What Past Guests Are Saying
super stay, great location
We spent 4 nites during the week in September. The lodge was wonderful with a large porch that viewed lake george. the grounds were great and the beach was a perfect fall setting for a late afternoon glass of wine. The restaurant in the old boat house was great, very casual with friendly, down to earth staff. The whole lake george area is wonderful. If you get a chance rent a boat and explore the lake, the homes and views are great. Will absolutely return!!!
Pretty good lake views, well-maintained
The Lodges at Cresthaven are right on the lake. The rooms are well-maintained and have that cabin feel to them. The jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom is amazing! It seems like most or all of the balconies have good lake views. The only thing we had a problem with was that the dvd player and the internet router shared an outlet so we could only use one or the other. We called the office in the morning and they promptly provided an extension cord.
I stayed the weekend after labor day, so it wasn't very busy and we had most of the area to ourselves, but I can see how it might be crowded during peak season. We used the pool, beach area, canoe, and kayaks. The beach is on the small side and the restaurant blocks a good chunk of lake views. The pool was nice, but I'd urge them to invest in a hot tub for cooler days/evenings. We had a good time on the canoe, but the kayaks weren't in the best shape and seemed to take on water.
We did not go to the restaurant, but we heard their live performer on Saturday night and it seemed like a nice place to go for a drink and hang out in the evening. Lake George Village is a short drive, jog, or walk away. The Lodges seemed to be one of the nicer places to stay in the area.
First Class Lodges
We just returned from a week at Lake George & stayed at the Lodges at Cresthaven. It was excellent. Our check-in was quick and pleasant. Our cabin was clean, roomy, nicely furnished, well equipped & the view of Lake George from our front porch was simply beautiful - it was like living on a postcard. They've done a great job of combining the woodsy cabin look & feeling with all the modern conveniences you hope for in a fine resort. The cabins are set up & run in timeshare fashion - full kitchen with frig, oven & microwave, 2 bedrooms / 2 baths, living area, lots of cooking & eating utensils. Their indoor/outdoor pool area appears to be all new & the beach area is well kept. We will return. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation in a lovely setting with all the resort comforts - this is the place.

Great Place to Visit
My parents own the timeshare at the Lodges. This place is amazing!! You could not ask for a better maintained property. The views are spectacular. You are right on the lake, about 3 min from the village via automobile or 7 min via boat. The boathouse restaurant on the property is a very nice place to go for happy hour and dinner. The lodges look just like a log cabin, only have flat screens and a/C, spacious kitchen and a very nice porch to sit on. Great great place to go.
Beautiful and relaxing vacation with great scenery.
We had a beautiful lodge just above the creek and with a beautiful view of the lake. It was one of the older units since we have twice stayed in the newer ones but we really liked this one. We had the whole house which was great cause we had 2 4yr olds with us and didn't want to disturb anyone since the newer models have 2 units ontop of each other. My only dislike was the hills both to the playground which the kids really enjoyed and to the lake and was quite a trek for my husband and I since we are both 70yrs. old. Pool's temp was quite cold but felt great since we had hot weather in early June. Wouldn't recommend to people with ambulatory problems.
Beautiful View Terrible attitude
I had booked this property through a timeshare exchange with RCI eight months in advance. When I made the reservation with RCI I requested a first floor unit as my wife has problems with stairs. We had planned on meeting my daughter and her two children. When we arrived, we were told that there were no first floor units available and that RCI had not communicated this to the resort. I begged with the lady at the desk and she kept insisting that there was nothing available. Finally she searched through her computer and said that she had a unit available but that we would have to move the next day. I said okay and we went to check out the unit. When we got there it was a beautiful unit, but the only problem was that the master bedroom was on the second floor. I guess having my wife crawl up the stairs inside was better than crawling up outside where everyone could see! We went back to the office and my wife went and she again asked the desk clerk if there was anything she could do. She was in tears, when the woman finally said if she moved some other reservations around she might be able to make it work, but I would need to call in the morning after she checked with the manager. She insisted that business was picking up for the â€˜seasonâ€™ and that she didnâ€™t have much flexibility.
We finally got to our unit which was all on one floor and convenient to the playground. The next morning we were able to confirm that we would be able to stay in the unit. The unit was spacious and a modern log cabin with two bedrooms, full kitchen, two bathrooms. The washer and dryer were located in the second bathroom, which was somewhat odd. The other thing that we noticed was that there was only one closet in the entire unit which was located in the second bathroom, again very odd for an â€˜upscaleâ€™ property. It had a great porch that looked out over Lake George and was very pleasant to relax.
There is a great pool within the complex and it has both an outdoor and indoor pool. There was a very nice beach with plenty of lounge chairs which we did not use due to the weather. The onsite restaurant was only open two of the ten days we were there. We ate there one night when they had a Steak and ale dinner for two for $20 which was very good, and the steaks were very tasty, particularly for the price.
Be aware that prior to Memorial Day that practically hardly anything in Lake George is open and you have to drive a short distance to Queensbury (outlet malls) or Glen Falls to get to a restaurant or shopping. We did take the cruise on Lake George and found it very relaxing. Had a great time with my grandchildren at Great Escapes and fishing. We did find a great CrÃ¨me store called Marthaâ€™s which is across from Great Escapes on highway 9. They have eighteen different flavors of soft serve ice cream and other specialties that they serve daily. After eating their three times I still couldnâ€™t decide which was my favorite.
Getting back to Cresthaven, after the first night my wife and I decided to look around the complex to check on the occupancy. There are about forty units in the complex and it appeared that on the weekend about fifteen were occupied and that during the week we only counted five or six cars in the entire complex. The units that were directly on the lake are somehow reserved for â€˜ownersâ€™ although most of these also appeared to be vacant.
There were several minor issues with the unit, and when we had problems with the air conditioning one day when it actually got hot, the maintenance man came down and fixed it even though it took him several hours to do so. Apparently the unit had been cleaned in anticipation of the upcoming season and the coils had frozen up. But he was very nice, and I am sorry that I forgot his name. Two days before we were to leave my granddaughters wanted to take a bath in the Jacuzzi tub and we discovered a lot of hair in the tub. The next day after taking them to the Sox market in Queensbury they were wearing their new socks around the unit, and my daughter notice that their soles were very soiled. Then the day we were checking out, we were checking to make sure we had everything and my granddaughter reached under the coffee table and pulled out a pair of soiled thong bikinis which did not belong to anyone in our group. This was the final straw for my daughter and as we were checking out she finally told them about the issues.
The desk clerk went and got the manager who apologized but he also told us that we had never complained and so that they did not know what was wrong. This is housekeeping and maintenance 101 and a guest shouldnâ€™tâ€™ have to tell them that. He was kind enough to offer a comp stay for two nights and would move us to the lakefront units. My wife and I were unable to accept due to other plans, but my daughter and grandchildren were able to enjoy the extra two days, and for that I am grateful. My only question is why couldnâ€™t they have done that the first time and not lied to us about the availability.
Overall a good trip and place to visit, but would hesitate about staying at Cresthaven again. Good location, great view, poor front desk.
