About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Adirondack home located directly on the southern end of Sacandaga Lake in Mayfield. The property looks out to Scout Island, with 100' of lakefront property and a huge level yard. Snowmobilers can drive right from the lake to the front door of our house with no problem. We have 1-queen bed, 1 full bed, 1 bunk bed and 2 twin beds, sleeping for 8. Cozy private Adirondack home. Walking into this comfortable home immediately gives you a feeling of relaxation. The living room/kitchen area is open and inviting. The loft has new carpeting with extra padding for comfort and noise reduction. The master bedroom is located in the downstairs offering privacy and quiet from the rest of the guests. There is an enclosed front porch with a full size sofa bed. This house provides the perfect atmosphere for relaxing after a busy day, and the stars are so bright at night, no nearby city lights to interfere with their brilliant night display. Enjoy swimming, boating & tubing. Enter to win the ice fishing competition or join the local snowmobile club. Restaurants are open year round with boating and snowmobile access. Cross country or downhill skiing and tubing are nearby. We have a large private yard with plenty of room for activities.

Why The Owner chose Gloversville

We purchased this property in 2009 and have renovated the interior and exterior of the house. We love the lake and have enjoyed all the room we have to play and put all of our 'toys'.

What makes this house unique

This property has enabled us to have quality family time together. We do have wireless internet but not cable or a phone. We do have a tv with a vcr and dvd player for the rainy days. And we do have cell service at this location. We primarily spend the days in the water boating, swimming, playing games and eating. And the nights we play games as a family and just enjoy being together without the pressure of always having to be someplace. We can just relax.

Waterfront on the Great Sacandaga Lake
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Lovely spot right on the lake, peaceful surroundings, comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

The lake view is stunning, we saw sunrises and sunsets that were beautiful. We brought a boat, launched it down the street from the property and we were able to keep it tied to the dock on the property for the entire week, allowing us to use it everyday! The cottage is air conditioned (we were in the 90's all week), comfortable and very clean. Karen was great, she answered all questions we had. We were looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation and that is exactly what we experienced. We would definitely stay here again.

Ballston Lake

Property was in a great spot, boat access, nice swimming area, great yard space.

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this adorable home. Everything was clean and tidy. The kids had a great time playing games on the large lawn. We had a fun time kayaking and swimming in the lake. I would definitely recommend this property for a relaxing week!!

Only down side, it was olympic week and there is no local TV coverage, we had to rely on internet for that. If it had been any other week- the lack of TV would not have mattered.

The house and lake are very nice, just as described. Karen was very easy to work with and very helpful in making our vacation pleasant. The kayaks provided were very nice. We used them quite a bit, but the lake is so big you really need a motor boat to explore it. The water quality was good for swimming but the bottom was silty which bothered us getting into the water. All and all I would recommend our stay.
