About the property

- 3 bedroom, one full bathroom, sleeps 7 comfortably, poss. up to 14*

This log-style cottage comes with a private sandy beach on the stunningly beautiful Hague Bay on northern Lake George. The house is set back about 200 feet from the beach. The first 100 feet by the beach is a grassy meadow, good for rest or play. The town of Hague is under a mile away, with 20 minute drive to Bolton Landing, 40 minutes to Lake George Village. Crystal clear water, close to islands and other great boating and swimming spots. Our renters return year after year.

We do not have a dock, but a mooring is available. There is a boat launch in the center of Hague. This is an unheated cottage, available only from the middle of May until the middle of October.

We have a gas grill.

Children and well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The walk from the house to our private beach takes about two minutes. First you walk a short way down a path through the woods, then flat across our beautiful meadow that leads up to the beach.

Neighbor houses are not visible from our house. They are visible (just barely) from the meadow, and the house on the north side is visible from our beach, but is somewhat back in the trees so it does not detract.

We rent only for full weeks.

This is a simple, cabin-like cottage. It is very nice, as long as that is the style of vacation you are looking for. We love it. We provide blankets, quilts, and pillows for four people. You need to bring sheets, pillow cases, and towels, and bring extra blankets and pillows if your group is 5-7 people. (Seven is our maximum group size.) There is a gas grill. There is an aluminum canoe available, but you will need to bring your own paddles and life jackets. There is a boat launch 3/4 mile away from the cottage, in the center of Hague.

A Week On Lake George

  • 5 of 5

The accomodations were exactly as described. The rustic cabin was nestled a short distance down on a side of a bluff. The view from the back deck was spectacular. If you are seeking an opportunity to get from all the distractions and demands of modern technology, then this would be the place for you. It rained our first evening there, we found ourselves playing a board game. It promoted great family togetherness.

Having waterfront access, we had the ooportunity to moor our boat just off the beach. We enjoyed a balnace of fishing, swimming and pulling the kids on a tube behind the boat. We also brought a couple of kayaks which allowed for liesurely paddling and clsoe exploration of islands and inlets.

The town of Hague offered a quaint general store with home made baked goods. A wal-mart super center was close by in Ticonderoga for anything else you may have left at home.

Lake George Village was only a pleasant 30 minute drive along the shore of the Lake to the south. We spent an evening in the village browsing and purchasing souveniers. There was a free concert in Shepard Park which is bulit into the side of a hill. Behind the stage you can see the gentle rolling waves of the lake as the night sky settles in.

This Adirondak setting certainly offered a wealth of opportunities to simply relax or activley pursue outdoor activities. While my wife and son fished one day. My teen aged daughters and I clibed to the summit of Prospect Mountain in Lake George. The views were spectacular and the sense of accomplishment that came with climbing the mountain was priceless.

My eldest daughter, Katherine sought an additional hiking experience. So, a few miles to the south we ventured up Five MIle Mountain. The trail was rough in spots, albeit, manageable. Upon reaching a lean to at the summit, not only did we sit and enjoy the vistas of the lake below, we enjoyed the breeze and eating blue berries which were abundant.

Saturday morning we had ample time to clean up and pack before enjoying one last swim in the clean waters of Lake George. We swam and splashed about. Soon it was time to make the journey home. Lasting memories of yet another great family vacation for steve, Patty, Katherine, Christopher and Stephanie were left to set with the sun on Lake George. Memories that I am sure will be talked about for years to come.

Lake George is known as the Queen of North American lakes. It has crystal clear water and is surrounded by mountains. 32 miles long and averaging about two miles wide, it feels something like a fjord. The surrounding Adirondack area is beautiful, with places to hike, horseback ride, visit rivers, and numerous other attractions. Hague Bay is especially attractive because it is less developed than the southern end of the lake, but just as scenic. Great for people who like a mixture of activity and quiet.

Ski: Our cabin is not winterized.
