Wind Song is the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate while enjoying the best that the Adirondacks can offer. By the shores of waters considered to be an undiscovered jewel of the Adirondacks, Wind Song is also close to shopping and other attractions that will enhance your stay in the mountains. Nestled in the northern Adirondacks close to NYS Route 30, Wind Song invites you to enjoy a secluded Adirondack retreat while allowing you easy access to Malone (13 miles), the Adirondack Visitor's Interpretive Center at Paul Smith's (19 miles), Titus Mountain Ski Resort (10 miles) and a host of outdoor activities.

By the shores of waters considered to be an undiscovered jewel of the Adirondacks, Wind Song is also close to shopping and other attractions that will enhance your stay in the mountains. Nestled in the northern Adirondacks close to NYS Route 30, Wind Song invites you to enjoy a secluded Adirondack retreat while allowing you easy access to Malone (13 miles), the Adirondack Visitor's Interpretive Center at Paul Smith's (19 miles), Titus Mountain Ski Resort (10 miles) and a host of outdoor activities. Wind Song sits under a stand of grand old white pines on the shore of a small, tranquil pond that flows into the larger Deer River Flow. For the paddler or fisherman, it is a slice of Adirondack heaven. The fishery of Horseshoe Pond and Deer River Flow is a critically important state fishery for several sport species. Birders will find heron, osprey, loons and bald eagles. For a family, it can be a vacation to remember. For the person just looking to get away from it all, it is a quiet retreat from the rush of modern life. The camp includes two bedrooms with two twin beds each, a living room with a fold-out couch, and an entertainment center with television, VCR, radio and CD player. The kitchen has standard appliances including refrigerator/freezer, stove and oven, and microwave. The bath has a vanity, toilet and shower. A full-sized water heater provides plenty of hot water. The dining room and office has a full view of the pond. Attached to the dining room is a large screened porch that is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the view. An outbuilding is available for storage during your stay. As with many Adirondack camps, the greatest attraction is the water. A short paddle will bring you the breathtaking scenery and mountain vistas that Horseshoe Pond affords. A longer one will take you to Deer River Flow, and its magical views. Access for canoes, kayaks and swimming is easy from the grassy beach next to the dock by the boathouse. The boathouse is not available for use; however, canoes and kayaks may be secured safely to the dock. (If you need to rent a canoe for your stay, consider Mac's Canoe Livery in Clear Lake, 30 miles south on Rt. 30, http://www.macscanoe.com/.) Motorboats are discouraged. Horseshoe Pond flows into the larger Deer River Flow just downstream from Wind Song; both water bodies have excellent fishing. There is a campground within a few miles with access to the Flow for larger boats. Things to Do: Swim! Boat! Hike! Fish! Relax! Read! Rejuvenate! --Meacham Lake State Park: ~15 miles --Paul Smiths: ~20 miles (the Adirondack Park Visitor's Interpretive Center with museum, theater and miles of hiking/ski trails) --Saranac Lake: ~30 miles (Gateway to the High Peaks) --Lake Placid: ~37 miles --Tupper Lake: ~40 miles (The Wild Center: the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks) --Blue Mountain Lake: ~78 miles (The Adirondack Museum) On-Site Amenities: • 100% Smoke Free (no indoor smoking ever by owners or renters) • Adirondack Chairs • Alarm Clock • Beach, Private • Blender • Book Collection • Budget Rental (always $1,000 or less per week) • Cell Phone coverage through Verizon only (If your Verizon phone has a hot spot, internet access is possible.) • CD Player • Dock • DVD Player • Fan (ceiling) • Fan (portable) • Fire Pit • First Aid Kit • Games and/or Puzzles • Ironing Board/Iron • Kitchenware (dishes, pots, utensils, etc.) • Lakefront • Microwave • Pond Frontage (large pond) • Porch (screen) • Private • Radio • Refrigerator/Freezer (full size) • Scenic View from Inside House • Scenic View from Outside House • Stereo • Stove/Oven • Telephone • Television, Standard • Toaster Oven • Tourist Information Folder • VCR Player • Woodstove (wood burning) Pet Policy: Pets are welcome!

About the neighbourhood
Wind Song is an Adirondack cottage in a woodsy setting on a short dirt lane that parallels the shores of Horseshoe Pond. It is the second cottage on the lane, and while neighbors are near, they are not on top of the property. The properties on either side of Wind Song are private vacation properties that are infrequently inhabited. Wind Song is, therefore, a very private, cozy retreat. Activities On Site: • Boating • Canoeing/Kayaking • Fishing • Lake • Private Beach • Sailing • Snow Shoeing Activities 1-15 Minutes: • ATM (Cash) Machine • ATV Trails • Bank • Bar/Tavern/Brew Pub • Canoe/Kayak Rentals • Church • Fitness Club • Gas Station • Golf Course • Grocery Store - Large • Grocery Store - Small • Hiking Trail(s) • Historic Site • Hospital • Laundromat ...
How to get there
Airports are located in Saranac Lake to the south and Malone to the north. Greyhound bus service between Malone and Saranac Lake can drop you off on Rt. 30 just a short walk to the property.
