About Melissa Joss

I grew up coming to the lake with my family for the summers and eventually was fortunate enough to get my own place. My grandparents were the first in my family to discover the lake and my mother and aunts have all kept the tradition of summers on the Sacandaga going for their families. I would like to do the same for my family.

Melissa Joss purchased this house in 2014

Why Melissa Joss chose Great Sacandaga Lake

It's peaceful, pretty and cozy. Neat clean and self contained. Private setting with lovely trees and lawn with seasonal views of the lake. Off the beaten path on a dirt road with not a lot of traffic except for other residents. Safe for children. Easy access to town and stores. Bring a canoe, kayak or paddle board and spend the day exploring the nearby Kenyon islands. Motor boats welcome easy access to state boat launch. Bike riding, walking or running. You name it you pretty much have it here.

What makes this house unique

Sandy beach with beautiful views of the mountains and the sunsets. Facing west so you have all day sun. Summer days are endless here off of Seven Hills Road. This is truly a beautiful place.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house was equipt with everything, we loved the porch, and the beach was perfect. Everyone who shared the beach was nice/friendly.

Some might have concerns that the bedrooms were connected but we didn't mind. Loved the location!!

Had I known about the lake access ahead of time I might not have rented home

  • 2 of 5

Did not like to have to walk thru all three bedrooms, bathroom very small. Did not like lake access, it was very confusing. Not a lot of room at lake. Neighbor parked his truck and atv right in front of where our chairs were. Lake area was disappointing. House was clean. Took a while for owner to respond back to me about the beach area and how far away the stores where located. Northville was a cute little town with a lot of antiques.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear your stay wasn't what you expected. I apologize that the neighbor didn't respect the beach, he has since sold the house and I don't expect that to be a problem in the future. The lake tends to become very crowded in early July and with the water levels much higher this season I can see that you didn't get the normal beach experience. I hope it doesn't turn you away from the lake over all cause it's such a wonderful place to vacation. Thank you for your review.

Quaint and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival the cottage was clean and inviting which made it easy to have a relaxing time. The living room was comfy and it was nice to have internet and Smart TV. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen was accommodating. The only downfall was the bathroom was very tiny. The deck was enjoyable to bbq and stargaze. We enjoyed kayaking and exploring the area.

Hometown feel.

  • 5 of 5

Such a quaint little spot and place, that came with wonderful surroundings and some enjoyable low key time with the locals. We felt at home from the moment of arrival. Very much enjoyed our stay and hoping to make this a yearly gathering spot. ❤️

We had a fabulous time at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice. Everything was wonderful but we were surprised that the bedrooms were linked. Had to walk through one to get to the next. We had such a great time it was easy enough to deal with. The beach is one of the best on the lake. A long stretch of SAND! I'm used to all the rocky beaches. This was a real treat. The neighbors were terrific.
