About shawn mcloughlin
Our family has been coming to Silver Bay for 5 generations, which shows you what a special place it is. Although our children are grown now, they enjoy returning for special holidays and summer vacations. My family has been involved in conservation and preservation of the Lake George shoreline and in the stewardship of the Silver Bay YMCA, which is unique treasure of the Adirondacks.

Why shawn mcloughlin chose Silver Bay
This property is remarkably serene and the lake views are breathtaking. There is nothing more relaxing than gazing out over the lake from the porch. We are only the second owners of this historic property, built in 1903. This home was crafted using local timbers and materials in the true Adirondack style. (For example, local beech bark was harvested and soaked before being applied as shingles.) It has been lovingly maintained using authentic building materials to maintain its architectural integrity while making updates to make the home comfortable for modern family living.
What makes this House unique
The Silver Bay YMCA is an incredible asset available to renters who can purchase a daily or weekly pass to take advantage of its multitude of services. (see: https://silverbay.org/membership-day-use/) Additional services available for a fee (must be arranged in advance): weekly laundry, housekeeping, grocery delivery and babysitting.
