Overview

About the property

The Cottage at Green Pond is a cozy, rustic cottage located on a private, peaceful mountain lake (no motorboats). Just steps away from the lake, there's no better setting to enjoy your favorite water sports -- swimming, fishing, or boating. Or, just relax on the screened in porch, on the deck overlooking the water or soak up the sun on the dock. The two bedrooms offer a queen bed and in the other bedroom a twin and full size beds. Three kayaks, a canoe, rowboat and paddle boat are available for you to use. At night, have a fire in the outdoor fire pit and roast marshmallows.

About Ben Baker, Sally Baker

The cottage was purchased by our grandparents in 1963 and has been enjoyed by our family ever since. It's our little piece of paradise, perfect to get away and relax.

Why Ben Baker, Sally Baker chose Capital Saratoga

Quiet location with about 16 cottages on the lake. Perfect for relaxation. For families with children this is a great place to swim and to fish. You can catch a sunfish (guaranteed) right off the end of the dock or jump in a boat and catch some bass! Going out early in the morning with a cup of coffee on the lake in a kayak, just floating around is a great way to start the day, or to end the day

What makes this cabin unique

Memories are made at Green Pond. The simplicity with the amenities of a home make this a great place to recharge and unplug.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second visit to Green Pond. We had a very relaxing time. We thing our dog, Maya, is beginning to like the canoe! Many species of birds again this summer – new to our list for here, is the Double Crested Cormorant and Red-Breasted Nut Hatches.



Thank you for sharing such a special place.

My new favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is heaven on earth! We had such a fun and relaxing stay at Green Pond. We visited Merck Forest and did lots of hiking and also checked out the local rail trail and made a quick stop in Manchester for some lunch one day. Other than that we pretty much stayed at the camp because we didn't want to leave! It rained a bit but that was fine by us because it gave us a chance to read and relax and play some great games! When it wasn't raining we were out in the canoe and kayaks with our pup Loki. Loki loved jumping off the dock and swimming around to retrieve tennis balls. The water is nice and clean and clear and there are lots of fishes to see!

The camp is nice and secluded and isn't on a main road which was nice. It was very quiet and very peaceful. The fire pit was fantastic too! The weather was a bit cold at night and so we were able to use the gas fireplace inside which made for a warm and cozy atmosphere. Ben and Sally really have thought of everything...anything you might need, they have it there! We were sad to leave but can't wait to visit again!

Perfect place to bring your lab!

  • 5 of 5

Green Pond was just what we wanted for a 3 day first vaca with our year old lab. Cottage was very cozy and homey and the kitchen has everything you need. Gas stove warmed us up on one very chilly night. Love having all the boat options available. We used the kayaks and the paddleboards.

Definitely would like to return!

Absolutely perfect for a quiet get away!

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need---kayaks, water toys, etc.! Cottage is steps from the water and just like home. Pond neighbors are friendly, too. Highly recommend

FYI---we have a two year old and this place was perfect so if you're wondering if this is a good vacation spot for young kids---for sure!

The cottage on Green Pond exceeded our expectations! Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

I always worry a little when booking a rental property online but after reading the reviews I gave it a shot. This cottage did not disappoint! This location was perfect. I thought I might miss being on a larger lake but that was not the case at all. Our 3 girls are in their 20's and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Spending time paddle boarding, kayaking, reading, and just being together!! I do have to say that the water guns they found made it even better! Thank you to the Baker family for sharing your home on Green Pond!!

Just Plain Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This rustic lake-side cabin had everything we needed, inside and out, for a fun, comfortable and relaxing week. There is easy access to Green Pond, a lovely, clean, calm small lake, for swimming and for paddling in a variety of small non-motorized craft.

We enjoyed grilling on the Weber gas grill on the deck, and found the kitchen well-equipped for indoor cooking as well. The screened porch provides a great place to eat or play games while enjoying the lake view and breezes, along with shelter from the occasional passing shower or insect.

The human and canine neighbors were friendly and mostly quiet (though we provoked several watchdogs to bark by kayaking past their docks!). We also enjoyed watching the comings and goings of two goose families, and listening to the riot of birdsong.

We particularly enjoyed our day at nearby Merck Forest and Farm (great trails, animals and farming projects to see, and a store for maple syrup and more). We also enjoyed driving around the Battenkill Valley, buying from the Creamery and other local farms and farmstands, and seeing 5 farms whose products I often buy at the Union Square Greenmarket in NYC.

And no matter what we did during the day, it was always delightful to have dinner while looking at Green Pond, and then having one last paddle around before dark.

Highly recommended.
