Positive Reviews

Close to the beach, right on Canada Street

Located right on Canada Street, Lake George's main thoroughfare, this property offered easy access to a host of area shops and restaurants as well as to the lake itself. Its quiet private beach area was praised and many also liked the complimentary kayak/canoe rental option.

Great customer service, earnest owner

Nothing, it seemed, was too much trouble for the team here, who went out of their way to accommodate guests' requests. Judging by individual comments, this property's owner is frequently on-site and is genuinely interested in the welfare of his clientele.

Clean as a whistle

The overall standard of housekeeping here was found to be absolutely superb. Units themselves were spotless, but the standards were equally high in this property's common spaces, with both the pool and hot tub areas receiving kudos for cleanliness.

Negative Reviews

Patchy Wi-Fi

The poor Wi-Fi connection was an on-going bugbear here. Many struggled to connect and those that did were annoyed to find that the service was patchy and intermittent.

Uncomfortable beds, noisy AC

The beds here are downright uncomfortable, with guests consistently reporting waking up with aches and pains. Hard as boards but still too soft for some, the mattresses at this property just aren't quite right. Also, many commented that the in-room air conditioning units are loud, a point that had a negative impact on sleep quality.

Dated décor

Most guests were distinctly unimpressed by this property's drab and dreary décor. A more modern touch would be welcomed.
