Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented many vacation homes, but this one is by far the best! Communication with owners was prompt and easy. The lake house itself is extremely clean and comfortable. We loved the kitchen with all the beautiful dishes and pots, pans, baking dishes - no junk here! Everything was in tip top shape. There is a huge pantry in the hall which was awesome! The layout of the house is so nice - very open and spacious. The front deck was great for a view of the lake and the back patio was perfect for a view of the woods and gardens. My granddaughter loved the picnic table at the top of the hill for tea parties with her grandfather! The beds were all very comfortable with nice linens. All of the furniture was lovely. The house is beautifully decorated.

The lake was fantastic! My 7-year old granddaughter had the time of her life on the slide and swimming to the raft. The beach is shallow with a quick drop off but we made her wear her life jacket at all times just to be safe. The house comes with a huge variety of float toys which we made ample use of! There is also a canoe which was great for us. We didn't get a chance to try the kayaks as we couldn't leave our granddaughter alone but they looked great. No worries about the road being between the house and lake - the traffic is light so not a problem at all. There is a huge and lovely deck and dock area to sun bathe in between swims.

We took our granddaughter to Circle B ranch for her first trail ride. The people there are awesome! Also, a trip into Lake George village is less than a half hour away for the one rainy day we had.

I really can't say enough good things about this beautiful home. I hated leaving and hope to come back again!

Peaceful Loon Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at the Loony Bin ! Beautiful location, and the house was comfortable , clean , and well stocked. Very peaceful and quiet, despite the road. (we hardly noticed any traffic going by.) The lake is very clean, and great for swimming and fishing.Joe and Melinda were awesome, and when a minor, unforeseeable issue arose, they took care of it immediately, and they were great about keeping me in the loop. I enjoyed touring the high peaks, and went to Whiteface's summit, which was majestic. Forts William Henry, and Ticonderoga were very cool. It was a great week and I did not want to leave.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

A lot of places online never seem to live up to the description on the site, this place is not one of them. You will not be disappointed. My brother and I rented the house with our college aged kids and had a blast. The place was clean, well stocked with plenty of amenities, and spacious for eight adults. This is the perfect place to either just sit and enjoy the view or go sight seeing with the interstate 10 minutes away. Last but not least the owners were friendly and pleasant to do business with. I would rent this place again.

Pleasant Surprise

  • 5 of 5

We travel a lot upstate NY. A lot of times the places are not quite as described on the website. The Loonie Bin was absolutely a great place. Very Clean and all the things we needed to have a comfortable stay. Fishing off the dock was good early in the AM. We had deer every am and pm behind the house. Hummingbirds feeding and Loons calling. Great places to eat in the area. Gore Mt , Lake George and Bolton Landing. You cant beat the price for a 1 week stay. We have never stayed in one place twice. We may stay here again next year. I highly recommend this house to everyone. Ken

Phenomenal Week At The Looney Bin!

  • 5 of 5

Just an amazing house. We've been going to Loon Lake for 25 years, staying at several different cottages / houses, etc over the years and this house is by far the best place we've stayed, with all the amenities, size, cleanliness, views, etc. First off the location is the best on the lake where it opens up, the views are incredible. The deck on the lake has a slide into the lake, a floating dock, dock slip, some sand, a fire pit with wood, tables, chairs, electricity, nice landscaping, and a row boat and canoe. Its amazing. The garage has a ton of floats, a tube for tubing, all fishing poles and fishing supplies. The house has literally everything you could possibly need, even doubles and triples of it. Don't bring anything but food and drinks. The back has a grill, huge patio, another fire pit, another supply of wood, tables, etc. We partied there every night. The beds are comfortable, house spotless, everything you can think of, they've thought of it. Good wifi too! It really is impressive. We hope to make this an annual trip now.

Owner's Response: Good Morning Janet, We are so pleased you were very happy with our home. We take pride in our home. By the way, if there is someone in your group that caught a nice fish, and you have a picture, and would like to go on the wall of fame. We would be happy to frame it and hang it in the dinning room, with the other fisher people. If you want there name on it, let me know. We hope you come back again, Thank You, Joe and Melinda
