Description from the owner
The Apple is one of Camp Driftwoodâ€™s dozen unique, Adirondack-style cabins, on the shore of wild and wonderful Indian Lake.
The Camp, established in 1919, is situated on 10 hilly acres. Its cabins are well-screened from one another by natural woods and undergrowth. Each has 2 or 3 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishings, a relaxing porch, outdoor fireplace and lake view.
The lakefront at Camp ranges from a fairly shallow sandy beach in a sheltered cove to rock-ribbed, deep water off a promontory. Other waterfront features include a boat dock, swimming float and lean-to with communal fireplace. We provide ka...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Beautiful, good Price, good getaway.
The cabin is placed among other cabins, but it did not feel like they were too close. The owner is very friendly. The place was clean. Just remember to bring Everthing even dish washing soap, toiletpaper, salt etc.
There are great hiking routes for amateurs like us in the area.
Columbus Day Weekend 2012
Sometimes my girlfriend and I have a hard time submitting a review on Trip advisor. When we love a place, we don't want anyone else to know about "our" favorite retreat. We decided to submit a review because we were in shock reading a few of the other reviews for Driftwood. To us, anything but a 5 star positive review is inconceivable. We choose to stay at Driftwood because we appreciate the quality and simplicity of the cabins coupled with our love of the outdoors and the adirondacks. With that in mind, Driftwood doesn't disappoint. Jon has decorated each cabin with a rustic attention to detail. My girlfriend and I never sleep as well as we do at Driftwood. The bed was incredible - we slept 10+ hours each night - so comfortable. The cabin was immaculate. The hardwood flows glistened. The bedding (bedspread) was crisp and clean. We had the woodstove burning throughout our stay. Jon provides ample firewood and kindling is abundant around the cabin grounds. Without going into too much detail, Driftwood is a relaxing, back to basics vacation retreat.
restful, quiet place to retreat
We stayed in the 2 bedroom cabin called Hemlock and it was perfect for us and our dog - simple but clean. Rustic but with all the amenities needed to have a restful time, no gadgets, TV, etc. Had plenty of hot water, nice heat sources, comfortable furnishings and kitchen supplies. Really liked the double porch (one screened and one outside to the air)- our dog loved the lake! Make sure you get groceries before you come up the area - hard to find things once you're up here. Took Sagamore Great Camp tour in Racquette Lake and took a gondola ride at Gore Mountain - great scenery for drives and plentiful lakes for boating, etc.. Didn't get to hike or kayak as much as we wanted - next time! Wonderful vacation spot once you take the time to get all the way here - a bit far from south pa area. Plan to go again for sure - the owners were very nice and gave us our privacy as did all the other cabin tenants - everyone friendly and low key.

Winter Getaway, 19-24 February 2012
I was looking for an excursion away from urban civilization, work, computers, email, and so forth - a week along with my girlfriend.
I stayed in the apple cabin from February 19th-24th. We had a great time relaxing in front of the warm fireplace/stove, reading books and drinking wine. It was nice to get away from the world, with no cell service (verizon) or internet. Both are available nearby though, as referenced in the guide book/manual left in the cabin for us.
The cabin itself is in good condition. It is sturdy, warm (centrally heated), and has hot & cold water for drinking/showering/dishwashing/etc. All furniture and beds were clean, and there was no problems whatsoever with appearances, smells, or anything else you might worry about in this type of cabin setup.
There was a large stock of firewood available for the fireplace, though the logs I retrieved from outside were a little wet. A short bake in the kitchen's oven got them ready to burn quickly, though.
The kitchen has all the utensils and cookware you might need, and the fridge/freezer, microwave, gas stove & oven work perfectly.
Bring food! The town nearby has very, very bare essentials and that's it.
Other things to bring - dish towels, dish soap, bath towels, toiletries, bath soap, lighters/matches, blankets, bedsheets (1 queen, 2 twins, 2 bunkbeds), extra pillows (for lounging comfortably in front of the fire). Music/movies as desired.
You have a great view of Indian lake from the cabin. It was too cold to lounge outside in the screened-in porch, but anyone going during bug season would find that a nice addon. There are an abundance of chairs and benches to relax on.
There is also an outdoor stone fireplace on the outside portion of the porch (not screened in) for use, but again due to the cold we forewent its use.
The lake was frozen over during our stay and we did a "hike" through the cabin/campgrounds, along the lake, and envied all the beautiful cabins along the shoreline.
Fantastic Place to Stay
Camp Driftwood on Indian Lake is the most beautiful spot in the world. The lake is surrounded by mountains and remote ponds, so there are plenty of places to hike. The fishing in the lake is excellent, and swimming at Camp Driftwood can be off of a dock into very deep water or a nice sandy beach in a protected cove. The Voorhees have rowboats, canoes, kayaks, and even a sailboat for their renters all for free.
All the cabins have a view of the lake, and the Cedar Cabin and the Birch Cabin are right on the lake. The cabins are really houses, not what I would consider a cabin. The rooms are separated, the kitchens are complete, and the bathrooms have a shower. To heat the cabin, they have wood stoves, and in the cabin we had, also has a gas furnace. A ceiling fan keeps the air moving. The Voorhees supply the kitchenware and the blankets and pillows for the bed. The beds are extremely comfortable after a hard day of playing. The atmosphere is really a home away from home.
Camp Driftwood is also a welcoming community. After only a couple of days, everyone in the camp is friends. Not just friends for the week, but families end up staying in touch with each other throughout the year. The kids seem to instantly find other kids to play with, and I've seen best friends form in less than a week. After a couple of days, they forget all about TV, Phones, and the Internet.

One Week is Not Enough!
My husband, eight year old son and two year old daughter stayed in the Pine Cabin. It could not possibly have been more perfect for us. It is a classic 1930's adirondack cabin with fantastic period furniture and decor. As soon as we entered the front door, it felt like home. The cabin was immaculately clean and looked very fresh and inviting. The really lovely part about the cabin is the land it is situated on. There is a rolling hill dotted with apple trees leading down to the 'winter office'. An old, much-loved swingset was every morning's first destination for the toddlers while we had coffee on the screened porch. All week we tracked a nest of woodpeckers that had recently hatched. Each day we'd watch the parents fly back and forth bringing food all day long for the chicks. We were perfectly situated with the nearest two cabins that were rented by our friends, so it truly felt like we had our own little neighborhood. A short walk to the quiet beach area - it was all just so perfect. I was ready to stay for the whole summer!
The Real adirondacks
We recently rented two cabins and gathered relatives from several states to spend a week together. I had taken my now-grown nephews to Camp Driftwood as kids, and we were pleased to discover that the lake and camp were pretty much as we remembered, with the addition of some modern conveniences. The 5 kids and 7 adults loved the water sports, and the chance to eat and play together. The kitchen was convenient to use. Sharing a bathroom with 5 others was challenging at times... but is part of the wilderness experience. My soon-to-be-thirteen-year-old nephew exclaimed one morning, "This is the best vacation I ever had. It is better than Hawaii."
we have been going hear for the past 5 years and there is no other place on earth like this camp. We are both older but not dead and we love to swim,hike and read our books in quiet.
