We just finished our first visit to Canoe Island Lodge with our two toddlers and it was an amazing family vacation. Only wish we would have planned to stay longer. Many of the families staying at the resort return year after year and we can understand why. The owners are involved in every single detail to make sure there is... More

Posted a review of CIL the first time we came, and right now in our 4th year here, and this place STILL ROCKS! Kids can't wait to come back each year and I look forward to the relaxing week. Same families return this time too so always like a little reunion... Such a friendly inviting atmosphere. Staff is amazing, food... More

Was there for a 3 day business meeting. Beautiful place on Lake George. Grounds manicured and room large and clean. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful views, sand beach and available sailboat & pontoon boat rides. Great place for a family vacation.

My family has been coming here for well other 25 years - before I was born! CIL has never disappointed and the surrounding areas provide just enough entertainment to provide a relaxing, but never boring, summer vacation. Spend the days on the shore, hiking the trails, or head to Diamond Point/Bolton Landing for a day of shopping and arcade games.... More

Friendly, warm and inviting. You'll feel it as soon as you arrive. We actually had the run-of-the-house as we were attending a meeting prior to the summer season. Staff was attentive and helpful. I believe meals were included and they were adequate. Rooms were clean and spacious. I actually overlooked the lake from a second level 1 bedroom. Unfortunately, it... More

My family began their Canoe Island Lodge tradition over 35 years ago. They started coming because it was all-inclusive. My mother couldn't think of a better place to bring five kids. No having to figure out where to go for food for every meal. The bell rings, and we all process up to the lodge. No having to figure out... More

This was our second summer staying at Canoe Island Lodge (CIL). We used to stay at another property nearby, but after trying CIL, we are hooked. First year at CIL we stayed in a small cabin, this year we stayed in the Carriage House, sharing it with friends and it was really great. We were 4 adults and 3 kids... More

We stayed in a lovely little cabin with a fireplace (of course it wasn't needed in July) near the main lodge. We had breakfast and dinner there. There was a beautiful buffet the first night where I gorged on raw oysters and shrimp! There were many choices for the food at all meals and there were delicious. The vacation included... More

Our children and grandchildren loved it. There was something to do for everyone and all ages, even teens! They all rated it a better vacation than the beach at jersey shore! Food was great. Our waiter fantastic. All of the help were very polite and personable. Nothing was to much. We loved them all. Kids could swim, tub, water ski,... More

My wife's family has spent an August week at Canoe Island Lodge every year since 1981. That's 34 years. I married into this vacation 21 years ago. My children and my wife's sisters' children have grown up looking forward to and enjoying this vacation each year. And now five grandchildren have joined in the fun. Why do we go back... More
