Lake George Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 25 Lake George B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 31, 2012

How do you take a relatively modest B&B and make it into one of the best vacation stays we have ever experienced? Simply the best service we have ever received at a hotel/B&B stay.
First the particulars: We spent a 3 day weekend here this past weekend. We stayed in room #7 and our friends in room #8. Each room was fine. Spotlessly clean. The bed was more than comfortable with plenty of pillows. The bathroom was small and the shower was tiny, but we had no expectations that were different from what we experienced. Water pressure was great and the a/c in the room was plenty strong enough and its hum drowned out any sounds from other rooms or outside.

Breakfasts were awesome. The fruit "appetizers" that Marilyn jazzed up with spices were quite delicious and our three different breakfast entrees each morning were delicious. When Marilyn realized that none of us ate pork, she offered turkey bacon. Very thoughtful.

That was just a small example of all the services that Marilyn provided (others wrote about Mike, as well, but we did not see or meet him). When we ask about locations to rent boats, Marilyn called several and (very neatly) compiled the information for each. She offered advice about our dinner choices and was constantly making sure that everything was to our liking. When we asked for an extended check out on Monday, she graciously let us stay until 3 in one of the rooms, since it was not rented out that night.

Service goes a long way to making a business a success, and Marilyn went well beyond the minimum necessary every time. Since we don't often return to the same location each year, we suggested to Marilyn that we will let her know next spring where we are heading for our summer weekend such that she can buy a B&B there. That way we know our stay will be a success!

Room Tip: If you need a bigger room to spread out, room 8 has a separate couch and seating area. The stairs t...

Just home from an amazing first visit to the Lake George area. Great boat tour up the lake, good restaurants, and a very comfortable stay at Marilyn and Mike's Lake George Bed and Breakfast! Room and bed were excellent and breakfast even better (the paninis were incredible!). The in-room Keurig was just the icing on the cake. As others mentioned, the location can't be beat, a short walk to the whole town. Great hosts, we will certainly visit again when in the area.

The place is really nice with excellent location. The property is right on Lake George. They offer excellent breakfast and the owner is a very nice and warm couple. The bathroom in our room had a very small shower and the toilet seat could not be put up.

Other than that the place is worth staying.

Thank you for your review of our B&B, and for all of the kind and happy comments you made during your stay as well. It was lovely to have you and your family here, especially as you had traveled so very far!
I appreciate your letting us know about the toilet seat not staying up in your bathroom. We replaced it immediately upon reading your review, and I’m so sorry for the frustration it must have caused while not working properly.
Each of our bathrooms is as unique as our rooms! Some of the rooms have bathtubs and showers, some stand-in showers, and some larger showers. We’re delighted that you noticed the cleanliness of the bathrooms & rooms. I, personally, and our assistant innkeeper Lauren, clean the rooms ourselves. We both take great pride in giving you a perfectly clean room, down to the last detail.
We hope to see you again one day should your travels bring you to Lake George! - Marilyn

This is a very nice bed-and-breakfast. The location is excellent and the staff is wonderful. They cater to your every need. The rooms were clean and very nicely appointed. Breakfast was very good and they were eager to accommodate any special needs that we had. This is a nice place and the parking is free, what else could you ask for.

What luck we had in finding this gem of a B&B. It was unfortunate that our first two days in Lake George, we had to stay at the impersonal Holiday Inn because the B&B was sold out, but it was totally worth packing and making the move when the B&B first had rooms available. Marilyn was so friendly and accommodating that I felt we were visiting family as opposed to a business transaction. The location was a quick walk from the Lake George, the shops on Canada St, and Fort William Henry. We stayed in Room 2 which is sort of their showcase room and it was lovely. I typically prefer baths and was disappointed that Room 2 only had a shower, but once I got there, it was a very nice shower and it really wasn't that much of a detraction at all. I was even pleased to have wonderful citrus scented soaps and lotions provided, a nice touch I don't always expect from B&Bs. Marilyn was a marvelous cook and her breakfasts were magnificent. I plan to try some of her fruit embellishments in the future. And even though we couldn't convince her to cook us dinner, she did have some wonderful recommendations for restaurants in the area. It is unlikely that we would have visited the area had it not been for a family wedding, but now that we have been, we want to go back and stay at the Lake George B&B again.

My husband and I just returned home from a weekend at this B & B. It was our first experience staying at a B & B, and we had no idea what to expect. I must say that we had a wonderful experience! We stayed in Room 1. First of all, the whole B & B is immaculate. I have never stayed at a place that was so clean. Our room was cozy, the bed was firm but comfortable. The shower had great water pressure. The toiletries were wonderful. Marilyn, the host, was very kind and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious. The first morning we had a grapes with vanilla and mint, and then bourbon french toast with pecan butter. The second morning an egg, ham, tomato and cheddar panini was served along with sliced strawberries with lemon sugar. If you don't like the breakfast menu, Marilyn will make you whatever you want. Her assistant, Lauren, was very nice as well. The location is convenient and quiet. It is about a block west of Canada Street. We will definitely return for another visit.
