Great location for a vacation -- porches & decks galore!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation home for a couple, family, or group! There was ample room for us, with a large master bedroom walking out onto a sitting deck (with a side-room in between perfect for a baby or younger child) out front and covered patio out back (with a grill), while our 16-year-old daughter and her 2 friends stayed in the 2 large bedrooms upstairs that have wonderful light! The kitchen is well appointed, the dining area seats 8+, and the living room was perfect for watching movies on the stuffed couches. My favorite parts were the deck out front where we ate breakfast and the screened in porch beside it with a loveseat rocker that my wife and I lounged in to watch the rain falling. The outdoors are equally enjoyable, with large trees shading a huge yard with an area for evening fires. And just down the hill is a lovely beach with sand gently sloping into beautiful Lake George. Wonderful!

We had a great stay, the house accommodates many and the walk to the beach/lake is very short. The kitchen is small but very well equipped and the owners have been very creative about making counter space. I enjoy cooking and felt right at home. The internet wasn't always consistently working but it was better then not having any. Would stay there again!

We can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this lovely spot for many years. The owners have been very accommodating of all of our needs and they go out of their way to make sure that each year is a better experience for us. The house has an open floor plan which makes it easy to maintain and helps to ensure that everyone can be comfortable. There are many different bed sizes to meet anyone's needs. The house is secluded yet not far from town. The beach is our favorite spot! We love the long, sandy beach and spend many hours down at the dock fishing, swimming, kayaking and sailing. They even have a mooring and/or dock space that you can rent if you have a boat. The views of the lake are really spectacular. We love the lawn chairs and the firepit up by the house and have enjoyed many evenings grilling outside. The deck is a nice spot to have coffee in the morning or to enjoy reading a good book. Each year we look forward to our summer vacation at this house!
