About Carl Liss

85 YEAR OLD SENIOR GENTLEMAN ORIGINALLY FROM SCHENECTADY. WILLIAMS COLLEGE '53

Carl Liss purchased this house in 1974

Why Carl Liss chose Lake George

I bought this property in 1974 as a world class vacation spot for my 4 young boys in easy commute from Schenectady.

What makes this house unique

I was impressed by the dramatic vista looking west at miles of the Lake and the sunset Also the wooded environment and the privacy as there are only 2 neighbors and the house is out of sight of the main road.

Great Vacation Spot with Waterfront

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as advertised, just bring your clothes and show up!

We stayed for a week August 2016. The home has everything you would need for your day to day needs and is well maintained, cared for and clean. The owner lives onsite, is pleasant and friendly but non intrusive. It may be the case you never see him but he is there if you have any needs regarding the house or want a simple recommendation for a restaurant or nearby activity. The owner is extremely reliable in terms of response through VRBO and will contact you regarding rental requests within 24 hours. I would definitely return and would recommend this rental to friends seeking a Lake George waterfront vacation.

The pictures on VRBO show the gorgeous views of the lake but cannot do it justice. The views from the common space of the home are spectacular at all times of the day. The western exposure provides beautiful sunshine on the waterfront from 10 AM on. The sunsets are absolutely spectacular whether you enjoy them from the deck above the boathouse or the screened in porch. We took full advantage of the screened porch for eating, relaxing and game playing. The other common spaces of the home provide a nice place to retire after a fun day on the water.

The home has a dock and space for a boat so bring yours or rent one from one of the marinas on the lake, just be sure to make a reservation well in advance so you are sure to get what you want. We enjoy water skiing, tubing, trips to Sandy Bay and just touring around the lake frontage looking at the homes. There is a shallow area (3 feet) with stairs for in/out access as well as deep water suitable for jumping/diving right in off the end of the dock. There are a few restaurants where you can drive your boat right up to the restaurant's dock for a bite to eat. Bolton and Lake George Village offer public docks so you can boat over and enjoy the shops/eateries of the towns.

The exterior of the house is well maintained. It is a wooded lakefront lot and the path down to the lakefront has great landscaping and is well lit in case you are up for a late night swim. The walk down to the lakefront is one thing to be aware of in that there are many steps making it unsuitable for persons with disabilities.

The home is located right near some hiking trails and is a short drive to The Great Escape Amusement and Water Park in case you are looking for a diversion. Wish we could've stayed longer, we were sorry to leave after a week
