Description of the Lake George vacation home rental
Our property is located on the northern end of Lake George (Ticonderoga) with a beautiful view looking south. You'll be situated on 2 acres of prime waterfront property with 325' ft of shoreline to enjoy. There are 2 homes on this unique property which is like none other.

The Big House (1st home)

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 large two bedroom summer home with one and a half baths an addition was added with another 2 bedrooms and full bath. The large kitchen, dining room and living room make for great entertaining or a family gathering place. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second bedroom has a twin and a double. The master bathroom was just fully updated with tile floors and a large step in shower.

The addition wing consists of 2 bedrooms, a full bath, small family room and kitchenette and unfinished walkout basement with extra sleeping areas - consisting of a king bed, a double, and a twin bed (hospital). The 2 bedrooms in the addition have a queen bed and the second has two twins. This allows for a wonderful set up for very large family gatherings or multi generation use (Maximum 10 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.

The Boat House (2nd home)

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 turned into another home for our family. It's quaint and rustic with 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 which has a queen size bed. The second bedroom is the kids room with two bunk beds featuring a full size mattress on the bottom and a twin on the top. We do limit the number of occupants to ten as not to overtax the septic.

Downstairs has direct access to the dock. No matter where you sleep you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the water.

THE BOATHOUSE IS NOT HEATED SO PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND FOR LATE FALL OR EARLY SPRING RENTALS. IT IS NOT AVAILABLE FROM BEGINNING OF NOV TO EARLY APRIL.

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 for plenty of room for your family and friends. There is plenty of room for mooring boats and sunbathing.

The water is clear and pure with some of the best swimming in Lake Georgeright off the dock with a lovely sandy bottom. It's ideal for children with a gradual increase in depth from about 2-3 feet deep to about 6 feet at the deep end of the dock.

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