My wife's family has spent an August week at Canoe Island Lodge every year since 1981. That's 34 years. I married into this vacation 21 years ago. My children and my wife's sisters' children have grown up looking forward to and enjoying this vacation each year. And now five grandchildren have joined in the fun. Why do we go back... More

So Canoe Island was a bit of a letdown. It fell short in certain areas. Being a non-repeat customer, my review is unbiased. The setting is beautifully centered on the lake. There is massive customer loyalty here. Repeat customers for 10, 20 years. This is a place people grew up with. But I think that is where it's downfall begins.... More

We vacationed here the summer of 2010, so this review is a bit late, but we had such a great experience I just had to write this. We're a family of four and our kids were 10 and 6 at the time. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food was outstanding. There was so much to do at CIL... More

This Lodge exceeded my expectations. The meals were excellent and the staff was very friendly. I must mention Carla who whenever I had contact with her she went out of her way to help A great place for families with plenty of activities for the kids.

If you are looking for a simple, safe, family oriented location on Lake George for a vacation, the Canoe Island Loge is a very good pick. The log cabins/lodges are right on the lake with a small beach. In additon, the Lodge has it's own private island right in Lake George. They offer free sailing, etc. Activities for kids. Breakfast...

I have been to CIL over ten times--and each time is great. The lake is beautiful and clean. I learned to water ski and sail on this lake. Breakfast and dinner are included, while lunch is available for purchase. I'd recommend eating lunch at the Windjammer. The hotel owns their own island, and owns many boats which can take you...

My family loves to spend time at Lake George each summer. We usually go to the Sagamore every year but found it hard to pay $1,000 night for a room that accommodates 4 people comfortably so we decided to try something new. We don't like the chaos of Lake George Village so we found Canoe Island Lodge in Diamond Point,... More

My family stayed here for a week in July 2014. This is a 1st year, so we were in the Red wood cabins. After you stay one year, you are guaranteed the same room and week the following year as long as you inform them by February that you want to rebook. As other reviews said, breakfast and dinner is...

Pack you beach wear and join the fun. This is a traditional summer get away offering a variety of accommodations from hotel rooms to cabins to homes, something for everyone. The pricing includes breakfast and dinner making it one of the few "no hassle" options available. Located midway between LG Village and Bolton Landing the resort has a wonderful waterfront,... More

Had a great time at the end-of-summer outing. The food was great and the quantity of it was plentiful. Had fun with family and friends. Very family oriented and seemed quite a good place if you have kids. Not sure how a person traveling solo would fare as it seems set up for couples/families, but I'm sure the owner and... More
