If you are looking for a quiet, picturesque place, with beautiful views, excellent staff, and farm fresh food... Look no further! This amazing 10 suite castle just north of the Lake George Village is the place to stay. My wife and i received this as a gift and decided a night alone was just what we needed. Upon our arrival...

This review is long overdue. I stayed in the Lake George room at the end of May and I loved it. The whole place has so much character. So much better than a regular hotel room. Our room was very big, as well as the bathroom. We thoroughly enjoyed the welcome cheese platter and mini champagne. The staff was amazing!... More

I recently had my daughters wedding at this location and couldn't have been happier! Everything from the rooms to the reception were amazing. The food was equally as amazing. The staff was very friendly and went above and beyond to make sure that not only myself but the rest of the guests were taken care of. And I was very... More

This is a fabulous hotel, a little pricey but if you are looking for something special then this is the place to stay, with rooms overlooking the lake, just a couple of miles from the town centre. An old country house/castle built in 1910 with 10 suites all completely different and all furnished in traditional style with lovely furniture, drapes... More

We stayed at this most beautiful B&B for two nights and driving up to the property is just beautiful. Looks like a real castle. The staff could not have been nicer, and very helpful. We were on the second floor in the "Howe" room and it couldn't have been more comfortable. Room was spacious and I had never seen so... 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.
