vacation rental description

Welcome to Grant Island com
Nestled into the South East shore bay of Brantingham lake lies the 2
acre Grant Island. Home to two full size cottages Grant Island is a
perfect getaway from it all. Enjoy the quiet and pristine waterfront
environment on a private island all the while having access to the
outside world thru, phone with unlimited long distance, Wifi internet,
complete computer setup, premium cable television on large screen tv.
Cottage has brick fireplace, fully stocked kitchen with stove/oven, 4
semi private bedrooms, screened in porch, extra large propane grill,
hammock, picnic table and a rustic wood interior.
Being on a Island makes this the perfect escape for dog owners who
love to let their dogs roam free and play.
Available for weekly or extended period rentals is the cottage on the
West side of the Island. The East side cottage is home to the owner
and manager of the property. Complete Island rental packages are
available by special request.
The Island cottage is on Grant Island which sits nicely in the middle
of Brantingham Lake. Brantingham Lake has a 15 mile circumference
and is located 45 minutes north of Utica via rt 12. Located 2 hrs from
Albany and 4.5 - 5.5 hrs from NYC depending on traffic.
On weekends the lake is lively with plenty of boating and water sports
and on weekdays it is usually very quiet and peaceful.
The island is approximately 2 acres and has 2 cottages. We rent both
cottages at special request but normally rent only one. The other
cottage is for management. There is usually only one other person on
the island to make sure that things are running smoothly, to help you
with anything and to answer any questions you may have.
Management has two small dogs on the island whose pictures are on the
site. Both are very friendly and lovable but if you prefer not to see
them they are kept away.
These cottages are located in the Adirondack park about 45 minutes
north of Utica NY.

traveler reviews for this brantingham lake cottage rental

Good & Bad

Review submitted: August 3, 2012   Date of arrival: June 23, 2012

What a big disappointment. The island and water were great, the cottage nice. Here’s where it went wrong. Their top amenity is a 25hp pontoon boat free for you to use for travel to and from shore and recreation. The pontoon barely ran, stalled constantly. After a few days of frustration and disappointment we asked the owner to borrow their boat so we could explore the island. The boats should have been switched at the beginning of the trip. Instead of giving us a full tank of gas, which they charge you for refills she only added about ½ a tank. Coming back from picking up hot take-out we ran out of gas in the middle of the lake. On top of that, not all burners on the grill worked, there was no kayak or canoe and the rowboat that we did have to use had a hole in the bottom. There was no hammock, most of the amenities stated were missing or not working. Within a few hours of arriving my 13 year old ripped a 3” gash in the bottom of his foot from an errant nail on the floating raft. The nail should have been hammered down the beginning of the season! We paid a damage and cleaning deposit. They kept over 70% of the cleaning deposit stating the place was okay. We left the place in better condition than we found it. I swept up a ton of dog hair that didn’t belong to my dogs, cleaned marshmellows out of the fireplace, found half eaten Stromboli in the oven etc. They should be giving us a refund not withhold our cleaning fee. Needless to say we won’t be going back!
