Why Vasili Stertsios chose Lake George Area

I fell in love with this part of Lake George and Gore Mt Region and bought several properties here over the past 11 years. The charm of this particular house combined with the potential to accommodate large groups of people sold itself in my eyes.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful historic home! The location was perfect, in a small town but a short drive to Lake George Village! So many hiking trails and lake swimming close by. The home is older and that is noticeable, but it's beautiful and unique. We had everything we needed right there in the house and the grocery store was a very short walk away! The pool area was fenced in and private and surrounded by greenery, it is beautiful. There were 13 of us and we had plenty of space, we even had a bedroom we didn't utilize! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay that is not in the heart of the tourist area.

Nice pool but very noisy and busy setting - way overpriced

  • 2 of 5

The good: very nice pool, close to amenities - grocery store, ice cream parlor and basketball court - which my kids loved.

The bad - the house is located on a busy main road that is a primary route for TRUCKS - lumber, sanitation, etc. Sitting at the patio, we literally could not hear ourselves when the trucks frequently passed by and the diesel fumes were overpowering. Not the place to go if you are looking for some peace and quiet.

Way overpriced for what you get.

Owner's Response: While the house is located on Main Street, it is the Main Street of Chestertown which is a very small hamlet in the Lake George Region. The Speed Limit is 25 miles per hour and although we do occasionally get trucks passing by, nobody has ever regarded this as an issue. Some of the positive aspects of being in town are that guests can walk to the Supermarket, and to several restaurants, ice cream parlor etc. As far as being overpriced, we are at least $2,000 less expensive than other houses with similar sleeping capacity and living spaces.

Elegant old Lady

  • 4 of 5

Elizabeth house is an elegant old lady that is starting to show her age on the exterior but is warm and welcoming on the inside. My family (8 adults and 9 children under 14) descended on the home and were graciously taken in. The interior was spotless, large and inviting. The kitchen was well stocked and the two dining rooms made meals a snap. There was so much room that adults and kids could all find a space for themselves. The screened in porch was the favorite amongst all of us. I also must mention the large clean pool out back the kids seem to live in. It was cleaned and maintained by a young man two or three times during our stay. You will find Dick, the property manager an agreeable, friendly, helpful person. He made immediate contact with us and helped us settle in.

The best thing about the house is the location. Convenient to everything. Loon lake just 5 minutes drive up the road is great for families. It has a life guard, swimming area, rest rooms, picnic tables and free parking. Schroon lake was superb for renting a boat and tubing. Hiking trails surrounded us. Less than an hours drive we visited Fort Ticonderoga. Don't miss the Adventure Course just 15 minutes from the house. Last you will appreciate the convenience of a full market within walking distance and the Farmers Market on Wed. A great time was had by all.

Lovely Fall Spot

  • 4 of 5

This is a very spacious, gracious old home. We found everything we needed at the house and spent our time cooking, sitting out by the pool, and visiting the Ice Cream Parlor and Restaurant just up the street. We were a group of 12 so the house was more than big enough for our needs. The kitchen is fairly well stocked with glassware, dishware, and pots/pans for cooking though we really would have loved some sharp knives and a pancake griddle for the big breakfasts. I would definitely recommend the house to others and would plan to come back myself with my family.

Wonderful week!

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful week at the Elizabeth House. The house was just as it was pictured and very, very spacious. We had 15 people and never felt crowded. The pool was well kept up and very refreshing. We enjoyed eating on the porch most days and when it was too hot, we were glad to have the air conditioning. The house was clean when we arrived and Dick left his number in case we needed him. It was only a 20 minute drive to Lake George and 10 minutes to Bolton Landing. We also walked just several houses down to the grocery store or the ice cream parlor. We were well taken care of during our week. We would certainly stay here again when visiting this area. Thank you Dick for you attentiveness.

Great house in a great place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house very late but this was not a problem. The manager called and then came to say hi in the morning. There were 12 of us staying in the house and we had plenty of room. There were lots of bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Food was very easy to get because the supermarket was only a 2 minute walk away. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all our meals (there was even a grill outside to bbq on!). My group spent alot of time in the pool which was very clean and a nice, refreshing temperature. Overall, we all enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely recommend this house to anyone going to that area!

We are only 3 to 4 minutes to Loon Lake which has a beautiful sandy beach to swim in. Also we are only 15 minutes to Lake George where you will find all summer activities such as cruises, paragliding, arcade stores, Great Adventure action park many great restaurants. There is something for everyone in Lake George. Also we are 15 minutes to Gore Mt. for some great skiing and to Hudson white water rafting.
