The Bungalow is a fully-equipped, 3-1/2 bedroom, 3 bath cabin nestled in the woods near the
shore of Silver Lake, a small, private lake directly across Rt. 3 from Cranberry Lake. The cabin
includes a queen size bed in the master bedroom, and two single beds in each of the other
two bedrooms. There is also a futon available. The cabin will sleep a maximum of eight.
Amenities include a telephone, CD/tape stereo system, a small B/W TV set and a VHS video
tape player (there is no TV reception in the cabin), lots of games and puzzles and a 500 book
lending library – leave one/take one. There is also a sizable collection of information on the
Adirondacks, ecology, trail maps and guides etc. Outdoor amenities include a charcoal grill,
a picnic table, Adirondack chairs, a badminton net in the side yard, a fire pit and a hammock.
The cabin includes an excellent, fully-equipped kitchen (new in 2003), a screened in front
porch with rockers and small tables, and two small open porches. The place comes with a
canoe and rowboat, and a private dock. The cabin sits on 17+ acres of forested land and
includes nearly 350 feet of waterfront on Silver Lake.
The cabin is not right on the water. It is about a one minute walk down to the dock. Many
of our guests have small children, and view this separation from the water as a distinct advantage.
The cabin is fully winterized and can be used year-round. Weekly summer rentals start in June
and run through September. The Bungalow can be rented for long weekends in the fall and spring.
Silver Lake is a small, private, spring-fed lake about one mile long and about 3/8 of a mile wide.
There is no public access to the lake for either swimming or fishing. It is a "paddle only" lake –
no motorboats are allowed. This makes the lake much quieter and cleaner, to say nothing of safer.
Most of the shoreline is bounded by land that is forever wild and will never be developed. The
lake is largely inaccessible except by foot, and there is a path around the lake – hiking it takes
about an hour and a half if the beavers don’t have their dam up on the northern end of the lake,
a bit longer if you have to go around their latest construction project. Other wildlife include
deer, river otters, loons, ducks, turtles, frogs, raccoons, coyotes, possums, wild turkeys, an
occasional black bear, hawks, pilleated woodpeckers, lots of hummingbirds and an eagle who
lives somewhere in the area. The fishing is usually very good, since the lake is not publicly
available and is seldom fished in.
