About: (Beth) I absolutely love Lake Luzerne! I have been coming here for vacations for over 50 years, spending my whole summers here as a child. The surrounding area is beautiful, the air and water just seem so much crisper and cleaner here. The lake is wonderful to spend time laying at the beach and swimming; going fishing, canoeing and kayaking; and to take an evening stroll around it after dinner. The town is lovely - there's a small market, drug store, post office, bank, local artist shop, antique store, a restaurant, four churches, and boasts 'the narrowest part of the Hudson River'. And there's almost every activity available in the larger surrounding area, just to name a few - Saratoga Race Course (one of my favorite), hiking, tubing/white water rafting, rodeo, outlet shopping, history, strolling the streets of Lake George and steamboat trips up the river. So when it's time for retirement we know we're living here in our 'Whispering Pines Cottage'! In the mean time we'd like to share this wonderful place with friends, family and new-comers.
Why Lake Luzerne: We purchased our cottage in Lake Luzerne because it was one of my favorite places in the world to visit, and I've traveled extensively throughout the US, Caribbean and Europe. It holds many, many memories from spending my childhood summers here and bringing my own children here to enjoy this wonderful lake/mountain/small town experience. I learned how to catch, clean & cook fish; row a boat; skeet & trap shoot; drive a car and a snow mobile; grow garden vegetables and freeze them; make donuts from scratch and pick wild berries to make pies. But most importantly spending time with great family friends (now four generations) and making 50+ years of memories here!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Private community with small private beach shared with 14 other households.
