- Often referred to as The Queen of American Lakes, Lake George is 32 miles of sparkling natural beauty. A deep glacial lake with a maximum depth of 200 feet, it is graced by over 170 islands that are perfect for picnicking, camping, or simply exploring. Lake George was important for travel for the Native Americans of the region, and was a critical channel for travel and communication during the Revolutionary War. Its colorful history includes a long list of notable characters, from the exploits of Rogers Rangers, to the famed artist Georgia O'Keefe and the residents of “Millionaires Row". Lake front real estate in Lake George became a highly popular destination with the onset of the Victorian era, when the wealthy made it their summer playground and getaway from the smog and congestion of the city. Palatial waterfront estates grew along the shoreline and Adirondack great-camp style retreats became the summer getaway of choice.
