A farm from yesterday. Tree lined open fields, trails and mountain views in a place where it's 'almost heaven'. Please consider reading the positive 'reviews' about our other vacation rentals listed with vrbo. and know that we strive for same quality at each of our homes. They are # 300732, # 459630, 592223, 879232, 875106,599054,571641. CLOSE TO THE SKI CENTERS, AS WELL...........................................................
My husband, Kent, and I have raised our four children here and now we're really excited about sharing this beautiful place with others. It doesn't get any better than this!
Owner/Manager Glenda Duell purchased this farmhouse in 1987
This property has it all. It's private and one can stay here all day and enjoy the surrounding nature or within minutes be in the middle of all the attractions. Please check out the great reviews of our 2 other properties at vrbo # 300732 and # 459630. We promise to take the same care for our guests here, too. Glenda
We just installed a new inground swimming pool as the finishing touch to this already perfect getaway!
Every year, a big group of friends from college get together for a weekend during the summer. This summer we chose to rent this cabin and we made the absolute right choice. The property was huge, clean, well-equipped, and had a ton of rustic character. We spent the weekend cooking meals - and we were excited that there was enough seating for all 11 of us to sit and dine together both inside and outside. The sleeping spaces were expansive and well appreciated - there were three bathrooms so none of us ever felt cramped. We also spent time playing lawn games, swimming in the pool, having bonfires, playing cards, reading on the wrap around porch, and jogging and biking nearby. The owner was very attentive and all of our needs were met - even in the little things like swim towels, decks of cards, and a crockpot! This weekend will give us happy memories for decades.
The house was nice from the outside but really dark and cluttered inside, full of “antique” but useless furniture. It is also far from most Lake George attractions. Flies were everywhere when we got there, despite the owner being in the house at that time. There was no wireless service in the house but there is wifi, which we had to look for and eventually found inside one of the bedrooms (password was located underneath the unit). The floor of the pool was slimy, there was not enough cookware and utensils in the kitchen. We had to ask for more gas since there was only a little in the tank and we had to provide for paper towels and toilet paper as there was not enough for our 3 days stay. We paid for 4 days but stayed only for 3 due to a change in plans but we were okay not staying the entire time as there is really nothing special about the house and the location.
Great experience. Will recommend. We hope to come back.we were here for five days.We should have come for ten.
pros: nice outdoor property in a pretty setting. Gazebo, campfire site, nice pool. Roomy house with air conditioning, and it was hot!
Cons: No phone line or cell service (verizon or sprint), which was not disclosed in VRBO listing, but neither was indoor plumbing and electricity. We feel phone is a modern utility reasonably expected. Also its a huge safety issue because you can't call 911, No way to call for reservations at area attractions or restaurants either. House has land line but owner/manager refused to connect it. No smoke detectors! House is old! Renter beware!
Owner/manager wasn"t available for her tenants. No way to contact her (see above phone issue), No welcome book of instructions for how to connect to the spotty wifi, deal with the trash (12 people for a week make a lot!), or any other issue that might arise. The phone number with the VRBO listing connects to a fax, and the second number we obtained for a t mobile cell was not in service. Even if we could reach her, she couldn't call back!
House is run down. Plumbing needs work! Master bath toilet doesnt fill automatically any more. Shower in first floor bath sprays water from the faucets everywhere. Upstairs hall bath sink is coming off the wall. Kitchen sink leaks. The one good sized pot the kitchen has is under there to catch the dripping water.
There were inadequate pots and pans to meet the needs of a group our size.
Many of the beds mattresses needed to be replaced. The springs were sprung.
We were disappointed with our experience and wouldn't recommend this place especially at its price.. We've stayed at other Adirondack rentals and had much better experiences with the homes and the managers.
I generally do not write reviews, but after reading that one negative review, I feel the need to respond. This home is a wonderful place to stay. We are a 4 generation family and had an amazing long weekend together. The home is clean and very comfortable. Everywhere we turned there was something lovely to explore. The 5 children of all different ages had a great time being together. We are planning on returning this summer and now there will be 7 children (2 more additions this past year), as well as an extended family of parents, grandparents and even a great grandma (14 of us all together). We feel so fortunate to have found such a lovely place for all of us to be together and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Nice and cozy house with a lot of space. We stayed there in January and the house was very warm, the hot water was hot and plenty for 11 people.
Owners were friendly and helpful.
