Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the peace & quiet of the place! The lake was beautiful and great for swimming. My only issue was that it was a bit scary getting onto the dock as the little bridge looked like it might break soon. Wish there was a ladder to get onto the dock after being in the water. There are steps under the little bridge, but not easy to get to & they were very slippery. Still loved the water though!

As for the house, it was very cute and homey. Had a bit of an issue with the TV, but I think it was due to the greenery on the mantle. That's ok, because we weren't there to watch TV!

One suggestion would be to add a futon or fold out couch to the porch area for those hot sleeping nights.

Close to Lake George area too. We took a ride to Lake George & went on the Mohican boat ride for 2 1/2 hours! Great weather all around!

I would definitely recommend this home to others!

Willi was great to work with & helped us out with any issues we had.

Overall...loved it!

Nice quiet place to relax.

  • 3 of 5

Nice quiet house with nice views of lake. Only gripe was for a house that has no pet policy they should let people know that they have pets they bring there. When it's damp you can smell the dogs.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jeremy for your review and constructive feedback. This information is very helpful and will definitely be taking care of. My first thought when you posted your review was a bit of confusion; because I actually don't own a pet. I love dogs and animals but because of my allergies, which can get a bit servere I do my best to stay away. I also have a two year old, who is walking now but from the time he was crawling everyone knows, I don't like to have pets in the house and I do my best to keep the floors clean at all times because he loves being on the floor and will put things in his mouth. I probably should not be so annal about that but he is my first and only. With that said, please note I thought long and hard about your comment as I was trying to figure it out. Anyone who knows me knows I care deeply about my house and making the house very nice so that even if I can't be there my guest can enjoy it as much as I do. Every year we also try to do upgrades so that our guest enjoy nature whilst still having the comforts of home. Then it dawned on me. I recall when you e-mailed me and said you were on your way and wanted to arrive early. My cleaner had just cleaned the house the day before and had notified me that there was a slow leak under the bathroom sink. Thus, the reason I had my house manager go to the house the day of your arrival, early in the morning. So you know he has a chocalate lab that is 96 years old (human years). He is an amazing dog and will lick you to death, completely harmless. However, he just lays on the floor and sleeps. My handyman/manager even has to lift him up the entry stairs because he limps. Thus, the reason he cant be upstairs near bedrooms and he would only be on the hardwood floor by the entrance/ living area, not on any furniture. He actually likes the cool of the hardwood floor. As the dog's time may be short, please understand why my manager does not like to leave him home when he is out an about working. The dog is only there for a brief time. Once again, thank you so much for your feedback. Sorry for the long winded response on the this forum. My only regret was that during your 10 day stay it was not mentioned; I provided my personal contact for any concerns. Your enjoyable stay is my concern. I will do my best to rectify for the future. Note, if a guest requests to bring a pet (decided on an individual basis), they have to pay a pet deposit for cleaning for these reasons.

Gorgeous home with fanastic porch overlooking the lake. Modern amenities at your fingertips meshed with rustic decorations. Owner was very helpful in answering any questions we had. Would love to go back again in future.

Best Investment I made all Year!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best investment I made all year and definitely what the doctor ordered. I had not seen my childhood friend for many years and wanted a place that my family and his could get together for the holidays. We had so much fun, we wished our time would never end. This house was the place that made that time all possible.

From the moment we walked into this house, we were greated with a great view, a scent of Christmas pine, and the house was very clean and pleasantly decorated with adirondack decor. We were very happy with our choice of rental immediately upon our arrival. Thoughout our stay, the house was equipped with all the comforts of home, we had internet access, SMART TV, the kitchen was filled with all the utensils we needed, and we spent many hours catching up on old times by the fire. The kids even played board games and cards that were available for the guest to use.

The house was very close to all the major attractions and the owners were very accommodating with instructions and directions when we had any questions. They did a great job at being easy to reach when we had any questions and very forthcoming with suggestions for activities in the area.

The grounds and lake were lovely. The trees around the house provided lots of privacy and were beautiful when it snowed. We had a great time and look forward to renting this house again next year. We would recommend it to anyone who is interested in renting a beautiful clean, centally located, quiet retreat with a view of the lake.

EXCELLENT LAKE HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple stayed at this wonderful lake house from 7/2 – 7/5/16… It was a quiet and most relaxing get-away – we enjoyed everything about this home - the view of the lake, making campfires down by the lake and sitting out on the patio in the evenings under a star-filled sky. This home had everything we needed. Willi was very accommodating and answered all my questions very quickly. Thanks for a great vacation Willi! Would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

Fantastic Getaway, turn off the cell phone*****

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy this home was available for our dates. We had never been to the lake before but traveled a lot. So we were not sure what to expect. This house was exactly what we wanted! We had all the comforts of home and more. Very tranquil, clean, and relaxing. The kitchen and house was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The owner also answered all our question, we had immediately.

We definitely recommend the property and homeaway to anyone looking to rent on Sacadaga Lake. It was a excellent vacation. We will be back next year.
