It was my first time here but I will be back! The cottages and grounds were impeccably clean, the staff was super friendly and accommodating! Tip: although your cabin sleeps 6 people, there aren't enough plates for all and there are no pans so bring your own.

There's way too many guests for the narrow strip of beach so we never had chairs & barely had sand. Inside our cabin the mattresses were terrible and the other furniture had been worn out. These owners need to reinvest in this cash cow. We won't be going back.

We stay here a couple of times a year and we absolutely love it, great views, great beach, great staff and plenty of recreation for the entire family, a must if you have family. Horseback riding across the street and only a 10 min drive to village.

Our tight knit circle of girlfriends get away one weekend a year together. We have enlarged over the years and enjoy the spaciousness, cleanliness, hospitality, and grounds of the Depe Dene! We enjoy seeing the same families every year as well. Can't wait until The next one!!!

Hi,
We are a family of 6 from Manhattan, NY.
We went to Depe Dene twice last year.
1st after my wife give birth to our 3rd child in June. She wanted to escape busy city for few days, with new born. Forget about every day life, crazy work hour... crowd... you know what I mean if you are from the big city. It was a long drive and we arrived in the middle of the night. Next morning feeling was like I was in the middle of my dream land. Amazing view of the lake. Temperature and clean air. First stream of the sun dancing on a water... I can't express how beautiful was every single detail around me. STUNNING!!!
Ever since that day we wanted to go back.
2nd time it was in August. We rented a 3 bedroom house right on a lake and our friends family joined us as well.
Pool, was an amazing experience. Loved it.
We don't like gaming machines in general, so we didn't even try it. Why would we?
We had a charcoal grill, gas grill, wood fired grill, raw boat, paddling boat, kayak, canoes. I brought my jetski.
Hotel was providing beach fire every night. My kids first time tried real marshmallows, real charcoal baked potatoes, sweet corn... They absolutely loved my guitar playing by the fire on a beach!!!
3rd time we went at the end of summer season. Same experience. STUNNING!
4th time we went first weekend of February for the winter season on Lake George. Depe Dene was closed but there was someone at the front desk anyway. She was very helpful to find us a place to stay. So we canceled our reservation in Lake George town and followed her advice.
I'd highly recommend.

My friends and I stayed at Depe Dene this past 4th of July. We were originally booked at another place, but when we showed up the place was a dump! We drove around looking for another place to stay and doing that the weekend of July 4th was not easy. We found Depe Dene by just driving by and decided to just go in to see if anything would be available. Zandy, the nicest and best manager ever, saw how desperate we were to leave the dump motel. He told us they were booked, but said "let me see what I can do for you girls.". He chatted with someone in the back and was able to get us a cabin to stay in for the weekend, and it was extremely affordable. The cabin was a descent size and very clean. The access to the beach and all the fun beach activities was so much fun and so relaxing. We had planned to go out to dinner in town that weekend, but had so much fun we never left the sight, cooking at our grill at the cabin and chatting with other guests at the resort.

I would HIGHLY recommend Depe Dene to anyone who is interested in a reasonable, fun, clean place to stay while in Lake George. We have already booked our 4th of July 2014 rooms and are now planning on making it an annual get together with our friends.

We stayed at Depe Dene during this recent labor day weekend and found their facilities to be excellent. We were a group of 4 and rented a cottage in the family area which was quieter than the other areas. There were other options for younger couples and families with kids close to the Lake and some play grounds & a heated pool. Lake George itself has many things to offer for people of all age groups. My parents experienced para-sailing. We also went on a boat ride around the lake learning more about the natural beauty and history of some of the popular real estate in that area. There were plenty of restaurants and the fireworks during the evening were a big crowd puller. I would definitely recommend Depe Dene Resort and Lake George to anyone looking for a short trip close to New York (4-5 hours drive towards Montreal).
