“Beautiful romantic getaway inside the Lilac Room”
Reviewed 26 October 2007

My boyfriend of 7 years suprised me one friday by kidnapping me and taking me up to the Lamplight Inn for one night's stay in the Lilac room (comes with a jacuzzi tub for two, a fireplace, and a gourmet breakfast the following morning). The place was beautiful, the setting was cosy, the room was awesome, the jacuzzi was amazing, and the breakfast was to die for! Though a bit costly, it was WELL worth it for this special occasion.

  • Liked — The Bed and Breakfast was so cute and cosy and the breakfast was awesome!
  • Disliked — Small things weren't observed - dying flowers in main room, water leak stain on ceiling in room, higher priced...

Lamplight Inn is a lovely place to stay in the lower Adirondacks. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms in the house behind the inn were spacious and very comfortable. The innkeepers were extremely helpful overall. The only complaint we have is the lack of apology we received over a small but significant incident. We were locked out and the innkeepers had gone out for dinner and left a phone number for emergency contact. We called for two hours and received only an answering machine. Finally they returned home and gave us another key BUT there was never an "I'm sorry" or any other admission that maybe they should have been more available!

This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and could not have had a better experience. The owners are lovely and caring people, always willing to chat and give suggestions on what to do in the Lake George area. The property itself is charming and romantic, the room was clean and comfy. In fact, we even felt like it was our own room! Breakfast was very delicious. As you can tell, we could not have been more satisfied with the Lamplight Inn - highly recommended.

Wow, I am truly shocked at others' comments. I booked our two night mid-week stay via telephone. Linda, one of the owners, could not have been any nicer or more accomodating. When my husband and I arrived for our 10 year anniversary, we were met by Gene who guided us to our room and gave us miscellaneous info on where to eat, etc . for the night. We saw Linda and Gene when we went out to dinner and later for ice cream. They are friendly, easy-going people. This is the nicest place we have ever stayed. Everything was perfect and absolutely gorgeous. The breakfast was perfect for a health nut, as there was plenty of fresh fruit, homemade granola...and egg-white omelettes too! As far as the comments regarding the rules, the rules are completely reasonable and totally called for in today's world of law suits. We are already talking with friends to go back for a couples vacation. The Lamplight Inn is realxing, romantic, and refreshing! It is a definite MUST-STAY!!

If you are looking for a change of pace from the everyday grind, I would very much suggest a stay at this Inn, a Victorian Inn where all is spendidly taken care of. You will leave refreshed.
My wife & I recently spent a delightful 2 night stay at the Inn. Everything was perfect. We will recommend the Lamplight to our friends and plan on returning.

We had a wonderful stay at this bed and breakfast in October - we read about it in Karen Brown's book and arrived wihout a reservation. The Owner couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. We loved our room, loved the breakfast, and just appreciated the friendliness and warmth of the place. Had I not gotten sick ( a cold - not from the food!), we would have stayed longer than one night. We'll definitely go back next time we're out east.

This inn is truly a decent place to stay, and the laudatory remarks made in earlier posts are not, strictly speaking, inaccurate. The place is clean, the house is lovely, and the breakfast is good. The keyhole staircase is a must-see. Overall, my wife and I would like to say that we would stay here again, but honestly we will try our best to avoid it, if we can.

Although this will seem like heresy to the many returning guests the innkeepers obviously take as an endorsement of their hospitality, the eccentric atmosphere created by the management can leave you with a creepy feeling. Among our biggest gripes is the many "house rules" posted here and there about the house, and in the rooms. Rules advising guests not to "fool around" with the gas fireplaces or smoke in the rooms are understandable common sense, but just a small sample of the many, many other proscriptive edicts paints a rather dreary picture:
1) Do not iron on the carpeting or on the bedspread.
2) Do not take anything from the guest refrigerator that is not yours.
3) Don't take amenities from other rooms in the inn.
4) No whipped cream in the jacuzzi. (yuck!)
...and many more, each calling to mind a cautionary example of the kind of behavior evidently common among previous guests of the house. Guests are even denied leave to add a log to the wood-burning fireplace in the living room (you need to find and disturb the staff for this). What prompted the introduction of this last rule, I can only imagine.

In summary, one gets the feeling that the inkeepers have, as they said in a recent circular, "seen it all" after decades in the business, and they've started to view each new guest as a potential liability: nasty, brutish and destructive.

I fear that only new management can revive the feeling of welcome that is absent from this otherwise beautiful, potentially romantic and charming place.

  • Liked — Nice house, good breakfast.
  • Disliked — Cool disinterested hosts.
