The Georgian Lakeside Resort
Travel Blogs from Lake George
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 ...
... really rock when the horses are running. Even now it's plenty busy. Beautiful historical buildings and homes, and too many tasty bars, bistros and restaurants to manage in less than a year. And the leaves haven't even changed yet. The race track is huge. Five race tracks, and 84 barns capable of holding 2000 horses. We hoped to visit the racing hall of fame, but it had been robbed the night before and was closed. Some gold trophies were taken and are probably ...
... once or twice. Not much to see on the shore - you could still hear a train and cars on the road, but there wasn't that much traffic. It was pretty idyllic.
We reached the agreed-upon take-out point (about 4.5 miles) in what seemed like no time at all. In fact, we hadn't even gotten around to having lunch yet - even though I was getting a bit hungry. Otto suggested that we try a bit farther downstream for a lunch spot - he found a sand bar with ...

hit a trail near by… until Mazy put on the brakes, ears back, trailed narrowed…
we decided it was a good time to turn around. Had a great ride and lunch at a waterfront restaurant on Lake George, NY
We are still in Ballston Spa and enjoying every minute of it. Every day is busy and we sleep well at night. My niece Fiona spent a week up here with all of us and she is a sweetheart. Emma and Fiona are two days apart in age so we had lots of thirteen year old giggling and of course shopping. We spent a day roaming around ...

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.
