Escape to the Gore Mountain Region. Our wintertime activities include skiing, sledding, tubing, ice skating and snowshoeing; our summertime fun includes scenic gondola and train rides, a farmers market, whitewater rafting, fishing, swimming and relaxing by the many lakes this region has to offer.

The Carriage House at Gore is an attached dwelling situated on 8 acres of wooded property overlooking a private pond. A deck attached to the Carriage House offers a great view of our private pond, and views from the bedrooms are of Gore Mountain. We are 15 minutes from North Creek and Chestertown, with skiing, dining, shopping, swimming and other attractions; 30 minutes from Lake George - with dining, mini-golf, bowling, shopping, cruises, boating & large beach; 45 minutes from Glens Falls with a mall, restaurants & a thriving downtown; 45 minutes from Newcomb with a Visitor's Interpretive Center, hiking & swimming, and 60 minutes from Saratoga Springs, home of Saratoga Race Course.

Relaxing & Quiet: The owner's house is attached to the Carriage House so that every need may be attended to. To ensure our guest's privacy, there is a completely separate entrance and deck to the Carriage House. It is the perfect place to kick back and relax with family.

One bedroom has a full-size bed; the second bedroom has two twin beds. Perfect for a small family. The living room has a sofa & love seat, and is attached to a kitchen with pots, pans, plates, bowls, utensils, coffee maker, toaster oven, refrigerator, stove/oven & microwave.

Wonderful, quiet, secluded retreat. All the comforts of home in this cozy efficiency.

  • 5 of 5

Great experience! Beautiful views of private lake from the deck. Comfortable and well decorated. Beautiful wood ceilings. Satellite TV and gaming system with multiple titles to entertain during bad weather or late evenings.

Perfect bedroom setup for parents and 2 children. Fridge, stove, sink, microwave, toaster oven and all the normal kitchen utensils for times when you want to cook for yourself instead of going out. Super secluded; sitting out on the deck all you hear are sounds of nature.

Owners were wonderful and very responsive. Great suggestions for local businesses (from breakfast, lunch and dinner to mechanic to fix our car).

Cozy and quiet on a lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay. Deb and Jim Morris were very accommodating and made us feel at home.. Even though the apt is above the garage it was still very private and separate from the house. It has 360° views that were just spectacular, with a deck overlooking their private lake..I went with my family of 5 and we were very cozy. very close to gore mountain and the town of north creek is very quaint.. Would def recommend and would like to go back for another winter trip and I'm sure the summers there are just as great...

Beautiful 💕

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and the view from the deck was beautiful. I felt like the size was perfect for us. Everything is a bit of a drive including to get to the house but well worth it. I thought that the pictures on line did not give enough justice to how pretty it really was in person. We will definitely be back.. Hopefully soon! 💕
