This condo is located on Tripp Lake in Chestertown,NY, less than 20 minutes from Mt.Gore and Lake George. Within the condo there are 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a kitchen, and plenty of living space . During the winter, enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice fishing and more. During the summer activities include direct lake and boat access, tennis courts, hiking, fishing, antiquing, swimming, nearby amusement parks, zip-lining and rafting centers
Finish the day with a BBQ on the open view patio or by the still water of the lake.
Make your reservations early!
We now know that each unit has its own rules and regulations and its own board. Since we stayed in a condo floor level we had a nice fire pit each night. I guess the rule for all is that if there’s a deck and no patio then no fire pit. I used the grill and got in some trouble but worked out.
Good think is that there are two way to beach. Long path and stairs. His unit is directly in front of the stairs so go out down straight to beach and the beach is what makes everything so worth it.
It’s truly beautiful and chairs with umbrellas, kayaks, paddleboats, canoes, rowboats, even kids toys all free!!!! With life guard on duty. The swimming area has two docks to dive from and it’s just magnificent and I would not mind at all not going anywhere in Lake George and just take kids every day to the beach.
Overall everything was clean and tidy. Since I knew from last year that fans don’t do the trick , I brought 2 portable ac units which helped only that there are no windows except by living room.
There are two opening skylights out of 3 in first bedroom with two twins so I had fans blowing from them which helped a lot.
The master skylight is in a long tunnel about 8 feet up and even when opened doesn’t give air so not much good. There are no stand up fans either so hopefully the owner will supply some as we only had a small square plastic and two really small ones. Also a fan over master bedroom would be good so sucks in air from skylight which is only and 20x20.
There is also something important to know. The only access to the home is from either a driveway on left or right. it’s pretty much right in middle but only accessible from back and up flight stairs. You will be carrying luggage a long way and up a flight so make sure everything has wheels and someone strong enough to carry it. I found a wheelbarrow and used that , otherwise would have taken a very very long time. If the owner would supply a wagon or something, would be really good. Also good thing I had bungee cords.
I also told the owner that it was annoying constantly switching the only 1 hdmi cable from tv to dvd so hopefully she will get more. Would also be nice having a dvd in each room though each room does have a tv.
Overall to me the beach makes everything worth it and you really don’t spend sooo much time indoors.
It’s a homey cozy place and you will definitely enjoy it so if you ask me its worth every penny!
Pros: Love the location. Down a flight of stairs (albeit VERY steep) to the beach where there were free boats/kayaks to take out on the lake. Quiet location. Swimming was great. Grill was nice to use.
Cons: Unfortunately, during our stay, the house was ridiculously hot. There is no AC in the house and only 2 small fans and one large fan to use. Compounding that, there are no windows to open on the second floor of the house to cool it down at night. Easily into the 90s on the second floor. We were very uncomfortable. Given the variability of the weather, I would not stay here again bc we could not risk it.
We really enjoyed our short vacation in Green Mansions, I wish I had more time to spend in this wonderful condo. We found it very clean and well equipped.There's a lake with a beautiful beach close to the condo where we enjoyed with my family doing Kayak. The property is on a very nice and quite place where we could breath fresh air and relax. I will definitively come back next year.
I was surprised to find that the condo was located just up from Tripp Lake and that it had an awesome deck as well. I stayed there with my sisters before my wedding and it was just perfect. The property was very clean and had everything we needed! No AC wasn't an issue as the skylights provided a comfortable breeze for a July evening. I would highly recommend this property.
Overall, the property was great. Three full, separate bedrooms and 2.5 baths which was great for the family. The condo was secluded and looked out onto a small lake. The lake was great for my kids who loved swimming, jumping off the dock, and taking out the kayak and canoe (free to guests). Having a private grill and full kitchen was awesome for eating in and saving money. Lake George and other attractions were 15 minutes by car, so you should know that going in. However, the ride was super easy and worked for us, as we wanted to avoid the crowds and noise at night. The owners were always quick to respond during the planning of the trip and were very accommodating by email and messaging.
One drawback for us was the heat. There was no air conditioning. We happened to be there during one of the hottest weeks in the summer and certainly could have used AC. It was difficult to sleep upstairs. We did speak to a neighbor who spends all summer there who said our weather was very out of the ordinary and not typical. She said we happened to be there on the hottest few days she could remember. I'm sure usually, the breeze is just fine to cool things down.
We would certainly return and enjoyed our time at this property.
We went for the weekend for a concert in SPAC. The drive was pretty easy! I love the view and walk to the beach, it was beautiful. The interior of the cabin could use some up keeping. The house was a little dirty and dusty. The wifi code was incorrect and the carbon monoxide batteries were out so the monitor beeped. The full size bed downstairs was challenging for 2 people to sleep on and uncomfortable. The queen upstairs was fine. The electrical shorted to the basement- tv and lights kept shorting out. Overall, it was a nice stay, good neighbors and affordable :)
