Our Shangri-La is Historic yet Modern

Originally built in 1907, it is designed for comfort in all seasons and decorum evokes nostalgia of the Adirondacks. Serenity and peace permeate the atmosphere.

Our Shangri-La lets you make the choice:

Cook outdoors on the huge cobblestone grill or in the modern kitchen.

Enjoy your food on the spacious patio or indoors in the large dining room over looking the lake.

Spend the day basking on the beach or enjoy the view the lake from five of the seven of the lodge's rooms.

In fall, winter or spring relax in the glow of one of two back to back fireplaces or simply enjoy the convenience of modern forced air heat.

The lodge offers the additional amenities of a complete kitchen, modern bedrooms, a water supply of unrivaled quality, and a fully automatic emergency electrical power system.

I wouldn't recommend swimming on the small sandbeach two of the kids had to have leeches removed from there body after swimming "twice" by the third day we couldn't allow them to go swimming anymore this is an OK place if you plan to do a lot of sightseeing and not spend much time at the house be careful of the owner he over sells a lot and under delivers we also had an issue with bogus charges after the vacation was over a way that the owner could try to get more money

Management response:

For your very special family: Anthony DeMarchi, alias 315 Anthony, posted the ONLY negative review in Shangri-La's entire 26 years of renting. From the beginning to the very end of his tenancy, he expressed to me a strong positive conviction about Shangri-La.
