The Inn at Erlowest

Reviewed February 20, 2012

Just back from an overnight escape for my husband's 50th birthday. Our winter has been non-existent, weather-wise, this year. So, we were able to enjoy sitting outside in the sun watching the glistening lake, while staying warm by the beautiful outdoor fireplace.
The Howe room was spotless & very nicely appointed. There is water damage in the ceiling and on the bathroom wallpaper, and some over-all wear and tear, which detracted from the elegant appearance somewhat.
The staff members were all very friendly and helpful.
The food was absolutely delicious, and so beautifully presented. The atmosphere was casual and relaxing. Dinner included an appetizer, main course, and dessert; ANYTHING on the menu. Drinks are extra, of course. The included breakfast was plenty.
DO bring a knife to cut up the delicious cheeses, and you might want to bring some wine from home, as there is champagne, but just a small bottle...you'll probably want a bit more.

Room Tip: We booked a Sunday night of a 3-day weekend, and the "Clipper Package" was much cheaper th...

We just got back from a quick weekend to Lake George. We wanted a quiet, romantic trip just to relax and I'm so glad we chose to stay at The Inn. The place is so gorgeous and well kept. We stayed in the Shepard Room, which had a very nice view of the lake and the sun streamed in through the windows in the morning. The mattress was comfy. The jacuzzi was great. Plenty of towels in the bathroom. There was a complimentary bottle of champagne and snacks in our room upon our arrival.
Make sure to eat at the restaurant, or at least have a drink and snack at the bar. We had dinner our first night and everything was delicious!
The staff is very friendly and always ready to help or answer a question.

We stayed here in the spring of 2011 and loved it! We intended to stay for 1 night and ended up staying one more. The food was amazing, and the atmosphere was so romantic. Even though it was still cold in the evenings we sat outside both nights and the staff made a blazing fire in the most incredible outdoor fireplace. We are planning to return again this spring.

It is a unique "hotel" that feels intimate, personal and very special. Food was excellent, and we were encouraged to speak to the chef and check out the kitchen. Staff were accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. It was a real pleasure to be here.

Room Tip: go online and look at the rooms, your choice of fireplace, whirlpool, sitting area, view. All rooms...

An Incredibly beautiful Inn, with 10 rooms and function room as well as dining rooms.
The first floor patio has an outdoor fireplace that has Lake George for a backdrop, A second floor patio is more private and overlooks the lake as well. 2 weddings were going on while I was there, you wouldn't have known it . Although attached to the Inn it was seperate enough. My package included dinner and continental breakfast. The breakfast is keeping it from 4 stars. Mushy fruit and cold toast don't cut it. The blackberry merlot sorbet at dinner made up for it as did the pumpkin raviolis, and hanger steak and an extensive wine (easily over 300 to choose from) list should cover anyone's taste The bar off the (lobby?) was intimate and welcoming. The room was spacious, with opening windows, a gas fireplace, and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The bathroom was huge and had a jetted tub. Would love to return, the locals were friendly and offered great tips for seeing things not quite on the "tourist" list!! Best of all no phones in the room.

Room Tip: Don't think there's a bad one...

We were able to book an Escape Package at the Erlowest that included room, three course dinner, and the other amenities included with the room (bottle of wine with cheese plate upon arrival and continental breakfast). We had our choice of three rooms when I called, and I am thrilled that the Shepard was a perfect choice for us.

Our server at dinner, Zack, was pleasant, well-informed and efficient. Presentation of food was beautiful and the menu choices were plentiful. And, while all the food was delicious, it lacked what I call the "nom-nom factor". Nevertheless, the setting and total experience were quite enjoyable.

We found our room and the partial lake-view to be quite charming; loved the two-person jacuzzi, abundance of towels and quite nice toiletries; thoroughly enjoyed the reisling (instead of champagne) and cheese platter; we were grateful for the very nice front-desk person who prepared (twice) a beautifully prepared coffee service for us to enjoy in our room several hours before breakfast was served.

The Inn at Erlowest seems to have a great attention to detail--it is apparent throughout the physical property as well as in the genuinely friendly attitudes of all of the staff members we encountered.

We are looking forward to returning to the Inn next year!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a lake view!
