Canoe Island Lodge Policies

Our private vacation resort in the Adirondack Mountains of New York state offers a variety of great resort accommodations, dining, and activities that include sailing, hiking, fishing, and water skiing on Lake George. Guest policies are listed below…we look forward to having you as a guest at our Lake George lodge and resort!

Deposits & Payments

Our deposit & payment methods will be updated soon. Thank you for all of your patience.


Please note that our Lake George resort tavern is open daily for cocktails. If there is a selection that you prefer that we do not carry, please let us know and we will try to have it in stock for your enjoyment. We do not allow guests to bring their own alcohol onto the resort.


We are sorry that we cannot accept pets at the lodge. We do have a list of kennels in our area and can offer recommendations for your extended family members.

CIL Reservation Policy

To our returning members and guests, we want to give you the opportunity to request your previous year’s accommodations before we accept new reservations. You will be given first refusal on the room you had the previous season for the same time period. Please confirm your reservation with a deposit before the indicated date, which will be sent out to all previous guests, in order to ensure your reservation. If we do not hear from you we will assume your plans have changed and will release the space to others who are requesting availability. If we have already received your deposit but we are working with you for an accommodation or date change, we will be contacting you to confirm your request.

A deposit of 500 USD per night per room including tax will be charged at the time of booking. The remaining balance will be charged 60 days prior to arrival. If reserving within 60 days of arrival, 100% including tax and service will be charged.


As most of you are aware, New York State has restricted smoking in public areas. Because we have so many guests asking for non-smoking rooms at our Lake George resort, we request that all our guest’s rooms remain smoke-free.

Now that you know some of our policies, take a look at the great accommodations on Lake George you can choose from when you stay at Canoe Island Lodge. Come see why we are preferred among all resorts in New York state!
