Here is some information for Renters to read before
arriving that will help during your stay.
The arrival time is Saturday at 2:00 in the afternoon.
The departure time is Saturday by 10:00 in the morning.
If you arrive before 2:00 pm you may park and walk around,
however the cleaning crew may still be there and would need you to keep out of their way.
Do not stay later than 10:00 on Saturday at the end of your week so the Cleaning crew can
come in unhindered and precede quickly. Please leave the house clean, dishes done beds unmade,
trash put in the cans, outside grounds picked- litter free, everything in it's place.
It will help keep the rent costs down if the cleaning service does not have extra to do.
There is room for parking two cars at Pt. Comfort in the space between the small
outbuilding on the side of the road (Neddy’s Cabin) and the swamp. Please be
sure your car is completely off the road; there is a right of way through the
property and cars and trucks need to get through smoothly. There is no parking in
the space between the garage and the house.
The kitchen is supplied with the basics. There are an electric stove/oven,
refrigerator, toaster, and coffee maker. Most kitchen utensils are provided. Please
use water sparingly when doing dishes, because waste water goes into a
holding tank with limited capacity. Feel free to use the paper plates provided.
There is no dishwasher, microwave oven, automatic clothes washer or dryer,
television, or internet access.
The house has five bedrooms: two with one single bed each, two with two single
beds each, and one with a full bed. There will be a blanket and comforter on all
the beds and sheets for each bed in the top drawer of the bureau in each room.
The beds will not be made when you arrive. There are extra sheets and blankets
in the big green zinc box by the stairs on the second floor. There are towels in the
metal box in the upstairs NW bedroom. We suggest you bring your own bed
linens and towels to avoid having to make the trip into town to the laundromat on
your last day. If you use the sheets or towels provided, please wash them and
return them to where you found them before you leave. There are five single bed
mattresses on the sleeping porch. Sheets have not been left out for these beds.
The mattresses on the sleeping porch will be stacked up against the wall close to
the door to avoid the rainy weather, which usually blows from the southwest.
Spread them out as you need them and leave them spread out for your stay if you
wish. Please remember to stack them up again when you leave or when there is a
wet, blustery storm.
Our canoe will be available for you to use. Paddles and life jackets are provided.
Please do not leave the paddles in the sun or in a place where they might blow
into the water in a strong breeze. Storing paddles in a dry, shady place when not
in use will prolong their life. If you bring a boat by trailer you can launch it at one
of the many marinas around the lake. The closest to Pt. Comfort with a public
launch ramp is Fischer’s Marina, about a half mile down on Pilot Knob Road
NEW POLICY AS OF 2016. Garbage pick-up is every Monday.
There are two cans for regular garbage and one can for recyclables which are kept
near the street in front of the white garage door. The can with the yellow lid is for recycling.
Recycling includes all plastics (1-7), glass, metal and paper. It all goes into the one can together.
The new cans are large and supposed to be raccoon proof. If you have more garbage
or recycling than will fit in the cans when you leave, please take it with you.
Do not leave food other than condiments and spices in the refrigerator or cabinets.
There are no fires allowed on Pt. Comfort. If you would like to have a fire outdoors,
please use the bar-b-que grill or metal yard pit. Please Do Not dump ashes or
partially used charcoal on the point. Bag it and put it out for the trash.
Do Not cut or chop off any limbs/trees, dead or living for fire wood or any purposes.
Bring some warm clothing. It can get chilly at night on the lake even in midsummer.
You may want to bring sheets and towels to save you the effort of washing ours
while you are on vacation. Also bring fire wood and kindling if you want to build a fire in
the bar-b-que grill or metal yard pit.
Due to pervasiveness of cell phones and the good reception on the point, there is no
longer a land line at Point Comfort. The address at Point Comfort is
2003 Camp Andrews Way,
Pilot Knob, NY 12844
We do not have a mail box or post office box. Your best
bet for receiving mail is to have it directed to general delivery, Katskill Bay 12844.
The post office is two miles south of Pt. Comfort on the left (east) side of the road.
The beach is an ideal spot for small children, because they can build in the sand
and play in the shallow water. The drop-off is extremely gradual. It is especially
nice early in the morning and late in the day. If you leave a car at the
beach parking lot overnight, you may get ticketed or towed. It is important
not to swim around to the beach from the point or back. It undermines
the life guards who try to discourage beach swimmers from trespassing.
We don't want to encourage the public from the beach to swim to the point.

city of Glens Falls. You get there by driving south on route 9L into Glens Falls
and continue on Hudson Street for 2 blocks. The hospital is on your left.

It is very important that you leave the house inside and out clean.
If the house is not clean when you arrive please call Corey @ 540-808-7618.
You may have gotten there before the cleaners if they have something that held them up.
Please leave the house clean, dishes done, bed rooms tidy, all trash put in the cans outside,
the outside grounds picked up - litter free, and everything in it's place.
The tap water comes directly from the lake. It is clean and delicious, and we drink it.
