My family just got back from vacation at Still Bay and we were very happy to have stayed there. It was exactly what we thought when we booked it: quiet location outside the busy village of Lake George, a private beach for the kiddos to play on, free breakfast, and reasonable rates. Most of the guests we spoke to said they'd been coming back for many years and we can see why.
The beach. It was a 20 second walk from the rooms. There were other guests but it was so big we almost always felt like we were the only ones on it. My kids--3 and 6--loved swimming and going on the paddleboats. Having the private beach so close and open allowed us to do other things (horseback riding, shopping, Magic Forest, etc.) during the day and still be able to get plenty of swimming/beach time in mornings or early evenings or whenever in between.
The breakfast. Exactly as described. Lots to eat for the kiddos and adults and things were replenished throughout the serving time. Muffins, donuts, bagels, scones, coffeecakes, sausage, hot pancakes or french toast.
The location. Just minutes by car to the village of Lake George but quieter and without the traffic hassles of being right in Lake George.
Not so Pros:
The rooms. It is an old Lake George resort and the rooms reflect that. The grounds of the place are well kept up but, yes, the room and furnishings were all best described as 70's. The TV was tiny. The bathroom was tiny. Was nice to have the girls each have a twin bed in a separate room though.
The neighbors. Still Bay itself was a good quiet place to read a book at night--which is all I wanted once the girls were in bed. Unfortunately, one of the neighboring resorts (Depe Dene) had "family party" nights with a DJ and blaring sound system Mon, Wed & Fri nights until 9:30. Not Still Bay's fault, but just know it going in.
All in all, it was a great place for the money and we'll likely be going back.
