My husband and I recently had the good fortune to secure a rental at Mt. Knoll Cottages. We had several questions prior to our visit and Michael, the owner, answered all of them quickly. We've stayed at other places on the lake and due to a cancellation we were able to stay here.This is by far the nicest place we've enjoyed. As others have said, the cottages are large, clean and in excellent condition. We truly enjoyed the porch each and every day even during a thunderstorm. Michael is on the property but not intrusive in any way. We found this to be comforting that he's so attentive to his guests. There is a firepit at night where guests gather around - we didn't partake of this but it looked like everyone really enjoyed it. The views are astounding - we hope to go back next year. Staying here is a sure bet - just don't take my week please!!!

Room Tip: We have some walking issues and found any of the cabins from 1 to 5 would be great for us - just say...

I have been staying at Mt.Knoll off and on for 30 years! One of my biggest thrills was the first year I stayed there with my wife and kids. This August will be our 10th year in a row as a family. Plus we go the same week every summer, so we get to see our "Lake George friends" each and every year as they all return the same week as well. They have become like extended family. Lake George is a very special place to begin with, but staying at Mt.Knoll just takes it to another level. Nothing beats a little beer or wine and cheese from Oscar's down at the Mt.Knoll beach after a long day in the water, followed by great bbq and a campfire on the patio to roast marshmellows. Hope to see you at Mt.Knoll soon!

Found Mt. Knoll Beach on the internet and booked due to the good reviews... very glad we did! Michael the property manager was very kind on the phone and very informative on the property and the Lake George area, he answered all the questions we had. We came in Sept. to see the fall foliage. Upon arrival he was just as nice in person and even gave us a personal tour of our cabin and the property as we never stayed there before. Our cabin was number 8, it was a log cabin with a lake view, a full kitchen, bathroom, living room area with fireplace and it had a screened in porch facing the lake, great for morning coffee! The cabin was clean and roomy for the 2 of us. It was a short walk to the lake where we enjoyed the adirondack chairs on the beach and had a patio with a fire pit for nightly fires. Michael was always around if we needed anything and the stay at Mt. Knoll Beach was fabulous... we will be back again!

My wife and I were looking for a place in Lake George to spend our vacation. We were looking on the internet and were lucky to find MT. Knoll Beach Cottages. This place is truly a gem. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The beachfront property was excellent. The sand and water are pristine. I have two young boys ages 5 and 2.5 and this place was great for them. Mike the caretaker was great to my children and was more than accommodating to my family. The property is clean , well maintained and was a very safe enviorment for my children. While there we looked at other places we saw on the internet and said to each other that we were very lucky to have stayed at Mt. Knoll. If you want a place that's safe, clean, friendly with a beautiful beach and view this is it.

Cottages were cute. Place was nice, although the beach & swim area were too small. Most upsetting was the rudeness exhibited by the man representing Mt Knoll Cottages. Yes, he was nice enough to adults. He was very unkind to neighboring children however, and on more than one occasion, we observed him yelling at them. We're not fooled by someone who treats paying adults well. If he disrespects children, we don't want to be there.

mtknoll, Manager at Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages, responded to this review, August 20, 2010
Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages is a private resort as are all resort properties in the Diamond Point area. When people from neighboring properties choose to come over and or around the fence and use our facilities yes they are kindly asked to vacate the premises. Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages is a private family resort that is intended for the use of our registered guests only. For the protection of the young children and families that swim, play and relax at our resort we do not permit people who are not registered guests at our facility.

Being a resort with only 10 cottages we know all of our guests by name. This review was written by someone that did not stay at our resort. It is obvious to us this reviewer is the parent with her child who was staying at a neighboring property and was asked to vacate our private property on more than one occasion as they were not guests of our resort. This is an obvious attempt to smear our good name. Funny how they state our beach & swim area were too small, but that’s what they came over to use.

Here at Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages an overwhelming majority of our guests return year after year. Some of our families have been vacationing at Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages for 30, 40 even over 50 years! This year, 2010, we have guests that celebrated their 56th year at Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages! Read the other reviews and make a decision for yourself. Better yet, visit our website or call us directly and start planning your next vacation here at Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages. We look forward to meeting you.

We wanted to get away for Labor Day weekend. After a bit of research we came upon Mt. Knoll which is family owned, clean and very comfortable. Michael, the owner was genuinely accommodating and welcoming to us as "newbies". The rest of the vacationers were all regulars. Between the fire-pit, kayaks, row boats and private beach to set sail off of, this experience was wonderful. It's a short car ride to the village and surrounding towns and sights. We couldn't have been happier with the atmosphere, accommodations and value.

This may have been our first visit but will definitely not be our last!!!!

We found Mt. Knoll Beach Cottages years ago when our kids were small, and discovered a jewel. We've been back every year. With only ten units on the property, this resort offers the advantage of a fun-loving family atmosphere combined with the privacy of a hidden retreat. The entrance road winds up and over a hill to a breathtaking lake view. The Adirondack cabins and cottages are original, each with their own unique character, some with fireplaces, most with full lake views, all with porches. At the lakefront, there’s a big grassy lawn for field games, then beyond the trees, a flat, sandy beach in a beautiful cove. At night, we all come together to unwind at a campfire on the beach. The lake reflects the moon like glass and everything feels right at Mt. Knoll Beach.

The caring service of this family-owned resort has never wavered, and quality improvements are always made with pride. Cabins are clean and well-equipped for the simple life with comfortable beds, AC and heating units, and small bathrooms. There are no dishwashers, bathtubs, or big screen TVs, and cell phone and internet service may be limited. But, if you want a welcoming place where no one else can find you, this is it!
