The History of Erlowest

A Queen Anne Style Stone Castle

Once the Governor of New York’s summer home, Erlowest has been meticulously transformed into a luxurious Inn, wedding venue, and farm to table restaurant.

Entering this magnificent turn-of-the-century stone castle conjures up thoughts of guests mingling after a day on the lake, of times remembered, and the elegance of a time gone by.

Located on beautiful and historic Lake George, in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, Erlowest recalls an era when people escaped from the cities to enjoy the mountain air and pristine beauty. Your experience at the Erlowest will be an unforgettable and wonderful time.
