One nice big house, on one lakeside acre, for one group at a time. A 25-year history of good times. Spacious, well-kept property on the west shore of Lake George. Open all year. Off-season rates proportionate to groups of 4 to 10.

.The house has five bedrooms, including a master bedroom to die for, and four full baths. Large living area for getting together; distant sleeping for getting away. Small but unusually well-equipped kitchen. Ask for list of kitchen items. TV's with DVD players in the living room, the master bedroom, and a downstairs bedroom. The TV in the living room is a Samsung Smart TV. Dogs welcome provided they don't bark a lot and bother my good neighbors! Pool table inside the house. Hardwood floors, knotty-pine walls. Garage for two cars.

Playhouse with a high ceiling, doll crib, toys. Natural land features of native trees, exposed bedrock.


THE WATERFRONT The waterfront includes a boat house with a deck above, a covered slip for your boat, a dock with a ladder you can climb back up on or swim from, and a shallow wading area. There are glorious views of the bay, mountains, and lake.

Available for your use are two open-top kayaks (the safer kind) and an old-fashioned row boat with oars and an anchor, along with a large array of life jackets of every size--a must for going out in the kayaks or row boat, of course.

The deck is furnished with five lounge chairs, two straight chairs, a love seat, and a picnic table. Two other lounge chairs are tucked under some shade trees on the land. A new pergola provides shade and a roof you can sit under during a rain shower.

Swimming in the clear, cool water is a true pleasure. A sandbox will entertain the little ones. There is also a fire pit, which is the scene of grand evening enjoyment--possibly with a million stars to gaze at overhead or a moon rise reflected off the lake in the background, and s'mores or wine in hand.

CAPACITY The home contains five bedrooms and four full baths and is arranged and furnished to accommodate a party of ten people including babies and children. It is available for rental all year round

.INTERNET The house is equipped with a high-speed Internet connection complete with wired and wireless network access.

OWNER NEARBY The owner lives 2 miles from the house, year round, and will personally and promptly respond to guests questions or problems that arise during their stay.

TOTALLY PRIVATE RENTAL When you rent this property, please understand that you will have it entirely to yourselves. The house is not a part of an association. No one else will be using the house or driveway or waterfront or boat house or docks, including the owner.

Ten minutes to Lake George Village and Bolton Landing. Thirty minutes to skiing at Gore Mountain and West Mountain.

-"Our family of seven enjoyed a week's vacation at this lovely home. The home is private, spacious, quiet, nd relaxing. Private bedrooms and baths for all. Well-equipped kitchen (the best we've seen!). Melissa is a very accommodating host, excellent with communication and planning. Lake George is a beautiful place to visit and a vacation worth taking! Thanks, Melissa, for sharing your lovely home.

"Thanks so much. We had a wonderful time that went much too fast. Your house has everything, and more, that is needed. It was so nice to meet you after all the faceless e-mails! Again, thank you.

Thank you for everything! As usual, we all had a great time. We try to clean up after ourselves as best we can. The cold weather and snow won't keep us from a campfire. We all love the house and property so much. It is exactly what we were looking for. We will definitely be coming up next year. Thanks again!!!Thank you again for the use of such a lovely home and beautiful setting.

Thanks for [lending us] your great house! It suited our needs perfectly. Your multiple bathrooms allowed us all to get out so much faster! Your naturalized yard was so relaxing and beautiful! We lounged on your wonderful boathouse deck one evening with the moon full, and then we toasted marshmallows over a perfect campfire. That memory will last for a long time. Much luck to you with your ecological awareness endeavors!

Went up for a few days at the end of March and had a truly relaxing, lovely experience. Melissa was extremely nice and helpful by e-mail and in person. House was even better than pictures gorgeous and meticulously maintained. Deck has incredible views of the lake perfect for sunning and reading even on the less sunny days. On the chillier day, we stayed close to home and enjoyed the cozy living room with gas fireplace and watched DVDs and ate homemade meals cooked in the well-appointed kitchen every pot/pan/utensil you could ever need! Had a campfire the next night in the fire circle and roasted hot dogs and smores while looking up at a million stars. Everything you need in terms of grocery, restaurants, supplies, is nearby in Bolton Landing or Lake George Village. Took small side trips but mainly just enjoyed down time in a really beautiful setting. Hot water was excellent and plentiful. Would love to come back in summer for boating and swimming, but really loved how quiet the neighborhood and lake were during the off-season.We had a wonderful time. the whole family was thrilled with the cabin, the lake, the boathouse, everything!
We had a very nice time. The lake is so beautiful and many fish made themselves available for our family fishermen!! The house was very comfortable and the dock area perfect for our needs! Thanks again.
That house is worth every penny.

