We simply had such a great time as a family staying for more than a week in Lorrie & Rick Lake Cottage in August.
The cottage was very clean (at arrival and during) and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were good and we figured out the benefits of air-conditioning when it is over 90F outside . We really appreciated the local goodies in the fridge for breakfast as well as the outdoor activities in the front of the cottage (kayak, bikes, fire-place).
We could even swim in the lake due to the high temperature. We were introduced to the S'mores with a real dark sky with plenty of stars... Jogging around the lake (2,8miles) was a good and probably necessary exercise to stay in good shape.
Lorrie and Rick are amazing hosts: they are at the same time available and "invisible"; they can provide really good tips and activities such as the Owe's Cavern. The main house is also amazing: we noticed all the work, time and 'love' that Lorrie & Rick invested in their home.
In case you feel hungry, the small grocery around the corner can provide with pizzas and wings, as well as fresh beer.
The situation allows to get to Lake George in about 90min, Saratoga Springs in 60min and NYC in less than 3hours.
The pictures are actual: this is really it.
It was great to take our breakfast/lunch or dinner in front of the house, or just above the lake. The kids were amazed of the scenery every single day. There is almost no traffic.
Last but not least: yes, there is WiFi and Sat-TV ... but do you go in such an amazing and relaxing place to watch a screen for hours?
In short, we highlz recommend this place but please don't say it too loud... or we might face overbooking and we won't be able to book when we come back next time.
To Lorrie & Rick: we thank you for making our "NY Up State" visit such a amazing time. We hope the little cat found his way back home in great shape. Take care and we wish you all the best!
