There’s something about eating ice cream in Lake George that says summer has arrived.

Whether you prefer hard ice cream or soft serve, a cone or a dish, all the toppings or none at all, we’ve got the scoop on the 5 best spots for ice cream in Lake George.

Martha’s Dandee Cream

Located south of Lake George Village across from Six Flags Great Escape amusement park, Martha’s Dandee Cream is arguably the most famous ice cream spot in Lake George.

The Pink Roof

Serving frozen treats on Beach Road in Lake George since 1970, The Pink Roof is easy to spot with its pastel-painted shingles. Try the vanilla soft-serve ice cream swirled with a flavor burst of your choice to create unique flavors, like cotton candy and coffee ‘n cream, or watch the steamboats come and go while enjoying a coconut milkshake, old-fashioned slushie or homemade Italian ice.
