This turn of the century home is fully furnished and sits on a lot backed up to the woods. It has a screened in porch on the front and a comfortable deck with gas grill in the back. The fire pit in the back yard is a great gathering place in the evening to roast marshmallows.

The house offers a large, fully equipped, eat in kitchen which is adjoined by the living room with a queen size futon. Off the kitchen is a bedroom with two twin beds. The bathroom with shower has access from the bedroom or kitchen and includes a combination washer/dryer.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a full bath with tub. Each of the four bedrooms have two twin beds and two dressers.

The home has a new oil fired hot air furnace and is extremely well insulated so it remains cool in the summer with all the shade trees around the house. Window air conditioners are provided for extreme heat or humidity.

Please bring your own towels to maximize turn over time.

The separate two bedroom cottage in the back has a small kitchenette, living room, and bath with shower and can sleep another four people . It’s perfect for older teens or in-laws. It always rents with the house at no extra charge.

This comfortable, affordable home is a great family getaway in the mountains.

Comfortable Home in Quiet but Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

Joyce was prompt and helpful in communicating before we arrived. The house was clean and comfortable. The numerous single beds offer good flexibility for groups. The fire pit out back has plenty of chairs. The house is in a quiet spot with privacy, yet downtown Bolton is just a short walk down the hill. I would stay here again.

Nice space for weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Nice house right near 9N. Little older but clean, maintained well, and stocked with everything you could need: spices, full kitchen, propane bbq, foosball, parking, extra sheets, (but it is bring your own towels). The 12 single beds are great for a group that isn't super close. We'd stay here again

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We find that all twin beds makes the sleeping patterns more flexible. They are easily pushed together for those who want to sleep closer. We don't supply towels because of limited turn around time in the summer.... just too much to be washed and dried for 12 people ! Glad to have you back anytime!

Rustic house in Bolton Landing

  • 3 of 5

Great location right up the road from the center of the lovely town of Bolton Landing & beaches on Lake George (there are no beach passes, but it is only $5/car). This is a rustic home with 6 bedrooms (4 in the main house & 2 in a guest house). A/C is in 3 of the 6 bedrooms. Great backyard with gas grill, fire pit & plenty of adirondack chairs. The owner is lovely & very responsive in an emergency. It would be very helpful to future renters to have an FAQ sent about a week before arrival with all relevant information.

Good experience. Enjoyed the cottage, house, deck, and yard. Some problems, nothing serious.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good week with 7 adults and 5 children. We were glad for the driveway space to park our small camper in order to turn the cottage bedrooms into single bedrooms.

Note that though the property is in walking distance to the town it is up a steep hill with out much road shoulder.

The owner was very responsive to our questions and needs.

The problems we found were minor fix it projects (e.g. loose door knobs and towel ring; hole in porch screen; weak shower). I'm sure they will be fixed for the next guests.

Uninhabitable full of urine

  • 1 of 5

Shocked the headline of this place is "relax." Seems like anything you could relax on in this house was full of urine. Cleaners may have picked up trash etc, but the house is old, and not well maintained. For instance, we had 0 food in the house as we were grilling at another rented home, yet there was an ant colony in the kitchen. Hard to sleep on urine filled mattresses knowing that.

I will say Joyce as a host was very helpful and nice, but why would you advertise the house like this at this price point? It's sick.

It as if this were a frat house, but no one in the frat had to live in it, so they just mistreated it.

I would just stay away. I couldn't imagine a group of friends let alone a family not feeling violated after leaving this place. Icing on the cake is, multiple members of the house have what looks like bed bug bites. The sole reason you do not have to bring sheets is to cover up the urine on the mattresses. It's really just not nice to advertise this house.

Owner's Response: Kevin, I was frankly shocked by your review! You're obviously a person prone to inaccuracies and exaggeration of the facts. If you actually thought the house was that bad , why didn't you call me? I would have been glad to have remedied the situation immediately or refunded your money. In fact , your allegations are not true. I just had a professional cleaning service come in to check. They found one mattress with a stain which I have since replaced. There are NO urine soaked mattresses ! It must have happened last winter when the house was closed up and we didn't notice it. There was a small leak in the roof due to storm damage and I have since had a whole new roof put on at considerable expense. The house is older but has been completely renovated. It is well cleaned and well maintained by a professional group. In fact, guests who stayed there before you have already said they want to come back next year. I've had many repeat guests year after year. The cleaning service found NO bed bugs. Due to the many days of rain we have had a lot of mosquitoes. You're very young and I think you need to learn the difference between bed bug bites and mosquito bites. I have provided rental houses so families can have clean comfortable lodging for a nice family vacation for years. Prior to that I had my own professional business all my life. The next time you write a review for a property I hope you've voiced your concerns to the owner first and don't exaggerate . This is a business and I have always gotten 4 or 5 star reviews !!! I didn't appreciate this inaccurate review!!! Enjoy your frat houses!
