  • Peaceful, relaxing, amazing for 4-person family - Lake Cottage

    "We simply had such a great time as a family staying for more than a week in Lorrie & Rick Lake Cottage in August. The cottage was very clean (at arrival and during) and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were good and we figured out the benefits of air-conditioning when it is over 90F outside . We really appreciated the local goodies in the fridge for breakfast as well as the outdoor activities in the front of the cottage (kayak, bikes, fire-place). We could even swim in the lake due to the high temperature. We were introduced to the S'mores with a real dark sky with plenty of stars... Jogging around the lake (2,8miles) was a good and probably necessary exercise to stay in good shape. Lorrie and Rick are amazing hosts: they are at the same time available and "invisible"; they can provide really good tips and activities such as the Owe's Cavern. The main house is also amazing: we noticed all the work, time and 'love' that Lorrie & Rick invested in their home. In case you feel hungry, the small grocery around the corner can provide with pizzas and wings, as well as fresh beer. The situation allows to get to Lake George in about 90min, Saratoga Springs in 60min and NYC in less than 3hours. The pictures are actual: this is really it. It was great to take our breakfast/lunch or dinner in front of the house, or just above the lake. The kids were amazed of the scenery every single day. There is almost no traffic. Last but not least: yes, there is WiFi and Sat-TV ... but do you go in such an amazing and relaxing place to watch a screen for hours? In short, we highlz recommend this place but please don't say it too loud... or we might face overbooking and we won't be able to book when we come back next time. To Lorrie & Rick: we thank you for making our "NY Up State" visit such a amazing time. We hope the little cat found his way back home in great shape. Take care and we wish you all the best!"

  • What's in the pictures is what we got. Amazing!

    "We stayed for 10 weeks!! Fred and JJ could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Old Chatham and the entire area are wonderful, relaxing and restorative."

  • Perfect for Family Winter Get-away

    "My family and I met up with some close friends and their families for a long weekend around the Holidays. We had a wonderful stay. The owner and local caretaker were both very helpful and accommodating. They really went above and beyond to meet our needs. The house was warm and comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes for our family meals. We fit 5 couples and 2 babies comfortably. It's a beautiful house and setting with gorgeous lake views. This house feels well loved and made us feel immediately at home. We would stay here again anytime, and actually hope to return for another reunion in the future."

  • Very cozy and quiet. The view of the lake is so serene.

    "My husband and I were looking for a place to get away from the city for a few days and this was the perfect choice. The cottage was very quiet, and the scenery around it was great! Gail (cottage owner) was very attentive and extremely accommodating. She responded pretty quickly to all my questions and made sure to let us know that if we had any questions about anything that we could contact her. If you are traveling there in the winter and have to rent a car, I strongly suggest getting a car with all wheel drive. The weather can be a little unpredictable and the cottage is located off a very windy (and hilly) road."
