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.

Thank you for choosing The Inn at Erlowest. We apologize if our restaurant service was too intrusive. Our goal is to be attentive, but "invisible" and we must have missed it during your stay.

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. The inn is gorgeous, a former family home that has been converted to 10 wonderful rooms, all different from each other. No children, no smoking. Last year we had an... More

My fiancé took me here for my birthday dinner this past July 4th. I can easily say that the meal I had was one of the top five meals of my entire life.

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

We do appreciate your insight and will be sure that your dining experience meets and exceeds your expectations. Please plan to join us again soon for dinner! More
