Great place and wonderful place. Only problem was that their menu claims prawns but we're actually medium shrimp at best. Tasty but not prawns by any means. Again, lovely staff and dinner was great. Looks like a castle

The inn was the highlight of our 30th anniversary vacation. My wife at first was struck by the beauty and charm of the mansion/castle, then she was speechless when she walked into the saint sacrament room, and was amazed by the spaciousness, the 2 person jacuzzi tub in the sitting room, which along with full bathroom with shower and separate...

Just attended a wedding at Erlowest this weekend, and I was completely blown away. Not only is the venue breathtaking, but everyone who works at Erlowest was so kind, professional and ready to help in any way. From start to finish they executed every detail perfectly.

Quiet elegance, outstanding breakfast and dinner served by an attentive waitstaff. Option for evening patio dining near a blazing fire with view of the lake. Comfortable accommodations with all amenities. Overall, the Inn provides a tranquil alternative to the larger hotels.

Thank you for your review of The Inn at Erlowest. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and helped to describe what an experience at Erlowest is like.

Needs updating, old air/con noisy in room!! Staff was ok, some wouldn't go out of their way, not worthy of 4 diamonds, perhaps the standards have dropped everywhere in lake George!!! Won't be back nor will I recommend! Would work better as a retirement home back in 1910!

Lots of very positive items about Erlowest! First, starting with the staff - friendly, helpful and not over bearing. We would especially like to point out Dianna who served us in the dinning room each morning. A great ambassador for Lake George! Loved the location.
