Recently renovated hillside farmhouse less than 1.5mi from Huletts Landing on Lake George. Minutes from boating, swimming, golf, skiing, hiking and other Adirondack activities. The Black Mountain trailhead is a 5min drive from the house and is your gateway to many miles of beautiful hiking trails.
Full kitchen with modern appliances and a full suite of cooking equipment and automatic dishwasher. You may use and dishes, pots, pans, or food and spices in the kitchen. A clothes washer and dryer are also available in the basement. A recently installed wood burning wood stove is a functional delight in the spring, fall and winter.
Four bedrooms have one queen-sized bed each. The guest loft has two full-sized beds.
The house has two full bathrooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor.
In terms of the local area, the house is located about halfway up the EAST side of Lake George in a heavily forested part of the Adirondacks.. Killington and West Mountain are ski options less than an hour away, as are about 5 golf courses, and numerous hiking and horsebacking riding trails. Lake George Village and its amusement parks are about 40 minutes away.
If you continue down Route 6 past the house about 1 mile, you will reach the eastern shore of Lake George, which I advise you to check out. There is a marina with a small store, gas pumps, and boat rentals., some public beach areas, a local bar called the Casino and a 9-hole golf course. If you would like to eat out, Whitehall, NY (15 minutes) and Fairhaven, VT (20 minutes) are the closest options. I would recommend stocking up on food before you come to the house as the closest full-service supermarket is in Fairhaven, VT, with smaller groceries in Whitehall, NY. You are welcome to use all kitchen utensils as well as all foods and spices that are in our kitchen.

The house is very cozy and comfortable. Has a really nice home feeling to it. We had a great time staying here. The swing outside was so much fun! The little bench set up outside the house, made out of wood, was amazing and very pretty! The house had everything we needed. My favorite part was the little porch in front of the house, with the chairs, facing the road. So pretty!
This house was an absolute dream--it's exactly as pictured (if not more wonderful!). We were a 13 person group (one person slept on the couch), and even at that size, the house didn't feel crowded at all. We spent Memorial Day weekend sunbathing in the gorgeous backyard which is enormous and then made our way down to the lake, which is a two-minute drive (you can definitely walk/run and it's about 15 minutes away, but the way back is up a hill and kind of a workout). You can rent kayaks on the lake as well and have them for the whole day. My friends even kayaked out to a really charming little island and spent a few hours sunbathing there and swimming. The firepit is also AMAZING--we made smores, sang songs and watched the stars. Overall, this was truly an amazing experience. Ray even called us from his vacation in Miami to check in, which was so sweet. He's super responsive, gracious and kind. PLUS, for all you city slickers that don't want to disconnect, don't despair--the house is equipped with wifi unlike some houses and has an enormous TV that's perfect to watch movies on after a hard day of play.
Also, sidenote! On our way back we drove through downtown Lake George which is a 15 - 20 minute drive and it was SUPER CUTE. I think it's situated on a different part of the lake so you can see that as well. If you have time, would suggest checking it out. We really wish we had more time to explore...there was definitely tons to do!
Ray offered a great house up in lake george. the quietness it brings was just what we were looking for.
We had a wonderful weekend at the Lake George house. Plenty of space, plenty of land outside, adorned with a fire pit and rustic barns, was a great experience!
Had a great time at Raymond's farmhouse with 6 other friends. The fire pit outside made for a memorable evening experience. We especially enjoyed star gazing the millions of stars at night and making delicious s'mores.
We very much enjoyed our stay in Ray's home. The house is spacious and well-appointed, with comfy beds and amenities to make even a large group feel right at home. Ray was very communicative leading up to our stay - a great host.
Ray's house was exactly as billed. We had a great, stress-free stay. Everything well-prepared and organized by the owner. He was prompt, professional, and comprehensive in discussions leading up to the rental. He also made himself completely available for any last-minute issues, but none arose due to good preparation. I would gladly recommend him to other airbnb users. Also, great spot.
My wife Mary and I have two homes, one in Miami beach, FL and one in Adirondack Park on Lake George in upstate New York. We frequently rent these homes, both of which are lovely and in nice, scenic locations.
