About the owner: We love our cabin but our children are grown and a job change required that we relocate out of the NY area. Mary is a college administrator and Jaime is a retired artist. We spend the early summer at the cabin. Renting for some of the season gives us a chance to share our beautiful cabin with people who love lakefront beauty and serenity. Our neighbor is the on site manager. She provides a welcome and is available as needed.
Why the Owner Chose Saratoga Springs: We bought this property when our two children were young and have wonderful memories of time spent with them, family, and friends relaxing, fishing, swimming, hiking, and just having a great time away from the distraction of our daily lives. It is located on a private lake with five other camps.
We maintain the camp in excellent condition and visitors have loved that it is fully stocked and maintenance free. Nothing to do but enjoy the setting!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: It is perfect for young children and with Great Adventure, Lake George, and the Rodeo close by, you never worry they are bored.
For the adults, Saratoga provides great restaurants and the energy of a summer resort town - and you come back to a serene setting with striking sunsets that are best enjoyed from the deck rocking chairs with a glass of wine.
In summer, the lake enjoys warm sunshine days (70-80F) and cooler evenings perfect for sleeping (60F). The night sky is amazing. The stargazing is better than a planetarium. The lake loons call in the evening and we see beaver occasionally while on the boat.
