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...

So if anybody needs a nice place to stay for a very reasonable price, this is the place to go!! I know I will... More

Tom was full of enthusiasim and impressed as he helped unload luggage in the mist of a dwindleing storm. Room was quaint and very adirondack. I have been doing LG for... More

I went here last summer for a getaway weekend and this place is very accommodating and very close to the village. There is a nice restaurant right next door for late night snacks and love the secluded feel in the woods in a nice cottage. Would definitely go there again to stay and recommended to my friends/family as well.

Stay away if you don't like mold. After staying the night we had to leave, the thought of having to stay another night (we booked two) made me want to cry. Spongy wet carpet in front of the door, the tiny shower uncrusted with black mold, broken sink, toilet that ran, soggy bed linens and blankets, fuzzy t.v. w/few channels,... More
