Simply put, Lake George is one of the most beautiful and pristine lakes in the country. The northern end is perhaps the most peaceful and picturesque area of the entire lake. Our lake house is uniquely located facing south on the peninsula of Black Point. Just sit back in a chair on the lawn (or in the living room) with your beverage of choice and watch the wildlife, boats, movement of the water or wait for the sunset over the mountains. So restful.
Our lake house features 150 feet of water frontage, large dock, beautiful sunrises from the kitchen window and sunsets from the living room window and backyard, private neighborhood beach, short walk to the town sandy beach, and only 5 minutes to the boat launch. The town beach has lifeguards, bathrooms, swings, beach volleyball, and picnic pavilion. There aren't very many waterfront houses on Lake George that face south. This is a great house for families or for a week escape with friends - there's even a finished basement with ping-pong and foosball.
When you enter The Point House you'll be struck by the view straight ahead out the dining room window. Come in, drop your bags and rush to the living room window. The southern view of Rogers Rock and Anthony's Nose is spectacular. Leave the bags in the hallway and go out to the back lawn exiting through the three-season porch. This is why you're here – the shady lawn is the place to spend a summer afternoon. You'll notice the dock and the shallow water down below – kids (and adults!) will have a blast jumping into the lake. The lake bottom here is a mixture of sand and small rocks – no muck here. Notice the large rock next to the dock and make a mental note to reserve some time to sit there with a book or come out at night to star gaze.
While you'll love the view and the closeness of the water, you'll also feel at home with the accommodations and amenities the house has to offer. The large kitchen features all new appliances including a double wine/beer chiller, dishwasher, and microwave. There is plenty of counter space to prepare food and even an eat-in kitchen dining area. All necessities are included: coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, service for twelve, and even an espresso maker!
Long after you travel home you'll remember the view from the living room picture window. Watch for sunrises, sunsets, birds, or enjoy the peaceful lulling of the water. There is also a wi-fi flat-screen TV, fireplace, ping-pong table, and game cabinet. This main room, furnished in mid-century modern, also features a dining area. The table comes with several leaves and can accommodate ten people.
If you prefer, make the three season room your main living area. With a dining table that seats six plus a loveseat and armchairs, you can spend all day here. Open the windows for a summer breeze, or keep them closed for a cozy fall afternoon.
The large master bedroom has lovely lake views and a king size bed. There are great views of Rogers Rock from the bed! The second bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds and an additional twin trundle and sleeps five comfortably. The third bedroom has a double bed. There's plenty of room for the whole family, and is great for a vacation with extended family or friends.
The main bathroom was completely renovated in 2017 and features a tub/shower and double-basin sink. There is also a great view from this room! The second bathroom (on the lower lever), also recently renovated, features a shower stall. There is also a half bath next to the kitchen.
The lower level has a laundry room with washer and dryer. The playroom is down a half flight from the laundry area, with ping pong, foosball, and its own Sonos speaker.
Please note that there is air conditioning only in the master bedroom. Fans are located in each bedroom and the main living area.
A fire pit is included on the lakeside lawn. A canoe and five kayaks with life jackets and paddles are available for use.
During the summer season The Point House is available by the week on a Saturday to Saturday basis. The dock can accommodate one boat up to 25' in length. Please note that we do keep our boat at the house during the summer. It is stored on a lift out of the way.
We're travelers ourselves and are committed to providing a great vacation rental experience for all our guests.
We're so glad you found us and we're confident that you'll have a fun and relaxing time at The Point House!
