About Laura Harnden

After many years camping in the area we decided we loved the peacefulness so much that we purchased our vacation home. Knowing it brought us so much fun we decided that others could gather as we do and make some memories of their own.

Laura Harnden purchased this house in 2008

Why Laura Harnden chose Adirondack Mountains

This property was purchased with the belief that "family" would have a special place to gather, make memories and share laughter. The photos of the outside of our home leave you thinking that this home is small, but once inside it is spacious and inviting. We pride ourselves with a clean, warm well appointed home, making for memorable vacations. The back of this property overlooks a wide pond which you will see as you enjoy the new fire pit. A peaceful and serene property close enough to Lake George and all their year round attractions.

What makes this house unique

The large living room/dining area make this home perfect for groups that love to enjoy a laughter filled meal, game night or holiday. The dining table can seat 10-12 guests. The dining table over looks the comfy couch and love seat, fireplace and flat screen TV! We have even added a high chair for the toddlers in your life. The gas fired fireplace will keep you warm and cozy inside and there a fire pit overlooking the pond to enjoy nature. With Wi-Fi and cable this home has it all. This past year we added a whole house generator to guarantee an uninterrupted vacation.

Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This house was even more than our group expected! There was plenty of space and everything was provided. Some of the group went skiing at West Mtn while the rest of were able to stay back and snowshoe nearby. I will definitely be booking again in the future! We were able to celebrate the New Year in a comfortable environment where and had a blast. Highly recommend!

Fits all needs

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very sweet, with more than enough room for our party of 8 adults. We didn't spend much time inside but did make use of the outdoor space which was equipped with a large table, fire pit, tiki torches, and yard furniture to sit around the fire. As previous reviews note, the house is also stocked with pretty much everything you need kitchen-wise and there are a million towels at your disposal. The bedrooms were also all very comfortable. The single bathroom was not an issue for the most part but I'd suggest being strategic in the morning with your timing. We'd hoped the pond would be another swimming option but it wasn't, although it was very beautiful and serene as a backdrop. The location of the house is overall ideal, within walking distance from the rodeo and the nearby beach. We loved this house and immediately felt that it was ours. My only complaint is the early checkout time of 10 AM - this is the real time so be prepared. My group was unfortunately not but the cleaning crew was accommodating as we got moving.

Owner's Response: We strive to make for our homes to be as comfortable and clean as possible for all tenants. As for departure time of this home, the contracts, website and information available to the tenant in the home state that a 10am departure is required. This gives our cleaners ample time to have the home ready for the next tenants to arrive. We have had this departure time in place for several years and has worked rather well for just about all our tenants.

Property is exactly a listed.

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 adults and 1 teen in our group and the accommodations were perfect. With a little conversation between us we easily managed having just the one bathroom. The property is exactly as listed with the addition of a small room off the front entry with a cot that could be used as a bedroom. The location was perfect, just 7 miles from Lake George and Americade. The property was well stocked with kitchen cooking items and the firepit area behind the home was stocked with plenty of folding chairs and 1 large picnic tables for hanging out for a cookout. The gas grill does need new burners but with the kitchen stove that worked well we really didn't miss the use of the grill. I did have several questions about the property prior to rental & the manager was quick with responses so I could book with confidence. Thank you for a great travel experience Home Away rentals!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. We apologize for the gas grill issues. We have ordered the parts and it should be fixed by July 4th. Americade is a fun outing every June and we hope that you'll visit us again.

Everything Advertised and More!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for a weekend getaway. It fit 8 people comfortably and delivered on the amenities that were listed in the advertisement. The cabin had a wifi router, which allowed all 8 of us to connect and have access to high speed internet. There were plenty of glasses, china and cutlery to use for our meals. The property manger was great as well. We ran out of propane on the gas grill and Wendy was able to drop off a new one before our next meal. Would definitely consider renting this property again. Thank you Wendy!
