Queen of the American Lakes

A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs. Both of these facilities remain open and host thousands of summer guests. Other resorts have popped up since the 1900s because the beauty of the lake is hard to resist. Water activities draw visitors for waterskiing, swimming, boating, and fishing. Whether you only want to go to Lake George, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly United States family vacation planner.

Where to stay

Inns housed inside stately homes make for a luxurious visit to the lake. Rental cabins and cottages are popular for longer stays, but book ahead of time as these properties fill up fast in the warm months. Large resorts boast full-service facilities and social events, while bed and breakfasts and inns offer serenity and comfort for short stays.
