Yes, this is a lovely old mansion but if a view matters to you beware of the Jogues Suite. I/we travel regularly and typically pay around $200 a night; Jogues was $275 and it’s a complete ripoff. The room was very clean but there is nothing particularly outstanding about it and, as you can see, absolutely no view from any window. All in all Erlowest was a major disappointment. Breakfast was satisfactory but rather small portions. And we had to ask for sat/pepper/condiments since there were none on the table. We left with the feeling that this aspires to be an elegant, classy, top of the line establishment but misses the mark. Buyer beware!

We are so sorry you were disappointed in your stay. The Inn at Erlowest offers ten elegant old world suites. Each suite has its own personality in keeping with the integrity of the house built in 1898. Some of our suites offer spectacular views of the lake. Our Chefs serve a farm to table fresh breakfast which is included in your room rate, condiments are always available upon request. We would love for you to experience another of our suites and look forward to your return. Please call me directly and I can help you chose another suite to your specifications. Laurie Jones

From the moment I checked in until the time I left, after a four-night stay in the Howe Suite, was wonderful. The staff were gracious and efficient. Every request I made was fulfilled, from the step stool procured by Ms. Laurie Jones (Guest Services Manager), to extra wine glasses needed when my family visited provided by Ms. Marilynn McNutt (Executive Housekeeper). The gorgeous four-poster bed and the jacuzzi tub were too high for a short person, hence the step stool was necessary. The housekeepers, Robyn and others, kept the suite comfortable and clean. Breakfast was made fresh every morning, was delicious and beautifully presented - thank you Chef. Both Jason and Shanna made each breakfast extra enjoyable by their friendly service. Made it worth getting dressed early for someone who's not a morning person! The staff at the Front Desk were very hospitable and made me as well as my visitors feel very welcome - thank you Megan, Harley and Patrick! They also host parties and weddings, but the noise is minimal and all parties ended around 8pm when I was there. The stone structure is more than 100 years old, so naturally there are some cracks and chipped paint, but I saw no safety issues and I think that adds character to the Inn. Not having room service or a restaurant open every night wasn't a problem as there were plenty of places that deliver food (try Pizza Jerk for great food). Plus not having a 24-hour restaurant allowed for some peace and quiet to enjoy the surroundings. Of course, the setting right on Lake George is gorgeous, even more so than the pictures posted online. My stay at The Inn at Erlowest was worth every penny. Definitely plan to stay there each time I'm in Lake George to visit family.

Wanting to stay someplace romantic and upscale, we chose the Inn at Erlowest. The March weather was in our favor as it was 70 degrees when we arrived. Beautiful setting overlooking NYS's most spectacular lake. The Montcalm room where we stayed had a private balcony access. We enjoyed the Cheese platter and prosecco we ordered ahead of time on the balcony in the late afternoon sun. We decided to dine there and dinner was excellent. The breakfast in the morning was just enough and they have excellent coffee. It was a perfect anniversary get away.

Thank you so much for your review! We at the Erlowest strive to provide the best in hospitality, so we're glad to hear your experience speaks to our efforts.

Please do keep us in mind for any future visits to Lake George, NY. The Inn is a relaxing and romantic getaway all year round!
