Why The Owner chose Argyle

Pat grew up vacationing at Cossayuna Lake in the cabin next door that her grandfather built in the 1950's. With other family members on the lake and wonderful memories of idyllic summer days of youth, there was nowhere else Pat wanted to be. The quiet, rural setting of Cossayuna Lake reminds Ricardo of his beautiful, native Colombia.

What makes this cottage unique

We sit on this quiet, beautiful lake yet we're so close to Vermont and to Saratoga Springs that excitement is just around the corner. The lake provides a perfect respite in August from the crowds and excitement of the flat track at Saratoga yet provides easy access to it as well. There are lovely art museums, and live summer theatre just a short drive away.

Peaceful Quiet Lake

  • 4 of 5

Pat was wonderful to work with and met me at the house to show me everything. The house was in great condition and plenty of room - screened in porch great area to spend the nights playing board games. Property did not get too much sun - after noon the deck area was sunny. Having all boats included was great, we used the pontoon, kayaks and paddle boats. Rope swing on little island across from house was great for the boys. Small beach area had plenty of weeds and shallow so limited area to play in water for younger kids if that is what you are looking for. We took plenty of day trips- all within 45 mins: Lake George, Saratoga Springs Race Track, tons of breweries (R S Taylor & sons about 5mins away - great local hangout! and Common Roots good as well) and we even took a ride to Dorset VT to the marble quarry for some cliff jumping. Fishing was not too great at this lake - but very quiet place to kayak without worrying about boat traffic. Thank you Pat, my family had a nice relaxing vacation at your place. Dawn R

The most relaxing weekend of our lives

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I and another couple needed a place to stay the weekend of the Dave Matthews Concert. It was our first time renting a home. Within 30 minutes of arrival we all decided to ditch the concert and relax by the lake. It was the most relaxing weekend I have ever had. The house has all the amenities anyone could ask for. There was nothing we needed. You can tell the owners love this home and want others to love it as well. It was extremely clean. The beds were very comfortable. Everything is so organized and easy to find. The little details really stood out. I loved the hammock and screened in porch the best. My boyfriend loved the fishing on the lake. Our friends loved kayaking and the fire pit at night. The best kept secret is the pontoon boat. After researching so many other homes and what others charge, its unbelievable what you get for the price. Stay here, you will not find a better place with more grcaious hosts. ( Just dont book before we do, because we are already planning on going back at the end of summer)

Cossayuna Lake - A Welcome Respite

  • 5 of 5

I'm a senior who had been traveling around upstate NY, Long Island and and Connecticut for about a month and was more than ready to get back to my home in Portland. This was my last stop and boy am I glad I did! I met an old friend there and we stayed for 3 days in bliss. We took out the pontoon boat and just talked as we cruised the lake checking out the shoreline and the waterfowl. The screened porch was airy and cool even as the day heated up and we ate and played cards in comfort. The night breezes cooled us down after an active day outside. The furniture is comfortable, the place smells great and feels like home. I unwound totally and was truly sorry to leave. I plan on being there again next year and bringing my sister.
