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!!!

Perfect Getaway in Nature

  • 4 of 5

So much more than we had hoped for. We stayed for 3 nights with our two adult children and their partners and it was more than we expected. Lovely large!!!! home for relaxing, creating memories, bonding with family and nature. The pictures shown in the listing are spot on. Plus a pool table!

Mother Nature in the Adirondacks can be ever changing as we experienced rain ( yes Shawn even had large umbrellas to use ), hot and humid weather ( this home has multiple AC units to keep you cool enough) and cooler temps at night,(yes there is a fire pit if you choose.)

Unfortunately, we were only there for three night, so busy away from the home that we didn't' take advantage of the water toys.

The location was perfect, far enough from the crowds but close enough to Lake George and all that it has to offer which has something for all ages!

Ample parking in the "tourist portion of Lake George."

We also choose this location as it was about 30 minutes from Saratoga Race track and the quaint town of Saratoga Springs with its' cute shops and abundance of restaurants. We parked for free in a public lot and took the free trolley to the track and a taxi or uber back to town.

For the golfers( novice to advanced), there is an inexpensive, beautiful, no frills, family run golf course 15 minutes north of this house. If you want to get in a quick 9 or 18 holes before the track my husband recommends the Cronin Golf Course in Warrensburg, NY.

One tip to remember....Don't forget your bug spray. I am sure if Shawn had control over that he would have taken care of that too.

Loved Our House

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house as an excuse to stay with our son, his wife and their newborn as well as another young couple with a 17 month old who were all gathering to attend a wedding of an old school chum in Queensbury. The house is spacious beyond belief allowing plenty of space for the little ones and adults alike. With its view of the lake, the deck was a wonderful place to sit in solitude in the morning and evening. My wife and I took advantage of the dock and boat to take a lazy trip around the lake. Shawn was responsive, attentive and accommodating as befits a good host.

Would stay there again

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at this location was just what we needed. The house is large and accommodating. The location is about 6 miles from downtown Lake George. Just the right distance to be away from the busy downtown. The lake adjacent to the house has a small beach and dock for your use. The owner is dog friendly. Shawn, the owner is quite accommodating. Would go back again!
