About the Property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 5.

Feel like you are in the middle of the Adirondacks yet shopping and attractions are only minutes away. This historic stone cabin is located along a dead end road. Surrounded by mountains and water it is very private. The cabin offers wonderful lake views. There is a screened in porch overlooking the lake, a wonderful place to start your day. Then go down the stairs to your private lake front and take a swim. The lake is great for swimming, fishing and boating. While the water off the dock is shallow with a sandy bottom it gets deeper so you can jump in off the end of the dock. After a lovely day at the lake, have diner on the outdoor patio and relax in front of the campfire. What a perfect day in the Adirondacks! Want to do something else tomorrow? Just check out the local chamber of commerce web site. There are amusement parks, outlet shopping, museums, malls, restaurants, hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, etc. We are sure you will have a great time.

Glen Lake: Glen Lake is approximately 3 miles long. The cabin is located in the deeper wider sections of the lake. There are two islands, the larger one has a lighthouse and cabin. There is a restaurant on the opposite side of the lake 'The Docksider'. The fishing is wonderful. There is a wetland, swamp area at the inflow of the lake which is full of wildlife and birds. The view from the cabin is of Prospect Mountain, French Mountain and the other mountains separating Glen Lake from Lake George. The water is comfortable and great for swimming and activities. Most of the homes along the lake are year round and it tends to be very quite during the week, especially during the day. It is truly a beautiful place to be.

The cabin: The cabin was built during the 1930's. It is very lovely and surrounded by woods tucked into the side of the hill. The cabin is located on the same property as the owners home. The driveway is shared but the landscaping very nicely separates the two. You have your own private swimming area. It is wooded on either side of the swim area (no one has a beach or swim area right next to you). The view from the screened in porch is breath taking. You can see up the lake, the islands and the sunsets.

Guest comments: We have been renting the cabin for 5 years. Everyone who has stayed with us has really enjoyed the place.
'It is so relaxing' 'Beautiful location' 'Great fishing' 'Plenty of activities for everyone' 'One week is not enough' 'Nicer than we thought'

Car: Recommended

Feel like your miles away from everything in this secluded historic stone cabin but your really only minutes away from all kinds of activities. We are close to the bike path, near golf courses, close to amusement parks and mini golf, go carts and outlet shopping. To the south we are minutes from Saratoga where you can find the oldest flat track and a casino. To the north is beautiful Lake George 'the queen of lakes' and the gate way to the Adirondack park. There is so much to do a week is hardly enough time.

 

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I grew up in the area but we didn't meet until we in our 30's. He is an MD practicing ENT and allergy in Saratoga Springs. I manage the practice and run the household. We have one daughter in college and a few pets. We have always wanted to live on the water so being here is like a dream come true.

Why the Owner Chose Queensbury, NY, USA:
My husband grew up in the area and spent summers at the camp next door. We purchased the cabin shortly after we were married and spent summers there. Once our daugher was born we decided to build our year round home next door. It was important for us to maintain the natural beauty of the cabin and its surrounding. We wanted to be able to share this wonderful place with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I just love being so close to everything but when I am at the cabin I feel like I am in the middle of the Adirondacks. Sitting on the screened porch is like sittling in a tree house. The sunsets can be magnificent.
