Let me first start off talking about the house. This place is flat out AMAZING! Our group of 14 came here for a weekend trip to Hunter Mountain (~10 mins away) and everyone was in awe of the decor, quality of the rooms, and the kitchen. This place has everything, and the pictures are very accurate. All of the furniture is in new condition and the kitchen is extremely well stocked (we had a professional chef in our group and he was very happy). The basement is completely finished with a pool table and just a great place to lounge. Also, the house has great insulation (we came in late-Jan) and water pressure throughout. We are definitely planning on coming back to this home again. Everything is accurately described in the posting. I could not have asked for more.
Secondly, let me quickly talk about the owners. JoAnn is one of the best owners I've ever dealt with in renting a home (I've rented many houses / lodges over the years). She is very responsive and had everything down to a T in preparing the home for us. You can also tell that JoAnn & Scott invested a ton of money into this house. They manage several other properties in the surrounding areas, which makes her service that much more impressive.
I highly encourage prospective renters to select the Colgate Lake Lodge. You will look smart and will not be disappointed ;) Thanks again, JoAnn!
