About the Property
Sleep 12 comfortably.
House has 300 feet of private lake front on Sabbath Day Point at the southern end of Silver Bay on the northern part of Lake George, the Queen of Lakes. It has 6 bedrooms that very comfortably sleeps 12 people. 5 of the 6 face the lake with wonderful views. A large screened in porch is perfect for evening libations or even inclement days. Built in 1948 Mitten Rock Cottage has a beautiful history and charm with all the conveniences a family would want and need for a perfect and relaxing vacation. House fully restored and updated. A gorgeous covered boat house allows for both a 30 foot boat to be secured and swimming in water of 2 feet for children and 6 feet off the end. There is a latter for adults and stairs for the kids. The bottom is mostly sand and the water is so clean it is drinkable. There is sun on the dock all day but there is an area that is covered at all times for those that wish to get out of the sun.

About the owner: Grandson of original owner, Dr. Harold R. Gelhaar. My brother and I brought the house back into our family in 1994 after our grandparents needed to sell it in the early 80s. We spent years bringing Mitten Rock Cottage into the shape it is in today.
