About Mike Belanger

hello guest,

Welcome, and thanks for considering our second home. We live 1 hour south. Since a small child, we always enjoyed a day or week at Lake George. The clean water of the lake will amaze you, as it has to us. You will find that Bolton Landing is the best spot on the whole lake.

Mike Belanger purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Mike Belanger chose Lake George Area

Our family of five fell in love with the wrap around porch and the eastern view of the lake and mountains. We put a lot of sweat into renovating the house. This is our second home. Please enjoy and respect it.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We made sure this house has everything you need to enjoy your time here. If the sun is shining, enjoy the horse shoes or a vollyball game. If raining, light a fire and read a book, or a board game. We also have pin pong in the garage.

Perfect place for family and dogs.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time just relaxing by using all the rocking chairs. We used the free Huddle Bay beach to launch our kayaks. Plenty of room to play with the dogs and they loved the creek. Enjoyed the outside fire-pit a few times. Bolton Landing is such a cute town. Took the "Mohican" boat ride from Bolton Landing. The maps at the Lake George Conservancy kiosk was fully stocked so we could pick the perfect hike. House was clean and WiFi/TV was great. Mike was very timely in responding to my questions.

Nice farmhouse with character and charm

  • 4 of 5

A great place to relax and enjoy the amenities of the farmhouse and the neighboring lake activities. The farmhouse has a great wrap around porch and spacious yard great for kids and pets to play. There is horseshoes, ping pong table , and barbeque, etc The first floor is surprisingly large and includes a semi modern kitchen, large modern bath with washer /dryer area, dining area, living room with large TV, and a large master bedroom also with a TV . There are two bedrooms on the second floor which are most suitable for young children due to size , storage space, and dated three piece bathroom. Window A/C unit can cool the entire house on hot days .Overall , it is a nice place for a vacation getaway most suitable for families with small children,and pet owners.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week here at the farmhouse. It truly lived up to our expectations. Our 3 children, ages 2, 7, and 9 were very comfortable in the upstairs bedrooms while mom and dad had peace and quiet in the evenings downstairs. Plenty of space to run around, play catch and of course make s'mores. The house was clean, held all amenities necessary, and nicely decorated. TV and WiFi always a good plus. Would recommend to anyone!

Fourth of July Fun

  • 5 of 5

We rented Mike's house Fourth of July and had a wonderful time. We go to Lake George for our family reunion every few years and this time around it was a memorable trip like always. We enjoyed the fireworks in town and all the shops around. For my daughters birthday, we went to her favorite restaurant the Boathouse and enjoyed going to wine tastings throughout the week. At night we came home to play board and card games so we could enjoy our vacation with our dogs as well. Wonderful trip and a great home to stay in.

Lake George! Known as one of the premier vacation spots in the northeast, Lake George has delighted generations of visitors who came to enjoy the mountains and the sparkling waters of the lake. Today's visitors come to Lake George for much the same reasons, but today have a myriad of choices on how to spend their vacations at the lake. Lake George is located in the Adirondack Mountains of NY, the lake is 32 miles long and dotted with about 175 islands, most of which are owned by New York State. This allows the visitor excellent Lake George island camping and picnicking opportunities.

Golf: Sagamore Golf Course, a great 18 hole is about 4 miles away.

From their website:

Honored by Golf Magazine as one of its Silver Medal Resorts, this beautiful hillside course overlooks Lake George and was designed and built under Donald Ross's personal supervision in 1928. As part of a $75 million restoration in 1985, the legendary course was fully restored according to Ross's original blueprints.

In classic Ross fashion, The Sagamore's golf course uses the natural environment to give each hole its challenge and beauty. The holes are routed naturally through an upland meadow and the Adirondack woods, where white birches enliven the evergreen forest. To add an accent to the rolling mountainside terrain, Ross planted heather from his own native Scotland within the meadow. Lush fairways are narrow and lined with hardwoods, while deep bunkers surround undulating greens. From the elevated first tee, you have a breathtaking view of Lake George and the Adirondack peaks.

Golf Digest rated this course as the '5th Best Public Course in New York State.' In addition, Corporate and Incentive Travel gave it a 'Greens of Distinction' award and Condé Nast named it a top U.S. resort course.
