About the property

Spend wonderful afternoons relaxing on the private dock during your stay at this 5-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom vacation rental house in the Adirondack area! With 100 feet of lake frontage, this is the ideal destination for 12 or more guests looking for a relaxing vacation on Pleasant Lake. Guests can swim, boat, and fish in the spring and summer, leaf peep in the fall, and go snowshoeing around the large property during the winter. Regardless of when you visit, you'll love your time in Stratford.


Bedroom 1 (Nicotra Room): Full Bed | Bedroom 2 (Gapstow Room): Full Bed | Bedroom 3 (Boscombe Room): Full Bed | Bedroom 4 (Lee Room): Full Bed | Bedroom 5 (Loretto Room): Twin-over-Twin Bunk Bed | Additional Sleeping: Air Mattress, Sleeping Bags

Furnished with antiques, a stone fireplace, wood-burning stove, and hardwood floors, this lake house provides guests with a rustic vacation experience on Pleasant Lake!

Curl up on the couch on chilly evenings and warm up by the fireplace. The living room is the perfect place to read a book and use the free wireless internet connection to browse your favorite websites.

If you’re able to reel in any fish from the lake, you can use the fully equipped kitchen to make delicious fish dinners for your whole travel group! For an al fresco cooking and dining experience, step out to the back deck to use the charcoal grill.

Head down to the lake as the sun begins to dip below the treeline. You can roast marshmallows over the fire pit or go for a refreshing late night swim!

Retire upstairs to one of the comfortable beds after a fun day on the lake! The first, second, third, and fourth bedrooms all have full-sized beds, and the fifth bedroom boasts a twin-over-twin bunk bed. Additional guests in your group can sleep on the provided air mattresses or in sleeping bags.


There’s no need to travel far to have fun in the Adirondack area during your stay at this vacation rental home! You can fish and swim right off the dock, and rent a boat for a fun day on the water. There are dozens of other lakes near the house, including Great Sacandaga Lake and Lake George only a half hour away.

When the temperature drops, strap on a pair of snowshoes and explore the woods. You can also rent a snowmobile for an exhilarating day in the snow. The lake is also shallow enough to ice skate on cold days!

Visit nearby cities like Saratoga Springs, Albany, and Cooperstown to see historic sites and browse unique shops.

If you don’t prepare your meals at your home-away-from-home, you can take a short drive into Stratford to dine at a number of quaint, local eateries.

Beautiful home! Relaxing environment.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 4 days here. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and cozy. Our kids spent most of their time swimming, fishing, and on the paddle boat & kayaks. We would definitely come back again!

The stench of sewage was every where.

  • 1 of 5

A sewage odor permeated the entire property. Sometimes it was so bad I had to cover my face to not gag. Otherwise we would have loved to return year after year. Maybe the sewage lines are leaking along with improper venting of the toilets which came directly onto the deck.

Owner's Response: Patricia, we're deeply sorry to hear your stay fell short of your expectations. We understand the homeowner had been in constant contact with you to accommodate your requests such as an early check-in, but we were unaware of this issue during your stay. Immediately after hearing about this situation, the septic was repaired and we can confirm what you encountered will not recur for the next guests. The homeowner works diligently to ensure all guests have the best possible experience, and we are confident this home will continue to host many satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team

Charming and delightful

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our long weekend get-a-way. Full of charm, cozy, clean and private. Our kids loved the kayaks, paddle boat, fishing off the dock and playing on the small beach. A otter family even swam up to say a quick hello. I would highly recommend this adorable house!

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 rented this house for the Labor Day weekend. We all had a great time. The house is quaint, with its rustic decor, clean, and specious. We loved the big kitchen with the extra long dining room table, and the working fireplace. Our favorite was the private dock and we really enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat. The lake is beautiful and was just the right size for us. The owner is very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this place. We will be back in the summer.
