We weren't sure what to expect, as this was our first visit to the area. Overall, a reasonable value and great location, pool with view of the Lake, and we liked being able to rent kayaks on the property. Staff were helpful with recommendations for local attractions and restaurants. Some things detracted from the visit, including the WiFi (very slow... More

Located just on the edge of town, this is more like chalets next to each other going down to the lake but if you get the room right next to the lake, I think it was 112 or 113. Well worth the extra $20 for the view in the evening and morning on your balcony, very friendly staff, we even... More

I had read some reviews on this resort and was convinced enough to give it a try, I am glad we did. The resort is set up nicely with an array of activities at the lakes edge. We stayed Columbus day weekend so most of the summer season parts of the resort were closed but looked like they have a... More

We have always had our family reunion at Scotty`s. This was our 7th season. The new owners Chris & Jess are doing a wonderful job! We have returned year after year because the location is second to none. The lakefront property has one of the largest beaches in Lake George, with a large outdoor heated pool over looking the lake.... More

Worked with this hotel to accommodate a group of fellow Mini Cooper owners for an event (Minis in Foliage). This event is in October so there is less going on and we really did not get to experience the pool, boat rentals, and other things going on. The rooms were small but comfortable and were very clean if a little... More

I had a great time at Scott's. I always say you get what you pay for and here you get a little more than you pay for. The rooms are clean. The location is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The beach area with its many fun options for the family (beach volleyball, kayaking$, pool table, ping pong,... More

Spent a few days in August at Scotty's Lakeside Resort. We were very pleased with our stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The Beach and Pool area were great for our family. The Poolside Café was very convenient and reasonably priced. One of the greatest views of the fireworks from the beach. We will definitely be back!

Found this on the internet and booked at the "internet special" rate. Arrived on the date and was given a room key. The room was down a long alley of broken pavement and gravel. The view overlooked weeds and debris. The room itself (which we were told and later verified) was exactly like all of the rooms in the "resort"... More
