During this memorial weekend, we wanted to visit Lake george.
Most of the hotels and resorts were booked or charging
Then we came across Depe Dene 2 days before the trip.
Called up Anna and was pleasantly surprised to find
that they had occupancy and the rates were so reasonable
for such a beautiful location.
Booked the Beach Suite 42 ($180/night) which could
house 4 adults & 2 kids. Off we went on Saturday morning,
and reached earlier than check in time.
Its on the lakeshore drive along with many other resorts.
For the location alone , it should be priced higher. Its such a beautiful setting.
Anna warmily welcomed us and handed over the keys.
Beach suite itself was located right off the lake. You get the lake view
from the drawing room. The wooden cabin adds charm to your stay.
comfortable rooms and small bath constitutes the rest of suite.
They fixed the only glitch of hot water on the same day.
Had a great time there.Breath taking views and so near to the lake george village.
It has a nearby saddle where the kids and adults could ride horses.
Kayak and pedal boats are available free of cost in Depe Dene.
We could Barbecue at our suite on a serene evening with mist adding beauty to the place.
Highlight of the stay : Speed Boat ride ($100/hr) in the lake . Its a steal for the money.
Stunning boat which can easily fit in 10 adults .In Mike you will find an amazing driver. Dont ever miss that ride.
If you dont own a boat, go for this ride in Depe Dene.
But for the garbage pickup( which they probably do once in 2 days),there was literally nothing to complain about our stay in Depe Dene.
Your family will love the stay here. Thanks to Anna , We are defintely coming back!
