My husband and I, along with our dog, had a wonderful time. The house is modern, full of light, has great views from almost every room, and has everything you need for the stay (including those little things which you never are sure will be there but don't necessarily want to bother the owner asking about like dishwashing fluid, cooking spices, silver foil, garbage bags, etc). The property itself is situated on a bay, with no immediate neighbors that you can see as you gaze out at the lake. The lake near the shore has a sandy bottom and is calm, clear and quite shallow, which is really nice if you just like to wade in the water. While we did see a few motorboats during the labor day weekend, none of them came near the bay, and during the week the lake was very quiet. The location is a bit away from it all--make sure you bring lots of food unless you want to either drive to Pittsfield (30 min) to a grocery store, or Dannemora (15 min) to a convenience station. If you like to keep active and not just sit by the lake, I also suggest planning out some trips ahead of time (the owner had some great maps of the Adirondacks, but no other information for nearby activities or specific hikes/trailheads). I would especially recommend a hike up to Silver Lake Mountain (only 2 miles RT, but we sure got winded and had to thread slowly among the rocks), along with more gentle hikes to Silver Lake Bog and Bluffs [both about 35 min south, you can find details online]. Point Au Roche State Park (about 45 min NE) is also quite nice, with many forested trails along with great views of Lake Champlain. While we didn't take advantage of them, there are also several ferries between NY and VT, which is a nice, inexpensive way to take in Lake Champlain. I would highly recommend this property!
