“Larkin Point is an exquisite high end rental property in every sense. The house itself is stunning, and for a large property conveys a sense of warmth and coziness no matter the size of your party. The great room is vast, but sectioned perfectly, so cooking and hanging out in the kitchen, reading looking over the lake or just chilling watching tv feel separate but connected. The views are spectacular and provide calmness and relaxation as soon you enter through the front door. Within an hour of arriving all of our family, aged from 14 to 75, felt at home and the stress dissipating. Any thing you may have forgotten is likely to be on hand in the bedrooms and bathrooms which is an additional touch which makes appreciate how much the owner has thought about the comfort of their guests. The main deck overlooking the lake is a perfect place to eat, sit and read a book and have evening cocktails before dinner. The highlight for our family was the properties position on the lake and its unobstructed view. It is a short and easy walk down to the boathouse and firepit areas, with solar lights at night. It is deep enough to jump in off the dock and swim to the water trampoline which kept most of us amused several times a day. The boat rental is an extra touch that saves on the usual hassle and lottery of renting from a local marina. We have rented similar properties for family holidays for many years and Larkin Point stands head and shoulders above anything else. On first glance it seems an expensive proposition, but our family agreed it was well worth it. We will be back!”

“Thank you for sucha thoughtful review. We are thrilled your family had such a wonderful experience! This our family home and as such we have shared all of the luxuries that we would want for our own family. We look forward to having you and your family visit again. Kelly”
“Our extended family had the pleasure of staying at Larkin Point early in August. There were 12 of us, ranging in age from almost 1 year through 66 years. It was the perfect setting to all be together and enjoy each other and beautiful Tupper Lake. We have rented many properties over the years for our family vacations, and this is the most spectacular. The furnishings are beautiful as well as comfortable and the house is immaculate. Every detail has been carefully planned by the owners, such as 3 laundry rooms, plenty of towels, linens, and even a closet of beach towels. The kitchen was great to cook meals for our group and is very well equipped. The sandy beach was great for our young grandchildren to access the water and play in the sand and the teenagers had a great time on the water trampoline. We also rented the pontoon boat which enabled us to enjoy lovely rides on the lake. We climbed Coney mountain as a group, visited the Wild Center, shopped in Sarnac Lake and sampled some of the great food from local eateries in Tupper. Overall, it was a perfect week for our family vacation. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had and eager to make our stay wonderful. We highly recommend this property!”

“We are so happy you all enjoyed Larkin Point! We hope you get to come visit again. Kelly”
“What a wonderful property! We rented Larkin Point the last week of June/ first week of July, and an amazing time was enjoyed by all in our group of 12, spanning age eighteen months to age 82. The home, grounds, view, and setting are every bit as beautiful as all the photos show. The owners have thought of everything to make anyone's vacation special - from the well-equipped kitchen, to the toiletries in the bathroom, to the waterfront and recreational gear. They were also very responsive to any questions we had. We have vacationed in the Adirondacks every summer for a week for over 30 years, and Larkin Point is by far the best place we have ever stayed. It was made for lasting memories.”

“I’m so glad your family had such a special vacation. We hope to see you again at Larkin Point! Kelly”
“This was actually my second stay here - I also stayed in the Fall of 2020. What to say? It is private, very luxurious, and has 270 degrees of waterfront, on I don't know how many acres. We especially appreciated the attention to detail across the board here. Amazing, and we've already booked another week for May of 2022.”
