About Margaret Foote
We have been restoring the property slowly which contains a log cabin, the cottage, a horse barn, an old wood barn, a wood shop, garage and a small vineyard, apple trees and pear trees, flower garden which are tended to daily. There are numerous trees, foliage, and we host deer, stray cats, ground hogs, turkeys, chipmunks, squirrels, and an occasional turtle. Eagles and hawks are often visitors. We love our property.
Margaret Foote purchased this Guest House in 2005
Why Margaret Foote chose Queensbury
This became a retirement project giving me a feeling of being at my dad's camp while being close to everything. We love being close to the Northway and going to Lake George, Lake Placid or Saratoga and then returning to the peace and privacy of the wooded area.
What makes this Guest House unique
If you want to relax at night by watching the stars, or watch tv they are both available. Perhaps you want to borrow a boat to fish or just paddle, it can be arranged. Although not on the river, we are just across the road. A fire pit on the owners side is often tended for a beautiful relaxing evening under the open sky.

An Oasis in the Adirondacks
We found a perfect spot in the southern Adirondacks to enjoy a week's hiking holiday in the Glens Falls, Lake George, Saratoga area.
Margaret's lovely cottage sits on a beautiful acreage. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, spacious, modern, well appointed with much attention to detail. It was an deal vacation home setting for my family of three: daughter (13) slept very well on the futon-like sofa in the living room; the washing facility and air-conditioning were a plus.
Margaret lives on the adjacent property, but we never felt our privacy was compromised, having our own barbecue and sitting area outside the back door.
Margaret was the perfect host, answering to any requests quickly.
Lots to do in the area. We found many enjoyable hikes within a half-hour drive. We visited the Saratoga Race Track, explored the Outlet Mall and the surrounding towns that make up this charming part of New York State. We even managed a little horseback riding - a must for our 13-year old!
We will be back to conquer more mountains and this will be the Oasis for us to stay!
I so enjoyed Susan's family visiting us and getting to spend time in our wonderful area enjoying the many hiking trails. They were excellent guests taking exceptional care of the cottage. They even sent us some pictures of the cottage which are way better than mine. Hope to see them again.
Tranquil cottage near Lake George - Saratoga
Just what we hoped for; very private and relaxing ... everything we could want.
Love, love, love!
As others have expressed, the pics do not do it justice. Very clean, it appears to have been renovated recently. Ms. Foote is a gem. An excellent place to stay. Convenient to everything, yet very secluded. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Really charming house and wonderful hosts!
My husband and I often vacation in the Lake George/Queensbury area and this year was no exception. This was, however, our first Homeaway rental and our experience with Margaret and her charming house was really wonderful! As others have said, the pictures don't do the house justice. It is immaculate for a "vacation cottage" and in a quiet, wooded setting, but close enough to all the activities in the Saratoga and Lake George area. Margaret was a wonderful hostess and really went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. I can't say enough good things about this place. We hope to come back again some day.
I have just started renting my cottage this year and the best part of it has been meeting some wonderful people. It was great to sit and share stories around the firepit and just relaxing with you guys on the deck sharing our life tories. Thank you for being great renters and wonderful people willing to share your time (and great cookies) with us. Look forward to seeing you again.
We had a wonderful 3 day weekend at this cottage. It is very well appointed and well situated in relation to all we wanted to do. We were able to visit Fort Ticonderoga Saratoga National Park and the lake George area. So glad we stayed here instead of in hotel in more crowded areas. We were close to nice grocery store and variety of eating choices in Glen Falls Queensbury area. Loved the homemade ice cream at Coopers Cave Ale Company! Hope we can return!
Great home with wonderful and friendly owners.
The property is on a dead end road located between Saratoga and Lake George off the NYS Northway (Rt 87) Exit 18. It is very private but close enough to make trips to Saratoga Casino, Racetrack or Polo very easy. At the base of the Adirondacks trips to Lake George are minutes away. Vermont is an easy 1 hour trip and Lake Placid 1 1/2. Albany if 45 minutes.
Additional pricing information
