About Vasili Stertsios
I have always loved the Great outdoors and my first drive to the Adirondacks and especially the Lake George area made me want to be more than an occasional visitor here.
Vasili Stertsios purchased this House in 1998
Why Vasili Stertsios chose Johnsburg
This property is simply beautiful. The setting is ideal and I immediately felt at home when the realtor pulled into the driveway. A walk on Washer Hill Rd next to this house which is adjacent to Mill Creek is just so peaceful and idyllic...I knew I would be here for a long time. The sound of the water is so relaxing. Then the trees surrounding the borders of this property are so high and smell so good. Some trees are over 500 years old. The gentle slopes of the property are just so visually pleasing.
What makes this House unique
Benefits include, senses reawakened, a feeling of relaxation which makes many people feel that although they came up to do all sorts of outdoor activities, just hanging around the property and walking to go fishing in the Mill Creek or just wading in the water or making a bonfire is most of the time satisfying in itself.

This place was perfect for our yearly family getaway. We were a group of 6 adults and 3 children, the rooms were perfect and the rest of the house was relaxing and well decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, silverware and the such.
The outside area was great, we had the fire pit, grilling/eating area to our self. Sitting by the fire and hearing the beautiful waterfall was so relaxing.
Our welcome was great, Dick the care taker was so welcoming and checked on us mid weekend to make sure we had everything we needed.
Pool area was shared but created a friendly atmosphere amongst all guests.
I would definitely stay here again.
This home is set in a beautiful location. The pool is very nice and the home is not bad but out of date. The home was listed as having a hot tub which it does not and is not suitable for 14 people. We had 5 children and the couches that were to be beds were uncomfortable and 1 was damaged. The WiFI is spotty and service was very poor but your in the Mountains so that is to be expected.
The kitchen has every thing you will need as far as pans, pots cutlery and dishes. There is plenty of seating in the dining are but not for leisure.
Outside the fire pit is very nice. Plenty of seats and a nice picnic bench. The pond/waterfall is very relaxing.
Dick Doux the caretaker while very helpful and quick to respond to any issues we had resides on the lower level of the home which we were not informed of previously. He was very friendly but we would have preferred a little more privacy.
The location isn't too far out of Lake George, about 30 minutes, there is a few small stores to pick up some groceries a short drive from the home.
While there were a few issues that we had it was overall a nice place to stay.
Gore Mountain Ski Trip
We are a family of seven and the home was more than accommodating enough for our large family. We had a fantastic time at the Sparrow's Nest and were thankful for Dick's gracious assistance. The setting is stunning and the home is extremely convenient to Gore Mountain if you are there to ski. We would absolutely stay again!
WALKED INTO A VERY SECLUDED CABIN STYLE HOME
ARRIVED THERE WITH MY FAMILY. WE HOSTED A FAMILY REUNION FOR 4 DAYS AT THE HOUSE AND CABIN. THE OWNER OF THE HOME ALONG WITH DICK DOUX (PROPERTY MANAGER) WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE OUR STAY COMFORTABLE AND A GREAT TIME. EVERYTHING IN THE HOME IS INCLUDED ALONG WITH 2 GRILLS IN THE HOME AND 1 GRILL PER CABIN. THE KIDS LOVED THE POOL AND SPACE THEY HAD TO RUN AROUND AND JUST DO THINGS OUTDOORS. MAKE SURE YOU PACK ENOUGH THINGS BECAUSE THE NEAREST STORE IS ABOUT 20 MIN. DRIVE. IT FELT LIKE WE WERE HOME AND FELT SO COMFORTABLE IN THE HOME WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE. SO MUCH SPACE, SO MANY CABINS AVAILABLE FOR LARGE FAMILIES. COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER GET AWAY FOR KIDS AND ADULTS. SO MANY THINGS TO DO WITHIN A 30 MIN DRIVE EACH WAY.
Great out-of-the-way location; quality did not meet expectations
This cabin is in a nice out-of-the-way location in the southern Adirondacks. If you want peace, quiet, and isolation, you'll find it. If you want nice hiking trails within a 10-30 minute drive, you'll find them. (I particularly recommend Auger Falls for a short hike to amazing scenery.) If you're looking for shops and nightlife, this is the *wrong place*. Likewise if you like to pop out to buy bread and milk before breakfast, you'll be out of luck.
However, for the price we paid, I would have expected minor amenities like toilet paper, towels, dish soap, etc. These little things are *not* provided and you have to bring your own. Considering that you'll have to stop for groceries on the way anyways this is not a huge deal, but it is an unnecessary annoyance.
Perfect location - close enough to the action, but far away enough to be a true escape. Beautiful property, great salt water pool, and very comfortable home. Exactly as pictured. Kitchen has everything needed for cooking and family meals. The firepit is a great place to gather, and the pond, waterfall, and plantings are beautiful . Property Manager, Dick was the best host and so very accommodating. Our family of 11 had plenty of room and would highly recommend this rental for a great family vacation.
There is something for each season in our area. Great skiing in the winter. Fishing hiking is great especially in the Fall and white water rafting in the Spring and Summer. Great swimming beaches all over our area.
