This is a great place for families. The kids had a great time in the pool, lake, and playground. We barbequed, ate breakfast at the cafe, and enjoyed walks into town. There is a Price Chopper-supermarket nearby, and we were able to get a refrigerator and microwave in our room. Staff were attentive and courteous.

Having never stayed directly on Lake George before, it was a great find to stay at Scotty's Lakeside Resort. While we had to change cabins for each of the two nights we stayed, the staff was wonderful in moving our fridge items and letting us know when we could move to our next room. Rooms are being upgraded and they... More

I love this place and can't wait to come back. Next time my stay will be much longer. If you are looking to unwind, unplug and go back to the basics, this is the place! The beautiful lake shore is a minute from your door. The cafe (serves coffee, breakfast and lunch and ice cream until 6pm) and bar are... More

REALLY a 5minute walk into the village. Great spot on the lake, plenty of things to do on the property for all ages, but also quiet if that's what you're looking for. The snack bar is more of a full and casual breakfast and lunch spot, so you don't have to leave the property unless you want to. New fridges... More

This is a great place for a quiet family vacation. The view of Lake George is spectacular. Everything is within walking distance. Snack bar (see Patrick, he was very helpful) and bar are on the property. Rooms are clean and bright. I highly recommend Scotty's.

Had an amazing stay at Scotty's this past weekend! The location was perfect-walking distance to dtown Lake George, room was clean with lake views & so much to do on-site. My friends and I certainly enjoyed the convenience of a bar right at the private beach! Staff was A++ will most def be coming back for another stay.

We stayed at Scotty's Lakeside Resort for a long weekend in mid-August and are very happy we did! It was everything we anticipated and more. The pool and beach area were great for lounging, but there were a lot of fun, outdoor activities to do as well, like ping-pong, corn-hole and volleyball. We rented paddle boards, kayaks and hydrobikes from... More

We booked a room called a 2 room suite. It turned out to be a no room suite. The only door inside was for the bathroom. Complete disappointment as we were expecting 2 separate bedrooms. Brought this to the front desk's attention and they said we don't write the room descriptions and there is nothing they can do about it.... More

Really wanted to love this place - knew it would be outdated but kind of loved that - made me feel like I took a step back in time to old family vacations. Beds are new and very comfortable and room was clean but oh, the shower. Shower would go from scalding to icy cold without touching the knobs. Spent... More

We are a family of five and so so disappointed. The rooms are small and cramped, low ceilings, no closet. The Wifi had terrible connection and the shades were broken. Although the view on the beach was nice, it did not make up for everything else. Not worth the $$$$.
