Traveled to Cresthaven at Lake George with my wife and two children (3 years and 3 months) for a much needed 5 night away. Would have given 4.5 stars if possible. So nice we actually stayed an extra night!
We really enjoyed our stay at Cresthaven and would recommend it to others. If you have a family with younger children it is ideal. Between the beach, the pool, and the restaurant, you can't really go wrong. It is close to LGV, but you don't have to leave the property if you do not want to.
-Location. Lake George is a great place to go with a family. Cresthaven is close enough to Lake George Village and nearby grocery stores, yet feels very private once you are on the property.
-Accommodations. We stayed in unit 41. It was part of a 4 unit townhouse. It was basically like having our own log cabin. Very little noise from other units although they were occupied. Nice finishes throughout including a jetted tub, modern kitchen with all the plates/pots/utensils you would need, and TVs in both bedrooms. Full size washer/dryer(essential for families). The deck overlooking the lake, along with the available bbq was a big plus too.
-Amenities. The pool was very nice. Great for small kids. The beach was well maintained and not too busy even on very nice days. There are also docks that are great for fishing with young children. Finally, there is a small gym and arcade with five or six video games.
-Staff. Everyone was nice. They even accommodated us staying an extra night (a saturday) with no hassle. Also, staff was always happy to give rides up and down hill to beach.
-Grocery Delivery. This was huge for a family travelling. When we arrived, everything we requested was unpacked in the fridge/freezer or on the kitchen counter.
-Discounted tickets to "The Great Escape Six Flags".
-Food. The Boathouse is a cool place, and they have live music most nights. The food was average and perhaps a bit overpriced. From what we could tell this is a very popular place with many families coming and going via boat during dinner hours.
-Playground/Volleyball. A bit old and somewhat falling apart with a few bees' nests. Did not stop my 3 year old from loving it, but was not ideal. Volleyball court looked like it had not been used in years.
-Activities. There were scavenger hunts and face painting. Might be better for older children. My 3 year old enjoyed the face painting.
-Might not be good for those with difficulty climbing hills, as some of the units are a bit of an uphill hike to/from the beach.
-Tried to check in early on a Sunday. Didn't get to check in until 3pm.
-Some other reviews complained about having to start the laundry on departure. This took two minutes and was NOT a big deal at all.
