Boat docking for a small (18-20 feet) is reserved for your use.  There is a marina one block away for boat rentals. Our dock is shared with the owner and 2 other boats. The boat dockers are strictly 'load and go.' They do not use the dock except to access their boats. They are very friendly people, and respect your privacy.

 We are a one block walk to Hague Beach, boat launch and park, which is a great spot for swimming, picnics, etc. There is a lifeguard on duty at the Beach. The Hague Market, a unique Adirondack General Store, and the Hague Firehouse Restaurant are a short walk away. (Please note that businesses in the area often operate seasonally and hours vary)

About Sandra Rust

Thank you for considering our Island View home. We enjoy meeting so many nice people who love Lake George as much as we do. We will do everything possible to make certain you have a great vacation at Lake George. See you at the Lake!

Sandra Rust purchased this house in 1995

Why Sandra Rust chose Hague

The northern part of Lake George is the most beautiful part of the lake, as it is quieter and slower paced. Bruce grew up camping on the nearby islands with his family, and it is a dream come true to have the good fortune to call a piece of Lake George home. Hague is a wonderful town to spend a day or a lifetime...

What makes this house unique

Our home is located directly on Lake George. The house sits less than 10 feet from the lake! The views are breathtaking, and the lake is spectacular anytime of the day or night. Gorgeous sunrises and moonrises are not to be missed. We are just minutes by boat to the wonderful Waltonian Island group. We love being able to walk to the town beach for summer concerts, the Hague waterfall and brook for peace and serenity, and the Hague General store to meet friends and pick up supplies and maybe a great pie!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highly recommend staying at the Island View! We have stayed with Bruce & Sandy for many years with our family and we loved every minute. You couldn't ask for two nicer people to rent from they are the best!!! They spoiled us so much we had to buy our own house on Lake George so we can see them more often. I give the Island View 5 stars!

Our Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have imagined that Island View would have become such a special place in our lives! The first year we made arrangements sight unseen, and now, years later can't imagine life without this time. Both of you are so special to us. As you know, our family has made history here! So special! See you next year.

Good times at Island View on Lake George

  • 5 of 5

What a nice cottage! We were delighted by the old-fashioned North Woods decor and the beautiful setting on Lake George. We were right on the water, with a great dock and clean, sandy-bottomed water to enjoy. The cottage was clean and well-maintained and the hosts couldn't have been more friendly and cooperative with our needs. Great hiking, water sports, restaurants and touristy destinations like Ft Ticonderoga nearby.

We welcome your return stay.
