Why Bill Nast chose Kattskill 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 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. Five 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.

My family is originally from Lake George but moved to Colorado 5 years ago. This is our 2nd time renting this camp and we love coming here with family. From the sandy beach and beautiful views, to the rustic great room and updated kitchen/baths, this place is a gem. Thank you for another wonderful vacation!
Friends and Family together on beautiful Lake George! Thank you Bill for allowing us to use your beautiful place on the lake!
We loved staying there!
The owner and his son were both very pleasant and were available to answer any and all questions that we had. The property was very clean and everything we needed was there. We had full use of the house and yard and we enjoyed our stay!
What a beautiful spot!
The property and buildings are beautifully maintained and the location is great!
The weekend vacation was wonderful. Plenty of room for the 6 adults, 4 kids and a baby!
Overall, the place was perfect with an outdoor fire pit and indoor fireplace. Nice large porch where we ate all of our evening dinners. My only suggestion for an improvement would be to increase the lighting especially in the living room and bedrooms. Everything else exceeded our expectations and we’d love to return again soon! Bill, the owner was easily accessible and answered any texts within minutes.
Another dreamy stay
This was our second time staying at Bill's cottage. It is cozy and rustic in all the right ways, while at the same time having modern touches like updated kitchen and baths. The location is perfect, and our kids loved wading on the little sand beach. Would absolutely recommend!
Located on the south eastern side of the lake, the property is only 15 min by boat to Lake George Village or the Sagamore hotel. Easy access to hiking within 2 miles. Katskill Bay is great for water skiing and Sandy Bay is perfect for anchoring with other boats. 4 marinas/fishing supplies located within 5 miles. General Store 3 miles.
