Our three generations shared the roomy 4 bedroom cottage #12. It had everything you could want except for a dishwasher. The property is beautiful and well-equipped. Canoes and kayaks are included as well as a nightly campfire, small beach area and awesome sunsets. It's an easy walk to town for restaurants and stores and walking distance to two hiking trails....

My family and I (8 total) just completed our second family fishing long weekend at Stiefvater's. We first stayed back in August 2011 and the improvements that have been made since then both inside and out have been wonderful. The beds are comfortable, the property is well cared for, all the applicances were in excellent working order, and the sunsets... More

This was our first time staying at Stiefvater's and our entire family (all 16 of us) immensely enjoyed our time. There was something for everyone from our 2 year old niece, 19 and 24 year old cousins, our selves, and my parents (Grandma and Grandpa). We stayed in the cottage 12 which is the log cabin home and we were... More

After reading a negative review about Stiefvater's, I had to write about our wonderful family get together that we had last summer. I contacted Dan and Carolyn Stacks, the new owners, and they said that Rod is no longer the manager there for the upcoming season. So rest assured that your family will once again experience the awesome hospitality, friendly... More

My husband and I have been bringing our two boys to Stiefvater's every father's day weekend since 1997. We have wonderful memories and photos in our albums that not only make us smile but in a sense the boys grew up while having fun on the beach from year to year. It is the perfect place to get away and... More

My family has been coming to Stiefvater's in July for over 10 years and we have thoroughly enjoyed each of our stays. The rustic cabins have every necessary amenity while the beach, playground, and included access to boats give us lots to do outside. The cottages are sited on/near the lake but just off the main road, a short walk... More

Our stay at Stiefvater's was wonderful. Its a very cozy, comfortable, peaceful, fun place to stay for the week: Stiefvater's has a very nice sandy beach and swimming area facing the afternoon sun. We've enjoyed the kayaks and paddle-boats (no extra charge), horse shoes, and games. And there are also nice spots to read, on the porch, under the trees... More

We have been going to Stiefvaters for years and enjoyed everything about it, from the comfortable cabins, location to attractions and probably the best sunsets in the Adirondacks.The previous owner scott made us feel as if the property was our own and was quite welcoming. We stayed at Stiefvaters during Memorial Day weekend of 2010 and the new owners of... More

We have been coming to Stiefvater's for about 5 years and always with extended family. What a wonderful time we have had! The accomodations were clean and ample, and all of the children had the opportunity to spend lots of time at the beach swimming, playing in the sand, and using the canoes & paddle boats. We have rented 4... More

I was there for 2 nights with my mother, sister, wife and small daughter. Pleasantly equipped cottage, Rustic environment, which is what you expect. Cottages of all sizes. Weather was turning cold, and our place was nicely warmed by the stove. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. Close to the beautiful lake. Convenient to town of Inlet, several good restaurants.
