SWIMMING, FISHING, FAMILY FUN!

  • 5 of 5

WE RENTED THIS PROPERTY FOR 2 WEEKS. THE HOUSE WAS VERY CLEAN, AND ALL THE APPLIANCES ARE MODERN AND IN GREAT WORKING ORDER. THE OWNERS MET US THE FIRST DAY TO SHOW US AROUND AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS WE MIGHT HAVE HAD. THE HEALY'S ARE THE NICEST PEOPLE! ALL THE BEDROOMS HAD TV'S. THE LIVING ROOM KITCHEN AND DINNING ROOMS ARE ALL 1 BIG OPEN AREA GREAT FOR OUR LARGE GROUP OF 10 PLUS 2 DOGS. THERE IS A LARGE PATIO ACCESSIBLE FORM THE LIVING ROOM, AND THE MASTER SUITE WITH A GAS BBQ AND SMALL FIRE PIT THAT WE SAT AROUND AT NIGHT LOOKING AT ABOUT 1,000,000 STARS. ONE NIGHT WE EVEN SAW A DEER IN THE YARD! OFF THE PATIO IS A GREAT BONUS SCREENED IN ROOM WITH IT'S OWN TV. IT WAS PERFECT FOR ENJOYING THE COOL NIGHTS WITHOUT THE BUGS. THE BEACH AREA WAS ONLY A SHORT WALK AWAY ACROSS A LIGHTLY USED COUNTRY ROAD. THE BEACH AREA WAS SMALL BUT HAD 2 DOCKS, A SWIMM FLOAT, PICNIC TABLE, NON GAS GRILL, AND HAD A SHALLOW, SANDY BOTTOM ENTRY GREAT FOR THE KIDS. WE CAUGHT A LOT OF LARGE MOUTH BASS RIGHT FROM THE DOCKS(2 WERE 4PLUS LBS). THE ONLY 2 IMPROVEMENTS THAT WE COULD THINK OF WOULD BE: (1.) TO HANG A CURTAIN ON THE DOORS FROM THE MASTER SUITE OUT TO THE PATIO. PEOPLE STANDING AT THE SLIDER IN THE LIVING ROOM CAN SEE INTO THE BED AREA OF THE MASTER SUITE. (2.) ADD A SCREEN DOOR TO THE FRONT ENTRY. OTHER THAN THOSE 2 MINOR THING THIS WAS A GREAT HOUSE AND GREAT OWNERS. THEY WERE A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH, AND TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN THERE HOME ON THE LAKE. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY TO ANYBODY LOOKING FOR A GREAT RENTAL.

Vacation on Friends Lake July 2016

  • 5 of 5

We just vacationed on Friends Lake at this house last week. Exceptional! The house is very nice, well kept and perfect for entertaining. The screened in porch was just like having a whole other living space area and the patio out back was such a nice feature as well. The owners went over the top to accommodate us. Very nice, friendly and easy to work with.

We enjoyed spending time on Friends Lake and also spent time on Lake George which isn't too far away. It was a perfect, relaxing, lake vacation! We would definitely recommend this house to family and friends!!

What a fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough superlatives about the Healy's home - updated, spacious, inviting, John and Marla themselves were so welcoming when we arrived. Every possible thing you could need for a vacation was there in the home - and the backyard is amazing!

Even the weather cooperated with us - 89 -90 degree days, refreshing dips in the lake and swimming out to the swim platform, we all spent much of our days in the sun. Our dogs loved the back yard! And with so many amenities on the lake and nearby, we were never without something to do.

We enjoyed paddle boarding on Loon Lake, saw the fireworks at Schroon Lake, and ate some incredible meals in town. Take advantage of the list that is provided to you - you cannot go wrong with the recommendations!

I would definitely invite anyone looking for the combination of fun in the sun and privacy back home when you want to settle in for the night, to visit this home. We were made to feel like special friends and would definitely come back again!

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 5 and our dog. The homes main kitchen & living area has an open floor plan, patio with grill & chiminea, and screened in porch were just what we needed for us to cook meals together, play cards, have a fire in the chiminea and make some smore's. All of the bedrooms and 2 bathrooms fit our family perfectly and provided us all the space we needed. When we spending time at the lake, waterfront just a short walk down the lightly traveled road, the dock, adirondack chairs, and private boat launch were again just right. We had small fires lakeside in the stone fire pit after spending many hours on the lake boating & swimming. We brought our boat and really enjoyed the lake and dock access the property provided. John and Marla are extremely friendly and helpful and provided many great recommendations for local restaurants that we enjoyed a couple nights. Great property for an active family and we look forward to returning next year.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. The house was in great shape and had everything we could possible want -- cable, a great outdoor space, nice bathrooms, towels, etc. A very nice touch was the basket of toiletries -- toothbrushes, lotions, etc that meant that we didn't have to rush out to the drug store when we had realized we for gotten something.

The lake is just across the street -- at first a concern for us -- but it is about 100 yards away across a very lightly used road. We brought two kayaks and there is a private dock and turnabout so it was actually more convenient for us to load and unload than if it had been on the property! The small beach and dock with chairs is perfect for reading and an easy launch into the water.

The area has lots to do. While we were there we went whitewater rafting, went to the track Saratoga Springs for the day, and on the rainy day went to Queensbury to the movies. We ran out of time before going to Six Flags and go-cart racing in Lake George. There are surprisingly great restaurants in the area (Chestertown, who knew?) and Oscar's has smoked meats and cheeses and North has amazing fresh meat.

It's a great house, great location, John and Marla are friendly and helpful. We can't wait to come back!

Great blend of lake, nature & small town access

  • 5 of 5

Booked property for an extended weekend getaway – it was the perfect choice. House was exactly as described - well-furnished and comfortable. Master suite was a plus, allowing privacy from guests and great windows/doors to beautiful back yard and patio. You can tell that the owners take great pride in keeping it in top condition. Well equipped kitchen that opens to family area became the center for the nights’ activities when we weren’t out on the patio or relaxing in the screened in porch. Still cool enough at night to build a fire in the chimnea and enjoy the evening outside.

Wish we had access to a boat as the docks allow easy access. Instead we spent plenty of time lake side including enjoying magnificent sunsets each evening. One nice feature is that the house sits on the hill behind the private lake area; this allowed us to leave the lake behind once we were done for the day. For us, it was like two vacation locations.

Spent some time in the two nearby towns – enjoyed browsing the shops and grabbed some great steaks at the “Meat Store of the North” in Warrensburg. The owners were very easy to work with from reservation until we departed. We really enjoyed the house, thanks for your hospitality.
