Reviewed 18 July 2012

The property is beautiful and you can see the lake from almost every spot. We had 8 in our group. The manager- Debbie, is incredibly devoted to making sure you have a great stay. We were in side by side town homes. Very nice inside and comfortable beds (important to me:). Pretty sound proof too- important with two young boys. Big Jacuzzi tub in the master. No one beneath or above you. Pool was great fun- has a slide for the kids. Kayaks available for use at anytime- loved that. Awesome patio with fireplace at the Inn. Really felt that it was the perfect balance for LG- not cheesy touristy place, but not pretentious either. Relaxing and friendly. Wifi. Very happy with our stay!

Room Tip: There were bungalow type places that were closer to the water- but I think the townhomes are the new...

This is the fourth vacation in Lake George and this last time was fabulous staying at the Sun Castle. The last three years before this we stayed at the Boulders Resort witch is a nice place but they have no rules. Every year we went their the same rude people inviting relatives or friends to crash at other tenants expense using all the parking. Staying at the Boulders was like going on vacation and getting ripped off as far as not getting what you paid for at all. Now the Sun Castle Resort I felt like I got my moneys worth and then some. This resort is well kept and very organized. The townhouse we stayed at was very comfortable and yes the beds are very comfortable as well. I cant wait to go back.

From the moment we arrived (2 couples) until we left a week later the Manager, Debbie was right on top of our every request and need. A phone call or trip to the office brought immediate satisfaction for any request. We stayed in townhouse unit 8A, and just loved the unit, the location, the view, the handy parking, just everything. The resort is centrally located to any activity we chose, from horseback riding to river tubing to fine dining to shopping and antiquing and to the lake itself, we will definitely be back next year. The pool was very clean, and although it can be heated this wasn't necessary during the first week of July. The Monday evening barbecue was a pleasant surprise that gave us a break from cooking or going out to eat, and gave us the opportunity to meet some new friends. Thank you Debbie!

If you are looking for all the conforts of home with a great views of Lake George, then the Sun Castle resort is the place.

We have been coming to Sun Castle for the last 6 years and every year the owners and the staff step up their game to make our stay a memorable one.

The resort if perfectly located, within a short drive to the Lake George Village and about 15 minutes to Lake Bolton.

A great added bonus is having the Inn at the Erlowest restaurant on premises. Now that our kids are older, we leave our kids to watch a movie and take the 3 minute walk for a date night.

We truly appreciate the owners, Debbie and the staff and how they make sure everything is absolutely spotless when we arrive, very accomodating if we need anything.

We tell our friends we love the Sun Castle because is like picking up our home and moving it to Lake George.

Room Tip: We prefer the townhomes with easier parking access.

My family and I stayed recently for a multi-family reunion. We rented a total of 6 condos/villas and had more than enough room for all. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us; setting up and taking down tables and chairs for two outdoor dinner events, bringing extra cooking/serving dishes and generally providing everything we asked for.
An earlier reviewer mentioned that the manager seems to work 24/7. That does indeed seem to be the case, but the rest of the staff was just as service-oriented and helpful.
The property is beautiful with outstanding views of the lake. It is perfectly located in between Lake George Village and Bolton Landing. The condos are spacious, clean and comfortable.
If I had one comment to make where there is room for improvement, it would be that the kitchens are rather sparsely supplied. Our unit did not have a bottle opener or any cooking knives. When mentioned to staff, they were promptly supplied, however.
To Deb and staff, thank you for a wonderful week!
