Pilot Knob Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)
Since purchased by Pop-pop Eastman in 1947, our lake property has been enjoyed by family and friends for generations. Location is just north of Echo Bay on the main body of the 'Queen of the American Lakes'. Our camp consists of two cabins, garage and dock with sundeck, all situated along more than 100' of shoreline. From the dock, Assembly Point, Lake George Village and Long Island can be seen to the southwest and the Sagamore Hotel, Tongue Mountain and Dome Island can be seen to the north. Mature trees on the property are home to chipmunks, red squirrels and, of course, the list of bird species for the area is endless. Loons can be heard in the distance and otters have been spotted occasionally scampering along the water's edge. Canoeing/kayaking is awesome with many nearby inlets to explore! Fishing and swimming right off the dock are a big plus at this private retreat with miscellaneous water toys available for your use stored in the garage. New sundeck over the boatslip is a perfect spot to spend time lounging and relaxing and enjoying the view. The boatslip accommodates only small crafts. For more information and details on docking a boat at our place, please contact us.
Being on the east shore, the sunsets are beautiful! A chimenea on the front deck can add to the evening ambience- also perfect for toasting marshmallows. On clear nights, the sky is filled with stars, planets and shooting stars. Even catch the passing of the International Space Station if your timing is right!
The fishing on Lake George is great- from mid-April up to the end of October offers the finest fishing for large and smallmouth bass, perch (my personal favorite!), bluegill, northern pike, pickerel, lake trout and salmon.
Just 5 minutes away is the Cleverdale Country Store which offers a wide variety of food, drink and supplies. Great sandwiches, fresh local produce, meats, ice cream, gifts and more!
Three nearby marinas- Fischers, Pilot Knob and Castaway for all of your boating needs.
Less than 10 minutes away, the Ridge Terrace Restaurant is one of the best in the area for fine dining.
