About Ken W
After spending childhood vacations at both the jersey shore and the Adirondacks, I fell in love with the mountains and lakes. My friends parents had homes on Lake George and Upper Saranac. When I began looking for my weekend getaway, I did not want to travel 5 hours to the Saranac area every weekend. Lake George was only 3 hours from NJ, but the homes I could afford were on small lots with shared docks and did not offer any privacy. Venturing out from camping in Lake Luzerne one year, I had driven over to the dam and saw only that portion of the Great Sacandaga Lake, but that was all it took to peak my interest. In February 1993 after looking at just 8 homes on the Sacandaga, I knew that I had to have this home even though it was at the top end of my budget.
Ken W purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1993
Why Ken W chose Town of Day
Location, Location, Location! This house is on what many locals refer to as 'The Boardwalk and Park Place of the Sacandaga' because it is on one of the very few dead end streets that front on the lake. Many Sacandaga houses are on the main road, most of which are across from the lake and on the main road, making them 'Lakefront Homes' with their own beach and dock across a busy road - not child or elderly friendly at all....this home is 'Lake Side' meaning no street to cross to get to the lake....also alot quieter and more private. This part of the lake offers deep water, which is great for boats and swimming off the dock.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Private yet conveniently located. View of the lake from the deck, living room, kitchen, and master bedroom. 50' of direct lake front on deep water with a large dock. Fire pit, patio, gas and charcoal grills, Tavern room with wet bar. Plenty of living and private space. Plenty of parking in the driveway. To get to the lake simply walk down the stairs from the front yard, or load up your ATV or car with the days supplies, and drive down the dirt lane in front of the house....Marinas close by for boat launching or rentals: 3 miles away is the Majestic Mountain Marina 518-696-3727 and 13 miles away is Edinburg Marina 518-863-8398 or for river action, whitewater rafting and kayaking, Sacandaga Outdoor Center is only 7 miles away, call them to find out current hours and rates 518-696-5710

Perfect for us
We have been coming the past 4 summers and love it for our family get together
Thanks Again! Always a pleasure to have repeat guests!
A great place for a family reunion
We stayed here for a week and had 11 people in our group. We had a great time and the house was perfect for large dinners and campfires. With that said, there are many positives and a one negative:
* Large, well equipped kitchen
* A living room, dining room and deck that can accommodate large groups easily
* Very comfortable, large master bedroom and 2nd upstairs bedroom
* A wonderful fire-pit. We had a fire almost every night where we toasted marshmallows and made samores
* Nice dock where we were able to swim and launch our kayaks
* The basement which has 3 bedrooms is very musty and dark. Although the owner stated otherwise, it smelled like it had been wet. There are no windows in the bedrooms so there is no ventilation. All the adults who were sleeping in the basement had difficulty sleeping.
Overall, the pros outweighed the cons and we had a great week on the lake.
The house was wonderful-the weather wasn't
Everyone loved the house. It's spacious and comfortable. The young crowd (early 40's to early 50s) loved the pub in the lower level. The weather didn't cooperate very well. We had some rain most days with some of it being pretty hard. The high-water conditions had necessitated removal of the dock to a spot that made it inaccessible so we went home with clean, dry beach towels and swimsuits and the worms for fishing were released back into the wild. However, since my sons and I had not seen either my niece or my brother for many years, we had lots of time to catch up. The owner was very responsive to all emails when we had questions or concerns.
Me and some family and friends just recently (in mid June) stayed for 5 nights. Overall we were very happy with the place! Everything was clean and well represented from the way it was written up and our expectations. We would stay here again. Plenty of room for cars and plenty of things to do with the great firepit and water nearby etc. The hike down to the water is a bit steep, but there is a access road to help if needed. And many places along the lake are the same way. All rooms are a good size. Great place overall!
Perfect Getaway Location!
We rented the house for the weekend and were very happy. The owner was extremely accommodating. We arrived early and the housekeeper was very gracious and let us in.
The house is HUGE and beautifully laid out. Plenty of sleeping areas and two levels of living area. The wrap around deck is perfect for entertaining. The fire pit was used all weekend and we loved hanging out around it! Would highly recommend staying here!
Thanks for taking the time to write a great review! Glad to hear that you loved the house (we do too, but can't be there full time, yet) and enjoyed a weekend away from it all....
Fabulous property and location
Our family gets together for a weekend each summer. The entire clan loves this place.
They spend the entire day in the water, then sit around the fire pit at night. Great time was had by all!!!!
