Interaction with guests
If you would like to bring your pet on holiday: I have a pet fee (as stated in the house rules). It is $75 - If that is fine with you, I will be happy to add you to my schedule. Pets must stay downstairs, I have a queen bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and lots of windows so you and your pet will be comfortable. Please be sure to bring your pets dishes, bed and any comfort toys he/she may need. Pets are not allowed on the furniture - if your pet sleeps in bed with you - you must bring your own bedding. Pets love it up here as there are lots of places to run and hike right on and surrounding then property.

About the neighbourhood
This is a very private and quiet 'neighborhood '. While you can almost see another house through the woods....you are more likely to see deer or wild turkey roaming around. Across the street is state forest. A field surrounds the home - you can walk across the back yard and explore the many connecting trails from the property to different state trail locations like Pine Orchard or Murphy, Middle, and Bennett Lakes. There is a no-motor boat Lake .6 miles up the road. It is a small lake with a launch for kayaks or canoes. The crisp air in winter and the smell of the pines in summer will invite you out to adventure either on the property or the adjoining areas.
Getting around
Just a short drive to rafting trips with professional rafting companies, scenic train rides, Blue Mountain Lake Museum, Saratoga race track, S.P.A.C Cafe Lena's, shopping in historic downtown, Glens falls - amusement parks and The Great Escape, Lake George - entertainment, outlet stores, Cooperstown - Baseball Hall of Fame, Glimmer glass Opera House, Ommegang Belgium Brewery, Howe Caverns and much more. Pets are welcome with an additional fee
