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 (shower only), 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, two grandchildren!) and cozy enough to allow us all to be together in the open living/ dining space and the huge deck overlooking the Lake.
This cabin is the perfect place for a weekend away - it can be as relaxing or as adventurous as you want! The property was in excellent condition - all utilities, appliances, etc. worked perfectly. The handcrafted tables were beautiful. The fireplace was easy to use and there was more than enough room for our entire party of seven.
The view across Lake George is absolutely breathtaking from the cabin. Numerous hiking trails were nearby, with everything we could need a short drive away while still affording you a private, secluded stay if you want it.
The owner was an absolute pleasure to rent from, and we definitely look forward to spending time there again!
What a wonderful week we had in this beautiful home. The homeowner was very friendly and responded to any emails and inquiries very quickly. She was accommodating for any special needs we had. The house was clean and bright with breathtaking views from the very large deck. We spent most nights on the deck which can easily accommodate 10-15 people. With 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor, this is a great place for families traveling together who want a little privacy, but still want to be together. The entrance to the water was very slippery so we just went to the beach right down the road. It was perfect and the kids loved it.
Well equipped and spacious home for our weeks vacation this Summer. Views from the upstairs deck were terrific. I spent a lot of time on that deck admiring the view. The house was equipped with many amenities that made for a comfortable stay. The owner, Ginny, was very helpful with providing ideas and information for local activities. We spent our week hiking, boating, swimming and general site seeing. The lake access across the street was perfect for our kayak but be careful of the rocks. They can be quite slick. The lake is nice and quite on the North end. I enjoyed being away from the traffic, noise and hub bub of the Lake George Village. We would definitely consider booking here again.
The house is beautiful and the view as well. We found everything we needed and we enjoyed our stay. But, I knew it was far from the attractions in Lake George Village, but we realised it's a bit too far when you have kids and you want to go to attractions almost everyday. Also, there is no lawn where we can play.
But, I would recommend this house to anybody.
I rented this home for the view and I was not disappointed. You awake to beautiful sunsets over the lake and go to bed with gorgeous horizons. It is unfortunate that the property is on Rt 9 as you do hear occasional traffic noise when the windows are open but I do think it is hard to get the view without the street in this part of Lake George. The house was also very comfortable and spacious and provided everything we needed (pls note that there is not a king bed as another reviewer stated). We would definitely consider renting here again.
The owners accommodated us on very short notice and we were very pleased with our stay. There was a lot for my family (with 3 children) to love. The lake water is very clean, clear, and surprisingly warm - snorkeling 20 feet offshore we found bluegill nests protected by their fish dads. A very clean, sandy beach is ~1 mile away. Lots of games and puzzles to play with in the evening. No rowdy neighbors. I was a bit put off about the required cleaning and laundry on our day of departure, but with their industrial vacuum and large capacity washer/dryer it really wasn't a problem. The home is across the street from the lake and traffic noise interrupted some of the solitude, but I don't imagine there are any Lake George properties with lake access that wouldn't have road noise. We would happily stay here again - excellent for families with children.
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
