Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

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.

Why the Owner Chose Silver Bay, NY, USA:
This property is absolutely pristine. House and boat dock have been completely renovated. It is a year round home with full amenities.. The dock is sublime and perfect for swimming and boating. Sun is on dock from sunrise until 5 PM. There are covered areas if shade is desired. The porch is protected by screens and is perfect for reading while looking at the lake. There is room under roof in boat slip for a boat up to 30 feet long.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Propane BBQ hooked to home. WiFi and HiDef TV. ATT Cellular reaches home and house has its on Verizon Cell set up for perfect coverage. Expansive back yard with picnic area. This is a beautiful and cozy home with every modern convenience. It opens beautifully to the lake. 5 of 6 bedrooms face lake. Few homes in the area can comfortably sleep 12. There are 4 bedrooms in the main house (on two floors) with 2 full baths. Attached via a breezeway is a guest house with 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom. Upstairs main house sleeps 4. Downstairs main house sleeps another 4. The final 4 are in the guest house.
