I can't say enough good things about Still Bay. My parents, brother, and I had a wonderful 3-night stay there in late August. To re-iterate many of the positives mentioned in prior reviews:
-- the breakfasts were absolutely outstanding; delicious, fresh, abundant, and in a truly charming setting. What a terrific way to start the day.
-- the rooms were spotless.
-- the property is immaculate, abounding in flowers, and, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful lawns on the lake.
-- the owners were terrific hosts, always ready with spot-on restaurant recommendations, mailing letters, giving directions, etc., and generally setting a relaxing, pleasant atmosphere.
A few additional notes:
-- the bathrooms are small, but I think that you probably have to go up in price to a considerable degree to have it any differently in most other Lake George properties
-- any reasonable person would absolutely consider the rooms to have a view of the lake (OK, at a slight angle, but let's be serious -- the view is terrific)
-- we went for breakfast early (around 8:15 am), took our time, and ate our fill. During this time, they were constantly replenishing the pancakes, pastries, etc. I can't confirm if this continues right up until the end of breakfast, but at least while we were there it was always a truly beautiful selection.
We would definitely recommend Still Bay -- especially for families that favor a peaceful environment with a beautiful (average sized) beach for swimming, a tremendous lawn (for lounging or playing frisbee or tossing a football), wonderful breakfasts, and pleasant and helpful hosts. Now, if they only put up a few hammocks on the lawn, it would be perfect!
