Owner description: During a 1791 visit, Thomas Jefferson was moved to say, "Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw." Not much has changed. Today this 32-mile long, 3-mile wide dazzling lake draws vactioners who come to enjoy a plethora of outdoor endeavors including sailing, swimming, cruising on historic steamboats, hiking and more.

“Take your time and stroll”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We visited the area and enjoyed walking around the lake, watching the river boats and shopping. It was very peaceful and picturesque. I like how the area reminded me of places we visited in my childhood and look forward to returning next year.

“Take a 1 hour steamboat ride”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

1 hour steamboat ride on the Minne Ha Ha gives you a nice tour of the Southern portion of Lake George.

“Beautiful Lake with clean water and Beach like atmosphere”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We visited the Lake in June 2013, stayed several hours on the Million dollar beach. We took the Minnie Ha-Ha steam boat ride for an hour. The boat ride was pleasant and relaxing with the steam puffing out in rhythms and the boat slowly moving through the gentle waves. The captain mentioned highlights of the houses along the lake and provided history during the ride.

There are many restaurants and shops along the beach road and Canada Street. You can park on the street near the meters or in public parking area where there were many parking spaces with parking meters.

Overall the shops and the atmosphere makes you think that you are in a shore town near an ocean.

“Very Peaceful”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I visited the area on a trip from Albany to Lake Placid. It was well worth the duversion. There is a very nice sand beach. It was calm and I was struck by how calm and peaceful the lake was. Very nice!
