My favorite place

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfectly charming again!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Only truths here could be she cleaned, unnecessarily as she told me "its the way I am, I need to clean everything when I arrive" & we do have a pad lock on the door. This unit was totally cleaned prior to their arrival. None of these complaints were made upon their arrival. The only complaint they made during their stay from May 7-June 15th was that the grass needed mowing which was due to the rain and our gardener couldn't get in to mow as scheduled. It was not "a foot high". We did not have nor had mouse traps. We have professionally installed bait boxes around the property to prevent rodents from the woods from entering and one concealed under bath cabinet, designed for safety so pets or children cannot access them. These boxes were just serviced. It is unlikely any droppings were present as I have used these for sometime and have never seen droppings. The only items on the property, that she referred to as "junk" were boxes were from moving and in front of our personal garage opposite side of the property and out of view from their bungalow & some trash that had been placed in trash containers for collection. We did have packing boxes that had been flattened, discarded and that were set out to be recycled & collected. Feed back received from the tenant had been positive to us. Our gardens/grounds were repeatedly admired by them. Their son took several starts and plants for their new home nearby. This review is inconsistent with feedback given us during visit. They needed to leave a couple days early. We are a weekly rental & booked them May 7 through June 18th at a special discounted rate. They requested a refund for those few days. Refund was denied as we rent by the week and had turned down other rentals during the booked reservation. I have to believe their outrageous review of property is a result of being denied a small partial refund. Although they claim to be fastidious, my impeccable glass top stove was left so dirty I had to clean it with a safety razor & clean dirt and blood spots left behind on furnishings. They once lived on this lake, have lots family nearby & should be familiar with upstate weather/lake living. I was told that friends/family had checked out the bungalow prior to booking. If it was trashy, they never would have booked it nor have stayed without complaining that is was unsatisfactory. Please warn other property owners to be hesitant about renting to them.

Convenient- Private- Clean - camping Experience!

  • 5 of 5

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!"!

Beautiful Lake Spot

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Relative to most properties around the lake, this property is quite private even if not secluded. The bichons do like to say hello to dog friendly people. The bungalow has no houses or cottages to its sides or back....trees mostly and it is normally pretty quiet. It is not readily seen by people passing. Our home is about 60 ft away with occupied rooms facing away from the bungalow. The lake frontage, dock and deck is not secluded as there are other docks about every 75-100 feet. I am happy you had a nice week. Hope to see you again!

Great location, kind owners, very pet friendly!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: The partial screens get placed in the groves on the side and directly under the rubber under the window pane so things don't come in. It must have been prime spider time and they love the lake area. We had them in our year around home and boats for a short period too. I didn't find webs most of the summer inside either house when cleaning, they love the outdoor house and boat corners though. It is a lake area! We do have ac for the unit. Thanks for your review. Hope to see you again!
