Lake George vacation rentals

Old-school glamour in Lake George

The Adirondack Mountains are no stranger to entertaining visitors—these stunning peaks have been enticing travelers for over 200 years with their scenic views and tranquil ambience. Lake George, in particular, has a well-established reputation as the stomping ground of the rich and famous, with dynasties like the Roosevelts and the Vanderbilts former fixtures. Today, there are Lake George vacation rentals for all tastes and budgets, so it’s simpler than ever to live the high life. Whether you choose a comfortable cabin or a luxurious condo, you’ll be just moments away from well-maintained hiking trails, exciting amusement parks, and majestic sunsets across crystal-clear waters.

A bird's-eye view of Lake George

A walk around the shores of Lake George is a great way to admire upstate New York’s natural beauty, but hot air balloon rides take it to the next level. You’ll spot the sun glimmering over the still waters of the lake and see the dense forests of nearby Hudson Pointe Nature Preserve. These rides are a hugely popular pastime in the area, so much so that the Adirondack Balloon Festival is held here annually. Marvel at the sight of dozens of colorful balloons taking to the air, or opt for a parasailing excursion to add extra energy to your sky-high adventure.

Lake George's historic haunts

Located at the end of Lake George, Fort William Henry Museum was built on the site of a massacre by Native Americans, which was famously depicted in "The Last of the Mohicans." An expert dressed in 18th-century military garb operates guided tours, while kids will enjoy joining the King’s Army for a day. They’ll receive a uniform and model musket and, when their service is complete, a certificate and payment in the form of a coin. From spring through fall, Spirits of History Ghost Tours add extra chills for ghost-hunters and thrill-seekers.
