The new menu was just being overhauled for the season. It's a tremendous salute to smart locally sourced growers.

Arrival and check in was a breeze. Absolutely loved the fireplace outside with the roaring fire as we arrived. When we walked in we were greeted and told they would be with us in a few minutes while another guest was being shown to their room. Buster was great and showed us to the Montcalm Suite. Montcalm Suite: Gorgeous! Hot... More

My husband and I dined at The Inn at Erlowest on Valentine's Day. The specialty menu was superb and the service, impeccable. Dining room seating right next to the fireplace was perfect. We will definitely return and spend the night for our next visit.

I attended a wedding at Erlowest recently, and while the ballroom was beautiful and the food superb, the service was absolutely terrible. The pre-reception was in a tented area outside, but the tent was not sufficiently sealed or heated. There were long lines for drinks all evening, and not enough bartenders. The bartenders they did have did not know what... More

This was my third visit to the Inn at Erlowest, and I left convinced that it is the best restaurant in Lake George. Everything we had, the Harvest Bisque, Pappardelle, Striped Bass, and Beef Shanks, were all fantastic and cooked to perfection. We sat in a beautifully appointed room by the fireplace, which was perfect for a cold winter night.... More

Very similar to the Inn itself, the restaurant at the Inn if Erlowest offers an excellent atmosphere and charm!! We ate dinner and breakfast at the Erlowest Restaurant with both being scrumptious!

Attended a wedding over Labor Day Weekend. Beautiful setting outside on the deck overlooking the lake for cocktail hour. Apps served were not very hot and not very good - service was not of the caliber I would have expected at a place as beautiful as this. One other strange thing I noticed was the parking lot attendants. They were... More
