About the property

4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, open living space, firepit, large front deck

Lincoln Log chalet-style cabin with three bedrooms, two full baths and half bath with laundry room in basement. Home is 'green' because we used environmentally friendly products from Coler Natural Insulation and re-used other products.

Main floor has two bedrooms, full bath, living room with gas-powered woodstove, dining room, and kitchen with granite countertops and full appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. The living room and dining room have cathedral ceiling with two pairs of sliding doors to an 8' x 24' deck. Upstairs has a loft open to rooms below and a master bedroom (queen bed with memory foam mattress) and full bath. Basement has a room with two bunk beds, large hallway with closet, half bath with washer/dryer and one-car garage.

Beautiful wooded view of the mountains surrounding Tripp Lake. Guests enjoy membership to the Tripp Lake Beach & Tennis Club, which is a short walking distance away.

Lake George is 15-minute drive away; historic Saratoga Springs is 45-minute drive away; the Olympic village of Lake Placid is a little more than an hour away. Hiking in the high peaks of the Adirondacks is also nearby. We are also close to all the wonderful Adirondack activities, such as white-water rafting, tubing, hiking, cruise boats, powerboat rentals, downhill skiing, train rides, gondola rides, Six Flags Great Escape, shopping, dining, historical attractions, nature trails, horseback riding.

About David Washburn

David and Demetria have lived in Saratoga Springs since 1990. We built the Green Chalet in 2008 with hosting guests in mind. We love to share and have enjoyed meeting all our guests. They've come from England, Canada, Michigan, Ohio, California and, of course, New York and New England. We often host two families or three-generation families.

David Washburn purchased this chalet in 2008

Why David Washburn chose Chestertown

The home features open living space with plenty of comfortable sleeping quarters, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor gas grill on a large front deck, firepit for summer s'mores and plenty of parking, including a one-car garage. As our guests, you have full access to our Tennis & Swim Club amenities -- sandy beach with eight large umbrellas, lounge chairs, swimming area, lifeguards, kayaks, canoes and paddle boats. We also have eight Har-Tru (clay) tennis courts.

In a word: Nature. The lake doesn't allow motors, so it thrives with fresh water fish, ducks, loons, frogs and turtles.

What makes this chalet unique

Our guests love the open living space, the comfortable bedrooms, the board games and the convenience of washer/dryer and the beach. We meet our guests upon arrival to make you feel welcome and comfortable and to answer questions that help kick off your vacation in the right direction.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Green Chalet. The accommodations were very comfortable. We had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The chalet was conveniently located in a peaceful, quiet quaint town, yet just a

few minutes from Lake George. Highly recommend a stay at the Green Chalet!

Immaculate Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Green Chalet at Tripp Lake was flawless! The home is impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, and nestled sweetly into a lakeside community. The walk to the lake is easy, and the private beach is a serene retreat from the hustle and bustle of many vacation destinations. If you are looking for clean, comfort, and quiet, Green Chalet at Tripp Lake is just the place for you. David and Demetria have truly thought of everything. In addition, the property is strategically located between many points of interest. I just cannot say enough about this property or its exceptional owners! I left just today and am longing to return. It was the perfect vacation for my family and me. Thank you, David and Demetria, for sharing this little slice of perfection! We could not be happier!
