It was our first time at the Lamplight Inn, and we stayed in the Rose Room over President's Day weekend. We have been to many B&B's over the past few years and this has been placed in our top two (we can't decide first or second place yet). There are so many details we loved about it. The room and...

My girlfriend and I were so very impressed with the Lamplight Inn. Everything was top notch. Sally, our hostess was very friendly. The room in the Carriage House was very nice and very clean. The jacuzzi was a great way to unwind. As for the breakfast, I have to say it was one of the best breakfasts I have had... More

We have stayed at Gene and Linda Merlino's charming Lamplight Inn more times than I could count (at least 25) since the early 1990s. It is a beautiful, tastefully decorated, romantic B&B in a lovely section of the Adirondacks, halfway between the hustle and bustle of Lake George and the city of Saratoga. Lake Luzerne, across the road, is a... More

This is a great place to go for a romantic weekend getaway. The innkeepers are very helpful upon your arrival. There is a room for everybody; every room has a different theme. The breakfast in the morning is great and never disappointment. If you are looking for something to do Linda and Gene are more than willing to give ideas... More

We loved the Lamplight Inn. It was clean, the staff and owners are friendly, and it was beautiful. It is close to many activities in the Adirondacks. They think of every little detail to make your stay great. The breakfasts every morning are phenomenal. You won't start the day hungry! My only suggestion would be darker curtains. In the room...

Staying in the Lake George Area... make the drive to Lake Luzerne and relax at the Lamplight Inn. We stayed in the very comfortable French Mountain room. The morning's breakfast was 10 for 10 perfect in every way. The other reviews we read are very accurate, you will not be disappointed with your stay. Gene, good luck with the election!

Although it does have the obligatory white lace curtains in all windows, the Lamplight Inn is a delight -- with en suite fireplace, careful attention to detail, friendly hosts, and a superb breakfast served by a lovely staff. Highly recommended. And do take a quiet peaceful walk on the property behind the inn, where you'll find more lichen and fungi... More

Gene and Linda have remade this wonderful old property with style and elegance yet it's still comfortable and invitingly friendly! We stayed in the Victoria Room which was lovely... I wanted to take the whole room home just as it was :-) There were plenty of choices for breakfast. I created my own omelet (yummy and vegetarian), my husband had... More
