LOCATION!! Cute home in city neighborhood. Walk to Crandall Park: lit x-country ski & bike trails; downtown: restaurants, Civic Ctr, theaters; 20 min. to Saratoga Springs: SPAC, Track; 10 min. to Lake George, West Mtn, Great Escape; 45min. to Gore.

The space

At the "Gateway to the Adirondacks", my house is a sweet, lovely home built in 1900. It has the charm of a Nantucket cottage - gray cedar shake siding with white trim. The interior is decorated to reflect warmth and comfort. First floor has a small kitchen with gas range, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffeepot, dishes, cooking & eating utensils; dining room has mahogany table and 4 chairs; livingroom has wool oriental carpet, leather sofa and recliner, flatscreen Smart TV with blue-ray dvd player & cable; reading room with recliner; full bath with shower. The bedroom (upstairs) has a queen bed, closet, and full bath with tub under eaves. The stairs are a little steep and narrow, and not good for anyone with crawling babies or toddlers. Air conditioning (2 window AC units) provide comfort in hot weather. Very warm in winter! Ample parking. Small yard has pleasant outdoor space under tall trees.

Guest access

Access to all areas. Locked owner closet, garage and basement.

Interaction with guests

House managers, Paul and Suzanne (in cottage across street), will be available to help with problems, provide keys, and answer questions. They are locals who enjoy all the area has to offer, are very social and willing to suggest restaurants, things to do, places to visit - many within walking distance.

Other things to note

The upstairs ceiling height in the center of the house, is 6'2" - it is less under the eaves. Full bath, and main living areas are downstairs. Paul and Suzanne (property managers & neighbors) offer bikes & snowshoes upon request. It's a GREAT neighborhood for biking, and lit X-country trails are 2 1/2 blocks away!

No smoking, and sorry, no pets. Additional overnight guests can be arranged for in advance; there is an air mattress and electric pump if requested. The fireplace is ornamental only, and non-functioning. Please don't burn candles or light fires for any reason (other than cooking on the gas stove). Please keep noise levels within reason out of respect for neighbors. I have steep, narrow stairs, so my house is not suitable for small children or toddlers, as the stairs can be dangerous and the only bedroom is upstairs. Parents MUST supervise children on the stairs. I love my little house and hope you will too - please take care of it as you would your own. One of my recent AirBnB guests burned my formica countertop by placing a very hot pan on it without protection. He would not pay for the damage he caused. AirBnB would not allow me to use my security deposit to replace the 2' section :-( I would ask that you be careful not to damage my home, because AirBnB's policy is IF the object (window, counter, wall, carpet, mattress) is still functional, it is the owner's risk and must be repaired/replaced at the owner's cost. Boo hoo. BE CAREFUL PLEASE AND USE COMMON SENSE!

We had a lovely time staying at Nanna's Cottage. She had such amazing little touches to her place that truly make it Nanna's Cottage. Even though the kitchen is a little small, there was everything that you could need to whip up a meal. It's clean, tidy, and cozy everything you'll need it to be. If we're ever staying in the area again we'll be looking at Nanna's Cottage first.

This small and very clean cottage is a delight and well situated in town. It sits behind a few other homes, off the street. Warm and simple. it is a relaxing space to be in. There is a small kitchen, fridge and the tools you may need. I particularly like that the home is free from lots of artificial smells. There is a dining area and a small sitting room with a flat-screen system. There is close and safe parking right behind the cottage. The home is tiny, and yet warm in the winter, which was quite a surprise for us, since we come from Los Angeles! The bed is quite comfortable, the bathrooms nice, and everything we needed had been thought of. You might need to duck in some parts of the bedroom upstairs, and the stairs to upstairs are steep, probably natural to many of you from the East Coast. Proceed with caution and all will be fine. This was our second stay and has become a favorite for us while we connect with family in town. The caretakers are close by, if any need should come up. They do a great job keeping it all tidy and ready. Of note, nearby, in winter, on Saturday mornings, there is a Farmers Market inside the local school, barely two blocks away, and such nice products can be found there. Look that up online, along with the great restaurants in town!

Charlene, I am so glad my little cottage meets your needs and that you enjoy your visits there. Everything you say is how I feel about it too ❤️ I am happy I can share my space with you, and thank you for returning. Also, thanks for the Farmer's Market recommendation. You seem to have found some of the best things Glen's Falls has to offer. Take care and I hope you will be back again next year!

Robin’s home is lovely and very cozy. It’s close to Lake George, but is also very suitable for a “staycation”. Robin was easy to reach and left lots of helpful tips for the local area. Highly recommend!

We LOVED Nana's Cottage. Glens Falls is a hidden gem in the Saratoga/Lake George/Adirondack area. Beautiful walks, lovely neighborhoods, and great food. Robin's cottage is close to all these things. The location make a walk downtown for some great food or an AM walk for coffee and a stroll along the Hudson easy. The cottage was great for the two of us with wonderful communication by Robin, an easy check-in and wonderful neighbors who made themselves available to answer questions or help us out as needed. We are looking forward to our next visit. Lisa

I am a retired educator, and cellist, and live in West Virginia, but own my little home in Glens Falls (where I raised my children), so I can go back and play with my 5 grandchildren who live nearby - thus Nanna's Cottage. I am back and forth about every other month, and have wo…
