Restaurant
“Nestled on a brook in the small hamlet of Hague, at the Northern end of Lake George, the Hague Firehouse Restaurant offers casual American dining and fresh creative cuisine. Owners Sheri DeLarm and Crispin Ginn transformed what was once an old firehouse into a contemporary restaurant space with a large refurbished bar and a wall of glass that opens to an outdoor terrace overlooking the brook. A nod to the building's former life is seen through the restaurant's industrial decor.”
