Katskill Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This house is perfect for your family vacation! The sunny, open floor plan with beautiful stone fireplace in the center of the house give the home a real Adirondack feel. The house sits on 1 1/2 acres (largest you will find In the village!) and is close enough to everything, yet very private. Our renters rave about the covered patio which has serene views of the back lawn and woods, and leads to an outdoor fireplace for night-time fun...grab a cocktail, sit on the Adirondack chairs and roast some marshmallows! Then walk down into town for a show in the park, ice cream, or the Thursday night fireworks over the lake! You never have to fight for a parking space....and there is ALWAYS something going on in the village for your family.

Vacationing with grandparents or two families is IDEAL at our home! The lower floor is set up as a separate apt., and has its own bedroom (queen bed), full bath, full kitchen, and Adirondack den with stone wall exposed and full size futon. Send the kids down to the den to watch movies (lots of Disney classics to chose from) and play, later close the door at the end of the night so guests have their privacy! The main floor has a bedroom with rustic log king bed, and the kids camp style room has two sets of bunk beds. The large DR table seats 10, and kitchen has everything you need.....or grill right on the covered patio.

The photos do not lie, our home is well maintained & extremely CLEAN! (A theme in each review from our fantastic families :)

Walk right through our backyard woods and find yourself at the beginning of the Prospect Mountain hiking trial. Pack a lunch and be amazed at the views from the top of the mt! Backpacks are hanging downstairs for you to use.

Shephard park beach is quick 3 block walk. Bring your boat or rent one to explore the over 100 islands on Lake George, equipped with docks, bathrooms, and barbeque pits. Here you can picnic, fish, play ball, swim and enjoy the crystal clear water of the lake. We have 4 kayaks for you to use, and great places to launch them. Two kayaks are adult, one is a double, and another smaller kayak is suitable for children or adults up to 250 lbs.

****NEW this season... FOOSBALL TABLE!!

Our home and property are truly a relaxing sanctuary for your vacation, steps away from the action the kids are looking for. You will never forget your vacation here....and we bet you'll be back next year !

$600 refundable security deposit required :)

We are a family of four who lives at Jersey Shore, yet prefers this amazing lake & village to the beach & boardwalk! We adore this area, our home, and the quality time we spend together here. It gives us great pleasure to give other families the opportunity to spend their vacation here as well :) Vacations are precious time, and we strive for a quality experience here for our guests. We welcome and often act on guest feedback where possible.

Come stay and let us know if you agree!

Claire Hennessy purchased this house in 2007

After renting for years in Lake George, and falling in love with it, we decided to purchase a second home here. Buying this house was a no-brainer! Its architecture is so unique, and the floor plan is just perfect. The home was built in 1951, and everything about it was thoughtfully planned out. Sitting on one of the largest lots in the village was a bonus too! My kids play in the woods, walk to the stream running through it, ride bikes into town and just enjoy good old fashioned fun. Thanks for considering to vacation here!

This house is only 20 minutes from Saratoga ! Looking to stay for the races ? You'll have the best of both worlds.....Lake George and Saratoge!

If you are looking for a sanctuary, that is just steps away from everything, you will find it here. This home lives up to its billing as the best location in town . It is close enough to the village to be reached by a short walk, but far enough away to maintain the tranquil atmosphere of the home. When you first arrive, you enter the serene back yard with plenty of space for outdoor fun or just relaxing on the covered patio. There is also an inviting fire pit for sharing evening ghost stories or making S'mores. Step inside and you are greeted by an immaculate interior filled with comfortable lake-inspired furnishings, and more than enough room for relaxing, quietly reading a book, watching a movie, or having family game-time on a rainy day. The only negative...you will be heartbroken when you have to leave. Don't worry, you can go home and begin planning your trip for next year!

Wonderful family rental, close to village yet private

  • 5 of 5
This house was a good fit for two families plus grandparents. The common rooms were large enough to accommodate our party of ten if we all wanted to be together, but there was plenty of room for us to spread out when we wanted time apart! The house was just as shown in the pictures. The covered patio and outdoor fire pit are really great features you won't find at other rentals.

