In winter, experience traditional Adirondack activities like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or even snowmobiling into many of the accessible and pristine areas nearby. Winter camping is also an option in Hague.

Breathtaking beauty, clear mountain air, and privacy provide the foundation for an ideal year-round retreat. Relax and let this tiny lakeside village charm you time after time.

Hague is also home to the story of "George" the Lake George Monster. Georgie was created by Harry Watrous originally to fool his neighbor, Colone William Mann. After successfully scaring his neighbor, Watrous went on to spook anyone who boated by his lakefront home with Georgie.
