About Frank and Carol Marceca

A bucket list dream of mine was to build a log cabin in the Adirondacks in the Lake George area. We love the lake, the mountain trails and streams, and the quiet of the area's wooded tall pine forest in the Northern Basin of Lake George. My wife Carol and I are happy we can share this wonderful hideaway with you and hope you love it as much as we do.

Frank and Carol Marceca purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Frank and Carol Marceca chose Hague

It's pretty cool to spend some time in an authentic log cabin, I think comfort and warmth are the best way's to describe it. Located in the rolling hills of Hague gives you that country feel, quiet and private, while having Rodgers Rock state park less than 1 mile away for boat launching, swimming, fishing and hiking...... as well as having Historic Ticonderoga just 6 miles away. Need to stay connected to the outside world? wifi is available ......

What makes this cabin unique

One of the most enjoyable things is waking up in our log cabin and just gazing at the pine walls and logs that support the structure. The staircase banister to the 2nd floor is made from pine spindles , much of it harvested from the property. Sitting on the deck on a clear night, turn off all the lights and experience "fire in the sky", like the late John Denver sang about so eloquently. Talking, playing games together forms bonds and brings back a way of life that will help direct your thinking to a time when life was more simple and fun!!!! LIVE, LOVE AND LAUGH.....ITS WHAT YOU DO AT THE CABIN!!!!

Cabin setting is just a few minutes ride to historic fort Ticonderoga where you can catch a revolutionary war re-enactment, or just tour the 'Fort' for a great site seeing and learning experiences. While in town, visit the many restaurants and stores with most anything you may need while in the Adirondacks. When your done in Ticonderoga, stop by the Wind Chill ice cream parlor and have what many call the best ice cream in New York State. Our public beach and boat launch is just 4.5 miles away, with a summer life guard on duty, and bathroom facilities. Just a short walk form the beach, is our small town USA main street with a general store, restaurant, churches, antiquing and night life. Lake George, with its crystal clean water,(homes around the lake get their drinking water from it) is a wonderful lake known as the Queen of the American Lakes. There is much to do, swimming, boating, diving, tubing, jet skiing, fishing, island hopping and picnicking on an island. After a fun filled day on the lake, watch the beautiful summer sunsets over the mountains. Take your time traveling to any of these destinations because the scenic ride and its beauty along Rt. 9 are not to be missed. Bolton Landing, about a 25 minute ride away, is a great place to shop and dine. Check out the museum in town to get a real feel of the history of the area. Vermont, only about 9 miles away, where you can cross Lake Champlain on a ferry boat and go ( Depending on the season) apple and Berry picking or just take a ride to one of the many towns and attractions like the Vermont teddy bear factory, or the Cabot cheese store and plant.

Loved the house and enjoyed lots of activities in the area

  • 5 of 5

We really like the style of traditional log houses. This vacation home had lots to offer beyond the romantic flair. The house itself is spacious and very well maintained. No modern amenities that you have to miss.

The area around invites for a lot of fun activities, from lake, to trails, to historic sites. The cabin worked well as the home base for all our trips and a great place to return to in the afternoon. We enjoyed our time playing in the yard or sitting together on the deck or around the bonfire.

We stayed for two weeks during summer with four kids from newborn to age 8 and would come again!

One of the Best Vacations we have had in a long time!

  • 5 of 5

First I have to say that the owners of this home in the woods could not have done more to help us feel right at home in Hague NY. Gave us a list of all the items we would need for the stay in this beautiful cabin,also gave us a list of area attractions, & restaurants to go to, that was much appreciated, We were welcomed to the cabin by a small arrangement of fresh cut wild flowers on the table on the deck. (How did they know that Daises are my favorite flower?!)We actually enter though the basement entrance & there were two large sitting areas,very neat and tidy and the utility room with washer & dryer, which is a necessity for a family of 5. Walked up to the to a large open floor plan, living area, kitchen and slider to the breath taken deck. The boys quickly claimed their spot for the week, which was a little hard to do, due to all the choices they had. Again all the bedrooms and bathroom clean and neat, we felt right at home in no time. The deck got plenty of use, it was so nice to start our day out in the sunshine with a cup of coffee, just listening to the chirping of the birds, and the occasional sound of the a rooster squawking from the small farm down the street. Also the

sound of the babbling brook to the left of the home & the trees blowing in the wind, so relaxing. Did occasionally here a vehicle pass by the home, but due to where the house is set up off the road it was very faint, and very infrequent. We spent a lot of our time on beautiful Lake George from a small beach area, Roger's Rock a state park in Hague that is 5 minutes from the cabin. We did spend one day at Lake George Village and did some sight seeing and then we eat at Lakeside Lodge & did shopping in Bolton Landing. Also our oldest went Zip lining with 2 friends, not my idea of fun, so the rest of the family went to Fort Ticonderoga for a history lesson. A few evenings after our day excursions the kids made a fire in the fire pit in the side yard, was great to have the chance to sit around the fire and catch up with one another, which isn't always easy to do when we are all wrapped up in our daily routine at home. All and all things were great and very relaxing! We have lots of good memories to share and we will definitely come back to this cabin in the woods!

Great place to relax and enjoy the lake

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place located near the lake. Our family of 5 had a phenomenal week of fishing, hiking, enjoying the mountains. This place comes highly recommended if you're going to Lake George to relax but still have some of the amenities of home.

Great stay in beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Carol have a beautiful, spacious, comfortable home. Our party of 8 (2 families of four each with a 9 yo and a 13 yo) enjoyed a wonderful 4 days. Rogers Rock beach is about 3 mins away and a great place to swim and canoe. Ft Ticonderoga is about 15 mins North. Bolton Point about 30 mins and Village of Lake George about 50 mins away. Kids loved the house too!

Very rustic area but there was a Super Walmart and other standards about 15 mins away. Fire pit allowed us to make smores and look at the amazing stargazing show. Hearing the stream flow by was so relaxing. We were speechless at the amazing night sky. Kitchen is stocked even if some items are a bit older. Central a/c, lighting, ceiling fans, game room, washer/dryer and modern bathrooms all contributed to the great stay. Frank was always only a text away if we needed anything. Cell service was impossible but typical for pretty much the same throughtout a 15 min ride up and down Rt 9. Wifi in cabin was strong. Thank you for allowing us to use your rustic home.
