There are literally dozens of places to stay, both small and large, located along US Route 9 in the Lake George village area. National chains, independants, bed & breakfasts, cottages, suitesā€¦ you name it! There’s something for everyone here. From the south, take I-87 north to exit 21 to US Route 9 north. From the north, take I-87 south to exit 22 to US Route 9 south.

Places to Eat

The same holds true for restaurants in Lake George villageā€¦ you’ll find just about everything. Most are located, as with lodging, along US Route 9 in the vicinity of the village itself. You must pick up one of the many free local guidebooks to help you decide where to eat. I personally recommend Trolley Steak & Seafood and Mario’s Restaurant located right in the village. Another great spot is the Log Jam a few miles south of the village at the junction of US Route 9 and NY 149.

Places to Go

I recommend that you spend at least one evening just strolling through the shops in Lake George village. There’s an atmos[here here that you won’t soon forget. During the day, take one of the lakeshore cruises that depart from the steel pier. There are a number of packages including dinner and moonlight cruises. If the day is clear, you must take a ride up the Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway (I-87 exit 21). The 5.5 mile drive offers breathtaking views of the lake and Adirondack Mountains. Outlet shopping is also just a few miles south on US Route 9 (I-87 exit 20).
