This home is right on the lake with lake views from all of the main rooms as well as the master bedroom and an office which can double as an extra bedroom (convertible couch).
The home is perfectly clean on the inside and has a kitchen that is very well equipped. Beds/pillows are comfortable. Seating is, likewise, very comfortable and generous with various places to find a spot to read and reading lamps are excellent.
It is tucked away on a quiet lane so that was a bonus.
We drove up on a Sunday night and hit a deer and thankfully, able to drive the car on in, but then realized we really needed to have it hauled off for repair/demolition (decision still pending). All the back and forth with insurance people/towing companies took a fair amount of time from each day until it was finally towed late Friday morning. We were supposed to vacate Friday morning.
The owners were wonderfully accommodating in allowing us to stay on. That was a blessing.
Would highly recommend this house. It’s clean, comfortable, generously sized and beautifully positioned on a lovely lake.
We were a large family that rented two houses to accommodate 20 plus people to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. This house was the smaller of the two, but so lovely that we did two dinners there for everyone. Scrupulously clean, over-the-top comfortable, very private, and stunning lake view to wake up to in the morning. There was a small breaker box issue but it was quickly resolved. We will stay there again!
The view and the facility were spectacular!
We stayed for three nights. We loved the location and view. The accommodations were comfortable. The house was clean and well furnished.
Only a few problems- no gas in grill; washing machine spin cycle didn't work and dryer was not very efficient taking very long time to dry- didn't appear to put out much heat. We didn't put on electric wood stove because there are loose wires under it so we were hesitant to touch it.
We would like to rent again in future. The house is spacious and view is awesome.
We spent the weekend in this beautiful home to visit our son attending SUNY Plattsburgh. The home is located in a beautiful location on a private lake side drive. The kitchen was ideal for cooking for a group and the fireplace made everything perfect. The. updated bathrooms added a very nice touch. Overall excellent stay, highly recommend.
