We'll Be Back

5 on February 03, 2015

We didn't want to leave. The room was warm, even on a bitter cold night, and service was excellent. Gene and Linda provided just the right balance of attention and privacy for our 30th anniversary weekend. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, no need for lunch. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. We left looking for an excuse to come back soon.

Wonderful Weekend Away

5 on January 20, 2015

My girlfriend and I spent a weekend at the Lamplight Inn and we stayed in the Woodside Romance Suite and were not disappointed. The room was clean and comfortable; the food was wonderful; and, the owners and their employees were helpful and professional and always had a smile. The room was quiet and even when there were several other occupants in the carriage house it felt private and helped make our weekend romantic. The jacuzzi tub in the room and the fireplace didn't hurt either.

My husband and I stayed in the guest house in back for two last weekend. It was a cold weekend but the in room fireplace kept us toasty and comfortable. The jacuzzi tub for two was also a nice treat. The inn keepers and staff were extrordinarily pleasant and helpful. Gene is a great cook, breakfast was the best I have had in any bed and breakfast thus far, and hotel for that matter! Linda makes all the breads and they are fabulous along with homemade granola and fresh fruit salad. We will definitely be back! This place will not disappoint you¿¿

Excellent Getaway B&B in the Adirondacks!

Stayed here for July 4th weekend, and it was exceptional! Beautifully appointed, meticulously maintained, wonderful breakfasts (specials and a menu selection) with waitstaff employees, very charming. Walk to swim beach. Also highly recommend UpRiver Cafe just around the corner for dining on the River.

Perfect Getaway

In 2012, my husband surprised me with a weekend getaway at this Inn as I have never experienced an inn stay before. We loved it! Gene and Linda were wonderful and the service between them and their staff were outstanding. So very relaxing. This year, we went back as a birthday present to my husband as I felt he deserved the best. Lamplight Inn is the best and I am looking forward to our next getaway there! :)

Perfect Winter Weekend Getaway

4.6 on February 11, 2014

My fiancée and I took a long weekend off and stayed here in early February. The innkeepers were some of the friendliest we've met and made our stay comfortable and relaxing. The inn itself is beautiful, and the suite we had was ample and well-maintained. We would definitely stay again!

Gene and Linda are great!

Staying in the Lamplight inn is like staying at close friend's home. Gene and Linda will make you remember what good service is. Many thanks and best wishes!

Our Favorite B & B

5 on October 25, 2013

Our visits to the Lamplight in are always special and wonderful. Linda, Gene, Sally and Jennifer are the most congenial hosts and the breakfast is worth the cost all by itself! We've stayed in the French Mountain room twice and find it to be the most comfortable, warm and friendly room experience of our entire vacation. We will definitely come back, time and time again.

Lamplight Inn is AMAZING

5 on October 13, 2013

We took our Honeymoon at the Lamplight Inn. We stayed in the Woodside Romance Suite and were floored with how cozy, romantic and clean the room was. We loved the Jacuzzi in our room and the fireplace only added to the romance. The owners make sure that you feel as if you are the only people at the inn and are so sweet. The breakfast was fantastic each morning and we loved how the owner came out and greeted guests. We are going back year after year for our anniversary!

Fall Getaway!

5 on October 08, 2013

We went the first week of October, and this was our first B&B excursion and I wanted to make sure it was done right. I'm extremely thankful that I found the Lamplight Inn. Me and my girlfriend love the Adirondacks and are a bit on the picky side when it comes to food and lodging. The Lamplight Inn exceeded all of our hopes and wishes as Linda and Gene were warm and welcoming. Fantastic detail throughout the house, and breakfast every morning was more then what either of us could of asked for. You must order the waffle's or french toast and take advantage of everything else on the menu!! We stayed in the mountain room and I think we're going to make a tradition of continued stays in this room. The room is a bit more private then the others and has beautiful natural light cascading through every morning. We made a few day trips to Lake George and hiked up Prospect Mountain. We also had dinner at a few great places in Lake George. When we got back to Lamplight there would be little snacks and coffee available, which is a real nice touch. It was truly a fantastic few days at the Lamplight and I look forward to going back.
