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
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...
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!
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!
Beautiful location on Lake George. If you've never been to the lake, Island View is the perfect place! Directly on the water with stunning views. The house is a great place for a large group (although it was only my husband and I). The downstairs has ample dining and lounging space, the upstairs has a full bathroom as well as a mater bedroom with a new full bathroom and the most spectacular view of the lake, also a small porch to enjoy the view, along with 3 additional bedrooms. Outside there is more than enough room, picnic table, patio dining table, and a fire pit (which we enjoyed)! The house has with everything you need - bbq, cable tv, wifi, air conditioners, kayaks - kitchen is fully stocked. Sandy and Bruce are wonderful. Sandy was prompt in replying to any questions we had. They greeted us upon our arrival, gave us a tour of the house and property, helped us with docking our boat and provided us with information on the area. We have been vacationing in Hague for 30+ years and would highly recommend Island View to anyone!
We really enjoyed our stay at Island View, the house is very comfortable and is equipped with everything that you need. The location of the house offers the best of both worlds, we were directly on the lake, yet had the woods right behind us for hiking. They have kayaks/life vests available for use by the guests, which was nice to be able to use them to explore the shoreline as well as the islands. There are several trails within a short driving distance, we chose the Lean-to trail, 5.2 miles round trip, very enjoyable hike. We also enjoyed a trip to Fort Ticonderoga, it's amazing to learn about history right where it happened. Then there's Sandy, she is very nice and a wealth of knowledge for the area, I appreciated her taking the time to answer my questions. We would definitely go back if the opportunity presents itself again.
Island View is a beautiful location that offers a nice, serene getaway. We had it all… glorious setting, pristine water for swimming and kayaking, plus a fire pit for smores and warmth at night when the evening got cooler after sunset. We woke to the lake view and were even blessed with a full moon over it a couple of nights. Boat rental was within walking distance and a discount comes with the rental.
Sandy and Bruce were friendly and very responsive hosts. They made our stay as comfortable as possible. Their kitchen comes well stocked. Everything we needed for cooking was there. We really only had to bring towels, sheets and ourselves. We had a wonderful week and would recommend Island View to anyone interested in a lovely lake vacation.
Great location, very roomy very clean house, Nice large dock excellent fishing , owners are very accommodating and super friendly.... And that's the reason why I am booked for July... My daughter can't get enough of fishing .... Catching them one after another
We live about 1 hr south of lake george and wanted to get away a few nights for my parents 50 anniversary! The owners are very kind people And
Care a lot about their property it's obvious. I would gladly return. Location amazing right on water close to town of hague. It's a
Great option because less touristy then lake george village area. Sandy met us upon arrival to go over details of house. It is a great place for families with kids we have a baby, 3 and 5 year old. Air conditioner for me a must and 3/4 rooms have it:) I would say it sleeps 5-6 comfortably. Master sweet bed very comfortable. We went after Labor Day when stay didn't have to be a week which we like since we live in area.thanks so much for opening up your house to us!!!!
Awesome place! Cannot beat location lakeshore with dock for boat and swimming. Great for kayaking also. Firepit and large patio area immediately adjacent to lake make mornings and evenings that much more enjoyable.
