About Glenn Batease

I have lived in the Lake George area most of my life. As a business owner, I have a local excavating business and am active with the Chamber of Commerce. Admiring the beauty of the Adirondack wildlife and participating in outdoor sports are among some of the activities I enjoy. Also, I thoroughly enjoy meeting people and traveling. I have a very adventurous spirit and enjoy challenging myself.

Why Glenn Batease chose Lake George Area

This mountaintop property is my pride and joy. I built this 8,000 custom estate using the materials from the 200 acre property. I positioned the estate so that you can have a 360 degree view, see four states and can enjoy the sunrise and sunset. The 5500 feet of covered balcony and decking brings the outdoors into the home. This is like being on the top of the world.

What makes this estate unique

Upon entering the property from the private drive, you are in another world, above it all. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view, peacefulness and wildlife. Enjoy the view from every room in this massive 8,000 custom home.

This beautiful home sits on a spacious property with amazing views -- it's truly special!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly special home that's ideal for any large family (we were a group of 10) who's looking for a unique vacation experience. The home itself is lovely and quite spacious -- it has a rustic feel with modern conveniences. It sits on top of a mountain, which provides spectacular 360 degree views of four states (NH, VT, CT and NY). The sunrises and sunsets were simply amazing -- collectively, we took literally hundreds of photos of the gorgeous views! The property itself was quiet and peaceful, with ample space for hiking, exploring, and tossing around a football.

The bedrooms were very nice (especially those on the second and ground floors), the kitchen was well equipped, and there were a couple of game rooms were our kids could hang out. The hot tub was used quite often, as was the grill (in fact, we cooked most of our dinners on the deck). For those who preferred to just relax, there were handmade wooden deck chairs, a huge rocking chair and a comfortable hammock (again, all with awesome views!).

As wonderful as the home itself was, the owners (Glenn and Lynn) were equally great. They were both extremely friendly and helpful, and they went out of their way to make sure we were fully satisfied every day of our stay. All in all, this was a terrific vacation rental, and we'll definitely consider staying here again.

Great Owners + Great Views + Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property during our Christmas Break for 8 days with 5 families. First off.. Hats off to Glenn and Beatrice for being the most amazing hosts. Glenn was there everyday to replace the wood in the furnace, but he helped us pretty much with everything. Stuck cars in snow to ideas on how to have fun when snowed in, clearing/salting the pathway pretty much every day. This property is a perfect wooden chalet with home away from home feeling. Lots of space. 3 stories with plenty of rooms and tons of activities (pool table, foozball, tons of movies). Kids had a lot to do even when we couldnt get out. Fully stocked kitchen.. Last but not least, the views are phenomenal, being one of the highest properties in the town of Glen Falls, and still not being far from the town if need be. There is smaller ski resort in Glen Falls but that was closed during our visit. White Face mountain of the olympic fame, is about 75 minutes drive. Thank you Glenn for welcoming us and making our stay the one we will cherish for a long time. We will sure be visiting them back during our next winter vacation.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

The house is on the top of the mountain with a football field-sized lawn and backyard and has a great view of the sunrise and sunset with a hot tub and decks surrounding the entire house. There is a big firepit to enjoy in the evening. The house is very spacious with 7 bedrooms and a big living room. The owner was very nice and courteous and we enjoyed our stay.

Complete Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This mountaintop house was the perfect getaway for my family and I. The view was incredible and just as breathtaking as the house was. The house was spacious, neat and a good fit for my family. We visit Lake George every year and it is nice to finally be able to say we have found our home away from home.

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

This mountaintop property was so unique and awesome. What a great way to spend our vacation. It was like we were on top of the world. It was so peaceful and quiet, yet we were just one mile from the ski slope. We just loved the fact that there were beautiful views everywhere you turned. The home was very nice and allowed us plenty of space and privacy. A great time spent with family and friends. I would definitely come back again.
