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.

Cliff Cottage is a rare find...a vintage Lake George cottage with newer amenities, such as a new full bathroom in the master bedroom, and new windows. There is still LOTS of unique charm!

Cliff Cottage is directly across Lakeshore Drive from Lake George, overlooking the lake and featuring a screened porch and 3 decks, all with breathtaking views of Lake George, 'The Queen of American Lakes.'

Cliff Cottage does not have direct lake access. Swimming and lake access is via the Hague Public Beach, approximately 1 mile away. The lakefront across from the Cottage is private property. There is a nearby marina if you wish to rent a power boat, canoe or kayaks. Rogers Rock State Park is a short drive away, and has a beautiful beach and picnic area.

The decks have lots of outdoor furniture, picnic table with umbrella, and gas grill.

The living room has large french doors opening to the screened porch. Walking into the house from the back door and looking out to the screened porch and the Lake George beyond is an incredible sight. The living room is open to the dining area.

The second downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a private 1/2 bath.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I went to Lake George as a graduation trip, to spend some quality secluded time together. Cliff Cottage could not have been a more perfect location. We were so excited when we arrived and saw our house up on the cliff as pictures really don't do it justice. The inside is comfortable, functional, and even historical, but we really spent most of our time on the incredible porch because we could not get enough of the view. There was a lot to do in Hague without having to go very far, including boat rentals and hiking trails which were right behind the house. Sandy and Bruce were great hosts, and they really made the house and experience special for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay! We are fortunate to have a great marina/boat rental nearby in Hague. Dockside Landing Marina takes great care of our guests for motorboat, canoe or kayak rental. The nearby islands are beautifully scenic and a great spot for swimming and picnicking. This group of young women were great guests, and took great care with our home. They left with wonderful memories.

Perfect weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cliff Cottage was a perfect location for our weekend visit to Lake George. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed coffee each morning on the porch with a perfect Lake view. Sandra was a perfect host and the cottage was perfectly charming. We will definitely revisit Cliff Cottage when we are back in the area.

Wonderful Get-Away .... Beautiful lake, island & mountain views

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic anniversary get-away location. Although the cottage is situated across the shore road from Lake George and without water access, the incredible elevated views and comfortable rooms more than made up for it. We recommend setting the alarm for 4 am to watch the first light on the horizon across the lake and to hear the choir of birds in the surrounding trees. We had planned to go out for dinners but cancelled each night to further enjoy the decks, the views and the evening air. Sandy & Bruce were wonderful hosts. We can't wait to get back ... and bring family & friends to enjoy this piece of God's creation!

Amazing hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Bruce and Sandy are the kindest of hosts! We stayed for a few days during the week and had a lovely time. Sandy and Bruce instructed us to meet them at a easy to find location a few mins from the cottage and the led us to the house. They gave us a brief tour/history of the cottage and left us with some restaurant recommendations. The house is super cozy, especially the back porch which is where we spent all our time. It's just such a pleasant view! No regrets!!

Lake George Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two teenage sons just returned from a week at Cliff Cottage. We especially liked the location and all the activities we were able to do. We enjoyed the views from the porch and outdoor decks. Right behind the cottage are hiking paths with incredible views of the lake. In our opinion the northern end of the lake is much nicer and less hectic. Sandra and Bruce were very welcoming and always available for any questions we had.

The people at Dockside Marina were very accommodating as well. All in all it was a great week with many fond memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay! We're glad you took advantage of lots the Lake George and Hague area offers. We are indeed partial to peaceful Northern Lake George. Memories of your stay will always include Bruce recognizing Tony from TV, and our early Saturday morning trip to the Ti Airport, as well as other "adventures!" We appreciate your recommendation of Dockside Landing Marina. Future guests will find this helpful. We are fortunate to have them right here in Hague. Thank you again!
