House Features

Imagine an Adirondack home where  all the window treatments were   skillfully woven by nature to give you a constantly changing view of Lake George and the Adirondack mountains. Shimmering silver water, blue green mountains, lacy pine, and technicolor stars all work their magic to brighten your days and inspire your nights. This is Silver Bay, a place that has been attracting visitors for over a century. And this is a home that whispers “welcome” in every room and Adirondack detail.

First built by a New York surgeon in 1917, the original house has been completely remodeled and renovated by its third owners, Millie and John Porpora to preserve its Adirondack heritage while  delivering all the creature comforts and amenities you expect on a well deserved vacation. From comfortable beds, to granite counters, to well stocked books and Wi-Fi, everything you need to relax is all right here.

This home will  lower your blood pressure, banish stress, and delight your senses as it transports you and your family to a world of relaxation and peace. Curl up with a book, sit by the fireplace, dine al fresco on the terrace. No matter what you enjoy doing --from hiking to water sports to discovering Silver Bay Association and the many nearby attractions --- staying with us will make it all worth while.

Which is why so many of our guests keep returning to us every year.  They consider this their second home too. We hope you will enjoy your vacation with us in the Spring, Summer or Fall.
