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!

Hi. I recently spent four nights/five days for a little get away, at the Elms Cottages. I had been here twice before in the past couple of years (both times during Columbus Day weekend). For anyone who enjoys the outdoors & is looking for a quaint, clean, safe & peaceful get away in the Adirondacks, I highly recommend you stay... More

I just spent the last weekend of June at The Elms with a group of 20 grown ups and kids to celebrate a friend's wedding anniversary. Each family had a comfy cabin located close to the sandy lakefront beach. This is a charming, rustic retreat sitting on the bank of the Hudson River, and the property owner, Chandler, offers a...

My family and friends had a great time here! Loved the property! Very forest-like, shady and plush. Easy access to the water. My 2yo daughter loved swimming in the lake with the minnows! Staff was friendly and accommodating. Grills, fire pits, rowboats, jet skis, are all on site. Great place for family, friends, and pets! Cottages were cozy and provided... More

Horrible location, filthy cabins that I am pretty sure are not to code. Rocks holding up screen porches, holes in screens, rodent droppings under kitchen sink as soon as we entered (obviously not cleaned well!) , cigarette butts at entrance of door as we arrived! Also, 2 people drowned the week we were there so the heavy police presence turned... More

Cabin 4: We stayed June 12-15 in this lakefront cabin and enjoyed every moment! Peaceful, quiet, beautiful, plus attentive staff. Thank you, Chandler and crew!

The cabin was nice & very clean. We loved the beach with our 6 month old golden retriever. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The town was easy to walk to and Lake George was only a short drive. The only problem we had was our bed was very worn out. Cabin # 5 in need of a new... More

We stayed at The Elms from May 27th - May 30th with our dogs and enjoyed every minute of it. Our cabin is right on the water with a spectacular view of the mountain sunset. The premise is quiet yet conveniently located at a short walk away from a convenience shop, a gas station and a wine store. There are... More

Thank you Chandler! This is just what our very busy family schedule needed this Memorial Day, a break from reality..... No cell phones, no texting, just kayaking, fishing, and good old fashion family time. The perfect escape for my family. We really appreciated all you and the staff did for us.
