We liked being right on Lake George, especially for 4th of July weekend. Nice play area for kids and families. Room was clean and adequate. Disappointed when coffee and fixings weren't cleaned up and replaced each day. Office staff was welcoming but others didn't wave back in passing. Seemed unfriendly. Other guests were fun. Had grills for cooking, docks for... More

The location is perfect if you don't mind walking to shops. The staff was extremely friendly. The rooms were clean, but are older (could use some updating). Free wifi on premises was a bonus. The view of the lake was perfect and it was nice having some beach as well.

I like this place for families...has playground, pool, beach, boats, heated pool... Bad points, food rip off...$5.95 for bacon, egg and cheese and doesn't include coffee...smoking allowed everywhere so non-smokers have to just "deal" with it. Which is annoying because we are here to enjoy the fresh air and everywhere you go from your front porch to the beach someone... More

This place is neat, clean and with a friendly staff. There are no 5 star resorts around the lake. This property has an advantage of location. Would defiantly come back again if I visit Lake George. By the way their beds were 5 star hotel quality. For its class (3star hotel) can't get any better

We stayed 3 nights as a family of 5. We had an updated 2 room suite. The room was clean, and they had very comfortable beds! The staff was very friendly, and there was plenty to do right on the property. Nice little beach and and comfortable heated pool. We had a great time and will be back!

My husband and I went there for his birthday/father's day. The view was gorgeous. There was restaurant, bar, pool and beach. We didn't have to leave! Everything was right there. There was also music, swings and playground for the kids. A Ping pong table and net for volleyball. We really enjoyed our stay!

What a phenomenal weekend at this family-run resort ! Rooms were very clean and spacious, we had 2 queen size beds in the room that were extremely comfortable and much needed after spending the days on the beautiful lake and the evenings in the quaint town (a few minutes walk away). The swimming pool, the breakfast/lunch spot, the volleyball, the... More

I will begin with the cons of this stay-because there is only one. The room was a bit dated, but I have found most hotels in this area are not very modern. However, it is perfect for this area. The hotel was clean, quiet, and the staff were all very friendly. I love that this hotel is within walking distance... More
