The Inn at Erlowest was at first a bit of a surprise. It was not entirely what we had hoped for in that the building appeared like a combo of a new structure attempting to replicate a castle. I'm a bit sensitive to architectural design and responded negatively to the building's facade and a few property details which looked a... More

My husband and I were really in need of a getaway, our time at the Inn last week was exactly what we needed! When I saw the Inn online; I thought, this is too good to be true - there must be a catch. So, I booked our stay and we hoped for the best. As soon as you drive... More

All 10 rooms are very good. Some have fireplaces and jacuzzi. A great experience! Everyone should experience this once in their lifetime. Has an outdoor seating area. Great for a small wedding/honeymoon. Pool for the kids.

Beautiful rooms that have fabulous decorations all over. The dining is also great. The restaurant was a 5 star in the past but I'm not sure what it is rated at lately. The view of Lake George is wonderful and you can walk down to the pool, dock or beach.

I recently stayed at The Inn at Erlowest for two nights. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short one night due to illness, which was a huge disappointment considering how quickly we fell in love with this inn. Located overlooking the shores of Lake George,this beautiful mansion, which was renovated into an Inn, was perfection from start to finish. Ashley, who... More

The Inn was fantastic. Very historic, beautiful, and well maintained. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were creative and delicious. Our room was comfortable and well appointed with a great bathroom. Nice views of Lake George from both deck levels and our room. The only reason for 4 stars is that the condos below the Inn mar the... More

My wife and I went there in June and liked it so much we returned today again. We live around and so we know most places. This one is very classy, tasty and cozy. I definitely recommend it. The only thing that annoyed me was the waiter was a bit too talkative. Otherwise a great place.

The new chef is terrific, and very creative in the menu selections. The dining room is charming, with attentive but not intrusive service. Breakfast is included with your room fee.
