5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2008

Family run with all eager to make sure you enjoy your stay. Close enough to town, yet far enough for those quiet nights around the camp fire. Trolley convenient since parking in town is difficult in season. Large property and cottages are very comfortable. Great for families with children.

Stayed August 2007

We just returned today from our stay at Twin Birches Cottages in Lake George. I chose this resort for our vacation this year after A LOT of research on the internet and I am not CONFIDENT that I made the RIGHT choice! Twin Birches is a wonderful family resort that is perfect for families with small children.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath "home" that was perfect for my husband and I, our 3 children ages 3, 2, and 7 months, and my parents. The home was clean and well taken care of, as are ALL of the cottages and grounds.

What we liked best: HUGE kiddie pool with depths of 1.5 - 3.5 feet; Mini-golf on premise is perfect for little kids to fool around and try golfing; Game room is large and fun for kids on rainy days; Beach is newly "remodeled" with beautiful grounds, gazebos, dock and nice size swimming area, playgrounds and tons of wide open space for kids to run and play, loop around cabins to ride bikes/scooters; free pontoon boat rides to Lake George during the week; Trolly stops right at the resort and can take you almost anywhere for $1 a person and free for kids under 5; resort provides linens and sheets and has towel exchanges everyday; Firepits for each cabin; charcoal grills available

What we didn't like: The lake is across the street and down a steep lane - most people drive down, but we walked most of the time, but it is a HIKE!

We visited many other cottages in the area while we were there and NOTHING compared to Twin Birches!!! We talked to MANY, MANY people that have been coming to and returning to Twin Birches year after year and love it. Many have tried other places as well and nothing compares. We're planning on returning again next year and then maybe again each year. It was truley a wonderful family vacation!

  • Liked — Clean and comfortable - above average "cottages"
  • Disliked — Lake access is across the road and down a hill

This is a great place to stay. It's a family run establishment and everyone is friendly and eager to help. The grounds are huge - I believe they have 22 acres, a large swimming pool, a kiddie pool, 2 hot tubs, tennis courts, 2 playgrounds, access to a small beach with picnic tables and docks. The cottages are backed by woods and most open up to a huge open grassy area lined with giant evergreens. The property is across the street from Lake George and you can see the lake from the front lawn. We rented a 3 bedroom cottage with 2 bathrooms and it was spacious and clean. The mattresses were on the soft side, but everything was comfortable. The biggest complaint I have is the living room sofa and loveseat upholstery was a bit dusty. I think housekeeping should include vacuming them as part of their cleaning routine. The Monday night S'Mores programs was a great touch for the kids.

  • Liked — Peaceful, quiet atmosphere - yet convenient to town.

We stayed at Twin Birches in late July - early August 2006.
We rented one of the cottages (one bedroom).

Cottage: Spacious bedroom with 2 queen size beds. Good A/C as it was NY hottest week ever. The kichenette was small and not much cutlery but clean. Otherwise a decent size for a one bedroom cabin.
The cabin was generally clean and kept. The bathroom smelled a little of urine.
Good price/Affordable

Amenities-
The best part by far. Nice children's pool and supervision area/deck. An adult pool (which we didn't use much with 3 young kids). A games room, tennis courts and a mini put course for 2 dollars US.
We really enjoyed the clean and nicely placed pool.
Plenty of BBQ pits and an individual charcoal BBQ per cottage.

Service at the front desk was very good. Courteous and knowledgable about local events.

People who go there seem to return for many years. I can see why.

I definitely recommend it if you have small children.
