My husband, 8-year old son, dog and I spent a terrific week at Lake George and were lucky enough to rent Charlene (the cottage) on Halcyon property. he setting is beautiful and the location is terrific. Our son and dog had a fun time exploring the grounds. My husband, a nature photographer, was able to photograph some wildlife (primarily birds), beautiful plants and a lovely sunrise. We were close to town and yet far from crowds. Lake George is pristine and access to the lake is just steps from the cottage. Swimming was convenient, easy and refreshing. On Thursday night, we were able to enjoy a perfect view of the weekly fireworks from the dock on the property.
The cottage is as advertised and provides all you need for simple living with an added benefit of a strong wifi connection. The family lives in the main house on the same property and are very gracious hosts. More than once they checked to be sure that we had everything that we needed and were enjoying ourselves. They were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful while respecting our privacy.
This was a great vacation with lots to do (rain or shine) in and around Lake George.
