We would definitely stay here again, without a doubt one of the best cabins we've rented and most courteous owners. Thanks for everything, it was a fantastic weekend. Rob 'Thank you so very much, Melissa, for letting us stay in your lovely and comfortable home! Everything was wonderful and we appreciate all your well-thought-out and detailed comforts of home! We great enjoyed the private hiking trail, too. Thank you again!' LOCATION Situated 6 miles north of Lake George Village, 4 miles south of Bolton Landing, and just 200 feet off Lake Shore Drive, Woodland House boasts 49 acres of wooded land out back. Views from the house are of native Adirondack trees and rock ledges, with no other houses visible on any side. CAPACITY The house contains four bedrooms and four full baths and is arranged and furnished for a party of eight or up to eleven people. Except in the summer, rates are computed according to the size of the group, from two to eleven, and we welcome the small group, too. WIRELESS INTERNET CONNECTION A reliable wired or wireless Internet connection is available in the house at no extra charge. PETS Your pet is allowed to accompany you on your vacation provided permission is obtained ahead of time. A pet fee of $85 for a week or $50 for a weekend will be charged. The town of Bolton does have a leash law, so a dog must be leashed whenever it leaves the property. Your dog is given a clean bed, too. PING-PONG The screened porch sports a regulation size Ping-Pong table for use by our guests. Paddles and balls are provided. HIKING TRAIL A private hiking trail around the 49 acres of woodlands out back guides you along a walk of about 1.4 miles (one way) through beautiful forested land with tall cliffs, rock ledges, a stream within an amazing 100-foot-deep gorge, sightings of the lake through the trees, and at the trail's end magnificent views of the lake from the Narrows and Tongue Mountain to all of Long, Canoe, and Speaker Heck islands, French Mountain, Cleverdale, and mountains in Vermont and Massachusetts. You may need hiking boots for this walk. CONSERVATION EASEMENT ON THE PROPERTY It will interest any nature lovers to know that there is now a conservation easement placed on the property. The easement will ensure that the property will be preserved in its natural state in perpetuity. As for our RENTAL RATES, though many of them are given on this listing, please keep in mind that with so large a house and with rates varying greatly from season to season and according to the size of the group, it isn't possible to show them all accurately here, or in a format that is easy to follow. Offering rates for smaller groups gives a chance for more people to enjoy this lovely house and gives us a chance to rent it more often throughout the year. A personal quote from me is the only one I can guarantee. Please feel free to call or e-mail. I do answer promptly. RENTAL AGREEMENT We also have our own rental agreement and refund policy which are difficult to show here. Refunds for cancelation: If you must cancel a reservation we will work very hard to find a replacement family. When we find one, we will return to you either what you paid or the new family pays. If you are concerned that you might have to cancel, we suggest you look into travelers insurance. Request a copy of the Notes for Guests. WEEKLY RATES JUNE 2 TO JUNE 23. For up to ten people, including babies and children, $1,700 per week plus $100 for each additional person. Rented from Sunday to Sunday. WEEKLY RATES JUNE 23 TO SEPTEMBER 1 For up to ten people, including babies and children, $2,400 per week plus $100 weekly for an additional person. Rented from Sunday to Sunday. Regular Rates September Through May-- Group 3-night 3 nights Additional Full size weekend midweek night week 1-2 $395 $350 $100 $850 2-4 $550 $490 $130 $1,040 5-6 $720 $580 $155 $1,280 7-8 $850 $680 $180 $1,500 9-10 $950 $850 $200 $1,700 September and October rates: Minimum 6-person rate.

