Wonderful for families, couples and solo!! Great food for breakfast and dinner. Children activities, sailing, and picnics on Canoe Island. Great Hosts and staff. Lunch on the deck, this place is very special.

Canoe Island Lodge is expensive but seems to be worth it. The landscape is nice and the property is kept nicely as well. It isn't trashy here compared to other hotels on Lake George. The rooms are outdated but they are clean and comfortable which are the two most important aspects, I believe. Our room had the possibility of connecting...

Amazing place for friends and family. The staff is so friendly-from the boat boys, the housekeeping and waitstaff, they were so fun, friendly and great with kids and adults-Sarah, Sam, Russell, Brian, Joe, Nora, Brook, Greg, and countless others. This was our first time visiting and we made friends for life. Talent show the last night was the highlight of...

We just finished our first visit to Canoe Island Lodge with our two toddlers and it was an amazing family vacation. Only wish we would have planned to stay longer. Many of the families staying at the resort return year after year and we can understand why. The owners are involved in every single detail to make sure there is...

Posted a review of CIL the first time we came, and right now in our 4th year here, and this place STILL ROCKS! Kids can't wait to come back each year and I look forward to the relaxing week. Same families return this time too so always like a little reunion... Such a friendly inviting atmosphere. Staff is amazing, food...

Was there for a 3 day business meeting. Beautiful place on Lake George. Grounds manicured and room large and clean. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful views, sand beach and available sailboat & pontoon boat rides. Great place for a family vacation.

My family has been coming here for well other 25 years - before I was born! CIL has never disappointed and the surrounding areas provide just enough entertainment to provide a relaxing, but never boring, summer vacation. Spend the days on the shore, hiking the trails, or head to Diamond Point/Bolton Landing for a day of shopping and arcade games....

Friendly, warm and inviting. You'll feel it as soon as you arrive. We actually had the run-of-the-house as we were attending a meeting prior to the summer season. Staff was attentive and helpful. I believe meals were included and they were adequate. Rooms were clean and spacious. I actually overlooked the lake from a second level 1 bedroom. Unfortunately, it...

My family began their Canoe Island Lodge tradition over 35 years ago. They started coming because it was all-inclusive. My mother couldn't think of a better place to bring five kids. No having to figure out where to go for food for every meal. The bell rings, and we all process up to the lodge. No having to figure out...