This is one fabulous home!! Super well-equipped. We had a great time! We've looked at other places and see that yours is prime real estate.
Your homes are just beautiful, and they are kept in such immaculate condition

Dreams Do Come True! [We] thoroughly enjoyed our mini vacation at your most warm and beautiful beach house with some of our best friends. We look forward to returning next year!

The place is much, much nicer than I ever imagined. Its so private for everyone both inside and outside the house.

I just wanted to say thank you again. You have a wonderful house. It has a very warm and welcoming energy. Our whole family had a great time. My granddaughter who is 2 just loved walking down to the lake and everyone had to take turns bringing her down there. She is very interested in nature and loved the lake, the mountains, and Mr. Moon. And she made sure everyone saw all of this. Just before we left she asked me to bring her down to the water and she wanted everyone to go down there, which we did. It was a nice ending to a great weekend
I was planning on sending you an email to let you know what a truly wonderful time we had. The house was even better than expected and with baby gates, high chairs and cribs it really felt like home!! We can't thank you enough for lending us your beautiful home. Our family made some wonderful memories during this past week. I've told everyone about the house and you may get some future rentals out of it Again, thank you so much for opening your doors to us. May your home always be filled with happiness and people who appreciate its beauty.

Thank you for an amazing weekend!

About the Owner

Melissa and her family lived in Lake House for a number of years, taking in Lake George’s exquisite beauty and taking advantage of the fine boating, swimming, and hiking available. As their family needs evolved the house grew to accommodate them. Now Melissa lives just two miles away and is readily available to see to the needs of her guests and the care of the houses. She is passionate about protecting the lake’s pristine waters so generations to come can enjoy it as much as she does. A recent reviewer called her "a very accommodating host, excellent with communication and planning."

Great property

The property was spectacular. Perfect location and the house was immaculate. The communication with owner was great and she always got back to us with answers to our questions. The directions were very specific as far as check in and check out. Owner left helpful notes throughout property that helped a great deal. The use of the garage was a huge bonus for us.

Snow fun

Wonderfully relaxing mini-vacation. Even the dogs enjoyed their fun in the snow. Would love to spend more time in the Fall in this very comfortable home.

Fun family reunion!

After a last minute change in locations due to a septic tank mishap, the landlord was very accommodating by offering a smaller property across the street at a discounted price. We enjoyed a hike in the woods and being so close to downtown Diamond Point. Very easy to find, welcoming and clean. We didn’t have great cell phone service, but there was internet. The only issue we had was all the notes all over with detailed instructions. Made us nervous we would do something wrong. And expecting 11 people to leave by 10am checkout and run dishwasher and empty it before we left, along with other tasks to close the house seemed a little above and beyond guest responsibility. So happy we asked for a later checkout time.
All in all we had a great time and landlord was very friendly and easy to work with.

Family Thanksgiving Trip

Very gracious and communicative host. Melissa was helpful and informative throughout our entire experience. From initial booking to post checkout, she provided thorough, relevant, and helpful information about the property and surrounding areas. The house comfortably accommodated our party of eight with an infant and small dog. The kitchen is small, but it was adequately equipped with enough items to easily prepare all of our meals during our stay, to include Thanksgiving dinner and breakfast every morning. The driveway is narrow, but was able to accommodate our three full size trucks. The walk from the parking spots to the house is slightly downhill, muddy, and slippery, which could pose a challenge for someone with mobility issues. Be careful and watch your step and you should be fine. It's an older home with a rustic feel and located slightly off the lake front (a short walk from the house to the dock), but the nightly rate is extremely fair for the location and the property. The dock is large and overlooks the lake. It can accommodate several people fishing or relaxing in the sun. Short drive (12 minutes) to a decent trail walk up to "The Pinnacle" which is an easy/moderate 1.5 mile hike with a great view of the lake from the top. We were there over Thanksgiving so the town was fairly deserted, but there were several businesses and locations which appeared to be a great time during the summer months. The home provided an excellent opportunity for our family to all be together and spend quality time for Thanksgiving.
