My husband was searching for a place near Lake George and decided to try this one.A little difficult to find but when we did Wow! Tucked away we saw a timber lodge on a lake, huge great room complete with moose head over the fireplace, comfy leather couches, beautiful Henckley table and chairs set for breakfast , adjoining porch, our room was on the first level, comfy king bed, gas fireplace, our own deck overlooking the yard with chairs, fire pit, dock.. Our bathroom was spacious with a Jacuzzi tub and walk in stone shower with 3 shower heads!
No TV in our room but on the lower level is a room with exercise equipment, pool table,bar, and a home theatre room with huge leather seats facing a big screen TV, even a popcorn machine!
Morning breakfast was more than ample with orange juice, fresh fruit,2 kinds of cold cereal on the table, then Sharon, the owner, (such a nice lady) gave us quite a variety to choose from:one day omlettes with asparagus,next day French toast or eggs anyway you wanted, choice of bacon or sausage, fresh pastry, a hearty start.I can imagine this place in the winter, Great all year! Don't miss the 2 friendly labs(you can't). Sharon goes out of her way to make sure all your needs are met, tells you about all the really good restaurants in the area! Such a good time, glad we found it, will be back!
