Stay in a piece of history. This house, which my family has called Mellowstone for over 100 years, is the only property on Lake George that sits on the Nation Historic Register. Filed under the name Owl’s Nest, the sister property and Mellowstone remain the only properties with this prestigious recognition. Mellowstone gained such accolades because it was once the library of literary great, Edward Eggleston, my great great grandfather! See more about Edward Eggleston in Wikipedia. Mellowstone was built around in the late 1800’s. Eggleston was an author and historian who wrote such books as The Hoosier Schoolmaster; The Hoosier Schoolboy; The Household History of the US and it's People; Circuilt Rider; Faith Doctor; Pocahontas and Roxy.
Mellowstone, which features granite exterior walls, was converted into a four-season house after several years of historic planning and an extensive renovation that took place over the past six months.
House Specifics: The first floor of the house boasts 13 foot ceilings with two wood burning fireplaces, a designer kitchen and masterful wood work. The house features hardwood floors throughout with three bedrooms on the second floor, one on the first floor and one on the lake level. The house has three FULL bathrooms. Each room features a queen bed! The house offers all new electricity, heating, air conditioning, on demand hot water, top of the line washer and dryer for laundry and stainless steel kitchen appliances. The house features a beautiful Mahogany deck that is built on granite stone piers too! The boathouse is fully enclosed and fully renovated as of this year.
Mellowstone is also available from September - May for monthly rental at an affordable rate. Please inquire.
You won’t find a more special place on the lake to share wonderful summer or winter memories. Feel free to ask me questions if you feel the house might be suitable. The house is conveniently located to number ski areas such as West Mountain (25 minutes), Gore Mountain (30 minutes) & Whiteface Mountain (60 minutes).
