About Rose Gorgen

We consist of husband, wife, and two sons. Husband grew up in Albany and as a result the family were frequent visitors to the Albany area. After years of staying in family guest rooms, we decided to build a northern home for vacations, and ultimately retirement. Not only were we crazy to build long-distance from Florida, but who lives in sunny Florida and retires to the North! Of sound mind on both counts - house turned out to be a beauty & couldn't have chosen better for retirement - providing we can enjoy the beautiful seasons in NY and escape the cold on occasion.

Why Rose Gorgen chose Warrensburg

The Lake George area holds great memories for us and always was the place to be. We were delighted to find a stunning piece of riverside property containing a 120 year old house, which had a hidden 'for sale' sign. After much time and $ attempting to save the old house, had it bulldozed to start anew. Although the long distance building project lasted 3-4 years, the results are worth it. A pictorial history of the building experience is available for your pleasure.

What makes this house unique

Our home is convenient and PRIVATE! Convenient in location and convenient in living. The house contains everything that we or visitors might need (with the exception of personal items). If you are looking for a 4 plates, 4 forks, etc. kind of place, this is not it! We come and go regularly and leave the house as if we were returning home. So far our 'homey' method has worked, and guests have cared for and enjoyed our home like their own. Did I mention the surroundings? The beauty of nature's 4 seasons surround the house, The spacious decks and plentiful doors and windows encourage staying put and contemplating what's good about life. During most seasons of the year, being surrounded by trees gives you total privacy.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and I enjoyed "hearing" about all your activities. I agree the soft serve at MARTHA'S is well worth the wait, and meals while watching the river go by, is sooo relaxing. BTW, took your advice re: Adirondack chairs around the fire pit. Much nicer.
Thank you & hope to see you again. Rose

Comfortable and Welcoming Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week at the end of July; there were five of us in total: our two sons (age 20 and age 17), our older son's girlfriend (age 19), my husband and me. The house was perfect for our group!

I usually sat on the deck in the morning with coffee and my book and then again in the later afternoon with my adult beverage(s) and my book. We usually went out for dinner, but when we stayed in, we sat on the deck to eat. It was spacious, comfortable, and had a nice view of the Schroon River. One night, there was a big thunderstorm and we could sit on the deck and watch since the deck is covered.

It was very nice to have the finished basement with a TV and bathroom. The boys set their XBox up down there and when we weren't doing something together as a family, they could go downstairs and play games. Very nice!

It was great to have WiFi and cable TV. The livingroom furniture was comfortable and there was enough seating if we all wanted to watch TV together. The kitchen had everything we needed.

The location was very nice. It was a short drive to Lake George Village which has some nice shops for souvenir and Christmas shopping. We also went to Saratoga one day.

I went to a beach in Bolton Landing (Veteran's Memorial, I think is what it was called) which was very nice -- not crowded at all, and only $5 for parking. I also went to the beach one day in Lake George Village (Million Dollar Beach), but it was very crowded. I much preferred Bolton Landing.

Making the reservation was very easy and Rose returned our deposit promptly after we checked out. Both Rose and her sister-in-law, Chris, are very nice, flexible, and they are both happy to answer any questions and provide recommendatins on things to do, where to eat, etc.

We were very with our summer vacation this year and would recommend this house to others.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Three of us came up from NYC for a week in the country. We had never rented a house for a vacation before, and in fact our initial plan was to get two hotel rooms.

Wow, am I glad all the hotels were booked up! If that hadn't happened we never would have found this house.

We had a MUCH better vacation at this house than we ever could have had staying at a hotel, and after staying here once, we've realized how much a house like this can contribute to the rest and relaxation.

For three of us, there was of course so much space that we could all have some solitude. (There's even a second living room, complete with a second home theater system, in the finished basement!)

The kitchen is fully stocked with all the tools and appliances one could want, and a BBQ grill is on the patio... a real treat for us city slickers! And the fact that the kitchen is open to the living room means that we could all hang out together for the entire meal, from prep to cleanup.

For those meals we chose not to cook, we found some great restaurants less than a mile away. Next time we visit we'll try some that we didn't get to the first time!

Finally, the house is perfect for attending any event in Lake George Village. It's just far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle that can overcome the Village during big events, but close enough that the ride into town was just a few minutes.

Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Pleased to have had the opportunity to introduce the "city slickers" to the wonders of the Adirondacks! It may not be NYC, but the sights and sounds are equally impressive. Better yet, you can vary from excitement to solitude in a matter of a couple minutes. It's what a vacation really should be. Enjoy!

Vacation with the family

  • 5 of 5
This rental Property is on the riverside with great facility for extended family who like to vacation together. For two years in a row I have had the honor to rent from Mrs. Rose. She is very kind and accommodating to her guest. Her close friends Kelly helped to check us in and out from the home and were a great resource for the area. My family 4, my parents 2, my sisters family 3 all stayed in the home as it was our own. It is plenty big enough and If you have a group of preteen and teenagers the basement is a great place for them to camp out for the week. with there own tv and bathroom it has plenty of room for them to enjoy vacation. The two loft rooms are large enough for 2 couples as well as the master BR. If need be a blow up mares in the study will work out as well. Enjoy the night life of Lake George and attend some of the natural local treasures. I recommend the fort, fireworks, arcade, natural bridge stone, and the old time carnival like amusement park Santa land great for the kids. Enjoy your vacation, Rose provides a great resource book for menus and planning.

Owner's Response: Melisssa, so good to hear from you. I've missed hearing about your vacation plans for this summer, as well as family updates. You are always welcome to visit; you and your extended family have been great to "get to know". Besides, you seem to enjoy the house and time in the mountains as much as I do! Rose

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just came back from this beautiful home with the most magnificent views. This home is nestled in the Adirondacks yet so close to Lake George with out the hustle and bustle of the crowds. Rose has everthing you need in a home for your use, We had breakfast with a view every morning.and watched the stars at night by the campfire.
Rose I can't thank you enough for sharing you home with my family and giving us such great memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you !!

Vincent and Susan Loved The House

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed at this house in August of 2010 and it was great! We loved the fact that our two girls had their own bedrooms and bathroom upstairs and that there was so much room. We also loved the back porch my wife and I spent a great deal of time out there soaking in the nature and the view of the river.

To us, relaxing and taking it slow is really what vacation is all about and finding a good house like this one really makes the vacation something special. We also loved the nice big cozy couches and at the end of the day, it was great to chill out relax. The open floor plan with the kitchen and living room was also great because we could all be together.

The location is perfect because it is right in the village of Warrensburg and a hop away from Lake George. The owner Rose is a pleasure to deal with and she is very honest and trustworthy. I would highly recommend this house as long as I get my week locked in first!
