This was our second time staying at the lamplight and I'm happy to report it is just as good as it was 5 years ago. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotless. The Inn itself is very cozy and just sitting in the main living room is a pleasure. Back in 2004 we stayed in the Brook side cottage which was simply wonderful as it was almost like your own separate home about 500 feet from the main house. This time we spent a night in the main house and 3 nights in the Carriage house. I can safely say that both of us really enjoyed the Carriage house room which was spacious, clean and decorated beautifully. That is not to take away anything from the rooms in the main house. We stayed in the small room which was the only room available for that one night, but there are several large rooms there which are beautiful as well. It was so nice that after going further up north to Canada we decided to stop off there again before continuing home for one more night. You just can't talk about the Lamplight without mentioning Gene's breakfast. Fuggetaboutit, it's absolutely super stupendous, and you really can forget about eating lunch. It's not only delicious but also Huge. You can't finish it, and I can really eat. The grounds are immaculately kept and it's a pleasure to sit in the gardens surrounded by big old trees and flora. Linda is a sweetheart who really knows how to put together an inn and make it a special place. My wife and I are experienced world travelers and I can tell you that you will be hard pressed to find a nicer place in the Adirondacks, of which we have been to many over the years. It has the serendipity of being a stones throw from Lake Luzerne proper which is a wonderful picturesque lake that has a sandy beach and I will go so far as to say even better than just having a pool. Your only about 15 minutes from Lake George to boot. There is plenty to do in the general vicinity, a real Rodeo, horse back riding, white water rafting, fresh water fishing (bring your own rod, reel and tackle box) and good restaurants. There are many nice restaurants on Lake George with a view as well.There is also para sailing and steamboat tours on Lake George as well as hansom cab rides, miniature golf and even haunted house theme amusements if that's your thing. Really too much to mention here. However lets mention all the beautiful scenery everywhere, and Saratoga Racetrack about 30 minutes away from the Inn. If you are going to stay in the Adirondack mountains of New York State and want a romantic and restful stay, The Lamplight Inn is the place to be, period. I very highly recommend it without question.
