Interaction with guests
Our local caretaker can meet you for check-in or leave the keys for you. If you have any problems or concerns during your stay, she's just a phone call away. Her phone number, along with lots of local information, is listed in the 'Welcome to the Lake House' notebook on the dining table.

If you use the last of anything, please buy more and leave it. Guests leave squeeze-bottle condiments in the fridge and non-perishables for the next guest. Basic cooking supplies are provided as well -- flour, sugar, seasonings, pots, pans, crock pot, etc.

This was a great little house to spend a long weekend. It was directly on the lake and had a great outdoor space. It was fully equipped and the owners went out of their way to make sure we were all set for our stay....More

About the neighbourhood
In the 'Welcome to the Lake House' notebook, we've listed many of the local restaurants and activities.

Norwood has its own cafe and town green for concerts and ice cream. The town beach and boat launches are just up the road as well. Potsdam, the next larger town, has a wide variety of restaurants, a farmers' market, and movie theater. To the north, the town of Massena has an actual drive-in movie, which is a whole lot of fun! Massena also has parks on the St. Lawrence river for playing and fishing.

With a little more effort, you can visit the Almanzo Wilder house in Malone, the Olympic Ice Arena in Lake Placid, Tupper Lake's Woodsmen's Days, the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, or Uncle Sam's Boat Tours in Alexandria Bay.
