We had a group of 22 staying at the Elms to celebrate my Mom's 80th Birthday. It was the perfect place for such a gathering, as everyone had their own space when needed, as we rented multiple cabins, but there was also large enough spaces for communal gatherings. The location is beautiful as it is right on Lake Luzerne and... More

The Elms is a great place to stay, very pretty along the river in the village of Lake Luzerne. You feel welcome as soon as you pull into the driveway. Very special place with very nice cabins and other lodging. Chandler will see that you have a great stay!

I traveled with my partner and two other couples to The Elms and it was one of the best times we all had. The owner and staff were great and were very accommodating to our needs to have fun. The cabins were perfect for our extended weekend stay. I highly recommend this place and will be back next year!!

The Elms Waterfront Cottages is a wonderful place for families, young couples, or even older couples. What better setting than your own cottage with a screened -in porch,and views of the Tiasoranda Bay. Pets are welcome,and the sounds of children playing are wonderful. Now, I will give you ideas for things to do in the area. Watersports ,canoes, kayaks, and... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for exactly THIS ... a quaint little cabin ON the water. Yes, I wanted to SEE the water at all times and not be stuck a mile back from the shoreline, relegated to the woods. The Elms truly had everything we were looking for. Great size cabin (#9) with screened in porch, our own... More

My family enjoyed an extended stay in side-by-side waterfront cottages. Service was excellent, the views were pleasing, and we appreciated the complimentary basketball, ping pong, and shuffle board. Thank you to one and all at The Elms!
