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.

Surely the best hands down
This was our 6 annual xc ski trip. We first booked this house in 2013, we tried some different houses subsequent years, but glad Dorothy and Russ put it back on the market for winter vacations. This house totally tops the rest. Thank you for your pure class hospitality.
We are so happy to have you back as our guests! We truly appreciate your care and respect for our home during your stay and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Had a great time! Property was awesome!
Beautiful house and thoughtful hospitality
Our group stayed at the lake house for three nights earlier this month, and it proved the perfect option for a winter getaway from the city. It was absolutely spotless, and the owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome from the minute we got there. From the snacks that were waiting in the kitchen, to the crib that was installed in one of the rooms ahead of our arrival, to Dorothy's offer to compile and share local info for family-friendly activities, we felt taken care of as if we were their friends. I have rented many properties on VRBO/HomeAway over the years, but never seen owners go to such great lengths to accommodate their guests. Once we were there, they were very easy to reach, very responsive with any question, but extremely discreet.
The house itself is perfectly stocked with everything you need, large enough to accommodate 10 people but cozy enough that everyone can find their own space. The views on the lake can't be beaten, and the owners were kind enough to lend us a baby sled on our last day - we took our little boy for a spin on the frozen lake and he loved it!
Our group enjoyed snow-shoeing at the Lapland Nordic Centre (just about 20 min from the house) and quick day trips to Saratoga (50 min).
All in all, perfect location and stay, and we highly recommend. Thank you Dorothy and Russ for your hospitality!
My friends and I recently stayed here for a winter getaway. It was an amazing weekend! The home is beautifully furnished with a huge kitchen. When not outside by the perfect lakefront (ice) location we spent most of our time sitting around the huge kitchen island. The owners were very accommodating as well. We were even greeted upon our arrival with a bowl of all the ingredients we needed to make a fresh bowl of guacamole! Definitely coming back next year
Thanks, guys! You were great guests and it was wonderful to know you took full advantage of all the house and lake property have to offer. Hope to see you next year!
Wonderful family retreat!
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!
Thank you, Roger and family, for being thoughtful, respectful guests in our home. You and your family are welcome in our home!
Excellent location and home
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.
Karen, Mike and family,
Thank you for being thoughtful, respectful guests in our home. You are always welcome.
