I have visited the Amber Latern Motel 2x this season. The Amber Latern has everything a family needs. The fact that the Amber Latern has a pool, play area with jungle gym, basketball hoop, volleyball, ping pong table and a fire pit makes they stay much easier with children of all ages. The office is kept open so that the... More

I was there from June 22nd to June 28th and I got a nice deal for the week... because it was before the "summer opening season", The place is quiet, even if it's close to the road. We could hear cars, but nothing too annoying. However, the cottages are outdated. I didn't think pictures, but it was fine if you... More

We took a last minute vacation for the weekend and we were very happy that we weren't staying for a full week. We booked a two double bed room but would have preferred a queen or king room so we could've shared a bed. They only had single double beds available. Way too small for us to share. The shower...

While we had a nice time here, the rooms are extremely outdated. The carpet was old, the beds were terrible and I doubt the bathroom had ever been renovated. Housekeeping here means they take your dirty towels and give you clean ones. Tom was extremely helpful and always very pleasant.

While attending to family business in Albany, we decided to sneak off to Lake George at the last minute. After several unsuccessful attempts to find a place to stay, we were fortunate to find the Amber Lantern. Our Cottage was cozy and clean, and Tom (the Owner) went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed... More

We visited with about 7 other couples when the hotel / cottages we wanted were already booked. The owners of the first hotel suggested this place due to its proximity to them. The pictures online were quaint, but when you first arrive, you'll realize that is where the quaintness ends. The owner was very nice, the units were generally clean,... More

The Amber Lantern is an old-school Adirondack resort, and it appears not much, if anything, has changed since it was built (1930s?). Nine cabins are situated close together, among mature trees and the property is attractively landscaped and clean. There’s a pool that we made use of, with lots of lounge chairs. It was rather small and not very kid-friendly... More

My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights at Amber Lantern where Tom and his family treated us very nice! They were available for anything we needed. We're not high maintenance so we didn't need to ask for anything other than general area directions. The place was very clean and the owner, Tom, is very up-front with what he offers. Definitely...
