This shot is of the Hotel Marion Veranda c. 1908; a once-iconic resort that stood on the west bank of Lake George, where we now know to be Lake George Village. I haven’t been able to find out what happened to the Hotel Marion, but obviously, it had a similar ending to many of the grand resorts of its time; lost to expansion and the fast-paced lifestyle of the 20th century.
If you know what happened, share it in our comments section!

Hotel Marion was actually just north of the present Lake George Club on 9n. That land is now developed although some remains of the stone work by the shore and stone work at the road are still there. The area you were referring to in Shepards Park was the Lake House.
Hi..I did some research on what happened to the Hotel Marion and found this:
Hotel Marion on Lake George was actually razed to the ground back in 1949 just 6 years shy of its 100th birthday. Originally built by a wealthy lumberman back in 1855, Hotel Marion became one of the best known hotels in New York. The hotel was originally known as Hotel Marion Lake George, NY.
