About Richard Emard

It is close to many things for vacationers an still all the amenities within walking distance. I live next door. with my faience. I moved here in 1999 from CT.

Between the two of us we can recommend all the wright places to go and introduce you to the locals.

The owner Richard was an amazing host!!!! We did not want to leave. My family has been renting vacation homes at least once a year for the last five years and this is by far the best one yet. The house is in a friendly little town located just 30 minutes from lake George and Saratoga springs. Lots of things to do in and out of town :)
The house is very well equipped with everything you may need from towels, blankets, extra mattress , house hold supplies and kitchen ware. The house is very specious and our group of ten was very comfortable.
We enjoyed the pool and all the pool toys. We took advantage of all the things he has for the kids
Badminton, lacrosse, frisbee
Water guns, basketball hoop
We have four boys 12-16in our group
And they always had things to do.
The fire pit was a great end to end each night :)
The sound of the creek running to the back yard was an added plus to out you right to sleep at the end of a fun day. We recommend this home to anyone!
We will for sure be back !!!!!
Thank you for the great review. I am glad you enjoyed the place so much. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Thanks Richard
An awesome house
Booked this location for 3 nights and was not disappointed. Bigger than it looks in the pics. 3 LARGE bedrooms with 6 beds, along with a fold-out futon and 2 comfy couches, 2 bathrooms, enclosed front and back porch. Everything we needed for our stay, full kitchen and linens, grill, burn pit w wood, screened enclosure. Could hear the creek running out back at night. Very new and clean. 20 minute drive to the Lake George area, 15 minutes to a large grocery store, very scenic everywhere. The owner met us on arrival and stopped by everyday to see if there were any issues, very hands-on. A bar/restaurant literally across the street, full extensive menu for lunch and dinner. A small breakfast place around the corner................be very hungry if you order the pancakes, just sayin'. Would definitely stay here again.
A wonderful host and a super clean house.
Richard is a great host. He is very friendly and a real pleasure to talk to.
The house is super clean ,warm and equipped with all necessities + more.
Sheets and towels, pots and pans and dinnerware, even paper plates if one is not in the mood to do the dishes!
Richard even put flashlights in all the bedrooms!
The house is 30 min drive from Gore Mountain. Perfect location for ski lovers.
We had a great weekend and we were very comfortable resting after a day of skiing in the inviting and warm house.
We are looking forward to our next getaway in Stony Creek.
We stayed in this house for a New Year weekend. The house is very clean, well maintained. The area where the house is located is absolutely stunning. Richard, the owner of the house, is great. His house is next door, and if you need something, he is extremely helpful. For the skiers, the Gore mountain is about 35 min. drive. We also went to West mountain, which is about 30 min. away, but it is small and funky. Overall highly recommend. Leo
We recently had our annual family gathering. This house was perfect for us and met all of our needs. Richard, the owner was very pleasant and a delight to speak with. He made some excellent suggestions for restaurants and family fun! The house was very clean and neat and had everything that was required. There were plenty of linens and towels and the kitchen was fully equipped. Richard was very accommodating and even went out of his way to purchase an air mattress for our large family. One of my favorite times was having coffee sitting on a rock in the creek and relaxing in the screened in porch. We also enjoyed the pool and had some great conversations in the pool with the kids. The location is very central and close to all of the Lake George activities. The house is near a restaurant and tavern and yet it was still peaceful and quiet. There is also a nearby convenience store which was appreciated. Stony Creek is a treasure and a wonderful area to retreat to after a full day of activity. I would definitely stay here again.
A very nice cottage in the Adirondack Mountains
We stayed in Richard's cottage in early August 2016. While we were expecting the property to be close to Lake George Village, it is actually about 25 minutes outside of town in the very small town of Stony Creek. The drive to the cottage was very easy. Stony Creek is a stereotypical "one stop sign town", and the locals were extremely friendly and welcoming. The house itself is very well kept, with the kitchen being provisioned better than any other rental property we have stayed at. Knives, cooking utensils, toaster, blender, and coffee maker (coffee even provided). There was also a fairly new and very well maintained Char-Broil gas grill. There is a brand new screen house in the back yard, which we took advantage of every night for cocktails with our family. Most important is Richard. It is obvious that Richard truly wants his guests to have a good experience. He stopped over every morning for a quick visit to make sure we didn't need anything and that everything was working ok. He's an extremely friendly guy who is a wealth of information about the local area. Bottom line, if you want to be in the middle of the action in Lake George Village this probably isn't the place for you. If you want to stay in a nice place in a beautiful setting, this is a great place. Our compliments to Richard, this is how all rental property owners should be.

Stony Creek is a town located in the Southern Adirondacks.
In town there are many activities; horse back riding, hiking, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, and 2 bars, one with a restaurant and live music. Outside of town within 20-30 mi. there are many other things to do. There are several lakes for boating, fishing, and water sports. One of the main lakes is Lake George which has many other things to do such as diner cruises, para sailing, miniature golf, arcades, outlet shopping, fine dining, and 6 Flags Great Escape Amusement Park. The great Saratoga Race Track is about a 45 minute drive away, Also in Saratoga are many fine restaurants, antique shops, and the Raceino. Once a year for 5 days is a large motorcycle event in Lake George called Americade. About 30 minutes north is Gore Mountain Ski Resort for snow skiing, skating, and tubing.
