Americade and Fireman's Convention take note!!! It's a little slice of heaven nestled on the banks of the Hudson River in the Adirondack Region of Upstate New York. With easy access to the Adirondack Northway, it is conveniently located one exit from Lake George and is a short 20 minute drive to Saratoga and it's 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 its natural habitat unspoiled by intruders and protected forever by
the Adirondack Trust. It is truly a private, enchanting environment and play land for a family vacation with something to do for everyone and every interest.
We have one paddle boat, three rowboats, 5 new kayaks, and one canoe available for rent at $30 each per day or $100 each weekly. Electric motors can be rented for an additional $50 per week. The river is not rough at all and the cabin is situated on a private cove which opens to a large lake-like area (see photos). It is clean and abounds with fish if you like to fish. We have hiking trails, bike trails, swimming, and virtually every kind of outdoor activity you might like within 5-10 minutes.

Charming Waterfront Escape
I just had a lovely 4 day stay at David's cottage. Since I was traveling with pets, I had a few questions about the general property/area, David was always quick to respond which really put my mind at ease. The cottage is charming and has beautiful quiet setting on the river. The overall feeling of the property really brought back memories of my childhood (not too long ago) when happiness was achieved by simply being in a beautiful spot surrounded by friends. The cottage is in a super convenient location. A quick trip on the Northway will bring you right to Lake George and Saratoga in the other direction. David was a pleasure to deal with and I hope to be back to this little waterfront escape one day soon!
Beautiful, relaxing place. Clean, great view, needed nothing, comfortable.
This place was wonderful. We will definitely return.
Amazing Family Getaway
This home offers the perfect combination of peaceful riverfront living and some more modern amenities. My two young boys loved wandering in the yard and taking the boat out on the water. Close to everything but still feels like a mountain retreat. It was the perfect size for our family of four and our retriever. We will definitely be back year after year and are sure to make memories for a lifetime. Thank you, David!
Great hideaway right on water. Hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, and Travers Stakes. Close to everything, but nestled like you are near nothing. We enjoyed immensely. Dave was great source of info, and incredibly accommodating. Didn't really want to write such a review, as we don't want such a perfect place to be rented next year, when we will return.....a nice cottage next door can also be rented.....Dave, we may try to rent both next year with a larger group.....as now our friends want to partake in the true Adirondack experience!
This is a great place right on the river . It is beautiful and quiet, yet so close to everything(attractions, activities, restaurants). This cottage was clean and provided everything you need to have a comfortable stay, plus provides activities that you can enjoy on the river. We loved it, we only had a few days but hope to go back next year for a week. The owner David was super nice, he help us with any needs that we had. Thanks David. We would recommend this cottage to all are family and friends
Awesome, wonderful place to get away from it all!
I stayed at this quaint cottage for a week and loved it here so much I just HAD to stay there for my second vacation about a week and a half later. Everything is as advertised and then some :-) and David took care of everything I needed to have an awesome vacation! As other reviewers before me have put it, David is a great person, extremely nice and helpful in every way and I could not say enough good things about him.
The view is awesome and learning to kayak was really fun, along with nighttime campfires under the stars and an abundance of wildlife and so much more things to do. It was extremely peaceful and quiet and I plan to come up here next year for another awesome experience! The cottage had everything I needed, was clean and well kept, and did not disappoint in the least. Nothing beats waking up and looking out the window at a calm lake in the morning with mountains and forest as the background.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get away from it all you will not regret it. Thank you David!
