A gorgeous sight as you drive up the driveway. A beautiful castle and view of Lake George. Our room was lovely and had a fireplace. Dinner at the Inn was intimate with excellent service. Breakfast is included with your stay.

My husband and I prefer to stay at small inns and bed & breakfasts because they are usually quiet and relaxing. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed with the Inn at Erlowest.

The grounds are elegant, not just immaculate, reflecting great care and discipline. The check-in process is simple. There is an elevator for reaching the upstairs rooms. The suites are story-like with histories that may be fallacious but fun. We stayed in the Montcalm suite. We spent two nights, dining on premises the second night. We went to the Sagamore night...

This was our first stay at the Inn. The accommodations were lovely. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.
