I had dinner at Erlowest with my husband this past Saturday night, partly because it sounded excellent but also because there was nothing else open in the area since it is still considered the off season in Lake George. I was very happy that it worked out this way though and we would love to dine here again if we're... More

When it comes to gourmet worth your time and money, this is the real deal. So often gourmet fine dining is “fussy” and more show than food but that is NOT the case at the Inn at Erlowest. This is the way gourmet fine dining should be. The portions were perfect, the preparations and presentation were flawless, and the flavors... More

Arrival and check in was a breeze. Absolutely loved the fireplace outside with the roaring fire as we arrived.

Montcalm Suite: Gorgeous! Hot... More

I attended a wedding at Erlowest recently, and while the ballroom was beautiful and the food superb, the service was absolutely terrible. The pre-reception was in a tented area outside, but the tent was not sufficiently sealed or heated. There were long lines for drinks all evening, and not enough bartenders. The bartenders they did have did not know what... More

This was my third visit to the Inn at Erlowest, and I left convinced that it is the best restaurant in Lake George. Everything we had, the Harvest Bisque, Pappardelle, Striped Bass, and Beef Shanks, were all fantastic and cooked to perfection.
