Our Island View home is directly on peaceful Northern Lake George. Lake George is known as the 'Queen of American Lakes.'  Majestic panoramic views from every room. 

We are in the quiet hamlet of Hague, in the North Basin of Lake George. Inside or out,  you are literally steps from the lake. Here you can relax and forget the rest of the world. 

This is a two story house, with the living/dining area and kitchen on the first floor, and three bedrooms, a sleeping/lounging porch and 2 bathrooms on the second floor.

There is a large brick patio, and an 8 foot wide dock. The patio has 2 tables, comfortable outdoor furniture, a gas grill and an outdoor fireplace. Wood is provided for campfires! The entire property is beautifully planted with flowers.

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 by 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 and park, which is a great spot for swimming, picnics, etc. There is a lifeguard on duty at the Beach. 

The first floor consists of a great room living and dining area. There is a queen-size sleep sofa in the living room. The entire lake side of the living/dining area is glass windows overlooking the lake. There is a dining table seating 6-8, and a fun restaurant style booth that seats 4. The living area has a 19 inch color/cable TV with VCR and DVD. There is also a small CD player with connector for ipod type devices.  A highlight of the living area is a beautiful stained glass window.

The living/dining area is separated from the kitchen by a great bar/breakfast counter. This is the perfect spot for eating, or relaxing with a drink. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size stove and refrigerator, dishwasher, as well as a microwave oven, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, electric griddle, and all basic cooking and serving utensils. 

Upstairs the master bedroom is a large room with a KING-size bed next to a huge picture window overlooking the lake. Relax while listening to the sound of waves lapping the shore! The master bedroom opens to a balcony overlooking the lake.  This is the perfect spot to watch the sunrise, or catch a spectacular moon rise across the lake. The balcony is rimmed with flower boxes. This room also has a dresser, and a sitting area with 2 chairs.  There is a large closet. The master bedroom has a private bath with tub/shower. This room also opens to the sleeping/lounging porch.

The second bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed, as well as a dresser. This bedroom faces the lake. 

Both bedrooms are air conditioned, and have TV's with DVD players. 

A third small bedroom has a twin bed, and a lovely lake view. This bedroom is not air conditioned.

There is a delightful sleeping/lounging porch, ringed with windows overlooking the lake. This room has a double bed, a desk and a small table and chairs. This is the perfect spot for lounging, reading, and relaxing.
This room is accessed through the master bedroom or bedroom or second bedroom.

The entire lakeside of the building is the Island View Rental. The front of the building houses my charming antique and gift shop, 'Old Glory.' You have your privacy, but during the day I am nearby to assist you in anyway you may need with household needs, travel/tourist advice, etc. Our guests enjoy the personalized service we are always happy to provide! 

The furnishings are Adirondack 'lodge' casual but comfortable.  Games, puzzles, cards, etc. are ready for the kids. 

Quoted rates are for a 'housekeeping unit'  meaning that there is no daily maid service. Maid service can be arranged if desired. Tenants are asked to bring their own sheets and towels. Plenty of pillows and blankets are available. Linen/towel service may be arranged if desired, or if you will be flying instead of driving.  Beach towels are not provided. No towels are to be removed from the premises. There is no washer, but laundry service is available if requested. A laundromat is located in Ticonderoga, where you will also find groceries, gas, banks, and other services. 

Parking is provided for two vehicles. If you need more space for an additional vehicle, boat trailer, etc, please let us know and we gladly  make arrangements.  No RV parking is allowed. No guests are allowed to sleep on boats. 

There is no smoking inside the building. 

The hamlet of Hague is a tiny, lovely Adirondack village. While staying at the Island View you can walk to the 'Oldest General Store in the Adirondacks.' The town also has several antique and specialty shops. There is a small family restaurant with a bar. You can also walk to our beautiful Town Beach and Boat Ramp. Hike to our Hague waterfall, or enjoy other hikes on nearby trails.  Three churches are within walking distance. Other restaurants are located in nearby Ticonderoga. Fort Ticonderoga, Saratoga, Lake Placid, and Vermont are all easy drives away. There is an Amtrak Railroad station in Ticonderoga, with daily service to New York City. If you need transportation to the train station we can provide it for you. 

Our Lake George rental offers a three season paradise! Spend the summer on the lake swimming, boating, and water-skiing. Fish for Bass, Lake Trout and Landlocked Salmon. Enjoy spectacular fall foliage. History, scenery, hiking, art, antiquing, museums and shopping are all nearby, while you enjoy the peace and serenity of the Adirondack Mountains. We are one hour north of Saratoga, famous for horse racing. Ticonderoga is 10 miles away, with Fort Ticonderoga and access to Lake Champlain. Vermont is a scenic ferry boat ride away!

                        Island View has been our summer family getaway for a few years now. With each year we have come to appreciate it more and more, but this past summer Island View became the place where one of our sons asked his long-time girlfriend to marry him. Under the stars , at the end of the dock, on a beautiful summer's night , he asked and she accepted. We woke up that morning to another incredible sunrise and their good news. He chose that spot on purpose, because of the memories they'd already shared on the Lake. We love it here! The views are spectacular, the house itself so comfortable and always being upgraded. There is ample room to spread out or be together. The lake is at your doorstep. We spend most nights around the fire pit . You couldn't ask for better hosts than Bruce and Sandy- they are attentive to detail and want nothing more than for their guests to enjoy the ultimate lake experience , but at this point we feel more like family. We knew right away that Island View was a special place, now it's even more so.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                        Owner response: We look forward to your return stay each summer! We were honored to have your son choose Island View for such a special moment, and love knowing they will have such special memories. We can't wait to see the newlyweds and hear all about the wedding.

