Property description

Location, Location, Location!

Riverfront and woodsy setting feels like the wilderness, but village of Warrensburg only a 2 block stroll. Pristine beauty, peace, and quiet, with all the conveniences of home.


Discounts for repeat visitors!: As a 'newby' at sharing my home, I have been extremely pleased and grateful to the families I have gotten to know (via email) through the before, during, and after rental process. As a result, I welcome them to re-visit at a discount!
I also will gladly accept their recommendations for any family or friends wanting to stay at my house, as they have proven themselves to be reliable, considerate, and extremely kind in their remarks and reactions.

Once we have traded emails and you decide you would like to vacation in my home, please call me at 813 765-6893 (preferred) or 813 996-6320 (home), to check each other out! For my peace of mind, and I assume yours, doing business by email isn't sufficient.

Owner info

About the owner: We consist of husband, wife, and two sons. Husband grew up in Albany and as a result the family were frequent visitors to the Albany area. After years of staying in family guest rooms, we decided to build a northern home for vacations, and ultimately retirement. Not only were we crazy to build long-distance from Florida, but who lives in sunny Florida and retires to the North! Of sound mind on both counts - house turned out to be a beauty & couldn't have chosen better for retirement - providing we can enjoy the beautiful seasons in NY and escape the cold on occasion.

Why the Owner Chose Warrensburg:
The Lake George area holds great memories for us and always was the place to be. We were delighted to find a stunning piece of riverside property containing a 120 year old house, which had a hidden 'for sale' sign. After much time and $ attempting to save the old house, had it bulldozed to start anew. Although the long distance building project lasted 3-4 years, the results are worth it. A pictorial history of the building experience is available for your pleasure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is convenient and PRIVATE! Convenient in location and convenient in living. The house contains everything that we or visitors might need (with the exception of personal items). If you are looking for a 4 plates, 4 forks, etc. kind of place, this is not it! We come and go regularly and leave the house as if we were returning home. So far our 'homey' method has worked, and guests have cared for and enjoyed our home like their own. Did I mention the surroundings? The beauty of nature's 4 seasons surround the house, The spacious decks and plentiful doors and windows encourage staying put and contemplating what's good about life. During most seasons of the year, being surrounded by trees gives you total privacy. Bonus! A new Price Chopper grocery store opened in 2014, and even though it is within walking distance of the house, for some!, there is no evidence that it exists at the bend in the river. Especially nice is that its open 24 hrs a day, during the summer season.
