Circa 1890. Romance is in the air at this 1890 Victorian estate that includes the restored two-bedroom Brookside Guest House and five-bedroom Carriage House on ten acres with woods and trails. Gather in the Great Room that features 12-foot beamed ceilings, chestnut wainscoting and a keyhole staircase crafted in England. Read, play chess or watch TV by the fire in the game and sitting rooms. Relax on the spacious wraparound porch rockers and swing. Many of the luxurious guest suites boast Jacuzzi tubs and gas fireplaces. Bountiful breakfasts create memorable experiences in the sunporch dining room. Swim at the beach, just one block from the inn. Winter sports and fall colors are popular seasonal activities that add to the year-round enjoyment.

Romantic and peaceful

My husband and I stayed at the Inn several years ago and have never stopped thinking about it. We've recommended it to many friends. Now we are fortunate enough to be able to look forward to again staying there ourselves. The rooms are all gorgeous and interesting. The surroundings are beautiful. It's a great place for walking.

Victorian charmer

Stayed for two nights while in the Lake George vicinity. Beautiful room, bountiful breakfasts with choices of entrees and comfortable common rooms with games, puzzles and coffemaker. Within walking distance of Lake Luzerne. Innkeepers were pleasant people who were helpful with information about the area.

Lamplight is a glow with charm

Perfect Adrirondack retreat. Our room was decorated with a bear theme, gas fire place and a hammock under the pines. Breakfast was hot and fresh blueberry pancakes with all the trimmings. Directly across from Lake Luzerne for swimming. Only 10 minutes from Lake George for family entertainment. This was a spectacular weekend getaway. Can't wait to go back for the fall season!
