About the property

YEAR-ROUND 3 Br, 1.5 Bath Home On Glen Lake -- Near West & Gore Mtn Skiing

ATTENTION SUMMER 2016 RENTERS: WE ARE NOW BOOKING FOR SUMMER 2016.

Winter rentals are available for those interested in skiing at nearby West Mountain (15 minutes) or Gore Mountain (45 minutes).

You'll feel as though you are way out in the woods, but the fun of Great Escape Park and Lake George are only a few miles away. Our home has everything you will need for a wonderful family vacation including kayaks and a stand-up paddleboard. With so much to do in the area, all you need to do is bring your energy! The lake front is wide and has a gentle slope into the lake for great swimming and water play. You can even bring your own small power boat and keep it at our dock.

Our home has two upstairs bedrooms, one with king bed and one with two twins and a futon. There is also a small downstairs bedroom with one twin. One full and one half bath. We love to cook, so the kitchen is fully outfitted. There is a wonderful deck with covered picnic table, gas grill and outstanding views.

Amazing vacation on Glen Lake!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house on Glen Lake!!! It was even more beautiful than what we imagined from seeing the pictures. The views of the lake from the house are gorgeous, the deck is so relaxing and comfortable, and the adirondack chairs and hammock are also great places to kick back and enjoy the view. We ate most of our meals outside on the deck, in the shade, looking at the water and just feeling great. We used the kayaks every day, as well as the pedal boat, which our 9-year-old daughter loved. We took the pedal boat out into the middle of the lake and jumped into the water right from it, so we really swam wherever we felt like. The water is so clear and a great temperature. We swam multiple times a day. The house itself is very cozy and comfortable. There are books, games, puzzles, and lots of brochures and information about the area. The beds were great and we slept so well. The kitchen is large and has everything you could possibly need or want. We hardly went out to eat, since we loved using the kitchen so much. The bathrooms were also very nice and clean. There's a paved bike path half a mile from the house, which was a surprise to us, and we biked quite a few times right from the property, which was a lot of fun. We also spent two days at Six Flags, and even biked there the second day (taking the bike path most of the way), which was a great way to arrive! We biked to Lake George Village and took a tour boat out on the lake, and went hiking at Pilot's Knob. This was one of the best vacations we've ever had, and by far the best vacation house we've ever rented! We highly recommend it!

Quiet and laid back retreat...Tucked away and yet quick trip takes you to many activities.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our friends and their two children stayed for a long weekend. We enjoyed the fire and the deck. The kayaks were a joy! A quiet early morning paddle was a touch of therapy. The location is ideal since it is off the main path but just a few miles from Lake George and even closer to the shopping for rainy days. The set up is great for close friends or a family. Sleeping arrangements are a loft-like king bedroom that you have to walk through to enter the rear room with 2 twin beds and a futon. Not a big deal for "birds of a feather". We discovered a great walking path just down the road late in the trip...wish we could have explored further. A great day long event is a trip to Fort Ticonderoga...What an amazing part of our history! Glen Lake is definitely a gem!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed staying at Glen Lake -- thanks so much for all of your kind words about the house and the lake. We always find it hard to go home when we are there. We hope you will be able to come again next summer. When you do, please look for our folding wooden screen in the front bedroom that you can use to give a little bit of privacy when folks are going back and forth to the back bedroom.

The BEST kept secret..

  • 5 of 5

I travel alot with my kids, and I must say this was hands down the best vacation we ever took. Lake Glen was beautful. The house provied by Meg had everything we needed and more. Not to mention Frank the care taker was there for all and any of our needs (which wasnt much cause they had it all) I cant wait to go back next year. I selfishly dont want to rave about this place cause Id love to keep it a secret..But that wouldnt be fair!!! If your looking for an awesome relaxing week on a beautiful lake this is def the place to go. Its only a few miles from Lake George (which cant compare to Glen Lake). renting places can sometimes be a hassel but Meg made it so easy, and answered all questions. I would reccomnd this property to anyone...just not a bunch of kids looking to party, Keep it family orientated
