The Inn at Erlowest
The perfect setting for a period drama on the shores of Lake George.
If Merchant Ivory Productions ever decided to set one of its films on Lake George, The Inn at Erlowest would be an easy location choice. Housed in a turn-of-the-century stone castle --- romantic, eh? --- the property's ten guest rooms should relax even the tensest of travelers. The rooms are filled with of-the-period antiques but don't lack for modern comforts. After drawing a Jacuzzi bath using Penhaligon bath products, you can curl up for a Frette robe-enrobed nap, perhaps on a plush chair in front of your fireplace, or by the window overlooking Lake George. Such difficult choices. Of course, technology is here, too: flat-screen TVs with DVD players, Bose Wave radios and Wi-Fi. Since your hosts will happily serve you breakfast in your room, you don't even need to slip out of that robe until you're really ready. And if that moment ever comes, there's plenty to explore on the grounds and in the area. The Inn's restaurant in the Grand Ballroom serves a wide-ranging menu that should please eaters both picky and adventurous. Corporate guests are also welcomed; the property offers meeting and event facilities.
