This lakeside Adirondack house is 10 minutes from the southern portion of beautiful Lake Champlain, 35 miles from the summertime hot spot of Lake George Village (Six Flags!), and 30 miles from the town of Ticonderoga and their famous fort, Fort Ticonderoa. The Saratoga track and casino is 45 minutes from the house, and an hour's drive gets you to Manchester, Vermont, which offers high-end outlet shopping (think Coach), as well as Mount Equinox, and the Lincoln summer mansion, "Hildene." Ninety minutes north takes you to caving and rafting sites, and the annual Adirondack Hot Air Balloon Festival is in nearby Queensbury. There are numerous farm stands and apple orchards for family outings in the fall. Located on the border of New York and Vermont, it is perfect for families, a romantic getaway, a girls' week away, and fishermen (bring your own equipment).
TWENTY-NINE STEPS bring you down to the private, cozy lakefront home with three sizable yards (!), a nice-sized deck facing the water, three bedrooms (one queen, one full, three twins) and two baths. It is situated on a quiet, well-maintained road. Fish from the rowboat, canoe, pedal boat, kayak, or from the dock. The lake has a picturesque mountain as a backdrop. (Sorry, no motorized boats are allowed on this lake...).
Nearby towns play host to many events, such as Americade, the Adirondack (hot air) Balloon Festival, weekly fireworks and boat cruises on Lake George, hiking, waterfalls, and much more!
This warm and inviting getaway, complete with linens, household supplies, and washer and dryer, is ready to go… (See the online video tab on home page.)

If your arrival date is within the two-month mark then payment is due in full at the time of booking. All monies are 100% refundable, no questions asked, if cancelling at least two months before your arrival date!
HOW DO YOUR WEEKS RUN?
During the high season (Memorial Day through Labor Day), we rent a six-night minimum; check-in is on Saturday at noon and check-out is Friday at noon. There is a three-night minimum in the spring and fall. (We do not rent during the winter months.) Check-out times are strictly enforced ($50 per HALF HOUR late check-out fee) to allow time for housekeeping, mowing, and any repairs.
All reservations are first-come, first-served. Photo ID and signed lease agreement required. Final payments must be made two months before arrival date (or in full if closer than two months).
IS SMOKING ALLOWED? Due to asthma and allergies, smoking is only allowed outside. No smoking inside.
ARE PETS ALLOWED? I am sorry but we DO NOT allow pets because of asthma and allergies. Please be considerate and don't ask us to make exceptions because we will not. Emails asking about bringing pets will not be answered.
WHAT ARE THE CHECK-IN DAYS AND TIMES?
The stay is six nights and check-in is Saturday at noon and check-out is the following Friday at noon.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER COSTS BESIDES THE RENTAL FEE AND DEPOSIT?
No, there are no hidden charges. All taxes and housekeeping fees are included. A tip for the housekeeper is standard. The only fee that might be incurred is if renters check out late or if items are damaged outside of normal wear and tear, but as long as everyone is considerate and check-out time is adhered to then everything will be fine.
IS THE HOUSE PRIVATE?
Yes, the house is very private. The lake only has 8 houses on it, and we are the very last house at the end with a row of large trees between us and the house next door. Click on the Video tab on the home page to see how quiet and private this property is. (Warning: You'll fall in love with it!...)
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN STAY AT THE HOUSE?
This house has a capacity for up to a maximum of seven people, although we do have two cots if you have little ones...
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
If you cancel up to two months before your arrival date, you will receive a 100% refund. If you cancel two months or less before your arrival date, the deposit will be returned and the rental fee will be forfeited.
CAN WE SWIM IN THE LAKE?
Yes! It's very clean. Bring your snorkel equipment! We have a dock, a canoe, a 'pedal' boat, a row boat, kayak, and life jackets for adults and children (50-90 lbs.) and one life jacket for an infant. HOWEVER, please note that if the weather is extremely hot, algae will grow near our dock! We have a rake that can be used if this happens. It has only happened once, in the summer of 2013, and our caretaker took care of it as soon as we were made aware of the situation!
HOW CLOSE IS THE WATER?
It is down the hill, which is good if you have small children because they can't wander right out the door and into the water. (Please note: the deck at the house has locking gates to help keep smaller children safe. For example, a child in a walker.)
HOW DEEP IS THE WATER?
The water is 95' deep at its deepest. The water drops off at our property line but there is a small spot (about 10' x 10' only) at the other end of the lake for wading if you have small children.
CAN WE FISH IN THE LAKE?
You may bring your own equipment and fish in the lake, or feel free to use any poles, etc., that have been left at the house!
IS THERE A TELEPHONE?
Yes, there are five telephones in the house (one in each bedroom, one in the living room, and one in the kitchen) with UNLIMITED FREE CALLING WITHIN THE DOMESTIC U.S.
IS THERE A TV?
While there is a 26' flat screen TV for DVD viewing ONLY, there is NO cable or TV service per se. Get back to the basics and unwind . . . throw darts, play poker and board games, have drinks with friends, listen to music, canoe, fish, lay out under the sun, or roast marshmallows around a crackling fire underneath a starry sky.
IS THERE A DISHWASHER, WASHER, DRYER?
There is a washer and a dryer on the main floor. There is no dishwasher.
HOW CLOSE ARE GROCERY STORES AND RESTAURANTS?
The closest town is about five miles away; there are several little towns in both New York and in around-the-corner Vermont. The house is in-between Granville, NY and Whitehall, NY.
HOW FAR IS IT FROM NEW YORK CITY?
It is a little over four hours by car, depending on the traffic, of course.
CAN WE VISIT MANHATTAN FROM HERE?
You can take the train from Whitehall (seven miles from the house) directly to Penn (Pennsylvania) Station in Manhattan. Because of the train schedule, AN OVERNIGHT STAY IN MANHATTAN WOULD BE REQUIRED. Please check the Amtrak train schedule for times.
Usually the train leaves Whitehall once a day around 3PM and returns from Manhattan the next morning. The train leaves Manhattan around 8AM.
IS THERE INTERNET AT THE HOUSE?
There is no Internet at the house. We are in the mountains and Internet is unavailable.

Centrally located, the house is only 30 miles away from Lake George village and Six Flags, as well as Fort Ticonderoga (seasonal). The hot air balloon festival is 20 minutes away in Queensbury, NY in September; outlet shopping in Manchester, VT, and skiing in Killington and Okemo (skiing) just 35 miles away.
About the owner: It is located on the border of Vermont and New York, is the last house on the lake with a large row of trees between us and the next neighbor, and is very private! Beautiful! Peaceful! Perfect!
Why the Owner Chose Other Lake George Properties:
It is turn-key, peaceful, and beautiful, with private location on the lake, and the closeness to Lake George is appealing with the tourist attractions and Six Flags, and is only 35 miles from Okemo and Killington for wintertime skiing.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet, plus a beautiful view. We are the last house on the lake so it is very private. To see a panoramic view, copy and paste the links below into your browser. Hold your mouse down and move to see the beautiful view of the lake!
