We had stayed at several places on Lake George in the 80s and 90s but never at the same place twice due to dissatisfaction. Then somehow we were lucky enough to find Chelka Lodge and have come back for at least 10 years each summer. Dave and Judy (the owners for at least the least ten years) have made us feel like we have a home on Lake George. Sophie ( the most recent Lab) sat with me for a while and seemed to know us since we met her as a Puppy two years ago. Its always a pleasure watching the dogs enjoy swimming in the lake as much as we do. I wasn't surprised to see Chelka Lodge recommended in the Sunday Travel section of the NY Times a couple of years ago. It did make me worry that they would fill up very quickly for the summer. Thus when the annual Chelka Lodge newsletter comes in January, we decide immediately what our plans on for the summer and send our reservation in. The wonderful breakfast, convenient location, ample supply of beach front boats to borrow, very comfortable rooms, and unmatched Lake George views all combine for the most wonderful vacation anybody can have. We always look forward to the improvements Dave and Judy make on the property each year.
