Boat Washing on Lake George

May 30th, 2014

As some of you may have heard in previous years, Lake George, like many lakes in the United States, was experiencing problems with invasive species.   The Asian clam, watermilfoil, zebra muscles and the spiny water flea are just a few that have plagued Lake George.    Since the waterways are connected it opens the door for the species to spread.   In order to gain control over the problem Lake George is taking a HUGE step in…

May 26th, 2014

During the winter months we are always doing something. You would think since we work so hard throughout the open season that we may just kick our heels up and relax… no way! One of the projects from the 2013 / 2014 winter was to take the old deck railings from The Boathouse Lakeside Terrace off and replace them with tempered glass railings. The glass railings have really made a difference in the space, the…

Winter Wonderful!

January 17th, 2013

While most people think of Lake George as a summer town we forget the beauty of the area in the winter.    Here are photos taken around the resort in the last few weeks.  Not too bad, huh?   This first photo was taken on a very chilly morning in early January.  The temperature when the photo was taken was -9 degrees!   This was taken looking at the Boathouse from the grassy area near our pool.   Again,…

Abenia Estate – The History of Our Property

November 1st, 2012

The property that The Boathouse Restaurant stands on has a lot of history.   We did a little internet research on sites such as Wikipedia and found a lot of information in the book Millionaires’ Row on Lake George, NY by author and historian William Preston Gates. Lake George, NY was a summertime playground for the most wealthy Americans.   Many of the richest Americans built “cottages” on the lake.   These “cottages” consisted of large homes including multiple bedrooms…
