  • Introduction

    Conveniently located in Lake Luzerne, The Lamplight Inn Bed and Breakfast offers you the warmth and charm of a bygone era complete with all the modern amenities discriminating travelers have come to appreciate. Set on 10 private acres, this delightful bed and breakfast consists of the Inn, the original caretaker's house (Brookside Cottage) and the Carriage House. Room choices range from quaint bedrooms with original mantels, tiles and woodwork to large spacious suites with Jacuzzi tubs, color television and remote-controlled gas fireplaces.

    Also at the main Inn, there are the common rooms where guests can gather in front of two wood-burning fireplaces for good conversation, a glass of wine, or a game of Scrabble. The large wrap-around porch is a favorite gathering spot to read, relax, or just watch the world go by on a warm summer's evening.

    When you aren't relaxing at the bed and breakfast, there are plenty of year-round activities for you to enjoy. During the summer you can swim at the beach - conveniently located one block from the Inn. In the winter, enjoy nearby downhill skiing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. And in autumn, nature takes center stage as fall foliage paints the landscape in crisp, bright colors.

    Restaurants and nightclubs abound in both Saratoga and Lake George, and during July and August, Saratoga Springs is the place to be for horse racing. Throughout the Adirondack region you can find whitewater rafting, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The area also boasts numerous museums and plays summer host to many cultural events.
