Ballston lake which long and narrow lake and partly comes in the ballston not fully. This lake is in the southern part and you want home or cottage in the northern part (upstate) so how is it possible?

Ballston Lake is in Upstate.. It is nestled between Ballston Spa, and Burnt Hills. It is very possible. There are homes, and cottages with Lake front.

This wonderful family home is conveniently located just off the Adirondack Northway Route 87 Exit 10, Close to all that the town of Ballston Lake has to offer. Fine dining, close to major shopping malls but with the privacy of a neighborhood community. The actual body of water known as "Ballston Lake" is several minutes northwest of this location.

Please contact me if you are looking for "waterfront" homes on or around the perimeter of Ballston Lake itself as there is a limited supply of such properties. Homes located on the waterfront of this lake do have access to boating, fishing and swimming.

Ballston Lake is very small and narrow and overrun with boats and jetskis. This should be a non-motorized lake but isn't. Fishing is good on the lake, however, the overcrowding makes it unpleasant.

Quite frankly the lake is rather tranquil. Our family just had dinner at Villago Italian Ristorante "on the lake" with a beautiful view which had a very calming effect as we enjoyed our meal and the superior service we have been accustomed to at this fine establishment.
