About Michael Gramegna

I am a 38 year old dreamer, family man, and a father of 6 children, 5 sons and 1 wonderful little girl. My father the late great John Gramegna built the carriage house on this property for my family and I to spend time in the wonderful Lake George area. Since his passing I have been working on his family legacy; to make life for others as wonderful as we can, in the form of a warm and comfortable place to stay, a caring person to greet you , take care of all your needs, making your stay with us an amazing experience that we will both remember for years to come.

Something for Everyone at Somewhere in Time

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 11 ranged in age from 2 to 87, and came from Clinton, NY, Long Island, Chapel Hill, NC, Glendale, CA, and the Philippines. This house was huge and had so many features that accommodated everyone. The downstairs had multiple sitting rooms with an open layout, a large diningroom and kitchen. The kitchen was very well equipped. My mom used one of the sofa beds on the first floor. The 6 bedrooms were also very roomy, and the upstairs was air conditioned (although the rest of the house tended to stay cool without AC). The Victorian decor throughout the house was also very cool and interesting. The property featured a kids' playground, outdoor enclosed porch, a huge gazebo for large gatherings such as weddings, and a swimming pool (very popular with the five children under the age of 8). We used the first floor of the gazebo for some meals, as we had beautiful weather. We also took advantage of the lake access, which was across and down the street, and rented a power boat from a nearby marina. A shoutout to the housekeepers, Nora and Corolla, for checking in with us and giving us good suggestions. A few things to be aware of are: the house is located on a busy-ish road, so you do hear road noise from the porches near the front of the house (but not from inside); cell phone reception was iffy, but there is a landline available in the house; there is another rental on the property - this was not an issue for us as it was unoccupied during our stay. Our family had a fantastic time and I recommend this house to groups who are looking for a large property that is out if the ordinary.

Great for big family or group

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Somewhere in Time and I miss it already. When we drove up, could not believe how big the house was. We had 11 people in our group, 8 adults and 3 kids. The rooms were all nicely decorated and felt like we were back in time with modern amenities. House was very clean. The kids loved the pool table and it kept them occupied along with numerous games. The ground were very beautiful and interesting. Playground was used every day! There is a pool, it is small but enough to cool off in! We cooked most nights and found it to be well equipped except for one thing, not enough forks. We were able to all eat together in the dinning room. Spent many nights on front porch. Had a fire and did s'mores. Dock is across the street and down steep hill. We rented a boat at Chic's Marina in Bolton, highly recommend them, GREAT service. We just docked the boat there and drove there. Much easier to bring all of the boat gear and coolers in the car than down the hill! Location was great, short drive to Village and Bolton. Nora, the housekeeper, was very friendly and helpful. Responded very quickly to any questions. Would definitely recommend!!

BEST HOUSE EVER

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely incredible. IT was even nicer than any of the pictures. The owners were all so nice and accommodating. The house was in top tier shape. The fireplaces were gorgeous. The bedrooms were perfect. I would i highly recommend this house to anyone. The outside area looked even more incredible and i will have to rent this house in the summer to be able to experience it. If you are on the fence about ever renting this house, just go for it! You will not be upset. It was such a great experience and i cannot wait to go back

Wedding weekend dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Somewhere in Time for our October wedding. It was the only property we looked at, as we instantly fell in love. The houses are not only beautiful, but each room is created with so much care and detail. Our wedding party accompanied us in the house, and it was such a great way to spend the weekend with everyone snuggled by the fireplaces. The grounds alone were a unique way to have a smaller wedding, and our wedding was everything we hoped for and more. The owner of the house, John Gramenga could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The manager of the property happily answered all of my annoying last minute wedding worries, and provided great suggestions along the way.

I truly think this is the best way to stay and enjoy the Adirondack area with family and friends. After having our dream wedding here, our family and friends are already talking about coming back! We were all so sad to leave, but we have created wonderful memories here that will last a lifetime.

Skiing:

Lake George, New York is in a great location near several wonderful ski resorts. Between winter’s often abundant snowfall averages, and excellent ski-making abilities, most ski centers are able to provide skiing from late November through mid-April!

Here’s a quick rundown of nearby places where you can hit the slopes!

West Mountain Ski Resort:

West Mountain is a short drive south of Lake George and offers both day and nighttime skiing as well as a snow tubing park that is a wonderful outing for families, non-skiers and skiers alike!

Gore Mountain:

Gore Mountain is an easy drive north from Lake George to North Creek, a quaint Adirondack community that's been welcoming skiers since the early 1950s. Gore features 75 Alpine trails as well as 9 Nordic and Snowshoe trails spread over 347 skiable acres, and ranging from beginner to expert.

In addition to Gore's extensive snowmaking capabilities, snowfall averages 150 inches or more a year. Gore recently expanded to the North Creek Ski Bowl where you can enjoy tubing and family-friendly day and twilight skiing and snowboarding.

Bromley:

Farther away, but a doable day trip to Vermont, is Bromley – a family-friendly mountain with an enjoyable southern exposure. There are 44 trails over varied terrain, ranging from beginner to expert, as well as lots of activities for the kids. You can reach Bromley via Route 149 from Lake George, through Granville and to Manchester. Bromley is 7 miles outside of Manchester, VT.

Killington:

Also in Vermont, and about the same distance as Bromley, is Killington. This large ski resort features 200 day trails, including snow tubing, alpine and snowshoe trails.
