Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath waterfront saltbox on a small, quiet lake in upstate NY (not on Lake George), 3 mi. from the VT border, 35 miles from Lake George village, with a screened in porch. Open floor plan, private home, available year round. Enjoy a good book on our deck while the setting sun reflects onto the water. In the fall, the foliage mirrors onto the lake; in the winter, the woodstove keeps you cozy and warms you up when you come in from skating or x/c skiing. Our leather sectional is a great place to watch a movie at the end of your day, or read a book as your kids work on a puzzle on our large coffee table. Enjoy the private lake on our canoe, kayak,paddle boat, or our newest addition, a stand-up paddleboard. It's a great family vacation, that can include your well mannered family dog, if you just can't bear to leave him behind. Our master bedroom with a plush, king-size bed and main bath area are downstairs, with two additional bedrooms and another bath upstairs, making it easy to share with another couple or family, while still having privacy. You can chill out and enjoy the peaceful setting, or when you're re-energized and ready to explore, Lake George Village is just over a half hour away, with large Riverboats to tour the lake, restaurants and shopping. Manchester, VT is a Designer Outlet mecca, or take a day trip to charming VT towns like Middlebury, Ludlow, Brattleboro, or everyone's favorite, Burlington. There's great Horseback riding and a seasonal rodeo at Pond Hill Ranch just 20 minutes away, and the home of Green Mountain College (Poultney, VT) has a rail trail for hiking, dog-walking, biking, x/c skiing or snowshoeing, just 10 minutes away. Sorry, we cannot accommodate last minute requests; two week minimum advance notice.

We love our times here at the lake, but can only enjoy it occasionally. We'd love to find people that will be able to come up and enjoy this little slice of paradise, instead of having it sit empty, waiting for our next visit. We are empty nesters, until the kids and grandkids all come back to visit, so we're always on the go. When we're not working at our IT desk jobs, we love biking, boating, x/c skiing, kayaking, and just about anything outdoors. We go every other year to Europe on a bike and boat adventure; that's our favorite way to combine our love of boating and the water, along with biking.
We wanted to find a lake that was peaceful and not crowded with everyone on top of each other. Compared to other properties we looked at, this one couldn't be beat.
We love that we can enjoy it year round. My husband is a swimmer, so once the water warms up, he swims from one end to the other every day we're at the lake. In the winter, our grandkids come up and tube down our hillside onto the frozen lake, and we skate, snowshoe and x/c ski. In the fall, the views of the foliage are great, as well as the hiking at Haystack Mountain just 25 minutes away.
