About Owner/Manager Glenda Duell

My name is Glenda and I grew up in the Town of Thurman where this house is located. I graduated from the local Warrensburg Central School and other than college time, have lived here all my life. Have visited other places, but I love life and the mountains here.

Owner/Manager Glenda Duell purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner/Manager Glenda Duell chose Athol

I live just a few miles from this house and we decided to buy it because we considered it a great investment. The property was close to town and the house needed some TLC. We gave it that and more. We thoroughly enjoyed working and upgrading the house to it's present condition.

What makes this house unique

This property has a quiet brook running through the back of the property. Trout fishing, too! we have just installed a wonderful inground swimming pool. Please consider reading the positive'reviews' at our other vacation rental at vrbo# 300732 and know that we strive for the same great service here.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

Glends, the owner, could not have been more helpful! 2 days before arriving I sent an inquiry as to how many refrigerators she had. I needed one for the wedding cake. Otherwise we would have had all our food in coolers. Glenda had a fridge delivered to the porch for us! I couldn't believe it! I would definitely book with her again. Especially anyone using Burlap and Beams as a venue. The house was definitely perfect for the bridesmaids. We used the downstairs to do all the up dos. Lots of space. Pool table. Just perfect for us!

Owner's Response: So happy things went well and thanks so much for letting us know. It means a lot to our hard working staff. Many happy memories with the wedding! Glenda

The house is great, could use a little updating in the rooms. It’s great for a group of people!

  • 4 of 5

When we got to the house and we were shocked with how many places you could sleep in the house. The house could use a little updating, but it’s a nice place to stay if you’re in and out of the house during your stay. We were provided with a lot of towels which was awesome for the pool. We had a big group of us that stayed in the house and it worked out great. We hung out on the outer deck of the house, which had a lot of seats to sit around the table. The pool was perfect temperature as well. I highly recommend staying here if you’re wanting a weekend away. The yard is very big as well. The house is better than it looks in the pictures.

this house needs some love

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Lake George is beautiful, Glenda was nice, kids loved the pool, everyone liked having bonfires together at night, house is within driving distance to lots of attractions, everyone had fun playing pool (pool table could use a few new sticks though)

Cons: house smelled musty and stale, house needs lots of TLC, no keys were left for us upon arrival (which Glenda quickly took care of), refrigerator was not working because freezer needed to be defrosted upon arrival (which we did ourselves), housekeeping (wait what housekeeping, not sure why I was charged for this), there was no hot water....ever (and then we realized that if we turned the dial to cold we got hot water, lol).

Once we cleaned up the house and aired it out it was fine. Our family had a great time in LG. Hope this review helps potential renters.

Property needs refurbishing. And actually wasn't big enough for our group with 6 small children

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time, many +s about house - pool, fire pit, parking, garbage & recycle removal was fantastic, hospitality basket was very sweet, house was very clean, Echo Lake was great,

BUT hot water ran out constantly, no plug for tub in lower bath with small children made bath time challenging, kitchen too small to eat together, cooking utensils not really usable - in bad shape, no space to put our food in cabinets, not much room to move around in living room,

Would need large home for future trip which of course is my fault.

Owner's Response: I have spoken to the maintenance people about the tub plug and one is now there. It was overlooked but had we known we could have had one there for you as well. We'll also take a closer look to see about purchasing more cooking utensils. This is the first complaint about not enough hot water. Many hot water heaters have dual elements and if only 1 is not working it can cause this problem. We will certainly replace it if it's faulty. Glenda

Dissapointing home stay

  • 1 of 5

On the first day the heating system and microwave didn't work. The pool wasn't also not clean. Though the owner/manager Glenda tried to help us, one of the guy who came to repair was rude/sarcastic to us as if we rented the place for free and this we didn't like at all. We drove a lot and came to enjoy our stay but his behaviour was not good and this spoiled our mood also...We feel that atleast the owner should check basic things before the guest arrived. LG is a beautiful place but there are lot of bugs outside during hot and humid days so watch out especially during hiking...

Owner's Response: When these guests arrived it was an unusually rainy and chilly day. May usually doesn't require heat, but when the attempt was made to turn it on, we were called and the technician inspected and said it needed a part. The part was replaced within an hour and no further problems. There were electric fireplaces used during the hour of repair. No one was left cold. Mechanical things do break and we are prepared. The guests said the microwave didn't work and a new one was delivered within 20 minutes. I, Glenda, am in charge of all the hired help, and although it is now being written in a review, I wasn't told at the time there was a rude employee . If I had been, I certainly would have addressed it . I can't now as I don't know who it was. If known , it's certainly not tolerated. As for the pool, it is vacuumed and chlorinated with each new guest and also serviced during the week if guests have extended stays. Again, no report to me was made at the time. It's really unfair that a guest would write a negative report after the fact, but say nothing to us during their stay. Especially since we were there on the property. I personally delivered the new microwave myself that I keep on hand for just such instances. The pool appeared crystal clear and inviting to me when I delivered the microwave. Overall I hope they enjoyed their stay. Glenda
