The inn was constructed in 1898 as part of Millionaires Row on Lake George. The stone mansion served as a residence through the 1960s, when Charles Wood expanded the property to include Sun Castle Resort. The building was then sold to the current owners, who renovated the interior into its current form as a lakefront resort.

Dream come true!
The Inn at Erlowest turned our dream into reality! Planning a wedding is stressful & with the Covid-19 pandemic, it makes planning a wedding even more stressful! LeAnna at Erlowest was by our sides every step up of the way throughout our planning process and made planning a wedding during a pandemic much easier! She went above and beyond to make our special day perfect. The moment we got to the venue the weekend of our wedding, LeAnna & Laurie helped us make sure everything was in place for our big day. We can't thank them both enough! All of our guests can't stop talking about how delicious the food was and how gorgeous the grounds of the venue are. We're so happy we kept our original wedding plans (with a much smaller guest count of course). Our wedding day was more than we could have ever imagined.Sent on 01/01/2021

The Most Beautiful Location for our September Weddings!
My husband and I have had the best experience working with Liz and the Erlowest team!! We live in the NYC area and when we had our initial visit at the Inn we knew hands down we wanted our wedding at the Inn. Nothing else compared to the views and it put our minds at ease to see the team on top of everything even during our first meeting. Liz responded to my thousands of questions, emails, and calls throughout the whole process and worked with us when we needed to postpone our big wedding to 2021, but still wanted to have a minimony this year. The second I handed over my decorations and other items to Liz the day of our minimony, my mind was so at ease and I knew the rest of our day was going to be amazing. It ended up being the perfect day, and the Erlowest team played a big part in that. We held our ceremony at North Pointe which was absolutely beautiful, and later we had dinner on the front terrace of the Inn with our 30 guests. I can't stress how amazing every detail of the day was, and our guests were so happy to see the Erlowest team keeping to CDC and NYS guidelines. The food was DELICIOUS and the cake was so good I had to restrain myself from eating the top tier on the drive back home. Our family stayed in the townhouses on the property which were so convenient and spacious that we booked the same ones for our event next year, and have more guests staying there as well. A HUGE thank you to Liz and the Erlowest team for making our wedding absolutely perfect - we can't wait to do it again next year!!Sent on 11/02/2020
