Very charming and nice amenities

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was getting married at Lanzi's on the Lake so we wanted to find a place closely situated to the restaurant. Your place was 7 minutes drive and had more than adequate number of beds for our small party. On the outside your place looks like many lakeside camps. but when we entered it was clear it was very special inside. My mother coudn't stop the compliments as she explored the downstairs. It was early October and the nights were chilly, we were concerned that it would be cold, but the downstairs fireplace heater did a great job heating the place. My mother stayed downstairs and my wife and I stayed upstairs. The only word of caution is that the spiral stairs may be more than some older folks can handle. But as for me, I've always found them to add character and the kids like them as well. All the appliances are up to date, the place is clean and bathrooms modern and nice, blankets, sheets and towels provided. There are clear instructions and notes all around for the renter to follow.

Thank you for working with me to secure your camp for this special weekend. You went above and beyond to communicate with me and ensure that we had a place to call home for two the two nights we needed it.

Great place for a family get away

Very clean and updated waterfront home. The owners were great to deal with and even called the first night to make sure everything was ok and as we expected. Would recommend.

Home is cozy in a quiet neighborhood. Lovely view!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is wonderful and attentive to renters. It was very easy to settle in and enjoy the surroundings. We had six kids and four adults and we're comfortable. You have everything you need just bring food and get ready to relax!

Owner's Response: Although I did not have a face to face meeting with these renters I enjoyed our many conversations leading up to their arrival. I'm glad that they found the home accommodating to their needs. I do think the open area on the second floor with queen futons makes a fun area for children to gather and sleep away from adults. Very glad you had fun!

Very pleasant stay at this cottage in Mayfield

  • 5 of 5

Owner: Very responsive and helpful.

Location of the cottage: Excellent. Nice sandy beach on quiet inlet perfect for swimming. Lots of outdoor seating areas for both sun and shade. Sunoco gas station with full-service deli at the end of the street. Full grocery store and Walmart only 15 minutes away in Gloversville. Several nice restaurants within a 10 minute drive. One thing to note that you cannot see in the pictures is that there are houses close by on either side of the cottage, so if you are seeking complete privacy and isolation this is not the location for you.

Cottage: Very good. The furnishings are typical camp style. The bathrooms and kitchen were nice and clean. Some of the nick-nacks could use a good dusting and cobwebs cleared away, but overall the cottage was clean. There is a ton of seating inside and on the deck for groups and the lot can accommodate several cars for parking. Cottage is stocked with just about everything imaginable. Air conditioning in late August was adequate. It is a bit of a hike down to the beach and back, but there is a deck halfway down so you can rest.

The only constructive criticism I can offer is that there is quite a bit of "junk" around the property under the cottage, near the shed, on the beach (as noted in a previous review) that should be cleared away. It is an eyesore and a safety issue especially for children, particularly anything stacked vertically (against a tree, side of building, etc.)

Overall, we had a great time at the cottage and enjoyed our time in Mayfield very much. We would definitely return to this property and would recommend it.

Owner's Response: We appreciate both the good and the constructive criticism comments made by this guest. We put a basement in the property this past spring and found ourselves quite short on time when the rental season started. Those guest who love a very neat environment won't have to wait much longer for us to comply to perfection on the outside. We have a 3 hour turnaround to make home ready for a new occupant so sometimes extra cleaning inside gets short changed. Hope to have you return some day thanks for 5 star review

Perfect Adirondack Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was more than I had hoped for. Its setting was gorgeous - nestled in the trees AND right on the lake. It was spacious, clean, and had every imaginable comfort of home. The deck on the main level is where we spent most of our time while at the cabin, although in the morning I enjoyed coffee on the upper deck.

We brought our own kayaks and found the beachfront to be very easy access in and out of the water, not only for our boats but for ourselves, too. Swimming was great and the cove was quiet day and night.

The street that this cottage is on is lovely. We enjoyed cool, quiet morning walks with great scenery of the lake, trees, and pretty gardens. (We liked the area so much we checked out a home for sale.)

The upstairs loft and 2 bedrooms afford a lot of room for a larger party than ours (4 adults). One couple stayed downstairs (king bed) and we stayed upstairs (king bed), enjoying more privacy and space than we had anticipated.

The owners were terrific to work with. Marilyn checked on us while we were there but we didn't need a thing. She had seen to our every need. If I could I'd spend a few weeks every August at this charming cabin in the woods.

We had an awesome time at the lake. Thank you Marilyn and family for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. All the comforts and conveniences were at our fingertips. We had 8 guests stay comfortably during one of the hottest weeks of the year. The air conditioning sure did make for a great nights sleep. The property has a warm cozy feeling. The fishing was fantastic... the lake offers fishing for any type of angler. And my guys are serious about their fishing! Marliyn is one of the most gracious hosts I have had the absolute pleasure meeting. We will definitely stay again and again.
