EVERGREEN is situated among majestic pines on a three-acre lot with a large sunny yard and beautiful woods, Evergreen is a 3 bedroom year-round cabin, an ideal nature lover’s getaway in all seasons. Winter sports enthusiasts will enjoy Evergreen’s proximity to great cross-country skiing and ice-skating at world-renowned Lapland Lake Resort; downhill skiing at Royal Mountain; ice-fishing on Caroga Lake; snowmobiling, snowshoe trekking and cross-country skiing on a large network of maintained trails. In warmer weather, bring kayaks or canoes or rent ours – there’s an easy launch just steps away at our dock on East Caroga Lake. Swim there or at our sandy, kid-friendly association beach, a 3-minute drive. The lake has many coves to explore and is well stocked for sports fishing. A channel connects to West Caroga Lake, for a combined total of close to 700 acres of boating, fishing, swimming, exploring. Walking through Evergreen’s woods in the spring wildflower season, you might chance upon rare lady’s slippers; pitcher plants are abundant in a nearby cove. Fall foliage is glorious. Hiking trails, 17 golf courses, fishing streams, hidden lakes, and gorgeous views from a mountaintop fire tower are all nearby.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF UPDATING THE HOUSE. EVERGREEN WILL BE EVEN BETTER THAN THE EXISTING PICS BUT YOU GET THE IDEA :)
Evergreen is furnished throughout in nostalgic ‘50’s funk style. It’s the camp you remember – but better!
The living room, furnished in full mid-century retro glory, has two sets of sliding glass doors to a wrap-around deck. A white flokati rug grounds the seating area, with rattan sofas and chairs covered in vintage barkcloth forest leaf prints, a round mirror-topped rattan coffee table and a fabulous wire swivel rocker with leopard-print armrests. A TV with DVD, stereo, board games, cards & poker chips offer entertainment.
Vibrant contemporary paintings, vintage lamps, pillar candles in tall wrought-iron holders, and a fire-view propane stove add to the ambience.
Evergreen accommodates up to six guests with one full bed, one queen bed and 2 twins. One bedroom is furnished with a mid-century modern tiger-maple suite, lit with folk-art popsicle-stick lamps. A second bedroom with antique full bed has vintage barkcloth drapes. The classic 50’s twin bedroom has hard-rock maple beds with cowboy chenille spreads and a spectacular collection of souvenir banners.
All the bedrooms have high privacy windows with beautiful treetop views, vintage bedspreads, pillows and warm blankets. You provide sheets, pillowcases and towels.
The 50’s retro theme continues in the bathroom, whose tub sports a floral barkcloth shower curtain.
The full-equipped eat-in kitchen has a broad picture window with East Caroga Lake glimpsed through pines. A large mirror over the kitchen sink reflects the view. Appliances include a gas range with double ovens, full-size refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee grinder and maker, blender, electric skillet and fondue pot. A gas grill is conveniently located on the deck just outside the kitchen, along with outdoor dining. An outdoor fireplace is perfect for bonfires with hotdogs & s’mores.
Evergreen is on a quiet road rimming the lake in the village of Caroga Lake, within walking distance of all services and 15 minutes from the historic sister-cities of Gloversville and Johnstown. Centrally located in the accessible southern Adirondacks, Evergreen is a great location for easy daytrip excursions to Saratoga (Performing Arts Center, Thoroughbred Racing and much more), Lake George, Great Sacandaga Lake, Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame, Farmers’ Museum, Fennimore Museum, Howe Caverns), the Albany capital region, and much of the 6 million acre Adirondack Park, including Blue Mountain Lake and Tupper Lake, homes of renowned Adirondack regional museums.
