I was there for a five day workshop. My husband came along and he got to play all day. We stayed in the inn and the accommodations were good. More like a hostel than a hotel, twin beds in a small room but we did have an attached bathroom. Ate in a communal dining room . The food was mediocre to poor. They always had a salad bar and vegetarian option which worked for me but my husband really did not like the food. Our workshop space was not air conditioned and it was very hot. My husband enjoyed the waterfront activities, sailing, kayaking and canoeing and archery. In the evening there were concerts by classical and folk musicians. It is like summer camp for families. Lots to do in a beautiful setting. Wifi and cell phone service were poor.

This place was great for a weekend getaway. I stayed at the William Boyd center. The room was exceptionally clean. The staff was friendly. There are plenty of activities. It’s great for families. My visit included meals. The food was okay. Cafeteria type food. It’s about 30 min drive into lake George Town.

My partner and I decided to come to Hague, NY for our vacation week to see Lake George. The Silver Bay YMCA is perfect for recreational activities like boating, kayaking, archery, swimming, paddle-boarding, gym and yoga actives, arts and crafts, and tennis (among other things too). The price is very affordable for what we were looking for. A 1 day two-person pass was $52 for all access to everything on the campus. The marina down the road charges $60 for a full day rental of a kayak when you can do that and more for the 1 day price at this YMCA. I would highly recommend staying here if you are into the recreational out doors and want to be able to do and see everything in one place.

The camp was nice enough (looking past the construction). Staff were all very friendly (only exception being a older woman staffer at the waterfront), food was fine, and there was plenty to do. However, we stayed in the Hepbron building, and ...eesh... We actually saw chipmunks running in the second floor hallway and scooting under room doors. We also saw them in the common area downstairs. The other buildings looked fine, but if you go here, I'd suggest you avoid Hepbron. Also, we happened to catch a hot (90's) and humid week, so with no AC (except in the cafeteria) there was no escaping the heat unless you were swimming. Plus, the camp is on a hill, so simply walking to your room made you sweaty, and when you get there, no relief. The room was almost unbearable at night even with fans cranking on high. All that said, nice staff, fun things to do, and decent food. Probably won't return, but if we do, will avoid the Hepbron building and the month of July...

I go visit each year for a Bar Association retreat. This year one of us left a $100 bill in the room. I called to ask if it had been found, never expecting that it had or that anyone would admit it. It had been found, and they mailed it back to me! Besides this, the location is so pretty and soothing, the grounds and buildings so pretty that I never want to leave. I prefer the main Inn to the other buildings, but they are all nice.
