About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8).

'That Red House' is a recently constructed lakeside home. The house design is eclectic and unique with both modern and Adirondack decor. The Great room is open and airy with cathedral ceilings and is surrounded by numerous windows and an unobstructed view of Black Mountain to the south. Teak wood and tile floors run throughout the house.

The gourmet kitchen, fully stocked with all cooking implements, dishes, etc, is adjacent to the Great Room. Nearby is a wet bar, dining area and powder room.

There is a 15' X 20' deck adjacent to the great room for simply relaxing or enjoying a meal lakeside. As well, we have a covered Adirondack porch 7' X 16' which offers privacy and a spectacular view of the lake to the south.

The Master bedroom/bath is on the main floor with a large tile shower, washer/dryer and an over sized sliding glass door to the deck. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, both with a view of the lake, are located on the lower level as well as a large recreation area, triple bunk bed and a second full bath. A sliding glass door provides access to the lower sitting area complete with Adirondack chairs, a fire pit and a view of the lake.

We are part of an association which boasts a large deep water U-shaped dock with a slip available for a boat up to 20 feet in length. As well, we have 5 to 6 kayaks for our guests use. Swimming off the deep water dock is a breeze due to two sturdy ladders making it easy to get in and out of beautiful Lake George. Guests with small children may wish to visit the town beach. Gull Bay town beach is a five minute drive from the house and is located in Gull Bay. It is a clean and quiet sandy beach that slopes gently into the water.

About Marta Kolman

As a child, I spent my summers in a boys camp that my Father ran for many years. Although I loved the lake and all the water activities, I did not like being the only girl in the camp (besides my mother)! Since that time, it became a fantasy of mine to have my own spot on Lake George. Having this home has far exceeded my wildest dreams. I cherish every moment I have on Lake George and cannot believe my good fortune. I love being able to share my dream & joy with people who value and appreciate Lake George and the Adirondack mountains, as I do.

Marta Kolman purchased this house in 2010

Why Marta Kolman chose Lake George

As Thomas Jefferson once wrote to his daughter.., "Lake George is, without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw...," says it all!

What makes this house unique

We designed & built our home to capture the natural beauty of Lake George and the surrounding mountains whether it be from the great room or from the decks. We have focused our efforts on providing many modern amenities for our guests to make their experience that much richer and memorable.

Great house and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at The Red House to celebrate my parent's anniversary and really enjoyed our time there! The house is great for entertaining, and has everything you could need and more! The views are stunning and the access to the lake and dock is so convenient. Highly recommend this property for any getaways to Lake George!

Beautiful House, Beautiful View, Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the Red House on Lake George. The house has a very cozy feel and really exemplifies luxury living. The view of the lake has to be one of the best views on Lake George. The interior of the house is spotless. This is a great place to stay, no matter the season. Thanks so much to our wonderful host, Marta - very responsive, thoughtful, and kind.

Beautiful House, Gorgeous Views, Very Accomodating Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a great vacation at "That Red House"! The house was very clean, and extremely well stocked with all the necessities. The access to a boat dock was great and the ease of renting from the Marina across the Lake was fabulous! The views were amazing and the temperature was perfect. It was so quiet and a very relaxing place to spend a summer week! We found it a very convenient location for hiking and exploring Fort Ticonderoga, and a trip across Lake Champlain into Vermont, but a bit of a drive to explore some attractions in Adirondack Park, especially since not all the places our children wanted to visit were pet friendly and we didn't want to leave our dog unattended at the house for such a long time...which is okay, because we just went on other adventures where the pooch could tag along! The public beach was easy to drive to as well. The owner provided tons of information and was easy to communicate with during our stay. Our only advice is to pack your groceries, or stop at a grocery store along the way since the house is a good drive to any shopping. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us the summer!

I appreciate the detail in your review as it helps future guests to understand and appreciate all there is to do on and around beautiful Lake George!
