|We offer private island lodging in Adirondack camps, seasonally for rent in the Adirondacks, North West slope. Yes, our island "camp" , (as we up North call the woods retreats others call cottages or lodges) is in the Adirondacks of upstate New York ( not the city but the state) about four to six hours from N.Y.C. : a lakefront vacation rental ( and an island has three hundred sixty degrees of unleashed free range, lake front rental ) which is child and pet friendly - dog cat or bird. We offer family style Adirondack lodging for one small group of up to eight or ten at a time to enjoy the island's woods, path , and rustic cottages, plus a shallow- water, sand- bottom beach, swim raft, small boat dock, extra sleeping cabins, with usually one of us kid and dog friendly native islanders to welcome and orient you. We have plumbing and electric utilities. You will be able to connect with your Verizon and ATandT cell phones, and probably others. Verizon mobil broadband also works here...maybe not as swiftly as other places. We have no T.V. here.
No smoking here except in the fireplace, no fireworks at all.. No air conditioning: don't need it.
Big breeze, broad view through tall trees. Eagle, Osprey, Vulture, Grouse, and Loon: all birds stop here.

There is ordinarily nothing much for you to do here on Loon Island.
We have sand, water, rocks and trees, birds and beasts , books and maps, plus a lot of world war II era National Geographics... but if you really want something to do, you should probably bring it with you or go somewhere else.
Dogs do not find this to be a problem, and we welcome their kind.
Way to the Island
The paths that lead to and wander the island are scenic but rough and rocky, as is any woods path in the Adirondacks, so we are not wheel-chair acessable and the way is not safe for unassisted infirm people, or for any dark-of -night guest arrivals. In Saturday before seven p.m. and after three , except by arrangement; out Sunday before seven p.m. When you have reserved some time on the island, we will send you detailed instructions for finding your way to us.
