About Allan & Beth Hamill

(Beth) I absolutely love Lake Luzerne! I have been coming here for vacations for over 50 years, spending my whole summers here as a child. The surrounding area is beautiful, the air and water just seem so much crisper and cleaner here. The lake is wonderful to spend time laying at the beach and swimming; going fishing, canoeing and kayaking; and to take an evening stroll around it after dinner. The town is lovely - there's a small market, drug store, post office, bank, local artist shop, antique store, a restaurant, four churches, and boasts 'the narrowest part of the Hudson River'. And there's almost every activity available in the larger surrounding area, just to name a few - Saratoga Race Course (one of my favorite), hiking, tubing/white water rafting, rodeo, outlet shopping, history, strolling the streets of Lake George and steamboat trips up the river. So when it's time for retirement we know we're living here in our 'Whispering Pines Cottage'! In the mean time we'd like to share this wonderful place with friends, family and new-comers.

Allan & Beth Hamill purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Allan & Beth Hamill chose New York

We purchased our cottage in Lake Luzerne because it was one of my favorite places in the world to visit, and I've traveled extensively throughout the US, Caribbean and Europe. It holds many, many memories from spending my childhood summers here and bringing my own children here to enjoy this wonderful lake/mountain/small town experience. I learned how to catch, clean & cook fish; row a boat; skeet & trap shoot; drive a car and a snow mobile; grow garden vegetables and freeze them; make donuts from scratch and pick wild berries to make pies. But most importantly spending time with great family friends (now four generations) and making 50+ years of memories here!

What makes this cottage unique

Private community with small private beach shared with 14 other households.

Peaceful get away on Lake Luzerne

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in a small community of houses with a shared beach on the lovely and peaceful Lake Luzerne. The house was clean, orderly and well appointed. If you are looking to spend time adventuring, kayaking or swimming in the pristine lake this cute lake house is a great find. The house is more ideal for younger families. Not ideal for older less active guests due to the steep incline down to the beach/lake. It is an easy drive to Lake George if you are looking to charter a fishing trip or cruise the lake on the steamboats. There is easy access to fishing or tubing on the Hudson river.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your thoughtful comments and we're delighted you found our home to your liking. A good point on the incline to the beach - it is not ideal for the elderly or those with less than good mobility. We hope to see you again and thanks for your comments!

Charming Adirondack cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cabin was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The mountains are beautiful and the lake is so clean and tranquil. It is not crowded or noisy, so you are not bothered by other people. The cabin is very clean and well appointed. Both bathrooms are beautiful, the bedrooms are cozy and comfortable, and the living room is inviting with a nice view of the lake. The porch is also very charming and a nice place to read a book or play a board game. Will definitely stay again!!!
