NOT AS ADVERTISED- BUYER BEWARE!
We rented this place in large part based on the description, “This property offers a quiet relaxing atmosphere”, and “A private dock is also provided for your pleasure.”
Unfortunately, we were awoken before 9am the first morning of our stay by five very loud children running around and playing in the back yard of the property, and playing on, jumping off, and fishing from, the “private dock”. This continued the entire day, and the next day.
We had expected to be able to sit in the back yard and enjoy the view while reading and relaxing, but when we tried, we were effectively accosted by the children who would not stop running up to us and “greeting” us with friendly but not very welcome “Hi!, who are you!?” ,and “What are you dooing!?” The more we tried to politely ignore them, the more insistent they became that we give them attention. Eventually we gave up and needed to go inside on that beautiful summer day.
I hoped to swim, fish, and get some sun on the dock, but had no intention of de facto babysitting five unsupervised children fishing from, jumping off of and swimming directly next to and all around the same “private” dock. Bear in mind, we like children, raised our own, and there was absolutely nothing wrong with their behavior.
I contacted the owners with our concerns and astonishingly received a response that, “It’s a shared dock for the two houses….”, along with an offer to contact the parents, the point of which was lost on me as it was apparently their dock too and I certainly did not want an issue with our neighbors for three days.
Seeing as “shared” and “private” are opposites, the description was written to intentionally mislead prospective renters. If you actually want a quiet relaxing atmosphere and your own dock to use, do not rent here!
People checked in after you with the same family with kids and enjoyed themselves. When you first reached out to us we did reply to you as well as asked the parent to monitor their kids better. In NY state quiet time is 11pm to 7am. As for the dock it is not a public dock it is a private dock for the two houses owned buy the same homeowners. The other property ID is 3005250 and you will see says private dock as well. The other people after you said the kids weren’t running through the yard and enjoyed the lake in summer as kids will do. Sorry you did not enjoy your stay.
Not what was expected
The pictures provided are done just right so you do not see the problems with the unit as well as they are older than current state of unit. First off, it is a mobile trailer and not an actual house. There are holes in the walls, drip marks on walls, dead bugs on the sills, live bugs inside, fridge bottom shelf is broken, the stove top stays warm all the time, the pictures of backyard is of the neighbors and the "private dock" is a plastic Lego walkway halfway under water. There was visible dirt on the counters and sinks, the beds had sand and pebbles in them. Overall, I would not recommend this unit at all.
Scenic view. Lovely location.
Cozy spot close enough to town. Far enough away for the cottage feel. My family loved it we will likely stay here again.
We were able to bring our dogs and found it comfortable for all of us. We enjoyed the closeness to the lake and went out paddling a couple times.
Clean and had all we needed for cooking, etc.
Older trailer on the water that needs some TLC
This property is on the lake and sadly we had poor weather to be able to enjoy the lakeside. Inside is a never upgraded 1960's trailer that is clean, but worn. Lots of stains that could not be removed from wallpaper, walls, sinks. Good for a family that wanted a "Lake outdoor theme."
The leather couch was torn and the landlord came early one morning to apologize--was quite odd and uncertain why he came by at that time as we did not make any comments anywhere.
We liked having the bedrooms on opposite ends of the trailer as hubby snores and then daughter does not sleep. Had enough room between to muffle the sound.
Had lots of kitchen items, but appeared to be leftovers from other settings as had no cereal bowls, but many cups and plates.
The owner gave us a wrong address and we arrived quite late in the evening. Address was to another long term lease that the owner had and luckily the lights were on and when we approached that house, we could see someone inside sleeping on the couch.
We re-looked at the website and were able to find the correct home from the map. Picture was for the home next to the trailer--but we knew that the rental was a single story home. The owners may want to update the website to reflect this home rather than the larger one next door as confusing.
Owners were responsive and caring.
Nice location on lake saratoga caught some fish
Had a good time fishing and touring the lake. Caught some fish and enjoyed having the for dinner. House trailer was big enough for the four of us. Went to Saratoga horse track and enjoyed visiting one of the premier tracks on the east coast. The house was supplied well and we enjoyed our stay there and I would recommend it .
