A 5 star house for families !

  • 5 of 5

After spending a couple of days in New York city with the family we spent a week in this fantastic house. After a warm welcome and a guided tour from the owners we felt "at home" immediately. All luxury that was announced on the vacationrental website was there and the house was super clean. The spectacular view over Swan Lake early in the morning is unforgetable. The boats, the grill, the games in the game room, ... everything is there and makes it so easy to enjoy a holiday upstate. Certainly a place to visit again!!

Great spot- accessible for Family reunion activities in Liberty.

  • 4 of 5

The house was well appointed and large enough for 8 adults. My daughter and her husband found the futon uncomfortable in the 4th 'bedroom' but had packed their inflatable Queen size mattress.

Negotiating the front lawn was tricky since geese also visited. The weather was rainy for most of our stay but we made use of the ping- pong and pool tables as well as our traditional card and board games. The sun came out Sunday afternoon so the canoe, paddle boat and rowboat were used.

WiFi was tricky and cell service was intermittent.

Overall, our gang enjoyed our short 2017 Family vacation.

Owner's Response: Kathleen, Thanks for your nice review. Just to clarify, the futon is typically used by children, so I can understand why an adult couple would be uncomfortable. For adults to sleep in that 4th bedroom we provide the 18" high, Queen size inflatable bed/mattress that is kept in the closet of that bedroom. Your daughter and her husband could have alternatively used the Queen size pull out sofa-bed which is very comfortable, and it is located in the Living Room, which has locking doors for privacy and expands the total sleeping capacity of the house to 11. I regret you had to share the front lawn with uninvited geese. I guess they feel entitled to enjoy the lakefront as much as we do, since they are native to the area. Hopefully you balanced that bad experience with some excitement provided by the also native Bald Eagle family, the local beaver and river otter families and some of the other amazing "neighbors" we share the property with. As for the weather, I am sorry it was rainy. The WiFi service by Time Warner Cable (now Spectrum) is usually extremely reliable at the house and while I am surprised you had intermittent service, it could have been related to the bad weather you experienced. I hope to host you again in the future so we can have the opportunity to earn your 5 star rating.

Very nice property, very clean

  • 5 of 5

Great time at this house despite very bad weather. Great for outdoor time, visiting farms close by. Would have loved to get a bit more flexibility on departure time as we had to leave at 11:30 on Sunday. As we arrived late on Friday night this was a short week end.
