Peaceful and green with shade or sun, swing, and flowers at cottage and beach! Great sunsets. Maybe you will get more lucky and be put in the main house.
Per Gath and Frank as they wrote in our guest book! "AS USUAL YOU ORDRED GREAT WEATHER FOR US. WE HAD ANOTHER FANTATIC TIME. THIS WAS OUR 5TH SEASON AT YOUR COTTAGE. WE HOPE WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR. OUR DAUGHTER & GRANDDAUGHTERS HAD A GREAT TIME. THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH. HAVE A GREAT WINTER AND WE HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT SEASON."
The Saratoga area of NY is my favorite place to be and had a great time. This cottage was exactly as described. The cottage set far enough back from the main house to be considered private. The owners worked hard to keep things maintained and clean, even after the area had unexpected rain showers that added 8" to the lake. The lake was beautiful. The Blumes were always working on something...just shows that they care about their property, I enjoyed meeting Betty and Bill and know that next time I travel to the area, I will be plan on staying there.
Loved it being as charming as I remembered from 2014. The grounds are lovely with lots of blooming flowers and bushes. They have added a canopy for use of the deck in showers and a new large shower stall with an adjustable shower height. They have man really nice things to use and if you need something special just ask they likely will have it to lend. We hope this bungalow is available our next trip!
Filthy & dirty. Combination pad lock & chain to lock the door. Smelled moldy. Mold in shower curtain. Cleaned for 3 days just to be livable. Dirty dishes in cupboard. Dust & cobwebs everywhere. Mouse traps full on mouse droppings spilled out onto the floor. Vacuum cleaner bag full to beyond capacity had to be emptied by hand because no replacement bag available. So much sand under the carpet I thought I was at the beach. Grass a foot tall before they mowed it. Yard looked like a junk yard. Terrible!! Terrible!! Terrible!!! Can not reccomend this place to anyone.
My 97 years old Mother and I stayed in this delightful , private Bungalow for two beautiful weeks in Sept 2015. The owners, Bill and Betty were so congenial during our stay! Bill was informative about the area, activities, and local restaurants. Betty was so cordial and provided all our needs to be sure we were comfortable.
We live in Fl but originally from this area so we had family and friends visit helping my Mother celebrate her birthday ! Bill and Betty were so helpful and welcoming to all!
We enjoyed relaxing on the dock, swimming, kayaking, and boat ride! Everything is provided for making a fire by the lake. We enjoyed doing s'mores and storytelling!
If you are looking for a clean camping experience we recommend , Sunset Cottage!"!
The cottage discription was accurate, The cottage is on the same property as the owners house so if you are seeking privacy, this rental is probably not for you. That being said, Betty and Ed,( owners) were very warm, friendly people. They offered many tips on area activities. Their two dogs came by for daily visits which was most welcome. The dock and chairs were perfect for the morning coffee and newspaper. Sunsets were outstanding. The race track and downtown were a quick drive away. Had a really nice week.
Saratoga Lake and area is beautiful. Wonderful and relaxing vacation. Betty and Bill are very kind and accommodating. Listing was accurate and Betty was upfront about conditions of lake water in August with lots of seaweed. Without the seaweed swimming would be enjoyable so I would look to visit a little earlier in the summer to avoid it. Great place to bring a dog! They are very accepting of your pet and treat you like a responsible pet owner. If you have children location is close to Queensbury with all attractions, 15 min drive once you are off the lake road. Convenient location to downtown Saratoga and shopping area to get your necessities. Our only complaint is to get full screens to help eliminate the multiple spiders and other insects that seem to make their way in thru the tiny gaps. Overall lovely cottage, location and owners.
