About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6 adults, 2 children)

Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath waterfront saltbox on a small, quiet lake in upstate NY in the town of Hampton (not on Lake George), 3 mi. from the VT border, 35 miles from Lake George village, with a screened in porch. Open floor plan, private home, available year round. Enjoy a good book on our deck while the setting sun reflects onto the water. In the fall, the foliage mirrors onto the lake; in the winter, the woodstove keeps you cozy and warms you up when you come in from skating or x/c skiing. Our leather sectional is a great place to watch a movie at the end of your day, or read a book as your kids work on a puzzle on our large coffee table. Enjoy the private lake on our canoe, kayak,paddle boat, or our newest addition, a stand-up paddleboard. It's a great family vacation, that can include your well mannered family dog, if you just can't bear to leave him behind. Our master bedroom with a plush, king-size bed and main bath area are downstairs, with two additional bedrooms and another bath upstairs, making it easy to share with another couple or family, while still having privacy. You can chill out and enjoy the peaceful setting, or when you're re-energized and ready to explore, Lake George Village is just over a half hour away, with large Riverboats to tour the lake, restaurants and shopping. Manchester, VT is a Designer Outlet mecca, or take a day trip to charming VT towns like Middlebury, Ludlow, Brattleboro, or everyone's favorite, Burlington. There's great Horseback riding and a seasonal rodeo at Pond Hill Ranch just 20 minutes away, and the home of Green Mountain College (Poultney, VT) has a rail trail for hiking, dog-walking, biking, x/c skiing or snowshoeing, just 10 minutes away. Sorry, we cannot accommodate last minute requests; two week minimum advance notice.; no prom weekends or college spring break rentals; minimum rental age: 25.

About Helen Krieger

We love our times here at the lake, but can only enjoy it occasionally. We'd love to find people that will be able to come up and enjoy this little slice of paradise, instead of having it sit empty, waiting for our next visit. We are empty nesters, until the kids and grandkids all come back to visit, so we're always on the go. When we're not working at our IT desk jobs, we love biking, boating, x/c skiing, kayaking, and just about anything outdoors. We go every other year to Europe on a bike and boat adventure; that's our favorite way to combine our love of boating and the water, along with biking.

Helen Krieger purchased this house in 2004

Why Helen Krieger chose New York

We wanted to find a lake that was peaceful and not crowded with everyone on top of each other. Compared to other properties we looked at, this one couldn't be beat.

What makes this house unique

We love that we can enjoy it year round. My husband is a swimmer, so once the water warms up, he swims from one end to the other every day we're at the lake. In the winter, our grandkids come up and tube down our hillside onto the frozen lake, and we skate, snowshoe and x/c ski. In the fall, the views of the foliage are great, as well as the hiking at Haystack Mountain just 25 minutes away.

An Awesome Time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been renting through VRBO for a long time and we have stayed in multiple lake houses in the Finger Lakes and ADX, this spot is by far our favorite. The pond is clean and the water front is perfect for relaxing and swimming (for both our dog and toddler). The house is clean and comfortable and well organized. We really loved their screened in porch as well. There is a bunch of stuff to do in the area and we only left one out of the 5 days because it was just so relaxing and quiet. This is going to be our first return spot for sure. Any downside to it, they are very upfront about it in the literature and they are completely manageable.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely vacation home! My family and I had a wonderful time in the Krieger's lake house. perfect house for a family of 5 and Helen left plenty of info about surrounding restaurants and attractions. Wings at AJ's are a definite if you plan on visiting ;) It was so nice to come back to this peaceful hideaway after the busy days in Lake George village and six flags. We would definitely stay here again if we decide to visit the Lake George area again.

Great time on Melvin Pond

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the lake house with another family. There were 4 adults and 3 children and the sleeping arrangements were perfect. The pond was great and we took advantage of the kayaks, paddle boat and paddle board. I loved having my morning coffee on the screened porch watching the Blue Jay's and humming birds. We did not have to use the wood stove but enjoyed a fire in the fire pit almost every night. The Krieger's provide a lot of information on check in, check out, house rules and area dining, shopping and attractions.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

The Lake House and lake were absolutely amazing. They were exactly what the owners said and showed in their pictures. The house was spotless and the lawn/flowers were beautifully groomed. We went there to relax and spent a lot of time just sitting on the back deck reading and looking at the lake. It was very quiet at night and we actually slept in most mornings. The restaurants they recommended had great food. We spent a day at Lake George but couldn't wait to get back to the house to relax. Can't wait to spend more time there.
