Built circa 1890 as a private lodge, “Hiawatha” is one of the oldest
camps on Mountain Lake, a small, quiet lake in the Southern
Adirondacks. Situated 25 feet above the water on a sunny
slope, “Hiawatha” is graced with Gorgeous Sunset Views Of The Lake
from its four bedrooms and from the living room and porch spanning
its lakefront facade. A flight of steps leads from the deep,
furnished porch of the traditional brown-shingled cottage to a 42-
foot long stone-walled waterfront with a shallow, hard bottom, ideal
for swimming.

“Hiawatha” has been lovingly maintained and recently renovated as a
traditional Three-Season Cottage charmingly decorated with
comfortable camp furnishings. Vintage accessories and original art
distinguish this pleasant, versatile living space.

The bright, Lake-View Living Room has freshly whitewashed cedar
shingle walls and high, exposed-beam ceilings. New and antique
classic cottage furniture, upholstered and painted in subtle leaf-
greens and aquas, includes a queen sleeper-sofa, love seat,
comfortable reading chairs and cushioned wicker. Neutral, textural
carpeting warms the room. The original riverstone mantel is fitted
with an ivory enameled Gas Fireplace, extending the vacation season
into spring and fall. A dining table sits beneath a wide lakefront
window; a folding games table & chairs can be set up for playing one
of the classic board games. An entertainment armoire contains
standard-service satellite TV with VCR and DVD, a stereo and a
selection of CD’s and videos. Wireless Dial-Up Internet Service is
provided for your laptop.

The large Kitchen is wonderful for a big family or two families
vacationing together - it has two stoves (one gas, one electric),
two refrigerators and a double sink! Delicious local spring water
for drinking is provided in a water cooler. A breakfast center is
stocked with microwave, coffee maker, espresso machine, toaster and
electric teapot. Other small appliances include a blender, popcorn
popper, toaster oven, electric mixer and crockpot. Iron skillets,
stainless pots and sharp knives make cooking a pleasure. Vintage and
contemporary tableware including Jadeite and two full sets of
dishes, one in cream and green and the other in a wild yellow rose
pattern, set a charming table. A CD stereo/radio provides music. A
stainless Gas Grill with stovetop burner is located just outside the
kitchen door, with a lake view.

and a tub with shower. A hairdryer, iron and ironing board are

comforters, feather pillows, fleece blankets, and charming vintage
bedspreads. You provide sheets, pillowcases and towels.

With a generous dock on a beautiful stone-terraced
Waterfront, “Hiawatha” is a comfortable and well-furnished base for
water sports and outdoor activities. Life here centers on the water,
with much of the activity taking place on the house’s ample Porch
And Dock, furnished with all-season wicker and teak, including a
dining table, Adirondack chairs and steamer chaises. Lattice on a
side wall of the porch and hemlock hedges provide privacy. A gas
patio heater extends the pleasant evenings. Please note that no
outdoor fires of any kind are allowed due to fire hazard.

diving board at the end of the dock. An aluminum rowboat is moored
to the dock for your use. While “Hiawatha” cannot accommodate a
motorboat or jet ski, you’re welcome to bring kayaks or canoes, or
rent ours by the day or week.

Located in the quiet township of Bleecker, Mountain Lake is
surrounded by deep woods on the southern edge of the six million
acre Adirondack Park, just half an hour from the New York State
Thruway. A selection of guidebooks and maps highlights the abundance
of well-marked trails in the area for Hiking And Mountain Biking. A
footpath at the water’s edge circles the lake, or hike a trail
behind “Hiawatha” to another nearby lake. There are 7 Golf Courses

small shops in the area and large antiques malls in nearby
