Description of the Lake George vacation home rental
2 Unique homes for rent Located in the town of Ticonderoga at the northern end of Lake George.


Home #1 The Big House

The main house has been used by the family for the past 60 years. Originally built and finished in 1947, it was one of the first “modern architectural designs” on the northern end of Lake George.
This sprawling ranch home is sitting on a terrace about 30 feet above the water with spectacular views due South. The clear blue waters of Lake George, Heart Bay, Rogers Rock and Anthony’s Nose are all visible and many hours have been spent enjoying the views. At night the clear uncluttered skies provide exceptional views of the stars, the moon and constellations.

The house was originally built as a two bedroom summer home with one and a half baths. Large dining room and huge living room with fireplace (converted to gas insert). This provides very comfortable living and is mostly updated with newer furniture. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and in the second is a full and a twin.
An additional wing has been added to the original structure that is also available which consists of 2 bedrooms, a full bath, family room and kitchenette and partial finished walkout basement. The first bedroom also has a queen sized bed and the second two twins. This allows for a wonderful set up for very large family gatherings or multi generation use (sleeps up to 13 including walkout basement).

The outside is where the families spend most of the daylight hours. A huge (16x 30) flagstone patio has been added on to the original porch. There is ample room for dinner parties, cocktail parties or just sunning and lounging.

There is access to a shared dock that has two sides and extends out for over 100 feet from the shoreline. One side is about 20 feet wide and the other about 8 feet. This allows the families who may be sharing the dock to have plenty of room to relax and stretch out. There is lots of room for mooring boats and for sunbathing.

The water is clear and pure and some of the best swimming in Lake George is right off the dock with a lovely sandy bottom. It’s ideal for children with a gradual increase in depth from about 3 feet deep to about 6 feet at the deep end of the dock.


The Boat House
Located directly over the water, this is a truly one of a kind experience.
This is a 100 year old, former butler’s quarter that has been modernized and updated some what. It still has all the old charm associated with life in a different era. Staying here is like living in a camp from your childhood.

Upstairs consists of one bedroom (queen size bed), a kitchen and a living room with futon and daybed and a bathroom with shower.
Downstairs are two bedrooms and a small bathroom and shower. The bathroom is located in the first bedroom. This bedroom has a queen bed, a day bed and the second bedroom has two bunk beds with a full size mattress on the bottom and a twin on the top. We do limit the number of occupants to eight as not to overtax the septic.

Downstairs has direct access to the dock and at night you will be lulled to sleep by the water sounds.

The dock has two sides and extends out for over 100 feet from the shoreline.
One side is about 20 feet wide and the other about 8 feet. This allows the families who may be sharing the dock to have plenty of room to relax and stretch out. There is lots of room for mooring boats and for sunbathing.

The water is clear and pure and some of the best swimming in Lake George is right off the dock with a lovely sandy bottom. It’s ideal for children with a gradual increase in depth from about 3 feet deep to about 6 feet at the deep end of the dock.

The view is due south down the lake and is exceptional.
