Overview

Ticonderoga House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

Located on the calm water of northern Lake George, our camp offers 100 feet of lakefront property free from heavy boat traffic and safe for daily water activity. Sit back in the evening on a deck overlooking the still water while peeping frogs seranade to the setting sun over the westward Adirondacks. Easy access to the historical village of Ticonderoga with sites such as Fort Ticonderoga and Mt. Defiance. Local shops and restaurants are located throughout the village and staples can be purchased at Walmart, Rite Aid, Stewarts and Dollar Store. Close proximity to Lake George Village to the south and Lake Placid, home of the 1980 Olympics, to the north.

This is our home. With a splash of southwestern color mixed with some Adirondack flavor, this camp will beckon an 'at home' coziness. We'll provide your daily needs and opportunity for relaxation, you provide the rest; sit back and take a deep breath or take full advantage of all the North Country can offer.

Ideal location for fishing and tournaments. Trailor space available and boathouse slip accessible directly to lake.

Gorgeous Quiet Location On The Lake And Good Value, We'd Love To Return

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a family lakefront vacation on a budget? I can surely recommend this property. The location is gorgeous and quiet, and the perfect spot to enjoy a good old fashioned summer with lots of time spent outdoors.

The house is in Ticonderoga at the very very narrow tip of Lake George, in a spot where motor boats and jet skis are limited to 5mph, meaning they are quietly making their way home to their docks, not speeding around. The water is quite shallow, maybe no more than 4 feet at most in this whole section, so I felt really safe about sending my kids out to enjoy the water on the canoe (with life jackets of course). The area is lush and green (there is summer rain which we experienced) with a lovely mountain rising on the other side of the lake, and we enjoyed just hanging out on the lawn, fishing, canoeing, and making bonfires in the fire pit at night. We spent five nights here and didn't even make it to see the local attractions like Fort Ticonderoga which looks really great. We did however make it to WalMart which is a very convenient 7 minute drive away, and a good rainy day activity.

There is a marina just across the lake, a short drive, where I believe one can rent motor boats, and one might also like to take the car ferry to Vermont as a fun day activity. Lake George Village, the packed tourist area is a good 45 minute drive away, but possibly interesting if you like to see a ton of people and lots of tourist related businesses. It is interesting to see how large the lake really is so I wasn't sorry that we stopped there on our way down to the Catskills.

Your entrance ticket to Fort Ticonderoga includes a pass to visit Mount Defiance, with a view looking over Lake Champlain, so do make a point of visiting that too! We hope to do it next time.

If you are relying on some kind of GPS to get around, print a map before heading to this location, as we had no cell service and had to knock on someone's door! Fortunately he was very friendly and looked it up for us on Google maps, phew!

The house itself is not new, say built in the late 60s, but it is clean and for the price really nothing to complain about. We appreciated the washer and dryer, the air conditioning units in the bedrooms and next to the dining room table, and the friendly owner! If we are every in the Adirondacks again, which I hope we will be as the area is truly gorgeous I don't think we'll be able to resist not returning to this special spot.

Our lakefront home nestles between scenic Lake George and the Adirondacks. Its accessability to winter/summer skiing, golf, boating, hiking, shopping, and nightly entertainment is all within a 60 mile radius.

We are located on the northernmost portion of Lake George known as the outlet which is quiet and safe for swimming and non-powered boating as it is a designated 'No-Wake' zone. Power boats can gain access to the open lake by travelling a short distance south where you can enjoy skiing, jetskiing, sailing, etc.

Must see attractions are Fort Ticonderoga, Ausable Chasm, Lake George Ferry and Paddle Boat Tours, Lake George Village and Outlet Shopping, Great Escape Park, Adirondack Extreme Course, Ridin High Dude Ranch, and The Best Fourth in the North 4th of July Celebration, to name a few.

The LaChute River Trail runs alongside the LaChute river which empties from Lake George and meanders its way to Lake Champlain. This hike takes you through a portion of Ticonderoga including Montcalm St. where local shopping, restaurants, and attractions are found.

The Adirondacks are lush and bustling with life during the spring and summer months, are brilliant in color during the fall foliage, and are blanketed with pristine snow in the winter. Our home will provide a warm welcome in any season.
