infamous race track. With nearly six acres of private woodlands,

babbling brooks and exquisite views of the mountains, this unique

setting is truly a special hide-a-way that will enchant and relax all

visitors. The bank of the river is just a few short steps from the

porch and beckons to be joined by boat, canoe, kayak, or a daring

dive into the crystal clean water. Wildlife of all species abounds in

and every interest.

The owner was fantastic to work with. The property is as described and served well as a vacation home away from home. Owner was happy to share recreational Lake equipment. I highly recommend renting the kayaks and using the paddle boat to explore the Riverside! Beautiful property!

Quiet, comfortable and relaxing

We've rented this cottage twice and plan on renting it in the future. We love the lake, the seclusion and the hiking trails within walking distance of the cottage.

Amazing getaway with $1 million views

  • 5 of 5

The view from the camp is absolutely stunning. You feel as though you are on a secluded lake, but also have every amenity close by. You can shop during the day and sit around a fire fishing for bullhead at night. The owner, Dave, is extremely helpful and accommodating. We look forward to our next visit!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, I can't say enough positive things about David, the owner. He was so helpful and nice from time of booking until we left. He even let us stay the extra day we were supposed to check out since no one was arriving immediately. There was a minor accident of a window breaking and I felt so horrible but David was completely understanding about it and wanted us to just enjoy the weekend. Now onto the house. It was super cute and in an ideal location. As everyone else has stated, far enough to be relaxed and secluded but close enough to Lake George with all the action. We were actually glad we stayed here and not so close to Lake George. Only a 15 min drive but must have a car. We arrived at the house at night so couldn't see the surroundings very well, but were awaken to the most beautiful view of the lake and trees. Literally steps from the back patio. One tip: bring beach towels - there are shower towels provided and David brought us extra for swimming upon request, but better off just bringing. Also, try the local farm stand on the way to the highway. Best strawberries!

Thank you David for being so accommodating!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd summer vacation staying at this quaint cottage. When I go on vacation I want to be out of the fray- but still close enough to go to the attractions. For me- the best part of my vacation is my time at this cottage. Sitting outside with my coffee and having this magnificent view of the mountains and the Hudson River. David, the owner, is super accommodating. Cottage is always clean. Love that it is minutes away from the northway and can get to Lake George, Saratoga and downtown Glens Falls in 20 minutes or less. Beautiful! p.s. Thank you for the wine David- I forgot to thank you!

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented the cottage for vacation and to visit with family and friends. It was great, the days were so peaceful. The cottage screened in porch over looks the Hudson River and the mountains in the background. We absolutely loved it and have every intentions of renting it again the next time we go for a visit.
