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 Hadley

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 Getaway Location!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had great weather, and the house was spacious enough for a bunch of kids and adults. Nice dock for the kids to play on.(and adults!) Love the location on the lake, and the landlord and manager were extremely helpful!

Had a Great Time with the Family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week. Weather was perfect. No problem with bugs. AC was not missed. The house was very spacious and the the deck was great! The bar room downstairs was nice and the Foosball table saw a lot of use. We enjoyed the outdoor fireplace every night. The only suggestion I would make is that the stairs leading down to the dock need work and the ladder to get out of the water onto the dock should be longer (more rungs). Not sure we figured out all the light switches before we left :) maybe some labels would be good. Overall a great stay (more like 4.5 stars)

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write the nice review! and yes, alot of lights and labeling them is probably a good idea, my kids still turn every one on then off to find which one is which....unfortunately the stairs took a beating this past season, plus the tree that fell into the lake just before you arrived made them even more crooked. I plan to get a permit from the regulating district to replace them. Glad you enjoyed the stay and hope to have you back again in the future!

A great place for a family reunion

  • 4 of 5

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.
