The waterfront peninsula was nothing short of magnificent. And the house was extremely clean and comfortable. As an artist/musician, I was able to focus in a peaceful environment. My long time friends who vacation in Hague came over a few times by boat. We enjoyed boat rides, swimming, grilling and relaxing on the porch. I would definitely do this again!

A rare spot on a private peninsula on the north end of Lake George. Old house charm. Loved sitting on the porch morning & eve and at the firepit at night.

The owner was solicitous of our needs before and during our stay in her beautiful family vacation home. We especially enjoyed the spacious porch for reading and eating. The home is situated on a shallow peninsula so that there are great views of the lake on three sides. We watched stunning sunsets and the star filled sky from the elegantly landscaped lawn. Exquisite!

This is a beautiful place! The front porch and view are the best! Susan was very responsive to any issues that came up.

Three generations of family stayed in the house for a week. The property is A+. The house is in the woods, and surrounded by water with lake views and access on three sides. It is very relaxing just to sit on the porch or lawn and contemplate the beauty that is Northern Lake George. The house is old and quirky and could use some TLC. There is no air conditioning but the living room windows are not screened which made for a choice of a very hot house in the late afternoon or open the windows for cross breeze and let the bugs in. I advise you to bring extension cords and extra fans. The house heats up starting around 4 pm and cools off around midnight. The house draws its water from the lake so you must boil water or buy gallons of water to drink. That wasn't clear to me from the listing so i am mentioning it, but it turned out not to be a big deal to pick up water in neighboring Ticonderoga. Lake George water is famously clean and clear so i had no problems with bathing in the lake water. If you are coming here to enjoy days on the water, boating, fishing, swimming in the crystal clear waters and kayaking, and are ok with a quirky old house, this place will be a little slice of heaven. I loved it. If you are expecting modern conveniences and updated interior then this may not be the house for you.

We loved our week at Brown Gables! Susan was very helpful and was very informative about the property. We enjoyed swimming in the lake and relaxing on the porch and making art. It was a wonderful week.

Brown Gables is the "real deal," an authentic Adirondack camp in a spectacular location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

I will start off by saying the property is beautiful. Our families enjoying swimming off the dock and using the available kayaks. Unfortunately, I did not realize how large Lake George is and the great boat trips, railroad biking and nice shops/restaurants were an hour away. We loved spending a few days swimming and hanging out on the property but spent several days traveling an hour each way to enjoy other activities. The property manager treated us more like Inn keepers then guests. She made sure to come by and let us know we had to close the windows whenever we left (despite the lack of air-conditioning and the fact that the upstairs gets fairly warm), pull in all the cushions from the outside furniture so it didn't get wet if it rained, and even came into the house while we were there to complain about our children putting their toys near her art. Be aware there is no laundry washer or dryer, despite the advertised coin laundry. The property manager also takes a $250.00 payment for cleaning service, but you are expected to take all your garbage and recycling with you. You can bring it to a center about 30 minutes towards Vermont. It you live in the Tri-state area, that would add an hour to your trip home. We brought all the garbage/recycling we had from the week the night before we left, to the center, so we could try to clean as much of the trash as we could. However, we cleaned out the refrigerator the next morning and had room in our car for the recycling, but not the bag of garbage. It was a problem for the property manager that we left that bag. I think with a $250.00 fee, that should include disposal of the trash. Overall we had a beautiful week. Lake George is a beautiful location but next time we would choose a different property closer to the main tourist area.
