My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at the inn for one night. We had a perfect time and were treated so well by all the staff. We were upgraded to the Erlowest Suite and it was BEAUTIFUL! We were there in May, midweek. The cheese and wine tray you receive upon arrival was delicious and really made... More

Our son was married 2 weeks ago at the Inn At Erlowest. Most of our family and friends stayed both at the Inn and Suncastle Resort. Alexis and her staff at the Inn were an absolute delight to work with. They knocked it out of the park!! The staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating to us all. The personal... More

Wonderful place to stay as long as you keep a few things in mind. Weekends are always booked for weddings - as in Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This may be "no big deal" or it could be "I didn't expect this much noise". That is why the weekends are booked 6 months in advance - it's all wedding parties. If... More

I recently took my 85 year old Mother on a road trip to the Lake George area. For three glorious nights we stayed at the Inn at Erlowest. We had saved and scrimped in order to afford our stay. It did not disappoint, it was worth every penny. The staff were amazing, so friendly and warm, like most Americans. The... More

The Inn at Erlowest is hard to characterize. Gothic castle-like it overlooks Lake George with multiple decks and a fire placed patio facing the lake. Everything suggests solidity and elegance from the furniture, the massive front door and the dining room (more on that later). Parking is convenient and the staff well trained and very helpful. We had to change... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Inn at Erlowest and we both came away very impressed. The decor was both elegant and welcoming, and our room, which included a lovely view of the lake, was amazing. We were welcomed to our room upon arrival by champagne and a plate of cheese, crackers and fruit. After turn-down, we were... More

I've never stayed at the Inn at Erlowest, but I've attended two weddings there. It is a truly beautiful place that in many ways transports you to a different time. The main ballroom is lovely, with large doors looking out over Lake George. There is also a charming little bar that reminds me of a library. I think the best... More

I married the man of my dreams at the location of my dreams on May 31, 2014. The castle is an elegant and peaceful location for any special event. The food and decor were perfect. Every detail was handled expertly by the staff, especially Alexis Wallace and Laurie Jones. I truly felt like a princess and was treated like one.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Inn in early June. The staff was wonderful, the room was beautiful, the views and ambiance were great. Breakfast was very nice - relatively full menu to order from with service. I particularly enjoyed having access to the kayaks - went out three times in the two days and thought it... More
