Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths

GREAT NEWS....now you take the FREE shuttle (stop is across the street), right to the base of Gore or the newly improved Ski bowl (Weekends and Holidays 8am-4:30pm).

Location, Location, Location! You cant beat it! The PERFECT Apres' Ski destination. Right in the heart of the greatly improved village of North Creek. This quaint Victorian cottage is just steps away from the ever popular Cafe' Sarah on Main Street, as well as the brand new Bar Vino Wine Bar, restaurants and shopping, all are just a very short walk from our home (Save on GAS). Just around the corner, is the newly developed ski bowl, which includes night skiing. This is also the area that now connects with the historic Burnt Ridge ski area and the rest of Gore Mountain.

Other close by attractions: In addition to downhill skiing, cross country trails are close by, or a short drive to many miles of trails at Garnet Lake. North Creek is also home to the Saratoga North Creek Railroad, which offers scenic train rides along the majestic Hudson River all the way to Saratoga, all season long. Don't miss the ' Polar Express' show on the train this winter. What an incredible ride during any season. The village is also home to many white water rafting companies, hiking trails, kayaking and the Barton Garnet Mines. Don't miss the train museum at the depot!

The House: This Queen Ann Cottage features three bedrooms, one has two full size beds and a TV, one has a queen size bed, a full size bed and a TV, and the other has a full size bed, all are on the second floor. There are also two full baths, one of which has a whirlpool tub. There is a fully equipped kitchen that is open to the dinning room, a living room with cable TV and and Apple TV. There is also a laundry/mud room for all your gear, and a beautiful wrap around porch with chairs to enjoy the view of Main Street and the mountains. If you like architecture, this house has plenty of details to enjoy, from the quarter sawn oak staircase with oak paneled walls, to the stained glass windows or the beautiful inlaid parquet floors and the antique coal burning fireplace (please burn wood only).

We look forward to having you!

Holiday weeks book quickly, so don't hesitate to call today to make your reservation. Pets will be considered, certain restrictions apply.

Great location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute to head to Gore for the weekend with friends. This house was perfect, great location, very clean and owner is very accommodating. We brought our dogs and they settled right in! House has lots of extra blankets & pillows, no need to bring extras! Great house for 2 families with lots of room for kids! Thank you for a great stay!

Very accomodating for our last minute travels.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to take a trip to Gore Mountain last minute because of a snow storm that was heading that way. Rich responded within 15 minutes of us putting in a request on VRBO. The home has beutiful Victorian character and is located in a quaint Village only 7 minutes from Gore. We were very impressed with our stay and want to thank Rich for allowing us to come with only 24 hours notice. He also drove all the way to the home to make sure it was shoveled for our arrival. We will definately be back and will return with the dog again! :)

Cozy Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable weekend in North Creek over January 20-23. The house is very cozy but roomy for four adults. It is well-provisioned and Rich is very responsive as a manager. Being located on Main Street, there are a number of restaurants and shops within easy walking distance including a bakery and sandwich shop across the street. It is also easy to get to Gore Mountain on weekends since the shuttle stop is right next to the bakery.

Good, functional house. Great Location.

  • 4 of 5

The house is cute, functional and clean, although dated. The location is great, walking distance to restaurants, grocery shopping, etc. Best of all, it's only 5 minute drive to Gore Mountain with access to shuttle if you do not want to drive. The owner/manager is very helpful.

very good location

  • 3 of 5

I would give this property 3.5 stars. It was a wonderful location, and sufficient for our needs. the owner was very prompt with responses to questions prior to our stay which was appreciated.

A few problems:

it was not as well stocked other places we have stayed

Not enough dish towels (and because there were no paper towels, this was more noticeable),

no coffee grinder

two of the four burners of the stove were not working.

We could not get the whirlpool tub to hold water (but I will fully admit that it may have been user error! there were no instructions, and we may not have been using it correctly)

Heat and hot water both were a bit fussy.

The living room was very comfortable, with nice furniture and space for our group of 7. Would have been nice to have seating near the fire, but old houses have small room sizes, so what can you do?

Our biggest problem was that the bedrooms are not as described. The current configuration is:

2 rooms with two double (maybe queen in one??) beds

1 room with bunk beds.

This did not work for our group of 7, and meant that one of our daughters had to sleep on a blow up air mattress on the floor. It was fine, but had we known, we would have chosen a home that was more appropriately set-up for our group.

Again, no big problems, no deal breakers, and if you are going to ski, the proximity to Gore is a real selling point, as was proximity to the Tops grocery store, Bar Vino and the coffee shop right across the street. Simply put, it was fine, but no "wow factor". A smaller group could easily stay here, but this isn't a good property for two families because of the current bedroom situation.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry for the unexpected change in the bedding situation. We had a full size bed in that bedroom that was recently broken. I'd intended to put the bunk beds in that bedroom at the end of the season it just came a little sooner. The stove is fairly new and works fine, the problem was someone left it partially open and in melted two of the knobs. All four burners work, you just have to remove it from one knob and put it on the other. I'm trying to get replacement parts, I'm 0 for 2, theyve sent me the wrong ones twice. The tub is also fine, it was operator error. Had you called and complained about the bed situation I would have surely dropped everything and gotten you a different bed up there the 1st day. Ask anyone I've dealt with, they know that's how I would react. You didn't give me the chance and just penalized me by putting it online. Each and every one of your complaints could have been easily rectified if you had just called me. I wish you would have handled it differently. Online reputation is everything in this business. It would certainly be acceptable, if not appropriate for you to complain online had I blown you off. I just was never given the opportunity to respond, I don't think that's fair. I go out of my way to take care of customers, always!

Great location and a great value.

  • 4 of 5

The house was as described. My friend and I had a great stay. The fireplace, old architecture and various memorabilia make the place interesting and unique.

Everything was in working order and no one had any complaints about the beds.

I would note to any one considering the house that the finish of interior, particularly in the bathrooms is a bit rough. Nothing that bothered us, and nothing we could complain about given rental price.

All in all we were more than pleased with the property and would stay again.
