We are in the quiet hamlet of Hague, in the North Basin of Lake George. Inside or out, you are literally steps from the lake. Here you can relax and forget the rest of the world.
This is a two story house, with the living/dining area and kitchen on the first floor, and three bedrooms, a sleeping/lounging porch and 2 bathrooms on the second floor.
There is a large brick patio, and an 8 foot wide dock. The patio has 2 tables, comfortable outdoor furniture, a gas grill and an outdoor fireplace. Wood is provided for campfires! The entire property is beautifully planted with flowers.
Boat docking for a small (18-20 feet) is reserved for your use. There is a marina one block away for boat rentals. Our dock is shared with the owner and 2 other boats. The boat dockers are strictly 'load and go.' They do not use the dock except to access their boats. They are very friendly people, and respect your privacy. We are a one block walk to Hague Beach and park, which is a great spot for swimming, picnics, etc. There is a lifeguard on duty at the Beach.
The first floor consists of a great room living and dining area. There is a queen-size sleep sofa in the living room.

Sandra Rust purchased this house in 1995
The northern part of Lake George is the most beautiful part of the lake, as it is quieter and slower paced. Bruce grew up camping on the nearby islands with his family, and it is a dream come true to have the good fortune to call a piece of Lake George home. Hague is a wonderful town to spend a day or a lifetime...
Our home is located directly on Lake George. The house sits less than 10 feet from the lake! The views are breathtaking, and the lake is spectacular anytime of the day or night. Gorgeous sunrises and moonrises are not to be missed. We are just minutes by boat to the wonderful Waltonian Island group. We love being able to walk to the town beach for summer concerts, the Hague waterfall and brook for peace and serenity, and the Hague General store to meet friends and pick up supplies and maybe a great pie!
Highly recommend staying at the Island View! We have stayed with Bruce & Sandy for many years with our family and we loved every minute. You couldn't ask for two nicer people to rent from they are the best!!! They spoiled us so much we had to buy our own house on Lake George so we can see them more often. I give the Island View 5 stars!
We live about 1 hr south of lake george and wanted to get away a few nights for my parents 50 anniversary! The owners are very kind people And
Care a lot about their property it's obvious. I would gladly return. Location amazing right on water close to town of hague. It's a
Great option because less touristy then lake george village area. Sandy met us upon arrival to go over details of house. It is a great place for families with kids we have a baby, 3 and 5 year old. Air conditioner for me a must and 3/4 rooms have it:) I would say it sleeps 5-6 comfortably. Master sweet bed very comfortable. We went after Labor Day when stay didn't have to be a week which we like since we live in area.thanks so much for opening up your house to us!!!!
Awesome place! Cannot beat location lakeshore with dock for boat and swimming. Great for kayaking also. Firepit and large patio area immediately adjacent to lake make mornings and evenings that much more enjoyable.
We were fortunate to find Island View in Hague when we were searching for a place for the whole family to enjoy vacation together. Island View is lovely. The pictures reflect it perfectly. View is spectacular! The owners are very accommodating. Beds comfy. Clean and neat. The outside flowers give the house that "cozy cottage " feel. We enjoyed the kayaks that are available for renters' use. I would recommend at stay at Island View.
Highly recommend this beautiful lake side home! The location is ideal-direct waterfront! Quiet town of Hague allows you to really relax! The owners are very prompt in responding to questions , provide great details about the home and the area , and are available throughout your stay to help whenever needed! The kitchen is well stocked for all of your cooking needs! We loved the outdoor space this home offered!
Island View has been our summer family getaway for a few years now. With each year we have come to appreciate it more and more, but this past summer Island View became the place where one of our sons asked his long-time girlfriend to marry him. Under the stars , at the end of the dock, on a beautiful summer's night , he asked and she accepted. We woke up that morning to another incredible sunrise and their good news. He chose that spot on purpose, because of the memories they'd already shared on the Lake.
We love it here! The views are spectacular, the house itself so comfortable and always being upgraded. There is ample room to spread out or be together. The lake is at your doorstep. We spend most nights around the fire pit . You couldn't ask for better hosts than Bruce and Sandy- they are attentive to detail and want nothing more than for their guests to enjoy the ultimate lake experience , but at this point we feel more like family. We knew right away that Island View was a special place, now it's even more so.
We have been going to the lake house for three years. The location is perfect and the views unbelievable. We spend our week relaxing on the dock, swimming at the islands, walking through the town, and fires lakeside at night. The house feels like it your own home; comfy furniture, cozy décor, extremely well stocked large kitchen, large living room, big master bedroom with incredible view of the lake, and surrounded by beautiful flowers. We fell in love with the house at first sight three years ago and couldn't imagine a summer not at the lake.
