Great place right on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

What a view in the morning and loved the proximity to Lake George without the hustle and bustle. Fun time fishing and canoeing and the pool table came in handy when the weather didn't cooperate. And Shawn was very responsive and helpful. Will stay there again.

Property could use some upgrades, but fantastic house w immense potential

  • 4 of 5

The Lake and the view from the house is nothing short of spectacular. If you are looking for some privacy for your family and friends but convenience of being within stone's throw of all Lake George has to offer, mixed in with a property owner who is more than welcoming, accommodating, quick to resolve or prevent an issue from making your stay nothing short of terrific, then this is the house for you. On a side note, I would be very interested in renting this house along w the basement option at Lake level. (When you're ready) Easy access to the lake and possibly another bathroom to access would be appealing!! (Just saying Shawn!)

Beautiful location just run down

  • 2 of 5

It was a beautiful and very convenient location, loved sitting by the water great place for a campfire, great pool table. The downside is it only had 1 shower which was inconvenient since we were 5 adults that had to get ready at the same time. The master suite had a bathroom with only a Jacuzzi tub and toilet, which was very odd since there was no dividers, the bathroom also has wall to wall carpet which grossed us out, the kitchen needs to be cleaned out, had alot of old stuff in the cabinets and drawers and not very clean, just a little rundown.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your opinion. Just wish maybe next time you rent through Homeaway you view the pictures a little better. The house is exactly what the pictures show. Thanks for staying.

Excellent family/friend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. This house was off a main road but tucked away enough to feel remote. Having access to a canoe, kayak, and row boat were perfect for daily outings on the lake. This house is very family friendly - we travelled with 2- 2 year olds and were not worried about safety issues at all. Shawn was very helpful with the entire process and checked in with us to make sure everything was going great. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Week!!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be exactly as advertised and even more than we expected...beautiful, incredibly clean and well appointed, and also in a prefect location! Although only 5 minutes from the heart of Lake George, it felt as though we were 1000 miles from civilization on a pristine lake. The house has to be seen to be believed and the pictures do not do it justice!

Our kids (17 and 19) spent almost every waking moment in the kayak, canoe or rowboat fishing or chilling on the dock with rods in hand! A little tubing, a little shopping in Lake George and a visit to Saratoga Race Track made this a very special and relaxing vacation.

We had a couple of questions about the house when we arrived and, after texting our host, Shawn came by and helped us out by answering all of our questions. The kitchen had everything that anyone would possibly need and the gazebo on the deck overlooking the lake is where we had most of our meals.

Overall we had a fabulous time and we will definitely be returning! Thanks for everything Shawn...our week was wonderful!!!
