GREAT spot!!! I was nervous from some the reviews but I am Serious…. IGNORE them!! The Elms is fantastic. Chandler is the owner and he genuinely wants you to have a great time! He gives great information about the property and the area. So much for kids to do. My guys enjoyed kayaks, pedal boats, kayaks, basketball and volleyball and s’mores all in one afternoon. Cabin was clean and had EVERYTHING we needed. Yes, it is on a busy road but once you are in your cabin, you forget all about the road. However it is super convenient to walk out and get S’mores supplies, breakfast, coffee and candy! This spot is a true hidden gem, can’t wait to come back!!!

We rented a cottage with a loft. This particular one has enough room for 6 people , however, living room/kitchen area is a little small. Lakeview from the loft , deck, living room more than make up for the smaller spaced living room Beds are comfy enough and we slept well If you like kayaks, boats, canoes, swimming, camp fires, quite peaceful landscapes - this is a place to be

For all of the readers of Trip Advisor. com- take note! The Elms Waterfront Cottages,( Located in the town of Luzerne NY is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the great outdoors! Especially this year- with all of the Cova 19 issues, and concerns with our families wellness- there has been much added stress on our mental health , and we as a society are looking for a place of retreat and comfort.. The Elms is very open to nature- Close to the water- and very private in it’s own special way., Cottages are clean, and staff are wonderful!! Our family has enjoyed 15 summers at the Elms’s and we hope to have many more.. So, without further adue! Pack your bags, and check out the website to see all that is offered, there is a list of activities that should give you some options!! In closing.. Give yourself an opportunity to explore a new setting- and avoid all the crowds of the city.. In the center of the town there is a wooden plaque that quotes the wisdom of a famous poet- go there and see if you can find it! Very appropriate for this moment of reflection!! Enjoy each day, as if it were your last.. ( with caution). And (mindfulness)..

Although we enjoyed our stay, several inconveniences could be easily and inexpensively rectified. There were no towel racks...anywhere, no place to put you toothbrush or toothpaste and we had to return dirty towels and get our own fresh ones, no good place to dry hair or put on a little makeup and we couldn’t have the ceiling fan on unless the light was on as well. Weird! We enjoyed the lake, bringing our dogs and meeting other vacationers but for the price we paid...it’s not likely we’ll return.

We enjoyed a 3 night stay in 2016 so much that we are planning to come back this summer. We meet up with family members to camp each summer and everyone voted to come back here. Chandler really helped us figure out the best accommodations for all the members of our family and we could even bring our dog! The atmosphere was very relaxed. We enjoyed kayaking and paddle boating on the water, dug in the sand and swam at the beach and had a campfire very night right in front of our cabin. This camp has been here for decades, but you can see that they are always updating and making it nicer. Very quaint, but clean. Can't wait to come back and enjoy marshmallows by the sunset.

I loved this place. Visited this place with wife and another couple in Oct2018. Unlike other places, cottages are right on the riverside. All the water toys and equipments available right there. Shortcut gives super easy access to wine shop, farm store. Cottages are in best condition and loaded with everything you will need. Camp fire, bbq are right there outside cottages. People at this property are very helpful and go high extend to make you feel comfortable. Most importantly, best part about this property is the scenic beauty of this place and water activities one can do here, which is unparallel. This was an unforgettable trip. Definately visiting again.

We stayed at the two bedroom cottage. Although small, it was cozy and comfortable. The heating was good and all amenities provided were convenient too. The 24 convenience store accessible by a short cut and the Stewart shops across were a great boon. To sum it all- a great place for a wonderful short holiday.

Perfect location for an Adirondacks getaway. We stayed in a two-bedroom cottage with our furry friends. Chandler, the owner, is extremely friendly and stayed later to accommodate a late check-in. The views from the cottages of the Lake are amazing. The cottages are equipped with cooking equipment, sheets, and paper products. They are also in pristine condition. I loved that there is a grill, fire pit, and chairs to enjoy the view. There is also a screened in porch with tables and chairs to enjoy the view from inside. It is a dog friendly location and there are several places to obtain food and wine in close proximity. If you are an early morning swimmer please note that there is a dam that may cause the Lake to be shallow until around 11 am. You have access to a private swimming area and several types of boats to access the water. It is a wonderful experience and close to Lake George but very quiet.

Our stay at "The Elms" to celebrate our daughters birthday over the Labor Day weekend was most enjoyable. My wife, daughter, our dog and I had a 2 bedroom cabin that was quaint but comfortable, clean and contained all the amenities we needed for our stay. The lake and swimming area were steps away from the cabin. We had free access to kayaks, row boats and paddle boards. Chandler is the proprietor and he makes it a point to meet and greet each guest which added a pleasant personal touch to our stay. The staff was always available for any needs we may have had and for recommendations as to where to eat or sightsee. We would recommend the Elms and would definitely return.
