About Owner/Manager Glenda Duell
I was born and raised in the Adirondack Mountains. I inherited this property, although my dad is still living and decided to downsize. My husband and I are middle aged and already owned a home, so we decided the vacation rental idea was a great option for us. We have 3 other properties currently on vrbo and they are # 300732, 459630 and 499745. Please consider reading the positive reviews from our guests and it's sure to put your mind at ease in deciding to choose your vacation time with us.
Owner/Manager Glenda Duell purchased this Cabin in 2001

Perfect for all ages
We skipped our first night due to rain.but arrived to a beautiful sunny day..a little swimming fishing and great family time. This is a bit rustic but very clean and the basket of extra toiletries was greatly appreciated. Having 2 separate houses allowed for infant and toddler naps. We did have a huge storm move in so put plan b into effect we went to the Painted Pony bbq and Rodeo a great time was had by all. We are a family of 7 months- 53 and everyone had a great time. If we had thought it through we would have tried to add an extra day. However only being an hour 1/2 from home this will be on our list for another get away. The only thing I would suggest is to get some kind of ozone machine. The main house smells musty and stale but we purchased some airfresheners. I would also suggest bringing your own pillow. A big plus was the shower was amazing strong pressure and plenty of hot water. We would definitely recommend this for everyone.
Our team is so happy you had an enjoyable stay. The waterfront is the greatest plus of this property. As for any smell, it has been attributed to the campfire smoke. If any doors or windows are open or if the fire smoke goes through the air conditioners it can create that. It is offered as "camping" so it's hard to balance that. Not sure about the pillows as we provide them as part of the bedding. Again, thanks so much and I hope you will consider a revisit soon. It's beautiful here in the Adirondacks in the fall. Glenda
Great relaxing environment
We are a supportive living program and our individuals wanted to take a camping trip and I came across this property that would accommodate everyone. We had 14 people all together and our individuals said they had a wonderful time. It was perfect for us and we hope to plan another vacation here with them again. We also checked out their other property next door and that was a beautiful house as well and we might try to stay there next time. Everything you need is in these cabins! Thanks again for everything we had a great time!
So happy to read that your group had a great time. Our crew works very hard to accomplish this goal and I do share the stories with them. Please do consider a revisit in any one of our 12 properties.. Thank you so much. Glenda
Horrible experience with this house
The definition of a vacation house should be comfortable, clean, safe and functional. But this house provided none of them to me and my family.
There were maybe millions of mosquitoes outside of the house, but the house doesn't have window shields which we can't open the windows to get fresh air in ( inside the house smells really bad with all the carpets, old wood wall, cabinet and furnitures)
We tried to turn on the AC units in two bedrooms and one on the hallway (super tiny house). The circuit breaker jump 5 times within 2 hours. The breaker is located outside the house( feels like in the middle of nowhere)
The owner listed the house can sleep 14 people. Two bedrooms in the main cabin and one bedroom in the small cabin. Top of the bunkbed is very close to the ceiling (18") which you can smell the ceiling tile, face to face to mosquitoes and spiders. The queens size bed in the "master bedroom" which later found BEDBUGS. (one of my family member got bitten)
The portable AC for the small Cabin is full of dust and dry leaves. Not enough hot water for two people to take shower in a road( the owner claims she cleans the house for the last 3 days)
The owner didn't provide wifi password once we get there. ( we figured out ourselves)
Called the owner to report our situation the next early morning, she didn't call back until 5pm in the evening (how nice)
Me and my family need to leave the next day morning even I rented two nights. We just can't stay any longer. We all suffering. Thank you to this " vacation house" owner for ruining our short vacation get away.
I hope this will help other people out.
Great get away with a group of friends!
The property has everything you need for a long weekend get away with friends and isn't far from town and Adirondack tubing adventures!
Not quite as advertised!
Think of it as camping with access to a bed and bathroom( with a door that does not shut and a toilet that only flushed 2/3 times before you had to open the tank and reset the lever) You have to have a fire on all the time outside to smoke away the mosquitoes. I realize that they are part of nature, but a heads up from the owner would have been helpful. They swarmed you each time you got out of a car or came out of the house. Refrigerator and kitchen counters were clean but the items in the cabinets were 50/50 as to being clean. Mouse droppings on stove etc. the view is pretty but note there is s highway right across the river so don't expect solitude. Glenda was nice when you could reach her... we didn't know the wifi password the night/day so only had one phone that worked( no ATT) service at the location. She does not respond to email or to the phone number posted on the VRBO site....we couldn't access her cell phone without wifi....! We only had 4 people and used the large cabin (trailer home) pictured. No way could it sleep 8... if you had opened the sofa bed the guests in the right side bedroom with the double bunk would have had to climb over the sofa bed to get to the bathroom or kitchen. Note that mattress in the lower bunk was so used my son in law said he was about 6" lower than my daughter on the other side of the mattress. This place needs some TLC throughout. With that and a less wet season for mosquitoes it could be a really nice place.
A nice quiet cabin a short drive from Lake George
We stayed here during July 4 weekend. It was a good, quiet spot away from the crowds around Lake George. Unfortunately, it was a warm few days after a cooler week, so the mosquitoes were pretty vicious. Also, there was a huge amount of rainfall the day we arrived, so the river was 10x it's usual volume, which meant no wading and bad fishing. The fire pit was a savior when it came to the bugs.
We had a family of 3 in the smaller cabin and two couples in the larger plus a toddler, an infant, and two dogs. The property was at capacity with our group, so I feel like the claimed capacity of 14 is inflated.
Finally, the cabins need a bit of maintenance. The stove/oven in the larger cabin needs repair, but mostly still works. The one in the smaller cabin was not even plugged in, and didn't have an outlet installed, just unterminated electrical wiring. The wifi did not function when we arrived, but was fixed by our final day at the cabins. This was pretty inconvenient since cell service is spotty and we hoped to do our day to day planning after we arrived.
I wish there were more detailed instructions for arrival and what is expected as far as cleanup. We did very basic cleaning and no laundry, and got our full deposit returned.
The cabins are well furnished with cookware and linens, including beach towels. It is a good place to bring dogs.
Overall, we did enjoy our stay. The location is great, and the price is right. We will definitely consider renting again!
Thank you for you're balanced and honest review. The cook stove was replaced and the wiring completed on the other one. I have spoke to maintenance about my concerns of both. It should have been dealt with sooner. My apologies. You're also so right about the excessive rain and misquitos. We have a fog machine and do use it, however, overuse isn't good either. So happy that you enjoyed your stay and please do revisit. The Adirondacks are beautiful in the fall. Glenda
