You can have it all with this peaceful riverfront getaway.

Located on the scenic Hudson River, with private dockage for boating

private wooded campground, accessible only by private road or boat,

you can enjoy a peaceful getaway from the hustle and bustle of the

rest of the world. If you would rather get into the action, then

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our vacation and we're missing it already!!

This cozy, immaculate house has been the perfect retreat for the past 2 years. Our family of five (including 2 teens and a tween) all LOVE it here. You can stay busy swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, going for walks or just relax by the water enjoying peace and quiet. Lake George activities are only a short drive away and groceries/extras can easily be found in town to stock the fridge.

Mike was always available for questions and did everything to ensure a wonderful stay! I highly recommend if you're looking for an Adirondack getaway...this house will certainly make you smile:) Thank you Mike and Grace for sharing your home!!

Excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations I have ever had!! It was so peaceful and relaxing. While the house is located on the boundary of a campground, you feel totally secluded. Waking up in the morning to fog on the lake and birds chirping is incredible!! You can not get this if you stay in a hotel or condo. I highly recommend this home. Extremely clean and well kept. We even had a visit from the housekeeper who asked if there was anything that we needed!!! I would go back in a heartbeat!!! Thank you Mike and grace for a wonderful stay.

The most relaxing vacation so far

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, had everything you would need for the weekend. Grocery stores were close by. But the view of the river was the most amazing part of this house, it was breathtaking. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners of the house which I loved, they were the most friendly people you could meet. We were a group of two couples in our early twenties and we enjoyed it very much. There were canoes that we took out on the river, it was great fun and gave us a good workout haha.

* Note to the owners - it would have been great if you had an additional price for renting your boat, we would have loved it :)

Thank you for having us, we'll be back!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that these guests had such a wonderful time at our "summer house" (as have so many others). The views are spectacular, the neighborhood peaceful and secluded (but certainly not remote) - just a fantastic place to get away and unwind. It is our pleasure to give that 'home away from home' feel to our guests. While we would love to make a power boat rental available as an option, that just is not practical for us due to insurance and liability issues. However, we do welcome any of our guests to bring their own power boat (or other watercraft) they might own or have access to and tie up at our bulkhead at no additional charge. For all others, there are the canoe and two kayaks included in the rental to enjoy!

Great Stay on the River

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this location on Memorial Day weekend. Despite it being a busy Holiday weekend, the property location was quiet and relaxing. The river was perfect and we enjoyed the kayak/ canoe provided. Got in some good fishing within relatively close proximity to the dock. I would recommend morning and evening paddling on the river. It is very calm (almost like a lake) and not as busy with power boats/ jet skis.

House was clean upon arrival and had everything we needed for our stay. Owners provided helpful info prior to our arrival and gave some good tips for local attractions, shops, and food. We didn't spend much time inside as the weather was awesome during our stay.

For a day trip, we headed up to Black mountain on the eastern shore of Lake George. It was about an hour drive north, but worth the trip. Nice hike that we were able to make with our dog. Great views of the lake at the top. There are plenty of other things close by. Saratoga was only about 15 miles south and made for another great day trip.

All in all a great trip

Recommended to all.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 days staying at this house. We were lucky to have great weather and were able to fully take advantage of just about everything this house had to offer.

When we arrived, we found the house to be in immaculate condition, the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and other wares necessary to cook meals. The two bedrooms upstairs were of decent size and the beds were comfortable. Downstairs living room offered enough space for us. Outside fire pit and BBQ area was great, as we spent a lot of time sitting in front of the fire during the evenings.

During our stay there were a couple of minor issues which were handled and corrected promptly by owner Michael, who is very responsive and courteous.

One word of caution; there is no fence that separates the upper "yard/fire pit" area from the river, so if you have small children with you, you need to be constantly mindful of them so they do not run down the embankment and into the river.

Overall we had a great time at this Old River Road house and I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

Loved the River!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with a few excursions to Lake George but mostly we relaxed, visited with family and enjoyed our morning coffee watching the river!

The house was clean and as presented, plenty of room to spread out. My elderly mother slept in the back room and had her quiet and privacy. The stairs up to the bedrooms are a little steep, but bedrooms are good size with comfy beds. We did use the AC on fan setting. One of the bedroom windows was missing a screen or we would have had all the windows open.

The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals, and we used the grill several times.

The linen service worked well for us..only wished we had more blankets, we got sheets for 6 beds but 4 blankets. It did state that in rental agreement, I just didn't see it!

The stone patio was great for sitting out and there are plenty of chairs. My mother had to be careful with her footing though because some stones are uneven.

The river was a little cold but we did swim everyday. There is no walk in access, so that might be a concern for young children.

We used the fire pit everynight, and being in a campground made us feel like we were "glamping"..got the campground feel but a house the stay in!

We loved walked along River Road. Everyone was friendly.

We had pizza from Roccos in Lake Luzerne..very good, and Tops was good for what ever else we needed.

Mike was great to send directions and helpful info..esp liked seeing a picture of them..and am so glad they choose to share there piece of heaven with us!

Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing vacation!
