Our room was comfortable and well appointed with a great bathroom. Nice views of Lake George from both deck levels and our room.

My wife and I went there in June and liked it so much we returned today again. We live around and so we know most places. This one is very classy, tasty and cozy. I definitely recommend it. The only thing that annoyed me was the waiter was a bit too talkative. Otherwise a great place.
