“Great rooms and incredible staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The owner meets you at the front desk and, if he doesn't have enough rooms or the room you want... he will call around to other local hotels/cottages and find you one! A taste of old fashioned service. We stayed but the family we were with had 7 so they got a room nearby that was set up by the owner. Simply incredible! We loved the room, big with nice beds and kitchenette. VERY family friendly with a terrific little pool and the kids played with no complaints :) Our friends were equally delighted at their hotel and we bounced back and forth between the two with no issues about cars or noise. The owners of both places are very friendly and incredibly helpful. Everything was clean and we had a fantastic stay. Thank goodness for places like this still in business, it really makes a vacation so much nicer.

Room Tip: The suites or "6 guest" rooms are the only ones we stayed in and they were beautiful. You...

What a tremendous find. We were looking for an overnight accomodation in Lake George, but all the prices were over our budget. I happened to pass by Lee's and saw a sign that said rooms from $65. And sure enough, I got two rooms for $65 each, which is a steal in the Lake George area. The rooms were neat and spotlessly clean. Both the cable TV and WiFi had good reception. Bed linens and towels were new. And there was even coffee in the morning under an awning! There is a pool, plenty of gas BBQ's and picnic tables. Lee's is about two miles south of the village on the west side of Route 9. Would unconditionally recommend, and we look forward to going back.

Over the years I have stayed at Lee's numerous times, this is a family run operation (Chris, Karen and their 2 daughters) and you are treated like family, from the morning coffee and served under the canope, or sitting on the porch in the evening chatting with Chris and the other guests. Yes, it is a little older and off the main road but it is clean, comfortable and reasonable. A real Gem.

On the recommendation of a friend we booked a room at Lee's for Labor Day weekend. When we arrived we were greeted by Chris, the owner and given a rundown of the room and amenities. As stated on the website it is off the road, has a heated pool picnic tables and barbecue grills. The back of the property is near the expressway, but there is a stand of pines so the noise is not bad. Once you are in the cabin you can hardly hear the traffic. We didn't use the pool but it looked very clean. The cabins are old but very well cared for and very clean. The bathroom is small but also very clean. Our cabin had a small porch with a table and chairs which was a pleasant place to relax and rest.
We enjoyed the weekend very much and will certainly go back there again. The cottage reminded me of the roadside tourist courts I stayed in when I went on trips with my Parents. If you are looking for a clean inexpensive vacation this is the place to pick. I have stayed at several places in Lake George and Lee's is by far the best value. It's not the Ritz, but it is clean and comfortable.

  • Liked — The clenliness of the room and facility
  • Disliked — If I had to say it would be the gravel drive although not really a problem
