Ruah Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Hague B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 September 2016

Hague is on the northern end of Lake George which is quiet and beautiful. The Ruah is a beautiful old building that is in need of maintenance and fresh decor. Our room was large with a lovely view of the lake, but it was in need of new shades and the doors need repair. The breakfasts were adequate but not creative. This is not an inexpensive place to stay. Compared to other bnb's on this trip, this place was not my favorite.

This is a beautiful 1907 house across the road from Lake George, with a view of the lake somewhat marred by telephone poles and power lines. We stayed in the Flirtation Room, which had a very comfortable bed and a shared balcony overlooking the lake with lounge chairs. You have to go a few steps in the hall to get to the spacious bathroom. The breakfast, which is not served until 9 AM, was fine except that the syrup for the waffles was not real maple syrup, which is a no-no in New England where we come from.

You should be aware that the inn is for sale. The current owners have been there for 35 years, and are ready to retire. Hopefully, new owners will have desire and enthusiasm.

Overall a pleasant B&B. Nice sized rooms. Beautiful décor and garden. Nice view of Lake George. About 20 minutes to Ft Ticonderoga. at first I thought the road was going to be noisy, but I did not notice any noise after 10pm. Only 4 rooms so you get personalized service. Shared upstairs porch off your rooms, but planters between each area give a feel of a private porch. Breakfast was a full meal - juice, coffee, pastry, eggs/waffles, fruit. Refrigerator in laundry room is there for your use. There is not TV in your room (nice to have to read a book) but there is a common TV area which I did not use so I cannot comment on that, Owners are pleasant. Maid service was good. No complaints. Price was reasonable and actually less than many B&B I have stayed at. There are several quaint restaurants in the area. We did not use or go down to the lake, so I cannot comment on it, but I did not hear a lot of jet ski noise, which I often do at other lakes. We could listen to the birds. The living room is big as is the porch, so if you are rained in there is room to sit and read or play a game and not be cramped in your room. It is a 110 year old house, so expect some dated things, like old-style bathtubs, no TV or Microwave in your room, in window A//C etc. But that is the attraction of a older B&B for us. Does have free WiFi that was strong enough to stream NetFlix. Charming. Would definitely stay here if I travel that way again.

Nearby Ft Ticonderoga is awesome. There are museums, gardens, tours, demonstrations of musket, cannon and Drum & Fife bands. we stayed there 6 hours and did not see it all. Lake George has several attractions and boat rides.

We always stay at B&B's and Inns during our travels, and there is no question this is the most elegant Victorian we have ever stayed at. Judy and Peter not only have given this beautiful home the care it deserves, but treated us just as well! (wait until you get breakfast!) Thank you so much- our bedroom and fireplace were amazing!

Historic Victorian home converted to a B&B overlooking northern Lake George.
Wonderful hosts, Judy and Peter Foster couldn't have been more amenable and inviting. The home was featured in several very high end magazines and was the subject of a 6 page spread in House Beautiful. Views from our room, the Queen of the Lakes were spectacular. There is an adjoining 60 ft porch that also is a balcony on the second floor accessible from three of the bedrooms. Very private, classic upscale Victorian furnishings... their attention to detail in every way was a wonderful experience. A full breakfast was healthy and included fruits, sausages, egg and cheese cassarole, interesting homemade breads with coffee or tea, orange juice, served buffet style from an antique sideboard while guests were seated at a large elongated dining table that was bright with natural light from the numerous windows with wonderful views.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a fireplace and private bathroom. The sumptuous bed was very comfortable with lo...
