Gorgeous Home!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't of asked for a better vacation! This home comfortably fit our large group. We spent our days enjoying the large deck, yard, and beach/dock area. We all enjoyed floating down the river on our floats and in canoes! We took full advantage of the well equipped kitchen and grill area as well!

Niki and Bill were very accommodating! We had a little flooding during our stay and Bill was over within the hour to clean and fix it right up.

Thank you for opening your home to us! We had an amazing time!

Right out of a magazine!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The pictures are beautiful, but it is even better in real life.

The house had everything we needed and was very well outfitted with every amenity from the kitchen to the bedrooms to the outdoors.

We enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen, sitting in the hot tub, sitting around roasting marshmallows in the campfire pit and canoeing down the Scroon River.

The location was ideal also. It was close to town, grocery store, gas station and restaurants as well as the Lake George Village for more sightseeing and activities.

Nicole and Bill were very accommodating and quick to respond to all questions and needs. This is definitely a location we will come back to!

The house was beautiful, and the river was very peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. We hosted family and friends for my wife's birthday, and the home worked out perfectly. The property was stocked with ample dish wear, towels, chairs etc. to accommodate our group of 11. The close proximity to the village was a bonus. We found that kayaking in the river was very peaceful even though we were close to town. We still felt a bit isolated on our retreat, which was welcoming. I spoke to the owner the morning that we were leaving and notified him of a couple minor issues. He was very receptive, and was getting to work on them immediately. It is difficult to stay on top of maintenance when people are using the property, and have different levels of respect for that property. In all, I fell that the owners are proud of the property and make every effort to keep it well maintained. The only issue that we found, was that the floors creak when walking on the second floor. It may annoy some, but we found it part of the charm of a heavy timber building.

We enjoyed the area, and the home. It was a great five day getaway for our group.

Absolutely Perfect, Peaceful and Beautiful !!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this Adirondack Getaway, this stay was as perfect as the first. If you see this rental from the roadside, you will think it is typical, but, wait for it... from then on, inside and out it is amazing.

Our group was 8 people this year, but the first time was ten people. It has everything we needed for this group and more. Huge table on the deck where we can all sit together and the same in the dining area, plus another dining table. Living room is big & beautiful too. The kitchen has everything you would need. We tend to relax and stay for meals. There is a counter with stools facing the kitchen work area, great for people who get to sit and read the recipe and direct "her people" in making it.

The downstairs room again has plenty of couches and a bar area to hang out in to. Perfect for our oldies sing along. The bedrooms are awesome!

The floors do creak, and if you are in the downstairs bedroom, you will hear noise from the bedroom above. I used that as my wake up call, if the person up there was getting up, I heard it and knew it was time for me to get up.

It was very clean, Nikki and her husband are very nice and respond quickly to anything wrong. The air conditioner had been having problems the morning we were to check in, and they had it up and running by the time we got there. Outside dining chairs had been damaged before we got there and they replaced them all for our stay. Absolutely would recommend this rental.

Half of us stayed put, others did go shopping. Oscars for smoked meats and such is a must visit. We grilled up some of the burgers and went back for more!

We "Girl Cousins" have been getting together for nine years now. Age various from 60+ to 40's, mid 20's and this year, a 15 year old joined in. So, actually cousins, daughters & a granddaughter. Our families got together a lot at Gram & Pa's, then it was just weddings & baby showers. Nine years ago, after getting together for the second funeral, we decided that we needed to be together for some good times. Mission accomplished and this is the perfect place for such a range in age and personalities.

We loved it!!!!

All Around Top Notch!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly one of a kind. It was a real pleasure to have the chance to stay in this home - the location on the water, the amenities in the home, Niki and Bill the owners, proximity to downtown lake george; all were top notch and provided everything needed to have the best time possible.

The pictures are impressive enough but once you arrive it really provides that WOW factor.

Thank you to Niki and Bill for your VERY prompt responses and we would definitely rent out again!

Beautiful home with wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed at this beautiful log cabin . We were very excited to see the amazing views of the river. We loved using the boats and sitting by the fire pit. We had one minor issue with the hot tub, but the owners responded immediately, and had a repairman out as soon as possible. We had plenty of room, and there is a lot to do there. We spent most of our time grilling, relaxing, and roasting marshmallows! The house came furnished with everything you could possibly need...plenty of towels, a fully equipped kitchen, grilling equipment. We couldn't have been happier with out stay. We hope to go back again!!
