My dear lady and I arrived at the Lake George B&B to a warm and enthusiastic welcome from Marilyn Holmes, who owns the establishment with husband Mike. Both are down to earth, upbeat, and genuinely caring Innkeepers. Our room was bright, cheery, and very nicely appointed, keeping with the theme of the entire Inn. The bath was spacious, the bedding very comfortable, and the inclusion of a wall mounted flat panel TV provided welcome additional space for all of our "stuff". The common areas of the Inn, dining room, living room and kitchen, were all well kept, very clean, and comfortable. Parking is off street, on the Inn property.
Marilyn and Mike share cooking duties, and alternate days on which they cook and serve breakfast. Both are excellent chefs. Breakfasts were freshly prepared to order, abundant, and absolutely delicious, with Marilyn preparing savory dishes, while Mike prepares sweeter offerings.
The Inn is located two blocks from the town beach, which was unfortunately closed due to a broken sewer main. The state park beach is approximately twenty minutes leisurely strolling time, or five minutes drive, along the lakefront. Making us aware that the town beach was closed, Marilyn and Mike offered to pay for our parking ($8 daily) at the state beach, which was a wonderful gesture on their part, and speaks well of the type of hosts this couple truly are. We politely refused the offer, opting to stroll to the state beach, and would not have taken the offer had we driven.
We dined at several restaurants in the area, J.C. Montana's, Shepard's Cove, and Pumpernickel's, and I shall review each individually in separate discourse.
Suffice to state that we truly enjoyed our four nights at the Lake George B&B, and the warm hospitality of the Holmes'. We would definitely return, and have discussed so doing when the fall foliage is in full color. Many thanks to Marilyn and Mike for making our stay truly enjoyable.
