About Vasili Stertsios

During the Summer of 1998 I got the Adirondack fever craze where I would take my old wood paneled station wagon and my black Lab George and we would drive up to the Adirondacks and sleep inside the car by some River or in a motel when we could find vacancy. I was looking for a simple cabin to purchase where I would complete the writing requirements of my graduate studies. When I found this wonderful property and was informed by the realtor that the current owners (a partnership) wanted out and would be willing to hold mortgage my fate was sealed. The story becomes complete when a year later I meant my quirky friend Dick Doux who is our onsite host. With a background in Hotel management and a genuine concern to take care of could we go wrong?

Vasili Stertsios purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Vasili Stertsios chose Johnsburg

The setting of the property is truly beautiful. The architectural design of true Adirondack Style cabins and the proximity to all outdoor activities made it ideal.

What makes this cabin unique

When you walk to the Mill Creek next to the property you will have left everything else behind you. You make a bonfire at night and smell the wonderful pine breeze and hear the this gives you a sense of inner peace and satisfaction.

Clean, cozy, quiet and just rustic enough

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nice and well equipped. Don't forget to bring towels. We loved being "away from it all" but it is about a 30 min drive to any bigger city so if you are looking to be around more stores, restaurants, etc...this would not be a good choice. But if you are looking for peaceful, quaint and good'll love this place. The pool was a great ammenity too. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Place is okay

  • 2 of 5

It wasn't the cleanest place. Beds and pillows smelled funky. Definitely had worse shower systems ever. if you plan to do do anything near lake George this isn't the place. It's about 30 minutes away from lake George.

Owner's Response: We regret our guests had this problem with Cabin #2. All bed linens, pillow cases, etc. are laundered freshly before each in coming renter. After housekeeping is done with the cabin Dick our manager also checks the place. We have been doing this since 1999 and this is the first time we get a review like this. If a renter has a problem with any issues like this, they should bring it to the attention of the on site Property Manager, who will see to guest needs immediately.] Lake George is about 17 miles and it's about 20 minutes away or 25 minutes. We don't advertise that we are in the village of Lake George.

Good value/Adirondack charm

  • 4 of 5

The lights were on and it was warm and cozy when we arrived late at night. Basic furnishings and appointments, but that fit the charm! Very close to Gore Mtn which was a must, as we were getting up and out early for ski races. We didn't build a fire because it was pretty warm, but I was surprised that there wasn't a good supply of wood available...we were told we could drive somewhere nearby to buy some. That was unusual.

Impressed with the eco Rinnai water heater...I've heard about these types of "heated water on demand" units, but never seen one in action. Really neat!

convenient location to ski at Gore

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is easily accessible and conveniently close to Gore, while at the same time having a secluded and rustic feel. The fireplace is convenient, and the accommodations are simple yet comfortable enough. The manager, Dick Doux, is a sweet man.

The cabin was exactly as advertised. Very clean and was ready for use when we arrived. The caretaker was friendly and introduced himself to us as soon as we got there. Great place to stay.
