Lake House retreat!

  • 5 of 5
One of the best vacations we have had! A wonderful home on a quiet lake. Canoeing, fishing and paddling boating right outside your door. Two great docks...one on the edge of the property and one in the middle of the lake. My kids (and adults) really enjoyed that. The boat launch is 5 minutes around the corner to tube, fish or sight see. Sacandaga Lake is amazing. Lots of history......

The town of Northville is very quaint, friendly and has anything you need. We wished we could have stayed longer and hope to be back there soon. My children...12, 11 and 8 LOVED IT...as did out dogs and family and friends that visited. What a special place. Memories were made.....Stephanie Cox

Great house by the lake!

  • 5 of 5
This home was great from the big family room to the large deck and all the amazing lakefront. My entire family enjoyed swimming fishing and just relaxing by the fire pit and on the deck! We would defiantly come here again!

Perfect Family Reunion Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
I rented the house for a family reunion. We had 14 people stay at the house and it was more than ideal for the size of our party. There was plenty of bedroom space for us all and the 2 bathrooms were more than adequate. The kitchen had plenty of space for food preparation and clean-up. The family room and sun porch provided enough room for us one rainy afternoon. Now on to the best part of the property - the outside space. The deck and yard provided plenty of space for us to gather, relax and eat. The stone fire pit provided us with a great spot to enjoy a fire, the lake, and even fireworks that the village hosted 1 night during our stay. The kids spent hours playing on the beach, fishing off of the dock, swimming, and enjoying the canoe.
The week of our stay was hot in town, however the cool breeze from the lake provided very comfortable sleeping weather. My best memory of the house was one morning my sister and I were sitting on the deck enjoying the morning and we watched a beaver swim the lake and work on his den across the lake from the house.
I can not say enough positive things about the house and property. We are currently working on plans for next summer using this house for our next family reunion.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this cabin for a week. My whole family loved it.
The house was roomy, we could have housed a whole other family!
The location is perfect, we walked up to the quaint town every day for coffee and/or
ice cream. They had a concert on Saturday night and a farmer's market on Tuesday. Our dogs loved swimming and chasing ducks! Even my electronically addicted children didn't want to leave!
We are already planning our trip for next year. We believe we have found our family vacation spot!

VERY Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
First, the good. It is a peaceful location waterfront location. That's it.

Now the BAD. NOT, a lake front location (as advertised) as the property is on bit of backwater that you CANNOT get to the lake via the water. So, it is on the water, but not on the lake. When we arrived, the advertised paddle boat was inoperable, and since that item has been removed from their ad. The canoe came with two paddles, one of which the blade was split and most likely would strand you up the creek in a proverbial way (if not for the fact there is no were really to paddle). The full equipped kitchen includes a NON working dish washer. Apparently, non working dishwashers are standard in a fully equipped kitchen. Boy were we surprised to find out how outdated our kitchen really is - our dishwasher works! The living room includes the one reclining chair, which is broken and I would advise not using as I'm sure its dangerous. The screened in porch also included busted chairs. The stream that is alleged to have bordered the porch was non existent during our stay. It must be a seasonal thing. Bring your own towels as those that were provided were ratty, and I would only use them for washing the car. The second dock was not out in the water, but tied to the bank in such a way as it was useless. During the middle of every other week, the recycling must be taken up to the main road by YOU, so if you enjoy taking out other people's trash, and paying someone for that privilege, this is the place for you. The little sandy beach is actually smaller that it appears in the picture as much of the sand has washed into the water. Oh, and speaking of water, the shower and sink in the downstairs bath were leaking GREAT amounts of hot water. If that's the kind of thing you enjoy, there again, you'll love this place. All in all, if I had known before what I know now, I would not have rented this place at any price. Look around, there are many great places in Northville and surrounding area. This is not one of them.

Owner's Response: We would like to begin our response to this review by saying it is from a renter who caused damage to our property and is very unhappy and bitter that we have had to keep a portion of their security deposit to make a repair because of a slider they broke. I have been getting email after email asking for their deposit back after explaining the reason that it cannot be returned in full. They do not deny they caused the damage, yet they continue to badger us. One of the group has written to us saying that had they gotten their deposit back they would not have sent in this review. This review is loaded with inaccuracies and is very unfair to us. It is a shame that it is allowed to be published , but HomeAway does not discriminate and publishes all reviews.
Our property is on the Northville (Hunter) Lake, and is a beautiful lake in it’s own right. It is a lovely, peaceful lake where no large motors are allowed. Kayaking canoeing, swimming, great fishing and more, are all enjoyed here. It is not for those who wish to jet ski, motorboat, etc. We are proud of our property and take care to maintain it and all the things provided for our guests, including each and every one of the things the renter mentions here. These numerous complaints this renter has made are not factual .
On the rare occasion something has gone wrong with a plumbing issue, we have had a plumber there asap.
There is a brand new dock on the property this year, built by a fine local co. who specializes in docks. The older dock this renter mentions was pulled onto another spot on the shore. It has been promised to someone and therefore is still there - not in anyone’s way whatsoever.
The stream the renter mentions is spring fed and has provided much enjoyment for everyone. It sometimes runs fast, sometimes slower, but is always there. The drought in many areas this summer would be the reason for this stream to not be flowing consistently.
This renter has decided to use our site to try to make us look bad in every way possible. We hope future guests will take into consideration the reviews others have written here. We hope our pictures and good reputation to date will speak louder than these words from one disgruntled renter.

Quiet House on Lake

  • 5 of 5
Great house on a small lake next to a stream. If you looking for privacy and peace – this is your place. The house can easily accommodate two families and we had visitors too. Our dog loved it. We walked to town – great coffee shop, antique barn and every thing else we needed
