About Pete Lawson

My brothers, sister and I were born and raised here and visit with our children year round. Unfortunately, we live in Florida, Delaware, and Boston, so we do not enjoy it as much as we would like. Instead of keeping closed, we would like to share the home with other families to enjoy the area like did growing up

Pete Lawson purchased this house in 1966

What makes this house unique

Minutes from historical Ft. Ticonderoga, South Mountain directly across the street, Cooks Mountain, and a quick boat ride to Lake George Village

Great time Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at this property, and at Lake George. We (there were 13 of us ages 6 to 55, 4 separate families) had always vacationed together at Lake Bomoseen in Vt. The place we always stayed sold so we decided to try something different. It was a great decision. The house is plenty big for a lot of people. Even when we were all inside, which was very rare, we had plenty of room. The kitchen has more than ours at home. There is absolutely nothing missing. Pete is a great host. They supply towels, linens, paper products, soap and anything else from condiments to ice. It was like being at home. Walmart, rite aid and convienance gas stations are less than 4 miles away. Air conditioning in every bed room.

This is the north end of the lake (the very end) and is very quiet. We loved it. We had 2 21' boats tied to the dock, with no problems and also 2 jet skies anchored along the wall. There are some large rock ledges close to the dock and wall, and the water is kind of shallow so you needed to be careful with the boats and jet skis, but after a day or two it became second nature. We set up a couple of ez up canopies on the grass, horse shoes and spent a lot of time grilling and relaxing in the adirondak chairs pete provides. There is a full size garage which seemed to be a gathering place, just like at home, and was very convienent to store our boating and fishing supplies, and of course our coolers. There was also a full size extra refrigerator and chest freezer in the garage for us to use.

The lake at this end was very quiet which is what we like. We fished, boated, towed tubes and skiers, and jet skied all week without any issues. We found a cliff jump about a 15 minute boat ride from the house which the teenagers loved.

Resturaunts in the immediate area are not many, and close early, but was not an issue for us because we didn't plan on eating out too often. We did a lot of grilling. We took the ferry into vt. (about 10 minutes from the house) which was pretty cool. Lake george village (where the action is) was an hr. car ride from the house. Were told it was about an hr or more by boat too but too far for me with my boat. Went to the village one night, that was enough for us.

All in all this was a great place, and a great vacation. Pete is a wonderful host and we couldn't ask for more. It was like being at home. We look forward to returning again next year. Thanks Pete!

Nice quiet part of the lake.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the property with exception to the following:

1.The mattresses in all 5 bedrooms need to be replaced. Everyone woke up sore every morning. This should be be addressed. the tenant should be advised of the bedding condition upfront.

2. Housekeeping should do a better job cleaning/clearing spider webs throughout the house.

Other than that we liked the property, plenty of space outside, fire pit etc.

Quiet Lake Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 quite enjoyed our stay here. The house was plenty spacious, the proximity to the water ideal, and the adirondack chairs on the lawn overlooking the lake were one of our favorite spots! This end of the lake is definitely quieter than the southern end, which makes it a great place to swim, kayak, fish, etc. Even the youngest kids were able to fish off the dock and catch something, which was pretty exciting for them! The weather ended up pretty warm during the week we were there, so having air conditioners in the bedrooms was especially good, since you couldn't feel too much of a breeze through the house. Thankfully, there were also several fans to help move air around.

The house and kitchen are well stocked with pretty much everything you need -- paper goods, kitchen items, etc, and it's also nice that there's an extra fridge in the garage -- easy access for drinks and things while you're outside. The decor could use a bit of updating, but our biggest suggestion for improvement is that all of the double bed mattresses need be replaced. By day 2, all of the adults in our group were aching, and as much as we enjoyed our stay, we were longing to come home to sleep in more supportive beds! The property is well cared for, and the caretaker met us on our arrival to make sure everything was in order and that we had what we needed. There's plenty of lawn around the house, so if you're so inclined, make sure you bring your fun lawn games to make use of the flat lawn that you don't get at too many lake houses! You may also get the chance to see some wildlife -- there was a porcupine that came through the apple orchard in front of the house several nights and also the occasional deer.

If you're like us and enjoy ice cream outings on vacation -- Stewarts Shops have very generous servings of hard ice cream with lots of flavors to choose from, and the Wind Chill Factory has huge servings of soft ice cream with flavors that vary from time to time. You're also about an hour away from Lake George Village where there are outlets, tons of shops and restaurants, mini golf places, water parks, etc, which you can easily enjoy for the day while stil enjoying a quieter place to return to.

Lovely Lake George family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our extended family. We had 10 people most of the week. The home has 2 bedrooms on the main floor, so we were able to include my 87 year old mother who had just had total hip surgery. There are 3 additional bedrooms upstairs.

The house was very clean. The kitchen was exceptionally well stocked for a rental, plenty of glasses, dishes, serving bowls. There is a gas grill and an extra fridge in the garage.

The lakefront is very private, which is unusual. From the dock we couldn't see any of our neighbors. If you're looking for a large, comfortable family spot to gather for a week in the Adirondacks, I'd recommend this fine spot.

Perfect Vacation by the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Pete was easy going, very helpful in letting us know what's around the area and accommodating through phone and email. The house was well equipped with many of the stuff that we needed for a group gathering.

The lake front dock was walkable and in excellent shape. We were able to rent a boat from Snug harbor ~25 min drive from here and park our 19 footer here overnight without a problem. The grill was conveniently located in the garage as well as a second fridge which made it sooo convenient. We grilled pretty often and utilized the bonfire. Water activities were amazing since Pete had a kayak in the basement. The overall house was a bit dated and the furniture and mattress could use an update but overall... we had a great time at this rental. Everyone had such an amazing time, i still receive compliments as far as "oh, we should have stayed a day longer" or "lets go back".

After how well it went and how much we all loved the house, i would defniitely rent from Pete again. Thumbs up on this rental. Would have received an extra star if some things were more updated.
