Welcome to the The Book Cabin in Lake George, New York! Our bookshop is FULL of the newest and most beloved book titles, gifts for the bibliophile, and unique toys for children and adults. All titles are hand selected to provide the best collection of reading materials in the Adirondacks.
We decided in the fall of 1998 to make Lake George a central part of our life. For twenty years, we visited the area and spent countless days wandering the mountains and the lake’s secret spots. We were waiting for the right time to start building our future and to put our professional heels down in Warren County.
Fast forward to March 2020 (of all years, right?!). While quarantining at our place on Stone Schoolhouse Road, we took daily walks around our neighborhood and the Hearthstone Campground area. Our new puppy needed to be walked for miles! We noticed The Trinity Rock Motel was still for sale. Upon further research, we learned it was actually two separate lots. The motel for sale included the adjacent commercial building which was a beautiful log cabin. We got excited. A business opportunity for both of us? Should we do it? We put in an offer that was accepted and here we are!
While we are focused on opening The Book Cabin in April, our future is bright – full of exciting expansion plans. We hope to enlarge the book store after the motel is fully renovated (keep an eye out for some bookish influence there) and look forward to being a place for the community to gather and share stories.
We welcome locals and visitors to come in and browse our thousands of books and fun activities. We are thrilled to be part of the Lake George community. Come say hello and check us out!
