This was our first time visiting the lake and was a last minute plan. We found this resort by chance and were so pleasantly surprised. We were not aware it was the car show weekend. Not a fan, however it was so much to see. We got in late Friday night and stayed in villa 12. It overlooked the pool... More

Our family of four stayed here for a week in July in one of the waterfront condos. Couldn't have a better view of the gorgeous lake! Location can't be beat.

This place can easily be overlooked driving along the shore at Lake George. It is down from the road, at the water's edge. The main building is impressive (and a great wedding or event value in addition to deluxe suites), but it is the Villas that stole my heart. The knotty pine walls are a nice retro look. Each sleeps... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Sun Castle Resort.

My family has been vacationing in the villas almost every summer for a while now. Every time we go we enjoy it very much! But the villas are SO outdated.

Our townhouses and villas offer a variety of services with wonderful views of the lake and the Adirondack mountains. Our townhouses are two story buildings with full kitchen, family room, 2-bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The kitchens include full size refrigerator, stove and oven with a dishwasher along with a eat at kitchen bar. A dining table separates the kitchen from the family room space where many units include a gas fireplace. Family rooms enjoy large screen televisions and a deck facing Lake George.
