Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8, lake access, huge deck, spectacular views!

This beautiful two-story A-frame offers spectacular views of northern Lake George from both inside and out! Upstairs, a comfortable living space with fireplace, dining area, and open kitchen features glass doors across the full width of the house, opening onto a full deck overlooking the Lake. Two bedrooms and a full bath complete the upstairs, while downstairs offers two more bedrooms and full bath (shower only), a laundry room, and a workroom. Fully winterized, this lovely modern house is perfect year-round as a base for summer swimming, hiking, and boating. winter skiing, or fall leaf season. Lake access for swimming only. The house does not have a dock; boat put-in access is available nearby.

Swimming, Boating and Hiking: A path directly across from the house provides swimming access to Lake George. Children must be supervised; swimmers must climb in and out from a large, flat rock. Public beaches are available at both Hague village, 2.5 miles south, and (for a small entry fee) Rogers Rock State Campground, 1 mile north. Boat put-ins are also available at both places for a fee. Boats and jet skis can be rented at Dockside Marina in Hague.

The Adirondacks is full of wonderful hiking trails, including nearby a trail to Jabe's Pond, a small hidden paradise filled with loons; the Tongue Mountain trail that leads to fabulous Lake George views; and hikes up the mountains to Sunrise Peak and Inspiration Point, for experienced climbers.

Other Activities: An 18-hole golf course is open to the public at Ticonderoga Country Club just a few miles north. Horseback riding can be found at Diamond Point, about 25 minutes south, and Chestertown. Other points of interest include Fort Ticonderoga, a restored site just 10 minutes north, the Adirondack Museum in Blue Lake, and the honky tonk wonders of Lake George Village. A drive into the Adirondacks will reward with terrific views of the High Peaks; at Lake Placid, don't miss the John Brown historic house, or the elevator ride to the top of the Olympic ski jump tower!

About Ginny Blanford

Recently retired, I spent many years as an editor in NYC and have also published four romance novels! My husband, a professor of American literature, is working on a biography of the author Herman Melville.

Ginny Blanford purchased this chalet in 1998

Why Ginny Blanford chose Hague

I fell in love with northern Lake George as a teenage visitor to Silver Bay, where I worked during college summers. When I married, I introduced my California-bred husband to the Lake. He loved it just as much as I do, and after many summers with our daughters at Silver Bay, we bought this beautiful home in Hague,

What makes this chalet unique

We love the combination of beauty and quiet at the northern end of the Lake--amazing views, wonderful hiking and canoeing, and the charming village of Hague. We love this house in particular because it is large enough to accommodate our family (three grown daughters, two spouses, two grandchildren!) and cozy enough to allow us all to be together in the open living/ dining space and the huge deck overlooking the Lake.

This is a great place to stay on Lake George

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful view from the porch over the lake! We enjoyed it every evening of our stay. It is also a great place to have a party, we had three with friends for Ticonderoga. Plenty of room to share a meal and conversation.

All four bedrooms are very spacious and the kitchen was well furnished for cooking. The Internet connections and TV worked very well, so no issues with technology. Northern Lake George is not as congested with tourists as the southern part of the lake, so this is definitely a place to book for a peaceful Lake George vacation!

Comfortable house in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, well appointed, well stocked and had a stunning view of Lake George. It was close to many spots that we wanted to visit. The driveway was steep and a bit of a challenge to negotiate. Our host gave us great tips on places nearby, including where to eat, find groceries, and places that suited our particular interests. We would stay here again if we return to the area.

Great place for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Lake George. This place had a great view of the lake, and everything we needed. We brought a potty training seat from home, and there was one at the rental much to our surprise. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, and drinking coffee. The place had plenty of games/puzzles, and things for small children. My three year old loved it. We loved the character of the tables, but I wouldn't recommend keeping them in a vacation rental. We were worried all week on forgetting to put down a coaster! I was also worried about it not having AC but it was not a problem at all. Even in July the evenings were cooler. We had 7 people in our party, and the hot water heater was on a timer. It would be turned off, and leave cold water in the evenings after spending the day exploring. Ginny was super fast in responding to all emails. We didn't have any issues upon arrival. She was very accommodating at the last min for us to request cleaning of the rental.

Overall - I would recommend this cabin to anyone, and would love to stay here again on our next trip to Lake George.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for these comments--we enjoyed having you as guests as well! We'll try to be more careful about the hot water settings in the future, especially when we know we will be hosting larger parties. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at the Lake and hope to see you again in years to come!

Beautiful Property with Something for Everyone

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the perfect place for a weekend away - it can be as relaxing or as adventurous as you want! The property was in excellent condition - all utilities, appliances, etc. worked perfectly. The handcrafted tables were beautiful. The fireplace was easy to use and there was more than enough room for our entire party of seven.

The view across Lake George is absolutely breathtaking from the cabin. Numerous hiking trails were nearby, with everything we could need a short drive away while still affording you a private, secluded stay if you want it.

The owner was an absolute pleasure to rent from, and we definitely look forward to spending time there again!

Perfect family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had in this beautiful home. The homeowner was very friendly and responded to any emails and inquiries very quickly. She was accommodating for any special needs we had. The house was clean and bright with breathtaking views from the very large deck. We spent most nights on the deck which can easily accommodate 10-15 people. With 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor, this is a great place for families traveling together who want a little privacy, but still want to be together. The entrance to the water was very slippery so we just went to the beach right down the road. It was perfect and the kids loved it.
