Our Home's Story
Inspired by the original 1910 home that stood on this property, French Mountain Cove is a family retreat with the charm and architecture of an older cabin, but the comfort of a new home. Distanced from the crowds, but close to the best activities, our home has always been a home base for an active vacation or the ultimate destination for a relaxing one. Not a “rental property,” this is our family home shared with parents, siblings and guests. It is only listed for rent during the few weeks each summer that we are unable to use it.

History
This quiet home in a protected cove was rebuilt in 2013 to serve as the gathering spot for our extended family. The original 1910 camp has been in our family since 1944 and was the site of many memorable summer vacations. The new four-season building sits on the exact footprint of the original home, and now affords us the opportunity to gather as a family year-round.

Location
Located on the eastern shore, our home sits on a quiet and peaceful spot, but is a quick drive or boat ride to the active visitor spots of Lake George Village and Bolton Landing. With plenty of space on multiple levels, it is a home built for our family and suited to extended families (grandparents, adult children and grandchildren) spending time together for a week in the summer. Built for family vacations, the home cannot accommodate more than 6 adults.

Overview
The home’s main level has been designed with an open floor plan to allow for an amazing panoramic view from anywhere on the main level. The dining area is anchored with an Amish reclaimed barnwood table with seating for eight. The center seating area has an antique bamboo seating group purchased in the 1940’s and sets the tone of casual elegance throughout this floor; it is perfect for coffee in the morning, afternoon reading, or cocktails in the evening while watching the sunset. The northern third of the main floor holds more casual furniture, a wall mounted television and a gas fireplace – all great for relaxing at the end of the day.

The lake level of this home is an extension of the property’s fantastic 18’x50’ lakeside flagstone patio. The 610 sf room contains comfortable furniture and a large entertainment television and a summer kitchen just off the grill area. The lake level allows for guests to be at the water’s edge all day without ever leaving the conveniences of the house.

The top floor of the home has four bedrooms and two fully-outfitted ¾ baths. The master bedroom and sleeping porch each have a queen bed, a third bedroom has a twin bed with trundle and the fourth bedroom has bunk twin beds with an additional trundle. The separate guest cabin boasts a small porch of its own, and has a full bed, full bath, and small bar sink/apartment refrigerator.

Rental Information
Our home is only available for a few select rental weeks each summer. It is a family home, so other than those few weeks the house is occupied.

Summer 2017
The 2017 high rental season for this property is June 17 – September 9. During this period, the home is only available for rent from Saturday (check in at 3pm) to Saturday (check out at 10am). Please note that there is always a seven night minimum stay requirement for renting French Mountain Cove. We cannot rent for long weekends or short holiday stays.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1944

About the owner: Growing up in Albany, NY, this property was our vacation home. Summers here started on the last day of school in June and ended right before we headed back to classes in September. The property is used by family throughout the year and is only available for a few weeks each summer when we have commitments out of town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Completed in 2013, this four-season home has been completely re-built by the same family that has owned the property since 1944. Designed by a local architect to honor the original 1910 home, this house combines craftsman architectural and design details with modern conveniences. The four bedroom home, boathouse and guest cabin sit directly on 160 feet of lakefront on the quiet, residential East side of Lake George. Each unique part of this new home was designed around how three generations of our family have lived here for the past 70 years. From the relaxing, residential atmosphere of the Eastern Side of Lake George to the stunning sunsets it affords, this property has always offered us a place to go to enjoy the company of friends and family.
