The elms waterfront cottages is truly a hidden gem in the Lake Luzerne area. The property is not to long nor to short, everything I've ever needed is in walking distance! The cottages or cabins in its self, has the Adirondack feel to it with beautiful wood work inside!! Nice touch Chandler! I also appreciated the kayak, row boat and... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our weekend getaway from the kids. Our cottage was all we needed, sure there were a couple things that could have been updated ( the bed was very creaky) but we found it cute and quaint. It was very clean and the screened it porch off the front was perfect for having coffee in... More

The first thing that struck me when I checked in to this place and met other families was that most of them were all regulars. Been here past 5 years, 20 years etc !!! That to me speaks about the quality of service and the value factor. Chandler and all of his staff were simply amazing and even accommodated a... More

My wife and I loved our stay at the Elms Cottages because 1. You do not find many true cottages to stay in 2. Had direct access to a small private lake 3. Conveniently located near dining options 4. Close drive to Lake George, without the tourist rush 5. Extremely cozy setting with hammocks, bonfires, available watersports if you have... More

I have been going to The Elms for a few years now and just got back from another great time there. Chandler is very accommodating and makes his rounds every day to talk to his guests. I stayed in #8 this time which was right next to the sandy beach and had a deck on it. Perfect for those amazing... More

Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere or tour this place before booking. Chandler was extremely nice but didn't see him on the property checking on guests at all. We should have trusted our gut when we pulled up to this place located at a busy 4 way intersection that things where not what we expected. We then got a... More

Chandler and staff made us feel welcome and assisted us with all our needs. Great place for the kids and having their Lab, Sasha, able to join us was priceless. Kayaking in the morning was great for all of us, and exploring the area, with directions from the host made the excursions easy and simple. Beautiful country and relaxing surroundings.... More

My family and I stayed on Saturday August 8th, 5 children and two adults. Our toilet got clogged up around 8pm, and remained like that until the next morning at 10am!!! Since there was no maintenance onsite to help us. The maintenance guy working on it mentioned that the toiled had the same issue a few weeks ago and probably... More
