Lake George is one of New York State's most celebrated vacation spots. Located in the Adirondacks, it is famous for its 32-mile lake, which draws thousands of seasonal residents in the summer. But as lovely as Lake George is in warm weather, the area strives to attract visitors year-round to enjoy its breathtaking scenery and all-season destinations like Adirondack Winery and the Fort William Henry Museum.

In the winter, nearby mountain resorts like Gore Mountain and West Mountain offer skiing and snowboarding; in the summer, you can hike Prospect Mountain and nearby Shelving Rock Falls, then soak up some sun at Million Dollar Beach before hitting up local eateries like The Saltwater Cowboy, which serves stellar lobster rolls, and bakery Caffe Vero.

If any of that sounds appealing to you, consider this three-bedroom, two-bath log house at 11 Village Estates Lane, now on the market for $789,000. The 1,688-square-foot house, which is part of Lake George's high-end Village Estates Community, was built in 1941 and was remodeled in 1990; it retains a lot of its original design, as you can see in the living room.

There's also a vintage-looking wood-burning stove.

It looks like there's an additional, newer living space that's lined with windows.

It has a lovely stone fireplace.

There's a little nook for dining.

The sleek-looking kitchen has stainless steel appliances.

One of the baths has a glass-enclosed standing shower, in addition a washer/dryer.

It looks like the master bedroom has private patio access.

An additional bedroom has bunk beds and a more traditional log cabin aesthetic.

There's also a very cool-looking built-in lofted area.

And here's the third bedroom.

Upstairs, there's an attic-like area you could use as another living room or turn into an office.

Outdoor space includes a small stone patio.

And a second small patio for outdoor dining.

There's a shed for storage.

Best of all, there's a private lakeside beach.

And a boating dock with access to a gazebo and beautiful views.
