Mitten Rock Celebration and family reunion-

  • 5 of 5

Mitten Rock house was the perfect place for our family gathering. After exhaustive research and looking at many places it lived up to every hope. My fathers 90th birthday was the occaison for four families actually counting he and my mom. We were twelve. The guest house is very connected by a short breezeway and all but one of the many bed rooms have lake views and even it was just great. We have camped for fifty years as a family tradition on the lake and the house was a welcome difference yet still allowed the lake experience. It had everything we could possibly want. Much of our time was spent relaxing on the dock and swimming. The dock is surrounded by shallow water two to three feet and was entirely safe and comfortable for the very young children and their parents. Amazingly clean sand all around there. We found mitten rock by swimming out which is a surprising reproduction of a mitten indeed. The views and the location were fantastic.relaxing on the lawn also wonderful in the seating provided. The kitchen had every possible size platter and implement. The restaurant in Hague was fantastic our one night out. All together a total success!

Special Adirondack Location Location Location !

  • 5 of 5

Recently my family need a break so we went online to find a home in the Adirondacks and on a lake that would allow us to hike mountains, fish, kayak, swim and not go far to do it all. Well we found Mitten Rock Cottage in beautiful Sabbath Day Point on Lake George in Upstate NY. We did everything I mentioned every day and had one of the best family vacations ever! The house was very well kept and had a true Adirondack feel with everything you need. The owners were very gracious from the start and cared a lot about what we needed. We have been renting homes for over 28 years around the globe and if you ever want to take in a truly beautiful adventure stay here! Shawn & Chris are awesome & really care about their home & their customers!

Thank you again for the use of your home . It was everything you said & more!

Best Regards,

Marty & Family

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Mitten Rock Cottage was perfect for our family trip! We had three small families with 7 children total, each family had their own space, there was plenty of room for everyone and a perfect setup for group meals and gathering!

Beyond that the house was a perfect lake retreat, very nice and very comfortable. An amazing yard overlooking the lake, perfect for kids soccer and baseball games; and the private dock was the absolute perfect place to spend most of our free time! Swimming, fishing, kayaking, boating, etc. All of it was right there at the end of the yard, on a beautiful part of the lake! There is nowhere quite like Lake George, and Mitten Rock Cottage was a perfect place to experience it!

A slice of heaven in Lake George!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect layout for our group of three small families. Each family had their own space...one in the guest house, one upstairs and one in the first floor master suite. The owners Shawn and Christine were very accommodating and answered all of our questions promptly. During our stay we enjoyed the beautiful crystal clear, calm waters of Northern Lake George. We felt like we had the lake to ourselves! There is practically no boat traffic, so tubing, water skiing and wake boarding was a breeze. We saw bald eagles flying above us from the expansive back yard. We saw shooting stars at night from the open front yard. We swam, paddle boated and played off the dock for endless hours each day. Definitely one of our favorite vacations was at Mitten Rock Cottage!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Sit on the dock in the evening and hear the loons calling. Take your rented boat into Boltons Landing for an early dinner. Walk to Snug Harbor Marina to rent your boat. Swim off of the dock in the crystal clear water. The house is adequate and comfortably sleeps 12. We had a family of 11.....cooked family meals, played badmitton in the extra large front yard overlooking Lake George, and played board games in the family dining room. The screened in porch is a lovely place to have happy hour. Dog friendly and kid friendly. Lots of good restaurant suggestions from the owners.

Wonderful time had by all!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at Mitten Rock. I grew up in Lake George, and this place was perfect for our return visit for our family. Very relaxing, a great get a way from the daily grind, but still had internet access and TV if you wanted. A marina is a walk away if you are interested in renting a boat which our family did, and the views from the dock couldn't be beat. Will definitely keep in mind the next time we head back to Lake George again!!!
