Why Bill Nast chose Katskill Bay

Our Grandparents built this house on beautiful Lake George. As the story goes, Alexander and Belle came up from New York City in the late 20’s and rented a summer cottage on Diamond Point. They decided to explore the yet undeveloped east side of the lake by row boat. While on the water, a storm blew-in and this beach was the only place they could pull the boat to land. They loved what they found and inquired of its availability.

It just so happened that this area of the lake was a land grant from King George III to the Oakley Estate (locals who favored the King) with the stipulation from the King that the tall pine trees remain available to the crown for ship masts. Alexander and Belle purchased the property but had to wait a few years for a dirt road to be cut along the shore (Pilot Knob Rd) for access. With the help of his brother-in-law Judd, who was an engineer by trade, they built the original cottage. In the late 1960’s, as the family continued to grow, the main cottage had a major renovation and the second cottage was built.

Alexander was a prolific painter who’s works you’ll enjoy throughout the house. His daughter painted his portrait that hangs on the porch. Four generations have grown up here with lasting memories. Our grandparents had a dream, to create a gift on Lake George for their family to enjoy for generations. We hope by sharing this dream with you, you will come to appreciate all the beauty that is Lake George.

Perfect lake house

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best mini family vacay we have ever had. This beautiful cottage was perfect for us and our 3 girls. The girls were in absolute heaven playing on the water on the Sandy beach. The house itself was great! We loved the real lake house feel and we were more than comfortable. We look forward to renting it again and coming back to Lake George! Thank you!

A Rental with Character

  • 5 of 5

This lake front cottage and guest cottage have charm and character. We picked this spot for my daughter's wedding weekend. As a matter of fact, the ceremony took place right by the lake. It was a small, private ceremony with 15 close family members on a beautiful autumn Saturday afternoon. The well equipped kitchen was perfect for our celebration needs, as we enjoyed appetizers and Hors d'oeuvres served on a variety of unique serving pieces. There was not one thing we needed that was not supplied at this property. A delicious dinner was enjoyed at the nearby Le Roux Bistro, where the staff was gracious and accommodating. The cottages were clean and well maintained and the amenities were thoroughly enjoyed, from fishing from the dock to enjoying some early morning canoeing and spending a relaxing evening by the outdoor fire pit. I appreciate that the owner was quick to respond to all of my correspondence and inquiries. I highly recommend this vacation rental.

AWESOME TIME!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this wonderful Lakehouse with my girlfriend and two other couples and we had the time of our lives. The house has a wonderful view, private beach, firepit and beach hammocks with a large dock. The house is nestled at the end of the street in the woods for comfort and privacy. The house is rustic and modern and we felt as if we were staying in "country luxery". The house is close to restaurants, bars, shops and Lake George Village which is a fun time. I highly recommend you check this house out. We are already planning our return trip for next year!

Great Lake George Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our vaction at Lake George could not be more perfect due to the house we rented from Bill Nast.

The house is perfectly located on the lake with a sandy beach!!! Great privacy and very friendly neighbors. Everyone enjoyed the swimming and fishing off the dock. The lake receives a late afternoon sun and breath taking sun set. We were fortunate to enjoy the sunset every evening. Late at night the stars were over whelming if you were standing on the dock.

The house has a great deal of character and charm in that you could actually spend a few hours touring and exploring the house. There is a great deal of interesting "nick nacks", old newspapers etc. etc.

The house and cottage has all you would expect when it came to cooking and eating. The porch is where we at all of our meals during breakfast and dinner which has a stunning view of the lake and mountains.

Over all we enjoyed our stay at the house and would definately recommend to anyone planning a stay at Lake George.
