“A great place for family relaxation and fun”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The lodge gave us everything we needed to have a great week in the sun enjoying everything the Adirondacks have to offer. We loved the sandy beach entry for our young children, and also that the beach was right near the dock and the kids could be in full view playing in the water while the adults sat in the Adirondack chairs enjoying beer and sun and adult conversation. Everything about the lodge was awesome and made it feel like our own home even though we were only there for a week. We love the quiet privacy aspect of the lake as it didn't have a lot of traffic or people on it. We enjoyed several hikes in the area that were appropriately challenging for adults as well as good for children if you move slowly. The treehouse was just beautiful in a nice way for my parents to have some privacy away from all of us with our kids in the main lodge, and we enjoyed coming together around the awesome fire pit with great views of the lake every night. We will definitely return to the lodge someday I wish our time there could've been longer thanks for a wonderful vacation!

“The Great Outdoors”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

We enjoyed our week at Atateka Point. The lake was warm, quiet, and perfect for swimming, fishing, and kayaking. We ate dinner each evening down at the dock and spent the nights around a fire watching for shooting stars. We had 4 children with us and they never wanted to leave the property to enjoy other area activities. (We did pull them away for a few hikes and a visit to the Adirondack Museum.) The house was comfortable but the reason to stay here is the lake and outdoor spaces. You will not want to leave!

“Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Atateka Point Lodge and Treehouse Guest Cottage was the perfect weekend getaway from the city. From the moment I arrived, I was squealing with joy over how perfect both the lodge and cottage were. I though it was cute when I saw the pictures, and seeing it in person far exceeded our expectations.

The property is spacious enough that even with 8 people it never felt crowded. We spent a great deal of time down on the dock where there is a covered gazebo and porch swing that made for a great dining experience overlooking the lake and the changing trees. We took full advantage of the two canoes and two kayaks out exploring the calm lake. While we did see a few neighbors the entire lake was calm and quiet and everyone was very respectful. We kept commenting how peaceful it was there!

The hot tub is a great feature and is very clean and well kept and was the perfect place to spend some time. There's a secret hammock down by the lake for relaxing as well. The grill is huge and is great for making meals, plus has a picnic table and adirondack chairs for more outdoor dining space. Both the treehouse and lodge were very clean and adorned with cute adirondack cabin details. Multiple fireplaces also make for a cozy environment.

I couldn't have asked for anything more. We were all blown away with the house and lake and the beauty of the area. We liked it so much, we're planning to come back!!!

So glad you enjoyed your Adirondack get away! The Fall colors are spectacular this year. In addition, we have just upgraded the Treehouse mattress to queen size and replaced the washing machine. We look forward to your return!

We absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay! We met our grown children and their families for vacation. We had every intention of venturing out to explore the Adirondack Park, Lake Placid and Wild Center but no one wanted to leave. The property is set up for relaxation; the covered dock with table and benches provided shade for afternoon lunches, the swing was great to rock baby to sleep, the little sandy beach was awesome for the kids. The outer dock was great for sun-bathing after swimming to the float. My son-in-law and grand-son fished every morning and evening. My only suggestion is to bring everything you need because you will find it hard to leave (even to run to grocery store!)

“Perfect Adirondack Getaway with Friends”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed the first weekend of June at this beautiful lakeside retreat. The cabin and guesthouse provided plenty of room for our group and we could not believe how perfect the camp was. We spent our days on the huge dock (and separate, floating dock) enjoying the crystal clear water of Friends Lake and the nights by the campfire. The lake is far enough away from any major highway that you can actually enjoy the setting as it was intended, as opposed to the constant sound of traffic that plagues many popular Adirondack lakes. But it is close enough to town in case you forgot to pack anything.

We are already planning another trip for next year and we hope we are lucky enough to enjoy another weekend at this beautiful lake house!
