We were guest at on of the most beautiful weddings I've ever attended. We ended up getting the townhouse closest to the castle, which was perfect for our group of 8! Beautiful property, great views, excellent docks, and a wonderful experience all the way around!

We booked one of the townhouses for my sister's wedding. We were stunned at the beauty, cleanliness, and comfort of the townhouse. We are a family of five (three children 9, 6, and 4). My sons and their cousins loved exploring the grounds - which include two modest playgrounds. We had more than enough space and could make our own...

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...

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. The master bedrooms have king size beds and a private bathroom. Many have private decks facing the lake. The guest bed rooms offer either queen size or two-twin beds depending on the unit. A bedroom entrance to the hallway bath provides privacy to the guest bedroom. Our villas are one story units that bring back memories of visiting the lake as a child.
