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 4 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. Please note that we no longer have a diving board on the dock as per insurance :( Hiawatha has been lovingly maintained and recently renovated as a traditional three-season cottage charmingly decorated with comfortable camp furnishings.

Lattice on a side wall of the porch and hemlock hedges provide privacy. Please note that no outdoor fires of any kind are allowed due to fire hazard.
