|Deposits: The house we are renting is not part of a commercial business; it is our 2nd home. To help pay for some of the expenses, we are looking to share our home with guests who will take good care of it during their stay. After your stay, it is our hope to reimburse your entire $300 security deposit and provide you with a credit toward a future stay as a thank you for keeping to the rental agreement and leaving the house cleaned and in such good condition that we can not tell that anyone was there.|
|Payment Options: Cashier's Check, PayPal, Personal Check|
|Other Fees: We have a canoe that you can use for free. Kayak rental is $100/week per kayak (up to 3 available). Rate for weekend stay available upon request. Reserve kayak when you reserve stay to ensure availability. The kayaks I have are a Dagger Pegasus which is a Sit-On-Top, a Dagger Crossfire which is an old-school whitewater boat, and a 14.5' Perception Carolina which is more of a lake boat.|

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
To enjoy the sun, step out the sliding doors to relax on one of two furnished decks that are adjacent to the water. The decks are in sun for most of the day, but both have shade you can enjoy if you feel the need.
When you are ready for a swim, gradually wade into the water from the deck or take a plunge off the end of the dock. The water is clear, and right near the shore the bottom is sandy and slopes gently. If you'd rather play in the sand, there is a shared access beach that sits adjacent to the property.
The lake is also a great place to fish, boat, and waterski. I have a canoe that you can use without charge. Two kayaks are also usually available to rent as long as I have advance notice, but feel free to bring your own boat and tie it to the dock. You can easily launch a canoe, kayak, or small sailboat from our property or from the adjacent beach. There is also a boat launch at the campground on East Caroga Lake for larger boats. A connecting channel lets you explore West Caroga Lake if you are interested.
Nearby you will also find golf, hiking, nature trails, historic sites, a cider mill, and if you want to travel a bit further (~18 miles), there is a zoo. There is a place to get ice cream down the road across from Sherman's which is around the corner on West Caroga Lake. There are also a number of good restaurants in the area.
Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Gloversville, New York
August 20, 2012
This has by far been one of the best rentals we have stayed in. Everything is just as pictured. The water is really right there when you step out on the deck and very peaceful. House was very, very clean and had all the amenities we needed for the week. We had a fire every night, toasted marshmallows and just enjoyed the relaxation. The area also has lots to offer, Cooperstown and Saratoga are about a 45 minute ride but well worth it. We would definitely return. Dave and Elsa have a great place on Lake Caraga and we were happy they shared that with us!

This home is great. It is truly "waterfront". Very peacful area. Gloversville and Johnstown provide access to all types of services if needed. We had a great time and would stay again.
