Point Comfort is a small, privately owned point on the east shore of Lake
George. It is a rustic traditional Adirondack camp that has been changed very
little since it was built in the late 1880s. We have opted to preserve what we have
loved about our place from its past as it was left to us by our ancestors through
five generations. Which means we have not opted to update with all the modern
conveniences and amenities you might expect in a vacation rental.
The house is roughly built but comfortable. There is no insulation or even
interior wall finishes (the studs are bare on the inside). There is running water and
electricity. There is no microwave, dishwasher or television. You won’t need a
TV. You will spend all your time swimming in the clean, beautiful waters of Lake
George from the private docks or at the public beach on the other side of the Point,
sunning yourself, canoeing, hiking, etc. The house is on a road that dead-ends in
the NY State Adirondack Park. After that there is nothing but woods and
mountains. It is a great location to enjoy the outdoors. There is a lagoon behind
the house that is home to much pond life and is fun to explore or just gaze at
from the deck.
The house has five bedrooms and an outdoor sleeping porch. The
bedrooms sleep eight (one bedroom with a full bed, two bedrooms with two twin
beds each, and two bedrooms with one twin bed each). The unscreened porch
sleeps four. The kitchen is modestly supplied with silverware, plate ware, and
cookware. There is a toaster and coffee maker. The bathroom is available only
from the side porch.
George Henry Daley and Elizabeth Wood Daley went to Pilot Knob for their honeymoon.
