    Thank you so much for a wonderful few days not too far from Gore Mountain for skiing. The house was well cleaned and worked well for our family - two young adult children and us parents. We stayed in the upstairs bedrooms and the girls had the downstairs bedrooms, bathroom and living area to themselves.

    We had a large party staying for a wedding at Burlap and Beams. It was so close to the venue that we were able to walk. Parking was great for our many cars, the house was set up with many sleeping arrangements, and it had a pool table and pool for entertainment purposes. The house felt very welcoming when we arrived including a basket of bathroom utensils. I would recommend this quaint and relaxing home.

    The amazingly spacious home is definitely Rustic . The decor is rustic overload. That being said, it is very spacious. The beds were comfortable with clean linens! Plenty of towels were supplied! The pool was great, but could have really used a vacuuming mid way through our stay, which we would have done if it were available.(Since I didn't say anything to Glenda, she had no idea. I'm sure she would have taken care of it if I mentioned it) Overall it was a very nice place to stay. I would recommend it.

    The house is great, could use a little updating in the rooms. It’s great for a group of people!

    When we got to the house and we were shocked with how many places you could sleep in the house. The house could use a little updating, but it’s a nice place to stay if you’re in and out of the house during your stay. We were provided with a lot of towels which was awesome for the pool. We had a big group of us that stayed in the house and it worked out great. We hung out on the outer deck of the house, which had a lot of seats to sit around the table. The pool was perfect temperature as well. I highly recommend staying here if you’re wanting a weekend away. The yard is very big as well. The house is better than it looks in the pictures.

    Nice and secluded

    Glends, the owner, could not have been more helpful! 2 days before arriving I sent an inquiry as to how many refrigerators she had. I needed one for the wedding cake. Otherwise we would have had all our food in coolers. Glenda had a fridge delivered to the porch for us! I couldn't believe it! I would definitely book with her again. Especially anyone using Burlap and Beams as a venue. The house was definitely perfect for the bridesmaids. We used the downstairs to do all the up dos. Lots of space. Pool table. Just perfect for us!

    this house needs some love

    Pros: Lake George is beautiful, Glenda was nice, kids loved the pool, everyone liked having bonfires together at night, house is within driving distance to lots of attractions, everyone had fun playing pool (pool table could use a few new sticks though) Cons: house smelled musty and stale, house needs lots of TLC, no keys were left for us upon arrival (which Glenda quickly took care of), refrigerator was not working because freezer needed to be defrosted upon arrival (which we did ourselves), housekeeping (wait what housekeeping, not sure why I was charged for this), there was no hot water....ever (and then we realized that if we turned the dial to cold we got hot water, lol). Once we cleaned up the house and aired it out it was fine. Our family had a great time in LG. Hope this review helps potential renters.

    Property needs refurbishing. And actually wasn't big enough for our group with 6 small children

    We had a great time, many +s about house - pool, fire pit, parking, garbage & recycle removal was fantastic, hospitality basket was very sweet, house was very clean, Echo Lake was great, BUT hot water ran out constantly, no plug for tub in lower bath with small children made bath time challenging, kitchen too small to eat together, cooking utensils not really usable - in bad shape, no space to put our food in cabinets, not much room to move around in living room, Would need large home for future trip which of course is my fault.

    Dissapointing home stay

    On the first day the heating system and microwave didn't work. The pool wasn't also not clean. Though the owner/manager Glenda tried to help us, one of the guy who came to repair was rude/sarcastic to us as if we rented the place for free and this we didn't like at all. We drove a lot and came to enjoy our stay but his behaviour was not good and this spoiled our mood also...We feel that atleast the owner should check basic things before the guest arrived. LG is a beautiful place but there are lot of bugs outside during hot and humid days so watch out especially during hiking...

    Pictures do not do the house justice at all.

    We were a group of 15, who had a great time in this house last weekend. With lots of game supply for kids, they had lot of fun playing and the bunk beds made their bed time easy on us. Glenda was very quick in her response. I was doubtful about the WiFi based on previous review, but we had no issues with the WiFi, even with 6+ connected devices. Enjoyed grilling outside & playing pool table with friends. Whether you are inside or outside, there is plenty of furnitures to sit. The front of the house has a good space for group activities. Fencing from road makes it feel safe for kids. Overall a great property in a peaceful area, sure to make memories.

    It was awesome.... We were in love with the place.. Love evrlerything...

    Working with Glenda was an absolute pleasure. The place was plenty big enough for my group of 12 adults, one infant and a small dog. The pool was wonderful and refreshing after a day of shopping and gambling at nearby Saratoga. The house is in the middle of nowhere and cell service is non existent but we made the most of it. Everyone had a wonderful time and if we could make any suggestions to the owner it would be to put a screen door in to keep all the bugs and flies out. We would definitely return to this house. Thank you again Glenda for everything.

    We decided to take a family trip to Lake George and found this property. The pictures don't do this place justice. Upon arrival the property was clean, spacious. Picture this... A nice family bbq, swimming all day long followed by a bonfire at night. We were able to take a short drive to Lake George to do some shopping and catch the Mini-ha-ha. Our only regret is that we didn't book longer. There's always next year...

