As described, this cabin is rustic, reminiscent of Adirondack camps my family stayed in when I was young. However, its updated with modern kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer, and bathrooms (no outhouses ;-) ). It was well furnished. We didn't cook more than boiling water but dishes, glasses, etc were plentiful. Sofas and beds were comfy.
Contact was helpful and responsive when I reached out with a question.
Not enough good can be said about the location - the house is perched on a hill on the western shore of Lake George in a neighborhood of similar houses. The view is fabulous. It is 10 minutes from the Village, an easy drive. There is access to the water via a flight of stairs which are pretty steep, matching the terrain.
We're hoping to be back.
Exactly what we were looking for. Lake view and boat slip. Ate our meals on enormous deck overlooking southern part of lake. Got to see Thursday night fireworks right from dock. Nice neighborhood setting. Two baths and laundry were just what we needed. Cozy couches and good water pressure.
The location of the house was great with an amazing view of the lake and the downtown area was only a 5 minute drive.
The house was a little smaller than expected but still fit 5 of us comfortably. The "sleeping loft" was not accessible although this was not mentioned anywhere in the booking. There was no seating down at the lake and the chairs on the deck were quite uncomfortable. New chairs were delivered to the house while we were there but not assembled until our last day.
After two days we had to go to the store to pick up basic supplies like napkins, paper towels, toilet paper and hand soap. Not sure if that is normal for a rental like this.
Hi Paul, thanks for taking the time to review your stay. After reading your feedback, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
- We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the loft being off-limits. This decision was made for insurance purposes, and to ensure transparency, we'll update the listing to ensure future guests are aware of this beforehand.
- There are two Adirondack chairs and a picnic table by the lake. While we ordered additional Adirondack chairs and picnic tables, unfortunately, they didn't arrive until halfway through your stay. We didn't want to disrupt your visit by assembling them while you were there, but we'll make sure they are readily available for future guests.
- Regarding toiletries and other essentials, we do provide an ample supply for our guests. However, once that amount runs out, it is standard in the vacation rental industry for guests to purchase their own supplies as needed.
Once again, we truly appreciate your feedback, and your comments will help us enhance the experience for all our guests.
This cabin was the best. Great view, everything worked, everything clean. Five of us spent the week with Americade, and we couldn't have been happier.

Upon arrival the house was clean. It was difficult to understand the house “rules/tips” we only locates a one page info on the side of the fridge 2 or 3 days into our stay.
There was a question as to where the water area was for use to use. The pictures made it appear it was the Sandy beach in the photo. It was not (the neighbors were sure to let us know), it was down the stairs to the left (rear) of the house. The owner did respond to my inquiry.
The sun daily shown on the deck and on dock, either place was stunning and relaxing.
All 3 adults and 12 yr old had an amazing time. The heart is town is a small 3 min drive away.
There was a leak in the master bedroom closet when it rained-the owner did not reply to that. It changed nothing for me as I simply moved my clothes…more of my concern was the damage it may have been doing to the cabin (I am an insurance agent).
I stay in the Adirondacks 1-2 times per year….never in Lake George, this was a bit out of my price range, but I am so glad we did stay here!
Please don’t read into the other reviews…this cabin was exactly what you would expect in the mountains!
