The inn was constructed in 1898 as part of Millionaires Row on the lake.

The building was then sold to the current owners, who renovated the interior into its current form as a lakefront resort.

Best decision we made.
From our first trip to see the venue to our final meeting The Erlowest was everything we could have imagined. Great people, great service, and a beautiful location to top it off. Jordan and the Erlowest staff were exceptional. Jordan was prompt, tentative, polite, and incredible at what she does. She made the entire experience more enjoyable and we loved working with her. Her accommodating our needs with happiness made it that much more worth it. It is exactly what you would want in a coordinator. Someone you can trust to handle the day of responsibilities and have everything run smoothly. We LOVED our experience with them - if you're considering a wedding on Lake George, the Erlowest is 100% the way to go.Sent on 09/20/2019

Book the Inn at Erlowest!
The Erlowest is a fanstastic wedding venue. Our guests can't stop talking about how beautiful it was and how good the food was. Liz, our wedding coordinator, couldn't have been more helpful. She was following my wife around, lifting up her dress when needed, offering water, etc. Can't say enough good things about this place.Sent on 09/12/2019
