The property is exactly as described and the views were amazing.

  • 5 of 5

I would 100% come back here with a large group of friends. House accommodates wonderfully and is close to town with a feel of being away from it all.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideal for a weekend away with a group! Glenda was extremely accommodating, kind, and we couldn't have asked for a better set up. The driveway is challenging, but we found that all cabs and deliveries were able to get to the house without a problem. It's located about 10 minutes from downtown Lake George, so ideal if you want to easy access to bars and restaurants. Overall, we had a great time and the house was great!

4.5 Stars - Amazing Views, Great Location, Good Property

  • 4 of 5

First, I cannot stress enough how amazing the views from this house are. My family has stayed in the LG region numerous times over the years, and we were blown away at the scenic peaceful nature this property provided. The house feels like it's on top of a mountain of it's own, and the view from the deck stretches out across the valley containing Warrensburg to what we believed was the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks.

I was a little worried about the location at first, but really came to like it after a day or so. It's removed from the crowds you find in the Village, and because Warrensburg is more residential than tourist, the amenities there were far better suited to people renting a house. We were able to get whatever we didn't pack form the Price Chopper (5 mins away) and found an amazing local pizza place (The Pizza Shop - 5 stars!) that still only took 25 mins to make our (rather large) order - try finding that downtown LGV! Very peaceful and tranquil out here, and still only a short drive from downtown Lake George. It's also very close to the highway, so it's both very easy to find, and is a great place if you're interested in exploring either north (Ticongeroga/Lake Champlain) or south (Saratoga) of LG itself.

Regarding the property itself, the driveway is a lot tougher than we anticipated from the reviews here. Luckily we had two separate 4WD vehicles, so it was never a problem, even with the rainy weather we had, but I would have been nervous about some of the FWD cars making it down/up if we had a severe storm.

There are plenty of beds in the house, and you could very easily fit up to the advertised 17 people if you don't mind sharing the space. If you're more looking for a family vacation, I'd probably recommend limiting it to 6 or so adults, otherwise you're sleeping on couches or sharing bedrooms.

The house could certainly use a little TLC, there were a handful of items that my family noticed around the property that could use a little fixing up, but none of them were significant

or took away from our vacation in any way.

Honestly, we had a great time, and the only reason I didn't rate this property 5 stars is that it wasn't quite as nice as some other places we've rented over the past couple years (granted none of those were in the LG region). I would have gone with 4.5 stars if that was an option.

Owner's Response: I want to begin by thanking you for the 4.5 star rating. Sounds like your vacation went well. I guess the only question I would have is that the 17 person sleeping arrangement does not include any couches. If you mean "futons" then you would be accurate. On the main floor is 2 bedrooms and they have 1 queen, 3 full beds and a twin. That's a total of 9 in beds. Upstairs is a king that sleeps 2 and a Queen futon in the loft that sleeps 2. That's 4. And in the game room there is a full bed, a queen futon and another full futon mattress for the floor, that all total sleeps 5-6. 9 plus 4 plus 5 is actually 18 with no one on a couch. All the linens are also provided in baskets by the futons. You may have not noticed this. Again, thanks so much and please consider a revisit. Glenda

Beautiful home and breathtaking view!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in this home for two nights after our senior prom. We were 15 minutes from Lake George village and the outlets. We played yard games, had fires, and sat out on the balcony taking in the incredible view of the mountains. We cooked big meals as we had 17 people and the kitchen/grilling area were spacious enough for all of us. Glenda stopped by to check on us and was very accommodating and helpful to my questions. Baskets were left in the bathrooms with all necessary toiletries. Getting up the driveway is a little difficult without 4WD but it is definitely possible. Pictures do't do it justice. We were literally in awe when we drove up the driveway to see this house, and even more so when we walked upstairs to see the gorgeous wrap around balcony overlooking the mountains!

Beautiful House 15 minutes from Lake George

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I rented this house for the weekend and were overall very happy with the place. First of all, I have to agree with other reviews that the pictures don't do the house justice. It is a large, very open and spacious layout that is hard to capture in a photo. It was well stocked with towels, and well supplied with additional toiletries in case anyone forgot something. The appliances in the kitchen were restaurant-grade, and the set-up allowed for multiple people to cook at the same time, which was very convenient when we had our big 10-person dinner. There were a good amount of cooking utensils and cookware (the can openers were difficult to use, and we couldn't find any scissors, but everything else we needed seemed to be available).

Also, the views from the deck and from the loft were unbelievable.. the most perfect views of Autumn in the Adirondacks Region! The driveway was pretty steep and rocky, but my little Jetta was able to make it up just fine with a bit of maneuvering. There was more than enough room for multiple cars at the top of the driveway.

There were two grocery stores within a 5 minute drive and gas stations and other shops as well. The drive to Lake George Village was only around 15 minutes. (sidenote: Apparently, Lake George has a seasonal traffic police force, so at some point in the fall, they stop checking meters and you don't have to pay. We put several quarters in the meter before someone told us that they haven't checked meters since Labor Day... if you are parking in the village off-season, ask a local business if they are still checking meters!)

Glenda was very quick to respond to my inquiries before the stay. I was confused about the number of beds/sleeping arrangements in each room, and she wrote back quickly to clear that up for me. As it turns out, I only had 10 people, so sleeping arrangements weren't a problem, but it was helpful to know where we could have fit 17 people if need be. There were some plumbing issues from the loft area the night before we left (shower leaked a bit into one of the bedrooms, and clogged toilet caused a small leak into the kitchen area). We left a message with Glenda and the issues were not resolved during our stay, though we told her that the leak from the shower stopped and we just avoided using the upstairs toilet for our last morning, so hopefully they were resolved after we left! I think most of my friends would be happy to stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for letting us know about your positive stay and yes, the issue was resolved promptly. I'm really not sure why the toilet plugged, but was an easy fix. Thanks so much, again. Glenda

Awesome Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome. It was private and the pictures didn't do the house justice. We loved the fire pit and Glenda and her husband were more than accommodating.

When we arrived, the first thing I did was check the grill to make sure that we had enough gas for the night. It didn't appear to be enough so I called Glenda and her husband came right away with another tank for us.

We appreciated Kent going out of his way to bring us a lot of firewood.

Thank for your wonderful hospitality, I look forward to staying at another one of your properties in the future.
