Eagle Crag Manor
Weekly rentals only, Saturday noon to Saturday noon.
Eagle Crag Manor is a large and roomy rustic wood frame cottage nestled between the trees of the surrounding Adirondack forest. Set back for privacy 100 feet from the shoreline of Eagle Crag Lake, you have a wonderful view of the water from both the living room and the generous screened-in porch. The cottage is paneled in knotty pine in some places, open to the studs and rafters elsewhere. A massive stonework fireplace dominates the living-dining area. Across the room, a stairway with balustrade of natural forest logs curves up to an overhanging balcony illuminated by clerestory windows.
Two and a half bedrooms upstairs, and one down, provide plenty of sleeping space. You will find a double bed in one of the upstairs rooms, twin beds in the other two, and a roll-a-way in the half. There is even a baby's crib available if needed.
Eagle Crag Manor is a rustic Adirondack cabin over 60 years of age. It is open to the studs in many places, has a few leaks through the stone of the fireplace, and may have a few watermarks on the woodwork. If you are expecting the Hilton, then please go to the Hilton. But, if you are looking for a clean, pleasant cottage with authentic Adirondack charm, privacy, and isolation in a forest setting, you should be very pleased.
We rent this cottage as a housekeeping unit. You must thoroughly clean the cottage just prior to your departure. Pillows and blankets are provided for your use, but you need to bring your own linens: towels, sheets, pillow cases, and all expendables such as soaps and toilet paper. You must supply your own firewood from the wood racks to be found in Tupper Lake, where you will also find an assortment of grocery stores and other amenities. You may use any firewood you find behind the cottage that has been left over from spring clean-up or previous tenants.
Pets are not allowed.
You are responsible for cottage cleanup.
Prices quoted are for the year 2022 (unchanged since 2016). Prices charged, including the balance of your cottage rental, are those currently in effect at the time of your arrival regardless of when you made your reservation. We shall notify those making reservations prior to the new year if there is any change in the rate. If you are dissatisfied with the new rate, you may cancel your reservation by the end of February and I shall return your deposit. If you are concerned about the possibility of a rate change and have not heard from me, contact me (518-359-9300) prior to the end of February.
Our rental week runs from Saturday noon to Saturday noon. We rent for whole week periods only during the spring, summer, and fall - our cottages are not winterized. The rate for Eagle Crag Manor is $1100 per week plus tax for up to 6 people, children included. Beyond 6 people, we add $100 per week per person plus tax in excess of 6. (For example 7 people would be $1200.) To make a reservation, we require that you send a deposit of one-half the total amount, and pay the balance upon arrival. The additional 'tax' mentioned is a 3 percent County 'bed tax'. This tax amounts to $33 on the base rate of $1100. The tax is due when paying the balance. All payments, both deposit and balance, are final and will not be refunded.
Our cottage guests have free access to at least one aluminum rowboat or aluminum canoe. Whether or not the available craft is a boat or canoe depends on whatever is available at the moment of use. Anyone wishing to use an additional boat or canoe must work out an arrangement on their own with our other cottage guests. I expect this will not be difficult as all of our guests are always very friendly people. Our boats are for use ONLY on Eagle Crag Lake. Our canoes may be used ONLY on Eagle Crag, in the outlet of Eagle Crag below the dam, and on Mount Arab Lake. (There is a short carry to Mount Arab Lake.)
Thank you for your interest - you will not be disappointed.
