About the Property

Totally private, 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, pool table, waterfront, dock, swim.

One nice big house, on one lakeside acre, for one group at a time. A 20-year history of good times. Spacious, well-kept property on the west shore of Lake George. Rustic enough to feel authentic; ample conveniences for your comfort and ease of living. OPEN ALL YEAR. HIGH-SPEED INTERNET. GENERATOR ON SITE. POOL TABLE. Pet-friendly September to June. Off-season rates proportionate to groups of 4 to 10.

In the summer we use flat rates of $2,600 - $5,400 for up to ten people, At all other times of the year, however, our rates are determined not only by the length of stay but by the number of people in your party. Some of the holidays are flat rate, some have a minimum 8-person rate. The rate chart here on HomeAway doesn't allow for us to show all those rates. For an accurate quote, then, please contact us directly (see URL information at the bottom of the Links and Video section). We do respond promptly!

Briefly, the house has five bedrooms, including a master bedroom to die for, and four full baths. For everyone's comfort, it offers great flexibility in sleeping. There's a large living area for getting together; distant sleeping for getting away. :) The hardwood floors and knotty-pine walls are just what you thought of as an Adirondack camp. The kitchen? Well, my stepson the chef finds it remarkable well equipped. We provide reliable central heat and air conditioning, and to make sure you are cool even in the hottest and most humid weather, some window air conditioners as well.

The house also has a pool table in a room with a huge window looking out on the natural setting. There are also a two-car garage, a high-ceilinged playhouse, many natural features of native trees and exposed bedrock. (Bedrock forms the floor of the basement, in fact). Then there are the boathouse with dock, its roof a deck looking out over a truly spectacular lake and mountain scene, campfire. And you can have a campfire there at the waterfront.

It's ten minutes to Lake George Village; even less to Bolton Landing.

When you rent this property, please understand that you will have it entirely to yourselves. The house is not a part of an association. No one else will be using the house or driveway or waterfront or boat house or docks, including the owner.

Constructed in stages as the family's needs grew, Lake House contains many levels of living area and, with all its nooks and crannies, provides an unusual degree of privacy for its residents. Rooms are large, their walls paneled with knotty pine, and their floors made of oak, except for one room whose floors are pine. Ceilings are high and decorations sparse, lending an atmosphere of space and relaxation.
The main room is a large living and dining area with the kitchen at one end. It contains a large gas-fired woodstove (for ambiance primarily--the oil furnace provides central heat), one of three TVs (with cable), CD and DVD players, and radio (receiving NPR at 89.5). The dining table seats twelve comfortably. The kitchen, with its generous supply of cooking and serving equipment, is favored by the best of cooks.
This room opens out onto a large screened porch furnished with a sofa and a round glass table with chairs.

An attractive series of gently sloping steps leads you across the bedrock and down to the lake.

The double-level boat house with crib dock provides covered docking space for a boat up to 23 feet in length. No charge is made for use of the dock. A collection of life jackets in many sizes is available for the guests' use. Boat rental is available in the area. With the owner's permission you will be welcome to use our personal rowboat kept at the waterfront.
At the shallowest place, the water depth beside the boat house is about one foot, appropriate for enjoyment by very young children accompanied by an adult. The water adjacent to the pier is 8 feet deep and safe for diving. A ladder attached to the pier makes climbing back onto the pier convenient and safe. The water temperature in the lake seldom exceeds 76 degrees and is always clear and refreshing.

The grounds around the house contain a variety of land uses: small wooded areas, a small brook, grassy lawns, small flower gardens, a small wetland area, and an outcropping of bedrock. Many species of trees, including white pine, Norway spruce, blue spruce, hemlock, cedar, crab apple, oak, maple, birch, and aspen provide shade, a high degree of privacy, and natural beauty to the grounds.
For outdoor cooking, a modern Weber gas grill is provided, along with the propane needed and a spare tank in case the first ones runs out.

The two-bay garage is available for parking vehicles or boat trailers, or for storing bicycles or other sports equipment.

A full-size playhouse with a high ceiling and containing a blackboard, a doll crib, a tiny washing machine, and an assortment of other toys is available for the use of the children. Also available for the children are a swing set, a sandbox, and a tiny picnic table.

Additional information about rental rates


  • Pet Fee $95
  • For only a weekend $50


Because our off-season rates are set according to number of people in the party and length of stay and this site doesn't allow for all that information, we ask that you e-mail or call us directly for an accurate quote, please! For 4 people to stay three nights midweek, for instance, the rent is $510; for 10 people for a weekend, $1,150--but Winter-spring rates shown above are for groups of 4 and 6.

Note also that Presidents Weekend and Presidents Week have holiday rates of $1,300 for the three-night weekend or the four-nights midweek.

Sales tax (7 percent) is charged for rentals of less than four nights. A do ask a refundable security deposit of $100 to $300 depending on number in the party and length of stay. That will not show in your rental rate on this site.

Also, please remember that we are open every day all year. Every rental period can't be posted in this limited format. A very complete and attractive primary ad is also available for your convenience. though I cannot give you its URL here on HomeAway.

Our beautiful lake, called the Queen of American Lakes, naturally, is what most people come to the region to enjoy. One of the cleanest lakes in the world, it also is surrounded by forested mountains and contains 172 beautiful little islands scattered over its 32-mile length, so its landscapes are equal in quality to its water.

The swimming, boating, and fishing are fine. The region offers many other attractions, such as a Six Flags amusement park, horseback riding, hiking, the Saratoga racetrack in August, the music and ballet at SPAC, shopping at the outlets, and numerous festivals and special events.

Winter offers skiing and boarding at two ski slopes nearby, the Winter Carnival in February, ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing, plus the beauty of the snowscapes to enjoy.

Experience the thrill of walking on the ground where significant battles of the French and Indian and the Revolutionary Wars took place, where our nation's history began.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1959

About the owner: As my year-round occupation is managing my two rental houses, I would call myself an innkeeper. It's a pleasure for me to live just 2 miles from the houses and can take good care of the property and of my guests' needs during their stay. I treasure and do what I can to protect this treasure of our lake and woodlands and enjoy classical music and good movies and theater. Out of compassion for animals and to benefit the earth, I do my best to live a vegan life. My son, a stay-at-home dad, and his wife and young daughter live in Maine. My daughter's hobby is fostering stray dogs to make them adoptable. She lives in Herndon, VA.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Purchased in 1959 as a lakeside fishing shack, the house has been enlarged in stages into a well-integrated five-bedroom, four-bath home that everyone finds beautiful, wonderfully private, and just fun to live in. The great kitchen and dining table, the four bathrooms, the pool table, the natural surroundings, the immaculate condition you will find it in, not to mention the waterfront with its view of the lake and mountains that will take your breath away, boat docking, campfire, and great swimming, all create a place you will feel at home and happy with family and friends, and your well-behaved canine family member, too.
