This is one of our favorite places to stay. We love the Erlowest. We spent a couple nights the beginning of July to celebrate my birthday. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady who only wanted to make sure we were taken care of. We had dinner out on the patio, which overlooks Lake George, and it was... More

My husband and I did a week long trip through NY State and Lake George was our last stop. Pulling into this majestic estate was absolutely breathtaking. Even the rainy day could not disguise it's beauty. The rooms are quaint and cozy and ours had a giant hot tub in the living room area. The front desk staff were very... More

The castle, as everyone there called it, was gorgeous. The view of the lake was perfect from everywhere you were on their grounds. Our room, the Erlowest suite, was better then the pictures could have ever suggested. Heart shaped Jacuzzi tub (which was a bit dangerous to get in and out of as others have said ...but just be careful),... More

My husband David & I loved it. The building looks like a castle. We loved the room and the activities that are around THE INN. Also the FIREPIT too. The food was rich and very fattening, but that is ok too. The staff was FANTASTIC!! The food for the breakfast was yummy too. Yes, I would recommend this INN to... More

Very friendly staff and wonderful views. Skip the restaurant. Montcalm room is very good as you have your own private terrace and a spacious room and common living area which was basically private. Centrally located just up the road from downtown Lake George, NY which is a very nice town with many amenities. Recommended.

Listen Folks, the pictures do NOT do this place justice. It's an old stone mansion; and classy in so many ways. The rooms are huge, the beds are amazing (the bamboo sheets are like sleeping on a cloud). There is a cozy bar in the previous library. You can sip your cocktail there or walk through the French doors &... More
