Pilot Knob house description
This rare property embraces the surrounding beauty of the lake and the Adirondack woodlands. This charming waterfront home has over 310 ft of lakefront on an acre on the quiet east shore of Lake George in the Adirondack State Park. The home just sits a few steps away from the Lake George and enjoys outstanding lake views. This home is in a private gated residential area so it is very quiet and secure.
The knotty pine interior of the home makes it truly a warm and inviting place. This home has two levels and is set up to sleep seven. The main floor has living/ dining room, kitchen, bedroom/ full bath, den w/additional single bed and screened porch. The lower level, which opens onto the lake, has its own living/ game room with fireplace, bedroom with 2 double beds, and laundry with toilet. Full sun can be enjoyed from the sundeck on top of the boathouse and great swimming/ diving from the dock with moorage for 27 'boat under cover and canoes/kayake.
310 Feet of Private Lake Front Retreat: Dawn O'Day sits on the quiet east shore of Lake George in the Adirondack State Park. It has over 310 feet of lake front on about one acre in a private gated residential area called Camp Andrews which borders thousands of acres of 'forever wild' Adirondack Forest Preserve. This waterfront home was originally a summer camp which was rebuilt over 40 years ago to expand the living area and make it into a year round residence. It was named 'Dawn O'Day' because of its great sunrises but it also has the most stunning sunsets on the Lake. It is a perfect place for individuals or families who like privacy while enjoying breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains - all only steps away.
Swim, dive, bird watch, hike, water-ski, play golf or simply relax at the 'Queen of American Lakes' Lake George and experience the charming setting of 'Dawn O'Day.'
Comfortable Accommodations: The main floor has one bedroom with a queen size bed, dressers, nightstand w/phone and large closet. The bathroom on this floor has a tub and shower. The den that adjoins the living room area has an additional single bed, writing table, dressers and closet and can be closed off for complete privacy.
The lower level bedroom has two double beds with a window that looks on to the Lake. All bedrooms have ample storage for clothing in dressers and there is plenty of closet space.
Utility closets on the main level of the house contain all of the cleaning supplies and equipment that you will need to maintain this self-catering property. An iron and ironing board are also provided. The washer, dryer and toilet are in the laundry room on the lower level. Extra storage is available for toys or other items. Although the house stays comfortable on those hot summer days fans are provided.
Old Style Adirondack Charm: The knotty pine interior of the home makes it truly a warm and inviting place. Both levels of the home have commanding views of the lake which is just a few feet away from the house. The main floor has one bedroom, open living-dining and kitchen area, a screened porch just off the kitchen, bath with tub and shower, and den with an additional single bed. There is a television w/cable on this and the lower level. The lower level living area has a stone fireplace and plenty of room for the family to stretch out and relax.

My family stayed here for a week in August 2008. The dock is great for jumping off of, and the other side is shallow enough for our kids to stand on sandy bottom. Clear water with no lake weeds. The downstairs was big enough for our four kids to enjoy as their space. Top of boat house wonderful for sunbathing, and for gazing at the lake vistas. We left some items behind, and the owners mailed them to us. Overall a wonderful week in a nice lakefront home!
