Went for a weekend with friends and it was perfect! Clean and spacious with lots to offer. Gorgeous porches over looking the water. Nice little beach area and dock area. They were really nice and great to work with. We had a small issue with the jacuzzi leaking into the downstairs and they were responsive and pleasant to work with.

We have young children and have been twice. It is our favorite place to stay: the accommodations are great. It feels like being at home - full kitchen to cook, comfortable beds, and lots of space.

Went to Lake George and was recommended to stay at Sun Castle! It could not have been any better! Location and view was great, the staff were wonderful and the accommodations were clean and everything expected. I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling North visiting Lake George, you will not be disappointed.

Our townhouses are two story buildings with full kitchen, family room, 2-bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths.
