About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 baths, sleeps 8, all luxury linens, designer decorated.

Our townhouse could not be located in a more central location to every season activity in the Adirondack. 12 minutes to Lake George Village, We are also 5 to 20 minutes from white-water rafting, tubing, hiking, cruise boats, powerboat rentals, downhill skiing, train rides, gondola rides, Great Escape, Lake George Village, shopping, dining, historical attractions, nature trails, outfitters, an unlimited amount of mountain hiking trails and so much more! Plus, fabulous Saratoga Springs is within an hour and Lake Placid Olympic region within 90 minutes!

Luxurious, recently renovated, designer decorated townhouse waiting to make your vacation perfect! We pay attention to our guest needs by providing the expected and unexpected.

Located on a cul-de-sac on the side of a mountain, the townhouse is very private (only one other building in the area) and offers forest views from every window. Hiking trails alongside a mountain stream are directly outside the front door. A short 4-minute walk down a wooded trail takes you to a private beach located on a small, crystal clean mountain lake. Spend the day sunning, or on the water in kayaks or canoes that are available, free to our guests. And, if you have children, there’s a playground located on the beach as well as a lifeguard. Enjoy an afternoon game of tennis on on-site clay-courts or a round of golf at the nearby course. The best part is after a day of doing and seeing you can get away to the peace and quiet of this wonderful townhouse to snuggle under a fluffy comforter on top of a way too comfortable bed, and lulled to sleep by the sound of silence in the Adirondack. ($250 A DAY IS BASED ON 2 ADULTS STAYING AT THE HOME. ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR MORE GUESTS & SUMMER RENTALS GO FROM SATURDAY TO SATURDAY.)

Why The Owner chose Chestertown

It is recently renovated and has everything you could think of to make your vacation hassle free. The location is great! Away from the craziness of LG village, and sleepless nights due to the noise, but close enough to stay with the action! Wonderful for curious children. We have a rocky mountain stream a stone's throw away...great for exploring, nature trails on site and chipmunks begging to be fed peanuts!

What makes this townhome unique

Private lake with beach, lifeguard and boats. Tennis players love our clay court! We are in close proximity to an 18 hole golf course and there's a 9 hole on site.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and two children ages 2 & 5, couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The house is in a great central location, and is beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable unlike other places we have stayed, and the linens and towels are high quality. Joe (the owner) was very responsive to my emails and answered all my questions. He even called to check in to see if we had any questions when we arrived. Nora (house cleaner), is simply a peach. Gave us some great tips when we arrived. The beach was very nice, quiet, clean and was fully stocked with lounge chairs and umbrellas. I highly recommend this lovely home!

Weekend SkiStay

  • 5 of 5

What a great place!!! We had 2 families (total of 8) stay fro a weekend of skiing at Gore. The place was immaculate and had all the amenities. The area is beautiful and Joe was extremely pleasant to work with and called us within minutes of our arrival to ask is everything was going well. We will stay again!

Beautiful home for a cozy stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to find this gem - this townhome is a true home away from home. It is well kept, very clean, functional and cozy! The photos really do not do justice to how beautiful the home is. Our group of 8 was easily accommodated, and the home was well-equipped for our needs (cooking items, linens, etc). The bedrooms are very cozy and inviting and the washrooms are clean and tidy. We visited in the winter season, and stumbled on the frozen lake 5 mins away perfect for skating. The winter views from the windows by the large fireplace are picture perfect!

Joe was very friendly and easy to communicate with, making the experience that much more enjoyable.

Would definitely recommend this home for a getaway!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5


Our family of 5 REALLY enjoyed this condo! We all slept great in it because we felt so at home and it was so quiet and peaceful! Everything about the condo was excellent- it was clean, organized, cozy, and functional while also beautifully decorated! It is a very short walk to Tripp lake and our kids spent hours there swimming out to the float, kayaking and making sandcastles. We loved the scenery and solitude while only being 20 min away from Lake George and all the action. We went parasailing, on a steam boat ride, to Fort William Henry, to water slide world, and mini golfing.

We enjoyed meals on the screened in porch and meals out as there are tons of choices for restaurants. We hope to visit again and explore even more!

Beautiful home, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We rented for a family of six and the townhouse had plenty of room for all of us. Everything we needed was on hand, and we felt like we were staying at a friend's house. Very short walk to the lake. Driving distance to awesome hiking, rafting, horseback riding, shopping and dining. We enjoyed being close enough to drive to Lake George if we wanted a crowd, but felt like we were staying at a quiet mountain retreat. We hope to come back!

Beautiful Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a very nice time at the condo at Tripp Pond. Any minor issues we experienced were quickly taken care of by Nora or Joe. There is plenty of room to spread out in and we all enjoyed the enclosed porch. It is about 20 minutes from Lake George village, but if you don't mind going on the side roads instead of the main highway, a very scenic ride.

A must if you love ice cream like I do, is Martha's directly across from six flags amusement center. Martha's has been featured on the Today show and is #5 in the country!!!! It is very creamy and delicious. I had it 4 times during my stay, one time it was a Banana Split which I split with a friend and we still couldn't finish it. I posted a picture on Facebook and someone commented that the bowl was bigger then my head!!

From the moment I was in contact with Joe, the owner of the townhouse, I knew it was going to be a great place. He was so accommodating and easy to communicate with. Everything that is posted in the listing is accurate and even better in person. We had all the comforts of home and couldn't have asked for anything more.

We went skiing at Gore Mountain which is about a 20 minute drive from the townhouse. We took a day trip into Saratoga Springs and Ballston Spa (about 1 hour away). If you're into antiques, Ballston Spa had many great shops! We enjoyed time just relaxing in the home, renting movies, playing board games and sitting by the toasty fireplace.

We can't wait to book another getaway with Joe & Dana in the near future!

Thank you again for your warm hospitality!!
