Lake Algonquin Cottage

Accommodates: 6

Bedrooms: 2

Bathrooms: 1


Enjoy spectacular views of the lake and mountains from this sweet lakefront cottage. Perfect for a romantic getaway for two, or bring the family to join the fun.

A favorite room is the large screened porch, perfect for meals and playing cards late into the evening, The lake and mountain views from this property are unsurpassed. The sight of the fog lifting off the lake in the morning still takes our breath away.

The Cottage has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with double bed and custom bunk beds the kids will love. Sleeps 6 people in a total of 4 beds. There are enough kayaks for 6 people to enjoy a ride around the lake together!

We have indoor wood fireplace, outdoor fire pit, fully equipped kitchen, gas grill, washer/dryer, dock, row boat, four kayaks, Wifi, Netflix and a 47 inch flat screen. No cable TV here though, we come here to get away from the news!

The large lawn is a great spot to hang out, has adirondack chairs, picnic table and a fire pit to roast marshmallows and watch for shooting stars at night.

There are numerous hikes for both beginners and the more athletically inclined in this area, beautiful waterfalls, fishing off our dock and on nearby rivers, free tennis, basketball courts and public beach in town. We supply a complete list of Fun Things to Do.

We provide quality linens and many other necessities to make your stay easy and stress free. We do ask that you bring your own bath and beach towels.

This has been our family home for 60 years, there are updates (like new bathroom and kitchen), but for the most part this remains a camp, albeit a very clean and well maintained one, with all the rustic charm that you might expect in an older home.

Best things about the house? The waterfront location, amazing view, easy access to swimming, kayaking, large waterfront lawn, screened in porch and comfy beds.

Biggest hassle here? RECYCLES! Guests must agree to take home recycles if you bring a lot in, leaving a few is OK but must agree to follow the towns strict recycle rules - they must be kept clean and separate from garbage. We then have to take them to the dump and separate them into bins by hand. We simply cannot handle this task if large amounts are left. So - our general rule here is similar to camping. If you brought it in, you must agree to take it out!

No smoking, no pets (no exceptions, sorry!), no parties or entertaining here please. Sound carries easily across lakes, so we request all guests keep noise level down on our lakefront at all times, but especially after 9PM.

Summer housekeeping is Mon and Fri only, so all arrivals and departures must be on one of those days. Rest of year is a little more flexible.
