A GREAT place to stay. This was my wife and I's first stay and the location was perfect, quiet but not boring with a nice swimming area and beautiful grounds, nice deck and good rooms. Nice breakfast with an assortment of cereals, fresh strawberries, coffee, juice, fresh muffins and scones. Relaxed and quiet but not boring with lots to do...

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. As you mentioned, we are fortunate to have such as great location on the lake. Our bay is calm enough to enjoy our "flotilla" of non-motorized boats. Our new deck is very popular and provides a stunning view of the lake. We wish we could eliminate all mosquitoes from the...

We were first time guests at the Chelka Lodge, and the owners did not disappoint. As soon as we arrived, we took note of the attention to detail, and the clean, well-appointed condition of our room. The property was well-maintained and very user friendly, in terms of the amenities and set up. We loved the paddle board and kayaks, and...

At the last minute we decided to take a trip just before the Fourth of July weekend. We planned to book reservations for Tuesday night at one town, then Wednesday night in a different town and drive on and try another location for Thursday. Wednesday night we wanted to stay at Lake George but not in downtown with the crowds....

outstanding location, great owners. Rooms are oversized, beds are comfortable. If you have a boat they have a very quite bay and docks. Stayed here prior to them serving breakfast, but there's a great deck that looks right out to the lake

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our lakefront efficiencies, which were built in 2012, are quite popular, both for their amenities and their lakefront location. Our kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and rowboats are also very popular with our guests. We sincerely appreciate having you as our guests and hope to see you again!

Our visit to Chelka Lodge was short but I wished we could've stayed longer. This family owned lodge is small but a true gem. Right on Lake Goerge, with water activities included and a beautiful and clean lawn made for a relaxing stay. The rooms are clean and staff helpful and friendly. We can't wait to visit again!
