Please email the owner for the link to the Dawn O'Day homepage which has over additional pictures of the home, property and lake views.

Dawn O'Day sits just on the edge of the Adirondack Park and was originally a summer camp which was rebuilt over 40 years ago to expand the home and make it into a year round family residence. It was named "Dawn O'Day" because of its great sunrises over Buck Mountain but it also has stunning sunsets looking east toward Bolton Landing. This home sits right on the lakeshore and is surrounded by over one acre of woodlands. It is in a private residential community called Camp Andrews so it is very quiet and secure. The property embraces its surroundings providing a sense of peace and harmony. It is a perfect place for individuals or families who like privacy while enjoying breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding Adirondack mountains - all only steps away.

The home has two levels. Both levels of the home have commanding views of the lake which is just a few feet away.

Meet the Owner(s)

About Us: Appreciate your interest in "Dawn O'Day" which has over 310 feet of waterfront on "Point Comfort" on the east shore of Lake George. Our home is in a private residential area called "Camp Andrews" which borders thousands of acres of Forever Wild Adirondack Forest Preserve. The home has been part of our family for over 80 years. It sits among woodlands on over an acre of land and is perfect for individuals and families enjoying breathtaking views of the lake & mountains.

Why we think you will enjoy staying in Pilot Knob: The Adirondack Park is an incredible place. It's a place dominated by beautiful scenery of lakes, lush forests, mountains and small towns. There is no other landscape in the world that offers the combination of abundant water, hundreds of mountains, and a great unbroken forest. The diverse landscape has made the Adirondacks a popular place since the American Civil War. For over 150 years, the wildness of the Adirondacks has set it apart and many have worked to keep the Park on the right path

Why our property is special: Comments from our guests: Dawn O'Day is a little piece of heaven on Earth! We created wonderful lasting memories here and look forward to visiting again soon. The views were amazing, the cabin was perfect. Grown-ups relaxed, children played happily...we were able to really enjoy quality family time & we are grateful. This has become our place of family gathering and relaxation & we couldn't have asked for much more. Your cabin is so lovely, view of lake wonderful...beautiful day & night sky.
