About Dorothy

I am a teacher and my husband works for a municipality and we LOVE coming home to the lake. We moved here permanently in 2011.

Dorothy purchased this house in 2006

Why Dorothy chose Mayfield

For us, this property represents memories, family bonding, fun, relaxation and peace by the water. Memories of summers spent in Sacandaga Park, helping with the family business and fishing, boating and swimming on Sacandaga Lake were the strongest draws. Spending time with our family and friends, creating more lasting memories here is reason enough to stay.

What makes this house unique

The house is perfect for entertaining family and friends with plenty of space inside and out. The dining room seats 10 adults comfortably. The wrap around porch is great for relaxing and the large deck with gas grill and picnic tables faces the lake. The picnic area directly on the lake has a gas grill, horse shoe pit and fire pit. If you are a morning person, coffee on the dock, watching the sunrise and listening to the loons is the best! The property is private and peaceful.

Wonderful family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the house, and appreciated Dorothy and Russ' hospitality. The house was very well kept, clean, had everything we needed, and was plenty spacious enough for our party of ten. The outdoor space provided ample room for backyard games, and the kids enjoyed jumping off the dock and swimming in the lake. We would definitely rent the house again for future family vacations!

Excellent location and home

  • 4 of 5

This was an ideal home for our family of 6. We spent 75% of our time on the lovely dock and in the kayaks and sailboat. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed grilling out most dinners. The outdoor eating area and number of rooms gave us space to relax and still spend family time together. The home was spotless and Dorothy and her husband were more than helpful.

Great house and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was top of the line. Very comfortable and clean house. Also, the location right on the lake could not have been better. The Nowhitneys were wonderful hosts, extra friendly and accomodating. Would recommend this vacation rental to anyone. We'll be back!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, well-maintained, clean home. Plenty of space, beds were good, and i was very happy that linens and towels were included. That is a very rare amenity. The property is safe...far enough off the road (very FEW vehicles passing by) and from the lake so that children have room to play without worries. The lake is great for beginner and advanced swimmers. You can either walk in or dive off the dock. We made much use of the outdoor firepit, which is basically lakeside. Stores were just a few of miles away, and a convenience store and doughnuts at a gas station was only about a 6 minute drive. The bait and tackle store was just up the road, and it also has cheap firewood.

We would like to thank the Nowhitney family for sharing their lovely home. It was a pleasure to be in such a pretty place. You care about your property, and it shows. It was a pleasure to meet you. I hope all your future renters appreciate and respect your property.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

When my family arrived at this lakefront home we immediately all looked at each other and smiled. This clean,well-maintained home welcomes you and will definitely invite you back. We enjoyed all the amenities, and had the best of family times taking the few steps to the lake, fishing and boating and watching our 18 month old granson throw rocks in the lake with such joy. A wonderful meal at Lanzi's Lakefront Restaurant was enjoyed by all, but most nights had fun grilling and cooking in the well equipped kitchen.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the week after Christmas in 2008. The house was a perfect fit for the five adults and two small children in our party. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen had all the pots, pans and utensils we needed to cook and eat our meals. The refrigerator was a good size and the dishwasher made the after meal clean up easy. The temperature outside at one point was just above zero but the house stayed toasty warm. We were pleased that the water for showers wasn't affected by the very cold weather. The wall of windows let us watch the snow while we enjoyed each other's company. This was a great house for our stay in the snowy north.
