Guestbook comments from the manager

Wendy was very communicative, providing all the information, and available for any additional inquiries. The house was perfect for our family. There was so much attention given to every little detailed. We felt instantly at home! We would definitely love to go back and highly recommend it to anyone seeking serenity.

Awesome Cozy Cottage by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! The listing was spot on and the place was so easy to find. It's a short walk to the lake but the best thing is you can view the lake right from the cottage from the windows or you can sit out on the large deck as well. The back yard has a nice little firepit to enjoy in the evenings while you take in those beautiful summer nights.

Everything is well maintained and very clean. If you have any issues all you have to do is call the owner and she is just a phone call away and is very accommodating.

It's a perfect cottage for families with the various bedrooms and bathrooms and the various items they have available for activities.

This was my third time at the cottage and everytime I've been there I enjoyed my stay. It's a perfect 'home away from home'.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. I have plans to return there again myself.

A great week!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great find! We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation on Lake Luzerne. The house was just as it was pictured and described. Wendy was very hospitable and accommodating. She came right away when I had to call her about a couple of things. The place was very clean and well kept. The kitchen itself was small, but all 9 of us were able to function by using the kitchen table as a work space. We kept most of our dry foods in the plastic bins that we brought them in. There was plenty of extra space in the dining room and living room (just off the kitchen) so everything was very accessible and also easier to pack up when we left. We ended up purchasing some foil pans, which worked fine, since the kitchen itself did not have exactly what we needed for a few meals. Therefore, if you need any special type of pans, you may want to do the same or bring your own. Otherwise, we had plenty of dishes, silverware, pots, etc. for our cooking needs.

The canoe and kayaks were great! Access to the lake and beach was just down the hill. A hose was outside the porch so we could spray off before entering the house.

The internet service was great. My one son had to work remotely for a couple of days while there and there were no gliches. We found cell phone service spotty as Wendy had said, but outside the house we were good to use our phones (we have a combination of verizon and AT & T).

Shopping and other available activities were close by. We went mini-golfing, played laser tag, used go carts, saw fireworks on Lake George, went out to eat, saw a movie in the theater and at home. A great place to vacation!

Wonderful week !

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at this house. The location was spectacular and the house was exceptionally clean. The canoe and 2 kayaks were a fun addition especially for my grandchildren. Fishing was a nice surprise with plenty of bass and pickerel just across from our beach. We also enjoyed the music from the camp across the lake. Would definitely come back.

Lake side fun

  • 5 of 5

Recently home from our long weekend stay at this rental. It was two families consisting of 4 adults and 4 kids. There was more than enough room for everyone comfortably. We had such a great time! It was a lovely home with many nice touches including a video library and a fully stocked kitchen with all the cookware and amenities you could think of. The deck looks onto the lake and in my opinion is the best location off pierpont. Between the kayaking, cooking and hanging out by the fire it was the perfectly relaxing vacation our families needed. Much better then those amusement park vacations where you wait in line for hours. We will definitely be back and Wendy was a gracious hostess. Thanks
