Often called the Queen of American Lakes, Lake George was aptly described by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to his daughter in 1791...
“Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw; formed by a contour of mountains into a basin... finely interspersed with islands, its water limpid as crystal, and the mountain sides covered with rich groves... down to the water-edge: here and there precipices of rock to checker the scene and save it from monotony.”
The Georgian Resort is located right in Lake George Village and right on Lake George. The Georgian has 159 rooms and suites, a spectacular outdoor pool, patio and lake front Cabana Bar. Newly remodeled guest rooms at the Georgian range from Courtyard rooms to lake view Suites and Poolside rooms. From the Georgian patio and waterfront the view is to the East shore of Lake George, with lake views, mountains and forested shores.
Guests visiting Lake George have an endless choice for outdoor activities and attractions. Lake Cruises vary from one hour trips on the paddlewheel steamer Minne-Ha-Ha (great for kids), to a 4 hour full lake cruise with lunch, dinner and speciality cruises for fireworks and music. There is also an educational cruise with The Lake George Association – The Lake George Floating Classroom - hands-on aquatic learning for all ages. Kids love Lake George! Probably because Lake George and The Georgian are just 5 miles from the Six Flags Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom, a spectacular Summer amusement and water park! Horseback riding at nearby stables, lazy river tubing, canoe trips, golf on championship courses, and American History attractions at Fort William Henry and Fort Ticonderoga, all add up to a memorable summer vacation.
A Lake George Vacation can be as active or as relaxing as you choose. Some guests spend their whole vacation relaxing on the beach or patio with their favorite Summer novel. On Lake George itself guests enjoy boat rentals, kayak and stand-up paddleboard rentals, parasailing and fishing charters. Thanks to dependable dam releases two nearby rivers offer whitewater rafting trips – 7 days a week on The Sacandaga River (12 miles away) and Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday on the Upper Hudson River (30 min. drive). GeorgianResort.com is a leading online resource for activity and attraction information with outfitter directories, videos, and a Lake George area hiking guide including maps downloadable to your phone.
