Very nice resort! We stayed a few days in August with our two kids, and was happy with our stay until the last night when some very roudy people moved into the room next door. The music and noise of the group was unbearable! Could hear everything through the walls. They finally chilled out at about 2am. Other than that... More

We enjoyed a family reunion and stunning fall colors at Scotty's in October. This was an excellent venue for a crowd with room to spread out and relax by the lakeside, on the porch, or in the cafe. We even brought board games to play in the cafe area where there are tables and space to spread out and enjoy.... More

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.

I have been staying at here since a little girl in the 70s and continue the tradition now with my family. For those who turned away from Scotty's In past years due to its decline, give Scotty's another try. The new owners are working to make Scotty's a true resort. Improvements in the grounds which are now manicured and systematically... More
