We were looking for a quick break from New York City. The Elms was the perfect place for this. The Web site doesn't do justice to the beauty of the place (nor do our photographs!) -- it is stunning. Most of the cottages are right on the waterfront, so you wake up to an uninterrupted view of the water, and they face west, so you get ringside seats for the sunsets in the evenings!
The cottages themselvs are well equipped and perfectly adequate, and the screened-in porches are a nice touch for when you want to be outside but away from the bugs (they never really bothered us). All cottages have their own grills, and most have their own firepits for those who want the full wilderness experience! The resort also allows you to use its kayaks, pedal boats, and rowboats (and lifejackets), another really nice touch, as they don't nickel and dime you for hire fees. They also have a nice beach for swimming and sunning.
There are enough shops and restaurants/bars within a minute's walk that you never run out of anything, or feel too isolated. But the resort is nicely tucked away from the gaudier parts of Lake George, although this and the other towns in the area are all within easy driving distance.
