“Stunning home”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2017

The house was amazing! The wood work all over the house was beautiful and the pictures really don't do it justice. There were plenty of space for our group and the open floor plan was a perfect set up. Outback, there are hiking trails giving you plenty to do during the day time. Melissa was terrific and answered every question we had about the place very quickly. We would absolutely stay here again! Thanks again Melissa!

“Wonderful house and location”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2016

This was a perfect house for our family and our 3 dogs. We loved having such a wonderful property to hike and loved the views. We were amazed at how well equipped the kitchen was and it worked perfectly for our Thanksgiving dinner. Melissa was so helpful in every way and we can't wait to book our next stay there.

Owner's reply: And you were so helpful to leave me such a clean, tidy house, as well as to write this kind review. I look forward to your return.

“Lake George Vacation”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2015

Our family of seven enjoyed a week's vacation at this lovely home. The home is private, spacious, quiet and relaxing. Private bedrooms and baths for all. Well equipped kitchen (the best we've seen!). Melissa is a very accommodating host, excellent with communication and planning. Lake George is a beautiful place to visit and a vacation worth taking! Thanks Melissa for sharing your lovely home.

“Great house with lots of privacy”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2015

A group of 6 adults stayed over the Labor Day weekend. Tons of space and privacy. Perfect location....on the main road but away from the busy areas. Lots of restaurants and stores close by. Melissa checked in on us via phone/text. The price was really good. We were all on our motorcycles so the driveway was a little challenging as it is not paved. But overall, we all loved the house. A couple of us even did the hike trail (a little challenging). Would definitely go back.

“Great Place”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2015

You can tell the owners truly cared if we would be comfortable and all our needs would be met. I would recommend this place to stay at.

“A wonderful winter getaway”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2015

We wanted to go somewhere different for our anniversary and this adorable house did not disappoint. Melissa was incredibly accommodating and thought of everything from the weather report to our dogs' comfort. Although the house could have slept many more, it seemed cozy and spacious all at once. The absolute highlight of the trip, though, was the ample hiking right outside the back door! We had acre after acre all to ourselves and our dogs couldn't have been happier running through and exploring the woods. We would definitely return!

“Nice house, no yard”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2013

The house was beautiful inside, but was not good for young children to play outside. A lot of hills and no lawn to sit on.

Owner's reply: Though sorry to disappoint my guest, I’m puzzled that she expected to find a lawn at the house. Our ads read, "A Private Vacation Rental Home in the Adirondack Mountains on Its Own 50 Wooded Acres." and "Grounds are heavily wooded and contain a small stream, rock ledges, and many species of native trees . . providing shade, privacy, and natural beauty." Pictures show trees all around and over the house. Trees and mountains are the Adirondacks' specialty, trees keeping the lake clean, too.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We vacationed with our three grown children and their spouses and two family dogs. The house was immaculate when we arrived and everything was exactly as promised. I highly recommend this house for families - we had wonderful family dinners in the kitchen/dining room and saved a ton of money!!! Melissa is wonderful, I can't say enough good things about our hostess!! The price was phenomenal and we will be coming back to Lake George soon!!! Awesome house! More than worth the money!

just absolutely loved this place. Melissa was very informative and friendly. She helped with all the planning and suggested things to see and do. The property was like my home away from home. Its all renovated and is well maintained. Truly a beautiful and cozy place. I can't say enough about how we enjoyed it. There were 11 people in our party and the property was spacious enough for all to be comfortable. The house item were fully stocked with all the cutlery and kitchen accessories. The four full bathrooms were quite sufficient for our mini vacation. I hope to be back again for another vacation, hopefully a full week next time. The surroundings were picturesque as the snow lightly glistened the treetops.
