The Adirondack Lakes: Lake George
Are you looking for a New York vacation rental that is both iconic and personally memorable? Consider a vacation rental in the Lake George area.
Lake George is in the southern part of the Adirondack Mountains, and it is the largest lake situated entirely within the Adirondacks. It‘s approximately 30 miles long and about 3 miles wide at its widest point. (Lake Champlain, which is nearby, actually is between the Adirondacks and the neighboring Green Mountains of Vermont. The La Chute River, which connects the two lakes, drains Lake George into Lake Champlain.)
Where is Lake George? It’s about 245 miles north of New York City; you can get to it by heading north on I-87. Actually, the Canadian city of Montreal is much closer; only 153 miles to the north. If you’re flying in, consider Albany International Airport, 92 miles to the south.
There are several towns that make their home in the lake George area. These include Diamond Point, Bolton Landing, and Hague. The town of Lake George, on the southern end of the lake, is perhaps the best-known tourist destination. Ticonderoga, which is located between the northern end of Lake George and Lake Champlain, may well be an ideal spot for a vacation rental if you plan on going lake-hopping.
