About Vasili Stertsios

I have always loved the Great outdoors and my first drive to the Adirondacks and especially the Lake George area made me want to be more than an occasional visitor here.

Vasili Stertsios purchased this house in 1998

Why Vasili Stertsios chose Adirondacks

This property is simply beautiful. The setting is ideal and I immediately felt at home when the realtor pulled into the driveway.

A walk on Washer Hill Rd next to this house which is adjacent to Mill Creek is just so peaceful and idyllic...I knew I would be here for a long time. The sound of the water is so relaxing. Then the trees surrounding the borders of this property are so high and smell so good. Some trees are over 500 years old. The gentle slopes of the property are just so visually pleasing.

What makes this house unique

Benefits include, senses reawakened, a feeling of relaxation which makes many people feel that although they came up to do all sorts of outdoor activities, just hanging around the property and walking to go fishing in the Mill Creek or just wading in the water or making a bonfire is most of the time satisfying in itself.

Gore Mountain Ski Trip

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of seven and the home was more than accommodating enough for our large family. We had a fantastic time at the Sparrow's Nest and were thankful for Dick's gracious assistance. The setting is stunning and the home is extremely convenient to Gore Mountain if you are there to ski. We would absolutely stay again!

WALKED INTO A VERY SECLUDED CABIN STYLE HOME

  • 5 of 5

ARRIVED THERE WITH MY FAMILY. WE HOSTED A FAMILY REUNION FOR 4 DAYS AT THE HOUSE AND CABIN. THE OWNER OF THE HOME ALONG WITH DICK DOUX (PROPERTY MANAGER) WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE OUR STAY COMFORTABLE AND A GREAT TIME. EVERYTHING IN THE HOME IS INCLUDED ALONG WITH 2 GRILLS IN THE HOME AND 1 GRILL PER CABIN. THE KIDS LOVED THE POOL AND SPACE THEY HAD TO RUN AROUND AND JUST DO THINGS OUTDOORS. MAKE SURE YOU PACK ENOUGH THINGS BECAUSE THE NEAREST STORE IS ABOUT 20 MIN. DRIVE. IT FELT LIKE WE WERE HOME AND FELT SO COMFORTABLE IN THE HOME WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE. SO MUCH SPACE, SO MANY CABINS AVAILABLE FOR LARGE FAMILIES. COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER GET AWAY FOR KIDS AND ADULTS. SO MANY THINGS TO DO WITHIN A 30 MIN DRIVE EACH WAY.

Great out-of-the-way location; quality did not meet expectations

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is in a nice out-of-the-way location in the southern Adirondacks. If you want peace, quiet, and isolation, you'll find it. If you want nice hiking trails within a 10-30 minute drive, you'll find them. (I particularly recommend Auger Falls for a short hike to amazing scenery.) If you're looking for shops and nightlife, this is the *wrong place*. Likewise if you like to pop out to buy bread and milk before breakfast, you'll be out of luck.

However, for the price we paid, I would have expected minor amenities like toilet paper, towels, dish soap, etc. These little things are *not* provided and you have to bring your own. Considering that you'll have to stop for groceries on the way anyways this is not a huge deal, but it is an unnecessary annoyance.

Peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location - close enough to the action, but far away enough to be a true escape. Beautiful property, great salt water pool, and very comfortable home. Exactly as pictured. Kitchen has everything needed for cooking and family meals. The firepit is a great place to gather, and the pond, waterfall, and plantings are beautiful . Property Manager, Dick was the best host and so very accommodating. Our family of 11 had plenty of room and would highly recommend this rental for a great family vacation.

Wonderful and Exciting

  • 5 of 5

I went up there for 3 days with a group of friends and there was so much to do! It was steps away from a river, which we were able to jump in and swim through. It's only 20 minutes away from Lake George. It's very secluded and we had no problems. The owner and property manager are both very accommodating and we all had a great time. Whether you're coming for a family vacation or a trip with some friends, there's always something to do. Great review overall!

Great House and Location for Outdoor Fun

  • 5 of 5

I came with a houseful for a Whitewater Rafting trip for the weekend. It was perfect it accomodated 12 perfectly fine for the weekend we had space in the living room and was fine for sleeping arrangements. The Wifi was great saved us for not having any service at all but it made for a nice weekend.

I would highly suggest this house to any group going to the area , it is on a dirt road off the beaton path and is a great rental. Would stay here again for a ski trip or weekend again in a heartbeat!

There is something for each season in our area. Great skiing in the winter. Fishing hiking is great especially in the Fall and white water rafting in the Spring and Summer. Great swimming beaches all over our area.
