Wonderful Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We with 2 other couples came up from the city and stayed at this lovely and cozy home for a very relaxing weekend retreat last week. Everything was exactly as pictured - the deck overlooks the pristine lake, which made for very pleasant outdoor sitting. We made use of the canoe and the peddle boat which enabled us to really appreciate the gorgeous scenery. We will definately come back in the future! Thank you so much Alexis!

Everyone had an awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at the lake - the house was comfortable, clean (which is a big deal for me) and well stocked and had plenty of room for our large party (3 adults and 8 kids between the ages of 2 and 18). There was plenty to do for all between fishing off the dock, canoeing, heading to the small beach down the street and the pool. We took a day trip to Howes cavern which was pretty cool. Alexis is pleasant and responsive and helped us with any questions we had! We have vacationed as a group for the past 5 years and this one was unanimously voted our favorite vacation home!

We just came back from a fantastic 4-day stay at this lake house and immediately want to go BACK! Alexis was such a pleasure, always extremely courteous and responsive, and very helpful to us as we were organizing our visit. The house was spotless and exactly as described, so there were no shocks when we arrived. It was well stocked with everything one could possible need…from kitchenware to extra comforters and everything in between. The view from the deck is stunning, we really enjoyed grilling in the evenings and watching the beautiful sunset over the lake. The kids has a great time on the canoe and paddleboat. We preferred to walk over to the beach area for swimming, and that was only about a 3 minute stroll.

Our group was 10, a mix of all ages, and no one had any complaints. In fact, everyone wants to make this an annual trip – and at such a good value, I can’t see why not!

Alexis – you’ll definitely be hearing from us next summer! Thank you so much for all your help in making this a great getaway

Hi Alexis,

It was so good to hear from you this morning. Oh my goodness, did we EVER have a great time in your lovely home. It is just super in every way. We couldn't have had a better time this weekend and your home was so comfortable and just wonderful. You have taken the time and effort to be so completely accommodating and thorough tending to the comforts and needs of your rentors and it shows everywhere you look around the house. Fantastic job.

My daughter said, " Mom could we come back and rent this house every year and make this our yearly vacation spot".  My family fell in love with the lake, your home, and just having a wonderful place to make special memories.

We just loved the lake and the fall foliage was awesome too.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. The memories we made while there are so very special to us all.

My family stayed at the house for the last week in August, everything was wonderful and we had a great time.We boated and swan in the lake which the kids loved and Alexis couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you, this is a great place to stay.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a FABULOUS vacaton! Your house is incredible! Last year we went on a Disney Cruise,and the boys thought that this vacation ranked right up there with the cruise. We loved the lake and found that the photos of your house just did not capture its true beauty. It was the relaxing get-away that I needed. Thanks again!

We are located 2 hours from NYC across from the Hudson River. We are near shopping, an assortment of restaurants, deli's, fresh farm stands, antiques, golfing, fishing, bowling, movies, go-carts and skiing. 30 miles north is the capital, Albany. Saratoga, 1 hour and beautiful Lake George, 1 1/2 hours away.

There's also Howe Caverns and the famous family-oriented Zoom Flume water park, only a 30 minute drive.
