Owner description: During a 1791 visit, Thomas Jefferson was moved to say, "Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw." Not much has changed. Today this 32-mile long, 3-mile wide dazzling lake draws vactioners who come to enjoy a plethora of outdoor endeavors including sailing, swimming, cruising on historic steamboats, hiking and more.

Lake George is good, but below my expectation, and does not live up to the reputation as the “queen of American lakes”. The cruise on Minne Haha is good. Two things are memorable. Many colorful parasails dotted the sky. Passing a small islet with a swimming pool, we saw several men and women there. They lined up, waving to us, and then turning around to moon us. The sight was neither sexual nor unfriendly, but surreal and entertaining.

Been going to Lake George every year since I was born. So much energy! A great place to bring your family (including the dog!). Also a great place to meet up with friends. Absolutely gorgeous and clean. Reasonable prices for food and souveniers. Crazy busy though, but with so many options it's easy to just move on if somewhere is too crowded. So much to be said about Lake George Village. I prefer staying in a hotel Like Fort William Henry where I can park and walk everywhere, but there is a shuttle that runs constantly through town and stops all over.

Having travelled around the country, Lake George is definitely a "gem"....great way to see the lake is by one of the steam boats in town.
