A great location that brings you everything upstate New York and the Adirondacks have to offer.

The Buddy Shack comfortably sleeps four adults. The main bedroom features a queen bed while the second bedroom has a new twin-over-full bunk bed. The wide open kitchen showcases beautifully-restored exposed beams and peak. It has everything you need to cook and entertain, including a 15.6 cubic-foot. fridge, new microwave, Keurig Duo, four-burner electric range with oven. The sitting room features a bay window with beautiful views of the lake, a cozy couch, a 32-inch TV and an air conditioner. The unique bar nook has a handmade bar, sitting chair and record player/Bluetooth speaker combo. An outdoor shed includes an apartment-size washer/dryer.

The outdoor spaces are the star of the show! The large deck overlooks Kayuta Lake offering stunning views of the water and landscape.
