In 2011 my family and I were looking for a family vacation to suit all our needs. 1) for my husband love for the outdoors, 2) My love for sun, water, and shopping, 3) my kids love for activities. We decided on lake george. This listing it seemed to be perfect for everyone due to the size, price and location. I can not begin to tell you how pleased I have been with my experience. This house a charming Adirondack cottage. It gives you the feel a cabin but with the modern amenities such as cable, wifi, air conditioning, gas grill, etc. Helen is a great owner she even supplies some of the last min necessities that some of us would forget like, pans, plates, cups,mugs, wine opener, paper plates, spices,etc..We have two children (8 and 5) and they share the one bedroom and we stay in the master. The cabin comes with a screened porch which is my favorite parts because it is great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and looking towards the lake. The house is on top of the hill so get a great view of the trees, lake, mountains. We have enjoyed many dinners BBQ'ing on the side deck which have saved us tons of money not having to eat out every night. My children and husband love to spend time on the Adirondack chairs by the fire pit. It is actually a great spot to watch the fireworks every thursday night. Helen is great and my kids always know to go look for the marshmellows and chocolate to make smores which she leaves for the guests each time. During any rainy days we all sprawled out on the pull out couch and watched movies or played games that she has. There are tons a books for some quiet time.
Coming from the city I feel a sense of ease coming to the house. I even dont mind cooking in the kitchen. It is a cute kitchen with widows looking out to the deck, a breakfast bar for the kids to watch and help mommy cook and even a dinning set where we can have family dinners.
The location of the cabin cannot be beat. You are 5 blocks from the main strip of Canada street yet far enough up the hill that you do feel all the commotion. Your are in walking distance to food and shops and arcades and a grocery store. There is a Walmart 10 min away where we go the first day and stock up on what we need. Some of the activities we like are: the beach, great escape, tubing in the lake, hike up prospect mountain, shopping at the outlets, renting a boat, bowling, minigolf, This is truly home away from home. Summer 2014 here we come
