A castle overlooking Lake George with elegant dining and guest rooms. The view is spectacular - a delicious breakfast on the veranda overlooking the water was incredibly special. Pricey but worth it - I highly recommend it for a special occasion.

We booked one of the townhouses for my sister's wedding. We were stunned at the beauty, cleanliness, and comfort of the townhouse. We are a family of five (three children 9, 6, and 4).
