This was my first time back to Lake George in nearly 40 years. We selected Chelka for its location, TA reviews, and their website pictures. Also because there are so few B&B's to choose from in the area. The grounds and lake views of the quiet bay (very few boats) were great.
We stayed in a "motel" room. The room was clean and large and had a fantastic lake view. it was the little things that we have experienced during our extensive travels that brought the rating down from good to only average. The room, especially the bathroom, was like being in a time warp from the 60's. It would have been nice to have had a duvet or at least an extra blanket in the room. The blanket on the bed was fairly thin. In room coffee and higher level toiletries would have been a nice touch too.
Again, this is a very nice property with a killer view and location. With a few added touches could be a great lodging.
