just came back from a wonderful stay at dillon hill inn over memorial day weekend. it's off the beaten track, yet just a short drive away from lake george, and points north such as lake placid and lake saranac are easily accessible. and of course it is right by gore mt skiing.
the website doesn't do justice to the actual place. it's by far one of the best B&Bs we have stayed at. rooms are more than spacious, meticulously kept, with tasteful decorations, and rusty and comfortable furniture. the common area includes a music room with a grand piano, a TV room, a large dining room where breakfast is served, and a great room w large couches and a fireplace! all this is in addition to a screened in porch great for reading, sipping tea/coffee, and looking at the tranquil surroundings. there is also an outdoor deck where you can sunbathe. the outdoor space is very large, and landscaped. the inn also has 2 cabins, each has 2 bed 2 full bath full kitchen and living room, with outdoor grill and porch.
best of all, the host and hostess cannot be more hospitable and engaging. nina's breakfast is phenomenal! they made us feel right at home and cannot be more helpful recommending everything from what to do, where to eat, to what to see.
the town of wevertown is tucked away and provides a quiet retreat yet an excellent base to explore the surround area. there are numerous hiking trails and beautiful lakes nearby, and miles of scenic drive. museums, antique shops, lake george are all a short drive a way. in the nearby town of northcreek, there are a handful of nice restaurants. our favorite is bar vino, where there is an extensive list of wine and draft beer, and delicious tapas plates, we went twice!
all in all, a wonderful experience (not to mention very reasonable priced), and will definitely go back!
