Ruah Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Hague B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 October 2012

Located 30 miles or so north of Lake George head straight here if you need some relaxation. Better hurry though they will close at month's end for the season. The area does close down pretty much by Columbus Day.

The house is about 100 years old and is lovingly kept up. The interior was featured in a House Beautiful issue. 50% of the furnishings are original to the house.

Four bedrooms are available. We went with Queen of the Lakes, we wanted a private bath. The room is clean and charming. The fireplace is gas operated. Breakfast was standard B and B fare, well presented and delicious. No TV in your room a 13 inch is available in the downstairs living room. Wi-fi won't reach upstairs. Cell phone is only available with Verizon or Sprint. our t-mobile was out of commission.

The closest restaurant is Emeralds's at the Ticonderoga County Club. You can also eat at the Sagamore Resort, Bolton's Landing or Lake George. Fort Ticonderoga is about 15 minutes away and worth the visit.

Take a few days away from TV, email, and recharge your batteries. The owners are trying to sell the property and I hope when the sale is made the new owners keep as a Bed and Breakfast.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are good, not all have private, in room bathrooms, check out the website.

Ruah is amazing: the house is gourgeous, the breakfast is delicious, Peter and Judy are the best hosts you can ever imagine.
It's a peaceful place where you can relax and enjoy life.
Words are not enough to explain how good it feels to stay here, you have to go!
We were there in july and we can't wait to come back!

We loved this B & B and would return. It is on Northern Lake George, which is an entirely different place than the Southern park of the lake. Our room was very nice, even with our private bath across the hall. The breakfast each morning was excellent and the hosts lovely.
While I did not have any reaction -- and I am sensitive to dust -- I did feel that the common areas could have used a dusting and polishing.
Plus, we saw and had to kill 2 large brown spiders -- one on the floor of our room and 1 on the vanity in the bathroom -- I guess that is part of being in the country.
Despite that, our experience at this B & B was excellent.

Ruah B & B in the wonderful Adirondack Town of Hague is the perfect location to enjoy the beauty and recreational offerings of Lake George as well as the nearby historical Fort Ticonderoga. Judy and Peter Foster are your congenial hosts who assist in every way to make your stay a pleasant one in their in their beautiful B & B overlooking Hague Bay. We have stayed with Fosters on many occassions over the years, and always look forward to our return. G. & A. T.

With so many places to see in the world, why is it that we have spent at least a week every summer for the past six years at this particular B&B? For a start, there are few places as truly rejuvenating as the beautiful Adirondacks, and the Ruah is situated in a perfect location on a hill overlooking Lake George. The small town of Hague is set apart from the tourist areas, yet has a charming Main Street with a general store, a few family owned restaurants and shops, and even a small museum. There is a public lakeside beach within walking distance of the Ruah, as well as numerous lovely nature trails for hikers. As for the more lively tourist attractions, the town of Bolton's Landing and the bustling Lake George Village are within reasonable driving distance. As for the Ruah itself, it is a residence of great charm and character, beautifully kept and decorated inside and with wonderfully landscaped grounds. The smallest of the guest bedrooms is perfectly comfortable, while the larger ones are enormous. The main living room has an antique piano, which musically-inclined guests may play with permission. The Ruah is operated by an endearing, hospitable, and very knowledgeable husband and wife. The breakfasts are superb and the morning conversations always entertaining and instructive. Most of all, there is a spirit of serenity that rests upon this house and its surrounding area that makes a stay at the Ruah truly restorative. It is this aspect that has kept us coming back every summer.
