Hague is a cool green Adirondack Lake George town, shaded a bit by the mountains to the west. It has an area of 80 square miles. But it is far from all the congestion one finds in season in Lake George Village and Bolton. One of the town's biggest landmarks is Sabbath Day Point, which is now state land full of trails. There are small stores and inns abounding during season but no chain stores or even auto fuel for sale. But Ticonderoga is an easy 20 minute drive if you want to get all the large suburban style stores and fast food joints. The town has a great park on the lake with a large swimming area and even a small public marina on the side.
The stretch of Route 8 east from Brant Lake is a great stretch through mostly wilderness areas of the Graphite Mountains. There are hill climbing lanes and lots of passing zones too. The only part that is hazardous is the last couple of miles that lead down hill into Hague to the lake. It is curvy and there are many camps and houses, though it isn't as bad as the stretch along Brant Lake where the road is 10 feet from some house's front doors. Route 9N is a dangerous drive in bad weather or traffic south towards Lake George due to narrow roadway, lots of curves and steep hills over Sabbath Day Point. But north bound towards Ticonderoga, 9N is a much easier drive.
