It was amazing the room we had was simply great. Private balcony, jacuzzi and great view of the lake. The food in the restaurant was amazing. It was pricy but well worth it. The service from everyone one there was the best so nice and kind and willing to help with everything. I will be going back there for sure.

We ate both dinner and breakfast at the Inn. We weren't disappointed. Everything was cooked to perfection and the attention to detail was everywhere. It was worth the price and an experience to remember.

Chef Chris Bonnivier creates spectacular dishes which are a feast for the eyes as well as the palate, from a French inspired menu. The Winter squash soup is amazing! Do not visit Lake George without experiencing this superb higher-end restaurant!

This was a lovely experience. Chef Chris Bonnivier is approachable, knowledgable and most importantly, passionate about his cuisine. All the servers are helpful in relaying the details of the menu. And it is an impressive menu. The ambience, the food, the staff- all makes this the best deal in town. A jewel in the Adirondack's.

We had the fortune of dining here during a "polar vortex" when things were quite slow, and were happy to stumble on this snowy castle on a lake. The decor was charmingly classic and old-world.
