All good, except check in was done at 5:30 PM due to late cleaning the property by the cleaning person.
Property is located close to beautiful Loon Lake with breathtaking views. House itself is poorly managed and needs some major updating. Kitchen ceiling is all stained from who knows what. Upstairs vanity faucet is splashing water all over the place the minute you turn it on. Downstairs bathroom door knob was falling apart, my husband had to tighten it, otherwise there was no way to lock the door. Be aware that bedroom #4 is located in basement and that had very moldy smell. All window seals are gross, full of dust and spider web. We didn't end up using basement at all. Also as was mentioned previously there is no AC on a property which was problematic on 90 degree weather days. We will be returning to Chestertown and Loon lake but not this property. For the amount of money they charge, door knob and faucet could have been fixed. Also to paint a ceiling on a kitchen is not that expensive. Cleanliness was okey, found some crumbs here and there. I do have to give them a credit for bedding, mattresses are clean and comfortable. There was also a short supply of towels.
Olga, thanks so much for leaving your valuable feedback. The homeowner would like to share the following:
"Thank you for the feedback on our home. We take to heart your feedback and want to ensure your concerns are addressed. Based on other feedback, we took bedroom #4 off-line until we are confident the dehumidifier situation remedies the musty odor. On hot days at the lake, which are rare, it is more difficult to manage. We do
have a plan in place to remedy this for next summer. Regarding the faucet, we thank you for raising the issue. This will be fixed immediately. The painting of the kitchen ceiling, this has been on the plan for when the house was free of guests for a one-week period due to fumes. Concerning the cleanliness, we have a superb cleaning service and based on other guests feedback, I hope this was an anomaly but we will be sure to monitor.
We are always happy to try and remedy issues immediately while guests are still there if it can be done without disruption. If not, we do so at the earliest opportunity. We have taken the property off the market for September for required maintenance after our busiest season ever. We take feedback and reviews very seriously to make our home comfortable for our guests. We hope you enjoy vacationing at Loon Lake for years to come- it is a special place."
Best, the Evolve Team
The property was fantastic and we all had a amazing stay, it gave us the perfect outdoor experience as well as cozy comfortable beds, the only thing is that the upstairs bedrooms got very hot because their was no air conditioning, the basement and first floor did however stay cool, besides that we loved our vacation and had a great time being in Chestertown because it was not far from Lake George.
Blue bay road
House looked a little more roomy in pictures. But with 5 ppl we managed to move around comfortably. We cooked, bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Upstairs bathroom was nice and clean. Everything was clean. There were a ton of gnats we couldnt figure out how they got in, however. Downstairs TV didnt turn on. We used the firepit. Overall a very relaxing stay. I would definitely reccomend!
An excellent stay!
Camp was gorgeous, with plenty of space for 4 (4 bed/2 full bath), and just enough privacy to enjoy outside. A few issues with wasps and ants inside, but that's to be expected in that type of area. Only downside was that it was not as close to the water as I would have liked. 30 min. to Lake George and relatively close to plenty of hiking trails, (although they are easier ones, you'll need to drive further for more of a challenge). Overall this place is perfect for those who want to enjoy the area without the hardcore camping in mind.
Lovely, spacious home in beautiful setting
This large, beautiful house is perfect for a family vacation in the ADKs. Great location, with access to the lake and an easy drive to Gore, Lake George, etc. Check-in and check-out were very simple and easy. The one improvement I would suggest is having more information about the house and surrounding area: directions to the lake were unclear, and it would have been helpful to have instructions on using the TV, as well as suggestions for local activities and restaurants.
