We rented out a huge block of townhomes for our September wedding at the Erlowest. Our guests are still talking about it! People have told us that our wedding inspired them for a great "wedding weekend." The accomodations are beautiful and brand new, very spacious and have amazing views. It is like a dream! Debbie was very helpful with our... More

We have been vacationing at Sun Castle for the last 20 years. Stayed in both the villas & townhouses; prefer the villas which are rustic A-frame cabins. They are more private with an amazing view. Our villa has 2 bedrooms/2 baths; comfortable king-sized bed in my room with cold a/c units in each room. The bedrooms are in the back... More

We planned a mid-autumn getaway and a return to the Lake George area. This was our first stay here and were so pleasantly surprised with the bi-level townhouse. The view of Lake George was spectacular and the rustic setting was perfect. The townhouse could accommodate 6 guests comfortably - 2 bedrooms and a pull-out sofa in the living room. There... More

Came to stay at the Sun Castle due to a wedding at the Erlowest (see separate review). I was very happy with our accommodations. The two story townhouse was well appointed for a longer stay that just the overnight we had booked for. Two spacious bedrooms upstairs, one with a balcony and an in-room jetted tub. Downstairs had a deck/porch,... More

The cabins are so run down and outdated as is the staff, which has no customer service savvy or class. The out of shape in every way manager and staff makes it worse by being non responsive and argumentive to the simplest of requests, because they do not know better. The cabins are downtrodden and to say theyre rustic is... More

I feel any and every guest has the right to their opinion but I am in a quandary on this particular review, as our Villas are closed for the season. However, I would like to personally "thank you" for highlighting my weight issue in such a public format. More

We have been staying at Sun Castle Resort for over 25 years, from back in the days when Charlie Wood owned the property and the castle was his private home. Many changes have taken place since we first started staying here, but what hasn’t changed is the beautiful view of the lake that this property has to offer. The Castle... More

Girls weekend in one of the townhouses, and it was just right, and would love to return to the same place next year. The grounds are beautiful and appear well maintained. The townhouse was furnished with homey, comfortable furniture, and the kitchen was very well stocked with appliances and tools. We enjoyed the kayaks, and access to the pool. (... More

We have been going to Sun Castle every year since I could remember. The resort is beautiful and the lake is amazing. We stay in the same Villa every year and every year I cry when we leave. The staff is so helpful, and Debbie is by far the most helpful. She will do anything for her guests and works... More

We come once yearly to Lake George and usually stay at the Quarters, which is nice. This year, there were no availabilities anywhere but we did find at the Sun Castle resort. We rented two "villas" for two families. Let us just say the term "villa" does not apply. "Run down shack" is more fitting. The villas look run down... More

We strive for each and every guests comfort and enjoyment. Unfortunately, we can not promptly address issues for our guests when we are unaware of any. We feel that you would have been more comfortable in the townhome that we offered to you, which you declined. More

The main plumbing line was in the basement of our 300 a night cabin so a few times a day you would hear the door below the cabin slam open. After several times hearing this I went down and see grizzly the maintenance man sitting in a chair just hanging out, which was creepy and detracted from the overall privacy... More
