We went for 2 nights for a couples getaway. Took advantage of a Groupon deal and saved a lot! Beautiful place with a real nice theme, and our room was very nice as well. Staff was very accommodating. Plenty of things to do between spa, gym, waterpark, Greek Peak, & adventure center. As part of our stay we were allowed... More

My fiancé and I decided to take a three day vacation to hope lake lodge. Due to the weather we couldn't do many outdoor activities and the outdoor pool was closed. We arrived early because the check in time is 4:00 which was a bit late. We went to the water park which was full of unsupervised kids and teenage... More

My family just had the most fabulous time at Hope Lake Lodge and Greek Peak. We are a family of four and just spent 2 days and 1 night, and had an even better mini-vacation than we had dreamed for. Our twelve-year old son, city-kid, went up there, never having skiied before. I was shocked and very pleasantly surprised at... More

I took my wife and three kids to the Hope Lake Lodge over winter break for a 3 night stay. I've been to other similar places in Lake George so I thought it would be a fun diversion. When we arrived I was shown my stay amount was an additional $1000 over what I confirmed at. The front desk manager... More

This is the second visit and can't wait to go again. We spent New Years here and it was fantastic. The room was spacious with a fireplace and a full kitchen.

We booked a Roaring Brook Suite Loft during president week for two nights. The upstairs queen bed was lumpy, by morning our bodies were in pain. There was no hot water, we had to call maintainance. I had to take cold shower in zero degrees outside, by afternoon I was sneezing. There was no dishwashing liquid, I had to ask... More

Last week we enjoyed a stay at Hope Lake Lodge. We were there from Saturday to Friday and enjoyed every moment. We do not ski but were still able to enjoy the Lodge to its fullest.

Had a great time over all at the resort, however it must be said that having the pool/hot tub/water park only open until 7 PM on all days other than Fri and Sat is truly a let down. Also the web-site promotes the outdoor pool open year round, but for us it was closed every day we were there because... More
