The property was better than I expected it to be. The house was beautiful.
I loved the house and the property. It was more then I expected. There was more then enough room for my family. The pool area was so beautiful and we had so much fun there. The Fire Pit and area around it was soooo spacious. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a beautiful place for any occasion. I hope to rent it next year for my family reunion. Had the most wonderful time.
Everything broke hot water doesn’t work bathrooms flash doesn’t work dirty everything.this house rewinds my family vacation.
What? Are we talking about the same house? I, myself do the final inspections after the maids complete their work. These guests say they stayed in August 2017. Why are they leaving a review 6 months later?
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.
So happy to hear that family memories were created here during your stay. Welcome back soon. Thank you for the nice review! Glenda
I would definitely recommend this house to my friends. It's very spacious and was secluded . I had the most perfect birthday weekend with my nine other friends . Would definitely come back and rent from them again .
Whatta HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We so appreciate feedback such as this. Would love to have you visit again in the future. Thanks so much. Glenda
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.
Thank you so much, Ashesh, for touching on important places to visit with short travel time. You're so correct on that. Please consider revisiting soon! Glenda
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.
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
