We stumbled upon Chelka Lodge during an impromptu fall weekend trip to the Adirondacks thanks to TripAdvisor reviews. We stayed in one of the rooms and enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake between hikes. Dave and Judy were extremely helpful identifying places to eat and hikes to try!

We stayed for 5 nights in an efficiency room. The room setup was well thought out and comfortable. The view fantastic! From the porch you can see sailboats, cruise boats, along with ducks and loons, just to name a few things. We used the kitchen area for breakfast, and ate at the table with a lake view. A nice grassy... More

The lodge is away from the main town (but not too far), making it a quiet getaway directly on the lake. We've gone with a big group twice now and had an amazing experience both times. Dave and Judy were both extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. We look forward to returning!

Beautiful location! Owners are very kind and accommodating. It's a little out of the main area, but just far enough to get away from the traffic. Only negative is that the rooms don't have their own coffeemakers. However, the main building has coffee starting at 7:30 am. Just not convenient for early risers.
