About Ken and Susan Gruskin
Our family loves the Adirondacks and spend as much time as we can at our vacation home which is across the street from Longview. We fell under the Lake George 'spell' in 2001, buying our ADK home so our family could enjoy the year-round fun and experiences that would provide a lifetime of memories. Since then, we have engaged in so many activities that has brought us closer together and opened a world of new experiences like boating, hiking, snow shoeing, midnight lake adventures, and so on. We love exploring the numerous sleepy towns and villages that dot the ADK park. When the log cabin across the street came on the market, we snapped it up so we could share our love for this special place with other families and individuals. Please note that we did not rent Longview during the 2018-2019 season (but it was rented prior seasons.) We are glad to re-list Longview beginning April 2019 and look forward to seeing you there!
Why Ken and Susan Gruskin chose Kattskill Bay
We could not think of any other area that offered such a wide range of year-round activities offering adventure, the outdoors, wildlife, waterfront fun, sports and activities, arts, good food, shopping, antiquing, relaxing, boating and lovely locals. We love to hike and one of the special benefits of this location literally across the street from our home and Longview is a hiking trail up to a gazebo overlook and further up to a beautiful waterfall. We recommend this hike in all four seasons as the trails transform to offer very different experiences. if you are seeking more challenging hikes, a few miles down the road is a great hike up Buck Mountain offering spectacular views of the Sagamore, the Narrows and views toward Lake George Village. Bring lots of water and take your time but the views from the top are worth the effort!
What makes this Cabin unique
Longview is a lovely real log cabin. It sits on the Lake George waterfront, overlooking Warner Bay--a quiet, 5 MPH bay serving a handful of homes and Fischer's Marina. The interior offers spectacular views of the lake with amazing sunrises and sunsets. Longview guests get the use of a dedicated boat slip to dock their own (or rented) boat during their stay. Boating on the lake is incredible with day trips to the numerous small towns along the 29 mile long lake. You can go by boat (or snow mobile in the winter) to Lake George village and have dinner, see the attractions or go shopping. Up in the narrows, you can stop in the small store located on Glen Island or go eat at one of the boat-in restaurants along the lake. Or, just dock in one of the quiet bays and relax and go swimming. The dock offers a sundeck for taking in the rays and relaxing while swimming off of the dock and jumping off of the Aquabouncer keeps everyone cool and busy. You will not have to go far to fish as many of our guest find they can catch good sized fish along our stone crib docks. In cooler weather, people love to use the cabins stone fireplace to add ADK ambience to the cabin and their stay. Fall is wonderful with crisp air for hikes and boating. Winter is fantastic with hiking, skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and making snowmen. If all else fails--there is always nearby outlet shopping, seasonal horse racing, art museums, music and lots of restaurants. Kids love Great Escape, all of the mini-golf, arcades, the rodeo, and all of the traditional waterside 'boardwalkesque' types of activities.

Terrific Weekend at Lake George
Beautiful property with incredible lake views. Susan and Kenneth were terrific hosts.
Pleasant Camp Along Lake George
My friends and I rented the property for a long weekend and this camp met all of our needs. It was accurate from the number of beds to fully available kitchen, grill, supplies, etc. and simply the beauty of the area. Booking was a bit old school, as even though it was booked through Home Away we corresponded via mail and phone, but you can tell the owners are experienced and professional. Some easy upgrades could be made to the electronics of the house, such as Wifi/Internet and TV but if you're booking this place to watch TV and browse your phone then I'd recommend keeping this place available for those who won't. Overall a great location and experience.
Beautiful serene and perfect place to stay in lake George
