Here is a gorgeous 20-year-old cottage located on 86 feet of private

shoreline on Galway Lake. Galway Lake is a privately owned 550-acre

lake with seven miles of shoreline located in western Saratoga

County in the town of Galway. The cottage is set in a cove on the

southern edge of Galway Lake in Maywood Grove with a beautiful view

of the northern hills. A small stream borders the side of the

property and functions during and after rainstorms. The site is

located in a rural grove off a dead-end road, which ensures a

private and quiet retreat. It's also minutes to important places.

The Saratoga Race Track and Saratoga Performing Arts Center are only

15 minutes away. Two golf courses are five minutes and fabulous

restaurants are minutes away. Large retailers are only 10 minutes

away. Numerous attractions are in the surrounding area. The cottage

is located 15 minutes from exit 26 of the New York State Thruway and

20 minutes from exit 12 of the Adirondack Northway.

This beautiful A-frame is located on a three-acre sloping lot with

plenty of parking. The property has a driveway leading to the entry

walkway. There are stone paths, gardens, and lighting in the

beautifully landscaped yard. There is a private 16-foot dock with a

sandy beach area. The cottage is not furnished with boats, however

you may bring your own boats, as long as there are no gasoline

engines. Trolling motors are permitted. Rowboats, kayaks, canoes,

and sailboats are permitted on Galway Lake. There is a shed on the

property for easy storage. A gas grill, patio table, and chairs are

provided

The cottage has one large bedroom on the first floor with a double

bed and a loft upstairs with two single beds. The sofa pulls out

into a large bed. The cottage is fully furnished, and linens are

provided. There is a fully functioning kitchen with a full size

refrigerator and electric stove. A coffee maker, microwave, and

toaster are provided. There is a large living room and a very large

dining area with a large table and storage closet. There is a

separate shower room adjacent to the dining room. The interior is

composed of knotty pine walls and ceilings. There are oversized

windows in the front with a patio door leading to the oversized

deck, overlooking the lake. Two ceiling fans keep the cottage cool

on those humid days.

The cottage comes with garbage service, basic cable, and local

telephone service. Rental periods are desribed in the rental rates.

Quiet, beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Galway - the lake is beautiful and quiet - there are no gas motors allowed, so sailboats, canoes and kayaks are the order of the day. We spent a lot of time kayaking, bird watching and sitting on the large deck enjoying the peace and the view. The water is clear, although this year there are a lot of weeds in the water, which wouldn't be ideal for swimming near the shore. This is a well constructed nicely kept cottage with comfortable furniture that you won't worry about the kids hurting. Cable tv and secure wireless network worked great; our ATT phones had intermittent reception, but there is a land line you can use for local calls.

The kitchen (or more accurately, kitchenette) has a new toaster, coffee maker and a small microwave. The refrigerator is full sized and there is a 4 burner stove top; no oven. Propane gas grill in the yard. Clean sheets provided, no towels. The original A-frame had only a sink and toilet, but there's a stall shower in the newer part of the cottage. The cottage has running water but the water is out of the lake and not drinkable. The landlord will provide two large containers of drinking water and there is a public tap nearby for additional water. There's a local farmers market on Fridays and plenty of nearby farm stands for fresh produce, eggs and maple syrup.

The site is quite steep, but we were able to walk my 90 year old father-in-law down - would not be suitable for anyone with impaired mobility. This was a beautiful place to be - no bright lights but a lovely quiet retreat. Saratoga is 15 minutes away if you'd like more excitement!

Location

From the Owner

This property is directly on the water, yet offers a private setting. As you drive off the main road into Maywood Grove, you are greeted by private roads and trails that lead to the cottage. At the cottage, you have views of the entire lake and not of your neighbors. We are secluded, but close to everything and Saratoga.
