Why Owner/Manager Glenda Duell chose Warrensburg
I actually inherited the property from my elderly father who is still living, but decided to downsize. It's a really beautiful spot.

Beautiful land and cabin, horrible experience
Prior to our arrival, I tried to contact the owner with no response.. to confirm we were checking in correctly and to find out why the lights and all of the tv's had been on when we walked in, which was a little odd. Between then and our departure, I had tried numerous times to contact the owner via email and phone without any response. The screens in the two converted garages had holes in them, letting in a ton of mosquitos, so we had guests who ended up sleeping on air mattresses (that we had thankfully brought just in case) in others rooms because they would have been eaten alive sleeping in the garages. The refrigerator did not seal correctly, there were crushed beer cans on the lawn close to the river, more than a few cups and plates in cupboard were covered in food/stains clearly unwashed, there was soap to wash dishes but no sponge which we had to purchase, the grill ignighter was broken so we had to go back out and buy matches, and there were ants and mice EVERYWHERE inside the house. At night, we had multiple mice running past our feet in the kitchen. We also woke up in the morning to mouse droppings on our nightstands in our bedrooms and throughout the entire kitchen. We loved the property, but were absolutely grossed out. If we had came for the weekend with our children, we would have immediately left. We even had wiped down the tables when we got there and the paper towels turned brown. The air conditioning worked ok in most of the rooms (not all) and the property was beautiful, but we were extremely dissapointed with not only the condition of the house, but the complete lack of concern or response from the owner. We left the house cleaner than it was when we arrived, left two soapy bowls (that were covered in dried food in cabinet when we got there) soaking in sink for them to be helpful, and even stripped the linens for the cleaning maids whom we left a cash tip for.... and did not receive our entire security deposit back. I promptly emailed the owner early this morning in regards to the matter and reasoning for not receiving the full amount back and still have not heard back. Extremely and utterly dissapointed that I had to leave this review. We absolutely will not be staying at this property, or any of the properties under this owner ever again.
I'm not quite sure what to say in terms of communications with our guests. We offer 10 properties in this area and this is what I get up every morning and take great pains to do properly. This guest doesn't say if they called the office number or my cell. Within about 2 hours of a guest's arrival I personally go to each property for a final inspection, turn many lights on and the TV. This is the first time in 10 years I've had any guest think it was odd. I thought it was part of our hospitality so that guests didn't arrive in a dark lonely looking house. I ve had positive reviews in the past that spoke about how they liked this personal touch. As far as mosquitos goes, we do have them on the river. Maintenance people have chemical foggers that are used to deter them, but some guests are not happy with the thought of chemicals being used. It's a hard balance to achieve. This year is particularly bad because of so much rain. As for mice, I'm truly sorry for that, but it simply wasn't reported to me at the time. We have had record rain this year and that does tend to drive the critters inside. We take precautions such as traps and poison in the basement where it's locked up and also I've installed the electronic devises as a deterent. I will take the dirty bowls that were found under serious consideration and discuss this with the maids. I stand by my employees for the most part as they are a great group of workers. They are human and if this was neglected the issue will be resolved. The security deposit is not received by me. VRBO places a hold on their card and it is returned with 10 to 14 days after departure providing I don't report damages. This process was followed by me in this case and I have responded timely.
This place was amazing!
We had a small, weekend gathering with a about 10 or so guys, and this house was absolutely perfect for the occasion! Starting with the outside, there is plenty of yard to play lawn games and hangout. There is also a nice fire pit (which Glenda provided a ton of firewood) down by the river. The house has a nice patio with a grill, making it perfect for a cook out.
The inside is simply beautiful. Two full bathrooms, and a ton of bedrooms. Everybody had their own bed to sleep in. We didn't spend too much time indoors because the weather was amazing, but we did take advantage of the pool and ping pong tables!
Overall, we had a great stay. Glenda and her husband were easy to get a hold of, and took care of everything for us. I would absolutely consider this house again for another weekend getaway!
Fantastic for a Family Get-Away!
The house was exactly right for our one-week, ten-person family vacation. I'd absolutely recommend it to family and friends, and depending on the size of our group next year we will absolutely consider staying here again!
- Tons to do within an hour's drive (Fort Ticonderoga, lakes/ponds/rivers galore, hiking, towns of Lake Placid/Bolton Landing/Lake George/Saratoga Springs, etc.)
- On a "perfect" river with a little "beach"; slow relatively warm water good for limited swimming / quick dunks as well as canoeing/tubing (we put in at the property and ~ 5 hours later pulled out at County Home Bridge Rd a few miles downstream)
- Huge, HUGE grassy backyard perfect for games
- Fantastic porch for outdoor meals
- Two car garage converted into two game rooms
- Two kitchens (for us that was a plus because we used both refrigerators)
- Secluded and private
- Fire pit next to the river
- Toys for toddlers (play house, kid pool, etc.)
- Responsive owners/managers
- Pet friendly
- I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff
- WiFi (which is really a good thing to have, since many of us, especially those with AT&T lacked cell service here...which I'm putting down as a PRO!!!)
- Clean and well-maintained
- Property secluded, but can still hear highway when outdoors, even later at night (note: not a big issue outdoors, and not an issue at all when inside)
- Found a few stray pieces of broken glass near fire pit
- No outdoor location to put out trash
So happy this guest took the time to explain many of the amenities at the cabin. The only concern I have and am puzzled by was how he missed the outside trash cupboard. It s a $500.00 rubbermaid double door trash closet. It sits under a shed directly outside the cabin by the parking area. It s visible the moment you pull in the parking lot and says " trash" on the door. It s periodically picked up by our maintenance crew. Actually quite humorous. If you don t see it, you just don t see it. Thanks again, for the kind review. Please do revisit. Glenda
The place is nice and was clean. Pretty secluded, we could sort of see one other house. Plenty of parking. Dog friendly, and a big yard. The yard is buggy so bring bug spray (can't really hold that against the house since one of the draws is that it's right next to the river).
Overall we had a nice time.
Thanks so much for letting us know that you enjoyed your stay. I know-those pesky insects! We have a fogger for certain times of the year for blackflies and mosquitos, but we don't like to overuse it. In fact, some guests have asked that we not chemically treat. Hard to win that battle sometimes! The wrist and leg bands for keeping them away has been recommended. I've even seen them passed out at outdoor weddings. Again, thanks so much and please revisit soon. We offer 8 other properties at vrbo. Maybe try another one. The fall is great in the Adirondacks! Glenda
