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 first floor features a screened porch, living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom with tub/shower, and two bedrooms, one bedroom having a private 1/2 bath.

The Screened Porch has floor to ceiling screens on 3 sides, providing a miles long panoramic view of the lake and mountains. Both sides of the porch open to decks on either side of the house. The porch has comfortable chairs, a dining table and a sofa/twins day bed. In the morning you can watch the sunrise and in the evening relax to the moonrise and starry skies. 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.

One bedroom has two twin beds. This bedroom opens to the outside porch and has beautiful lake views.

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

There are air conditioners in the bedrooms and main floor living area.

The cottage is approximately 1 mile from the center of Hague, with the Hague Public Beach, Boat Launch, New Hague Market, Fishing Pier, Post Office and Firehouse Restaurant/Bar.

Cliff Cottage has a cozy 'summer at the lake' feeling and is the perfect spot for taking a break from today's hectic life. Relax and enjoy the splendor of Lake George and the Adirondacks while making Cliff Cottage your vacation home away from home.

Amazing Lake View - Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Plenty of room. We especially loved the screened in porch that overlooks the lake. Even though it rained while we were there, we enjoyed hanging out in the porch area and watching the lake. The cute town of Hague is nearby with a good restaurant. Definitely a great way to be at Lake George without all the crowds.

No need to ever leave the back porch.

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic find for our lake George vacation. The porch and decks offer fantastic views and we spent a lot of time hanging out there. The breeze through the windows kept the house very comfortable and the sound of the lapping wave at night was a treat to fall asleep to. The house itself is has a lot of character inside and is quaint and cottagey, which is what we were looking for. The kitchen a little dated, but functional, and it would seem out of place if they were to replace everything with modern high end kitchen stuff. The owners are very accommodating and easy to work with. We will be trying to plan another vacation here ASAP.

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!
