About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 8 Sleeps

We are now taking reservations for the Winter Ski/Snowmobile season & the Spring of 2018!!

Please check our calendar for available dates.

Yes, you can bring your boat, and yes we are directly on the water!

This Cottage is on the east side of Lake George in the sought out shallower area of Sandy Bay. We are located on the Cleverdale peninsula, 1 mile north of the Cleverdale Country store on the water.

There are always fun events taking place in the north country during this season, don't miss out!! If you haven't been here in the Fall it's a must!

Many of our guests have been with us for 12+ years and we are so looking forward to another great year!

Boat, float, kayak, bike, hike, fish or just RELAX!!! We are in the perfect spot!!

Our cottage has an open floor plan, with one full bath with a tub.

We have central air/heating throughout along with ceiling fans in all the rooms.

The Kitchen is roomy and NEW with lots of counter space, a unique center island featuring an inlay of our pristine Lake George, a perfect gathering spot with bar stools. Our guests have expressed excitement in using it as their perfect board game location!!!

The Living/Family Room and kitchen are open and spacious.

We have Cable and Wireless High Speed Internet also for your enjoyment as well as a large flat screen TV.

There are 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen beds in each, 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds. An Adirondack style futon (full/queen) offers additional sleeping for 2 located in the sunroom, a favorite spot for many!

Enjoy the views of Sandy Bay and Lake George from the sun room while dining, playing cards, or reading. Windows surround this entire area giving light and incredible views. Watching the boats coming in and out of the bay with the mountains as a backdrop is always a treat.

We have a gas grill for your use along with an outdoor chiminea for evening campfires and roasting marshmallows. Or simply sit back and star gaze! There are always shooting stars here, in the Adirondacks. If there are fireworks in Bolton Landing, or at the Sagamore, you will be able to see them from the deck or at the lakefront.

Sit outside on the deck in our swing chairs or at the picnic table and enjoy the incredible views of the lake looking across to Dome Island and the Sagamore Hotel.

Our cottage is ideal for families with children and adults because of the large expanse of lawn which provides plenty of play area both near and away from the water. You can sit or fish off our dock which

extends into the beautiful Sandy Bay. (That's right It's all Sand,

No mud or weeds) The fact that the crystal clear water has been

rated one of the cleanest lakes in the world enhances the


From the dock there are steps that lead into a shallow,

sandy area which provides an excellent area for young children to

swim and play. You can walk right into the water, as it is shallow and rockless making it a great spot to stand or float all day long!!

We offer lounge chairs and a picnic table at the lakefront for guests to enjoy as well. If your not able to bring your own kayak, we do have 2 on the property for use within the bay only.

It's been referred to as 'a little piece of Heaven' by many of our guests! We believe it is.

Let us know if you have any questions, and we will be more than happy to answer them. Hope to see you soon!!!

Best place on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Best not only for the view , but swimming ,paddle boarding,and kayaking etc . The lawn is spacious for a game of cornhole or even bocci .

We love the view so much we eat dinner out on the back deck ,and always love to sit out in the am with our coffee .

This place is so cool with all the accents of the lake throughout the cottage. If you had to spend time indoors it's so cozy and unique .

beautiful home and property amazing views

  • 5 of 5

What a week we had. The weather was beautiful, one of the nicest locations we have stayed at. The grounds are so nice, the water is crystal clear and sandy no weeds. Our little ones had the best time fishing, playing in the water, swimming, kayaking. The house is really cool, kitchen looks brand new, there's a really cool inset of the lake right in the kitchen counter. Very comfortable. I think we found our place for next year and years to come...

Cottage at Lake George

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well maintained, comfortable and has all the necessities for a stay at Lake George with a few friends or family. We were there during Americade, and while it's convenient to LGV, it was also sufficiently distant to avoid the crowds and accompanying noise. The owners were nearby and answered our questions (restaurants, stores, etc).

We were a group of four, and each of us were pleased with the cottage.

Beautiful Backyard

  • 4 of 5

My sister's family and I had a wonderful, relaxing vacation with three young children in Nancy's cozy cabin in Cleverdale. The cabin was left spotless with the air conditioner and fans running to ensure a comfortable arrival. Shortly after packing, Nancy came over (she lives next door) to answer any questions (my son had several) and give us some tips on what we can do in the area.

The cabin space suited our taste, as it was large enough to have our own sleeping space, but small enough to enjoy time together. The shelves were well-stocked with board games to help us through the three rainy days there. Also, the T.V. has been upgraded to a larger screen than in the pics. We made lots of use of the kitchen, which provided high-end pots and pans and good, Italian spices. There was plenty of room to eat both indoors and outdoors. The best part of this place is its location right on the bay; we found ourselves walking out there at least twice a day. Although we got some strange looks playing next to the speedboats, it was fun for our small children just to splash around and cool off. Nancy also offered her two-person kayak which was a great experience. Reflecting back, we had an overall great trip. Any pitfalls involved the plumbing situation and the electricity. We aren't used to only flushing when necessary, so it was awkward and there was one plumbing issue. The only time the electricity went out on us was our last day packing. Unbeknownst to us, Nancy later told us that they have a generator in such emergencies. It didn't affect our trip, but we were told that it goes out quite often. Other than those issues, great location and friendly people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to this cottage for almost 11 years now, for one week in the summer. We will never give up our week!!! This is truly an amazing spot, and our family has grown and we are thankful to Nancy & John for the hospitality and friendship over all these year!! We look forward to boating and floating, and this is the only spot we want to be! We love the weekend getaways off season if the cottage is open, and the view never gets old!!!!
