The lodge is away from the main town (but not too far), making it a quiet getaway directly on the lake. We've gone with a big group twice now and had an amazing experience both times. Dave and Judy were both extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. We look forward to returning!

Chelka Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. They have all the necessary amenities anyone could need. The balcony view is beautiful and the owners are very nice!

They have both motel rooms and a cottage. This year we shared the cottage with another couple. Two bed rooms, living room, kitchen and a deck with a view of the lake and a grill.

Thank you so much for your review. We're glad you enjoyed staying in the apartment, which does offer a different lodging experience. This is a housekeeping unit, which means there is no daily maid service, just a daily towel exchange. The deck (new this year!) does have a beautiful view of the lake.

Beautiful location! Owners are very kind and accommodating. It's a little out of the main area, but just far enough to get away from the traffic. Only negative is that the rooms don't have their own coffeemakers. However, the main building has coffee starting at 7:30 am. Just not convenient for early risers.

Chelka Lodge is clean and comfortable. And if you're lucky to reserve one of their lake front efficiencies the view of Lake George is breathtaking. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the grounds are very well maintained. Definitely recommended.
