About Heather Gillen

The Gillen Pond is a dream come true for our grandparents, the late George and Mary Gillen.

In 1980, this house was built by many members of the Gillen family along with their friends. This house was originally built for their retirement years with the hopes that it would one day become a gathering place for future Gillen generations.

Family was of utmost importance to George and Mary. The Gillen grandchildren now want to share their experiences with you and enable you to build a lifetime of memories with your family.

Why Heather Gillen chose New Lebanon

Our property consists of 1500 sq. feet of lower level living space and our man made 3.5 acre pond. We have many trails around our property. This home is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful sounds of nature.

What makes this house unique

Our property is located in a private and peaceful spot, perfect for family gatherings. A truly relaxing getaway, our pond is man-made & has grown into a wonderful watering hole, filled with hours of fun for all ages.

Enjoy your stay, and be sure to leave us a note in our guest journal sharing your experiences at our rental home.

peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We had three families in our group and had plenty of room to sleep, play, eat and for kids to play (in and out--our weather was gorgeous!). The house is very private; a beautiful property. Heather made a great suggestion which was to bring everything you need as far as food goes because the closest grocery is not that close! ;-) We found beautiful hiking trails at the Hand Conservation and all around had a great time in a perfectly cozy and well equipped place to unwind! WiFi was a great bonus! Accessible for our three parties traveling from downstate, upstate and MA. We would definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thank you,
We are so happy to hear that you and your family had a great time enjoying the weather, the great outdoors and the local Conservation land. We are so lucky to have this great family getaway, and all the space to play and hike.

Glad to hear you also planned well, yes, local food shopping is a drive(about a half lour), and if you come prepared, you will have more time to enjoy

Look forward to having you and your family back again.
Heather

A nice break from it all!

  • 4 of 5
A great get away. Peaceful and clean, and the best part is the pond is steps away from the back door!! We enjoyed cozying up to the woodstove at night and we were outside hiking, canoeing and just plain relaxing all day long! I highly recommend this place!

Ready to Unplug!!

This is a great place if you just want to unplug and unwind! Very quiet! Lake is beautiful with wonderful trails all around it. If you just need to spend some peaceful quiet time away from everything and everyone - or if you want to reconnect with that special person - this is the place to go!!
