Cramers Point Motel & Cottages
Ranked #54 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Reviewed 28 July 2015

UPON ARRIVAL: I was kindly greeted by the owner. She was friendly and helpful and explained everything up front. She also gave us the wifi password, which was free. Other free items were ice, canoe, and rowboat. They supply the oars and life jackets. The boats are nothing special but will get you out on the lake.
ROOMS: The rooms are small and tight, but served us well. They are very outdated, but clean enough not to be disgusted (for me at least). We had a full kitchen in our bungalow (room 19) which had everything we needed including utensils. There are no paper towels, napkins, or hand towels, so bring if you need. This is not a resort by any means, and very old, so if you are looking for "nice", look elsewhere. We used the room only to sleep and get ready to gout, and as I said in the title, it served its purpose. The bathroom was clean, but not a good place to get ready in the morning, as there was poor lighting and no fan to keep the mirror unfogged, plus we could not find an outlet in the bathroom. We had our own deck, which featured a BBQ grill (you need to buy charcoal), and a table and chairs. There is no view of the lake, or anything else for that matter. We were provided with our own parking spot. If you have guests coming you MUST register them first and you will be charged per guest (a small fee). The pool we used was clean and average small built in size. All in all I think I overpaid for this stay, at a total of 470 USD for two nights was definitely not worth the money, but It was a good alternative because I had six people and we all fit in the bungalow. So if you are traveling with a a small posse, this might work for you as well. I would not be opposed to staying here again, but I would definitely look around next time. Thanks to the owner for her courteousness.

Room Tip: If not preparing meals/BBQ, find a cheaper spot without the kitchen, pool, etc. Bring your own towel...

We found Cramer's Point quite by accident about 8 years ago. Since then we've returned to the same cabin numerous times, annually over the past 3 years, always with a great experience. Frank & Marion are exceptional people who go out of their way to make sure you're happy. Lots to do in and around the area, easy to get to, cozy place to stay. Don't overlook this place!

Went there this past weekend, 11/1/14. We rented unit#1 with the fireplace The cabin was very rustic with an awesome fireplace. All the wood you need is supplied by the owner. There are 2 separate rooms. No kitchen whick I expected. They have a weber grill right outside of the cabin. Although it was freezing at lake George and not much to do. However: that was our plan. Relax and do nothing. The fireplace heats the entire cabin. There is a baseboard heater that we didn't even bother to turn on. The shower has a small ceramic heather which does the job. If you go during the spring and summer season there is so much to do as well as places to eat. If you decide to BBQ, bring utensile's etc. etc. The lake which is beautiful is about 500ft from the cabin. I plan to visit again.

Yet again, after 30 years sporadically, and 5 years current, Cramers Point has stood the test of time..Same great owners, same great rustic accomodations with modern amenities, same great hospitality..Plenty to do on premises, and village not far. I never even think about staying anywhere else...

Booked a cabin for a family getaway over Labor Day weekend. Surprised to find that towels are not offered as the owner is concerned about overloading the septic system with too much laundry. Told us it was in the booking confirmation but we missed it and were directed several exits down the thruway where a Walmart is located (not sure why they didn't mention the local store that sold towels) Tried to pay the balance with a credit card and advised that they only allowed "walkins" to use a credit card; as we had paid in advance a check or cash was required. Walked down to our cabin where we were greeted with the overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke and ashtrays in every room. Told that they did not have non-smoking rooms and provided us with a "smoke eliminator" spray. Envelope left in the room for housekeeping tips but room was not cleaned while we were there, apparently that was for tips if we were happy with the condition of the room when we arrived.
