The Inn on Lake Champlain
Reviewed March 20, 2010

We spent two nights at he Lake Champlain Inn. The owners were friendly, talkative and pleasant. The Inn is a tiny place with great charm. Other appropriate adjectives are quiet, relaxing and secluded. The eastern edge of the land borders the namesake lake. The breakfasts are good too.

My partner and I loved our stay at TLC Inn. As they say, the TLC Inn does exactly what it says on the tin. We stayed over the Thanksgiving holidays and unlike many other B&Bs that don't even open during this week, Nancy and Joe welcomed us with open arms into the most home-from-home B&B I have stayed in for some time. This included not only their famously good (and hearty!) breakfasts, but also a wonderful family Thanksgiving dinner (my partner and I, Joe and Nancy, and their daughter's family) at no extra cost.

Despite the cold weather outside, our room was warm and comfortable. The en suite was a real highlight with underfloor heating and a powerful, warm shower.

We got what we were looking for with TLC Inn, it being removed from the busyness and tackiness of Lake George but still in a beautiful countryside setting. The only thing I would say is that there are very few cafes/restaurants nearby and so you have to be prepared to drive for a bit to any of such amenities, and be prepared to eat early because they are all closed by 8pm during the winter! But this is not a place you come to for haute cuisine on your doorstep. However, it is in the middle of an area in which there is beautiful scenery and some envigorating walks.

Overall, I would highly recommend this Inn and its location for a peaceful get-away with family, or significant other.

What a pleasant and relaxing 4-day/5-night stay!! The owners - Nancy and Joe - were great hosts, sharing their home and knowledge of the area with their guests. The B&B was near full every evening, and we had the pleasure of sharing our stay with couples from as far as England to as close as Westchester, NY - all expressed satisfaction with their accommodations - and of course, the gourmet breakfasts! Having searched TripAdvisor prior to booking (to check reviews), we had minor concern for the one negative review - but saw no evidence whatsoever of the discontent expressed. The hosts were only helpful and friendly - their charm really added to our "getaway weekend-plus". Their suggestions on location attractions, places to dine and shop along with daily (accurate) weather reports allowed us to maximize the time we had available. The room was extremely clean and comfortable - and the breakfasts are some of the best we've had in 35 years of travel. The Inn is a great hub for day tripping - 5 major attractions within easy commutes (Fort Ticonderoga - Crown Pt./ Shelburn Museum Complex/ Saratoga National Battlefield/ Lake Placid-White Face Mt. - Au Sable Chasm/ Town Woodstock Vt.). Closing comment - we're recommending this B&B to other family that will be visiting in the future - and TLC Inn will be our accommodations for our next trip to the Lake Champlain Region.

My husband spent a weekend here and loved every minute of our stay. The location is magificent - quiet and serene which is what we were looking for. Hummingbirds came up to feed on the porch. We were greeted by a pleasant and helpful inn keeper. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfast were two of the best that we have had anywhere and we have stayed in over two dozen B and B's. Our room was small but we felt that the value was right. This is one of those hidden treasures!

We were very disappointed in our stay at the TLC. We were rudely greeted at 2:57 PM with a "you are early" and told to go stretch our legs. The check-in time was not indicated on the web site or in the correspondence from the owners. The property was littered with old shopping carts, piles of collected items, and empty motor oil cans. The rooms were not properly cleaned and dead bugs and spider webs were all around. We were not given the room that we reserved. All in all, this was the most disappointing B&B we have encountered in many years of travel.

This is the ideal B&B right on Lake Champlain, set off by itself so that you get the full impact of being in the country. You can look across the lake to Vermont if you want to, but the Adirondack village of Putnam Station has its own charms--apple orchards, horse farms, fishing, 18th century churchyards, etc. --close to Fort Ticonderoga and other historic sights. The B&B is an old farmhouse with a lot of country character but updated with all the modern conveniences. Its squeaky clean and beautifully decorated in country-Victorian style. The hosts are wonderfully welcoming and the breakfast is worthy of Gourmet magazine. A fantastic getaway.
