One look at this sparkling blue lake in the Adironacks and it’s easy to see why Lake George is called the Queen of American Lakes. Tourism and outdoor recreation keep this area buzzing all year round, from summer water sports to winter snow sports. A tangle of streets along the waterfront provide all the amenities and lodging you need, while a slew of fun summer amusement parks and year-round outlet shopping ensure everyone has fun at upstate New York’s hugely popular Lake George.
Hotels in Lake George
An extensive selection of affordable family motels, mid-range chain hotels, and upscale resorts are available within walking distance of Lake George and its main drag. As a premier tourist destination, Lake George caters to families at the Six Flags Great Escape Lodge and couples on a romantic getaway at the chic Fern Lodge down the road in Chestertown.
Where to stay
Most visitors prefer to stay around the section of Lake George’s shore where most of the amenities and attractions are clustered. The chain hotels here are very good, especially the Holiday Inn Lake George Turf.
Queensbury, Glens Falls, is another great corner of the lake for accommodations, with some real charmers like the historic Glens Falls Inn that offers a more intimate ambiance.
