Welcome to 'Cliff Cottage' overlooking peaceful Northern Lake George in the quiet hamlet of Hague.
Living in Cliff Cottage is like being in a tree house overlooking Lake George and the Adirondack Mountains. The spectacular panoramic lake views are of one of the most beautiful spots on Lake George -the Waltonian Islands and Island Harbor. Our family began visiting Lake George in the early 1900's...camping on Temple Knoll Island! If this is your first visit to Lake George, we guarantee you will be captivated by its beauty. For returning visitors, we look forward to sharing our mutual love of Lake George and the Adirondack Mountains with you.
