This was our fist trip to the Chelka Lodge and we were not disappointed. The grounds are beautiful and our room was spacious and very clean. Dave and Judy were wonderful hosts. As we were driving back to Rhode Island from our extended Memorial Day weekend, we began planning a return trip to the Chelka Lodge in June for Father's... More

Just wanted to write a few words to the owners....a little paint and a power washer goes a long way ! You , as owners must see the need that every day upkeep is important ...like sweeping , taking spiders webs from stairs,painting etc. Having been in the Hospitality Service for a better part of our lives...you need to step...

Management response:

We appreciate this feedback and the opportunity to respond to it. Upkeep is constant, especially in the Adirondacks, where we battle spiders and other “critters” every day. We do this on a consistent basis; however, noting this comment, we will be even more diligent. Also, each year we do at least one major project. Last year we rebuilt the sea... More

I had a great time as usual. Dave and Judy are so nice and accommodating. I can't wait for my return trip next year. The grounds are just beautiful and well maintained.

Stunning view/location. That is about the best thing I can say about this place. The rooms are outdated & could/should be cleaner. The floors are paper thin & if you are on the bottom floor, it will sound as though your upstairs neighbors are coming through the floor. The owner is an absolute Jerk! It doesn't matter if you have... More

We travel to the ADKs very often and do not like staying in the town of Lake George (too touristy!) but love the more northern areas of the lake! So we decided to try Chelka Lodge for our 4th of July trip. The location was great! Great views, sandy beach and swimming area, kayaks to use, and grassy sitting area!... More

The Chelka is a true Lake George and Adirondack classic. The location on the lake is perfect and the property is well maintained and comfortable. Compared to some of the other lodging options in the area (I've stayed at about a half dozen or so other places on the lake over the years), the Chelka is certainly a classic among... More

We have been to LG many many times, but this was the first time we spent at the Chelka Lodge. We were nervous about our choice since we had only seen pictures of it on line, however, once we arrived our fears were put to rest. The room was spacious and clean with a spectacular view of the lake. The... More

The Chelka Lodge turned out to be the perfect place to escape from our crazy day to day lives. Nestled nicely under beautiful Pine Trees, there was a beautiful view of the lake from almost any spot on the property....just what we were looking for. Each morning we awoke to birds singing and a beautiful breeze coming off the Lake.... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Chelka Lodge. Once I saw the pictures online I knew that it would be a relaxing place to stay and I was right. The grounds are very well kept. The owners are absolutely wonderful and accommodating. The dogs are beautiful but yes if you leave food around they will eat it. For the most... More
