Best way to start the summer season!

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples in our group. We also had a few visitors during the day.The weather was mostly cool, windy and rainy. It sounds like the type of weather that would ruin the trip, but it did not. First: The owners are awesome! Most people feel leery about having owners around when they are renting, but these are the type of owners you want around. They live in the first house of the long driveway. Bill and Lauren could not have been more accommodating and helpful if they tried. Our boat broke down during the only window of opportunity we had to ride. Bill save the day by lending us a socket wrench to replace the spark plug. Lauren informed us on all the things going on in the area that weekend. They made us feel at home. The place was nice and felt better as the time passed. The kitchen and living are on the main floor with a fireplace and vaulted ceiling. There are sliding glass doors that leads to the deck. The deck wraps around two sides of the house. It is huge with a beautiful view. The grill is on the deck. There is a fire place in the back with a great view also. Firewood is provided by the owner. There are stairs that lead down to the private boat dock. Plenty of things to do here. The downstairs has two more bedrooms a bar and living room. It's close to a convenience store, bar, bakery and numerous other businesses within walking distance. There are plenty of board games in the house which we used during the rain. We also used both the outdoor and indoor fireplace. I can't say enough about Doc's Place. I would definitely stay here again. We loved it.

Great winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic - Just what I was looking for for a winter weekend get away! Bill and Lauren were very helpful and kind, especially since I had a bit of a scheduling snafu while organizing this trip. We got in late late night in the snow and Bill already had thoughtfully laid a fire in the fireplace for us, all ready to light. In the morning he came and shoveled off the walk for us! The house has a great view of the lake and was conveniently a short drive to the Lapland lake ski area that we spent the days at. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a laid back place to relax at the foot of the Adirondacks!

It was our first time visiting the area and we could not have been happier!

The location was perfect, the property was beautiful and the owners were extremely accommodating. We enjoyed our access to the lake and were given many helpful tips by the owners! They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed - We had a few minor issues - a noisy dishwasher and trouble with the T.V. - and they were so attentive to resolve this IMMEDIATELY! - We just wanted to bring it to their attention (it was not at all affecting our stay) and it was all hands on deck to get things fixed.

We would certainly recommend this property and also hope we can enjoy a future stay here.

Wonderful lake vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully spacious and well stocked home! Bill and Lauren are so friendly and helpful - Bill carried kayaks down the long staircase for us, lent our son a bike and was always open for a chat! The property is lovely and sitting on the wraparound porch while looking at the lake was so peaceful. We found places to jog and bike around Northville and drove to Lake George. All in all, Doc's Place is a great base for a great vacation experience!

Holiday on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

It's always special when we have time at Doc's Place on the Lake. The location is perfect! It is only 35 minutes to Oak Mountain and great places to hike in Wells and Speculator. Plus your close to other towns like Gloversville, Johnstown and not to far from Lake George and Saratoga. The view is beautiful and there is plenty of wildlife even though it is near town. We sighted two beautiful bald headed eagles, they roosted on the big tree in the driveway and we got a few great photos of them. The kitchen is huge and we always make a holiday dinner, this year we forgot potatoes and Bill (the owner) was kind enough to help us out! The kids got their mashed potatoes after all. It was Christmas day and everything was closed. Thank you again, we always look forward to coming to your house on the lake!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy with my stay here.

The house was very spacious, clean, nicely furnished, and had everything we needed stocked. The use of the owner's kayaks and paddleboat was a huge plus.

The view of the lake from the house/patio was fantastic.

The owners went way beyond expectations in terms of hospitality/nice-ness/helpfulness. They went out of their way to ensure we had a fun weekend.
