About John Behan
We live in Saratoga Springs and have a landscape architecture, engineering and community planning consulting company called Behan Planning and Design. We love the outdoors including gardening, lacrosse, skiing, skating, biking, walking, and relaxing.
John Behan purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why John Behan chose Chestertown
We picked this site to build the Behan Cottage for its access to wonderful Loon Lake that offers both active boating and water sports as well as nice swimming and peaceful kayaking, loon watching, fishing, campfires at the beach, skiing at Gore Mountain and all out coziness.

Rental on Loon Lake
We had a great time in a beautiful surrounding. Our grandsons, ages 3 and 5, both stated, "I love this house!" It was a short walk to the lake and would like to have been closer to the water. Otherwise, it was a great house.
GREAT PLACE TO STAY
The owners were so helpful with all of my questions. The house was really clean. Plenty of room. We would stay there again that's how nice it was. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you would need.
Pleasant lake getaway (with dogs!)
We enjoyed our time together -- dogs, kids, grandparents, and us -- in a tranquil and happy setting. There was plenty of space for us all (including enough bathrooms!) and we appreciate the ability to bring the dogs. We hope to return in the winter.
Home away from home
Absolutely fabulous cottage. Located in a tucked away place just a minute's walk to the shared lake access. The Cottage is just beautiful, surprises found in every corner, more room than we needed. We has an incredible cozy warm feeling the moment we walked in.. we wanted for nothing John has every pot and pan you can imagine, wine glasses anything you can think you may need it's there don't bring it. The bathrooms were clean and we had plenty of towels. We can't wait to go back. I highly recommend this property for friends reconnecting, family reunions, ski weekends, summer weeks on the lake or just a get away from the hustle and craziness of your everyday... This place is so peaceful and relaxing. Rent it today!
Beautiful and welcoming home!
We spent a week last July with our family and our puppy. It felt like a home away from home. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed.Lots of space for all, a fully equipped kitchen, nice outdoor space for night time fires and smores. Enjoyed the screened in porch for early coffee quiet spot and late night outdoor space away from mosquitoes :-) Ping pong table was perfect for a rainy day tournament.Access to the lake easy across the street, perfect for a swim or boating.
We had a great time and will definitely be returning!
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review of the Behan Cottage. We are grateful to be able to share our property with you and your family--and puppy!

Very relaxing environment with trees surrounding the views out the windows.
Great house, very comfortable. Several bathrooms are a nice feature. Love the open floor plan for family gatherings.
Thanks for your nice response and your visit. We are happy you were able to enjoy the Behan Cottage.
