The photos were very accurate of the property and it was so beautiful. We loved being here for the week and all of the choices of activities at this house ( game room, hot tub, fire pit, dock, canoes, etc.) was the best. We explored Lake George and just had a wonderful week. The house was just big enough for our family get together and allowed us to all have fun and make memories.

Great home. Perfect for a large group. Loved every minute we spent there

The property is great - big yard, fire pit, hot tub, arcade room and right on the water with big docks. Was a great spot with lots of kids as they were able to run around to different activities and it's pretty secluded so we didn't have to be on them full time. The house is well appointed - nice furnishings, good for big group - large couches, open kitchen. We had a great time. One note - if you're going in the offseason (we went mid April), there's restrictions on using kayaks, etc. in the water which was a bummer. We went last April to another property and were able to go on the water full time. Kids still jumped in even though it was freezing but would have been better to take out a kayak or paddle boat since it was 60+ degrees and sunny when we were there. Overall, nice spot and I'm sure it's a ton of fun in the summer.

Me and some friends rented this property for a ski trip and it was perfect! I'm always wary about getting too excited about a location from the pictures, since often times they're more flattering than real life, but the property was just as spacious and luxurious as the photos led us to believe. I especially appreciated the hot tub, which was the best way to end a long day of skiing in 0 degree weather. The property manager was extremely communicative and answered all questions I had almost immediately.

Everything about this property is fantastic! A perfect amount of space for 13 adults, with all the amenities we needed. The hot tub was particularly fantastic, and the management team was quite helpful when the weather got rough toward the end of our visit. Would definitely come back again!

There are some excellent aspects. It was very clean and the beds are comfortable. Reservation and check-in was virtual and worked well. Smores fixins and a bottle of wine were nice welcomes. The home is decorated nicely, especially if you like an Etsy aesthetic. The hot tub was good. The wifi was strong
But the problems are real. There is not a single closet in the entire home - really, not in any bedroom, the kitchen, any bathroom, or foyer. Nowhere. Broom/mop just lie against a wall. There is a coat tree by the front door that gets overwhelmed, so coats have nowhere to go. In the kitchen there is no pantry or a a single wall cabinet. Groceries simply get stored on the kitchen counters - there is nowhere else for them. All the cups, plates and glasses are in floor cabinets, meaning constant bending and searching. Bedrooms do not have chairs and some of the beds are really high (there are step stools). No place to sit or put on shoes. And no place to put all the decorative bed pillow; you just throw them on the floor when sleeping. And the heat is single zone and single controller, so someone was always unhappy.
The main floor is all open, which can work well, but becomes difficult if someone is looking for privacy. We used all the bedrooms, so if you need a quiet space for work or zoom calls there is nowhere good to retreat to.
The separate game house is fun, but not as functional as you'd expect from the photos. All the arcade games and pool table are mini-size, which is OK, but not what we were expecting. Some of the games just don't work well and are mainly for show.
There is not much to do in the area during the winter when we were there. Also, if you are looking for a respite from national politics look elsewhere, as several neighbors are flying flags that include truly offensive language against one party. On the plus side, the small lake (the house is not on Lake George) and dock area look great for summer activities.
I could see giving the home a 4 instead of 3, but one thing was particularly off-putting. Evidently there is local legislation trying to limit VRBOs and similar rentals. The owner is involved in the fight, which is totally understandable. But the owner has placed political lawn signs on the issue around the property, which makes renters feel like they are unwanted interlopers.
Also, the cost is on the high side for this property. So, 3 stars (maybe 4 in the summer).

The location of the property is amazing so we’ll kept comfortable beds extremely clean they provide you with all the things that you might need . Loved the stay very comfortable and relaxing wish we could have stayed a little longer . Just one thing was not very pleasant was that the next doors were mowing all morning we could not sleep well because of the noise otherwise everything was very nice .

Really enjoyed our stay at dockside manor. The property is great, fully stocked (more than we thought), and our family had a great time. If only northern living could have brought us a few more warm, sunny days
Stayed August, 2021
There were 11 of us and everyone was thoroughly amazed. House is fabulous, kids just loved all the amenities. Can’t say enough and certainly hope to be back.

Dockside Manor is absolutely perfect! The home is beautiful with all the comforts of home. It was well stocked with everything you would need for vacation. The bar/game room was a big hit with everyone, old and young. The deck on Hadlock Pond was awesome! It had kayaks, paddle boards, and life jackets for all. It was a perfect location to view the 4th of July fireworks! Definitely a home we would come back to again!
