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 Silver Bay

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.

Absolutely beautiful!!!!!

My wife and I spent a fabulous Columbus Day weekend at Lake George. The house was very clean and well decorated. The lake views from the house were phenomenal. John was very helpful and accommodating for any requests that we had. I hope to return next year.

A wonderful stay at the beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our short trip to Adirondack mountains and I would like to share my feelings about a wonderful house we stayed in during this time. To start, I should mention that it is located in the area dominated by beautiful spacious houses that is not crowded by tons of tourists or cheap hotels and motels. Its location gives you a sense of exclusivity, and somehow you feel yourself like you have been here before and you are a member of Silver Bay community. It is really peaceful and happy place. And when you look outside on the lake and mountains through huge windows or sitting on a patio, you can't force yourself to stop looking and smiling. Additional benefit of its location is also a short walking distance to Silver Bay YMCA, where you can swim, rent a kayak, play tennis, etc. House itself is very well equipped and maintained, you will have everything you need for your stay there, and even more. The owners put a lot of thoughts and efforts to make it so lovely and convenient. The house has its own character, filled with amazing things that people collect and cherish, and you can feel that it is a good aura in it. Even if a weather is not so good you can find things to do in the house - there are many great books, a lot of CDs and DVDs to keep you entertained. We cooked our dinners and we even did not want to go out because we enjoyed spending time there with parents and friends. I hope we will come back next summer and we definitely would love to stay there again. Thank you!

Owners were very nice to work with and the house was even more then we could have hoped for --- we loved being here and so did our family --Thanks again for sharing it!!

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!
