Wonderful week on the lake!
Our week at Adirondack Lakefront Retreat was wonderful! The property was exactly as described. We had five families together for a biannual trip and the long house gathering room was perfect for meals and gatherings. Plenty of chairs available and the dock allowed us to bring boats for tubing and fishing. One of our guests is in a wheelchair and he was able to access most of the property with his chair. Lots of level ground. A/C in each bedroom was appreciated during the hot week! We had a question on the first day and Mary responded to our text within minutes. Definitely a property I would return to!

We called it the Great Sacandaga Family Retreat
Families take vacations for a number of reasons: some to get away, some for total relaxation, some to see different places, others to reconnect with family. Our time at the Adirondack Lakefront Retreat was for all of the above and more and we were not disappointed. A certain amount of planning was done before we even left: arranging the rooms, which family would do a dinner on a given night, where we would spend time if there was inclement weather, etc. We planned where we would go to Church on Sunday, etc. Most of our planning was really not needed. This retreat on my favorite lake took much of it away. We just arrived set up shop and the kids were off in the boats with all of the safety preservers provided. Dinner the first night was simple: pizza. After that each night had a theme; for example Tuesday was Taco Tuesday with special table cloths, hats, and other special touches. The kids loved it. The game room was off limits except on rainy days and that was perfect. Rarely was a child seen with a cell phone, the bane of modern society. I did call Mary about a small situation and she was there almost immediately with a cure. She was the perfect hostess for a vacation such as this. The small touches that she supplied were also gratifying, such as board games, the time-our table, the toys for beach and sandbox, a grill for each cottage, radios and wi-fi which was only used for my son-in-laws homework, and checking out various places that could be visited. My favorite room was the main dining room which easily fit everyone for family dinners. Other meal were basically impromptu, which was fine. All in all my family all agreed that we would like to do this again, perhaps not next year but certainly in 2 or 3 years. They were unanimous in singing the praise of our Adirondack Lakefront Retreat.

Lovely place for a large group
Wonderful piece of property right on the water which was fantastic for a very hot week! Great place for children! Mary was super nice and helpful. We are looking forward to returning next summer!

A great family retreat
My extended family of 28 gathered for the sixth year in a row at the Adirondack Lakefront Retreat and once again had a fantastic time. Plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing: paddling kayaks on the lake, building sandcastles on the beach, playing pool in the game room, or reading a book in a shady corner. And enough room for all of us to gather for dinner at the end of each fun-filled day. The retreat has gotten even better with Mary as the new owner. The property is immaculate when we arrive, upgrades appear every year, and if an issue does arise, Mary responds immediately. We look forward to our return!

Great place for family to get together!!!
We had such a great time at the lake. This little gem of a get-a-way is just perfect for families to spend some quality time together. Between the kayaks, canoes, games, yard and well everything else, we could not have asked for anything more. Looking forward to coming back next year. You will not be disappointed with your stay here!!!

Great spot for a family reunion!
This was our fourth and best year at the Retreat, thanks to a new owner who's enthusiasm resulted in great communication, a clean and tidy property, and a bunch of improvements. The addition of kayaks, a canoe, and a paddleboat was a huge plus. There is plenty of space for all 26 of us to spread out. The game room is always a big hit with the teens, and the large sun porch allows us to all get together for dinner every night. The fire pit is perfect for making s'mores or late night stargazing. And sunrise on the the lake is not to be beat. We're look forward to next year!

Exceeded expectations!
Brought nearly an entire boy's soccer team to the location for a weekend tournament...had an absolute blast! The property was clean and well kept, the view and the lake both perfect. Mary (the owner) was communicative and responsive...no complaints, and we can't wait to come back!
