About John Porpora

My wife and family have been vacationing in the Adirondacks every summer since our children were born. Silver Bay YMCA Association is a great place to bring families. We purchased our home in 1995 and have been renting it to families like ours who come from all over the US and Canada to enjoy this exceptional vacation spot in the Adirondack mountains. The lake water is crystal clear and the mountains that surround it are beautiful.

John Porpora purchased this house in 1995

Why John Porpora chose New York

We bought this home because we love Lake George and it is very near Silver Bay YMCA Association, a great family destination that attracts wonderful people from around the world. Every season offers activities and spectacular views. Our favorite season is the Fall for all the bright colors, apple picking and warm cozy nights in front of a fireplace. There is nothing like a simple home cooked meal, sharing games with friends and family or curling up with a book.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy escaping from a hectic work week and just having a chance to reconnect and relax. Our Guest Book is full of stories from families who have re-charged their lives during weeks at our home and luxuriate in the beauty of these magnificent mountains and awe inspiring lake. Every day the lake changes color with the sun and light. The stars are amazing to see at night and the moon lights up the late night sky with rays that bathe our home in light. Families have come for reunions, vacations, weddings, and a chance to reconnect with each other and nature. We promise your blood pressure will go down and your sense of wonder will go up in this beautiful and serene place.

The perfect setting for our family vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a second stay at this beautiful home recently, and it was every bit as special as we remembered from our first visit a few years back. It is a warm and inviting home with an exquisite view of the lake from most rooms. We were extremely comfortable staying here, and found the location perfect for so many nearby activities. We kept very busy swimming in the lake from conveniently located public points, kayaking in the Northwest Bay, hiking the nearby trails. Nearby day trips include The Adirondack Museum, Fort Ticonderoga, and the Ausable Chasm. After all the fun, it was great to have such a well-equipped and comfortable home to come back to. We made many wonderful family memories on this vacation, and thank Millie & John for being so helpful and such a pleasure!

A Must Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time our family has been to Lake George. The house was everything we could have hoped for. Modern but yet a very country feel. The view was amazing and the access to the lake was very easy. My young boys caught their first fish on this trip and the look on their faces will be with us forever. My husband being a runner enjoyed all the trails and hills around the lake. The sunrise was amazing and the quiet neighborhood was everything we could have desired. We hope to come back soon. One of the most relaxing times we have had on any vacation. Thank you, to the owners.

Special House and Place

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem. Nestled on a hill side just up from the one of the most treasured lakes in the country, it is quiet and peaceful and very comfortable. The bedrooms are each very unique and it has all the amenities you could ask for: kitchen good for cooking, multiple bathrooms that are clean, ceiling fans, sitting areas, a screened in porch and a lovely patio. Open the windows and listen to the trees sway in the wind and the water of the lake below. It is walking distance to the Silver Bay Y which has a great beach for swimming and other services and facilities you can use for a fee. We took full advantage of the Y. The owners made us feel very welcome and were extremely gracious. I would definitely rent this place again in the future, but next time I would like to stay longer!

Amazing Home - made our family vacation PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our vacation at this beautiful home on Lake George. Every view from the house is spectacular with colors glistening off the lake and mountains. We wish our home had a kitchen as fully equipped as this one and the bedrooms all had hotel quality mattresses. The sound system, DVD, and CD made our days a lot of fun. There are loads of books and games in this house and it is a short walk from the Silver Bay YMCA campus which has every activity you could want. A week is not enough here --- there is so much to see and do and our children loved their time here. The owners are great to work with and provided lots of travel suggestions too. We will definitely be returning to this great home again. THIS HOME IS A GREAT FIND --- you won't be disappointed.
