“Exceeded or Expectations!”

The Blue House was the perfect place for our family gathering. We found the rental on VRBO and the listing description was 100% accurate. The house is modern, comfortable, well maintained and very clean. It is located on a private lake in the Adirondack Mountains with lakefront access. We traveled with another family and we had children from age 4 to 11. The location was away from any busy roads and very relaxing. The beach area was perfect for the kids since the water was shallow until you walked out 30 feet or more. Garnet Lake was amazing for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and observing wildlife. We couldn’t have asked for more and will be planning our return next year soon!

Liked best: The best part about the house is that it is on the shore of Garnet Lake, a great place for canoeing, fishing, skiing and other water-sports.

“A piece of adirondack heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We were blown away by the house and location. The house was much larger than we had imagined, well kept with everything we could need. The upstairs loft bedroom is simply enormous and beautifully done in knotty pine. Kitchen is up to date and very well equipped. There is a very good gas grill available which we made good use of.

The owner met us when we arrived and reviewed the details and then left us to enjoy the location. A road goes through the property but it doesn't matter - it is a dead end so very little traffic.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone who enjoys lake living and getting away from all noise of civilization. The far end of the lake is state reserve so it is possible to be away from any sign of human habitation. House has landline and wireless which worked well since there is no cell coverage here at all.

We're are already missing ending each day with the call of the loons in the twilight. Delightful!
