Fantastic Women's Retreat. Beautiful, relaxing spot right on Lake George, NY. The food was delicious. The one downside was that the main building is the only one with air conditioning. The other buildings supply fans in the bedrooms, but they can still get uncomfortable trying...More

There is an awesome vibe at Wiawaka. An ongoing summer retreat for working women from the Troy collar factories. Although the clientele has changed a wee bit, the energy, spirit and sense of sisterhood has not. A breathtaking expanse of Lake George (undeveloped and turn...More

UNIQUE "women's retreat" on a jaw-dropping, expansive lakefront property. Three historic Victorian buildings, plus accommodations in two others, including the recently restored Waconda House. Stay or get a day pass for $15.00. No men, no kids. BLISS. Meals can be purchased separately. Many life enrichment...More
