We go every year. It is an amazing place to go. We catch up with friends and swim in the lake. FOOD: Very good. Breakfest: very good selections. waffles, pancakes, omlets and much,much more! Lunch: AMAZING LUNCH! I'm not a breakfest fan but lunch is amazing. Meat lovers, vegans,vegetarians, diabetics will have a great selection. *NOTE: LUNCH IS NOT FREE... More

We were greeted by Susan as we checked in early! Our room was not ready (as they mentioned when we made telephone reservations) when we arrived, but we were able to start our vacation with a sailboat ride with Joe ( the Resort Manger). After the kids finished the ping pong game they started while we where checking in! Although... More

We have just returned from another amazing Canoe Island vacation. We have gone the same week for the past 6 or 7 years. We have made dear friends--both for us and the kids. The room is always clean and well-kept. The chamber maids keep everything so clean and neat--even after thekids have made a mess of their stuff. The breakfast... More

A friend who grew up in lake george area suggested our family of 4 (kids 8 and 11) try Canoe Island and we were happy we did. The rooms are not fancy at all, but big enough, comfortable and were cleaned each day. The layout of the resort is such that the kids can safely go off on their own... More

I cannot say enough about Canoe Island Lodge as a family vacation destination. It is a perfect place to relax and spend quality time with your family. I have been coming here with my family for many years and even though I have extensively traveled the US and Europe, there is just something special about this place. Breakfast and dinner... More

We stayed (my husband & I) at CIL for the 2nd year in a row during their September Oktoberfest weekend. It is the only time we are able to get away together without our 2 young children, so we really look forward to this weekend every year. Like our previous visit, our room was very clean and spacious. We stayed... More

We all wished that we could've extended our trip another week. Staff was super friendly and accomodating as were the owners when we ran into them... More

Like 80% of the guests at Canoe Island lodge, I'm a "repeater." My family has been staying at CIL for over the 30 years, always the same week every year. You don't find places like Canoe Island too often anymore...so if you have the chance, definitely take advantage of staying here. What makes it great for families is that you... More

This lodge has a lot of potential. It is very run down. For the price it should have been nicer. Food is mediocre.
