Let me start by saying the rooms are fine and clean BUT are certainly no steal of a deal--plus we stay in the off season. The hotel efficiency's are small but the bed is comfortable. The cabins are all being updated and are nice, the best part is having a full kitchen. There is a Large house you can rent on the hill-which is epic. Well decorated, great views and lots of bedrooms and massive open floor kitchen living room with balcony. I have stayed in all of them and have first hand direct knowledge of each. I will also say, for perspective, all neighboring properties are cheaper. I have chosen those over BL for price a few times. The competitors rooms are very comparable and clean, just dated. Although they may have less extra perks-beach boat dock things like that. There is a nice but small open field in the middle to throw a frisbee and what not. Parking is fine with well marked spots. The WIFI is great which was added in the past few years and was really needed because up until that there was no service. Blue Lagoon has a great but small beach with a boat launch right in the middle of it. The water is well marked with buoys and also has many Adirondack chairs and a tiny swing set area. They have row boats and such for you to use. They used to have a crappy ping pong table, I don't think that's been replaced. The dock is decrepit, off balance, dangerous and narrow. We (about 50+) have stayed here for about a decade straight. Always in September on what may or may not be their last weekend open for the season. We always rent the entire place out. We have never been given a discount or group rate. We have handicapped family so it is one of the only locations ON Lake George that all the cabins are on one level. For this reason we can not leave. When we first started coming we were provided a fair amount of wood for each night. For the past few years they have been extremely stingy and down right disrespectful with the offerings. They have actually given us construction debris a couple times as our wood for the night. I'm talking interior wood trim and paneling with full blown nails and stuff (pics attached). When we have approached them asking for more wood and explained we are even willing to buy it, they provide soaking wet wood that won't burn or just ignore it or give us barely any at all. They have instructed us to get fetch it ourselves from a scrap pile across the street. Does it make sense to have people carrying wood cross Route 9N on a blind corner. Not to mention the fire pit has been falling apart for years. They have done continuous upgrades to the property which is amazing but you can't help but wonder if this "bonus" weekend we provide to them doesn't help cover some of those costs. We are not looking for something for nothing. Furthermore they are so short sighted they could be profiting by providing an additional service. Again we have no choice to leave and they must know that. So hey take advantage of your biggest most consistent customer-cool!
