Great house but...
The house was absolutely beautiful! Although we has not expected the owners to be staying so close on property so close to us...not that it was a huge deal but we payed alot of money and epected to have privacy and it was not mentioned in the advertisment which i feel it should have been....there was also a strict rule of 6 people only when the house was very large and couls have easily accomodated more to lessen the cost. As far as the deposit....the house was checked repeatedly and i made sure there was no damage but i was sent a picture of an outdoor cushion the had a huge rip along the seam...something i easily would have seen when i checked the house over and i honestly do not think we had done...i was told that the store where the cushions were purchased no longer carried that print and as a result she was going to purchase all new cushions for almost 200$!!! I feel a bit scammed there as i do not think we should have had to replace any cushions that were not damaged especially for such a high fee....over all we felt a little taken advantage of and dissappointed. I would advice anyone staying the house to take pictures of everything before leaving so this does not happen to them.
Exceeded our expectations
My wife, Mom, and another couple recently stayed at “Camp Betty”, a beautiful rustic house and property overlooking Galway Lake. We are first time owners of a race horse and we were looking for a nice place to stay while our filly “Splash of Sass” did her best at the Saratoga track (she came in last but we still love her). We were looking for a lakefront rental with an easy drive to Saratoga so this property seemed to fit the bill. However, it surpassed our expectations. As you can see in the photos, the house is set back on raised land and the main living area is on the second level. This provides a wonderful view over the lake from the kitchen, living room, screened porch, and large outside deck. The view from the master bedroom on the third floor is even more spectacular. We’ve rented many properties over the years and often the outfitting is bare bones, but this one had a great “luxury rustic” atmosphere. The kitchen appliances, bed, and bath accommodations are top line. Cooking in was a pleasure, including watching the hummingbird sip from a feeder as we grilled on the outside deck looking out on the lake. The drive back and forth to Saratoga was quick and pleasant. Although there was a fishing boat with electric motor available we didn’t bring any gear, but we did make use of the two kayaks on the dock. Since no gas motors are allowed on the lake, it was glass smooth and there were only small sailboats and electric fishing boats or pontoon boats, which made for good paddling. Barbara was a great host, the whole trip was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this property and we plan on returning next year!
