About the property

5 bedrooms, 2 full bathroom, sleeps 10

This home is located just 7 miles from Lake George and minutes from whitewater rafting on a quiet, wooded private acre. The backyard fire pit overlooks a peaceful pond with a picturesque backdrop of Adirondack hillsides making it the perfect getaway for family and friends.

5 bedrooms, outfitted with four queen-sized and one full bed, await you and your guests. Two bedrooms are on the first floor and make for easy access for our older guests. Three additional bedrooms with queen beds are located on the second level.

The home is decorated with rustic accents and is fully stocked for cooking both inside and out. A gas grill is available, as well as a gas range, microwave and dishwasher. The washer & dryer are ideal for cleaning up after one of Adirondack Park's many hikes.

There are two full bathrooms in the house: a newly renovated one with a bathtub/shower combo and the second with a full standing shower. Both have ADA-compliant toilets.

The large living room opens up to the dining area, offering space for the whole party while watching the large flat-screen TV or enjoying each other's company in front of the gas fireplace. Wifi is provided for planning your day's excursions, checking the weather or browsing social media. Roku streaming boxes with Netflix access (bring your password) and various board games are also provided for the occasional rainy day.

The homeowners have added a whole-house generator to be sure that your visit is uninterrupted by the elements.

First-time visitors will be awed at the Adirondacks and all that the area has to offer. Lake George and the surrounding towns make for endless family-friendly fun, with excursions like go-carts, mini-golf, bowling, shopping, roller skating, waterparks, Six Flags, a drive-in theater, hiking or just snuggling up with loved ones in front of the fireplace.

About Laura Harnden

After many years camping in the area we decided we loved the peacefulness so much that we purchased our vacation home. Knowing it brought us so much fun we decided that others could gather as we do and make some memories of their own.

Laura Harnden purchased this house in 2008

Why Laura Harnden chose Lake Luzerne

This property was purchased with the belief that "family" would have a special place to gather, make memories and share laughter. The photos of the outside of our home leave you thinking that this home is small, but once inside it is spacious and inviting. We pride ourselves with a clean, warm well appointed home, making for memorable vacations. The back of this property overlooks a wide pond which you will see as you enjoy the new fire pit. A peaceful and serene property close enough to Lake George and all their year round attractions.

What makes this house unique

The large living room/dining area make this home perfect for groups that love to enjoy a laughter filled meal, game night or holiday. The dining table can seat 10-12 guests. The dining table over looks the comfy couch and love seat, fireplace and flat screen TV! We have even added a high chair for the toddlers in your life. The gas fired fireplace will keep you warm and cozy inside and there a fire pit overlooking the pond to enjoy nature. With Wi-Fi and cable this home has it all. This past year we added a whole house generator to guarantee an uninterrupted vacation.

The perfect home for your Lake George Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My closest girl friends and I had rented this for my bacherloette weekend, and it was absolutely perfect! The house is ADORABLE, the outside is beautiful and SO peaceful with the pond outback. The house comes with everything you will need for your stay-towels, pots, pans, coffee maker, sheets for the beds-everything! The owners were such a pleasure to work with and so helpful! Our favorite part of the weekend was making memories and having lots of laughs around the dining room table and the bonfire! We would like to do this more often-have a girls trip and just keep re-living the awesome, unforgettable weekend we had.

All that is the Adirondack

  • 5 of 5

Location is great. We went garnet mining, to Mt Gore, enjoyed the beauty of Saratoga Springs and the horses, Lake George, horseback riding just across the road, a rodeo just up the road and great walking. And then we ran out of time!! Owner was great as well. Laura was an attentive and caring owner who answered questions quickly and was very welcoming to her home. The home was clean and comfy on a quiet road with a fire pit that overlooks a pond. Great place to spend the evening after a busy day or just relax at the house for a day.

Accommodating and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Everything you need and more. Very spacious inside and with the new added bathroom was great. Our friends and family also enjoyed the location. Saratoga Springs only 30 minutes away, Lake George 10 minutes away and the beautiful Lake Luzerne in our own backyard and let's not forget the Rodeo walking distance from the house. Can't say it enough great location!
