Lake Vacation with Family
The house accommodated my family of 10. It was located near everything. The kitchen and big table in eating area was very accommodating. The appliances were rather new and very serviceable. Outside in back was a great Weber grill and a fire pit that we used and enjoyed. The house was stocked with linens and towels., beach chairs etc. the only things needed were food and personal items. There were rags instead of paper towels. The cable did not work. My major complaint was the condition of the sitting room furniture. It needed a major cleaning or replacement. The house is old and filled with things and thus dusty. As I am allergic to dust mites, I suffered a respiratory infection. With a few adjustments, the house was terrific for a family or group of friends.
house as advertised is 130 years old in the country on an acre of land there is pollen and dust . I use dish towels instead of paper towels for the environment not rags I left at 20 towels ,in drawers
the staff run a vacuum that kills viruses , and dust mites over sofas and mattresses that I bought on QVC just for this house I am sorry she was so allergic
Our stay was very enjoyable . Nice outdoor area roofer indoors.
This was our 1st time in Lake George area & this property was just outside. The trolley stop was less than a 1/4 mile from the property. Also close to Bolton Landing.
Great location, just outside of town. Trolly close by. House was plenty big and VERY clean.
We stayed with extended family and had plenty of room. The kitchen had plenty of utensils and all our cooking needs. The grilling and fire pit area were spacious and comfortable. The road was nice and quiet and had plenty of room for the kids to play. The beach was private. This was our first visit to Lake George, and we hope to visit again. This property met all our needs. Thank you Kathy for sharing your house!
Large house, great location
House was much larger than expected and had everything we needed for the week. Backyard and grill were perfect for entertaining. House located conveniently in between Lake George Village and Bolton Landing
Bearly Inn met our expections. Great stay.
Our stay at the Bearly Inn was from 7/21-7/28. This was our first time renting a house while on vacation in the Lake George area. There were 6 in our party most of the time with an additional 2 on the weekends. To start, the house was ready as advertised at 4pm on 7/21. The house more than met our expectations and was in line with the description provided in the Home Away ad. With the exception of some of the bushes/plants out front needing some trimming , the property is well maintained. The location of the house was on a quiet street approximately 200 yards off Route 9N (the non-lake side of 9N)which is approx. 3 miles north of Lake George Village and approx. 7 miles south of Bolton landing. There are deli's within easy reach(north or south on 9N) if you need to pick up some food/snacks/etc.... For bigger needs, there are grocery stores in LG Village (Price Chopper) and Bolton Landing (TOPS). Each bedroom and the living room have a window air conditioner. The weather was warm and humid the week we were there and the A/C's did a good job of keeping the entire house cool and 'dry'. Besides the regular bedroom fixtures/furniture, each room also had its own TV (basic Cable stations) and ceiling fan . The Kitchen and dining areas were more than adequate and contained all that is needed to put together a meal for 8. Things get tight for groups larger than that. The living room can handle 6 or 7 adults comfortably. The two bathrooms were in excellent shape and contained both a shower and tub.. The outside patio area was spacious with a propane grill at your disposal along with enough tables/chairs to handle a large group.. Wi-Fi worked well the entire week. Note that the house is 2 stories with 1 bedroom on the 1st floor and the other bedrooms located on the second floor. If someone has issues navigating stairs, this may not be the house for them unless they stay on the first floor. We did not use the beach access near the house so I can not comment on that. We also found the owner to be responsive to our questions. All in all, my family had a great time in the Lake George area and found the Bearly Inn to be an excellent choice. We will definitely consider a stay at the Bearly Inn if we should visit the Lake George area again in the future.
