4/5 Good

Adorable cabin!
Cute cabin, small inside, but who wants to be inside when you're on a lake! It was a little unfortunate the public beach was so close, and not patrolled when it was supposed to be closed. The cabins are close, with one dock and one lake access spot. We were in the one with the rocky shore. Neighbors who had the dock also had children that liked to make mud pies on the dock, so it was pretty much inaccessible. Some of the adirondack chairs were broken, the railings were not secure, but with a little TLC, this place could be great!

5/5 Excellent

Lake Colby
Great location for walking to Saranac Lake- comfortable accommodations, very easy place to stay and well appointed.

5/5 Excellent

It was a restful time for us.Many places were closed for the season so I would not recommend going in April but we needed to just relax so we were not expecting anything exciting to happen.In the summer you will have a great time on the water.In the winter you can ski and enjoy the Norman Rockwell Christmas card landscape.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy cabin
The cabin was absolutely perfect. We felt a part of our surroundings and we were truly able to take in the beautiful Adirondack spirit. The kitchen was marvelous. We brought our own dinner kits (Hello Fresh) and they had everything we needed to prepare them, just like home, terrific stove. We watched the Mars rover landing on television (perfect smart TV easy to use) one evening and relaxed with the gas stove going (nights dropped down to low single digits) and a puzzle. The cabin is right on Colby Lake and made for lovely morning coffee vistas. It was no trouble in and out of the property with our SUV. The plow came one morning as we had about 6-8 inches of snow in the night. The cabin made for a perfect ski vacation (Titus MT. Malone, NY). We would definitely love to come back.

5/5 Excellent

The perfect, laid-back break we ALL needed!
The cabin was perfect. The location was perfect! We cooked all meals in and found the kitchen to be lacking in nothing! The weather was as expected, cold and snowy but we were warm and cozy in the cabin day and night! This was a surprise for me! I packed layers, scarves, slippers and extra blankets thinking we'd need them! I was wrong! The cabin is well-insulated and the gas fireplace during the day kept us warm! Overall a great stay! We'd love to come back when the weather allows for lake use!
