Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on this beautiful mountainside in a comfy house with everything we needed to enjoy our time there. The view is beyond amazing. The constant shifting of light and clouds on the mountains is mesmerizing. Sunrise, sunset, stars, and we woke up to about 6 inches wondrous fluffy snow. The best! Lots to do all around which we hope can explore more the next time we can come--Saratoga, Lake George, Hildene, Manchester, Bennington, fishing on the Battenkill, Grandma Moses, and just being peaceful in a beautiful place. The owners were very helpful, promptly available and friendly. Thanks to the caretaker, too, who is very attentive. Hope to be back someday!

Beautiful views, and a wonderfully secluded property! Our group had an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends had a blast. The house and views really are a thing to behold. Huge private property, so we barely felt the need to go anywhere! We just hiked around and enjoyed the scenery. All the house's ammenities were very reliable despite it being an off the grid property. We will definitely book this again!

The best VRBO property we've ever rented--and there have been many.

  • 5 of 5

Three couples in our group (from Minnesota) - everyone raves about the property, the comfortable accommodations, and the breathtaking view (especially sunrises!). We had the advantage of perfect weather for the 6 day stay, and spent most of our time on the deck enjoying the surroundings & solitude, cookouts on the nice, big grill and evenings by the wonderful gas fire pit. Great spot for various day-trips (for us, included: Ticonderoga, Glens Falls (Adirondack Balloon Festival), Lake George, Saratoga Springs and Manchester VT). Though we typically prefer not to see the same place twice, this might be an exception. This VRBO property made our vacation one of our best ever. Matt Eagan MN

Wonderful place to get away and spend quality family time.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay. Owners extremely nice and helpful. We spent five wonderful days enjoying the spectacular views, weather, and wildlife. Saw rabbits, deer and several species of birds. The house was very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The pictures that were posted did not due the place justice, it is absolutely spectacular.

Another great visit!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time returning to this home. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises, watched thunderstorms, were stunned by bright rainbows, delighted in the meteor shower, ate too much, laughed really hard.

This house feels like home for our annual family reunion. Thanks again for opening it up to us!
