“Great for you and your dog!!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

If you're looking for a dog friendly place to relax and enjoy the area, consider Hill View Cottages. Its about 4 miles north of Lake George Village, so you have access to everything there without having everyone on top of you.

They have a combination of motel rooms and separate cottages to choose from. Our 2 bedroom cottage had all the basics - queen bed, refrigerator / freezer, fireplace, air conditioning, electric stove, patio with grill and then some. Theres a spacious front lawn to walk your dog and even a trail behind the owners house that ends with a scenic view of the lake.

The owners are helpful, friendly and there if you need them for anything. George drives around every morning in his utility vehicle cleaning out your grill for you and picking up any apples that fall off the tree in front of your cottage. Theres a large play area for the kids and a pool that's probably bigger than most in the area - never a crowding problem!

If you're renting a cottage be sure to bring all your basic needs i.e. towels, etc. it's the equivalent of renting an updated cabin, just on a gorgeous piece of property.
Will definitely be back!

My family and I carefully chose this place based on recommendation from another resort that was fully booked and based on the reviews.
To begin with, I just want you to ignore that one bad review. Only one. This place is mainly run by two ppl: George and Robin. George is the owner and a hardworker. He'll make your stay as pleasant as possible. Robin will make sure your premises are clean and tidy at all times.
The best for couple as well as for families. George even traced a walking trail that is behind the cottages himself. Jacuzzi, golf, volleyball, fishing pond, your individual bbq grill is something that are not offered anywhere else. I and compared. george took my brother in law and me to a river- proveded a canoe and gave us a ride both ways.
You wont regret if you choose Hillview.

Room Tip: Get a room with a kitchenette.

This was my first vacation to Lake George and my first time at Hillview Cottages. The cottages were a great find and for a great price. Our room was beautiful, clean looking and smelling. The cutest setup ever. Individual patios with barbarques. There was a functional mini refrigerator and freezing cold air conditioning Had plenty of hot water bathroom very clean, no mold. Property kept beautiful and overlooks a piece of lake george. Beautiful sunset. The last thing I must comment on is the Owners both George and Maria the kindest and most accomodating couple, all to better your vacation. I went to lake george really not being 100% a water person, I wanted to paddle boat or row boat as I believed any lake would have I drove all over you can rent anything else but not either one of those. I go back to Hillview Cottages and was told by the housekeeper to ask the owner George. Well after driving around stopping everywhere, George got me a row boat in 10 minutes. Great people. To our surprise as we pulled up to the property we automatically saw a miniture golf course and a beautiful pool with a hot tub. At the office was Maria waiting to greet us. It was a wonderful stay so wonderful its 2 weeks later and I told them I would see them next year but I think Im going back within the 2 weeks. Best place to stay with the best price.

Room Tip: I would think if you want the most privacy, you want an end unitl

This was our third time at Hillview Cottages:) We have tried three other places previously and they were fine, but Hillview has it all! Good prices, better than most, beautiful grounds, a gigantic, clean pool, a fishing pond, BQ grills, bonfire pit, and you can bring your dog. The owners are extremely nice and they will help you in any way they can. George is always around ready to accommodate in his red motor cart and Marie is ready with advise for shopping, church, restaurants, etc. The motel rooms are neat and clean with a good amount of room. The cottages are roomy and cozy. It takes a great amount of time, money and effort to keep a place like this open to us for vacation and we are thankful. We bring our kids, dogs and boat and enjoy all that they offer. We look forward to coming back again real soon! Thank you,

We had reservations at another hotel that was not ideal to stay in compared to the online pictures but the chamber of comer. in LG sent us here. The facilities were extremely clean, and updated,smelled fresh, very pet friendly and the staff was so nice, we cant wait to return. This location was so close to LG and worth the few mile ride. The prices were reasonable and there was so many activities to do such as, volleyball, ping pong, basketball, kid play area, kids pool, another large pool, hot tub, mini golf, fishing, gym, game room, and access to the lake, and great lake views. Thank you for making our trip great we will be back!!!

Room Tip: pictures are not always what they seem , but this location is worth it.

Hillview Cottages is not where we will be staying when we return to Lake George next year. Not only did the cottage have a mildew smell, but the fridge was constantly leaking, there was no hot water, linoleum floors lifting all over, uncomfortable couch that felt like you were sitting on the groud, and the beds were terrible. Although the cottage appeared to be clean two of our guests were bit all over their bodies by what we believe were spiders (one of them actually found a spider crawling on them). Although the grounds were nice, and the pool was okay, the pictures advertised on their website DO NOT match the accommodations we came upon. When relaying our issues to the owners we were faced with rude, disrespectful comments and excuses. Considering we paid a substantial amount of money to stay in a "close to the lake" full cottage, we did not get our moneys worth. I would not recommend this place to any friends or family, or even my worst enemy. We have stayed in numerous locations around Lake George and this was by far the worse. The entire establishment needs a renovation to take it out of 1974.

We were at Hillview Cottages this summer and were extremely pleased. Our two granddaughters loved the facility as well as our dog Princess. Marie and George are very accommodating. They go out of their way to please you. The compound has a lot to offer-- 2 swimming pools, playground, minature golf, laundry, and so on. We found that other famillies who rented there were very friendly. Ou granddaughter actually invited other famillies to our bonfire and they all showed up. This is a wonderful place for a family reunion.
