About Owner/Manager Glenda Duell

My husband, Kent, and I have raised our four children here and now we're really excited about sharing this beautiful place with others. It doesn't get any better than this!

Owner/Manager Glenda Duell purchased this Farmhouse in 1987

Why Owner/Manager Glenda Duell chose Athol

This property has it all. It's private and one can stay here all day and enjoy the surrounding nature or within minutes be in the middle of all the attractions. Please check out the great reviews of our 2 other properties at vrbo # 300732 and # 459630. We promise to take the same care for our guests here, too. Glenda

                                                                  Great place for a family reunion.

                                                                  This was the second time we used the house for a family reunion with 12 people, including 4 young children who enjoyed the pool and spacious yard. We also had another adult and two children during the days. All is very cleaned and well cared for. Our family loved it.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Ashesh S.

                                                                  We stayed here for 3 days. It was an amazing experience. The owner Glenda is an awesome host. The house was decent and pretty clean. We were 15 people, had enough space for all of us. There was enough supplies in the kitchen, rooms and in all the bathrooms. The attraction places are not very far from the house. The wild water river rafting is only 10 minutes away. Hence, a lot of traveling time was saved. Overall it was an extraordinary stay. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family.

                                                                  The house was nice from the outside but really dark and cluttered inside, full of “antique” but useless furniture. It is also far from most Lake George attractions. Flies were everywhere when we got there, despite the owner being in the house at that time. There was no wireless service in the house but there is wifi, which we had to look for and eventually found inside one of the bedrooms (password was located underneath the unit). The floor of the pool was slimy, there was not enough cookware and utensils in the kitchen. We had to ask for more gas since there was only a little in the tank and we had to provide for paper towels and toilet paper as there was not enough for our 3 days stay. We paid for 4 days but stayed only for 3 due to a change in plans but we were okay not staying the entire time as there is really nothing special about the house and the location.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I have read the review several times and have tried to figure out how we could have done better. This guest says first that there was no wifi, but then they found it. They seem annoyed that the password was on the back of the tower. That's where Verizon put it. The comment about the useless antiques is just bizarre. It is clearly advertized as a farmhouse. This is nothing more than a personal preference and so many other guests love them and consider them decorative. We were more than happy to bring more propane. Had we known they were lacking anything like a pot or pan we would have responded with more, as well. Same with the pool. We have a full time maintenace staff. Just let us know. Instead, no communication but a complaint in a review 4 months after their stay. It s maintained and chlorinated, but we don t swim in it. As for the location, most love it there and it s a 10 minute drive to the village. We supply a "starter supply" of paper products and have no control of it s consumption. I was there when the guests arrived and I didn t see ANY fly problem. The review doesn t say where they were. Just can't please some people. Thankfully they are rare. Glenda
