Our "Breezy Knoll" Cabin on Lake Desolation


“Breezy Knoll” is our rustic vacation cabin on Lake Desolation, in Middle Grove, NY.  just 12 miles west of Saratoga Springs.  We believe it was built around 1910 as a surveyor’s cabin.   Lake Desolation was a popular spot for fishing and hunting from the early 1900’s.  Many trails still exist for hiking and mountain biking. 

At one time the area had two inns for overnight guests on the lake and another a few miles back in the woods. There was also a glass factory and graphite mine nearby with small settlements of their own. The glass factory made bottles for Saratoga Springs mineral water. Vintage postcards show guests enjoying the lake and these inns beginning around 1905 through the 1950’s. Norm and I had a home on the lake for ten years prior to starting the Geyser Lodge Bed and Breakfast in nearby Saratoga Springs. We enjoyed living at the lake so much, Breezy Knoll was purchased as a family get away.

“Breezy Knoll” cabin is available for rental from mid-May through mid-October for 4-6 guests. It was recently renovated and is fully furnished. We generally rent the cabin for a week at a time at a rate of $650. Occasional weekends may be available. The end of July through Labor Day is often rented for the full six weeks of the Saratoga Springs horse racing season so book early! Discounts for stays longer than one week are available.

The cabin offers:

  • Full view of the lake

  • Wood-burning fireplace and inside gas “wood stove appearing” fireplace

  • Color TV/VCR downstairs (no cable) and portable CD player with radio

  • Screened and open wrap around porch

  • Fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker

  • Use of common deck just below the cabin

  • Bathroom with shower

  • A queen sized futon with a thick, comfortable mattress downstairs

  • Telephone / Most cellular services available

  • Two double beds in the loft area upstairs

  • Picnic table and outdoor fire pit

Many of our guests return each year.  They say it has something to do with sitting in a rocking chair with a cool drink and watching the sunsets from the porch.  To make an appointment to see the cabin or request more information please call Sandy at 518-584-0389
