There are so many good reviews, all I can say is "DITTO" to it all. I was there for one week in July and one week in August. We hit a heat wave in July, so it was really uncomfortable in the room.... but there's so much to do all day that you're hardly ever in your room anyway..... and... More

I visited this past August and I have to say that Silver Bay is one of the best retreats I have ever visited. If you are looking for a very relaxing place where you can get away from the whirlwind of everyday live (internet, cellphones, etc...) but still have a little access so you don't feel like you are in...

I didn't know that places like this still existed!I It seems like an idealized resort from the 50's. I didn't see one belly, tattoo or piercing or hear one swear word. Everyone was polite and friendly. Many guests have been coming with their families for many generations. The setting is spectacular-700 acres on Lake George-and there are diversified physical and...

We have been coming to Silver Bay annually for almost two decades, to attend a denominational conference. It is a place we -- and other conference attendees -- look forward to all year. I'll describe it -- but there is no way to describe the renewal of body, mind and spirit which graces our stay every time. This is a... More

Heading back to Silver Bay in a couple of weeks. It's a great family fun location on a clean and quiet lake. water sports are king here if you ask me. The lake is pristine and the grounds are always well maintained. Select your lodging carefully to fit your style. Some rooms are little more than 4 walls and a... More

There is no place quite like Silver Bay. It's primarily a conference ground, and most of the clientelle will be attending the conference of the week, but non-participating guests will not feel isolated, and in fact may take advantage of conference group activities in the evening. There is a strong emphasis on religion, including multicultural studies of world religions. Sunday's... More

We visited Silver Bay for a weekend in August, and it was a perfect place to relax, enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities and spend time with family. The grounds are beautiful, with wonderful views and access to Lake George. The Inn is charming, the boathouse is picturesque and the gym facilities are outstanding. We enjoyed swimming in the...

It was amazingly beautiful. Lake George....If you love outdoor, this is the place to be. This nature welcome you in very warm way and let you be a part of it. Every corner you walk, it is wonderful views. Nice people and a lot of fun outdoor activities. I specially loved Kayaking. You just melt into the beautiful Lake George.... More

We attended our family reunion here in July of 2011. The grounds are large and well maintained. We stayed in the main building where the rooms had private baths as the other buildings did not. There was no air conditioning and the room had two single beds complete with super squeaky floors! Our package came with 3 meals per day... More
