About Bob Alexander

Professional working couple in the financial services and software industries with two college age children. Primary home is outside of Saratoga Springs. Bob, who recently retired, has been an Adirondack enthusiast for 61 years.

Bob Alexander purchased this house in 2013

Why Bob Alexander chose Great Sacandaga Lake

The couple truly loves the area and own two houses adjacent to the Foxrun property. Their 220 acre estate was accumulated over the past 15 years with the first home purchased 30 years ago. The 220 acres are pristine and contain wildlife diversity: fox, deer, racoons, wild turkey, pheasant, bald and golden eagles, bear, and other species. No hunting is permitted and signs are posted throughout the property.

What makes this house unique

Whether you want to kick back and do nothing, or you are a busy tourist, you can enjoy both in the Great Sacandaga Lake area and never sacrifice privacy or pleasure.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at fox run 7/5 to 7/ was wonderful. Booking a home online can be a little uncertain, but our expectations were fully met. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the house, the playroom...and great deck and fire pit. My 3 year old grandson had a "ball" with the outdoor play gym. We went swimming, white water rafting. Pontoon boating and enjoyed the attractions in Lake George village. Bob and Ann were wonderful hosts and made sure we were well informed and had what we needed.

Great house for large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house has 3 for one family, bottom for another with Grandma in middle.....all had their private space, with plenty of open area for all. We enjoyed hiking up the mountain from right outside the back door. The view at the top was spectacular! Even the 2 yr. old made the trek. Campfires, fishing, we rented a boat and found a beach to anchor in. Drove to Saratoga State Park 1 day...highly recommend that...all in all, it was exactly what we were looking for....a week in the mountains enjoying everything it had to offer...

Not a "lake house"

  • 1 of 5

Disappointed. The description says "30' lake front access with 40' dock and swim float." We’ve never rented a “lake” house but we assumed the house was on the lake. The description doesn’t mention the fact that the “lake front access” is ¼ mile down the road. There’s no parking available and the only way to get there is to walk on a main road that has no shoulder. So we had to walk back and forth with a bunch of little kids carrying all of our stuff (because there was no parking). The house was nice, the description was deceiving, and wasn’t what we were expecting at all. Bob – you need to update the description so people know what they’re getting.

Beautiful Home for a great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a vacation for my family who were born and raised in upstate NY and we all now have lived in FL for the past 13 yrs. Since living in FL we have accumulated Spouses and Grandchildren whom have never experienced the Great Adirondacks. We had 11 adults and 4 children and this home was perfect for us with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, a large kitchen with everything you could ever need, a beautiful living an dining room area and a spacious game room. We all were very comfortable. With only 2 TV's in the house we thought that would be an issue but before we new it no one even missed the TV's. Kids swam and played outdoors it was great family time. It was nice to get away from the everyday grind. The outside fire pit area was perfect for roasting marshmallows, making smors, playing corn hole and overall fun. The owners of this beautiful home were more than accommodating sometimes a little more accommodating than we wanted but it was their home so they needed to check on us often. We hope that they were as happy with us as we were with them and their beautiful home. The only negative was where the lake access was its was a little further than we thought and a little sheepish and rocky for us older folks but we made due. Over all it was a wonderful vacation for our whole family. Thank you Bob & Ann. The Stamper & Murray Family's

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Fox Run was a great house for our extended family of 12. Lots of living space, bedrooms, bathrooms, everything we needed really. Great WiFi, nice hike behind the house with a beautiful view, large deck, firepit, etc. The water access was a little tricky (walk down a steep, busy road). The house could use a little updating (in particular the bed on the main floor was old and creaky!) But overall, a really great choice for large families looking to get away.

Enjoyable family trip

We found the house to be clean and larger than expected. The house was well furnished and maintained. Bob was very helpful when we had a question.

We would like to definitely stay here again.
