Prospect Point Cottages has become my family's annual summer vacation destination. Located in the heart of the Adirondacks on a pristine lake, PPC truly is our little slice of heaven on earth. Whether you like to go on adventures hiking, canoeing, fishing, rafting or more, or if you'd just like to kick back on a relatively secluded beach, the location is fantastic.
The cottages are wonderful. All have fully stocked kitchens and are clean and are in the style of what a nice cabin on the lake should be: exposed wood, nice windows, etc. The decor inside really makes them stand out. Authentic works of art in birch-bark frames, stained glass windows in some of the cabins. Wall sconces, fireplaces and more complete the serene setting. Plus: the linens are always clean.
The service is impeccable. We truly feel like members of the family when we're there. From the beautiful flower and herb gardens, the to Ice Cream Social, Talent show, Friday Tea and more, the staff take great pride in making your stay truly magical.
PPC has a few boats they allow guests to use; canoes, kayaks, rowboats, etc. You can also choose to rent motorboats or canoes from the 2 rental places on the lake. Plan on cooking or grilling your own food as there are no restaurants nearby. But since each cottage has their own grill and firepit, we ate out only 2 meals in our recent 2-week stay!
There is also a main room called "The Prospect Room" where many retreat to to watch a movie on a rainy day, read a book, or gather in the evenings for games and good company.
We normally try not to tell too many people about PPC... If too many people find out, we'd never be able to book a stay in the winter (which we hope to do some day)!
