Located on the quieter side of Lake George (on Rt 9L) Dunham's Bay gave us the feeling of staying in a decent hotel room mixed with the outdoor fun of camping! We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath "cabin", more like a hotel suite, that was spacious and clean. Although it was a bit pricey, it was worth it. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed to make lunch or dinner (except the food of course) and that helped us save a few bucks by not having to eat out all the time. Plus the grounds are so beautiful and quiet that enjoying a meal as a family outdoors was a pleasure! And at the night the staff lights a fire pit that was safe and cozy to sit by while the kids roasted marshmallows.
My wife and I were able to let our 2 daughters (10 & 6) play in either of the 2 shady green playgrounds that faced our cabin...while we relaxed! In addition, the indoor pool and hot tub were large and clean, with plenty of toys for the kids and lots of towels. You have to cross the street to get to the lake, but the road is rarely busy and it's very safe. The beach was small and there was a bit of a hornet problem the first day. There is a nice shaded lawn to hang out on if you don't want to be in the sand. And the kids loved swimming in the lake.
Lastly, the staff was terrific. Lynn escorted us to our cabin upon check-in and made sure we had everything we needed, including offering us discount passes to Great Escape! The rooms were cleaned daily and everything around the place was kept in great shape. It was obvious that they really care and take pride in what they do. It was our first trip to Lake George and as great as the area is, the biggest reason we'll be coming back is to stay at Dunham's Bay!
