Our property is located on Upper Chateaugay Lake, one of the 2 northern-most lakes in the Adirondacks. It has 3 adjacent houses. Each is right on the waterfront, but they are very private with lots of space and woods between. We rent them separately, but they can be rented all together.
The first is a large Classic Adirondack Lodge, which sleeps up to 20 people. (Hence the numbers it sleeps).
RATE: $350-405 per night
The second is a Contemporary House (The Montgomery House), which sleeps up to 8.
RATE: $225-$255 per night
The third is a smaller cottage, (Lakeside Cottage) described in detail on this site. For more information, contact me, and I can send pictures and give more details about the other 2 houses and specific availability.
RATES: $220 per night for May, June, and September. 2-night minimum $250 per night for July and August
This two-story little red cottage sits right on the shores of serene and pristine Lake Chateaugay in the northern Adirondacks. From the bedrooms, you can listen to the waves lap on the shore, with a true feeling of being right on the lake. There is a lovely master bedroom upstairs, and a second large bedroom/living space downstairs, as wells as two screened-in sleeping porches. There is a full bathroom with a tub/shower. It is off the grid, but there is a generator for electricity. Propane powers the refrigerator, stove, and oven, hot water, and wall-hung lights. Adjacent to the house is a very large open lawn area, great for soccer games or volleyball, where there is a fire pit, a boat dock, a swimming raft, and a gradual v, great for kids. It is completely private.
PET POLICY: Pets are welcome, as long as they are well behaved and picked up after.

About Us: Our family has been coming to the lake for nearly 60 years. We own the three adjacent houses (the cottage, a contemporary and a classic Adirondack Lodge) and can rent all 3 houses, which sleep, collectively, over 30 people. We live in various parts of the country, the closest in Vermont, and have a multi-generation gathering every summer at the lake to relax, swim, paddle, do yoga, cook great meals, read books, and mostly just enjoy each other. It is our absolute favorite place to be!
Why we think you will enjoy staying in Chateaugay Lake: Watch the sunrise from your bed, take a midnight dip in the lake on a hot night, sit by the fire as it gets dark, relax on the dock or in an Adirondack chair while the kids play in the water, lie in the hammock and read, take a mountain bike ride through the woods, explore the lake by kayak or canoe.....
Why our property is special: Chateaugay Lake itself is incredibly special--uncrowded, clean, serene, quiet, with lovely mountains around. And this property has one of the nicest, most private waterfronts on the lake. The cottage was built in the 1930s on a site right on the lake, which would never be allowed now due to setback regulations. You can lie in the upstairs bedroom and watch the reflection of the sun on the lake dancing on the ceiling, or sit on the porch and watch kids play in the lake. The Lodge was built over 100 years ago, and was owned early on by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's lawyer. (FDR is said to have visited him there.) The contemporary was built by our grandparents in the '70s so they could live in the woods in comfort for half of the year.
