Overview

About the property

A picturesque five bedroom lakefront home with expansive deck & dock

Welcome to Bright Water. Upon entering you will understand immediately why we have christened this home 'Bright Water.' From the moment you walk through the front door, the shimmering waters of Lake George beckon. When staying in this house you will be surrounded by Adirondack charm, but you will have all the amenities of a modern home. This home was renovated in 2006 to expand and update the kitchen, add the master bedroom, improve the main floor layout, and add more space. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that this home maintains Adirondack sensibilities in the form of hand-laid twig-work, a custom, hand built, fireplace and of course the turn of the century paintings of the lake that decorate the walls. This house will quickly become your home for your vacation as you relax on the deck with your morning coffee, retreat to the dock to read a book and take a swim in the afternoon sun and prepare dinner overlooking the lake from the kitchen.

When you enter the house from the driveway the master bedroom is immediately on the left and the office and library is on the right. Continue straight ahead and you'll enter the great room and dining area which is plenty big enough for your entire group to congregate for dinners, games and socialization. The kitchen is to your left and is nicely equipped with modern appliances, two ovens, pots, pans, dishes, and glassware. The deck that spans the entire lakeside of the house features a covered area to allow for dinner outside even if there's a bit of drizzle, and a fully retractable electric awning if you want to escape the sun for a bit on a hot afternoon.

The main level of the house also features an additional bedroom, a full bath and a secluded screen porch that allows the evening breeze to pass through if you'd like to escape the rest of the crowd for a bit and chat on the phone, finish your book, or just relax.

The walkout lower level features three bedrooms with great views of the lake. The first doubles as an office (there is a desk area that can be closed off with a set of folding doors) or playroom and has a trundle style twin day bed that allows for two people to sleep. The second bedroom has a queen bed while the third features another trundle style twin bed. These three bedrooms share a full bath also located on the lower level. Just outside the door on the lower level is a hand-built patio that has great views and allows a little bit of separation from the deck upstairs and easy access to the dock for swimming and relaxing.

The community where this house is located was once a camp and there are four tennis courts, shuffle board, a basketball court, a playground and vast fields for running with kids or having an impromptu softball game. With all the amenities of this property, you can spend weeks without venturing out, but if you want to hit up a restaurant or bar, the town of Hague is just two and half miles away and Bolton Landing and Lake George Village are just 30 minutes away.

About Tim & Kendra Dwenger

Our family built this house in 1980 after renting for several years on the lake. We simply couldn't be without a place in this amazing setting. It's truly a sanctuary for our family and we hope it can be for yours.

Beautiful Home, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Bright Water may be the best house we have ever rented. My family had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend on Lake George. From the beginning, Tim has been extremely responsive, thoughtful and accommodating (couldn't have asked for a better host).

The pictures do not do the property justice - it is extremely spacious and the large deck provides breathtaking views of Lake George. The home is very well maintained, organized and clean. Access to a boat dock was great and the ease of renting from a Marina 2 miles away was fantastic. Additionally, the community has tennis and basketball courts (<5 min walk) available.

I absolutely (10/10) recommend staying at Bright Water and look forward to returning! Tim, thank you for letting us stay in your home.

Great Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I planned this trip for my husband's birthday. We had plenty of space for 2 families with kids. We loved waking up to the georgous views and the star viewing on the deck at night was breathtaking. The check in/out process was easy. We did not use the HOA facilities since we were there after labor day however, the grounds looked incredible. What a great spot. We can't wait to find another weekend to spend at Bright Water.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Amazing rental property. So cozy and warm, fit all 10 of us perfectly! The views from the deck and porch were breathtaking. Well stocked kitchen with anything you may need to make meals. The grounds were awesome for the family including tennis, basketball, playgrounds and fields.

The owners did a great job on communication and made the process so easy. We consider this Lake George at it's best!

Serene Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Well, we're back to our real life. Back to work, school, unpacked, laundry done -- I need a vacation.

I just wanted you to know what a wonderful time we had at your home. We have stayed in this area for more than 20 years and Bright Water was more than we could have hoped for. We had fish for lunch (enough to feed 10) nearly every other day and even some to bring home. A few aches and pains were also brought home by the older guys who tried to play tennis and basketball with the much younger ones. The ladies enjoyed cooking in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen. We took in some amazing sunrises and sunsets from the very accommodating porch. Even got some reading done. And for the first time, a lady won the fishing trophy! So a vacation to remember. Thanks for your hospitality and we're all looking forward to next year already.
