About the Owner

About Sandra Rust:
Thank you for considering our Island View home. We enjoy meeting so many nice people who love Lake George as much as we do. We are honored that many of our guests have chosen to return to Island View for many years, and have become treasured friends. Four generations of our family have been spending summers on Lake George for almost 100 years. We live in Hague, so we are nearby to help with anything you need during your vacation. We will do everything possible to make certain you have a great vacation at Lake George. See you at the Lake!

Sandra and Bruce Rust purchased this House in 1995

Why Sandra Rust chose Hague:
The northern part of Lake George is the most beautiful part of the lake, as it is quieter and slower paced. Bruce grew up camping on the nearby islands with his family, and it is a dream come true to have the good fortune to call a piece of Lake George home. Hague is a wonderful town to spend a day or a lifetime. We count our hospitality as well as our home’s cozy warmth and location directly on Lake George as the main reasons people love our Island View Vacation home.

What makes this House unique:
Our home is located directly on Lake George. The house sits less than 10 feet from the lake! The views are breathtaking, and the lake is spectacular anytime of the day or night. Gorgeous sunrises and moonrises are not to be missed. We are just minutes by boat to the wonderful Waltonian Island group. We love being able to walk to the town beach for summer concerts, the Hague waterfall and brook for peace and serenity, and the Hague General store to meet friends, grab a cup of coffee, pick up supplies and maybe a great pie! Our outdoor fireplace is the perfect spot for ending your day relaxing under the stars.

Exactly what we were looking for!

Perfect cabin on the lake is exactly how id describe the Island View home. It’s in a quiet location on the northern part of lake George and I feel like we couldn’t have picked a better spot. My husband , myself and our two kids ( ages 5 and 1) came up to the lake Columbus Day weekend to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage , do some hiking, and just relax indoors by the lake. We lucked out and had perfect weather all weekend. The hiking around the house was close by with many trails to choose from. We love renting cabins in the woods and the inside of this house felt just like that only we were on a lake! Every little detail and decoration in this house was cozy and inviting. We loved sitting at the bar looking out at the lake and I personally loved the little booth they had tucked in the corner. It was also so lovely to wake up to the view in the master bedroom.
We drove to dinner in Bolton landing two of the nights. It was about a 20-25 min drive but very relaxing and scenic with the turned leaves.
Sandra was such a pleasure to rent from. She gave us very detailed instructions on how to get to the cabin as well as many dining options around Lake George. She is also very helpful with all the little details about the town you might not think of before arriving. She loves her town of Hague and it’s easy to see why!
This was our first visit to Lake George and I think the fall might be the best time to come! We can’t wait to return and will definitely be looking to rent from Sandra again. It was exactly what we were looking for!

A Gem of A House!

This is my second year at Island View!! Bruce and Sandy (owners) have made a comfortable retreat from the rat race of everyday life. There is nothing derogatory I can say, they have it all covered. I am looking forward to another relaxing week on the Lake with my family again next year.

Island view is utterly unique. Too many charming features to count. Right on the water of Lake George with a wharf. Beautiful flowers, a firepit with plenty of wood, great location between city beach and commercial marina. Owners, Bruce and Sandy, were charming and responsive to any and every need. What a great vacation!

Bass Fishing Great!

My friends and I have stayed at the Island View for years and have never been disapointed. If you venture out on Lake George or drive a few minutes to Lake Champlain or do some sightseeing, it's nice to know you have a clean and safe home away from home to come back to. The owners make sure your stay is the best it could be. If you find yourself vacationing in Hague NY, stay at the Island View. You'll be glad you did, I sure am.

Our Fifth Year!

0
This is our fifth year at Island View and I can't say enough about it! The house is clean, charming, comfortable, and always welcoming. The view of the lake is breath taking and just beautiful - especially when the sun rises through the bedroom window in the morning! The flowers all around the property add to the beauty of the lake and make you feel like you're in a home away from home. Sandy and Bruce have made us feel welcome since our first visit and have since become good friends. If you're looking for a peaceful vacation in a beautiful spot - Island View on Lake George is definitely the place to go! And if you want activities - there's plenty of that too. Fishing, horseback riding, hiking, boating, kayaking - to name just a few - are all within a short drive from the house. This place has it all! We just love it!

Owner Response:

Your kind words and compliments are so thoughtful and appreciated. Having guests like your family become such good friends is the best part of Island View, and is what makes us want to continue to make it better each and every year. See you over the winter and can't wait for next summer!

I give Island View 5 Stars

Highly recommend staying at the Island View! We have stayed with Bruce & Sandy for many years with our family and we loved every minute. You couldn't ask for two nicer people to rent from they are the best!!! They spoiled us so much we had to buy our own house on Lake George so we can see them more often. I give the Island View 5 stars!

Island View Review

If you looking for a Grade A vacation rental cottage on the quiet end of Lake George, it doesn't get any better than this. I can't imagine anything more that these wonderful hosts could provide to make your stay more enjoyable. The cottage was everything we were looking for with regards to comfortable living space, amenities, and its close proximity to the lake. The property is everything it is described to be on the VRBO web site and then some. The extra bonus one gets when staying at this property is the 4 star service provided by the owners, Sandra and Bruce Rust. The willingness of these owners to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible is commendable. Our only regret is that our week long stay went by much to fast and we have to wait another year before we can return.
