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:
Thank you for your feedback, Edward. We are sorry that this home did not meet your expectations, but we are glad that Megan was able to help you with the issues that arose during your stay. This home is not equipped with air conditioning and is not advertised as having this as an amenity. We are working with the owner to improve this home for future guests!

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.
