George Lake/ Saratoga Area
Had the basic necessities, interior and exterior showing age. Didn’t state that 2 of the bedrooms were in the basement and you could hear everything going on upstairs, maybe needs rugs. Limited supplies. The pool was great the fire pit was great and a good location near all. It was a really nice trip
Looking Forward to Our Fifth Year!
It's a perfect get-away and get-together "home away from home" for our family (6 kids and 6 adults.) Quiet and restful but just about 5 minutes from Lake George. Games, hot-tub, salt-water pool, fire pit, Jacuzzi, lots of room, baths, TV's, and a unanimous vote to come back for a fifth year! You'll love it here.
Review of Adirondack Riverside Retreat – Camera watching you - NY
This house is large with many TVs. We had 10 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room. Downstairs was very cool in temp and upstairs was very warm. Charlie said not to touch the temp upstairs since the AC unit was old and it would freeze up.
The pool was cold and even when Charlie raised the temp it was still chilly. The pool was supposed to be cleaned during the week and it wasn’t.
The hot tub was nice. Closing the cover was very difficult since the cover lift assist was broken and required 2 people.
All the beds need an upgrade except for the master bedroom.
There are several video cameras and two Ring video/audio cameras outside in the back that face the pool area, the hot tub and the sitting areas. If all these cameras were placed this way for lawsuit reasons, then that should’ve been stated in the description of this house. If you don’t mind being watched while you are in the pool, hot tub or just hanging out with family this is the house for you.
If we would’ve read reviews about cameras facing such areas, we would not have rented this house. We have little children and cameras watching them just seems a little creepy.
The first night we arrived - Saturday, the police were called on us at 10:02 PM. Some family members were outside for the fireworks and then it started to rain and as they were going in, they were laughing. Please note it was only 2 minutes after 10 PM. The station was called the next morning to find out the time. Charlie was very angry. When asked a simple question on what the appropriate decibel level would be after 10 PM Charlie became more irate and wanted us to leave. In order to calm down the situation we apologized and assured all we would abide by the 10 PM rule and not go outside.
After investigation of the Warren County Ordinance for The Regulation of Sound Crossing Real Property Boundaries quiet hours Sun thru Thurs are 11 PM to 7 AM and on Fri – Sat they are 12 AM to 7 AM. The calibrated sound level allowed for residential areas is 45 decibels measured at the property line. Engineering research on noise levels showed a raised voice level of 75 db 25 feet away is under 45 db (a concert is 120 db). This can all be verified.
We understand there are rules for each property, what was not clear from the description and reviews was the difference between quiet time and silence required.
These house rules state 10 PM for quiet times, which really means silence outside.
Unfortunately, these guests chose not to follow the town vacation rental ordinance and house rules. Due to the fact of excessive noise during the quiet hours, the authorities had to respond. The sheriff filed a formal complaint with the town board, and we are awaiting a decision on the fine. Due to the sheriff’s warnings to lower the noise, the quests elected to submit an erroneous review that is unsustainable when compared to the numerous 5-star reviews for this property.
Very nice stay
We had a very nice visit! Charlie is great and made the process of checking in and out very easy . Location of this house is perfect. The backyard is beautiful and the pool is wonderful!
Great family vacation location
Wonderful facility for a big family....we came from all over the country...12 of us and a baby........lots of room so we were not on top of each other, enough TVs that everyone could watch what they wanted to watch......wonderful pool, heated and large. also much outdoor space. Kitchen fully equipped, plenty of refrigerator space, plenty of sit down eating space. There could be one more garbage can outside......lol......All in all, I would recommend this home highly. We all enjoyed our stay immensely.
This is a great property!
We had our family reunion at this property and it had all the amenities we could possibly want. The kids as well as adults loved the pool which was so clean and the perfect size. The kitchen is very well stocked with plenty of dishes. There were 14 of us and there was plenty of room for all to spread out. Charlie was very helpful also and accommodating. Needless to say we all had a great time!
