We stayed here for a long weekend. Pet-friendly was required, and this is a great place for the dog. The cottages are spacious, very clean, and the staff friendly. The rooms are dated, TV small, and bring some LEDs, the wattage is low. However, the views are awesome, porch dining is great, and the set-back from the road provides quiet. It would be hard to find a better value. The dog raved about the furniture.

Room Tip: Pop for the 2BR cottages, it's worth it.

We rented a cottage( 2 bed rooms and kitchen, small eating space and living) and it was comfortable for 5. Nice front porch made the cottage bigger to eat. Free wifi was great even outside. Pool was very clean and access to the beach is a bit tricky to cross the street but it is worth to do free boating. very friendly stuff.

The owner and Staff at Hillview cottages in Lake George for exceptionally informative and very helpful. Our family found the cottage clean and comfortable. They allow dogs and that an added bonus. The location is close to the town and everything we wanted to do. However,the owner should warn their guests not to go exploring across the street at the Golden Sands resort because the owner is crazy. Otherwise our stay was very very nice and I would return.

After reading all the great reviews we booked our week here. I review places all the time and I am mindful of giving a low-score review. This place is nothing like these reviews advertise. Everything is old and smelly. Beds with old mattresses and rough linens. The furniture must have been cleaned with wet rags since it had this musty smell and felt gross to touch. All screens had holes so either you got bugs to deal with or deal with the bad odors from the cottage. The bathroom was brand new but other than that, everything was old and in need of replacement.
The pool was not heated. The are some old aluminum chairs with traces of mold. The mini golf area is just falling apart. The playground is old and wood in badly need of paint and waiting for a kid to get splinters all over. Just like the decks in each cottage.
We failed to realized that this place welcomes animals. Perhaps the quality of animal-friendly places is really low. Or perhaps the good reviews are bogus. Whatever the reason, this place is a solid one star motel -- don't expect anything great.
We left after a couple of days and got a room in a beautiful place down the road. Yes, we lost half of what we paid for this place but it was either that or ruin our vacation.
If you need a basic cabin in the woods with minimal accommodations, this place is for you but at over $200 a day, I expected a clean bed and a clean room.
It must be said that the staff is extremely friendly and will go out of your way to talk to you and give you advice on places to go.
