Place to stay w/ children

I'm looking for a great clean kid friendly place to stay in Lake George. Something with 2 bedrooms and a kitchen.

Thanks

Varying on how much you'd like to spend I can give you a few to look at. The Mohican is lovely, it's just a couple miles south of the lake itself, but on the same main route 9, and just a short walk from a mile of shopping. They have indoor and outdoor pools, plenty to do, and full kitchens. Very clean and friendly. They have a website at their name, so you can look. Also I would highly recommend the new Great Escape Lodge. It's a part of the Six Flags Great Escape, just across the street from the park itself, easy access to the park by walking out the front door and over the pedestrian bridge. The prices are a bit steap, but you get an indoor water park with hours of fun, including indoor water slides, lazy river, surf pool etc. They even have a family water slide where up to 4 people can fit on the tube at once! They have kitchenettes in the rooms, and a basic room sleeps 6. You pay one fee for the room and the fun, no additional charges per person. I went with my daughter and her 4th grade class, even though we live up the street, and we had more than 6 hours of fun. The kids can't stop talking about it! I'm tempted to book a room myself so we can go back and play, as the waterpark is not open to outsiders, only to hotel guests. We were lucky to get in that day, as one of the classmates has a mom who is a manager and they thought it was a good way to get advertising. This hotel/park is a good 10 minutes from the lake itself, but on the same main route 9, just about everything u need is on route 9 by the way. Canada street is route 9, just so you know for your driving info. If you want closer to the lake itself, I would check out Howard Johnson's Tiki Resort. It's honestly like walking into Hawaii, without the rain. They have a polynesian show thats fabulous, the whole fire sword dancing and great tropical looking food and atmosphere. They also have an Elvis impersonator show, and comedy shows. Most of the rooms have kitchenettes, and the prices are reasonable for Lake George. You are on the main route again, and just behind you is a large park that you can walk and play in, and its also educational sites where the kids can learn about the battles fought at Lake George. Across the street from that park is the lake itself, honestly you can walk to everything in the heart of Lake George from there. Save the $1.00/hr parking fee if you walk too. Hope these help you! You can also check out lakegeorge.com, and all of these hotels have websites at their names so you can see pics and reserve online. Under overview pages, I wrote about things to see and do, and places to eat. Hope that helps make your trip easier, enjoy!

My husband and I and our two kids stayed at the Adirondack Park Motel last year and will be going there again this year.

It is about 1/2 hour up the road from the village which for us is a good thing. While I like Lake George Village in small doses, we prefer to stay in the quieter Bolton landing area.

If you stay at the Adirondack and get the large cabin, you'll get a 2 rooms, an efficiency kitchen and living room. No maid service but we didn't miss it that much. They do send fresh towels in.

They also have a pool which the kids love and if your kids are into fishing, they can fish right off the dock which is a short walk from the cabin/motel.

The Adirondack Park motel isn't a large, fancy place but it is very clean, very well managed and is a great spot on the lake.

I highly recommend it.
