See what our guests are saying about their Adirondack vacation on Paradox Lake at SunderLand Lakeside Cottages.
My Happy Place
“I dream about this lake all year long. We’ve been coming here for 25 years. This is my Happy Place.”
- Robin from Pittsford, NY
"We've been lucky enough to go for the past two years. Absolutely beautiful location, lovely cottages with all necessary amenities. Can cook in the kitchen or on available grills. Great starting place for day trips to local sights and shopping. Highly recommend, owners are lovely!"
I’ve been vacationing at the SunderLands for 35 or so years. It is more than just my family’s “happy place”, it is home.
“After 15 years of coming to Sunder Land on Paradox, my family and I have found a home in Chickadee with its double decks, secret loft bedroom, and private beach. It’s always nice to be surrounded by the families we’ve known for years. Each year is filled with my occasional dips in the lake, making bracelets, watching the kids grow up, buying a silver ring in town and of course, the Wednesday Square Dance, and the oh-so-musical campfires! It’s a wonderful tradition I could never give up.”
- Alana from Potsdam, NY
Very Special Place
“Our family has been vacationing here for thirty years! It has always been a very special place for all of us but became even more so with the birth of our first grandchild. Now we are including the next generation. They have all come to love the place as much as the two preceding generations. We have made wonderful memories … swimming, canoeing, playing raucous games of Scrabble, lying on our backs on the Point looking for falling stars and just hanging out away from the distractions of TV, telephone and the daily grind. I believe we are closer as a family because of the time we have spent together here over the years.”
- Martha from Hamilton, NY
Loved The Lake
For our young boys, the trip to the Adirondacks has become an integral part of their summer. They have always loved the lake and, increasingly the boats, the Point, and the islands but it was Milo who really identified what mattered most. He didn’t start with the water, the frogs, the fishing, or the red kayak. He started with the cabin, with all its rhythms and quirks. The boys eat well and sleep well here. Edgewood has been a very happy cabin.”
- Clive from Manhattan, NY
Many Enjoyable Times
“Many enjoyable times have been had here at Paradox Lake with friends and family. It holds a special place in our hearts and we return year after year. A picture of the view from Kingfisher deck sits on my work desk. When I need to during the day, I gaze at the picture and re-live the peace and quiet.”
- Kathy G. from Portland, ME
Highlight of Year
“This was my 25th visit to SunderLand cottages to celebrate my 27th birthday, climb high peaks, canoe, swim off the Point, enjoy campfires, and star shows (thanks to Gary, our resident astronomer). So many memories here….always a highlight of my year! Thanks for all.”
- Kamaren from Pittsford, NY
"Loon calls echoing across the bay, butterscotch scent of pine needles, warm granite rocks, white pine limbs waving in the breeze, osprey soaring overhead... I've come here every summer for 15 years and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. I adore the proprietors and consider them family! Highly recommended to anyone looking for an authentic Adirondack experience."
“My first trip to Paradox Lake was a complete success! I had a wonderful time in such a beautiful place. We swam, canoed, had a campfire, and simply enjoyed being here.”
Best Family Memories
“This marks 30 years of wonderful times at Paradox Lake! As our families have grown, we now vacation in three cabins. Some of my best family memories are at this lake. Thanks!”
- Lea from Brooklyn, NY
Hard to Leave
“This is our fifth year at Paradox Lake and we plan on returning many more. It has become a tradition to end our summer at SunderLand. Thanks for keeping this special place as it is. It is always hard to leave.”
- Amy, Steven, Julia & Michelle from Manhattan, NY
