The Georgian Lakeside Resort
Travel Blogs from Lake George
Ron is a member of CHANY and the entire Ryan crew was there. The conference was great and I had a great time. While ron was attending the workshops I went sightseeing by myself.I walked over 15 miles, had lunch and tasted the water in the springs.
... the way (one who has some friends in Broome (random), and an Aussie guy from Sydney, now living around the area, and a journalist for the local paper (you may have seen his wonderful article and photos on our Facebook pages?) The race: So Ayala, Miriam and Joe set off together with the 4:00 hour pace group. The pace was okay early, except they seemed to go faster up hill than they promised! Enter the hills (which happily, but not reassuringly, we'd driven on Saturday with Adam). So ...
We left Ballston Spa with lots of tears all around. We have had a wonderful time enjoying the everyday routine of the kids and being able to participate in their activities. It is very hard to leave. We spent the night in Tremont PA which is in the Appalachian Mts. When we woke up the temp was 43 degrees! We drove on down rt 81 toward our destination of Farmington Pa and Fallingwater. This stretch took us longer than anticipated because we had to cross the Appalachian and Alleghany ...
... around the lake and then we set off for the Revolutionary battlegrounds of 1777. It said that they "decided" the war's outcome as the American forces routed the British who were coming down from Montreal in order to cut the new nation in two. The Americans successes brought in the French as our allies. The Brits were led by Gen. Burgoyne and the Americans by Gen. Gates. Gen Benedict Arnold was also a key player and hero - only later to turn coat in 1880 and ...
... to see some of the local people enjoying their lovely natural attraction. Then we made our way to Stewart's for some coffee - that turned into milk shake and root beer float. We discovered the Stewart's was pretty much on Rt 9N so Otto headed north to Saranac and I headed south to Saratoga from there.
Another lovely paddle - I really enjoyed the Hudson - it felt so good to be on the water with the breeze blowing and the cool water dripping off my paddle.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Georgian Lakeside Resort Lake George
I've read the reviews of the Georgian Luxury Resort on this website and dont know what the people are talking about who gave the resort a bad review. This is the best resort that I have ever stayed at. The staff is extremely helpful and effecient, especially the girl on the maintenance staff, I think her name was Lisa. The front desk is very helpful at all times, and the patio is the perfect touch for a great vacation. The waitresses out there are among the best I have seen, very effecient and friendly at all times. The barteneder, Laurie is the best I have ever seen, I dont know how she handles that many people at once and so well. The rooms are incredible and I would definately suggest the Honeymoon Suites (which I stayed in) for anyone who wants a romantic getaway. They are absolutely beautiful with a breathtaking view, not at all like a bad porn set that one of the people in their reviews have suggested. If you get a chance to go to Lake George I would highly reccomend staying at the Georgian Luxury Resort, or you will not be getting the full experience of Lake George, and trust me you dont want to miss it!
Avoid at All Costs
I attended a wedding here over the summer. I can't believe people fall for these resorts - or so called resorts. Avoid using SPA when you don't have one. NOT
Old and musty. The carpet around the swimming pool was once a burgundy and now it's black with MOLD - who puts carpet around a swimming pool!
The rooms are vile. Everything is 100% polyester - it's impossible to get comfortable. I found everyone else's hair everywhere!
Fire the chef! Everything you eat is tasteless.
The Howard Johnsons Tiki up the road is far superior.
Spider Den !!!
Killed 3 BIG spiders during my 2 night stay !!! I wouldn't stay here again.
Hey its ok....nothing to rave about
The room was clean but small....all in all not a bad place but hey its 209 dollars per night. They call it a resort but lets be real its just another hotel.
Spider infested dump....AWFUL
I stayed here 2 years ago with my mom and sister..we were in one of their hokey rooms (they call a suite) near the pool..the room was dark and looked like a bad porn set...the awful heart tub was dirty..and the rug was disgusting! there was a gold rail searating the "bed area from the sitting area..so cheap and tasteless. when we attempted to go out on the balcony we were met with more spiders than i have EVER seen in my life! we complained..they did nothing..if my memory serves correctly, this room was close to $300 a night...insulting...dont go here! also, notice the dump they call "fine dining" on premises...the ad shows a woman and man all dressed up..what a joke, what a dump!!!!
Love the Georgian
Stayed there on two trips in summer of 2004 & were very happy with rooms, cleanliness, and service. They were doing some construction on the pool area though. That was sort of a pain. Cabana bar is a nice feature. Priced pretty good too. Overall happy there.
Nice Place to Stay
Nice Spacious Rooms. Excellent Cleaning Service. Prompt Room Service. Clean towels and sheets. Very nice office staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lake George. Clean Pool area that is open late at night. Within walking distance to town.
We just went to the hotel and ask for the room that we had for the last three years and we were told that we would have it. When we got there we were told that they gave the room away the day before. The reason we liked that room was it was bigger and I have a hard time walking and it is in the center of the resort, the parking is not that good there.
This hotel is in the same price range as all the others in the area, but the rooms are so much nicer. The pool rooms are nice because you have access to the pool all night. We have enjoyed this place every time we have stayed. The only downfall is on Holiday weekends, they don't do much to control the noise from all of the kids partying.
I'll be back in 2002
I have stayed at the Georgian for 4 nights stay for the last 5 years. The hospitality is great. The rooms are very clean and ample sized. The meals are wonderful. At the cabana bar and lounge bar, the bartenders are great and have been there for many years (Gina, Pat and Laurie are all sweathearts). This speaks well as to how they are treated by the owner, Orville Pendexter. The evening music has often been a duet of singer and keyboardist who sound like a much larger group and are loved by all who hear them. I would recommend this place highly and infact am planning another trip in June of 2002 as we speak.
