“Awesome Family Vacation!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Our family has been staying there frequently for almost 10 years. We have introduced many family members and friends to Thunderbird, and they love it as well. We just left yesterday, and already are planning to stay at the newly renovated Lakehouse Villa next year. We took a tour, and were extremely impressed with the spaciousness, the cleanliness, and the workmanship. The overall layout is perfect for multiple families, and the view is spectacular. We have already the house filled up for next year. In the past we stayed in the hotel, and the townhouses. If anything was missing from the kitchen, all we had to do was ask, and it was replaced promptly. The townhouses were also renovated, and the bedding could rival a luxurious hotel. I would highly recommend this resort. Thank you Thunderbird for once again providing a wonderful family vacation!!!

I have been coming to the Thunderbird Resort with my family since I was 2 years old; 32 years later and I could not imagine staying anywhere else!! Today, I continue this tradition with my husband and he has fallen in love with this resort as well Lake George.

The Rooms are inviting, clean and comfortable, the grounds are amazing and the sandy beach is as perfect as the views of the lake and the mountains are picturesque.

The Owners and their staff are the friendliest and most accommodating in the industry. They have always treated me like family and that’s why this Resort feels like home.

The Owners’ recent updates to their main villa turned out beautiful and I am excited to see what changes the next year will bring to the resort. I was at the resort while the Villa was being completed and even as there were a few hiccups with contractors leading to some time delays (as per usual when it comes to contractors) the community actually came together and stepped up to help put the finishing touches to the renovation so the Owners could meet their deadline and the guests would have the villa for when they arrived for the start of their vacation. I was truly touched to see such a display of kindness. To me, that was further testament to the character and validity of the Owners of the Thunderbird, because in this day and age it is rare to see a community come together to help a fellow neighbor.

It is unfortunate that these time delays affected the first guests of the Villa. The guests showed up while these finishing touches were being completed and moreover and they weren’t there to witness the community pitch to make sure these guests would have the villa and the amazing vacation they were expecting. The Owners tried to diffuse the situation and accommodate their guests by offering free boat rentals for the entire day even though they would only need three hours to finish up… to offering them different units for the night. The Owners at this resort prove time and again that they will do everything they can to make your stay a great one and make their guests happy.

Good people, great place and exceptional memories.

You will love this place for your family get away. The hotel is on a small bay with a private beach perfect for the little ones because the waves are so mild. You might find another place on the water, but most places don't have the beach feature. We traveled with my Mom and it worked out perfectly because she had her own room downstairs (perfect since she can't climb the stairs) where she could see the kids coming and going. The hotel also has boats and jet ski rentals on site which is very convenient. Who wants to have to load up everyone again to go find a boat? I loved that the rooms have kitchenettes, BBQs and picnic tables so you don't have to worry about eating out after a day on the water. There's a small store close by or you can drive into town and stock up on groceries. This would be a great place for a special party or a wedding. There's a large grass area looking out onto the lake where you could set up a white tent with tables and a dance floor. They also have a large old white house from the early 1900s with a porch and columns and flowers pouring out of the flower pots. It looks pretty awesome and it will sleep a lot of people. This is a nice relaxing place for all kinds of occassions. We have enjoyed it four different summers and each time it has been wonderful experience. We were all very comfortable.

Room Tip: We loved our room that had a bedroom/living area (combo), bathroom and kitchenette downstairs and tw...

Four generations of my family enjoy Lake George. We stayed at the Thunderbird Resort and found it to be a great experience. The house we rented had an enormous deck overlooking the Lake and it could not have been more beautiful! The rooms were clean, large and very comfortable.

We found the staff to be very responsive if we needed anything. Our stay at the Thunderbird Resort turned our summer vacation into a wonderful memory of time spent at Lake George.

Thank you to the Owners and staff of the Thunderbird Hotel!

Room Tip: The family townhouses are reasonably priced and provide a beautiful view of the Lake. The kitchen f...

We stayed at the Thunderbird Resort and found the the owner and staff to be very friendly and the accommodations to be clean, spacious and very comfortable.  The Resort also has a lovely beach that was perfect for our children to wade in and play in the sand.  Our entire family enjoyed our stay at the Thunderbird Resort.  We always recommend staying at the Thunderbird Resort to anyone we know who is going to Lake George.
 
They were in the midst of updating some of the units and the main house. I am looking forward to seeing the inprovements when we return next summer!
