From Adirondack Dream...to Premiere New York Lake Resort

Exceptional New York lake resort lodging in the Adirondacks was the dream that Bill Busch spent his life pursuing. In 1943 he purchased Canoe Island, ¾ of a mile across Lake George with a down payment of 124 bushels of buckwheat seed. Three years later he built six log cabins on the mainland using on-site trees. After marrying Jane Richter in the spring of 1948, they began greeting vacationing guests to their Adirondack family resort as partners in life.

They welcomed honeymooners, picking them up at the train station in the Village, and hosted many a conference on Lake George, the first in 1949. The lodge became renowned as one of the finest family resorts Lake George had to offer. Today, generations of families continue to come to enjoy our Adirondack resort, holding family reunions, company retreats, and unforgettable Lake George weddings.

A touch of nostalgia seems appropriate more than 65 years after ground breaking, hence the old album pictures highlighting decades of enjoyment on the shores of the Queen of American Lakes . Still renowned as one of the finest Lake George resort getaways, the lodge is now, as it was then, family run while retaining a gracious link to gentler times. It is our belief that your leisure time is valuable time, and that the quality of your outdoor experience should match the quality of your Lake George lodging accommodations.
