My family and I stayed recently for a multi-family reunion. We rented a total of 6 condos/villas and had more than enough room for all. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us; setting up and taking down tables and chairs for two outdoor dinner events, bringing extra cooking/serving dishes and generally providing everything we asked for.
An earlier reviewer mentioned that the manager seems to work 24/7. That does indeed seem to be the case, but the rest of the staff was just as service-oriented and helpful.
The property is beautiful with outstanding views of the lake. It is perfectly located in between Lake George Village and Bolton Landing. The condos are spacious, clean and comfortable.
If I had one comment to make where there is room for improvement, it would be that the kitchens are rather sparsely supplied. Our unit did not have a bottle opener or any cooking knives. When mentioned to staff, they were promptly supplied, however.
To Deb and staff, thank you for a wonderful week!

Before starting this review, I read some of the 'lesser rated reviews' posted here on Trip Advisor, as this was different from my experience and was curious what the problems were? They all appear to be from 2009 and older? I can only assume that the place has gotten new owners and units vastly updated, as we had great service and wonderful accomodations. We had a family reunion on the property for a week, and the staff could not have been more welcoming and responsive. They provided us tables/chairs, additional grills, garbage cans, kitchen supplies... anything we asked for was delievered w/in 1/2 hr. Now that's service!
Our family members chose to stay in both the townhomes and villas. I find it a great service to offer both kinds of accomodations - the townhomes are upscale, large and completely equipped; the villas are really more like cabins - for those that want a more 'adirondack' experience, definitely an older feel but clean, right on the water with great sitting porches. A great time was had by all!

My mom and I stayed for a week at a villa on the water. Great view of the lake, quiet and we had everything we needed. One of the owners stopped by to make sure everything was ok and Debbie the rental agent checked to see if we needed anything. Our villa was clean, well equipped, totally accommodating. Highly recommend the villas on the water, well worth it! We have stayed there the last couple of years and will make reservations for 2013!

Room Tip: We love the villas (cabins) on the lake, big porches and huge windows in the kitchen and living room...

We just stayed at Sun Castle for Memorial day weeked. The condos are beautiful and very accomadating! Full kitchen with plenty of plates and silverware. Perfect for houseing 3 couples. The rooms were very clean, we felt like we were staying in our own home and not a hotel! There are also docks available so we brought our boat with us and used there boat launch. Then tied it up to their docks. The decks on both floors overlook beautiful lake George, and town is just a few minutes down the road. This was our second time staying here, the staff is so friendly and we can't wait to go back! <3

I recently took my family (wife, 2 year old and 5 month old) up for a week at Sun Castle. The townhouse we had was very clean and our master bedroom had a very clean jacuzzi with an immaculate view of the lake. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook. Dishwasher and Laundry Machines worked great. The booking process was very easy and smooth (Thanks, Debbie). 5 minute drive from the village of Lake George. You can walk by the lake, hang on the beach and then hit the streets for some shopping and video gaming. We were looking for a home away from hustle and bustle of city life. Sun Castle provided that. Highly recommended.
