Romantic Stay for Valentine's Day
Romantic Stay for Valentine's Day
My husband and I rented this beautiful, secluded home for Valentine's weekend. We had a wonderful time. The house was warm and cozy, and the view of the lake was breathtaking. When we arrived there were fresh flowers on the kitchen table and a heart-shaped box of chocolates waiting for us to enjoy! The owner was nothing but accommodating for anything that we needed. We are looking forward to returning in the summer for a longer stay and so that we can enjoy all of the warm weather activities that the area has to enjoy.

We stayed for a long weekend last month and had a great time. The kids enjoyed skating on Echo Lake (note: I'm not sure what an earlier review was reffering to as the lake is 35 acres in size and very private) while the girls enjoyed the town of Warrensburg and shopping in the Lake George outlets. The owner was very helpful as we needed a few things, including jump starting one of our cars on a cold morning, and I would recommend the house to friends.

The home is very conviently located just minutes to the northway and Lake George. There are plenty of stores for groceries, wine and other suplies within a short drive. Steve provided us with 2 row boats to cruise the lake and enjoy the foliage. I found a great deal of near by hiking trails on the web. The home its self has a country charm with its volted notty pine ceiling that gives it a lodgey appeal. It was much less expensive than staying at a hotel. I was very satisfied with my stay and felt that it was a great value. John from Schenectady, NY

Owner response: It was a pleasure to receive such a positive review. Experiencing the Adirondacks and its fall foliage can do nothing but amaze and delight anyone who visits here. I still find myself amazed by the beauty of the Adirondacks during any season, especially with the reflection of the mountains in the lake during the fall.To be able to sit on the back porch of the house and experience the beauty of the lake, is just beyond words. To be able to share this with other is a privilege.
Echo Lake is more like Echo Big Pond

We stayed in Aug. 2008. The house was private. I wish I could give it a good review, but there were just too many problems and when we pointed them out to the owner at the end of the vacation, he acted surprised. There was plenty of space for 10-14 of us (family members came & went), although a few had to sleep on the couches, that was fine. The bedding & beds were ok. Only 2 rolls of toilet paper (the ones on the holders) and that was not enough for all of us obviously. The air conditioning worked in only 2 of the bedrooms and when we were there, it was rainy & muggy. We went and bought a few fans. The owner lived next door but we didn't see him the whole time we were there. Behind the building next to ours, which I assume is owners garage, it looked like Sanford & Son...tons of JUNK. Not the kind of thing we wanted to look at while on vacation. The amenities were all there, except no blender. The amenities did not all work. Could not get cable tv to work in living room or downstairs bdrm. because there were no cables. The microwave did work correctly, after 5 minutes, mac & cheese should have been more than lukewarm. Echo Lake is NOT what we consider a "lake". It's more like a big pond. There is a kids camp directly across the "lake" and they can be noisy but it really didn't bother us. The "stairs" going down the small hill to the water were backwards and small. Very awkward to try to walk on. The hammock was ripped, so my husbands butt fell to the ground (pretty funny & got a good picture out of that). The small dock from was broken going out to the water. There is a floating dock, but it's hard to climb onto, at least for us weaklings. The owner let the garbage cans out front go until the day we left. Luckily we didnt have to see them because most of the time was spent in the back of the house. I realize this was the owners 1st year renting, but people had rented the house just weeks before we did and I cant imagine at least some of these issues weren't brought to his attention. Hopefully, this year, as he raised the rent for 2009, he will spend some of that money fixing some of the above problems. Additionally, this is NOT suitable for disabled persons.

Owner response: I am honestly shocked that the first review I have received is a negative one. I remember these renters and recall only a “thank you” and them telling me what a wonderful time they had. Although 2008 was my first time listing on HomeAway, it was not my first time renting this property. I have been in the business of renting for approximately 20 years. During these past 20 years I have come to the realization that you cannot please everyone – it’s just humanly impossible. I could reply with a rebuttal to every negative comment made, but 2 wrongs don’t make a right. I work very hard to make my renters’ stay a pleasant one. I am always quick to respond to any kind of problems that arise and to try to rectify them as soon as possible, as long as I am notified of the problems. The house is always stocked with everything that is supposed to be there. I own a business in town (part of which is an antique store). The “junk” in the garage are antiques to be refurbished. “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” Echo Lake is a very well-known “lake” in the area. It is evident from the pictures on my site that it is not a “pond”. I regret that these renters did not enjoy the time they spent here. This is a beautiful area to vacation at and I like to make it as positive of an experience as I can for my renters. If I had known they were having all of these problems while they were here or before they left, it would have been nice to be able to speak with them about it and rectify the situation.
