My wife and I wanted to attend the annual classic car show in Lake George at the last minute for usually all the hotels and motels in the area are booked way in advance. My wife found this place, it's located about 20 minutes or so from Lake George. We are so happy we came across this beautiful place! It's... More

We reserved the Great Room with its Adirondack furniture and décor. Our room had its own little porch overlooking the gardens. Pool was great and clean! Canoes,kayaks and Hiking were included in the fun. Food was good (little overpriced) but service was excellent both in restaurant, room and lobby. Definitely recommend for a great couple's get away weekend. Only one... More

Very nice Inn. Great accomodations - comfy bed, room darkening shades and the AC cranked. From Room #7 and #9 you get a partial lake view. Access to the lake is less than 1/4 mile away and very nice. We dined at the pub and have very average food at best. Customer service was excellent! Nicole, one of their servers/bartenders... More

We had went kayaking and had a nice picnic by the pool on the morning of our wedding! Our wedding was just what we wanted, relaxing, romantic and no stress. We enjoyed amazing wine and food and...

Beautiful inn. Extremely accommodating hosts. Excellent food. Great location for enjoying Adirondack activities (e.g. hiking, caving, shopping, eating). Very comfortable and nicely appointed rooms. We spent 5 nights there and wish we had stayed longer.....

When we first arrived the person at the front desk was not welcoming at all. She told us that our room was not ready and we asked if we could sit by the lake and read. She told us yes but we had no idea where it was and we ended up asking another guest who assisted us. Also the... More

We went for one night and wished we had more time! The food and service is excellent, and there are lots of things to do--swimming, hiking, biking,kayaking. Not far from Lake George if you want more action!

Had an overnight at this Inn last week. Owner and staff could not do more. Room was efficient and decor appropriate and updated. Bathroom was nicely styled. The package included breakfast and dinner. Terrific!! We kayaked, used the pool and enjoyed the lake all on their property. The Inn is not directly on the lake but easy access to it.... More

We stayed in one of the Adirondack rooms and we had a peaceful, elegant evening. The owners, John and Tammy selected exquisite wine for our dinner which was complemented by great conversation. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We strolled around the grounds and sat in Adirondack chairs listening to birds enjoying natural waterfalls. An absolutely perfect place for... More

Our visit was a sunday night. We pretty much had the place to ourselves. Melissa greeted us and was wonderful for our stay. We hiked, canoed, swam in the pool. Everything was just great. Would love to go back.
