About the property

Pine Lodge, located in Heart Bay on the very northern end of Lake George (just beyond famous Rogers Rock) is worlds away from the busy southern end of Lake George. Homes in Heart Bay have been owned by the same families for generations.

A stay at Pine Lodge in Heart Bay offers a beautiful, comfortable, and safe spot where you and your family can enjoy a special vacation in a natural, lakeside environment. Take your kids for a boat ride (You'll have a private dock for your boat), or go water-skiing and swimming. You can kayak or canoe, fish or take a nature walk up our 300 acre mountain that reveals spectacular views of Lake George. Or you could settle on the porch with a good book and enjoy the outstanding views of one of America's most beautiful lakes.

You could golf at the nearby Ticonderoga Country Club or play tennis at the free public courts. You might consider a drive to the Adirondack High Peaks region, and it's only a short ferry ride to Vermont where you can enjoy excellent shopping, antiquing and unparalleled scenic drives.

Pine Lodge comes fully equipped with all the amenities to make your stay comfortable. Located at the end of a country road, it enjoys a good deal of privacy and has outstanding lake views.

The main floor has a large kitchen, a separate dining room and a living room with a wood stove, should you desire the ambiance. . The master bedroom with a queen sized bed is located on the main floor, as is the first bathroom. The lower level of Pine Lodge has a bathroom and two bedrooms-- one with a queen sized bed and the other with two twin beds. Laundry facilities are conveniently located on the main floor. A large porch with period furniture looks out over the lake. Pine Lodge is beautifully decorated in elegant Adirondack decor.

There are many ways to vacation at Lake George, but regardless of what you wish to do, a stay at Pine Lodge offers a unique and special site. Come see us during the summer season, or come off-season to enjoy the fall foliage or the quiet beauty of winter. If you are looking for a family vacation-- or a quiet retreat, we can provide both. We'd love to host you anytime at Pine Lodge! Feel free to call us with questions.

About The Owner

Samuel Cook was a forge master in the Revolutionary War. After the war ended, he settled his family in the Ticonderoga area, and the Cooks have lived here ever since. Mountains and islands still carry the Cook name, and The Lake George Land Conservancy's Cook Mountain Preserve (open to the public) is less than a mile from this rental property.

The Cook family retains almost 300 acres of its original Colonial era property, and we feel a deep responsibility to preserve and maintain the beauty and environmental integrity of our inheritance.

We are pleased to be able to share our special property with others who come for the rest and renewal that a vacation at Lake George can provide. Many of our guests have been coming here for years, and two families are fourth generation returnees! We are a family with deep roots and a deep love for Lake George and the Adirondacks. Our children grew up here, learned to swim and water ski here, and in turn developed an appreciation for nature and our precious planet. We hope you and your family might feel the same.

The Owner purchased this house in 1796

Why The Owner chose Lake George

Our ancestor made a wise and far-sighted choice when he came to the shores of Lake George in the 1700's. the Cook family still resides on these shores, and we invite you to share in the special beauty and history of our family property.

What makes this house unique

Yesterday a pair of great blue herons flew by in search of dinner for their young. Today, two loons were calling across the bay. Tomorrow, you might witness the same.

A short hike up Cook mountain to Rogers Rock will afford you breathtaking views. From the top, you can see 2/3rds of the length of Lake George, and in the distance, the Green mountains of Vermont. To the West, you can see into the Pharoah Lakes Wilderness area. This location is a nature lovers dream. You can visit nearby Fort Ticonderoga, and if you come the last week of June or in early September, you can see hundreds of French and Indian War-- or Revolutionary War, re-enactors encamped on the fort's grounds. You could take a moonlight swim or an early morning paddle, then water ski all day if you wish! You could use the property for a writer's retreat or a family reunion, a wedding or a honeymoon site. Dream it, then do it!

"Outstanding" does not begin to capture how special this place is...

  • 5 of 5

I grew up looking across the water at Heart Bay on Lake George and in my mind it's paradise. This past June, my family had a reunion and rented three places, including Pine. The Cook family are as attentive as you need but give you your space. Pine Cottage provides perfect lakeside ease. This part of L.George is far from the noise and honkytonk of L.George Village 30 miles south. Where do I start? It's achingly beautiful and full of history, crystal clear water, fantastic sailing, swimming, boating and hiking right outside your door. Everything I treasured from memories of my youth.

Heart Bay is a special secret. Quiet, private-- a step back in time! Pine Lodge is beautiful, clean and a long way from your usual tourist spot. I cannot recommend it enough.

calm serenity

  • 5 of 5

my husband and i enjoyed the beauty of lake george while staying here at pine lodge for a week in the month of june. The peaceful days and nights were a welcome retreat for us. we hiked rogers rock trail, canoed the calm waters, saw families of geese, loons, fox, an array of birds, and the stars were so bright!

I highly recommend the cook cottages to anyone, the family was friendly and helpful to no end..
