The Perfect Place for Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the perfect spot for our family's vacation this past summer. The setting was just spectacular! Our son went fishing off the dock, kayaked and splashed in the lake. We would highly recommend this property for a family vacation. Looking forward to returning this summer!

Good Accomodation BUT...

Good accomodation BUT...

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Our party of eight did enjoy the stay in the Lakehouse. The location is right on the lake, secluded from the street. The house was comfortable, perfect for multi-family party.

However, a part of the deposit was withheld for reason that additional cleaning was needed. We received back only two quarters of our deposit. We did fulfill all owner's requirements: washed dishes, removed towels and bedding, etc. My advice, take good pictures of the house before you leave. The owner is not local and rely on cleaning staff testimonies.

Also, we did not find a kettle in the kitchen nor iron.

Owner's Response: We take all feedback to heart and always look for ways to make The Lakehouse even more welcoming. Our guests were made aware of our concerns about the condition in which they left our home, at which point they threatened to leave a bad review. We returned the security deposit less the additional amount necessary for extra cleaning. One owner lives less than a mile from The Lakehouse so the comment about not being local is not accurate. Any missing items will be replaced for the convenience of our guests.

Terrific vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered here for a vacation (three families coming from three different cities). It's a nicely laid-out house (and clean and well-equipped), and it was perfect for us. Three floors, one for each family (three bathrooms!). The setting and view are truly gorgeous. It felt private and quiet and yet we were literally minutes away from the center of Saranac Lake (and Lake Placid, Keene, and Keene Valley are a short drive). We loved having family dinners on the deck, boating and kayaking, playing games/puzzles, and doing a little shopping. Owners were easy to work with. We're planning to go back! Would definitely recommend!

Our stay at the Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice in a beautiful setting right on Lake Flower. There were very pretty views of the lake from many rooms of the house. The Village of Lake Saranac is nearby and quite charming.

The owners were quite pleasant and the house is in good condition. You won't go wrong with this property.

There is a boat dock in front of the house. We rented a boat across the lake and our kids went tubing on Lake Flower. We also took a lovely boat ride for about 22 miles through a connected chain of lakes--I highly recommend doing this.

We did some hiking, and many good hikes are nearby. The town of Lake Placid is about 10 miles away.

The lake is clean and good for swimming, but does get deep quickly if you have very young children. The water was warm--at least in mid-August.

I would highly recommend this property.
