Other Attractions & Activities

•Quiet retreat, with peaceful lake, south facing beach and dock with panoramic views of the Western High Peaks.

•Located at the western edge of the ADK High Peaks and directly connected to some of the best canoeing in the Northeast.

•A short drive to the towns of Saranac Lake and Lake Placid yet off the beaten path and away from noisy crowds.

•Easy drive to major trailheads for great hiking in the High Peaks.

•Canoe directly from our beach to pristine Pine Pond and to 25 miles of rivers and lakes in the Saranac Chain of Lakes.

•Eagles, loons, osprey, great blue heron, fox and deer are commonly seen.

•The 1.1 mile private access is itself an interesting walk; it leads past flowery meadows and wild spruce/tamarack forests, across an open marsh with views of the High Peaks (reminiscent of the Big Sky country of Montana) and finally to the mature forest of 100 year old white pines and mixed deciduous woods where Oseetah Lake Loft is nestled.

•Great bass and pike fishing

•The 1.7 acre property has a south facing sandy beach (ideal for young children) and woodland paths leading to “Sunset Island”, perfect for a deeper swim and/or watching sunsets.
