Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms --- sleeps 11, both private and convenient

Looking for that authentic Adirondack feel and experience? You'll absolutely love our laid-back Adirondack cabin with a large, rambling floor plan. Old-school Adirondack feeling with the comfort of new, modern conveniences. Perfect for providing lots of room and privacy for two families, or a big bunch of friends. Over 3,000 square feet of "ahhhhh."

**Please note: If interested, click Contact Owner, not Request to Book. Thanks!**

NOTE: in summer season, this is a SUNDAY - SUNDAY rental.

Just up the lake shore road from the center of Bolton Landing on 3 private acres, with Indian Brook running through the property. This house is close to town, yet a little off the beaten path for privacy and serenity. Spend the day a million fun ways -- rafting, horseback riding, shopping, boating, hiking -- then come back, soak up some sun on a chaise lounge or play a raucous game of ping-pong or foosball in our rec room. Sizzle up a feast on the grill, or roast marshmallows at the fire pit.

Above all, relax, breathe, enjoy!

Room configuration:

First floor: Bunk BR (twins); Full Bath, Rec Room with ping pong, foosball, and board games; TV Room with 125-channel cable and Roku; Sitting area; Laundry Room

Main floor: Main Living Room; Dining Area; Fully Equipped Kitchen; Half Bath; Wrap-around Deck; Music Room (with sleeper sofa); Studio Living Room with Smart TV with streaming services and 125-channel cable, DVD; "The Dorm" (two twins); Sleeping Loft (double)

Top floor: Vaulted-ceiling Master BR (queen); vaulted-ceiling Guest BR (double) with twin daybed; Full Bath.

AC units in top floor bedrooms (Master and Guest). Studio wing has skylights, ceiling fans, and cool-air convection from the lower floor.

Outside: Wrap-around deck with lots of seating (as well as gates to close off the two stairwells), new gas grill, stone fire pit

Some things to make your stay more enjoyable:

1. We supply daily cleaning products and paper goods. Please see Cleaning Policy and Linen Policy, below, for details.

2. Parking for Bolton Landing town beaches is just $5 a day.

3. We have a brochure basket for a sampling of the local sights, attractions, and activities.

About Sue Torrey

We are "creative types" and avid nature lovers who grew up knocking around outdoors in the summer -- Don at the beaches of New England, me (Sue) at Lake George. My family started camping on the islands of the lake in the 50s, when my older brothers were little, so I grew up with LG as the center of my world. I think I have lake water running in my veins! :)

We both grew up and still live in Connecticut, are proud of our two performing artist children, and routinely rescue Siberian Huskies.

Sue Torrey purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Sue Torrey chose Lake George Area

Instead of a fussy, fancy "don't touch" house, we wanted something as comfortable as a favorite sweatshirt -- with comfortable beds and hot showers, of course!

Bolton Landing hasn't changed very much since the 60s, and that's a good thing. I still remember having blueberry pancakes at Ida and Audie's Country Diner -- and you still can! Or find a whimsical trinket at the Indian Teepee Shop. There are fabulous NEW restaurants, as well, and don't forget Bob's Ice Cream!

People are so friendly, laid-back, and down to earth in this neck of the woods. We all share a deep love for the mountains, rivers, and lake beauty that's all around us.

What makes this cabin unique

This barefoot-easy home just rambles on and on. We actually got lost -- inside! -- when we saw it the first time. Three levels, different kinds of bedrooms and gathering spaces -- it has so much to offer.

My favorite thing to do in the morning is sit out on the deck in the early sun with a mug of hot coffee, and listen to the boats putting by on the lake. My fave thing to do in the evenings is roast marshmallows at the fire pit and sing camp songs. Badly.

We hope you'll find our home a great place to sing badly, breathe deeply, and make wonderful memories, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a large family reunion and this house essentially has 4 living rooms (one is part of a sleeping area but I'm counting it as it's set up as another living room!) plus a game room for people to spread out in! It also has a HUGE deck. The house was very clean and nicely furnished with lovely Adirondack elements and touches and is in a beautiful area in the mountains. The owners are VERY nice to deal with and also accommodating and thoughtful. Highly recommended!

Such a welcoming and warm house! Close to everything! My family and I had an amazing time! Sue was super helpful with absolutely everything! Even got a very sweet thank you note in the mail after our vacation. Would definitely recommend!

Spacious and Peaceful...

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a family or families to share. Very short drive to public beaches, many marinas to rent boats and small town of Bolton Landing. After spending time in the area we found this to be much better than the busy downtown which is only a 15-20 min drive. The house was very comfortable with plenty of amenities to make this truly a home away from home....

Great spot in Lake George

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described in the listing. The property owners provided plenty of recommendations and information prior to arrival, and were wonderful to work with. Close enough to the town of Bolton Landing and all of the restaurants and lake access while still being secluded. My friends and I had a wonderful experience, and would gladly stay here again on a future trip to the area.

Beautiful house and property

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I rented this property with 3 other couples to attend Americade. We were very impressed from the minute we pulled up. There was plenty of parking for all of us even with bike trailers. The inside of the house is decorated perfectly with it's location. It is very spacious and cozy at the same time. We loved spending time on the deck relaxing. Again we loved the deck and how spacious it was. There was plenty of sleeping areas to choose from and felt we all had plenty of room.

The owners were great from the start. Once I inquired about the property they got back to me in a very timely manner. They were very helpful and any question that I did have they answered and helped in any way they could.

Everyone in our group said to come back next year and that the house was perfect. Thank you again for letting us stay at your property. You helped make it a very memorable experience and made lots of memories with our friends.

Thanks again Sue and Don!

Owner's Response: We are so, SO happy you and your group had such a great time here! This property is just that: spacious and cozy at the same time -- as impossible as that seems. When we bought this place we definitely wanted a no-fuss house -- a place you could come in with pine needles on your feet, and so what! Just sweep 'em out! We really appreciate that you got the vibe of our cabin so well, and will welcome you back next year gladly!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing for a group of 7 but would definitely be comfortable with more people as noted in the description. We had a lot of fun utilizing the ping pong table, grill, and the fire pit. Amazing stay and would highly recommend it.

Great for a large group or multiple families, responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of adults in the area for an active weekend in fall. Sue and Don were very friendly and communicative throughout the rental process, and everything in the house was exactly as stated/expected. There was plenty of space for all of us to spread out across the three levels, and the nooks and crannies of the house were really neat. Easy access from Rt. 87 and close to the town. The beach is just minutes away by car. As others have said, the engagement with the owners was top-notch and the guidebook to area restaurants and sights was helpful and up-to-date, not just a big book of menus collected from town. We highly recommend!
