About Randy

Both my wife and I (Randy and Kathy) grew up in Scotia-Glenville and have raised two grown children, now both successful teachers in Science and Art. After a 34 year career GE Research I accepted a faculty position at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. I am also an Instructor and Senior Engineer at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. My wife Kathy is a coordinator arranging CT and MRI scans and procedures for the kids at the hospital also. Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is one of the top Children's hospitals in the country. It is a very exciting for us to help the children. Our daughter and son in law are our property managers and take care of the home as their own.

Randy purchased this house in 2013

Why Randy chose Capital Saratoga

Growing up with a camp (west of the lake house about 18 miles) on the Great Sacandaga Lake, has given us so many great memories. To find such a great home on the Great Sacandaga Lake was a dream come true for us. We plan to retire in five or so years and enjoy all it has to offer. Super quiet location, 2.5 acres of private land, 400 ft of water frontage only 100 or so feet away below on a very low traveled country road off the main road. The steps to the beach are short with a small picnic area with a table and dock.

What makes this house unique

This home was designed by a fellow GE engineer and it shows. The house is built with quality you just do not see. The granite dual fireplace, one in the Great Room, the other in the 20 x 22 ft vaulted Master Suite is a masterpiece and the cost was over $20K alone. Our only neighbors are on one side and have a magnificent home themselves and are wonderful people who also help us care for the home just as good neighbors. Our Lake house has been totally refurnished with high quality upgrades, new furniture, TV, etc.

We were disappointed with the condition of property, the garage was loaded with spiders,we had to take out other people's trash to the curb. ants in kitchen, appliances in the kitchen were dirty and old, the micro wave door did not close.the grass was not mowed in the back yard, the deck was very dirty like no one had been their for a long time, a bunch of wet plillow cases in the dryer. My wife thought the master bedroom dresser draws were dirty so we did not put our clothes in them.

Owner's Response: Well Jay, this is a real surprise since we spoke at arrival. Take a look at all our reviews. Nearly all 5 stars of 26 reviews. The trash and recycle items are a community effort on the part of all guests. We cannot change the town pickup days to suit. It's a high grade roller can with a cover. Just adding to it is easy. It's never been an issue for any guest(s) in four years. Sorry it was an issue for you. The deck was stained two weeks before your arrival. The tree pollen and recent rain storms has caused the deck to look that way. It already has been washed. Also our landscapers could not cut the grass because of the unusual constant rain. The previous two reviews were 5 stars. Just before you. We cannot control Mother Nature. Sorry. As far as the other cleaning issues that again is a real surprise. We have professional cleaners come in after every guest. A full home cleaning including linens, hardwood treated, dusting and vacuuming , and full deep cleaning. We pay a premium for this. I find this a surprise. We have contacted our cleaners to check with them. Our previous reviews raved about the spotless home. The refrigerator and microwave are 3 years old, yet we already ordered a new microwave and it will be delivered on the 28th. We just had the lakehouse inspected by a family member last Saturday and I can assure you it is spotless as the crews got in after the weather broke. This is the Adirondacks. Again we cannot control the weather or a few ants. I am there for all my guests. I can get things fixed fast. I mention this to everyone. My response time is less than an hour. Again thanks for your review. All we can do is to hope the weather cooperates and we can check with our professional cleaners.... which we have already. They are true professionals. They can come and help if necessary if a guest has issues. This is our fourth year renting. We have never had an issue. Again we have had rave reviews. We can fix anything that is in my power, if necessary. Just need to ask. Take care, Randy

Pretty and Spacious Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property for a girls weekend. There was plenty of space for the 7 of us to spread out, but still be together in common areas to hang out and eat meals. The house was beautiful and had all of the essentials. Highly recommend staying here!

Absolutely fantastic! Beautifully appointed, clean house, great location. Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the house and the view. Wish we had more time, but we'll be back as we need to do a little more exploring in the area.

House was appointed nicely and the kitchen was nice. We enjoyed a nice glass of wine outside on the deck...ok...maybe two glasses of wine;).

Had a very relaxing time and we look forward to staying there again.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home and setting for our family Thanksgiving. The home was clean and the owner was very involved in ensuring we had everything we needed, a pleasure to deal with. The home had everything we needed. It is nice to have owners that are willing to share their property with others through Home Away, thank you! We will definitely use home away again and recommend it to others. Great experience !

Great Lake Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Our family just vacationed for a week in August at this beautiful home on Lake Sagandaga . This house is everything the pictures show and more ! The home is immaculately kept inside and has a nice deck and large gazebo on the deck with table and chairs for 8 where we played a Monopoly marathon thru a rainy day. Randy was so easy to work with, believe me, I had LOTS of questions and he quickly and honestly answered every one. The beds and linens were super comfy and there were plenty of towels to go around. It was nice not to have to pack all that stuff. We enjoyed the large dock , sitting out by the water and fishing and since we brought our boat up , we explored the lake almost every day. If you have access to a boat, check out Sand Island at the other end of the lake. About a 35-40 minute ride by boat, but well worth the trip ! Packed up lunch, beach chairs, the grandkids and the dog and had a wonderful day ! The lake is very shallow around the island and the water was 81 degrees !!! The road in front on the house was pretty quiet and the grandkids had fun riding their bikes down to the park by the dam. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need - we cooked in every night and wanted for nothing. The nearest town is about 10-15 minutes away and there is a Topps grocery store for whatever you might need. There is a long steep driveway and several sets of steps down a pretty steep incline to the lake that may be a problem if you have mobility issues ( I have a bad knee, so it was a tough walk). We went into Lake George one afternoon (about 30 minutes) and Saratoga State Park is a beautiful huge park with a beautiful pool ($2 a person!) All in all, we had a great relaxing vacation at beautiful Lake Sagandaga! We will return !!! Thanks Randy and Kathy for allowing us to share your beautiful lake house !!

We liked this vacation spot so much, we came back! I hiked Moreau, a trail behind the Overlook, and a trail in Northville. We kayaked, fished, and swam from the dock; the no-wake zone is a pleasant feature. We played tennis 15 minutes away in Luzerne. We thought about going to breakfast at the track, but slept in, instead. This will always be the famous vacation when we went skydiving!

If I'm honest, I will admit the boys made full use of the wifi. My niece also used it to work here remotely on Friday and enjoy the evening and weekend with us.

We watched several movies on DVD in the living room and made full use of the kitchen, fire ring, and deck. We hosted dinner more often this year because the large deck was roomy enough that it was easier for a family member who uses a walker to get around. Family came and went over the course of the week by car, Amtrak, kayak, and foot. The house held us all, 4 to 16, and my very happy dog.

With great mountain and lake views, quiet seclusion with your own 400ft water front on 2.5 acres, it is an excellent vacation lake house to enjoy. Expansive granite fireplace in both the Great Room and Master Suite overlooking the lake and mountains. Enjoy time off on the very large deck with Gazebo, just off the kitchen-dinette area. The home sits majestically on a hill so views are plenty. Famous Saratoga Horse Track is 30 minutes away, as is equally famous Saratoga Springs. Great Escape Theme Park with rides, water park, etc is also 20-30 minutes away. Great dining is only 15 minutes way.
