“Outstanding place to kick back and relax!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2008

We spent 4 days a few years ago at another Diamond Point resort. It was average at best. We wound up not returning for no particular reason.

This year we wound up at Diamond Cove. We reserved the same cottage for the same week next year already-- it is that good.

I am far from a people person. My ideal vacation would be an island with no one but my family and some friends. John & Kristina (the owners) and I hit it off from our introduction. In fact, John & I even managed to go fishing a couple of mornings before the office opened. It was as though we knew each other for years and years. I was pretty amazed and impressed.

They go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable. New to the area? They'll let you know where things are happening and the best way to get to them. We were able to watch the July 4th fireworks from my boat which was just amazing.

If you have a boat, this is THE place to visit. They have, bar none, the best docks I've ever seen. Also, the docking area is debris free, and all sand. There is no possible way you can damage your boat. Forget the pics of their doc on their web site because it's inaccurate. They replaced their docks in 2008 and are brand spanking new.

The beach is also kid conscious. There's a little play house that one of our girls liked playing in. Plenty of Adirondack chairs & lounge chairs... no rushing to grab them or reserve them like it was at another place we went to.

Let's see. What else. The cabins are well air conditioned, cozy and very clean. The stand alone cottages are set so each one sees the water when you look thru the living room picture window. That's a pretty slick land layout.

There is a private beach. They rake it daily so it stays clean of any debris that floated ashore. The sand is mostly rock free. There are no guests allowed, so it never became over crowded.

It's most definitely family oriented. There is a pretty decent playground area for the little ones. Even our 1 1/2 year old twin girls had their own slide & infant swing (which was hard to pry them away from). Quiet hour starts around 11pm, and all of the guests respected that which was a pleasant surprise.

I don't know what else to say about this place... We came up to get away from it all, and wound up leaving knowing we were coming back to see our new friends next year. Besides, John and I are tied 1:1 for fishing days (someone has to win!)

Overall, the place was clean, the guests friendly, the staff very friendly and the owners stuck to it when they told me "we will make you comfortable."

We ARE returning next year. This place found a very very special place in all of our hearts. Make your reservations EARLY because most of us return. Our neighbors have been there for 35 years. Their kids were our other neighbors. Their grand kids were yet our other neighbors, believe it or not.

  • Liked — Too much for 1 line. My review covers most of the highlights.
  • Disliked — Absolutely no guests allowed. Turned out not to be bad becuase there was no overcrowding looking back.

Rooms were very clean and exactly as advertised. The facility as a whole was great for young kids. Our group had eight adults and six young children (ages 5 months - 4 years) spread over four cottages and there was plenty for the kids to do with a sandy beach, shallow water, safe playground equipment, and central gathering areas. Our group will be back next year!

After a long and cold winter my wife and I needed to leave Boston for something different and exciting.....so we considered Lake George as an option. Many of friends had recommended this location in the past but we had no idea what we were in for. As we searched for places to stay we could not have picked a better place to stay then the Diamond Cove Cotteges in Diamond Point......I MEAN WHAT AN EXPERIENCE to say the least......John and Christina ,who were the owners, made us feel as were were visiting family for whom we had met for the first time......it was unbelievable the amount of hospitality they cater to their guests. The cotteges were extremely clean, cozy and fully furnished............the views from the lake were spectacular. We felt very fortunate to have met them being our first time at Lake George............this was certainly a Memorial Day weekend we will never forget and we could not have enjoyed our stay there with out their care and hospitality...................John and Christina we will see you again next year and we look forward to sharing our stories as we did that afternoon................best of luck at Diamond Cove Cottages......................a piece of heaven at Lake George ! : )

We have vacationed at Diamond Cove Cottages for two summers in a row, 2006 & 2007. Although we won't be planning a trip there this summer due to a new baby on the way in mid-March (you do the math- we vacationed at Lake George last summer at the end of June!), I highly recommend Diamond Cove Cottages. It is such a beautiful, relaxing place, and the owners are more than accomodating. There is so much to do in the surrounding area (you are right in between Lake George Village and the cute little town of Bolton's Landing), or you can just stay at the beach and take it easy. The cabins are quaint and clean, and the view from the beach is gorgeous. Hopefully we will be able to get a reservation next year when we decide to come back!
