"Sunset" is a deeply romantic getaway and serene year-round destination for writers, artists, nature lovers and all who appreciate the beauty and gentle pleasures of a quiet Adirondack lake.

It accommodates six, with a queen master bedroom, queen sleeping loft and queen living room sleeper-sofa, and is particularly suitable for adults and older children.
"Sunset's" STUNNING LAKE VIEWS, framed by magnificent pines, include two islands and the daily light show of the setting sun. Sunrise, reflected in the lake, is equally beautiful. An Adir...Read more

Perfect secluded cozy cottage!
My sister & I stayed at Sunset cottage this past weekend. We were looking for a sister retreat to get some time alone, no husbands, kids or distractions. We enjoy each others company so much but only get to see each other about once a year. When we do visit it's usually jam packed with all kinds of obligations to other people. It seems we never have time alone to just "be". Sunset was the perfect solution! We both drove approximatly 4hrs and "ooohed" & "awwwed" at this beautiful hidden treasure! It is impeccably decorated & has everything you might have forgotten to pack. We have made a promise to each other that we will make this an anual event! Thank you to aimee for making everything so easy :)

This place is magical!
Everything about our stay at Sunset was amazing. The whimsical decor and thoughtful touches made for a very comfortable stay. We loved the master bedroom with lake view, with the bed made of birch branches and adorned with strings of white lights. The loft was a fun place for our boys to stay and have a place of their own. Finally, watching the glorious sunsets and star-filled skies from the dock ended every day with wonder!
Funky Peaceful Getaway
My family of four really enjoyed this place! It's clean and comfortable, and beautifully decorated. None of us could decide which bedroom we liked better, the one with the beautiful bed and the twinkle lights, or the cool loft. We enjoyed having the multi-level deck leading down to the water, and of course constant access to the lake. If there were other people around, we didn't hear them -- it was nice and peaceful here. Oh, and the outdoor shower was a big hit, too! This was a great place to get away from the stresses of home and work, unplug, and just relax.

Sunset is our favorite vacation haven. It sits lakefront nestled among glorious varied pine trees. Whether you are resting luxuriously on the queen sized lake view bed, reading by the vast window that also looks out upon the lake or playing on the lake, swimming, boating, fishing or sunning on your favorite float this is a glorious all seasonal home away from home. The decks are spacious and provide shaded respite as well as full sun. The owners have created a very special place. The kitchen is beautiful with every need you could imagine foreseen.
The area is easily accessible to antiquing, leaf watching and local towns of diverse interest are nearby. This is the best of the adirondacks! We have no children so we love to come in Spring and Fall. Some of our happiest memories are nestled at Sunset. Come listen to the magical call of the resident Loons and watch the hummingbirds that call this area home. We promise that watching the sunset on the lovely comfy double swing will be one of your favorite spots. Come soon!

Serene cottage,artistically decorated, surrounded by nature
A great Fall foliage romantic getaway! Cottage is quaint and cozy. Decks allow you to enjoy the sunsets on the lake which are lovely. Cottage has everything you need. Plan to bring some groceries with you if arriving late as you have to travel a bit to get to major supermarket. There is a local store just down the road that has a great variety of groceries. That was the purpose of going there... to be away from it all. Owners are quick to respond to emails and easy to do business with. We are looking to return again in the Fall.

Thank you for your kind review Veronica! How can we get five stars? I notice that we score five stars for everything else but not overall. Let me know how we can make it better! Thank you and we look forward to your return :)
