Absolutely beautiful getaway! The place is a truly unique blend of luxury and serene comfort. We stayed for two nights in the Raquette Room on the third floor and it exceeded our expectations. The large bay window had a gorgeous lake view, we enjoyed our morning coffee (in handmade mugs!) on our private screened-in balcony overlooking the woods, and very much enjoyed the whirlpool tub and steam shower. The building has a lot of charm and character, and the friendly and welcoming staff made leaving at the end of our stay super hard. We will definitely be back!

We stayed here with a few other couples for a weekend in January, and the beautiful inn, comfortable room, and welcoming staff made for a relaxing, much-needed getaway. We stayed in the Lake Placid room and loved the gas fireplace, reading in the window seat, and relaxing in the steam shower and slipper tub. There is a Keurig machine in the room, but no refrigerator. There is a very small dorm-size fridge in the common room that will hold small items but is shared by all guests. Breakfast was delicious, and you can take your meal to your room if you feel more comfortable. We hiked over 2 miles on their trails to a pond with snowshoes they have available to use for free. We also cross country skied on Friends Lake. There is a trail across the street that brings you to an access point for use by inn guests. During non-COVID times, spending time in the bar and various lounge areas with fireplaces and a pool table would be fun, but most were unavailable. Dinner in the restaurant on-site was delicious and staff was very attentive. We found so many activities and also ways to relax right on-site that we didn’t leave the premises all weekend.

From the moment we walked in the staff was informative and inviting. They were eager to show us around the beautiful inn. Our room was very well appointed. The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was very nicely updated and the towels were so lush and soft. They had snowshoes available for our use and we walked around the trails at the property. it was so peaceful and beautiful. The food was amazing. We ate breakfast and dinner at the inn. The food tasted great and the service was top notch. would definitely recommend this inn and we will be going back.

A perfect weekend for my husband & I. This is our second time. First time we came a month ago. Very cozy, comfy and quiet! Great place to get away to for the weekend. Staff are wonderful - Dawn, Donna, Nicole, Shelby, & more... I think they have great staff. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Love Adirondack decor with wood burning fireplace. The scenery surrounding the inn is amazing. My husband & I come here just to relax and chill. We will definitely be coming back regularly!
