Dunham's Bay Resort one of Lake George’s best-kept secrets, is on the eastern side of the lake, offers picturesque views of Lake George, and also has a superb restaurant on-site that specializes in a locally sourced, seasonal menu.

The cabins include a kitchen, living area, and everything you need for a relaxing stay.

Guests of all ages can take advantage of resort amenities like an indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, the family can gather around the fire pit, and there are also outdoor charcoal grills, a horseshoe pit, and a kids play area. Enjoy access to a private beach just across the street.

Stay in the Heart of the Village at Fort William Henry

Many hear Fort William Henry and think "historic museum" - and they'd be right. But, it’s also a hotel and conference center that comprises nearly 200 spacious rooms and suites. Everyone in the family will love the unobstructed view of the lake.

Kids will enjoy the indoor pool and Olympic-size outdoor pool; Mom and Dad must make use of the sauna and Jacuzzi. There are top-notch restaurants on site, and you’ll be within walking distance of all the Village has to offer, where you’ll find more restaurants and attractions for all ages.

When looking for lodging for a family reunion, it can be tough to find something in everyone’s price range, but Fort William Henry offers it all: luxury accommodations at the Grand Hotel, mid-range rooms and suites at Premium East, and budget-friendly rooms at Standard West.
