About the property

10 bdrms inc 8 closed BRs+2 large open 'dorm' BRs+4.5 baths-Sleeps up to 35 max

Elegant Lake George Home/Estate with room for up to 25 guests in large ranch ($7,000/week) & up to 10 more guests in separate cottage (additional $3,500/week). There is a req 7 night min stay. No Sat to Sat rentals (covering 2 different weekends).

Beautiful sunset views of Lake George, private pool & clay tennis court, with country tranquility near Lake George Village and beaches. There is NO LAKEFRONT OR ANY LAKE ACCESS on the property itself (since there is another property in front at lakeside that is not part of this rental). However, there are nearby boat & dock rentals available (3 min drive from the house). LG Village, Million Dollar Beach, Great Escape, water parks & outlets are only 12-min drives away. Two 1845 barns on premises,16 x 32 foot pool, large deck, two gazebos, pond, outdoor bar/deck area, large yard for games (2.3 acres). Gorgeous lake view (Note again there is a beautiful view, but no direct access to the lake for swimming, boating, tanning, fishing, etc. from this property). This property can accommodate from 1 to 35 guests (where up to 15 guests can sleep in beds and 20 guests can sleep on futons or cots). A perfect spot for multi-generation family reunions!

Please also note the "restrictions" for this rental that maintain the high quality of our property and its family-oriented focus: ABSOLUTELY NO PROM parties or stag/bachelor/high school/college 'reunions' due to past experience. No pets of any kind are allowed on this property. Also, to protect this historic site, absolutely no smoking is allowed on the property grounds (OK out on the public road away from the barns with all butts/trash removed). This includes cigarettes, cigars, marijuana, etc. Illegal drug use or underage drinking also are not permitted, and no candles or open flame 'cookers' can be used (other than our supplied propane grill).

PLEASE NOTE AGAIN: IF it is available for your requested dates, the cottage (sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms -10 max) is required to be rented along with the main ranch house for groups of 26 or more people, including infants. Additionally, though more expensive, it will be much more comfortable for families with 15 people or more to rent both homes. Otherwise, it can become crowded inside the ranch house (with only one refrigerator and five closed bedrooms). We want you to return to your homes refreshed and happy after your time at Lake George!

This home also is our family's favorite place for reunions. We have our personal belongings stored in the garage and in some cabinets/closets that are marked off as 'private areas.' There is plenty of closet space provided in the bedrooms and comfortable parking for 5-6 vehicles at both the ranch house and cottage.

The cleaning service will be responsible only for standard household cleaning (not trash removal) inside the house including the outside porch/bar areas.

Cancellation Fees : For a rental cancellation greater than 3 months prior to a planned arrival: Administration fee = $750.00. For a rental cancellation greater than 2 months but less than 3 months prior to arrival: Admin. Fee = $1,000.

For a rental cancellation greater than 1 month but less than 2 months prior to arrival: Admin. Fee = $1,500. For a rental cancellation less than 1 month prior to arrival, we will try to replace your rental. However, you will be responsible for the full rental (100%) if we are unable to rent the premises on those dates.

If you have catastrophic reasons (health crisis of leaseholder or leaseholder's parents or children) for your cancellation less than one month prior to arrival (and provide proof), we will return your deposits/rental fees minus $1,500 even if we cannot re-rent the premises.

What other renters wrote in notes/emails to us (with permission to share):

"You can't ask for a better vacation spot! Not only is the area beautiful, but the house is completely perfect for a fun and relaxing vacation. Waking up in the morning and walking onto the porch to look out onto the lake was wonderful. Between the pool, tennis court, big lawn, big kitchen and large porch, our group hardly even left the house! This was just our second time coming, but I see many more visits in the future! "Thank you again. We so much appreciate you organizing and sharing your beautiful home with us. Hope to see you again soon!" Stacey T., New York, NY (June, 2013)

