About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Bring the family and your own personal water craft toys to beautiful Crooked Lake. This is the perfect location for leaf peeping or a ski weekend. Centrally located to just about anywhere – Albany, Saratoga Springs, Jimminy Peak, The Berkshires, Lake George, and Woodstock, Cooperstown – just to name a few.

Sit around the fire pit with a glass of wine, throw some steaks on the grill, and relax with the beautiful view.

The house is a 2400 sq. foot beautiful contemporary with large open plan on the first floor. The kitchen has a breakfast bar that seats 6. There is a downstairs full bath and a laundry room. A twin trundle bed that sleeps 2 is in the front room for easy access.

The living room boasts French doors that open out to the large deck. The dining room table can extend to seat 10 – 12 people.

The second floor contains another full bath and 3 bedrooms – one king, 1 queen size, and 2 twin beds. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan for extra comfort. There are 2 queen size sleeper sofas in the upstairs loft.

The living room and loft both have 42in flat screen t.v. with cable and blue ray players. Wireless internet and basic cable is throughout the house as well.

We ask our guest to check in no earlier than 1:00 pm and to check out no later than 11am. Please ask if different accommodations are needed.

There is no smoking on the property and no pets allowed

About Janet Reinhardt

We have been married for over 30 years - growing up in Schenectady. We are business owners and operate out of Troy, N.Y.

Janet Reinhardt purchased this house in 2001

Why Janet Reinhardt chose New York

The address is 70 Holser Rd Extension, Averill Park NY. We built our dream home back in 2001 and raised our 3 kids here. We found Averill Park and Crooked Lake while driving around looking for that special property that would be close to our business in Troy, but still give us the country living. The kids grew up and moved out. We decided to make our house available for families looking to enjoy our beautiful lake and quaint town just like we did (and still do)

What makes this house unique

Being so close to the lake and having the large deck makes this property unique. It is great for family reunions or just quiet relaxation. Crooked Lake has a nice mix of seasonal 'camps' and year round homes so no matter what time of year there are always friendly neighbors nearby. Because it is a private lake, it is never overly busy with activity. You can be as active as you want or as laid back.

Escape from the busy life to relax and enjoy this beautiful home and Crooked Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Escape from the busy life to relax and enjoy this beautiful home and Crooked Lake. Rented this home for the first time for a small family reunion with our son who’s in the Navy and my wife’s sister’s family. The home has a great open concept layout, lots of room to spread out including, 4 bedrooms and a pull out couch. There were 9 of us but we never felt cramped.

Most of our time was spent outside. The lake itself is a private lake which has many perks including not being very busy and the other boaters we encountered were very respectful. I think these 2 items made this place extra special and would always make me want to come back. If you’ve spent any time at all boating or fishing in the state parks you can relate to how some people can act and who likes to deal with that. The fishing was excellent, very clear water. View from the huge deck is outstanding. Kids and parents had lots for fun with the kayaks, row boat or just floating on our rafts. Our next favorite activity was the fire pit, it’s right by the lake and what a great way to end the day.

The property itself was very clean and well maintained, owner provided great customer service and would recommend staying here.

Quiet Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Crooked Lake, there was plenty of space for all 8 of us, with all the amenities. Our hosts were great and very responsive. My favorite part was the large patio, a great hang out spot with plenty of comfortable seating, a grill, and dining table. The large kitchen had plenty of space to do all the cooking and baking we like to enjoy on vacation.We were very happy with the overall experience.

Perfect vacation for the family

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at this vacation home. We had six adults and two small children. We were very comfortable here with four bedrooms. Having two full baths with this many people was great. All the towels and linens were provided and there is a washer and dryer if needed.

My wife and I grew up in the Capital District and have a lot of family in the area. We had multiple gatherings and were able to entertain an additional 10-20 people in comfort on the large deck and in the comfortable living area. The kitchen is a dream to prepare meals and entertain. We also put the grill on the deck to good use.

My city girl granddaughter was exposed to many new experiences. Lake swimming, kayaking, fishing and making smores at the fire pit. The dock is nice for swimming and fishing. I caught a few bass just fishing from there in the evenings.

Jan and Bill, the owners, were very welcoming and helpful. The home is located in a very nice, small neighborhood. The locals were cordial and friendly. Only a short drive into Sand Lake for anything you need.

Overall a wonderful experience for me and my family. I would definitely would do it again.
