About the area

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.

“Couldn't ask for a better place to stay!”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

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!

“best vacation house”

It as been a pleasure to communicate with the house owner, Joe. The house was well decorated. My daughter loved sleeping in the master bedroom. We had a great stay at this vacation home. I would most definitely stay there again.

“Excellent! 5 Stars!”

We just stayed here for the week and it was wonderful!! The townhouse is just as beautiful as it is in the pictures. It was very spacious, very clean and very comfortable. All of the beds were comfortable and the linens and towels were of good quality. It was fully appointed with plates, utensils and cooking equipment. The screened in porch was wonderful, as well as the fire pit in which we had fires every night. The beach at Tripp Lake was wonderful and refreshing. The water was clear, and the bottom of the lake had a soft sand bottom. We went kayaking on the lake every day and then swam in the roped off area supervised by lifeguards. The beach also had huge umbrellas and both lounge and beach chairs. I would definitely recommend this townhouse to anyone for a wonderful stay. Joe the owner is very nice and accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely rent here again, maybe even this fall!

“Fantastic place and owner!”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2015

This was our second time staying in this Adirondack townhouse. The house is an end unit in a quiet complex with lots of amenities like golf, tennis and hiking. The place has a sophisticated, lodge feel to it and is superbly cleaned and maintained. We travel a lot as a family and like to have the space instead of a hotel room. Joe (the owner) has done a great job of having high end touches in his property. It really is a luxury home away from home. An example is the sheets. Most rental properties have cheap, rough sheets whereas this condo has plush, soft sheets that make you remember them. The furniture is new, there is a great fireplace and the rooms are spacious. I would recommend this place to any family looking for a high end rental in the Adirondacks. Most importantly, Joe is a great guy who treats his visitors like family. He is very accommodating, even on short notice. We will definitely be back for a third visit.

“Great location”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

Great value for location. Definitely NOT for the elderly or handicapped. Could use some minor upgrades to the house

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review Samantha... Would you have paid more for your stay and please elaborate on minor upgrades.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I can't say enough about how perfectly wonderful our stay was! We arrived in a snow storm and our Thanksgiving hideaway was all warm and toasty waiting for us. We have rented from other rental sites multiple times before and I can truly say that this particular property tops the list! Not only is the home beautifully decorated, it has everything you can think of from all of the little touches (baskets in each bedroom held towels for each guest) to a fully stocked kitchen (which made our Thanksgiving dinner prep a snap). Joe was so very easy to communicate with throughout the rental process and even took the time to call and check on us upon arrival in the storm. Our on-site caretaker, Nora is a lovely lady who also checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed (and even bailed us out when we forgot to take our keys and locked ourselves out!). We were a party of four adults and all agreed that this was a perfect place to spend the holiday. Thank you Joe (and Nora)!

Just as you see in the photos, the place is amazingly beautiful and well equipped. They honestly thought of everything needed. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Both the owner/ care taker were very accessible and accommodating. Lake George is about a 15 min drive. The house is also close to restaurants, supermarkets, rafting companies and about a 20 min drive to ski resort. Definitely will use in future trips!

This place is gorgeous! We went here for New Years, and we had a great time. It is completely furnished inside, it had wifi, cable, fireplace (my favorite), everything is as it looks in the pictures and even more beautiful when you go in person. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to have a great time, peace and quiet. I would definitely come back for a summer vacation. Fell in love with this place!!!!!!!!!!

What a fantastic, quiet, weekend getaway! The home is beautiful and impeccably decorated, every detail is taken care of. Anything we could have needed was available. All of the rooms were comfortable and our favorite part was the fire place, especially in negative degree temperatures! We can't wait to stay again, maybe in the summer with a few more people, to take advantage of the outdoors. The owners are great to deal with, so friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend a stay in this home!

We recently spent a weekend at this beautiful town home. The pictures which you see are just a glimpse of the this beautifully decorated property. I spent a lengthy time searching properties, and of course looking at photos. I was not disappointed in the slightest. Property is tucked away in the forest of a small community. A small lake near by that we enjoyed trekking around in the winter...I am sure is amazing in the summer too. Private beach, kayaks, tennis courts. Lake George is a short drive up the street. We travelled with two other couples. This property is absolutely perfect for an adult getaway. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. House is stocked with all the essentials. We spent a great portion in the living space around the fireplace playing games and catching up with our friends who travelled with us. Such a great time! Joe the property owner is kind and very timely in all our communication. He provided us with evey detail we needed to make our trip wonderful!

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!!

My family and I stayed here for the Labor Day Weekend. The place is wonderful. Beds are super cozy, the kitchen is fully stocked, and the entire space is beautifully decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed using the grill and building a fire in the outdoor pit. We were a total of 7 adults plus one well-behaved Chihuahua-Beagle Mix. Joe has a binder with instructions and directions for and to everything you can imagine. The whole reservation process went smoothly, and he was patient when I couldn't figure out how to process the PayPal payment properly. Tripp Lake is a 5 minute walk away which gives you access to canoes, kayaks, and rowboats at no extra fee.And, Joe also has a private kayak you can use if you want to. We had an awesome time. The only thing that I would say, and this is in no way to detract from the experience, is that if you decide to bring a dog, you can't really bring him to the lake area or on any of the boats. There's ample places to walk and hike, but I would have liked to have been able to take him to the lake during the day. But, I totally understand that public areas have restrictions, so I was good with it. Just keep this in mind if you are bringing a pet. To sum it up: A great experience and I'll definitely be renting from Joe again next year.
