Four generations of our family have grown up and developed a deep love for 3 Birches, which offers a rare escape to the beauty and peace of nature. Lake views inspire. The perfect place to unwind, relax, and have FUN!
Our Vacation rental is located in a quiet, protected bay on Rainbow Lake. Ducks, mergansers, heron and loons visit often. Depending on when you come. You may see the babies riding on their loons back or learning how to dive. There are close to 25 miles of waterways and protect shorelines that run along Rainbow Lake, Clear Pond, Onchiota and Kushaqua.
When you see Loons, herons… well that means the fishing is fantastic. Largemouth Bass, smallmouth bass, walleyes, pike, perch, various kinds of sunnies, bullheads, trout… I personally have seen trophy size lake trout in the spring. Some swim to Rainbow Lake to spawn weeks after ice out. Then head back down to the deeper waters along the connecting lakes and ponds. In the fall some come looking for a mate while fattening up for the winter.
Looking to go on a specific adventure? We can connect you to a license guide who specialize in the endless activities the area offers. Whether it be hiking the Adirondack High Peaks. Fishing for Trout or Bass. Cross country skiing, Snowshoeing or Ice Fishing. They will make it a memory that will last a lifetime.
Note: When possible, the owner would be happy to plan to take you and your family out for a boat ride. Even take you fishing for a few hours. She Love bass fishing and knows the lakes very well!
In between catches, take a moment to take in the views. They are awesome! When not playing. Sit outside on the deck and relax. Take in the beauty that surrounds you. Read a good book. Lie out on the hammock. Watch the sunset. Hear the loons call, may even a Owls hoot.