CALL OR E-MAIL FOR AN ADDRESS TO OUR PRIMARY AD ON THE WEB AND ACCURATE INFORMATION ABOUT PRICING, BOOKING AND REFUND POLICIES, AND A FLOOR PLAN OF THE HOUSE. THE FORMAT OF THIS SITE DOESN'T ALLOW FOR OUR POLICIES TO BE ACCURATELY EXPLAINED. SWIMMING AND BOATING There are two public beaches four miles to the north in Bolton Landing and another two in the Village of Lake George. There are several marinas on Lakes Shore Drive where guests may rent a boat. All are within a 10-minute drive. THE HOUSE ITSELF HAS NO LAKE FRONTAGE. We supply several beach chairs for your use at the beach. SKIING Skiers may choose Gore Mountain, 28 miles from the house, or West Mountain, 18 miles distant. If you aren't skiing every day of your stay, the Lake George region offers many other outdoor activities and good shopping opportunities. THE HOUSE Constructed during the winter of 2001, Woodland House (formerly called Lake George House) contains two levels of living area and provides an unusual degree of privacy for residents. An oil furnace provides central heat, and the house is centrally air conditioned. A private well supplies tap water. Rooms are large, their walls paneled with knotty pine, and the floors made of oak or ceramic tile. Doors are oak as well. Ceilings are high, windows large, and decorations sparse, lending an atmosphere of space and relaxation. Every room looks out over a natural setting of forest and mountains. The main room is large enough for gatherings of the entire group. It contains a large gas-fired woodstove, the living, dining, and kitchen areas, and a table that seats eight or even ten comfortably. A spare table is available to allow seating for eleven. Here, too, are one of the two TV's (with cable), the CD and DVD players, the radio, and an assortment of books, games, and puzzles for the guests' entertainment. A second TV and a DVD player are in the lower bedroom where the futon sofa is. The living room opens out onto a large screened porch furnished with a Ping-Pong table and a wrought iron sofa, table, and comfortable chairs. Plexiglas panels to cover the screening in spring and fall extend the time the porch is comfortable for use. The kitchen is equipped with a four-burner electric stove with oven, a refrigerator, and a dishwasher, as well as two coffee makers, an Oster blender, a hand mixer, and electric, and electric fry pan, and a microwave oven. Pots and pans are abundant; silverware and dinnerware will accommodate a group of ten. A full-size pantry provides generous space for kitchen equipment and your groceries. The two bedrooms upstairs (which is the main level) are the same size with a queen-size bed, a full bath, and a walk-in closet in each. The third and fourth bedrooms are on the lower level. Each of those contains two single beds, which can be made up as a king. The larger of the two also has a futon sofa and a TV and DVD player. Its bathroom is on the upper level. The smaller twin-or-king room also has a cot, its own bathroom with large fiberglass shower, and a coaxial cable if you want to bring your own small TV. Both have walk-in closets. A highchair, a booster seat, a set of baby gates, and a standard crib (the crib for a $25 fee) are available for small children. On the lower level are a standard washer and dryer, an iron and ironing board, and a counter for folding. In the laundry room is also the recycling station, with bins for sorting your bottles, cans, and recyclable paper. Three baths have a shower and tub combination and counter space around the basin. The fourth bathroom has a large fiberglass shower. ALL BED LINENS ARE FURNISHED as are a bath towel and wash cloth for each guest (plus a lot of spares), bath mats, and dish towels. We do not provide beach towels. THE GROUNDS The grounds are heavily wooded and contain a small stream, an outcropping of rock ledges, and many species of native trees, including white pine, beech, hemlock, oak, maple, birch, and aspen. They provide shade, privacy, and natural beauty to the grounds. A modern gas grill with a spare canister of propane is provided for outdoor cooking. A set of swings including a baby swing is also available outside the screened porch. A fire pit is available for a small camp fire unless dry weather conditions make an outdoor fire hazardous. If a power outage occurs during your stay, a 6,800-watt GENERATOR will be provided on part-time or full-time basis to supply the house with use of the furnace, water, septic system, refrigeration, and a number of electrical outlets. PAYMENT POLICIES A deposit of one half the rental rate is required when a reservation is made, with the balance and the security deposit due 60 days before arrival. A refundable security deposit of $100 to $300 is required, the rate depending on the length of rental and the number of people in the party. This sum will be refunded in full provided no damage has been done, instructions for preparing the house for check-out are followed, trash and recyclables are managed properly, and the house is vacated by checkout time. Check-in time is 3:00 P.M. of the first day rented. Check-out time is 10:00 A.M. of the last day. Beds: 2 king beds, 2 queen beds, 5 twin Beds, 1 futon sofa that can become a double bed, and 1 standard crib (for a $25 fee). Actually, to clarify, the two sets of twins can be MADE into king beds.
