The property was rustic with a camp atmosphere

  • 3 of 5

The property has a nice large screened in front porch facing the lake, which was a nice place to have coffee in the morning. The yard is very large and great for the kids and dog to play in The area overall is conveniently located

Very pleased with location and accomodations

  • 4 of 5

The place was wonderful. It is a little rustic inside, but I personally like that kind of place. It was a very quiet community right on the lake and the mornings and evenings were amazing there. John was great and answered every question I had promptly on things. The yard area leading down to the lake was great for my dog to enjoy and romp in. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Great Holiday Weekend

We stayed Thanksgiving weekend 2014 to spend the holiday with our son who was stationed at Balston Spa while serving in the Navy. John was great and made us feel very welcome. Thank you again!

Very pleasant location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for what we wanted; quiet and relaxing. Fantastic wildlife right outside the cottage. I saw blue herons, a bald eagle, an osprey and many more birds every day without having to leave the yard. There are many walking/biking paths nearby. Many bird sanctuaries too. If quiet and birdwatching is what you are looking for I recommend the place highly. Very close to stores and shopping also.
