  • privacy, breathtaking views, modern old world charm

    "My wife, daughter and I stayed last July for a week. It was exactly what needed and more than we expected. We were met by the owner and his wife and they graciously toured us around the house, boathouse and grounds. It was beautiful and clean. The architecture of this turn of the century building is fabulous. Inside we found original quarter sawn oak floors, paneling everywhere and breathtaking views out of every window. The bedrooms were nicely furnished with new sheets and quilts on the beds. My wife absolutely loved the kitchen. Totally renovated with new appliances, counters, cabinets, pots pans etc. everything you need to cook whatever your heart or stomach desired. Right off the kitchen, through the dining room (great view) and out on the east facing porch, That’s where we ate breakfast. Beautiful. The porch on the other side of the house, which is probably 100' long, faces west and what better place to recline outside in the evening. Our most favorite place to enjoy the view is from the small deck perched on the roof. From there you can see the lake in all directions for miles, sunrise or sunset, it cannot be beat!! Every night we went to sleep by the call of loons and the gentle lapping sounds of the waves on the rocks, the cool northern nights, it was so restful. During the day we went tubing, the lake was so quite we could travel in a straight line for a mile without turning to avoid another boat. There aren't many places you can do that! The fishing was great!, the smallmouth bass fishing was something you read about, two to four pound fish were plentiful. My daughter and I also had fun catching pan fish right off the newly rebuilt boathouse dock. Of course, there’s always swimming, there is a swimming area with a deck right by the house. The water is crystal clear and refreshing. Or, you can always sit and just relax, we did that too. If you forgot something or run out of food, Ticonderoga is just twenty minutes away where you can shop, or visit the fort if you are a history buff. We only went out once the entire week we loved it so much. My wife and I have only one regret, we wished we had been able to share such a beautiful place and a wonderful time with our family and friends. We hope to return again. It was fantastic!!!"

  • Relaxing, Inviting Vacation Location

    "My family and I spent 2 weeks last summer enjoying this vacation home and all it has to offer as well as the benefit of the location to town. 3 bedrooms, which offered my son and daughter their own space, and a great open floor plan on the first level which enabled us to host a mini family reunion. Clean, spacious home with well maintained property. Outdoor space allowed for bbq and relaxing in the sunshine. Quiet neighborhood that was walking distance to town beach. We were able to walk into town for dinner, groceries, or ice cream due to location which made getting around quite easy. Also accessible to ferry dock. We would highly recommend the property as a vacation spot and will be reserving our time there again this summer."

    "FANTASTIC LOCATION!!! The unit exceeded our expectations providing a fully equip kitchen, tennis courts, basketball and Bocche courts, There are quite a few children's playgrounds, a great lawn with huge beautiful fountain. Just a very comfortable place for our party of six to dine in and the sleeping arrangements for a party of 6 were great. In comparison to a hotel stay, it was also more cost effective. I would absolutely recommend this apartment for families, corporate functions, friends and the alike."

  • Simply Amazing

    "I had the pleasure of renting this house from June 2012 to Sept 2013-- and I cannot say enough great things. The view is absolutely stunning-- especially when viewed from the large deck out front while grilling. The landscaped backyard behind the house is great for kids to run around or a casual picnic under the weeping willow tree. The house itself is modern, very well maintained and the perfect size for 1-2 couples. Location-wise, you are ~1mile from the main drag in Hudson, NY-- which is a true gem. Loads of antique stores, interior design stores, art galleries and fine dining. There is an Amtrak stop in town as well, making for easy travel from NYC or Albany. And finally, the owners, Lesly and Angela, are super responsive and a pleasure to work with. You simply cannot go wrong in renting this property!"

New York Travel Tips

New York is a hub of culture, history, diversity and excitement.

New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, while the rest of the upstate region is made up of different cities, town and suburbs. Manhattan and Staten Island are islands off the state’s mainland and accessed through tunnels, bridges and ferries.

Getting around New York is a breeze with an intricate yet user-friendly public transit system as well as the famous yellow taxis. In the city centers, walking is a great way to move around while still experiencing the sights and sounds of the different areas. However, car rentals may be need for those who exploring attractions upstate in areas like the Finger Lakes.

Things to do in New York

Broadway: A trip into Manhattan isn’t complete without taking in a show on the “Great White Way.” Considered the hub of theater in the U.S., Broadway is home to some of the best musical and acting productions in the world.

Cooperstown: Baseball fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to visit Cooperstown, which is not too far from Albany. This area is recognized as the shrine of baseball, and with its small-town charm and stellar views of the countryside, it’s definitely worth the visit. It’s the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as well as the Fenimore Art Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera. After a pickup baseball game, check out the local cultural attractions for a full day of fun.

Staten Island Ferry: Traveling between Manhattan and Staten Island best done aboard the famous Staten Island ferries. With service between St. George and Whitehall Street, it not only transports people between boroughs, but also delivers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, New York Harbor, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Along your journey, you can explore the unique attractions each borough has to offer.

Ellis Island: One of the most famous historical sites associated with freedom is New York’s Ellis Island. Situated in Upper New York Bay, Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants coming to America during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The island is also home the the Statue of Liberty, which was usually the first thing immigrants saw when they came off of the boats. Ellis Island houses a museum of immigration where visitors can learn all about the island’s history and even trace their own ancestral roots.

Central Park: No trip to the Big Apple is complete without a walk through Central Park. This public space opened in 1857 and is situated in the center of this borough. The park is the perfect location for a relaxing stroll or a lovely lunchtime picnic. Enjoy a friendly game of frisbee or hop in the saddle and take a horseback ride through the North Woods - you might actually forget you are in the country's biggest metropolis! Providing stunning visuals in all four seasons, Central Park is the perfect place to experience some greenery and nature in the middle of concrete and skyscrapers.

Niagara Falls: Niagara Falls is best seen from the Maid of the Mist, a boat cruise ferrying visitors right alongside the rapids. You can also experience the falls from Prospect Park Point walkways. It’s quite a sight to witness this majestic natural attraction in person.

Jack’s Oyster House: For almost 100 years, this family-owned restaurant has been serving up hungry patrons giant porterhouse steaks and fresh seafood dishes with a French twist. With elegant decor and an interesting history, this is one eatery in Albany you can't miss.

Sardi’s: Before taking in a show, eat a Sardi’s, an eatery considered the toast of Broadway. Located in the heart of the Theater District, Sardi’s is the birthplace of the Tony Aways, and caricatures of celebrities adorn the wall.

Boasting the largest influence of Chinese heritage in the western hemisphere, this is the place to get handmade noodles and dim sum. Explore the different shops and attractions in Chinatown to really feel immersed in this culture.