                        We have been going to the lake house for three years. The location is perfect and the views unbelievable. We spend our week relaxing on the dock, swimming at the islands, walking through the town, and fires lakeside at night. The house feels like it your own home; comfy furniture, cozy décor, extremely well stocked large kitchen, large living room, big master bedroom with incredible view of the lake, and surrounded by beautiful flowers. We fell in love with the house at first sight three years ago and couldn't imagine a summer not at the lake.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your kind words. You are amazing guests and we can't imagine summer without you! It's fun now seeing your children grow up, and we hope they go on to love Lake George and keep it a family tradition. Thank you always for your kindness and generosity...you spoil us!

                        My family enjoyed the relaxing and wonderful time at the lake! The morning and evening views were outstanding. There is a boat rental 500 yards north and they are great to deal with - rented a canoe for the week! The owners, Bruce and Sandy, are friendly and quick to accommodate your request. The kids loved being able to swim right from the dock. The islands about 3/4 mile north are fun to explore and picnic at. We will definitely keep Bruce and Sandy in mind on future visits!

                        Owner response: Your family were such great guests at Island View. We enjoyed seeing you have so much fun with your family during your stay. We would love to see you all back someday! Thank you for your stay. We truly appreciate it.

                        We really enjoyed our week at the cabin. It was so relaxing being right there on the lake. We swam during the day and made a fire at night. The outdoor patio area is terrific. We also rented a boat and had a great time viewing the lake. The accommodations are clean and comfortable and we felt at home. Our kids who are older were glad they had wireless internet to use their laptops. Sandy and Bruce are also nearby if needed.

                        Recommended for: People with disabilities, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, families with young children.

                        Owner response: We truly appreciate your stay. Thank you for your kind words. We so wish we could have found a small boat with motor like you wanted. Someone needs to go into that business! We welcome you back to Island View in the future.

                        I arrived at Lake George solo after the other person in my party could not make it at the last minute. Sandy and Bruce could not have been more accommodating and kind. They were even nice enough to take me out on their boat to show me around the lake and the awesome views of the area from the water. Great, great people and I feel lucky to have gotten the opportunity to get to know them! The house itself is adorable with a whole lot of character and has everything you need to relax. Situated right on the water the views are spectacular and the lapping of the waves are so relaxing. The outdoor patio area is spectacular! Great evenings were spent grilling, sipping beers by the fire pit and taking it all in. The upstairs balcony is also wonderful. Both mornings started up there with a book and a cup of coffee. After a small journey to Lake George Village I cannot recommend Hague enough; almost a different world. Lake George is overrun with tourists and boats and the scenery is just not as pretty. The Hague area is so much more breathtaking and quiet. Will definitely be back many times in the future bringing new friends or family along with me! Thanks again Sandy and Bruce!

                        Owner response: It was great meeting you! Thanks for being so flexible and coming by yourself, and for being such a good sport...;) We will look forward to your return visit!!

                        We were a group of 6 (plus 1 baby) looking for a relaxing weekend on Lake George. We were absolutely delighted to discover the Island View vacation home in Hague. It was everything we were looking for: a gorgeous and peaceful lake setting, cozy living room and bedrooms, and a great kitchen for cooking! A couple of us went rowing in a rowboat provided by Bruce and Sandy, and we also went on a leisurely hike nearby. The Hague Market was just steps away, and it met our basic grocery needs. Sandy and Bruce were wonderful to correspond with and meet. Their warm hospitality was much appreciated by everyone in the group. At the end of the weekend, we all wanted to stay for a couple more days. We will most certainly be back for another visit!

                        Owner response: We love first time guests at Island View! A mutual love of Lake George and the Adirondacks has introduced us to so many wonderful people. We welcome your return stay!

                        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!

                        This is our fifth year at Island View and I can't say enough about it! The house is clean, charming, comfortable, and always welcoming. The view of the lake is breath taking and just beautiful - especially when the sun rises through the bedroom window in the morning! The flowers all around the property add to the beauty of the lake and make you feel like you're in a home away from home. Sandy and Bruce have made us feel welcome since our first visit and have since become good friends. If you're looking for a peaceful vacation in a beautiful spot - Island View on Lake George is definitely the place to go! And if you want activities - there's plenty of that too. Fishing, horseback riding, hiking, boating, kayaking - to name just a few - are all within a short drive from the house. This place has it all! We just love it!

                        Owner response: Your kind words and compliments are so thoughtful and appreciated. Having guests like your family become such good friends is the best part of Island View, and is what makes us want to continue to make it better each and every year.

                        My freinds and I have stayed at the Island View for years and have never been disapointed. If you venture out on Lake George or drive a few minutes to Lake Champlain or do some sightseeing, it's nice to know you have a clean and safe home away from home to come back to. The owners make sure your stay is the best it could be. If you find yourself vacationing in Hague NY, stay at the Island View. You'll be glad you did, I sure am.

                        Recommended for: Adventure seekers, sightseeing.

                        Owner response: We appreciate your making Island View your home away from home on Lake George. Thank you for the confidence you place in us to fulfill your vacation needs. Keep on fishing, and returning to Hague!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: 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!

                      Why the Owner 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...

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      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!
