About Erin Reitnauer

This was the house I grew up in and threw out the years it became our vacation getaway. I currently live in Hornell NY and spend alot of my time being extremly busy with my job during the summer months. I hope anyone that chooses to spend time at the house leaves as relaxed as it leaves me.

What makes this house unique

Carolyn's Cottage is named after my mom, who I loved very much. I have such great memories of spending hours on a porch swing with her just rocking and enjoying the sights and sounds. I hope anyone that visits our home takes away great memories of their own.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Erin's house was exactly as described. The only thing we needed to buy was food and wood for the fire pit! The house was clean and comfortable and the yard and dock had plenty of space for us to spread out. There's not a lot to do in the area, but we lucked out with the weather and were content to kayak and hike during the day and sit aound the fire pit at night!!

Peaceful Lake George!

  • 5 of 5

Great dog friendly rental. Our labs had a blast on the dock. Friendly neighbors too. Two houses down said our dogs were their entertainment for the weekend dock diving. Next door neighbor was friendly as well. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies and the home was clean and well kept. Great location north end of lake george right across the lake from the marina, close to wal mart and Hague. Thank you Erin for being so accomodating!

What a special spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the cottage for our summer vacation with our 2 kids and 2 labbies. Morning coffee on the deck overlooking the water, paddling the afternoon away and evening fires looking onto the lake made it a fun and peaceful vacation for our family. Erin was amazing to work with. Super responsive to all of our questions. Would highly recommend this quaint spot for a family vacation!! Only drawback of the area is that the restaurant options are pretty limited.

We'be been renters at LG for 10 years and the cottage was the best place yet.

Erin was a delight to speak with and responded to all correspondence within an hr via email and minutes by phone.

The cottage had everything you needed. Spacious and clean. Pet friendly was a huge plus. All the amenities ... washer & dryer, wifi & cable TV for the kids, kayaks & canoe, right on the lake with a dock and a nice fire pit in the yard. Not to mention AC in the bedrooms (although not needed on our trip)!! The deck outside provides a great hangout overlooking the lake with a grill and dining reason to ever be inside!!

Not sure if some of the previous reviewers are experienced renters at the lake citing the cottage as dated when it should read updated or the "odor" which was only present in the with every basement so close to the lake. It was not noticable in the cottage.

There was some was some evidence of geese/duck visits but common on a lake front property and it does not distract from the beauty of the property.

Located just above "the rocks" in Ti ..for those familiar with the lake, it makes a perfect area for less noise then those at the lower end of the lake. 5 min boat ride to all the boating fun with Snug Harbor boat rentals a stones throw away. We kayaked over there! The dock is spacious and ready for your boat or rental & great to just relax and enjoy the scenery.

Can't say enough great things about the cottage. Definitely on our list to rent again.
