It's every bit as nice as the photos suggest

  • 5 of 5

We spent three very relaxing nights there over Skidmore graduation weekend. The house is stunning, beautifully appointed in Adirondack camp style, and offers a gorgeous vantage point on Galway Lake. We would have loved to check out the kayaking but just couldn't fit it in. There is always next time. Also thanks to Dennis the landlord and the nice couple who take care of the place. They were all very thoughtful and accommodating.

Comfortable and clean on a beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our few days on Galway Lake were wonderful! The house and property are as described - it was clean, comfortable and cool when it got too hot outside. Our group of 5 women celebrating a birthday had ample room to be separate from each other when we wanted, but also cook and eat together as well as enjoy the outside area as a group. The use of a canoe, paddle boards and two kayaks kept us entertained outside during the day - and we also enjoyed sitting on the lawn and enjoying the beauty of Galway Lake, albeit with multiple cocktails.

A few things to note:

-There is a house right next door (not seen in the images) which initially made it feel less private but in the end everyone kept to themselves and the neighbors were friendly.

-The water is filled with tall weeds- but the owner gave us very clear advice and when we took the boats out, far from the dock and to the right, we were able to swim.

- There are a lot more taxidermied animals in the house then expected- so if you aren't

cool with that, this house is not for you. Looking again, I see that this is clear from the

images - I just somehow missed it.

- The beds and linens were comfortable and very clean. Lots of towels.

- There is a large Price Chopper not far that has everything you will need.

- It is worth getting up early and going out on the lake in a boat.

- The home has air conditioning throughout - that you can adjust easily.

- Though we didn't have children with us - it seems like a very good place to bring them.

- You are basically paying for the proximity to the lake, the outdoor area, proximity to

Saratoga, and a clean home with a good host. This is not a luxury rental - though

everything you will need, you will have.

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well maintained with all the amenities you need for a relaxing vacation. Well stocked kitchen for cooking and grilling, water kayaks, paddle board and canoe, large screen TV and comfortable sleeping. Great location to visit surrounding towns in the area. I have rented this house twice and plan to return.

Beautiful Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect. All of the comforts of home...but with the backdrop of a gorgeous lake in a quiet and peaceful setting. All we really needed to do was show up... everything is there! When we planned the trip, we did so thinking we would make trips into nearby Saratoga Springs- however we found that once we were at the lake, we didn't want to leave! We never wandered more than 6 miles away- and that was only to get food!!

The views of the lake from the house are breathtaking, the house is beautiful and your own private dock is right outside the back door. The owner is responsive, attentive and helpful- but not intrusive in any way. The only problem with this house is having to leave when your vacation is over!!

Beautiful property, relaxing weekend.

  • 5 of 5

My family were looking for a place to get away from it all for a long weekend and this property fit the bill perfectly. A couple of days lounging around the house and the lake, a half day hike up Hadley Mountain, and another half day in Saratoga Springs. Just what we were looking for.
