If you book this place make sure you take all of u our camping equipment. It's an old room with a tiny bathroom. I asked the owner for coffee and he held up his coffee that he advised me they make down the street at the deli. The rec hall had a ping pong table and 5 video game machines.... More

As we have for the past 25+ years we visited Carey's. Bill and his Mom continue to great you by name and make you feel like you have come home. We have stayed at the Sagamore many times, as well as other places in the Lake George region. I've seen some of the reviews commenting on "Thin towels, no free... More

My cousin and I usually stay at a motel in the village but they want a 2 night minimum. She and her daughter came up last month and came upon Careys and decided to try it. They loved it! So when she and I came up last week we booked Careys for one night then a change of plans allowed... More

Nice place to stay while in bolton. Easy to get to town, rustic feel, fireplace in room. Nice little beach, rowboats to use. Clean, spacious rooms. Wi- if not so great, but I came here to use the great outdoors, so I didn't care. Fair prices for the area, summer rates. I would stay here again

Price of rooms a couple cups of coffee a day and shampoo... More

I have stayed at Carey's for the past three years for Americade. I always found it a nice comfortable place to stay. The one strange concept at booking is you can't book until April 1st and you have to mail a check. I find this outdated in today's electronic world. So I stayed last year and tried to book for...

Enjoyable stay ...My room had a stone fireplace and kitchenette which was a nice addition. Kayaks and rowboats available to guests BBQ's and picnic tables available to guests. Great view from the dock. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too pleasant during my stay . Hope to go back in the future

Loved this place. Met several people who had been coming to Carey's for decades, now bringing their own children there. Rooms are large, high ceiling and solid wood construction. A little dark - poor sunlight and there's no overhead bulb. Clean, no dingy motel feeling to them. Rooms have wood burning fireplaces! It has a fairly private feel to it,... More

This is the place we stay at year after year when we can get up to Lake George. Their prices are GREAT. We always make sure to get a room with a fireplace and kitchenette. They supply firewood! The rooms are small, but room enough for what you need to do, besides you don't spend much time in there when... More
