About Ken W
After spending childhood vacations at both the jersey shore and the Adirondacks, I fell in love with the mountains and lakes. My friends parents had homes on Lake George and Upper Saranac. When I began looking for my weekend getaway, I did not want to travel 5 hours to the Saranac area every weekend. Lake George was only 3 hours from NJ, but the homes I could afford were on small lots with shared docks and did not offer any privacy. Venturing out from camping in Lake Luzerne one year, I had driven over to the dam and saw only that portion of the Great Sacandaga Lake, but that was all it took to peak my interest. In February 1993 after looking at just 8 homes on the Sacandaga, I knew that I had to have this home even though it was at the top end of my budget.
Ken W purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1993
Why Ken W chose Hadley
Location, Location, Location! This house is on what many locals refer to as 'The Boardwalk and Park Place of the Sacandaga' because it is on one of the very few dead end streets that front on the lake. Many Sacandaga houses are on the main road, most of which are across from the lake and on the main road, making them 'Lakefront Homes' with their own beach and dock across a busy road - not child or elderly friendly at all....this home is 'Lake Side' meaning no street to cross to get to the lake....also alot quieter and more private. This part of the lake offers deep water, which is great for boats and swimming off the dock.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Private yet conveniently located. View of the lake from the deck, living room, kitchen, and master bedroom. 50' of direct lake front on deep water with a large dock. Fire pit, patio, gas and charcoal grills, Tavern room with wet bar. Plenty of living and private space. Plenty of parking in the driveway. To get to the lake simply walk down the stairs from the front yard, or load up your ATV or car with the days supplies, and drive down the dirt lane in front of the house....Marinas close by for boat launching or rentals: 3 miles away is the Majestic Mountain Marina 518-696-3727 and 13 miles away is Edinburg Marina 518-863-8398 or for river action, whitewater rafting and kayaking, Sacandaga Outdoor Center is only 7 miles away, call them to find out current hours and rates 518-696-5710

Manager was very friendly and helpful. I like the milkweed garden with monarch caterpillars. Lower stairs to water dock was in need of repair, you had to be very careful descending. The master bedroom was beautiful and the big deck was great but could use patio furniture, we had to keep moving chairs from patio to deck and back. The weather was great and we enjoyed our stay.
Our family get together
For the past 6 years our family has gotten together at pine ridge and our whole family loves it
We look forward to our time there with wonderful accommodations and direct lake shore access
Thanks to you Ken
While the house is very nice, it lacks upkeep something fierce. When we arrived, the cleaning lady was there, said she was just finishing up the last bed. Once she left, we entered the home, and when we walked into our room with bunk beds, there was a twin sheet thrown on the bottom bunk full size bed, with a bed spread thrown over it. The house was SO HOT, which we expected since there was not AC, but all the windows were left closed. We opened all of them to air it out, which it desperately needed, and the dust and cobwebs that were there was unbelievable!! When we walked downstairs, the smell of mold made it so difficult to breathe! I couldn't believe it! It made it so difficult to sleep down there. I couldn't believe the amount of moisture present. We were never informed that there was a dehumidifier down there, and we found it the last night. It did help, but not nearly enough. Something needs to be done to fix that situation desperately.
The Laundry room smelled SO badly of cat urine!
The lake was beautiful!! We thoroughly enjoyed it very much! But the final steps to get down to the dock were falling over, so they were unusable. We did make the best of it, however, and were able to enjoy it anyway! It was truly gorgeous!
We were asked to put all the garbage at the top of the driveway in the storage boxes. When we went up there, there was garbage already in there, so there was no room for ours.
When we first arrived, the cleaning lady told us she left her information, so to call her or send her a FB message with anything we need. We tried to contact her several times, and there was no response at all. We finally called the owner at one point, and he did get back to us.
If the house gets taken care of much better, and better people are hired for cleaning, with some loving care, it would be a really nice place to stay!!
Great location, nice amenities, would definitely rent again.
We had great weather, and the house was spacious enough for a bunch of kids and adults. Nice dock for the kids to play on.(and adults!) Love the location on the lake, and the landlord and manager were extremely helpful!
Best time ever
My family loves the house the property and the lake
Beautiful place wonderful vacation
