“wonderful accommodations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

This is our first time staying with Suzanne and George and we are TOTALLY SPOILED.
The accommodations are lovely, clean and well appointed. The location is perfect, right in Lake George village, within walking distance to everything. Thank you, Suzanne and George, for a terrific weekend. Looking forward to visiting you again soon. Paul and Nancy.

My husband, grandaughter and I spent yet another lovely weekend at the lake in one of the cabins. Which as usual was very clean and ready for us when we got there. You will find no people more dedicated, friendly, and proud of the place they own. W e will be heading back up in 2 weeks to spend anohther wonderful weekend up there but this time we will be bringing along my brother, his wife and my mom. We expect to have a wonderful time and know that we will because the place we are stayin g at are beautiful places and Suzanne and George make us feel like family and right a t home. Thanks to them for being such special freinds.........J,K,&B

This is our 4th family vacation to Lake George but the first time we stayed with George and Suzanne. They are very, very friendly and accommodating. We stayed 4 nites in one of the cabins. We appreciated being located in the Village, a few minutes walk from the sights, the beach, restaurants, shopping, mini-golf and the arcades. We walked to all these places each day and that made for a low-key, cozy, very enjoyable family experience. We enjoyed the rustic setting in the Village. We plan to lodge with George and Suzanne again on our next visit to Lake George.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the privacy of our own cabin.

The Balsams offered us the total Lake George experience. Its rustic setting and spacious and spotless cabins truly keep us coming back year after year. George and Suzanne make you feel like family. I can't imagine staying anywhere else and would recommend The Balsams to anyone looking for the ideal Adirondack vacation. The Balsams is our home away from home.

We have been coming to the Balsam for the past 5 years and we love it. George and Suzanne are wonderful hosts who can't do enough for you. Convenient to all sights in the Lake George area. Pricing is reasonable, rooms are comfortable, easy access to the beach. It is also very pet friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms have refrigerators and microwaves as well as morning coffee in the office.
