Very friendly hosts and clean beautiful rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented from Laura and Jeff for a long weekend so we were close to Saratoga Springs and the house was perfect for what we needed. We had 4 adults, a 6 month old and 2 dogs so the walking distance to the lake and the surroundings in general were beautiful. The house was very clean and Laura was always available for questions of any kind. We would definitely go back!

Perfect for our cousins reunion with 5 kids (4-9) and rotating of adults as well enjoyed the week. Plenty of space for big dinners, great to enjoy the peaceful lake and easy to enjoy Saratoga with concerts at SPAC, the track etc. we spent most of our time at the lake and playing games. It was great.

This place is awesome! Best camp in the grove for sure.

  • 5 of 5

Owners Laura and Jeff were great hosts and were there for anything we might need during our stay. This camp had everything a family needs to enjoy galway lake to the fullest! Fishing poles, beach cart, kayak's, canoe, and a ton of other great commodities. The kitchen had great cooking equipment including a double oven which was a big plus for cooking for 10 people. Our family enjoyed the outdoor shower and hot tub which made relaxing and cleaning up after a day at the lake seamless, especially since we had a large group of kids and adults. Our family totally loved our time at the property and would love to stay there again. Over the years we have stayed at many camps in the grove and on the lake, Laura and Jeffs place is by far top notch. We had an absolute blast!

The house and the lake - both are the best.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent choice for a three generation family get-together. The house and cabin were clean, comfortable and well stocked. My wife and I enjoyed the calm and quiet of the charming cabin and our children and grandchildren had room to stretch out and relax. There is a level area that’s great fun for casual yard games and we had a delightful time swimming, fishing and paddling at the lake.
