“Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous. This is the quintessential Adirondack / Lake George Resort with spectacular views without any of the congestion of Lake George, itself. Perfect for lunch on the terrace and there are patios on the water with Adirondack chairs and cocktail menus. There are several small towns en route with their own vistas so the drive is a pleasure as well.”
