This beautiful two-story A-frame offers spectacular views of northern Lake George from both inside and out! Upstairs, a comfortable living space with fireplace, dining area, and open kitchen features glass doors across the full width of the house, opening onto a full deck overlooking the Lake. Two bedrooms and a full bath complete the upstairs, while downstairs offers two more bedrooms and full bath, a laundry room, and a workroom. Fully winterized, this lovely modern house is perfect year-round as a base for summer swimming, hiking, and boating. winter skiing, or fall leaf season. Lake access for swimming only. The house does not have a dock; boat put-in access is available nearby.
Swimming, Boating and Hiking: A path directly across from the house provides swimming access to Lake George. Children must be supervised; swimmers must climb in and out from a large, flat rock. Public beaches are available at both Hague village, 2.5 miles south, and (for a small entry fee) Rogers Rock State Campground, 1 mile north. Boat put-ins are also available at both places for a fee. Boats and jet skis can be rented at Dockside Marina in Hague.
The Adirondacks is full of wonderful hiking trails, including nearby a trail to Jabe's Pond, a small hidden paradise filled with loons; the Tongue Mountain trail that leads to fabulous Lake George views; and hikes up the mountains to Sunrise Peak and Inspiration Point, for experienced climbers.
Other Activities: An 18-hole golf course is open to the public at Ticonderoga Country Club just a few miles north. Horseback riding can be found at Diamond Point, about 25 minutes south, and Chestertown. Other points of interest include Fort Ticonderoga, a restored site just 10 minutes north, the Adirondack Museum in Blue Lake, and the honky tonk wonders of Lake George Village. A drive into the Adirondacks will reward with terrific views of the High Peaks; at Lake Placid, don't miss the John Brown historic house, or the elevator ride to the top of the Olympic ski jump tower!

I fell in love with northern Lake George as a teenage visitor to Silver Bay, where I worked during college summers. When I married, I introduced my California-bred husband to the Lake. He loved it just as much as I do, and after many summers with our daughters at Silver Bay, we bought this beautiful home in Hague,
We love the combination of beauty and quiet at the northern end of the Lake--amazing views, wonderful hiking and canoeing, and the charming village of Hague. We love this house in particular because it is large enough to accommodate our family (three grown daughters, two spouses, one grandchild!) and cozy enough to allow us all to be together in the open living/ dining space and the huge deck overlooking the Lake.
Northern Lake George offers the best of both worlds--a quiet family spot with easy accessibility to the charm of Bolton Landing's shops, the theme parks and bustle of Lake George Village, and the outlets of Queensbury (all between 20 and 35 minutes south), and fabulous downhill skiing at Gore Mt. to the west. Hague is centrally located for swimming and boating, with nearby boat and jetski rentals, as well as Adirondack hikes, museums, and high peak climbs. Golf is available five minutes north, and the beaches of both Roger's Rock State Park and Hague Village are open to the public. Historic Fort Ticonderoga is 10 minutes north, near the Lake Champlain Ferry to Vermont. Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks, 10 minutes south, offers program memberships and a multitude of family activities.
Other Activities: Cross country skiing
Golf: Ticonderoga Country Club course open to the public, 5 minutes north
Ski: Gore Mountain, about 45 minutes drive
