Lake George is a home away from home for me but this was my first stay at Chelka Lodge. My boyfriend (who was a first time visitor to the lake) and I stayed here for four nights and had a fantastic time. The lodge is located in a quiet and private bay with beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. We stayed on the ground floor of the motel and were happy with the room. Although some decor was outdated, it added to the charm of the place and we were really not in the room that much to mind. However, the bathroom was updated which was nice. The complimentary breakfast provided every morning was an added bonus and the staff was very efficient and helpful. We made use of the canoes and kayaks provided and enjoyed relaxing on the lawn by the lake. The lodge is close to Bolton Landing where we went several times to eat dinner, and also not too far from Lake George Village.
The only complaint would be that our room was located on the ground floor right under the ramp to get to the second level which got quit loud with other guests going up and down it very early in the morning and late at night.
Overall we had a great time at this beautiful place and hope to return next year!