“This is just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our vacation.. This was a family vacation with three generations, including grandparents, parents, teenagers and four little boys from 4 to 7 years old. We all had a great time and there were plenty of activities in and around to please every age. The house was spacious and accommodated us all---16. Kitchen, bathrooms and the bedrooms and the amenities and equipment were excellent. The grounds are beautiful. The pool and tennis court were excellent and well used, especially by the boys. We all enjoyed a trip to Saratoga Springs race track for morning workout and breakfast. The boys got a kick out of Fort William Henry, where they heard musket and cannon fire and got dressed and armed as British soldiers of the Colonial Era. Miniature golf was another favorite of the boys. For the adults, reading, walking and eating were the big pleasures. For all of us, the best was being together in a great setting.” M. Daniels, Bethesda, MD (Aug, 2012)

"We are still receiving emails from family on how great a time they all had at your house and cottage. The pool was a super hit and the large open grounds were perfect for the kids. We shared old memories and made new ones. This was our first reunion effort, and we are now sure it won't be the last. Thanks so much!

The P. Family, Oviedo, FL (Aug, 2011)

"We had a wonderful time staying at the ranch house! The house was very spacious and easily accommodated our large group with room to spare (18 adults and 7 children). The owners were very nice and helpful. The pool area is fantastic and between that and the tennis courts, we were entertained for the whole weekend. The location is great, quiet and private but close to town. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Lake George." Jamie W., New York, NY (July, 2011)

"Our almost entire family (20 of us) spent 4 days on this Lake George property in August, 2010 and had a terrific time. Its location is convenient to everything. The house and beautiful grounds are well maintained and the pool is delicious. Recommend it highly." Jack N., Fairlawn, NJ (Aug 2010)

"Our week in Cleverdale at your estate was wonderful! 23 of us, ages 6 to 74, arrived from all over to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. We had so much space between the cottage and main house that we never felt crowded and were able to have time alone if needed. The huge yard was a hit for bocce ball, football and the tennis court was used daily. It was very difficult to leave the beautiful pool area during the week. The kids, big and small, enjoyed that immensely!! The flat grounds were perfect for my mom who has a bit of trouble walking. My parents were so thankful for the memorable week with all of their kids and grandkids. Thank you for helping me make this milestone unforgettable. We appreciate you allowing us the time in your beautiful home." S. Little, Liverpool, NY (Aug, 2010

Why Marty, Manager chose Cleverdale

Private estate for families who want to enjoy being in one place for reunions (without having to rent separate rooms in a hotel). Having everyone stay in one large home (with a large kitchen and covered porch) makes it easier to enjoy hours of relaxation and meals together. The owners have enjoyed yearly family reunions on this property since 1993.

What makes this estate unique

Perfect location for multi-generational family reunions! Beautiful sunset views of lake from poolside deck and ranch house porch - Note: No lakefront access.

We rent to family groups only, and welcome children of all ages (though no pets or smoking). Prior to approving any rental, we also require a phone conversation with an adult who will be on the premises during the rental - call Marty at 203-228-2251.

Dates of Stay: July 28 to August 1, 2016 -

"I just wanted you to know that we had a great time these past four days in Lake George. The weather was so nice with the exception of a little rain yesterday and this morning. Your house worked out nicely for our family...the pool and the bar area were awesome! Lake George is beautiful and so peaceful. We were able to enjoy being together and appreciating our family. Thanks again, Nancy" (email 8/1/16 12:06 PM)

"Fun Family Vacation"

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I grew up visiting Lake George every summer, making it a very special place for us. This was an opportunity for us to be all together to make even more memories with the whole family!!

This was our first time staying at the house. It was so much more than we expected. It was in the perfect location - close to everything (Attractions) and yet private. The owners were very helpful and accommodating.

The house was spotless and very comfortable!!! The kitchen was fabulous - living room spacious enough for all of us to sit and play board games around the coffee table. The grounds were well maintained and a beautiful view of the Lake.

It was great on those warm mornings and evenings to walk out and take a dip in the pool. Loved the back porch; whether we were having a peaceful morning coffee or the whole family enjoying a BBQ dinner.

We had the best time!! After staying here, I would definitely suggest staying at this property. We are looking forward to staying there again on our next Family Vacation!!!
