“A great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

I searched the internet for a place to stay on Lake George and am extremely pleased with my choice! The staff was exceptional from the first phone call to the check-out. The location is wonderful, and they have lots of fun toys to play with at the lake. We booked a 2-bedroom housekeeping unit. The unit was nice and big. I even thought the bed was comfortable and had good quality linens.

My only slight disappointment was with the kitchen. It was the most under-stocked kitchen I have ever seen ... no napkins/papertowels, no salt/pepper, one towel that was stained and dirty, no dishwasher, no counter space, barely enough plates/dishes for a small family, barely enough pots/pans to cook anything. We also had HUGE oven issues, but hopefully that was only specific to our unit. So if you plan on cooking while you are here, you'll need to pack everything that you might need to supply the kitchen, which is pretty unrealistic for those traveling by plane. Or you'll have to buy salt, pepper, all paper goods, etc and end up leaving it there for the housekeeping staff to take home (insert heavy sigh.)

One other item that the website doesn't mention ... this entire property sits on a huge downhill slope to the lake. This was not a problem for my family because we are all in good health and enjoyed the exercise. However, if you are in not-so-good health, have whiney kids or even just have bad knees, the hike back up from the lake might be an issue.

Room Tip: The mountain side is quiet!

Memorial Day weekend was our 2nd stay at the hotel. Unfortunately, the pool did not look ready. But weather was rainy anyway. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Rooms clean, grounds clean, amazing view...right on the lake with 2 pools, game room, and fishing carters on property. What more could you want? Worth the stay. Cannot wait to return!

We recently stay at flamingo resort for Memorial Day weekend, we had a great time there, we rented the cottage with two bedrooms kitchen living room etc, it was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and the thing that I most love about the resort is the customer service that they have the owners were very a tentative, super nice making us feel like family. I can't wait to go back.
I would recommend everyone to go to the flamingo resort the money you'll expend it's worth it.

We have been going to Lake George for 4 years now and will only stay at the Flamingo Resort. We love the service and the warm welcome we receive their. The staff remembers us each year and it makes us feel great. The view on top of the hill is incredible and the location is perfect. You do have to get down to the lake early to reserve a chair but it is always well maintained. I highly recommended the Flamingo Resort to anyone going to Lake George

We stayed here in September to attend the Adirondack's Car show. We rented the 3 bedroom unit for 8 ppl. We had 6 adults and 3 small children and it was plenty of room for our large party. The kitchen was fully equipped and had plenty of room for everyone. Even in September we had nice weather and were able to use the pool which was great. They have a nice beach with rowboats which the guys took out to fish. Grounds were nicely maintained. We had a long drive and left at night so the kids could sleep through the ride and the owner was nice enough to leave the keys out for us and collected our payment in the morning. Overall it was great we are going back this summer

We had such a great time recently at the Flamingo resort on Lake George. It was our first time there, but we will most certainly be back! The resort itself was in a great location with amazing views of the mountains and lake. It was very peaceful. There were two pools as well as the lakeside beach so while there were a good number of people there it didn't feel crowded. Both pools were a good size and were very clean and nice. They also had a games room and numerous grills around the property, so there is plently to do! Everything was spotless and very well maintained. Also the trolley stops just outside, which is very convenient for hopping into the towns of Lake George or Bolton Landing.
From the moment we arrived we found all the staff to be so friendly, helpful and accomodating. We arrived a little early, but were able to get into our cottage straight away. We found it was very clean and nice and ideally situated just a few steps from the lake. Also one night we had planned on going into the town of Bolton Landing, but, as we were running late, we missed the trolley. The people at the front desk noticed and one of them, George, very kindly offered to run us into the town in his car. We really appreciated this! Talk about helpful! Great service from people who really seem to care. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 131. It was a two room cottage very close to the lake. Very nice. Quiet.

I have stayed at over 10 different places in Lake George over the years, but the Flamingo is the best .
The waterfront is excellent,you can stay in shallow water,or venture out to deep water that most places do not have in there protected swim areas.
The bridge speaks for itself for fun.
The staff went out of there way to make us have a great time.
Flamingo is not fancy,but it's clean and very comfortable.

Room Tip: 1,2 or 3 bedroom units
