We took a last minute vacation for the weekend and we were very happy that we weren't staying for a full week. We booked a two double bed room but would have preferred a queen or king room so we could've shared a bed. They only had single double beds available. Way too small for us to share. The shower...

While we had a nice time here, the rooms are extremely outdated. The carpet was old, the beds were terrible and I doubt the bathroom had ever been renovated. Housekeeping here means they take your dirty towels and give you clean ones. Tom was extremely helpful and always very pleasant.

While attending to family business in Albany, we decided to sneak off to Lake George at the last minute. After several unsuccessful attempts to find a place to stay, we were fortunate to find the Amber Lantern. Our Cottage was cozy and clean, and Tom (the Owner) went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed...

We visited with about 7 other couples when the hotel / cottages we wanted were already booked. The owners of the first hotel suggested this place due to its proximity to them. The pictures online were quaint, but when you first arrive, you'll realize that is where the quaintness ends. The owner was very nice, the units were generally clean,...

The Amber Lantern is an old-school Adirondack resort, and it appears not much, if anything, has changed since it was built (1930s?). Nine cabins are situated close together, among mature trees and the property is attractively landscaped and clean. There’s a pool that we made use of, with lots of lounge chairs. It was rather small and not very kid-friendly...

My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights at Amber Lantern where Tom and his family treated us very nice! They were available for anything we needed. We're not high maintenance so we didn't need to ask for anything other than general area directions. The place was very clean and the owner, Tom, is very up-front with what he offers. Definitely...

I just want to say that I would definitely refer the Amber Lantern, I loved the room, was very clean and well kept, loved the rustic look & the service from the owner Tom was great. So if anybody needs a nice place to stay for a very reasonable price, this is the place to go!! I know I will...
