Great location in Bolton Landing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for a long weekend away on Lake George and we couldn't be happier! We invited a few family members to join us and everyone who spent time there was so pleased! The location is perfect. Just steps away from Bolton Landing's adorable downtown which had tons of quaint shops, and restaurants. We spent most of our days on Lake George and nights around the campfire in their very private, relaxing property. My brother and sister in law joined us for night with their young kids. They stayed in the second house. It was perfect for them! Such a great property for multiple families. We all had our own space and didn't feel on top of each other. House was well kept, with numerous bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry, grill, fire-pit, & minutes away from Lake George. The home owner was always quick to respond to any questions we had. Couldn't have asked for more! I would definitely recommend this place and we hope to come back next year!

It is not worth staying in this house. It is dirty

Owner's Response: NO, it is NOT dirty! If you had a problem with something you should have called me and it would have been resolved at the time!!! It does no good to wait 2 weeks and then complain in a review!!!! You can read all the other reviews for people who have stayed this summer . One of the first things they say is how CLEAN it is. So I don’t know what you’re talking about!! Our goal is to provide a nice, clean comfortable place for people to have a vacation ! That’s what we do and that’s what we will continue to do!!!!!

Lots of Room for Fun, Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for a big extended family to spend a long weekend together! The kids loved the foosball table and playing hide and seek (lots of little corners and cubbies to hide in!). The grownups loved being close to town for shopping. We will definitely return!

Perfect for a large group

  • 5 of 5

With 4 bedrooms in the main house plus 2 more in the separate cottage plus futons in the living areas of both, you can accommodate a large group. And since each of the bedrooms has 2 twin-xl beds it makes it easy to sleep a group of people who may or may not wish to share a bed. This is an old house. So some of the floors have a bit of a slant and some of the doors don't close smoothly but these are really minor things. Everything was clean and there were plenty of blankets and pillows and plenty of cleaning products for bathroom and kitchen. The house and cottage have several window A/C units which kept the house pleasantly cool when temps were in the 80s during the day.

Joyce was very helpful with the few minor issues we had (like bulbs for a light that wasn't working). The fire pit out back was our favorite feature. You can get firewood in town and there are lots of chairs outside for everyone to sit and relax in the beautiful weather. The house is just up the hill from the center of town. We walked several times. It's a rather steep hill with very little shoulder in one section. But I never felt unsafe. Even though it's close to town, it's very quiet at night and the starry sky was lovely. There's lots to do around Bolton. The little downtown is great to walk through with a nice selection of retaurants, boutiques, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream shop and an Antique store that you really must visit. If you like to hike, the Pinnacle View trail is quite close by and gives an awesome view of the town and lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our week.
