laundromat), but ask guests to please bring their own bath and beach towels, or, for an additional cleaning fee, we will supply bath towels. There is a laundromat down the road a bit.

Also, RECYCLES are a real hassle here, as the town does not pick them up. So, like with camping, guests who choose to stay here must agree to take home what they brought in. Leaving a few is fine (less than one bag in total!) but they must be kept clean and separate from garbage. The housekeeper has agreed to take one bag in her car after each cleaning. More than that and there will be an additional fee.

Max 6 persons (includes children). This is a NO PARTIES, NO SMOKING, NO PETS (no exceptions, sorry!), NO LOUD NOISE and allergen free home.

PLEASE NOTE: We get pretty booked up year round, so in the busy summer season our housekeeper has set aside Monday and Friday for us. Our rentals are M-F, M-M, F-M or F-F. Nov to April we can possibly make an exception, please enquire.
