Warren County offers homeowners a diversity of options, from urban lofts to historic village homes, from lakeside estates to rugged mountain cabins nestled amid the Adirondack Mountains. Home to the beautiful 32-mile long Lake George, popular ski resorts such as Gore Mountain, and a wealth of hiking and biking trails, the area truly offers four seasons of activities for both residents and visitors alike.
Due to the county’s diversity, homeowners may find several mortgage options available, including USDA loans, depending on location. You can check specific addresses on the USDA.gov site here.
Tucked into the county’s southeast corner is the city of Glens Falls, a small and friendly metropolitan area that retains much of the charm that earned the city its title of “Hometown U.S.A.” during the 1940s. An energetic downtown boasts shops, restaurants, pubs and theatres with repurposed garment factories providing wonderful commercial and residential loft spaces. Tree-lined neighborhoods feature rows of historic homes with their quintessential front porches and small-town appeal.
Queensbury, to the north of Glens Falls, is where you’ll find shopping malls and outlets, big box stores, and restaurant franchises, as well as many popular and well-tended suburban neighborhoods. Much of Queensbury is also ineligible for USDA Mortgages.
Travel farther north and you enter the scenic foothills of the Adirondacks and the charismatic village of Lake George. Other towns and villages along the county’s charming byways and highways include Bolton Landing, Brant Lake, Chestertown, Lake Luzerne, North Creek and Warrensburg. This large portion of Warren County is fully eligible for USDA mortgages, providing potential homeowners with a wealth of choices for both small village and rural living.
