Perfect vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we needed. Our large, extended family were camping at Northampton and staying in a house together nearby, so it was great to have our own retreat to relax in the morning and at night. We would walk, boat, or swim to visit with family. The cottage had everything we needed, and was very comfortable and peaceful. Despite the fact that it is next door to the marina and a restaurant with live music, we never had problems with noise, even on the weekends, and even with the windows open for fresh air. The week was very warm, but the shaded location of the house kept the house cool.

Be sure to check out the new general store right up the street. They make their own doughnuts every morning, which were excellent. We also enjoyed going by boat to the Sport Island Pub, which was very good, and we also enjoyed Cristiano's pizza. Of course, having the grill and kitchen in the house also made it easy to put together meals at home.

Our girls (ages 12 and 14) enjoyed the upstairs. One claimed the loft, and the other the bedroom, and they enjoyed having their own space. Not that we spent a lot of time in the cottage staring at our phones or laptop, but having strong wifi was great. Thanks again for a great week.

Week at the Great Sacandoga Lake

  • 4 of 5

This camp was completely set up for us to arrive, move in and enjoy the area. The camp was very clean and well stocked with necessities. We had a wonderful stay. The campfires at nite were especially enjoyable. We were able go to the each at the Northhampton campground to swim and lounge in the sun! Hope to be back next year.

Comfortable, cozy cottage - a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 3 children really enjoyed our stay at your cozy cottage on the Great Sacandaga Lake! We spent lots of time canoeing and kayaking around the islands on the other side of Northhampton campsite. The evenings at the cabin were spent playing mini golf, watching the boats on the lake, and sitting by the fire roasting marshmallows. We are making it a tradition to come back every year because we enjoyed ourselves so much. The cabin was very clean and had a rustic charm that fit into the Adirondack setting. The kids thank you for providing games and puzzles that we all enjoyed. I was happy to have a washer and dryer so I did not need to go home and do laundry! My son caught his very first fish on the dock. Thanks for providing family memories that will last a lifetime.

Beautiful lakefront cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation home! The cottage at the lake is absolutely charming! So clean and nicely decorated. We loved the wood ceilings and the hardwood floors. We brought my Mom with us and the first thing she said as she walked through the front door was "Can I live here forever?" Your beds were extremely comfortable and we absolutely loved the fact that you had a washer and dryer. The loft area is perfect for a teen, as ours claimed it for himself! Our daughter was so happy with the wifi, as she was able to keep in touch with their friends. We loved jumping off the dock and were even happier when our son caught a bass! Of course, we released it back into the Great Sacandaga Lake, but we made sure to take pictures before! The folks on the Hunky Dory were extremely nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Jay's Lakeside. The food was excellent (this coming from us downstate NYers who work in NYC). We felt so at home and thank you very much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful lakefront cottage! We look forward to going back and making more memories to last a lifetime.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. We have traveled all over the northeast and stayed in many different places. We tried to incorporate things we liked about each of the places we stayed at into our own cottage to give it a cozy Adirondack feel. We very much look forward to your return and being a part of your family's vacation memories!

Romantic Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely cabin on Sacandaga Lake!

It had all the comforts of home including a gas grill, washer & dryer, fireplace - inside and out and much more! It is decorated with a cozy Adirondack look that added to a very romantic weekend.

We will be bringing the kids back next time. There is a large yard to play in...a dock to fish off of...a miniature golf course right down the road...a marina near by with boat rentals...even a public beach and picnic area!

I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone...a couple or a family.

It was wonderful!

Kudos to the owners. We had a great time! : )
