About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8).

'That Red House' is a custom built, lakeside home. The house design is eclectic and unique with both modern and Adirondack decor. The Great room is open and airy with cathedral ceiling, surrounded by numerous windows with an unobstructed view of Black Mountain to the south. Teak wood and tile floors run throughout the house.

The gourmet kitchen, fully stocked with cooking implements, dishes, and cookware for any meal, is adjacent to the Great Room, the cook is never left out of the action! Nearby is a wet bar, dining area and powder room.

There is a 15' X 20' deck, accessed from the Great Room and master bedroom, is perfect for simply relaxing or enjoying a meal with views of beautiful Lake George just 75' away. As well, we have a covered Adirondack porch 7' X 16' which offers privacy and a spectacular view of the lake to the south.

The Master bedroom/bath is on the main floor with a large tile shower, washer/dryer and an over sized sliding glass door to the deck. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, both with a view of the lake, are located on the lower level as well as a large recreation area, triple bunk bed and a second full bath. A sliding glass door provides access to the lower sitting area complete with Adirondack chairs, a fire pit and a view of the lake.

We are part of an association which boasts a large deep water U-shaped dock with a slip available for a boat up to 20 feet in length. As well, we have 6-8 kayaks for our guests use, along with two, recently purchased, kid sized kayaks. Swimming off the deep water dock is a breeze due to two sturdy ladders making it easy to get in and out of beautiful Lake George. Guests with small children may wish to visit the town beach. Gull Bay town beach is a five minute drive from the house and is located in Gull Bay. It is a clean and quiet sandy beach that slopes gently into the water.

About Marta Kolman

As a child, I spent my summers in a boys camp that my Father ran for many years. Although I loved the lake and all the water activities, I did not like being the only girl in the camp (besides my mother)! Since that time, it became a fantasy of mine to have my own spot on Lake George. Having this home has far exceeded my wildest dreams. I cherish every moment I have on Lake George and cannot believe my good fortune. I love being able to share my dream & joy with people who value and appreciate Lake George and the Adirondack mountains, as I do.

Marta Kolman purchased this house in 2010

Why Marta Kolman chose Putnam Station

As Thomas Jefferson once wrote to his daughter.., "Lake George is, without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw...," says it all!

What makes this house unique

We designed & built our home to capture the natural beauty of Lake George and the surrounding mountains whether it be from the great room or from the decks. We have focused our efforts on providing many modern amenities for our guests to make their experience that much richer and memorable.

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with the Red House on Lake George the moment I saw it on VRBO, and spent a year fantasizing about my vacation with my family. Our week on the lake exceeded my very high expectations, the result of the many exceptional reviews and photos posted on VRBO. The reviews are all well deserved as Marta has gone to great lengths to create a beautiful, warm, inviting home. The views of the lake and mountains are truly breathtaking, and lounging, swimming, fishing, and kayaking on the lake from the dock was pure bliss. The marina across the way that Marta recommended could not have been more accommodating, and my son-in-law could not resist the temptation to extend our boat rental from 3 to 5 days, and so we added sightseeing on the lake and tubing to our list of daily recreation. Other highlights of our days were preparing meals in Marta’s gourmet kitchen, sipping early morning coffee while lounging on one of 3 decks, dining on yet another deck while taking in the gorgeous sunsets, and sitting around the campfire while counting shooting stars in the night sky. Not a day went by without a family member uttering, “This is the best vacation ever!” Needless to say we departed the Red House with many fond memories and hopes of returning to create yet more. Many thanks to Marta, Tim, and Lu Lu!

Beautiful spot and views!

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sister and I always do our annual girls getaway during this time of the year. This year we picked That Red House and we were very happy we chose this beautiful spot on Lake George. Marta was a dream to work with throughout our stay. This house was immaculate and very well appointed. The beds were a dream and all of the decks were furnished for comfort to take in the views! We saw a fox 🦊? when we were at the fire pit one evening! Thank you to the Kolman’s for providing this beautiful property that we enjoyed tremendously! 🌲?🔥?

Marta, the owner, has thought of everything to make your stay amazing! You feel like you’re at home. The views are amazing and I loved getting up everyday to kayak on Lake George while my boys fished and swam.

Fabulous Lakeside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time here! Owner really goes out of their way to make you feel at home. They provide extensive information about local amenities and their home prior to your stay. Home was very clean and well stocked. Home layout is very nice and family friendly. Fire pit w/Adirondack chairs was ideal for night time campfires and smores. Private dock allows for easy lake access. Home is remote (nearest grocery store approx. 15 minute drive) so I suggest going to the grocery store prior to your arrival to stock up. I found that the remoteness made all of us unplug from the electronics more and really spend quality family time. This was priceless! I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay on North Lake George.
