The setting of this place is beautiful and convenient. We had lake side access with use of the resorts kayaks, paddle boats, and paddle boards which made for great memories and beautiful views of fall colors. Close to town made for a nice leisurely walk to little shops in town. Plenty of space at facility for our family to eat... More

If you want to get away and visit Lake George I highly recommend you stay at Scotty's Lakeside Resort. I stayed there on Labor Day weekend and it was wonderful. It has the old time charm of a lakeside resort with a beautiful little beach and view of the lake. I understand there are new owners there making changes and... More

Stayed here for one night- 9/26 and checked into rooms 120 and 121. Liked the clean and renovated rooms. The location is just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Canada Street, although it is an uphill climb. Our experience was spoilt somewhat by a rude guest in the room 119, who sat on his porch right... More

Our stay at Scotty's was very enjoyable. We were lakefront and the pool was only a few steps away. Beyond was their beach and beautiful Lake George. We really had an advantage to be able to see the Thursday night fireworks that the Village sets off (no getting in your car and trying to find a parking space which can... More

I have been staying at here since a little girl in the 70s and continue the tradition now with my family.

I am a local resident of Lake George, and I always try to go around to bars in the area to get a good view of the Thursday night summer fireworks, and the Saturday night event fireworks, and Scotty's is a great location!

I had an excellent stay while at Scotty's. The rooms were great but with a breathtaking view over the lake with the scenic mountains in the background, we didn't spend much time in our room other than to sleep.

The nicest part of staying at Scotty's Lakeside Resort is the view of the lake. I had my breakfast sitting on the tables and chairs right on the lake. It was a nice way to start the day.

I haven't been here in 10 years but I was very pleased. The new owners have done some renovations which were nice. My only complaint would be my bathroom.
