Taiga Cottage in the Adirondacks

 

Taiga Cottage has much Adirondack charm.  It is located directly on the water, and it is quite private and secluded, but it is  not isolated. It has 2 bedrooms, a fully equipped eat- in- kitchen, a comfortable living room, a screened porch, and it will accommodate four to five persons comfortably. Taiga ia available for rent by the week, from June thru September.

 

The kitchen is equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker,  toaster, pots and pans, dishes, and utensils. Bathroom facilities include hot and cold running water and a shower. Taiga is completely and comfortably furnished. Included are blankets and pillows, but you should provide your own sheets, pillowcases, and towels.

 

 Taiga is located directly on the west shore of Long Lake with a small private beach and a 12 foot dock.  It is situated in a setting among magnificent pine, hemlock, fir, and birch trees. Originally constructed by local craftsmen over 125 years ago as a hunting camp, it retains much of that flavor today with its unspoiled rustic comfort. The living room has a fieldstone fireplace, and the walls are papered with natural birchbark.  There are two porches, one of which is screened. It sleeps four to five comfortably, with a double bed downstairs, and another double bed upstairs. There are also twin beds upstairs.
 
 
The rental rate for the 2016 season is $875 weekly. If you wish to make a reservation, please contact us. There is a security deposit of $200 which is refundable.   Taiga is pet free, and guests are requested to refrain from smoking. Our atmosphere is not conducive to a phone or TV, but there is cellphone service in the area.
 
You may want to bring your canoe or kayak for an early morning or evening paddle in the calm water, or you may just wish to enjoy the lake view while reading a book on the front porch.  You may even hear the call of a loon. Sit on the porch and watch the butterflies and hummingbirds attracted by the flowering  bee balm.
Taiga is the ideal place for a refreshing change from your everyday cares and concerns.  It is a place of stressless leisure where the overscheduled world of deadlines, meetings, mortgages, crowds and traffic jams does not exist.
 
Many of our guests have really enjoyed their vacations here,  and have returned to Taiga a second, third, and even a fourth time.
