About the property

8 bedroom Lodge (sleeps 16) and 3 bedroom guest Chalet (sleeps 6) maximum 22

Originally built as a year round hunting and fishing compound, Alderbrook Lodge provides all the comforts of home. Nestled between mountains and streams, this charming 100 acre retreat, includes

it's own hiking mountain and overlooks a private ten acre stocked pond. Perfect for those who love peace and quiet. The Lodge is secluded without being inconveniently remote. It is only a few minutes drive to either Bolton Landing or Lake George. The Lodge hosts 8 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and the guesthouse, called the 'Chalet', is only a stone's throw away. The Chalet has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Alderbrook Lodge is an ideal choice for large groups or family reunions.

The Lodge - Guests are welcomed by a large center stone fireplace, which divides the Great Room into four areas. The walls are a warm knotty pine with matching beamed ceilings. A twelve point deer, in seasonal attire, oversees the activities in both living and dining areas.

The Kitchen - The kitchen is fully-equipped for large groups. Large cooking utensils, a Garland Stove with double ovens, a dishwasher, microwave, and two refrigerators all aid in effortless entertaining. Truly, a gourmet's delight!

The Dining Area - A large round table is next to an eating counter, which seats eleven. Dining on the porch is also available.

The Porch - The large wrap-around porch is a favorite gathering place. A perfect spot for games, meals, or just socializing. In any season, the VIEW of the mountains and the water is both comforting and relaxing!

Upstairs - A wide wood and bark stairway leads to Eight Bedrooms on the second floor. There are two full baths and one half bath. Sheets and towels are provided at an extra cost. A washer and dryer are on the first floor. The maximum number of guests is 16, including children.

Guest Chalet - At an additional cost, a three bedroom, two bath chalet can be rented for larger groups. Maximum for the Chalet is 6 guests, making the total for both properties. (22 people)

Barn - Available for horses.

Alderbrook Lodge offers a wide variety of winter activities. Guests can enjoy the warmth of a blazing bonfire and a hot drink, as they ice skate, snowshoe or ice fish on the lake. Others delight in sleigh riding, tobogganing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling on groomed, scenic trails. Alpine skiers can dance through the moguls at West Mt, Hickory Hill or Gore Mt. Come and watch the snowflakes fly, and relax in our undiscovered Winter Wonderland.

About Owner/Manager

We have always loved the Adirondacks and feel blessed that we found this little piece of paradise. We have 4 married children and 14 grandchildren. The 'Lodge' is a perfect gathering place for the children and the 'Chalet' is a perfect 'get away' for Gigi and Papa. It is our pleasure to share our home with friends from HomeAway.

Owner/Manager purchased this lodge in 2001

Why Owner/Manager chose Bolton Landing

After years of looking, we found Alderbrook Lodge. It is totally unique and offered us the space that we needed for both family and friends. It is rare to find a private,100 acre property, that is so close to Lake George, yet totally private. The lake is beautiful and the frosting on the cake!

What makes this lodge unique

We have made every effort to make our family and friends comfortable from the minute they walk through the door. The furniture is comfortable and the rooms are nicely decorated, but geared for children and large family gatherings. Alderbrook Lodge is the perfect place for a family reunion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were there last weekend!! We were a family of 7. Until now, my children and my friends are still talking about going back. My 3 girls thought that it would be nice to stay there forever! They had their first kayaking and boating experience there and they LOVED it! We had total privacy and so much freedom to do anything we want to do with the water, in and out of the house. My husband and his friends (husbands of my female friends ) went biking around the area. We didn't even have to go elsewhere to have fun because it was already so much fun being in Alderbrook Lodge. We liked the fact that we had the water and the boats to ourselves and we didn't have to worry about paying it by the hour. The bonfires and our night swims were something we haven't done in other places we've stayed in our previous vacations. Being able to commune with nature was such a relief from the stressful life we have in the city. The calmness of the water and the woods with all its different natural sounds were so contagious. We honestly didn't want to go home. The long drive from Virginia was worth it! Lynn and Ed were such gracious owners. Thank you!! again so much for sharing your property with us and contributing to another unforgettable weekend getaway. -- Jun & Jovieh (from Alexandria, VA)

Great place - as advertised

This is a great lodge at a great location. Very nice pond for swimming and fishing. The lodge was as advertised - plenty of room, clean, with a great kitchen suitable for a large group. The owners were very friendly and accommodating.

Absolutely Perfect Adirondack Retreat For All Ages

  • 5 of 5

Family Reunion could not have been hosted at a better spot! This lodge and property offers privacy combined with close proximity to amazing adventures for all ages. The lodge itself provides areas for gatherings and sanctuary. There is no property around Lake George which offers the same amenities. The owners were close by for answers and solutions without imposing and so very, very friendly! Activities of attendees included Mohican Cruise on Lake George, brewery and winery tours, exploring Fort Ticonderoga, "Date Night" at the Sagamore Hotel, marathon training, mountain climbing, band concerts, family game nights, camp fires, swimming, canoeing, kayacking, relaxing and lots of rejuvenation! We will definitely return!!

Beautiful private gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's third summer staying for a week at Alderbrook Lodge. We range in age from 2 years to 60+ and everyone finds the location and accommodations to be first-rate. The sandy beach is perfect for the little kids, and the teenagers enjoyed swimming in the lake and diving from the swim platform. There is enough room in the big cabin for large family dinners, games, and hanging out. The Chalet is perfect for guests who need a more private and relaxing stay. There is a nice campfire area. Our one request would be adding a few newer water toys to the collection. The row boat has a leak, one of the kayaks has a broken seat and the paddle boats are broken. We love Alderbrook Lodge and plan to visit again next summer!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you are happy with our property and please, in the future, tell us of the broken items so we can repair them, as soon as possible. As for a new water toy, I have had my eye on something I know the children will enjoy. Come back and see our new addition! In appreciation, Lynn

Perfect location for a private gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at the Alderbrook Lodge. I was with a good sized group (16 people) of friends and family - we rented both the main house and the chalet across the street. It was perfect. The location is beautiful and incredibly private. The houses are charming and cozy and in very good clean condition. Everyone had a great time. Thanks again!

Incredible Property

  • 5 of 5

Fourteen of us stayed at the Lodge for three days this past summer and it was more than I could have imagined. The property is truly a special place being so remote and on its own pond which was far nicer than imagined. Even with a large group it was easy to take a boat or kayak out and spend some time in peace and quiet. The owners were very accommodating and ensured that we had a wonderful experience. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an outdoorsy vacation in very close proximity to Lake George without the crowds.
