Where you’ll be

Broadalbin, New York, United States

The immediate local area in and around Broadalbin, Mayfield, and Northville are quiet and quaint. There are many small mom-and-pop shops and restaurants to explore scattered throughout the area.

The Great Sacandaga Lake itself is a hidden gem at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. It covers 42 square miles and is about 29 miles long and 5 miles wide. It is simply wonderful for all sorts of water sports like fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and sailing during the summer, and for ice fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and skiing in the winter!

If you like to eat out, there are a number of small local places and some options for great lakefront dining. Or, you can stay in and use the gas grill or fully equipped kitchen to prepare your own meals and have your own private lakefront dining experience on the large deck or down on the 50' of private beach overlooking Sand Island.

If golf is on your agenda, there are a couple of small public golf courses within a 15-20 minute drive, and then there is the award winning Saratoga National Golf Club ( and the Saratoga Spa State Park Golf Course ( just 22 miles away in Saratoga Springs.

Saratoga also offers the famous Saratoga Raceway (the major 2018 horse racing season runs from July 20th - Sept 3rd) as well as a huge variety of concerts and performances at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) and other local theaters. Downtown Saratoga also has a great many places to shop and eat as well.

My wife Paula and I started our Airbnb hosting journey so we could buy our dream Lake House in the Adirondack Mountains near my hometown in upstate New York. We looked around for many years and in the spring of 2018 our dream home on the Great Sacandaga Lake - affectionately named Island View - was finally born! Our Airbnb experience with Island View has been so much fun that we ultimately decided to establish a similar gathering place in Florida to have a fun, comfortable house to "meet in the middle" with Paula's family and friends visiting from Brazil. So now we are delighted to be hosting families and groups of friends at the Dolphin Villa near Orlando, FL as well ! The ISLAND VIEW story: Our family has had a place on the Great Sacandaga Lake since my grandfather and his brothers bought land here in the 1940's and it is our go-to family gathering place! As you will discover when you stay at Island View, this is a very special place to relax, have fun, and unwind. The DOLPHIN VILLA story: In talking with a friend who owns and hosts his own home near Orlando, we quickly realized that a pool home in Orlando, Florida would be a great place to "meet in the middle" with Paula's family and friends visiting from Brazil. We searched and searched and finally found the Dolphin Villa! It is the perfect family gathering place for us in Florida. Be sure to check it out here - the Dolphin Villa just may be the perfect place for you too! In short: We simply love being able to share both Island View and the Dolphin Villa with other families! It is a privilege to be a small part of creating the lifelong memories that make spending time with family and friends so precious.
