Simply breathtaking! Best place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we rented this log cabin. The first time we rented it was 2 years ago for my husband's 50th birthday in the fall and this time for my 50th birthday. We could not have picked a better place for such important events/milestones in our life. You cannot beat the location of this log cabin. It is right in the middle of the village where there are endless things to enjoy for all ages 1-100 !

I truly thank the owner for opening their amazing home so that we all can experience the breathtaking views Lake George has to offer.

I truly cannot say enough good things about this home. It is very clean, rustic but with modern amenities. It is just PERFECT!

best vacation spot ever

  • 5 of 5

3 generation family vacation something for everyone.The views were outstanding. Cabin was just as described beautiful and everything you could dream of. The weather was wonderful and the lake was clear and warm. We has a great dock to dive off as well as put kyack into lake. Fished every day and great catches. Fire pit fire with s'mores after cookin on gas grill almost every night. The best view for fireworks. Our lab love this almost as much as grand son. We were close to walk to everything but felt we were alone in our own world. The owner was a great hostess,can't forget the great pastries for our first day snacks. This is a great place and wonderful vacation area.

Cozy comfort on Lake George

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband and I and his 2 sisters along with our pup, Sophie) spent a glorious Columbus Day weekend at this beautiful log cabin on Lake George. The weather was perfect but had it not been, we still would have loved this place. The accommodations are very inviting and modern despite the authenticity of the log cabin. It is tastefully decorated and everything is supplied so that once you store your clothes and groceries, there would be no need to leave. We ate almost all of our meals "at home." We talked about dinner out but didn't want to miss the comfort of the cabin or the wonderful views of the lake. Lake George Village with its shops and restaurants is just steps away yet the cabin feels remote.

Patricia, the owner, lives just next door and was very helpful but also unobtrusive - a perfect VRBO hostess! She left us delicious pastries and was a wealth of local knowledge. We particularly appreciated her suggestion for a local butcher. We opted for steaks on the grill one night. They were perfectly cut to our specifications and were so tender.

We spent lots of time on the deck overlooking the water - chatting, reading, soaking up the warm sun and listening to the occasional calliope serenade from a passing tour boat. We were there at the peak of the fall colors and the well-tended grounds were lovely. All-in-all, perfect!

The business of the rental was seamless. Patricia was very responsive - even though her daughter was in labor when I first contacted her! Her directions to the cabin and her notes on site were spot on and her return of our deposit was very timely.

We are still talking about this wonderful place!

Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a vacation that has it all, then look no further!!!!

Once you pull up into the driveway of this magnificent log cabin situated right on the lake; you will know that you made the right decision. If you thought the views right from the property of Lake George and beautiful mountains took your breath away.........wait until you walk into this beautiful rustic log cabin. If you are like everyone from my family who walked through the lakeside door; you will find yourself picking your jaw up from the floor!

From the minute you walk through the front door, you can feel the love that the owners put into this jewel on the lake. The home is spotless and meticulously cared for. The pictures on this website does not do the home justice.

Absolutely amazing!

Oh did I leave out swimming off a private dock footsteps from the back door that provides you with the best view of the firework shows on the Lake?

The cabin is walking distance to all the stores and amenities that the Village of Lake George has to offer. This includes but not limited to: boating, fishing, power-sailing, kayaking, tubing, great food at the Boardwalk Restaurant, and the historic Lake George Steam Boat rides......plus so much more!!!!

I spent so much time expressing our love for the home and great vacation spot, I almost left out one of the most important parts of the entire experience; the homeowner Patricia Dow. From the minute she greets you to the minute you leave this remarkable home, she is a wonderful, kind, and a most gracious host!

From bringing pastries from the local bakery to making sure that you have everything you need to enjoy your stay...her calm soothing demeanor makes you feel like you have known her for years.....

I have never taken the time to write a review about a vacation but this was one that was more than deserving of a few minutes so you don't miss out on a trip you won't be disappointed by. I am just not sure that words alone can truly explain this majestic location.

I do know this much.....my family has found our vacation spot for years to come!

Best Location on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation we ever had taken. We stayed at this fantastic cabin for one week with six adults and one child. We were comfortable and had plenty of room. We also had three cars.

This place has it ALL! Cabin, dock, sand lake bottom, fire pit, views, located in town (although you would never know it), and what feels like your own personal fireworks show (on Thursday nights, in season). We even had a box of pastries from a local bakery in our fridge, courtesy of the owner, when we arrived.

Even though the cabin is a two minute walk to Canada Street, we never heard any traffic or pedestrian noise. We barbequed two nights, made a lasagna another night and walked into town for dinner on the other nights. We rented a pontoon boat for the week from Chic’s Marina (in Bolton Landing), and docked it for the week in front of the cabin.

Every day we went fishing, boating, snorkeling. Every night we would take a walk to town and come back and have a fire in the fire pit. One day we got adventurous and hiked Tongue Mountain to the 5th peak lean-to for a breathtaking view of the lake.

The best part of the trip was watching our grandson. He went from being hesitant about going into the lake, to becoming a snorkeler, to doing a running jump off the pontoon boat.

If you are looking to rent a place at Lake George, THIS IS IT!!!
