I called Northward Ho! for a possible one-night reservation on a busy summer weekend and Don was able to accommodate my family (the place was fully booked and only this one night was open!). Don was SO nice on the phone...I asked him numerous questions and he was so willing to give of his time. I had never been to...

My family and I are lifelong Lake George vacationers, and Northward Ho is home away from home for all of us. Through the years (over 30) there have been timea when we couldnt stay at Northward Ho and made arrangments elsewhere. None of the other places, even come close to comparing to Northward Ho. Its the cleanest establishment I have...

The owners clearly take great pride in the business, and it shows from the clean rooms, well-kept grounds, and friendly service. They have a really pretty view of the lake from their location on Huddle Bay, where their beach is protected from the bigger waves and wakes. It's close to Bolton Landing for shops, restaurants, grocery store, and kayak rentals,...

We have been visiting Lake George for years, and finally, decided to stay away from the village of Lake George a couple of years ago. Found Northward Ho then and have never looked anywhere since. It's on a beautiful quiet part of the lake that is ideal for swimming. The property is spotless! Don is a wonderful host that will...

We have been going to the Roessler's Northward Ho! cottages for many years. It feels like going home when we come back every year. Lots of the same families come back year after year and we've really enjoyed this aspect, like getting back together with family you haven't seen for a while. The family who runs this property take pride...

The Northward Ho has a retro vibe, but what's nice to know is that it's extremely clean and very well run. One look at the grounds tells you exactly what you're in for: there's hardly a blade of grass out of place. We stayed here twice last summer. Once pretty much by happenstance. The second time, we were fleeing a...

I have been coming to the Lake George area since the late 70's and early 80's with my family. There is no better place to stay than Nothward Ho! In my later years I still frequent this establishment. My most favorable review on Trip Advisor will always be Nortward Ho! When visiting Lake George, location is key. It is worth...

Spent 5 days at Northward Ho in late August. I hadn't been to the Lake George area in 25yrs. Other family members have stayed at Northward Ho in the recent past so we gave it a shot. Though not a modern resort, the rooms and grounds are very clean and well kept. More importantly, Don, Gunther and Mimi are so...

I grew up going to Lake George with my family since I was about 6 months old. My parents always stayed at Northward Ho and have known the owners (now retired and their son Don runs the motel) for 30 years. This year we took my 12 month old son there! It hasn't changed much in 30 years but is...

I have been going to Lake George and the Northward Ho for years. Each visit, I have a great time staying at the Northward Ho. The location is great - right on the water (you definitely want to stay at a place on the lake when visiting this area), in Bolton Landing, but still close to the town of Lake...
