Great Property-Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this home for a long weekend to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary, and it was great. The view is spectacular, the pictures are accurate, and the home had all the amenities you would need. It is located about 10 minutes outside Saratoga, easy trip. It is quiet and very peaceful. It was easy to get in and get out, and the directions were spot on. Pantelis kept in touch with us throughout the weekend if we needed anything, which we didn't.

We highly recommend the Halcyon House and hope to stay here again.

Exceptional views of the lake from the west shore. Incredible moon rises and spanning views.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice little 4 night getaway here. The views from the upper deck are incredible. The house is comfortable and well stocked. New clean appliances and kitchen. A/C helped when the sun was blazing onto the house. Clearly the property is undergoing improvements. The waterfront is a little difficult to navigate, but once a bit offshore there was nice swimming to be had. Must have water shoes to get through the rocks. I think the owner intends to improve the shoreline which would be a welcome improvement.

We had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this lovely apartment while the ballet was in Saratoga.

What an incredible view.

The kitchen was well stocked so cooking was easy.

We watched the moon rise in the evening and canoed on the lake every day.

We hope to return next summer.

A great place to get together with friends

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this home on Saratoga Lake was wonderful. The house comfortably fit 7 people, with room for a twin air mattress in the living room. Pantelis gave clear and concise directions for how to get to and enter the house. He was available throughout our stay by phone, in case we had any questions. The house was clean, as expected, upon arrival. The house was full of conveniences like paper towels, toliet paper, napkins, and plenty of cookware. The appliances were all great as well. All these things allowed us to cook all of our meals and spend the most amount of time together (while saving money). There was a nice big dining room table that sat all 7 of us for dinners!

The views from the deck were just perfect. We really spent our entire stay on the deck, from morning until night. If we weren't on the deck we were in the lake. That being said, entry into the lake was a little dicey using the steps to this property. Most properties have docks or small beach entry, but being that this property is on a hill, there are steep steps that go down to the lake, and just sort of end on a small rocky patch. It was doable for myself and my friends, but would be a little difficult for young kids. Also - for anyone reading this who may swim in the lake, bring water shoes. The rocks and slate in this lake are sharp and easily slice up feet.

This lakeside neighborhood was welcoming and wonderful. It was nice to be in a peaceful and serene place where people live year round, and allowed for a nice and peaceful retreat. We were close to Saratoga Race Track (10 min) and Lake George (35 min), both of which we visited easily! There is a grocery store less than 10 minutes away which was great for everything we needed.

Though we spent a majority of our time outdoors, the house's central air was amazing for those who needed to cool off. It was a nice break from the 90 degree days we had when it was needed.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! We would definitely chose this property again

we had a great trip here with our friends. We are a couple and brought our 2 year old and another couple friend. The kitchen was lovely, and we cooked meals on the grill and ate outside. The view was our favorite part - probably the tallest deck around us, and so we could hang out and sun and no one nearby would even see us! It was lovely. Pantelis was easy to work with and was easily available for questions. The house was clean and comfortable, and the lake was warm! The neighborhood road was really nice for strolling down, and we went for several nice walks. I would definitely recommend this house!

Amazing spot!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house to propose to my girlfriend at sunset on Saratoga Lake. The owner was great about everything before, during and after my stay. The views of the lake are amazing, and the place was spotless. Would love to go back in a heartbeat!
