The weather was perfect and we had a very relaxing and fun weekend at Chelka. They have rooms on the second floor from where you get...

My husband and I chose this lodge after days of research on the internet for the perfect place to share our 24th Anniversary on October 8th. Our goal was to find a quiet and romantic spot with a lake view where we could celebrate with Lobster and Champagne in the evening, then wake up to a refreshing boat ride before...

We have been to Lake George many times, but Chella Lodge was our best stay ever. Right on the lake and within a 10 minute drive to downtown, this was the perfect vacation. The Carriage House we stayed in was perfect and very celan. All of the amenities you needed were there and we even had a barbeque outside. We...

My fiance and I stayed at Chelka Lodge for 2 nights in May. The view from this hotel is stunning and mesmerizing! The owners are very friendly and their dogs are so cute and well behaved. We went to a few restaurants on the water and drove all around Lake George. We found that the location of this hotel is...

Great views of Lake George and superb value. The owners live on site and are very friendly and attentive to ensure that all runs well. Canoes and Kayaks are available for the guest's use and there is a small beach and nice swimming area. The large deck/patio is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy breakfast, lunch or a glass...

We visited Chelka Lodge the weekend after Labor day. This was my first visit to Lake George and for my husband, he had been here many years ago. We fully enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere that the environment of the lodge creates. We stayed in a lakefront efficiency suite- so tastefully done and I was told had been newly opened Memorial...

We found Chelka Lodge while driving through Lake George looking for a place on the water with a view. The room we chose had a small balcony that was indeed right on the edge the water, with a spectacular view of the lake. In addition it had a fireplace, with two comfortable easy chairs, and all the room amenities we...

Quiet, serene, and with a beautiful view of the lake and pleasant lawn and beach area. The beach is small and there were Asian sand crab nets (that is a good thing striving to keep Lake George in its pristine condition) in the water when we went, however I waded past them and the water was gorgeous, fresh, just cool...

The minute we arrived at the Chelka Lodge, we knew we made the right choice. My wife and I were looking for a place a bit more quiet than the resorts in Lake George Village. Chelka lodge lived up to this. We stayed in one of the new efficiency rooms on the waterfront. The room was spacious & comfortable and...
