Lake George 25 minutes & Saratoga 40 mins away. Come and hike, swim, canoe, relax and play. This 90 year old cottage has been totally redone to accommodate year-round enjoyment. The property includes 2 bedrooms, a loft that sleeps two, 1 1/2 baths, several spaces for reading, a screened porch and an open deck. Cook your own meals in the new kitchen or travel 3 minutes to the Friends Lake Inn where you can eat an elegant meal in the restaurant or a casual one in the bar area. We ask that prospective renters please complete the identity verification so that we understand that you are a real person and know who you are. Thank you! You'll have access to the home, the yard, the beach and the dock and the swimming area. Please note that the beach does not have a lifeguard and you swim at your own risk. You can use the canoe, as well as board games. Bring a book- you'll enjoy the sound of the loons and the quiet of the breeze blowing through pines. There is internet access (if you must) and a DVD player with TV (and full home stereo system). Cookout on the deck with the grill if you'd like. Because the lake has not been contaminated with invasive species, we do not allow boat access with boats used outside this lake without special permission (it's complicated) and cleaning of the boat by an authorized cleaning service. You will not have access to the garage and we ask that you not use the basement as it has some tools and personal items there. ALSO, FOR SAFETY REASONS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE FIREPLACE. Guests are free to use the property in peace and quiet. We may stop in to say hello just to make sure you're having a great stay. Friends Lake is an all-natural 3 mile lake situated in the southern Adirondacks. The lake has no invasive species and is home to many native species of both vegetation and fish. The community is quiet, friendly and tight-knit. Nearby Chestertown- only 10 minutes via auto- has everything a family needs: post office, grocery store, farmer's market, liquor store, library, hardware store, pizzeria, olde fashioned ice cream shop and a gas station. There are plenty of places to park. Please don't park in the driveway (it is shared with other homes), but rather park in front of the garage. Also, down the driveway to the lake, there is a larger parking area that you are free to use. Getting around: on car, swim or walking. Please note that the property has a hot tub that does not function- so it wasn't included in the listing. Also, we currently do not allow use of the fireplace for safety purposes. Finally- renters agree when booking to use AT YOUR OWN RISK the premises, the beach, and the canoe. Renters also note that there is no lifeguard at the beach and as such swim at their own risk. Thank you. Please: No smoking on the premises. Thank you. Guests are expected to live by the Golden Rule. The community is family-oriented so parties, late-nite revelry and disorderly conduct are not within the bounds of use for this property. More

Easy as can be. Use Interstate 87 to Warrensburgh, NY - Exit 23. Turn to Rte 9 (left if coming North) and take a right onto Rte 9. Go through the village of Warrensburgh, and continue for 5 or so miles until you see a sign 'Town of Chester.' Take the next left onto Stock Farm Road; go to the end. Turn left, see the house about 1/10th mile on the right. Please park across the driveway from the home. And enjoy your stay!
