A short walk approximately 100 ft below brings you to a small picnic area on the water with a picnic table and chairs. The steps down to the water and the four swimming/boat docks now equaling 44 ft in length have been newly stained (24 ft of new docks just added May 2015). The end dock has a new swim ladder and edge cushions with attached buoys for easy mooring of your boat. A new dedicated heavy duty mooring buoy with a 1000 pound anchor was also placed recently for additional boats.

About Randy

Both my wife and I (Randy and Kathy) grew up in Scotia-Glenville and have raised two grown children, now both successful teachers in Science and Art. After a 34 year career at GE Research in Niskayuna, NY, I accepted a faculty position at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. I am also an Instructor and Senior Engineer at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

Randy purchased this house in 2013

Why Randy chose Capital Saratoga

Growing up with a camp (west of the lake house about 18 miles) on the Great Sacandaga Lake, has given us so many great memories. To find such a great home on the Great Sacandaga Lake was a dream come true for us. We plan to retire in five or so years and enjoy all it has to offer. Super quiet location, 2.5 acres of private land, 400 ft of water frontage only 100 or so feet away below on a very low traveled country road off the main road. The steps to the beach are short with a small picnic area with a table and dock.

What makes this house unique

This home was designed by a fellow GE engineer and it shows. The house is built with quality you just do not see. The granite dual fireplace, one in the Great Room, the other in the 20 x 22 ft vaulted Master Suite is a masterpiece and the cost was over $20K alone. Our only neighbors are on one side and have a magnificent home themselves and are wonderful people who also help us care for the home just as good neighbors. Our Lake house has been totally refurnished with high quality upgrades, new furniture, TV, etc.

Beautiful home and great area.

  • 5 of 5

Home was lovely and well stocked with everything you need. House has beautiful views and we loved the dock area. Plenty of room for our family of 7 adults and 2 little ones. Outside eating area was great and we ate meals out there most of time. Wonderful time!

Spacious, immaculate, comfortable house on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, immaculate, beautiful house on Lake Sacandaga. It was a pleasure not to have to bring linens and towels. Owners provided a fully stocked kitchen, soaps, tissues and even toiletries that you might have forgotten. Plenty of pillows, blankets and comfortable beds. Lake is huge and water is warm. Cool nights provided fun around the fire pit. No AC was needed even though it was available. Loved waking to the sound of ducks landing on the lake. Only drawback was the steep driveway that we had to climb going back and forth from the dock. Just shows how out of shape I have become! By the end of the week I got used to it. Great time in a beautiful home shared by caring owners.

Wonderful house and owners are fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so helpful and easy to work with throughout the booking process and our actual stay. I really can't say enough about how great they are. The house is even more impressive from what you see online. The rooms are so spacious and accommodated three families of all ages. There was always an area for someone to go if they wanted to be on their own. We ate most of our meals at home and there wasn't anything we needed that we didn't have. We used the outside deck at every meal. It was great having that first cup of coffee sitting on the deck looking out over the Lake. The yard area was great for the children to have some place to run around. Paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, hand soap, dishwasher soap and numerous other items were provided so much less for us to shop for at the grocery. Besides the deck, we spent most of our time on the dock. Beautiful to sit on the dock and just enjoy the sun, water and scenery. Very beautiful house! Very wonderful owners! Very relaxing vacation!!

LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5

I have not rented a house off the internet before, but with that said the rental of the house met all my expectations, and I am a fairly demanding individual. The house was exactly as described. It was in tip top shape and very clean upon our arrival. The master bedroom was very very nice, as were all bedrooms. The kitchen and the rest of the house were fully stocked; the wi-fi was excellent and there was a nice choice of DVDs for use. In short, all of the description listed was accurate and the owners were a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this rental without hesitation.

Thank you. Michael A. Cervini

Map

With great mountain and lake views, quiet seclusion with your own 400ft water front on 2.5 acres, it is an excellent vacation lake house to enjoy. Expansive granite fireplace in both the Great Room and Master Suite overlooking the lake and mountains. Enjoy time off on the very large deck with Gazebo, just off the kitchen-dinette area. The home sits majestically on a hill so views are plenty. Famous Saratoga Horse Track is 30 minutes away, as is equally famous Saratoga Springs. Great Escape Theme Park with rides, water park, etc is also 20-30 minutes away. Great dining is only 15 minutes way.
