The water toys, boats, life jackets, and very comfortable beds!

While I would say we were disappointed w the home we rented, we still enjoyed the week away. The home was not as expected and listed. There were several issues. To start it was supposed to have window ACs and did not have even one. The managing company did get us permission to purchase and get reimbursed for 2 units. One our vacation time we shopped and installed the units. Also the outdoor grill did not work but again the managing company stepped up and brought us a
new one. The washing machine works but needs to be manually moved along which means you need to be present while doing wash. While there appears to be outside water access we could not locate how to turn it on which makes cleaning coolers, floats etc very difficult. Also, while the home lists that it can sleep 17 it is not advisable. Trundle beds are not private and overcrowding would be an issue. In fact, we rented w the intention that it housed 17, and the home later rescued that to 14 which would still be a stretch.
The pictures online are deceiving at best....rooms appear much bigger than they actually are.

All the above meant constant contact w the managing company Vacasa which was very responsive once we connected w Meagan. Meagan was wonderful in working the issues we had and keeping us updated as needed. I, somehow doubt, that we would not have gotten the responses we did had we not connected w Meagan. In my view, Meagan went above and beyond to ensure our issues were addressed. While Vacasa was able to get us a refund to some degree and a discount on a future rental, I can say w certainty that we not rent the same home but would consider another home thru Vacasa.

Hope this is hopeful to the next renters.
Manager response:
Hello, thank you for your review. We apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We appreciate your feedback as it allows us to work directly with the homeowner to improve for future renters. With your detailed suggestions and noted concerns, the homeowner has worked diligently to update many aspects of this home that negatively impacted your stay. There are now two window units available for the few days each summer that may impact our guests. The grill has been replaced with a new unit and additional propane tanks are available as needed. The washing machine and dryer have been upgraded to a new stacking high-efficiency unit in the new laundry closet. The outside water spigot has been turned on so that future guests may rinse off their belongings. We have updated the listing to indicate the maximum occupancy for this home is now 14 guests, and all mattresses have been updated with brand new in all bedrooms, with upgraded bedroom sets. Additionally, the homeowner has taken the time to improve and update: the lakefront lower deck and added new Adirondack chairs, a tiki bar, pool table, 2 kayaks, corn hole game, hammock, 2nd fridge, brochure stand, hi-speed wifi, string lighting along walkway to lake, new fence, new insulation and storm windows, a replacement sliding door, a new hot 115-gallon water heater and the shower nozzles have been replaced for better water pressure. Additional improvements are scheduled to truly provide the best possible vacation home for future guests. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again, at this home, as the homeowner and our team takes great pride in the memories that we can assist our guests in creating at this beautiful retreat in the Adirondacks.

This beautifully located house, right at Schroon Lake’s edge, offers plenty of indoor & outdoor space for family vacations/ reunions. Three families - which included 1 teen & 3 children under 10 - found plenty of beds, bedrooms, & bathrooms to satisfy our sleeping & privacy needs. The house is 2 miles south of the town of Schroon Lake, & a quick drive to our favorite restaurant, Sticks & Stones. Lots in the area to entertain everyone - mountain hikes, boating on & swimming in the lake, a Railbiking trip that the entire family can enjoy, Adirondack Extreme for those who want to test their skills, shopping & ice cream in town. Would certainly visit again.
