“Great Accommodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011

WELL KEPT FACILITY. Judy & Dave are very polite and take pride in making your visit pleasant. Very, very peaceful and beautiful view of the cove and lake. Screened in Gazebo for evening relaxing. Away from the crowds yet close if you want. Great restaurants 5 minutes away.

Motel has good size rooms that are clean and well maintained. Small re-frig available as well as cable TV. They have two dogs who sometimes roam the property who are both very freindly.

Please do not throw alot of weight in the negative posted comments about cob webs & paint etc. Interior & exterior look fine and yes there are a few cob webs but its the country !!

Room Tip: Web site pictures do justice to the facility

As exhibitors in the Americade, it is important that we can relax and rest at the end of the day. The Chelka Lodge has provided us with comfortable, clean and spacious accommodations for several years. The hosts, Dave and Judy are great folks that go out of their way to make sure your needs are taken care of...and the location could not be better. My husband started every day with a row out on the lake in the boats provided for guests and cooled off with a swim in the evening at the end of the busy day.
The king sized bed in the lakeside efficiency units is just the cure for a tired body and is extremely comfortable. I suffer with arthritis and I always rest well on their superior mattresses.
We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Lake George. You are just a short drive from all the action downtown during the motorcycle rally, but far enough up the lake to enjoy the peaceful nature that surrounds you.
If you do not wish to cook in the efficiency unit, there are many restaurants in Lake George and along the drive to the Chelka Lodge itself, including Delis and convenience stores.

Room Tip: Just specify your needs to Dave & Judy

Great location. Get up early for the sunrise, the view is terrific. If you enjoy bass fishing you're in the right place. Take one of Chelka's row boats or kyaks and fish the shoreline south of the lodge. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Dave, Judy, Hiedi and Sofie are wonderful hosts.

This was our fifth or sixth trip to Chelka Lodge. if you are looking for a clean, neat, quiet location for a family - this is the place. The grounds are nicely groomed with plenty of tall shade trees. A small beach makes it a great for young kids. A light continental breakfast is out daily including a homemade pastry or cake of some kind. Clean, simple rooms are large enough to spread out and relax.
We highly recommend Chelka, a great family retreat.

Lovely lakeside spot near Diamond Point. Grounds are meticulously maintained with a beautiful, wooded view overlooking the lake and mountains. Owners, Dave and Judy were wonderful hosts and the atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. Two sweet Labs added to the ambiance. The accommodations were clean and comfortable with a nice king sized bed. Fun, relaxing place to spend the weekend! We'll be back.

This was our 5th trip to Chelka Lodge in 6 years and we will continue to visit this beautiful area as often as time permits. The view from the rooms of Lake George and the Adirondacks is just wonderful. We find the peace and quiet very relaxing and the access to some great restaurants well worth the long drive from Maine. The hosts, Dave an Judy, were very helpful in directing us to local places to visit and make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

This was our fist trip to the Chelka Lodge and we were not disappointed. The grounds are beautiful and our room was spacious and very clean. Dave and Judy were wonderful hosts. As we were driving back to Rhode Island from our extended Memorial Day weekend, we began planning a return trip to the Chelka Lodge in June for Father's Day. Can't wait to get back there and enjoy some more fishing on Lake George and a restful stay at the Chelka Lodge.

Room Tip: Ttaking your own boat book a slip at the motel
