“Nostalgic Charm”
Reviewed 20 February 2006

My immediate family and extended family rented 3 cabins at Carey's. We had never been to Lake George before and after calling dozens of places in early August were able to get a week at Carey's. We came to find out later that we only got that week because another family had just cancelled. We also found out that practically everybody else there knew the people who cancelled and were somewhat surprised to see us. This place is about families, some of whom we met had been coming to Carey's for 3 generations. Kids love it and parents can see almost the entire place from their front porch. We were, at first, a little surprised by all the people sitting around on their porches and hanging out. One day later we were those people. The place brings you back to a slower, easier time of life. The cabins were rustic but very clean. Honestly, the rustic part is really the charm of the place. Once you come down off of your redline lifestyle you will love this place. Bill, the owner, was super nice and helped us out with whatever we needed. We met the nicest people staying at the resort, all ready to tell their story of how they found Carey's. Our "neighbors" also recommended some great restaurants 2 minutes away in Bolton Landing. Carey's also had space for our boat at their dock and parking for our trailer right onsite. Everybody is really cool about watching out for your boat as they come in and out with their boat. It may take a day to really see why people love this place so much but if you can slow down and soak it all in I guarantee you will too. Give it a chance.

Careys Lakeside Cottages is full of lovely suprises - They have quaint fireplaces that work great and are very romantic! Linens that feel crisp, fresh and soft ...and real wool blankets. The owners run a small coffee/breakfast shop with GREAT coffee. Lots of open space and a beach if you want to swim or get some sun. You can see the majestic mountains and beautuful Lake George from the beach and are within a 2 mile car ride or 10 minute walk to the quaint little town of Bolton Landing with lots of little shops and a big food store where you can buy almost anything.
What I loved the most was that it was run by a family who knows what the word hospitality means. Their friendliness and genuine concern for our trip was the reason we will return.

Had search web sites for place to stay while visiting Lake George. After seeing Careys site with their pictures and size of beach and shoreline view, decided to give them a try. Well, the beach was very, very small and could only handle about 4 adults and a couple of children. Their picture of a sprawling seating area down by with water was just that a picture. We were also going to stay there for four nights, but had to return home one day early and informed the management of that but still had to pay for the extra night. I was not happy about that and can deal with it but wish people would be more honest about their policies and their web sites
