About Hector & Marisol Rodriguez

Hector is retired from the City of New York and the Air Force. Marisol is retired from a NYS agency. We live west of Albany, NY, around 1hr 30 minutes from the cottage. We stay in the cottage frequently and make sure everything is in order. We love the Adirondacks and all the wonderful things it has to offer. We speak English and Spanish.

Hector & Marisol Rodriguez purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Hector & Marisol Rodriguez chose Great Sacandaga Lake

We decided to buy this house because it is very comfortable, airy, has a view of the Sacandaga River, it feels secluded yet it is close to the Village of Northville where we can find everything we need for our daily living. The house has big bedrooms with stoves and nice view of the surrounding area.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is private, we just can take a walk in our private dead-end road, go tubing, fishing, kayaking, swimming across the street and into the river. In the winter, the Lapland Cross Country Ski resort is just 6 minutes from the house. We can also go snow showing in our back yard. Snowmobile, down ski, ice fishing, everything is close by.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that you like our place and enjoyed the Great Sacandaga Lake. It is a beautiful lake, I particularly like the north end of it when the river merges with it. We are sorry about your experience with the marina. We do not keep our boat at a marina, just pull it to the public boat launch every time we use it. I will ask around to see what marina our neighbors recommend, and will send the information to you.

So relaxing!

We loved our stay at the cottage! Very quiet with perfect access to the beautiful river. The home was very clean and had everything you could need for a comfortable stay. We will definitely be back!

Great House for X-C Skiing at Lapland Lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a holiday ski weekend at Lapland Lake X-C Center a few minutes away. I agree with the reviewer who said the pictures don't do the house justice. My son and I found the listing and didn't really expect it to be up to my wife's exacting standards, but it was! Very spacious and charming; HUGE master bedroom, large 2d bedroom, living room and dining room (plus 3d bunkbed room). Gas fireplaces in both large bedrooms. Fully stocked. Hector, the owner, was very nice. We would rent it again, winter or summer, and recommend it highly.

One note: an earlier reviewer said the house didn't have WiFi or cell service. Hector and Marisol have since installed WiFi which works fine. However, both the house, and Lapland Lake, for that matter, are out of cell phone range, for Verizon at least. Adds to the Adirondack charm, but be aware of it! There is cell service in Northville, 10 minutes away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you compliments about the house. I am sorry that somehow we did not explain to you that you could make phone calls from the house using the WiFi service. I have a Verizon smart phone and use it all the time, while in the house, using the WiFi calling. You needed to add the code of our WiFi to your phone. The Adirondack Park is very strict regarding its policy on cell phone towers. They only allow them in some places. That is why there is no cell phone signal at Lapland. That is something that we cannot control. Again, our apologies. We hope to have you back as our guest.
