Our family goes to The Elms on a yearly basis. It's a peaceful waterfront establishment that is close by to many attractions in the Adirondack/ Lake George area. If you wish to stay and play, that is an option too. There are skidoos and a pontoon boat available for rent as well as kayaks. Life jackets are provided. The establishment... More

My family of 4 with two young children (6 & 8) stopped by this place on our way to an old favorite in the Adirondacks. What a mistake. When we got to our cabin we were shocked at how small and dirty it seemed right off the bat. Water was all over the floor from a defective refrigerator, and my... More

Have stayed here multiple times and it is always a great escape from the hustle and bustle of life. The management keep it in excellent condition with lots of different activities for people of all ages to enjoy safely. Has the camping feel with a touch of luxury to the experience.

Sitting out at night with a cozy fire and bbq, star gazing! what summer is supposed to be! We have seen improvements from 2014... More

I have a 3 and a 5 year old and they had a great time! We enjoyed the private beach, paddle boats and row boats! The scenery is incredible. The lodge was pristine and the workers were very sweet. Our family is certainly looking forward to coming back year after year!

We visited as a family from NYC, looking to stay somewhere Pet Friendly in / around Lake George. This was it. Our Chocolate Lab learned to doggy paddle, right outside our cabin walking distance to the beach. Needless to say we are in LOVE with the Elms. It was quiet, and although right across the street from Stuarts, it felt... More

My wife, brother-in-law, and his fiance all stayed as a getaway in August. We absolutely loved our time there and have brought it up every time we've talked since staying.
