We love our Lakeside home and are confident you will too. This tranquil view greets the early riser walking out with camera or morning coffee! The three bedrooms have good mattresses ( pillow or memory foam toppers), and there is plenty of indoor or outdoor seating arrangements for guests to relax individually or in small groups. The beachfront is just 10 paces out the front door. Water shoes are a must for exploring along the shale, shallow shoreline which allows for young children to play under supervison.Sturdy stairs down the deck allow adults to walk into the water where the grade slowly deepens to about 3 feet deep at the end of the dock and the protected bay is perfect for swimming, and opens to the full lake for canoeing, paddleboarding or kayaking, . There is extra docking space for families who choose to rent or bring their own boat. Ample pakring for 3-4 vehicles with both front and back driveways on this corner lot. All linens are provided, even beach towels, water shoes, board games, card and craft items for all ages. Spices and baking staples make cooking, baking or grilling a part of the fun.
We love our Lakeside home. This is what greets the early riser walking out with camera or morning coffee! We bought this when our sons were in there teens and now this is where our grown sons and their friends and family return to rest and refresh. Because it is such a special place to our identity as a family, it is only made available to rent for a limited time in the summer months. We live 20 minutes North of the lake and work in the area. We've been in the area for 23 years and are currently doing rennovations so that, when we are ready to retire, we will live permanently at the Lakehouse.
Jane Stratton purchased this house in 2001
When one is at the lakehouse, it is quiet and peaceful. The favored activity is to sit in one of the many places, inside or outside, where all one sees- is the lake. Long conversations, lots of laughter, quiet time for reading or restful naps are the common pasttimes for those not out at the Races, SPAC, boating, or downtown in charming Saratoga. The fully appointed kitchen provides ongoing conversation around meal preparation(still with a view of the lake through the open, cathedral ceiling front). It's quiet, it's comfortable, it's close to all things Saratoga, it feels like home. We do lots of entertaining here, and our friends and guests LOVE to get an invitation to the Lakehouse because it is so relaxing.(Plus my husband is a great cook!-Unfortunately, his creations are not included in the rental price). It is perfectly located. It's on the lake. It's 10 minutes, either direction, into downtown Saratoga and all things on Broadway, 10 min to the Racetrack, 10 min to a shopping plaza and pharmacy with Major chain 24 hour grocery store.
Three separate bedrooms means the house comfortably handles 6 adults: a king master suite with own full bathroom compliments two other bedrooms with queen and double beds. Roads within the community or around the area provide for running/ walking enjoyment. There really is something for every family here. Young children are not counted as additional guests, and the futon in the TV room or large Master bedroom floor accommodates extra sleeping room for children beyond the 3 bedrooms. Central Air conditioning is the second best feature of the Lakehouse( next to the view) , but a walk into the lake on hot days is so refresing, and the shallow bay allows for adults to walk about a good 30-50 feet towards lake center and still be able to touch bottom.
