Dave and Judy are lovely hosts. The lake is beautiful, and we enjoyed spending lots of time on the beach. The ability to use the boats and paddle board are a great plus. Breakfast was also lovely. We hope to return! Robert and Rose Anne-Rhinebeck, NY

We had another great Labor Day Weekend at Chelka Lodge. The weather, Lodge, breakfast, etc. were still the best. The new deck was beautiful. We will be back next year. Dave and Judy were very gracious hosts as usual.

Kind of an average quaint place, pretty good facility, not top of the line but not too bad actually. Nice location, fairly nice view. Could use some overhaul and a bit more upkeep and maintenance. Overall, an average place to stay in the region for a not so terrible price range.

I have worked for the WDW Swan and Dolphin for 23 years as the Catering Sales Manager, so I am very critical to say the least when I stay at other properties or establishments. I found the Chelka Lodge on the internet and called that very day to book my reservation. I spoke with Dave the owner of Chelka, who...

First the bad news, but be sure to read the good news below. We stayed here Aug 2012. This property could easily be rated very good with a few simple inexpensive improvements. There is no coffee available on the property until 8 AM. The addition of a coffee maker in each room would be welcomed. Be sure to bring a...

Chelka Lodge is in beautiful spot on Lake George at Bolton Landing. The entire property is impeccably maintained. Nice lounge chairs on the lawn facing the lake, lovely swimming beach and dock plus kayaks and canoes for the guests free use. Our room was classic motel type; not over-the-top fancy by any means but super clean with a phenomenal view...

We recently stayed at Chelka for a week. Two adults and two young children. I was very nervous reading some of the reviews regarding the dogs (I am not a dog person) and the issue of digging in the sand. Upon check in, Dave informed us of the 'no digging at the shoreline rule'. A part of me was very...

Chelka is all about the view and their lakefront property. The current owners have spent their renovation $$$'s on enhancing the public areas of this small resort, only have leave the majority of rooms in the main lodge languishing from another era. It's like walking into a time warp! Whenever I stay there, I get the unsettled feeling that the...
