Ice castles is an award-winning frozen attraction coming to Lake George for the first time in 2022! Lake George is proud to be the fifth city in the country to host this unique winter event. The process starts with dozens of ice artisans placing between 5,000 and 12,000 icicles until the structure reaches soaring heights up to 30 feet. The Lake George ice castles are equipped with led lights that twinkle in this breathtaking sculpture. Stay with us at The Lodges at Cresthaven, and you will be a short drive away from this magical attraction and everything Lake George has to offer.
