House was beautiful, peaceful and clean. Area was full of many activities and neighbors were great. Everyone, was nice and helpful. It was a vacation to remember. I give it a 5 star! My only regret was, we would have like to have stayed longer! Thanks Willi
A Great Stay, 3 times!
This was the third year our family rented this lovely cottage. Each year we came we were always greeted with an awesome stay. We could not ask for more. We stayed this year for 2 weeks. The house was always clean, well equipped, and really nicely decorated in a rustic style. The view from the house of the lake is superb! The area is accessible to everything and the lake right across the street from the house is out of this world. We all had something to do that we enjoyed. My wife likes to go to Saratoga, which is so close. I think it took us 30 minutes tops. The kids love the lake for swimming and playing. I love relaxing to a good book soaking up the sun. We all found the house and vacation was exactly what we needed. Once you find a good place on the lake that has something for everyone in the family, you keep coming back. The owners were very welcoming and easy to get a hold of, if we had a question. You could tell they were very eager to help. It was a great vacation!
We will definitely come back again next year for our fourth year. If you love Sacandaga Lake like we do, you could not ask for more in a rental property. Thanks Homeaway!
Best kept Secret on the Lake
My family and I were looking for a place to stay on the lake. This was our first time visiting the area and wanted a place to stay for a week to vacation. We read the reviews of this house and honestly did not know what to expect. This house was exactly what we were looking for and more! Great house and very nicely decorated. The views were terrific from the time ou walk in. We wished we could have stayed longer. We all had so much fun, two adult with kids, we did not want to go home. I can’t find one bad thing to say. The owners were very attentive and provided everything we needed to have a great vacation. There were lots of activities on the lake and we docked our small boat right by the house. The leaves had just started to turn and the lake was beautiful. We even took a couple day trips to Lake George and Saratoga, which were not far at all. I can't say anything bad about the area or house. The house was clean and well equipped. The grounds were breathtaking and very private and when we wanted more action, we went out. We did it all and really enjoyed the area and the house. Very nice house at a reasonable price. We are glad we booked this house for your vacation and first experience on the lake. It was well worth the money. We will definitely come back. Thank you to the owners.
After reading favorable reviews for this property, my family rented this house for a week in August, 2015. After we arrived, we were optimistic we would have an enjoyable stay. The property was well kept, the house was quaint and clean and there were numerous amenities that could make for a relaxing getaway. The sun porch and the outside deck offered wonderful views of the Lake and the location was perfect.
Unfortunately, after we settled in, we received an unannounced visit from the local Electric Company. The Electric Company rep cut off all electricity services to the premises (lights, water, and telephone). The Electric Company stated they had attempted to resolve a significant problem with the owner "numerous times over several MONTHS" but the owner had still not resolved the financial issue. My husband and I had to drive to a nearby town to use our cell phone to email the owner regarding the problem. The owner responded they would look into the problem and would quickly get back with us. After waiting for HOURS with no response/resolution to the problem and with nightfall approaching, we had no choice but to return to the house, move back out and go to another town to check into a hotel. We immediately sent the owner a message advising where we left the house key. The owner responded they needed more time to look into the matter and suggested we could have used a generator!!
Needless to say, we cannot recommend this property as we had a terrible experience and hope steps will be taken to prevent future renters from becoming victims of similar circumstances.
This was our second year staying at this wonderful home. I grew up on this lake and can say without hesitation that I believe this is one of the best locations. The home has everything anyone will need to vacation in comfort. My now 5-year-old grandson is building lifetime memories at this lovely camp and for that I am eternally thankful. My little guy requires a clean and healthy environment due to health issues and this property is spotless and the owner is quick to respond to any needs/questions you may have. I cannot wait to return next year! Thank you Willi for another grand vacation.
We had a great vacation. Very cozy, quiet well decorated and clean house. We felt right at home. The house was equipped with everything we needed just to relax and be right at home. My husband and I were a bit concerned that our two daughter who are 6 and 16, might be difficult to entertain on the lake because of age, they have varied interest. However, we were wrong. They both loved it and there was so much to do. The house is in a perfect location and close to a lot of attactions. We all found something to enjoy.
The owner too was easy to get a hold of when we needed anything and made us feel right at home. Kudos! We would have no reservations to recommend this house and area for a great family vacation.
We had a great well needed vacation. Owner was very hospitable and provided helpful information about the area.
The house was clean, well maintained, and very nicely decorated. Views of the lake and access for swimming and family picnics was awesome. Thanks for everything, we will be back next year!
