Serene and Tranquil...just heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautifully relaxing place for the 4th of July, 2014. Our mornings began with coffee on the dock down at the private lake watching the sun burn the fog off. Tucked away in the woods, yet close to everything - expressways, the train station, shops, restaurants, grocery store and more! The outdoor picnic area is also well equipped, so you can enjoy your meals lakeside. The house is so comfortable and well maintained, and has just about everything you'd ever need. And, the garnet fireplace is quite the gem! Kate, Nancy and Joel were so accommodating and made sure we were all set. What a great vacation house! We can't wait to get back to this Adirondack delight!

My friends and I enjoyed celebrating New Year in this beautiful house next to the pond. This house was perfect for group of 13 people. The house was clear, comfortable and had everything you may need. Perfect location close to traffic, grocery, restaurants, and ski resort. The owners stopped by to make sure we have everything we need (very nice). We will be happy to come back to this beautiful house! If you are looking for vacation house, this house is the perfect choice.

A place like paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our group of twelve just spent this Labor Day long weekend at this incredible place, like one of my friend described – a place like paradise. The property is in such a secluded location yet still closes enough to traffic, restaurants and grocery shopping.

The house was roomy and clean with sufficient supply of almost everything you may need; Nancy and Joel have taken good care of the property. The clear pond and its surrounding are tranquil places, we spent joyful moments there.

There are several quality restaurants along the main street of North Creek (although we really like BBQ beside the pond, the BBQ stove was a high-quality one, BTW); we hiked to OK Slip Falls, the highest waterfall in the Adirondacks. We had terrific time there both in the property and around the area. Thanks for Nancy and Joel making the house a comfortable place to stay and local information you provided, and Kate, for your arrangement and timely replies.

Great Location, Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

The description of this house and its property did not do it justice. The home was perfect for my group of 12 that rented on the 4th of July weekend. The house was very well kept, the grounds were immaculate, and the location was supreme for a trip into the Adirondacks. It was incredibly peaceful at the end of a dead end road with a private pond that was used by us daily. The surrounding roads were beautiful, taking us through the "Adirondack Loop" for some sightseeing as well as nice restaurants and shops in the surrounding area. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable retreat and Kate was incredibly accommodating. Thanks for the great stay!
