We rented this property the fourth week of July. Having never been to the Adirondacks,we didn't know what to expect. Needless to say, we were more than pleasantly surprised when we opened the front door. The house is beautiful, very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed watching the sun set from the back deck. The back deck is so huge that you can find a sunny or shady spot and sit out there any time of the day. The water was warm and very clean. The ladder from the dock made it easy to get in and out of the water. This is the part of the lake where you want to stay because the water is much rougher on the wider part of the lake. I thought there would be a lot of mosquitoes but we were able to sit around the fire pit comfortably and enjoy marshmellows on several nights. Easy ride to Saratoga Springs. Went lazy river tubing down the Hudson. Perfect house to get away from the crowds. I would highly recommend it.
