There’s a lot to love here in our completely furnished modern lake house with 2 queen beds, one in each bedroom, twin bed in the loft, a daybed on the enclosed front porch, full bed in the partially finished garage. There's a Family Room with comfortable couch and the Wii, a sitting / dining room with lake views and a slider to the deck with views of the bay/water.
Two full baths, one offers a comfortable warm soaking tub, the other a steam shower with body jets. The Living Room has a slider to the side deck with views of the lake. There’s a Family Room with surround sound for movies, a Kitchen with stainless steel appliances and Adirondack décor.
If visiting in the winter for snowmobiling, we have Adirondack trails all around us and direct access onto the lake. There's a warm cozy gas fireplace in the sitting room / dining room.
There’s a washer and dryer, Outdoor grill, dock to swim off (docking rent applied if you need dock space for a motor boat), fireplace in the yard and by the lake. 30 minutes from Saratoga Rack Track.
The spring delivers beautiful months of flora. The air is warm and the lake is ready for boat rides. In June, the lake activities begin! The July fireworks on the lake are very impressive. Lake activities are in full swing in July, August, & September. You can enjoy swimming, motor boating, kayaking, canoeing, water skiing, tubing, fishing, and sunning. Take a day trip to the Saratoga Race Track to watch the horse races or other nearby hiking trails or Adirondack lakes (Lake George. Etc…). Our lake is has a nice sandy bottom and is not crowded with commercial activity. It is very peaceful and life is good at the lake!
Reserve a Spring/Summer Sunny Lake Vacation get away, a Fall Escape or a Cozy Snowy get away now! Perfect southern adirondack lake with a nice sandy bottom! This location is also perfect for leaf lovers and snowmobiling/skiing. Guests that are interested in more than one summer week are suggested to book by January. They fill up quickly and it becomes hard to get two or more weeks together if you are looking for the extended get away!
The Great Sacandaga Lake is 29 miles long with 125 miles of shoreline, located a short 45 minutes northwest of Albany on the southeastern edge of Adirondack State Park. It is a full use, clean, sandy bottom lake in a rural, unspoiled setting. The house is 25 minutes drive from the New York State Thruway/I90 exit 27, and a 25 minute drive from Saratoga. Located on the southwest part of the lake in Mayfield Bay.
If Boating, Canoeing, Kayaking, Fishing, Snowmobiling, Hiking, Biking, Skiing, Golfing, Swimming or Relaxing by an Adirondack Campfire is something you enjoy, then this is the home for you.

About Crystal or Rick
We purchased this lake home as our own summer vacation home. During the first summer here, there were some weeks we had vacations planned out of town so we decided to offer it for others to enjoy. From there, we had so many inquiries that we couldn't turn down so we decided to share it and purchase another. There is a link to view our other lake homes. We are certain that you will enjoy the home and the lake area as much as we do!
Crystal or Rick purchased this House in 2011

Beautiful home, great location!
Clean and fresh home, close to restaurants and the lake.
Clean and cozy
The temperature outside dropped to -3 during our stay but the house was plenty warm inside. Everything was clean and as pictured. Our kids enjoyed some board games and books they found at the house. Hope to be back soon
Clean and roomy, but lacking amenities.
We had a great time staying here! Photos are accurate as to what the place looks like. It was actually bigger than we were expecting. We wished that there was an outdoor light on the porch so that we could see at night. A table against the wall near the stairs in the kitchen would also be a nice addition.
The only thing we found odd (and inconvenient) was the lack of amenities in the house. The house instructions stated that there would be plastic cups and plates provided, but there weren't any. There was also only a tiny bit of laundry detergent left, and we almost ran out of toilet paper. It was just my husband and I staying there for the majority of the week, so a large group surely would have run out. The instructions did state that we are responsible for things like dish detergent and trash bags. We have stayed in a lot of VRBOs and Air BNBs and just found it odd that there weren't more household items left from other guests and things like spices, olive oil, etc. for cooking. We also wished that there would have been some lake floaties or bikes for exploring the area.
All in all, we had a great time. The place is super clean and roomy, but it would've been a nicer stay had there been more conveniences provided in the home.
Lovely home - great get-away!
The lake house was charming, comfortable, well-kept, and very spacious. Nicely furnished and appointed. Nice place to relax, indoors and out. Great yard with BBQ and fire pit. We were unable to launch kayaks from the dock, but there are many access points a short walk or drive away. Quiet town but near all conveniences, and a half hour from Saratoga.
Awesome place to call it a night!
House was very nice and clean..... Hosts were wonderful and house had a lot of what we needed. House was roasting in the evenings and Owners got an alert, called and told us how to reset breaker outside and was fixed ASAP. ( I did not call and complain they knew there was an issue and they called me) Neighbors were great as well and town was close.. Perfect place on the water to lay your head.
Beautiful and peaceful home. This property is very clean and welcoming! Sits on a quiet street and is well maintained. The family is very easy to work with.