The location is fantastic if you want to be within walking distance of the village, but still have quiet and privacy. It was ~ five to seven minute walk to the village and Shephard's Park. We needed a stroller for the younger ones in our party (~ 3 years old). The Shephard's Park beach was great for the kids (age 3 - 7). There was no need to go to Million Dollar Beach. We found the beach rules to be very strict relative to what we are used to, and did not spend a lot of time there.

Claire was very helpful before and during our vacation. The house felt like a home, and was nicely decorated. We would recommend this property to others.

The Prospect Mountain hike (just behind the house) was very nice, but I would not recommend for small children. We really enjoyed Capri's pizza on the strip. We saw the Thursday night fireworks from Neptune's restaurant - great place for the whole family. If you are looking to get out of the village check out the Painted Pony Rodeo - also great for families.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This home was positively perfect! We have vacationed with my cousin's family for the past 5 years and this was the most enjoyable. We are 4 adults with 4 children under the age of 9. The house is roomy, full of natural light, and beautifully decorated. One of our favorite features is the covered porch and fire pit. We spent the evenings relaxing outside, barbecuing and then building a fire and roasting marshmallows.

The four kids slept in the bunk bed room, which worked out well. My cousin and her husband slept in the downstairs bedroom and my husband and I slept in the master bedroom. ( The bed was heaven - best sleep I had in ages). The house is roomy. We did not even touch the additional kitchen downstairs. We did however, take advantage of the downstairs den. The kids played games, watched movies and had their own space.

This was our first trip to Lake George and we were concerned about location. The house is close enough to take a quick walk into town, but not in the middle of any hustle and bustle. We spent our days enjoying Million Dollar Beach, fishing, hiking and horse back riding. My 8 year old and my husband fished all week right in town on the docks. They caught little sunnies etc but my daughter had a blast. She seriously caught about 2-3 fish an hour. We took the kids to the Adirondack Museum which is about an hour away but definitely worth the trip. Beautiful grounds and all outdoors- one of my favorites!

Needless to say, we plan on renting the house again. Claire, the owner was fantastic. She was more than happy to answer any questions and offer suggestions. One evening we couldn't light the BBQ.
She called us back immediately. ( I had done it incorrectly)

Lake George won us over and we can't wait to return next summer.

Beautiful property, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with another friend's family and her parents and it was the perfect set-up. It's situated in a quiet neighborhood, just a 10 min walk from all the activities in Lake George Village. The property backs up against the woods and the grounds are beautifully kept. We really enjoyed the outdoor fireplace while the kids were asleep and the spacious patio for our dinners. The kids (and adults) thoroughly enjoyed viewing the summer fireworks from the driveway- the weekend we came, we enjoyed fireworks 3 times! Just know that you won't see the lake with the fireworks, but I thought it was fine, especially since we avoided the crowds and the kids could watch them in their pj's. Claire was very responsive for questions while we were at the property and provides a wealth of info about the area prior to your arrival. The property was very clean as well. Highly recommended, we hope to return! Thanks for the treasured memories :)

Perfect family friendly home, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5
We vacationed here with our two young boys, ages 4 and 6 and the house was just fantastic! Claire was super friendly and helpful. The house was in immaculate condition and the layout is perfect if you are thinking of vacationing with another family. It's extremely spacious. It's close enough to the village to walk to town, but far enough away to give you privacy and quiet. This is by far one of the best homes we've ever vacationed in and we're ready to reserve it again next year! I would recommend this home to anyone, it's perfect for couples or families since there is an apt downstairs. The entry to the Prospect Mountain trail is just steps away too!

Thank you Claire!

Just like home

  • 5 of 5
We love this house. This summer will be our third summer staying in the wonderful home and each year it feels like we are coming home. They always have everything you need for a great stay and each year they have added new upgrades to make your stay more enjoyable. I am glad to hear that there is now A/C in the basement as this was the only issue we have ever had. We have purchased land to build in Lake George but will continue to stay at this home until we build.
