Picture perfect get away.
Such a beautiful home with everything you need. Beautiful private property and all the amenities you can ask for away from your own home to feel comfortable. The view was so relaxing and being able to take the canoes out on the lake was an awesome added bonus. I wished we had booked a longer trip. Don’t think twice about booking this place just book it, it’s worth it.
Heaven on the Lake
If you’re looking to visit Lake George or Saratoga but don’t want to stay in the touristy areas, look no further. The Soka Lake House is one of the best VRBOs we’ve ever booked!
The location is so convenient to 87, yet feels secluded and peaceful. The lake views are even better than being right on the lakefront, you can look down across the lake through a frame of beautiful trees and foliage.
The property itself is SO well stocked, I didn’t have to bring much of what I did. Full array of kitchen supplies, paper products, stuff for the lake...seriously, even olive oil! You don’t need to bring anything but yourself, food, and your clothing/toiletries.
Troy is an incredibly responsive, communicative host and you can tell the property is loved and cared for immaculately. We will be back! I’d say next year, but maybe even sooner, who knows :)
This is a great property to get away and relax . Troy is also great to work with.
Nice quiet lake and so relaxing.
The house was easy to get to, in a quiet spot. The House was perfect for our family, plenty of room. We were provided everything we need( linens, blankets, towels etc). The House is beautiful and comfortable and we all were really sad to leave. We went swimming and boating in the lake everyday. It's a home away from home. Troy was quick to help us when we contacted him. Also the laundry room was a huge necessity with all the clothes and towels we used, 5 star stay for sure
Vacation Happy Place
We LOVED vacationing at the Soka Boat House! The house was beautiful, clean, and spacious. We enjoyed spending time at the lake fishing, canoeing, kayaking and enjoying the view and peacefulness. The kids loved taking the golf cart on rides to see the nearby horses at the ranch. Preparing meals in the state of the art kitchen was a pleasure...even while on vacation! Meals were enjoyed at the picnic tables outside or at the large table in the house. We loved family game nights in the large family room overlooking the lake. At night we gathered around the fire pit to toast marshmallows, sing songs and plan the next days activities. One of my favorite pastimes was enjoying coffee on the Adirondack gliders first thing in the morning......overlooking the lake, listening to the birds and enjoying being on vacation. Our family and friends enjoyed being on vacation with us in Lake George and especially loved this rental property. We would definitely rent from Troy Soka again!!
Thank you Donna for that wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed the house and had fun vacation.
I'd give 6 out of 5 stars for location if I could.
If you can imagine the perfect Adirondack experience by a lake...this is it. You could just stay by the lake for days. However if you are interested in hiking or explore different parts of the park it's minutes away. We headed to Lake Placid for a day trip which is just an hour and twenty minutes away. Along the way there a number of places to stop to enjoy views or go on hikes.
Bolton Landing is a great place to grab dinner and or a drink. Check out the Sagamore resort for some serious views and a bite.
Back to the house. Amazing! As I said a great Adirondack experience. The master has a nice little deck where you can enjoy coffee in the morning. A great firepit where you have a view of the lake as you toast marshmallows. Something we did every night. We didnt want to leave.
You wont regret a trip here except when it's time to go back to the real world.
