“Good stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We just spent a weekend here. We had the cabin #11. It was clean with a big bathroom but the decor is very dated. Beds were comfortable and linens clean, which was my main concern. Bathroom should have fan or air vent, things do tend to feel damp at times. Heated pool was warm and clean. We would definitely stay again , clean but dated. If you like camping and an adventure this is a nice place.

Just outside the very busy village of Lake George is this place....very simple and quiet ...English Brook Cottages ....perfect for a relaxing get -away with the family. The cottage was very simple but clean and comfortable, pool was sparkling clean and not overcrowded like many places we've stayed and the owners were always there to help answer any questions we had. The location was awesome just a few minutes from everything...and the kids loved the playground, basketball and pool areas. If you're looking for all the amenities..you probably will be disappointed...but if it's peace and quiet and a comfortable and relaxing cottage in Lake George that you're looking for at a reasonable price then this place should be at the top of your list...

Great place off the beaten path. Great for kids. we called it glamping, glamour / camping. For the price it was all we needed. The owners were really nice and helpful.Dont expect too much and you wont be disappointed.

We stayed in the "Buckingham Cottage". We had both the upstairs and downstairs units. Both units smelt terrible and were filthy. Downstairs was dark, moldy and musty. The sheets and blankets were old and damp. It was so bad, I was afraid to let my children go under the covers. We slept above blankets we brought from home. We kept all the windows and doors open with the A/C on and the smell was still unbearable. The smell lingered on our belongings and made us uncomfortable all the way home! Upstairs smelt like urine. We are used to camping in cabins and/or cottages and were not looking for luxury, the problem here is the condition of the units. Also, it is located right on the main road. We sat on the "screened in" porch and heard all the cars whizzing by. There was no place for the kids to play except the parking lot. Even the bbqs were located there.

The beds and bedding were damp and heavy with moisture right down to, and includiing the mattress. The box spring of one bed was collapsing and being supported by some makeshift prop. The floors were dirty. The shower stall had green water deposits all over the walls and floor, indicating that, if it had been cleaned at all, it could only have been minimal. The items provided for the efficiency kitchen were dirty. Owners and visitors walked their dogs just outside our cabin. It was impossible to step outside without being besieged by mosquitos.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

We stayed onthe #11. When we got here it must have rained the previous days because the floors were wet and everything like bedding and towels were damp. The walls were so thin and ours was located directly on the highway with all the windows closed we still could hear so much traffic... Not very much like the wilderness. There were plenty of bugs but you are in the woods so I would expect that. The shower had mold in it and the temperature was hard to control. Overall this place was fine for a one night stay but nothing more than that. It's about a five minute drive into town, wish it was closer!