    I planned a girls weekend away! I booked far in advance. Along the months up until the day we arrived I emailed Glenda multiple times with questions and she responded back so quickly. The day we arrived the house was spotless! The home supplied EVERYTHING we needed. The only thing we needed to pack was our clothes and food. She supplied towels (so many), a cute basket in the bathroom of toiletries, floats for the pool, board games, dozens of chairs for outdoor, an iron, broom, vacuum, a fire pit, two parking areas, toaster, coffee pot, DVD player, radio, pool table, you name it, it was there! There was so much room in the home we didn't ever get in the way of eachother. It was a hot weekend, we stayed very cool and comfortable with all the AC units supplied as well! We went into town, Lake George village and there was a Cab company that even came to us and brought us home that night. We also ordered pizza from Marco Polo and they delivered. I was worried we would be so far from everything but in all reality everything was accommodated. I can honestly not complain about anything in the home. It was perfect! The pool was our favorite. It looked brand new. I plan to book another stay here with my family. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us and allowing us to make memories there!

    I would book this house again in a heartbeat

    From the moment we arrived to when we left, this house was a dream come true. The pictures didn't do it justice. Everything you could possibly need was included, from a warm pool to extra towels to propane in the grill. While we took advantage of local white water rafting and zip-lining, we actually didn't even need to leave the house if we didn't want to.

    This was the perfect place for a couples retreat! The pool was very nice and relaxing. It was a really nice touch that towels were provided as well as essentials in the bathroom, (they had toiletries!). My only suggestion for the lovely home is to provide garbage bags but everything else was wonderful.

    I was really excited booking this house (being my first house rental) when we arrived there (a bit too early) the house was messy, beds unmade, etc; and still the house spotless! The mess was fine as long as the housekeeping came. Then we met Glenda, a really nice lady going above and beyond to make this house comfortable for us. When everything was cleaned up we checked out the house and it was HUGE. The pool was decently cleaned and the best part was that it was only 10 min from lake George. It was the only house on the block with trees behind which caused mosquitos in the morning and moths at night which was still okay. Overall, the experience was good for the first time and nothing could beat the price for this huge home. Thank you Glenda it was a pleasure staying in your beautifully decorated home.

    Twelve of us just returned from our vacation and enjoyed this beautiful, comfortable home. Glenda and her husband truly made it very enjoyable, they supplied all the comforts of home. The décor was done with an Adirondack theme throughout the home. Plenty of room for the 12 of us and more. Plenty of beds and linens, and towels. The grounds were perfect for night time bonfires. The pool beautiful. Looking forward to vacationing there again.

    We could not have found a more perfect vacation rental for our family! Even if we did not encounter good weather (though we did) we still would have had a great time! The house is clean, spacious and has a game room with something for everyone to enjoy! Our grandchildren had the best time in the pool from morning until night! Also, there is a gate around the pool not shown in the picture that ensures the safety of young children. The location is within a reasonable distance to Lake George and other interesting sites. The owner Glenda and her lovely granddaughter was like meeting friends that welcomed us to their home and allowed us all the privacy we needed. I spent much time looking for the right house so if you are looking to find a vacation rental near Lake George this house is perfect for you!

    We rented for one week and had an excellent experience with this home. The owners were very accomodating and were there if you needed anything. The house was very clean and spacious. We ran into a problem with our dog kennel and they were more than happy to welcome our two dogs into their home. Our family of 13 people and two dogs fit very comfortably and had a great vacation. We would definitely rent from Glenda again.

    We loved this house! This house is very clean and very large. I had seven girls here for July 4th weekend, the pool is beautiful and crystal clear. We all had our own space and were never on top of each other. Glenda left tons of linens and towels also a nice basket with any little toiletries you may have forgotten. I would recommend this house for anyone who is looking for a nice relaxing weekend outside of Lake George and away from the busy crowds. If you want to go shopping or spend the day at Six Flags it is just a short drive away. FYI only two of the four bedrooms have ac units, the other two bedrooms have small fans. They could use some more fans for the living rooms and kitchen where most people spend a lot of time other then that place was excellent!

    I can't say enough good things about this place. I would highly recommend this place & here's why: *Larger than it looks! (We had a group of 15 people and everyone had a place to comfortably sleep. There's also 2 Living Rooms with Direct TV, 4 areas to eat, a rec room with a pool table, and laundry area). *Great value! (The price is unbeatable for what you get. I looked at a lot of other properties and they didn't sleep as many people or have as many ammenities as this place, and were hundreds of dollars more). *Bring your well behaved dog! (I love being able to go on vacation with my dog cause he is part of our family. I love renting homes from people that can relate to this and offer pet friendly rentals). *Clean as can be! (This place was spotless and smelled great. It was very welcoming). *Nicest People To Rent From! (They are very accomodating and really know how to treat their guests. The grill had propane, they left out fruit for us to make drinks with & eat, they even had a toliteries in the bathrooms incase we forgot tooth paste/tooth brush, soap/shampoo, or even needed some asprin). *Close to Lake George! (Only a short 10 minute drive to the Village of Lake George)
