House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6 adults, 2 children)
Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath waterfront saltbox on a small, quiet lake in upstate NY in the town of Hampton (not on Lake George), 3 mi. from the VT border, 35 miles from Lake George village, with a screened in porch. Open floor plan, private home, available year round. Enjoy a good book on our deck while the setting sun reflects onto the water. In the fall, the foliage mirrors onto the lake; in the winter, the woodstove keeps you cozy and warms you up when you come in from skating or x/c skiing. Our leather sectional is a great place to watch a movie at the end of your day, or read a book as your kids work on a puzzle on our large coffee table. Enjoy the private lake on our canoe, kayak,paddle boat, or our newest addition, a stand-up paddleboard. It's a great family vacation, that can include your well mannered family dog, if you just can't bear to leave him behind. Our master bedroom with a plush, king-size bed and main bath area are downstairs, with two additional bedrooms and another bath upstairs, making it easy to share with another couple or family, while still having privacy. You can chill out and enjoy the peaceful setting, or when you're re-energized and ready to explore, Lake George Village is just over a half hour away, with large Riverboats to tour the lake, restaurants and shopping. Manchester, VT is a Designer Outlet mecca, or take a day trip to charming VT towns like Middlebury, Ludlow, Brattleboro, or everyone's favorite, Burlington. There's great Horseback riding and a seasonal rodeo at Pond Hill Ranch just 20 minutes away, and the home of Green Mountain College (Poultney, VT) has a rail trail for hiking, dog-walking, biking, x/c skiing or snowshoeing, just 10 minutes away. Any off-season weekend, two nights, $400. Our normal off-season rates are for mid-week or for a full week. No prom weekends or college spring break rentals; minimum rental age: 25.

About Helen Krieger
We love our times here at the lake, but can only enjoy it occasionally. We'd love to find people that will be able to come up and enjoy this little slice of paradise, instead of having it sit empty, waiting for our next visit. We are empty nesters, until the kids and grandkids all come back to visit, so we're always on the go. When we're not working at our IT desk jobs, we love biking, boating, x/c skiing, kayaking, and just about anything outdoors. We go every other year to Europe on a bike and boat adventure; that's our favorite way to combine our love of boating and the water, along with biking.
Helen Krieger purchased this House in 2004
Why Helen Krieger chose Town of Hampton
We wanted to find a lake that was peaceful and not crowded with everyone on top of each other. Compared to other properties we looked at, this one couldn't be beat.
What makes this House unique
We love that we can enjoy it year round. My husband is a swimmer, so once the water warms up, he swims from one end to the other every day we're at the lake. In the winter, our grandkids come up and tube down our hillside onto the frozen lake, and we skate, snowshoe and x/c ski. In the fall, the views of the foliage are great, as well as the hiking at Haystack Mountain just 25 minutes away.

Our family (myself, my husband and three children 16yrs, 14years, 12years) at this wonderful lakehouse for a week.
The home is very nicely appointed with all you will need! Linens and bath towels are provided (such a plus), kitchen is well stocked, home is very clean (I was concerned about possible dog hair when booking because the owners do allow dogs, I am a dog lover but leave my dog home on vacation, but I can assure you there was no sign that dogs were here-VERY clean, not a hair to be found!).
The screened in porch is amazing, we ate most meals there and played many games. In addition the deck off the living room was another area to eat (picnic table with umbrella) and the two Adirondack chairs on the deck are the perfect for reading or morning coffee. The doors to the screened in porch are beautiful carved wood-many nice touches! You will love all the birds and chipmunks!
The lake was fabulous!!! We stay at lake homes every summer-often in the Pocono mountains, this was by far the best lake ever! The dock at lake offers lounge chairs and a huge umbrella! You can swim in the lake, very clean--no "lake weed" at all near the dock! There are so many "toys' (peddle boat, canoe, 2 kayaks and a paddleboard). We spent HOURS down at the lake! Of course we brought our fishing poles and were amazed at the number of fish we caught right off the dock!! It's a small, private lake "Melvin Pond"--perfect size. It is a bit of a workout walk down/ up but we are from Long Island so maybe we are used to flat ocean type landscapes...or we are a bit out of shape!
We did venture out a couple of days-we went to Lake George(about 40mins) shopping, lunch, Minnie Ha Ha Steamboat, we went to breakfast one day at The Silo Restaurant (about 30mins away-delicious and a very nice, large gift shop while you wait) and to play mini golf/ice cream one night. Helen sent us a list of many places to visit in the area (you are about 10 mins from the Vt border) but we really had the best time in the lake, and did not go out much. Helen is very organized with sending all the information before we left for the trip for the specifics of the home/area which was so helpful!
There is no AC in the home, there are fans in all bed rooms and ceiling fans is the LR and the screened porch, it got cooler as the week progressed so did not use the fans later in the week at all.
Helen is amazing to deal with! The deposit was returned within days of our return home. Highly recommend
We do our best to accurately describe our property features, pros and cons, so that our renters have all the information they need when choosing a home for their family vacation, so it makes us very happy when we hear from a satisfied family :-).
The House was amazing. The feeling and the views were awesome. My family and I will definitely be going back. The owners had printed out for us all the places to visit and the distances. It was an awesome experience.
Helen's property was wonderful for our group of 6 adults. Everything was clean and comfortable, and Helen was very responsive and helpful. It was also within about an hour's drive from the large ski resorts. I highly recommend it!
Amazing getaway ever !!
We had an amazing time in the House which was perfect gor 4 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs. The kids had lots of fun in the lac .. kayaking, paddling, etc... we fished a lot too and caught lots of bass , trout and catfish. The grounds a well kept as well as the house . We will definitely come back ! It was so much fun!!! The owners are wonderful too!!!!
An Awesome Time!
My wife and I have been renting through VRBO for a long time and we have stayed in multiple lake houses in the Finger Lakes and ADX, this spot is by far our favorite. The pond is clean and the water front is perfect for relaxing and swimming (for both our dog and toddler). The house is clean and comfortable and well organized. We really loved their screened in porch as well. There is a bunch of stuff to do in the area and we only left one out of the 5 days because it was just so relaxing and quiet. This is going to be our first return spot for sure. Any downside to it, they are very upfront about it in the literature and they are completely manageable.
What a lovely vacation home! My family and I had a wonderful time in the Krieger's lake house. perfect house for a family of 5 and Helen left plenty of info about surrounding restaurants and attractions. Wings at AJ's are a definite if you plan on visiting ;) It was so nice to come back to this peaceful hideaway after the busy days in Lake George village and six flags. We would definitely stay here again if we decide to visit the Lake George area again.
Town of Hampton, NY. 35 miles from Lake George village; closest entrance to Lake George 15 minutes at Huellet's Landing via public beach. Weekly Saturday night rodeo at Pond Hill Ranch in the summer.
