It was my first time here but I will be back! The cottages and grounds were impeccably clean, the staff was super friendly and accommodating! Tip: although your cabin sleeps 6 people, there aren't enough plates for all and there are no pans so bring your own.

There's way too many guests for the narrow strip of beach so we never had chairs & barely had sand. Inside our cabin the mattresses were terrible and the other furniture had been worn out. These owners need to reinvest in this cash cow. We won't be going back.

We stay here a couple of times a year and we absolutely love it, great views, great beach, great staff and plenty of recreation for the entire family, a must if you have family. Horseback riding across the street and only a 10 min drive to village.

Our tight knit circle of girlfriends get away one weekend a year together. We have enlarged over the years and enjoy the spaciousness, cleanliness, hospitality, and grounds of the Depe Dene! We enjoy seeing the same families every year as well. Can't wait until The next one!!!

We drove around looking for another place to stay and doing that the weekend of July 4th was not easy. We found Depe Dene by just driving by and decided... More

We stayed at Depe Dene during this recent labor day weekend and found their facilities to be excellent. We were a group of 4 and rented a cottage in the family area which was quieter than the other areas. There were other options for younger couples and families with kids close to the Lake and some play grounds & a... More

I love the view of the lake from this place. There are free canoes and paddle boats you can take out on the lake. My only complain is that the price is a little steep for the rooms but the view is amazing!

This was our second time visiting Depe Dene Resort among the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. There were nine of us so we rented one of the bigger townhouses. Plenty of space with two full bathrooms, which was great. It's knotty pine at it's best. The place was clean and decent. The staff is so nice and really go out of their... More

I had left a deposit for a week stay and was told I could get my money back if I canceled 60 days before my stay. Not the case! They first suggested I never canceled within that time frame. I did! Then they said even if i did, I would only get my money if I "specifically" requested a refund.... More
