Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to his daughter, “Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw.”

After spending the long weekend at Lake George I wholeheartedly agree with Jeffersons statement. Lake George, is a long, narrow lake located within the majestic Adirondack Mountains, in upstate New York. The lake has 395 islands scattered throughout crystal clear waters, where a majority of them are protected by the state.

Lake George, nicknamed the Queen of American Lakes, has been a popular North East tourist destination, resort center, and summer colony since the late 1800’s. The Sagamore hotel opened in 1883 and served an upscale clientele.
