About Maria McAuliffe

Our family has owned this summer home for over 50 years--we are the third generation and we have created wonderful family memories on this property. Our family still lives in Saratoga County. We have many stories based around our kayaking, fishing, swimming, and roasting marshmallows. This is a very family oriented grove of summer homes where the atmosphere and community is serene and relaxing.

Maria McAuliffe purchased this House in 1960

Why Maria McAuliffe chose Hagaman

This property was purchased by my father after he came back from WWII. He purchased it as a summer home for his parents who loved to be near the water. It has been passed down to my generation where my children, grandchildren, friends and I enjoy it.

What makes this House unique

The full view of the lake from every part of the house makes everyone fall in love with this lake house. The private 20 by 40 ft dock on the lake allows you to relax in a quiet, peaceful and serene atmosphere. We love to sit on the dock in the morning with a cup of coffee while the sun rises. The large dock and private setting allows us to have quality family time.

                                                  Linda B.

                                                  We were expecting a nice cabin on the lake. This site is more for those who want to camp out. The cabin wasn't clean, they had portable heaters for 50 degree weather, we had no hot shower water, and the bed rooms were very small. The lake was nice though and we did go paddle boating.

                                                  Great relaxing lake house and very close to the Saratoga track

                                                  DanBuffalo, NY

                                                  This was one of the most relaxing and beautiful places I have ever been. The dock was enormous and the fishing was fantastic. We had access to multiple Canoes, Kayaks, Row Boats, ect. the camp inside was very clean and had a great hand made bar. The Saratoga track was just a couple minutes away and for the price I do not think you can find a better deal. The owners were also very nice (an older woman Maria and her duaghter Max) and allowed me to come in early and leave later than I was supposed to. I highly reccomend this unit.
