We have young children and have been twice. It is our favorite place to stay: the accommodations are great. It feels like being at home - full kitchen to cook, comfortable beds, and lots of space. Balcony that looks out over the most beautiful lake in America. Plenty for the kids to do: 2 beaches for them to play in... More

Went to Lake George and was recommended to stay at Sun Castle! It could not have been any better! Location and view was great, the staff were wonderful and the accommodations were clean and everything expected. I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling North visiting Lake George, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed there for a wedding, I thought it was overpriced for the off season. Pool and rec area were closed. When we arrived temperature in townhouse was in the 40s. Two windows were open. We had to close windows and set the temperature high, it was not comfortable for several hours. There was also a filthy casserole dish on... More

Attended a wedding in August, the food and hall was fantastic, but the accommodations were sloppy, cob webs in the bathroom, dirty stained carpets in the hall and bedroom and a few light bulbs were burnt out. The kitchen pots and pans were a few seasons overdue for replacement and there was "0" coffee filters. The price paid for the... More

The Sun Castle Resort is a decent place to stay, but not somewhere I'd go again. When we got to our unit, the air conditioning was turned off. The counters were covered with a layer of water/moisture as well as the mirrors in the bathrooms. Even the stair railing was sticky. The unit was not clean as I like, but... More

My husband surprised me for my birthday with a trip to Lake George. We had two town homes 8A & 8B. We arrived at night so I wasn't really impressed upon arrival. The townhouse was clean and simply appointed with all of the essentials. In the morning I was wowed by the beautiful view of the lake! I wanted to... More

We stayed in a townhouse, Unit 7B for a few nights. The location of the resort is unbeatable - right on the water. There are docks which guests could use for their boats. Kayaks were free to use. There is an outdoor pool with a slide which the kids liked The townhouse itself was spacious, but I really thought that... More

Let's get it straight, this is no 5-(even 4) star resort. Expectation is everything, and thanks to some reviews, I came to Sun Castle expecting much more than what is there. That said, if you want beautiful views of Lake George, clean (yet dated) accommodations, then this place is wonderful. My family rented both villas and townhouses, and let me... More

For a place with its own boat launch, docks,beach, and trailer parking i could not ask for anything more! With a little bit of patience I have never found a more accommodating staff as it is a large property with weddings and vacationers coming and going. If you are demanding, in a rush, incompetent and feel like the resort should... More

Thank you for your Thank You! The staff appreciates so many of our guests and loves getting to know them year after year on their vacations. We look forward to seeing you again next summer. Or maybe you will even consider a weekend getaway in the fall as the foliage is incredible as well. More

Stayed for a week here in July with our two kids and were very pleased. Sun Castle is right on the water and each of the townhouses and villas have a view of the lake -- although some have views that are obstructed by the trees. We stayed in 20B, which is set farther back from the water and although... More
