SMOKING
As is usually the case, there is no smoking is permitted in the unit. Smokers may enjoy one of four outside locations (two decks, one open one enclosed; the front porch; and the backyard. I enjoy the backyard in the

DO I NEED A PASS?
A pass for beach, pool, or dock areas is required, and will be found in the unit. Access to the swimming pool is by PIN code, and a PIN number will be furnished to you by the managing agent upon your arrival. Instructions will be given with lease, and is available in the book located on the kitchen counter when you arrive. This book will help you with directions on how to use some appliances, TV, etc. Bathroom Access for both the swimming areas is by key.  This key will be conveniently located in the unit.  Also readily available will be the emergency phone numbers and other important information that you might want at your fingertips.

CAN I BRING MY OWN BOAT?
Yes, there is a beautiful sheltered cove and private dock. Green Harbour does not have its own launch ramp, so you will need to make arrangements with a local marina to put in/take out. The length of the private dock is twenty feet. If your boat is longer than that, unfortunately, we would not be able to accommodate your boat. Discuss with me when we speak if you have specific questions, I know of launch sites where they could accommodate your boat and they will store your trailer.

IS THE UNIT ON THE WATER'?
Can you walk out the back door and be on the lake's edge, no. Green Harbour units are to the west of Route 9, halfway up the mountain. That gives them a panoramic view of the lake and mountain; as you see from the pictures. You do not get these views when you are on the lake. Green Harbour has a tremendous private waterfront beach and private dockage, as you can also see in the pictures. There are restroom facilities and you can take a walk along a quiet road along the lake.

GETTING TO THE WATERFRONT
The Green Harbour waterfront is within walking distance. HOWEVER the hill back up is so steep most people prefer to drive. So, drive down to Route 9 (the main road), and make a left. Almost immediately on your right you will see another Green Harbour sign. Make a right there, and follow it down to the beach , it takes about 2 minutes and there is plenty of parking, remember your cooler. The boat dock is also right next to the beach. There are some watercrafts for you to use.

DIRECTIONS
From New York City and south, take Route 87 North. At Albany, make sure you stay on 87 North in the direction of Montreal. Technically you are exiting the New York State Thruway here (exit 24). Continue on 87 North (aka the 'Northway') to exit 22. Bear left to Diamond Point/ Bolton Landing, make a left at the light. Proceed 1.9 miles m/l to the Green Harbour sign on your left, make left into driveway. (Use caution as the Green Harbour sign is set back a bit from the road). Continue up the steep hill, bearing right all the way, until you hit the forest line. Bear left to #33. The unit has an Adirondack-style sign with my last name on it.

THE DRIVE
I live in Westchester and have made it frequently in 3-1/2 hours. Never over four. From Manhattan, it's about 210 miles. Of course if you live north of NYC, it's even less. When you drive to Green Harbour you will
spend all but the last two miles on the thruway/northway. Traffic can appear to be heavy but you will almost always be moving along at 65, and hopefully will arrive ready to enjoy yourself.

There is a Price Chopper to the right off the main road in Lake George Village and a Topps at the end of Bolton Landing, it is much better, but a little further.  There is also a WalMart nearby; directions are provided in an information letter you will receive approximately two weeks before your stay begins.
