About Sandra Rust

We have shared our love of Lake George and the Adirondack Mountains with 4 generations of our family, and we invite you to continue or begin your own tradition.

We are originally from Westfield, NJ, and in purchased a weekend and summer vacation home in the mid 1980. Although a 4 1/2 hour drive, as we would always say, "the road to the lake is never long."

In 1997 we purchased this property that we are offering, and completely refurbished the building and ran a seasonal cafe "Island View Cafe," along with our son Jeffrey Rust who was the chef extraordinaire. Jeff moved on to bigger and better things, and we reverted the building to residential status and began renting in the summer of 2002.

We ran our gift and antique shop, "Old Glory," for 17 years until the summer of 2014, and we turned the shop into an amazing one bedroom apartment we began renting is the summer of 2015. Many of our guests now rent both units, to include more of their family and friends at the lake.

In 2016 we purchased a historic cottage up the road, just across from the Waltonian Islands. This charming cottage, while not direct lakefront, features an incredible screened porch sitting high over the lake, with unparalleled views of the lake and mountains.

The number of guests we have welcomed is countless, and we treasure the fact that so many of those guests have become great friends.

In our spare time when we are not caring for our guests and our properties, we enjoy boating, camping, hiking, gardening, photography, cooking, and evenings sitting around the campfire with friends.

We invite you to relax at Island View and make memories.

Sandra Rust purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Sandra Rust chose Hague

Island View is sunny and relaxed. You are literally steps from the lake. You are in the hamlet of Hague, and can walk to the Hague Beach and Boat Launch,Hague Market, and Firehouse Restaurant. You can walk to Dockside Landing to rent a boat. We live 2 minutes away, so we are always available to help with whatever you need during your stay.

What makes this apartment unique

Very reasonable price for 2-4 guests, and short stays available.

Island View 2 is great for overflow if another rental home or family home cannot accommodate all guests, or for people desiring more privacy.

There is a king size bed that can be converted to two twin beds if needed. Any additional sleeping is on cots we can provide, or inflatable mattresses you bring.

If you don't need a large home to accommodate your group, Island View 2 can be the perfect spot for your Lake George stay. Large and roomy, with a rustic cabin feel. Faces the street, but walk a few steps to enjoy a lakeside patio for quiet enjoyment.

Great room style with living, dining and kitchen area. High vaulted ceilings. Large picture windows in front.

Porch with rockers.

Full kitchen with large island with stools, full size fridge, stove and microwave. All dishes and cooking utensils.

Bedroom with King bed or two twin beds on request.

Great hosts and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our first visit to Hague, and Sandy and Bruce’s Island View 2 apartment was the perfect place to stay for a few days and explore the area. The apartment had everything we needed for sleeping, cooking, and relaxing. Even though the apartment does not have a lake view, we just had to walk across the parking area to a private patio that literally hangs over the lake. The sunrises and moonrises were amazing. We liked being able to walk to explore the town beach, the really cool little general store, and the pretty waterfall. Sandy and Bruce are very friendly and always available with suggestions and to answer questions. We really liked that they communicated everything we needed to know prior to our stay. We will definitely consider coming back to explore more of the area.

Absolutely loved everything.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, really cool bedroom and very clean. They had a nice kitchen set up with all the utensils I need to cook with. The deck is around the corner of the apartment takes seconds to get there. I will probably go back with family next time. Again, I absolutely loved everything about Lake George and staying in this apartment made it even more special.

The host Sandra and her husband Bruce were also very nice!

Antiques galore on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our 6-month-old son in this awesome apartment. It was right on Lake George with a beautiful private deck. It was perfect with an infant but once kids start walking it would probably be hard to baby-proof... Too many cool antiques to move! You can also take a short walk (less than 5 min) into the tiny town to the public beach, restaurants & bars, and market. My family has been staying at various places in Lake George for 15+ years and it is unusual to find a lakeside property that is in walking distance to amenities in town so this was a big plus. The apartment is quiet and comfortable with a great kitchen. The only downsides were that there is a little road noise (didn't bother us at all) and no direct lake view from the apartment, but there is the beautiful deck. A great find! Sandra and Bruce were very hospitable. We hope to return!

Island View 2

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I really enjoyed our first stay at Island View 2. We've stayed at other places, but, for us Island View 2 was perfect. They way the apartment was decorated made me feel like I was living in a country store. Plenty of storage & sleeping space, made from shelving units. These shelving units also helped to cut down the traffic noise when sleeping. No stairs to climb, the entire apartment was on one floor. We had our own patio right on the lake, where we could relax after a wonderful day of swimming, sight seeing or doing nothing. The apartment is within walking distance to a beach area, Hague Market and casual dinning places. The owners even found time in their busy schedules to come to our little patio to have munchies with us as we watched the beautiful sunset show over the mountains across the lake. So many historic & educational places, like Fort Ti , for all ages to learn about the fight for freedom. Bolton Landing & Lake George Village have terrific shops where one could find that perfect memento or eatery, there are even things for the kids to do while parents shop. We liked our first stay so much, that we are going back again & again & again. Beautiful, scenic & private - one of a kind place to stay.

Excellent, rustic unit with beautiful lakeside patio adjacent. Location worked great for us and the surrounding area had enough activities for us all. Quiet and peaceful, but close enough to anything you might need just a short drive away. Hosts were very welcoming and friendly, perfectly laid back for a relaxing lake vacation. Definitely coming back for a longer stay next time!
