8 Best Hotels With A View of the Lake or Mountains
One of the biggest perks of vacationing in the Lake George area is waking up to beautiful views of the lake and surrounding Adirondack Mountains! The next time you're deciding which hotel to stay at, make sure to consider these picture perfect destinations.
Located on Lake George in Bolton Landing, The Sagamore offers a stunning view of the lake and nearby islands. This historic hotel and resort provides all the amenities you could ever dream of, including a golf course and other sports activities, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a 10,000-square-foot outdoor pool (which also overlooks Lake George!) and more.
When you're ready for a delicious meal, The Sagamore has award-winning restaurants right on-site. Check out the Lakehouse, an open-air restaurant positioned right next to the lake, and the Pavilion, which provides incredible lakeside patio dining.
Every room at the Lakefront Terrace Resort has a balcony or patio that looks right out onto the lake or their picturesque courtyard, and some are just steps away from the beach. You can also take advantage of gorgeous views on one of their multiple outdoor terraces with patios. They aren't called the Lakefront Terrace Resort for nothing!
At the beach, take in the lake views while making use of their lounge chairs, kayaks, and paddleboats. There's also an outdoor fireplace, several grills, a kid's playground, and more amenities to enjoy as you take in the scenery.
When it comes to scenic sights, you can really get a panoramic view from a rooftop, and there's no better place to do this than at the Rooftop Cabana Bar at Surfside on the Lake. This 3,000-square-foot rooftop terrace offers gorgeous views of the lake, the mountains, and the hotel's private beach.
They serve lunch and dinner here, or you can just relax with your favorite drink. A retractable roof makes this an even more enjoyable experience, so you can sit in the sun or get out of the heat.
Surfside is always undergoing upgrades and renovations, so you can be assured your rooms and all the amenities are top notch for when you can drag yourself away from the rooftop bar.
Located in the heart of Lake George Village, The Georgian Lakeside Resort offers views of the lake from their gorgeous pool, and they have lakeview suites available as well. Or, take advantage of the beautiful scenery of Lake George right on their private beach; they also provide kayaks and pedal boats for guests to use.
A bar at the pool and a restaurant on site means you can take in the views while enjoying a drink or a meal.
