Friends Lake Summer Vacation July 2019
This property was rented to support a summer family vacation and fishing trip. The home is very nice and very well kept and the owners are friendly and accommodating. The property is pet friendly and there is a kennel to accommodate smaller dogs. The home can comfortably sleep ten people and has a beautiful master bedroom suite. There is no central air conditioning so if the weather is hot it will get uncomfortable. The owners provide many fans. The kitchen is well equipped with appliances and is supported by a large refrigerator in the garage. The kitchen island is large and can accommodate four seated adults plus room for meal preparation and cooking. The dining room can seat four adults comfortably. The living area has enough seating for seven comfortably. The property has Direct TV satellite service. The options for television viewing is very limited and the internet service was unreliable.
The main house is not directly on Friends Lake but the owners have a nice private beach, dock and boat launch about 20 yards down the street from the house. The boat launch is nine feet four inches wide with a stone wall on each side. If your intention is to launch a boat, for example pontoon boat or bass boat, the trailer must be able to reasonably fit within the nine feet four inch launch. The dock is well kept but may is small for a boat greater than seventeen feet.
There is a large chimenea, but no outdoor fire pit, on the very large outdoor patio of this U shaped property. There are an assortment of Adirondack chairs, outdoor furniture and folding chairs that can comfortably fit all to make memories around the fire and watch the beautiful sky at night.
A great time as always!
Friendly people and good service!
Great house on a beautiful private lake
The House was perfect for us! It was comfortable and provided everything needed for the 9 of us and a baby. It is a short(1 or 2 minute) walk to the lake where we were able to use and keep 3 kayaks there safely. Lake George is about 25 minutes away (try the new Bolton Landing Brewery). That’s again to the Healeys for being so accommodating!
This house and private beach on Friends Lake is fabulous!
John and Marla have a beautiful house and property that are simply terrific. The house was fully stocked with amenities and lots of nice touches. There was plenty of space inside and out to gather with our family (7 adults). The screened in porch was always cool and inviting after spending the day at our private beach. Even the dog kennel was spacious. Would love to go back again soon!
The house is just perfect !
Second year staying here , and the family loved it yet again. John and Marla are so nice . Our family loves the house and location, and already looking forward to next year.
Lovely house on a beautiful lake
We recently enjoyed a week at Friends Lake in this house. The house is wonderful, with an amazing master suite and two other spacious bedrooms. The home has a beautiful patio area and a great screened in porch. There were only four of us, but the house would be very comfortable for a larger group. It is also dog-friendly, so the pooch got a vacation, too. It was immaculate and beautifully decorated, with a nice lawn.
The lake access is a very short walk of about two minutes across the street. There's a small but pristine sandy area for sitting and enjoying the view, and entry to the water is gradual and would be good with smaller children. We brought our canoe and it was very easy to get it into the water there. The lake itself is charming. There wasn't too much water traffic, and a few days it was almost like having the lake to ourselves. We were lucky to have ideal weather. We had never been to Friends Lake and it was much less congested and commercial than several of the other nearby lakes.
We had a couple of nice dinners at good restaurants in Chestertown, which is a very short drive away and enjoyed a a musical act at the Carol Theatre. We also spent a day white water rafting with the Square Eddy company,, which is highly recommended.
The Healys were great hosts and thoughtful in showing us the house and providing welcoming touches. We would love to visit again! My only real complaint is that the week went by too fast.
