We stayed in the Saratoga Suite in the Carriage House over labour day weekend. My partner surprised me with this mini-vacation last-minute and I was absolutely floored over by the Lamplight Inn. We have stayed at many, many B&Bs, and I definitely would put the Lamplight in that special category of "the total package".
The innkeepers take so much attention to detail in everything they do. Large selection of teas, coffees available at all times. Breakfast is a la carte plus a mini buffet of fruits and cereals. Large selection of board games in the living room of the main house. A lovely "gift shop" (basically some beautiful antique cabinets filled with all kinds of interesting trinkets). Binders with menus for all the nearby restaurants and recommendations and reviews. In the Carriage House, a fridge in the main area to cool your wine or store leftovers, snacks and drinks available on the honour system, corkscrews waiting to be used...
Our room was incredible. First, it was gigantic. A king-sized bed, a sitting area, a gas fireplace and an immense two-person jacuzzi (we also had a regular shower-tub in our bathroom... just in case two people wanted to take baths separately??). It was charming yet luxurious and very romantic. Would definitely recommend it for those celebrating a special occasion (there are ice buckets in the room (and ice in the entrance of the Carriage House!) which we really appreciated being white wine drinkers).
The property is gorgeous, and is again impeccably maintained. Very easy to walk to the river for a leisurely stroll, or to the beach area for a swim in Lake Luzerne. We drove several times to the Lake George area which, although it's a lot of fun, is filled with overpriced, grungy accommodations. The Lamplight is a fantastic alternative: you stay in a charming B&B with fabulous innkeepers and fabulous breakfast, yet you can easily access the kitsch of Lake George. Next time we visit Lake George, we will be returning to stay here.
