The home was just right for us. One wall is all windows and a sliding glass door. They let in a wonderful breeze and lots of sunlight, which passes through tall trees. There are two places where you can sit and watch boats go by: one on the deck and one half way up the wood steps leading to the boat landing. My son went swimming and I water-colored from the deck. We also hiked a few nearby trails, explored Ticonderoga and Bolton Landing. Next time we'll do more hiking, boating, and swimming. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. Our hosts, Forrest and Nancy, are delightful, knowledgable and helpful.
