This property is absolutely beautiful and situated on a large stretch of lake front. It has its own beach and boat house with plenty of chairs where you can relax and enjoy the view after a swim in Lake George. The only downside of the rooms are that they are older and not well insulated. Consequently if there is noise outside, that noise is heard in the rooms. The staff was extremely friendly, especially the morning crew who fixed breakfast. We would return if we have the opportunity because it is a beautiful spot.
My husband and I recently stayed at Still Bay Resort in September 2018. We chose two nights during the week, a Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Totally off season for the Lake George area and we had Still Bay all to ourselves. We loved having the place all to ourselves on Tuesday evening and on Wednesday evening there was just one other couple. What a wonderful spot on Lake George to unplug and unwind! Truly a rustic, authentic Adirondack experience. We stayed in room 1 which overlooks the Lake, it was in knotty pine and very cabin like- we loved it! There was a fridge in our room and also a coffee maker, so we were all set! The beach is very nice and we would definitely stay here again!
My partner and I went to the Still Bay Resort recently based mostly on reviews and the fact that it was on the lake (at a good price). It was after Labor Day but still warm. I agree with others that the building itself has seen better days but the rooms are clean. There is a mini fridge and a coffee maker, toiletries, and a hair dryer. There's no iron in the room. I don't know if you can get one upon request because there was no one around when I needed one (there didn't seem to be any staff members from evening until 9am, just a number to call for emergencies). I found the upkeep of the rest of the hotel lacking. Again, I want to emphasize it was the end of the season but there were no games that were complete on the lawn - busted bean bags for cornhole, only one set of (same-colored) balls for ladder ball, no pallino for bocce, etc. That was sad for us, as we love games. There also was no breakfast; breakfast was part of my calculation when booking the hotel -- apparently there's been a change of ownership and the new owners only do breakfast until Labor Day. Since there was no staff around in the morning, we were wandering around the grounds looking for it until other guests told us what was happening (there was no information of any kind in the guest rooms). The whole time my partner and I were looking longingly at the place next door -- O'Connor's cottages -- where the grounds looked much more maintained. I'm not sure whether it's in the same price range or not, though. I probably wouldn't go back to Still Bay.…
Rooms were very neat and clean. Staff very friendly and nice. Room had everything we needed because I pack all travel toiletries so it was nice to have back up. My only complaint is the poor WiFi. It forces you to unplug which I do not mind AT ALL. However, it was impossible to text, call, and FaceTime our kids. It was also impossible to map out places to eat before venturing out not knowing how far or how long it would take. Other than that, our stay was just what we needed.
Just returned from a weekend at Still Bay Resort. Although the resort itself is rustic and not at all fancy, the rooms and property are clean and well maintained. The setting on the lake is really beautiful and you can use one of their kayaks to go out on the water or you can bring your own if you prefer. Our large group used the grills to have a bbq one night and the adults were able to relax while the kids enjoyed the beach area.
