Lovingly restored inn with personal touches at every turn! From fresh cookies upon arriving, local art gracing the walls, trails for hiking and winter touring, the Bark Eater is a respite for your body and soul! Our innkeepers were attentive and knowledgeable and insured we were comfortable and cared for! The decor, the views and delicious breakfast will keep us...

The welcome was wonderful. Very knowledgable staff. Lovely food. Accommodating options for sleeping. Holiday decorations made us feel like we were at home. Fireplace room was our favorite hangout. Played candy land (provided) and other games. Kids visited the chicken coop. Ideally located. Lake Placid right down the road. Will be visiting this treasure again.

If you've been conjuring images of vast wilderness spaces framed by mountains and don't want to venture far from the confines of NY, hop in your car and drive to the great white north in the Adirondacks. The Bark Eater Inn is off the beaten path in a wide open, possibility expanding setting. In between the Northway exit and Lake...

My husband and I were between the Bark Eater and another inn closer to Lake Placid and we were so incredibly happy we picked Bark Eater! We were the only guests and treated like family by Megan, Robin, and Tyler! The property has undergone a massive gut job, so they apparently are pretty new, but I can say with confidence...

From the moment we stepped out of our car and stood there in awe by the beauty surrounding the Inn, we already felt like we had found a hidden treasure! Starting by the little note that greeted us in the entrance, to the attention to detail in every room, we not only felt at home but were welcomed and looked...

It's difficult to write a review of the Bark Eater Inn because I read the reviews of those that went before me and after our stay I find that I agree with all the previous positive reviews. What can I say that hasn't already been said. All the appropriate adjectives like beautiful, cozy, clean, comfortable, welcoming, have all been used...

This historic stage coach stop and bed/breakfast is welcoming, comfortable and just all around lovely. The setting is gorgeous and also nicely located for hiking trips (we climbed Mt. Marcy). Hospitality was beyond generous, in small details (comfy pillows on the bed, great cookies at the door) and large (building fires in the hearth for us every night, getting breakfast...

My sister and I stayed at the Bark Eater Inn for two nights (and would've stayed forever if they'd let us!). The Inn is a beautifully restored farmhouse, with plank floors, a stone fireplace and cozy sitting porches. What captured my attention, however, were the gardens, which were in full bloom in late September! Breakfast was homemade and locally sourced...

Thank you both so much! We were really excited that you got out to explore the grounds and gardens. It was so great to have guests fully using the playground that is our back yard! We hope to see you and maybe your families again sometime!

We had the pleasure of staying in the Bark Eater Inn´s cabin while visiting family in the area. The cabin was excellent! Spacious, well-equipped and comfortable bed and atmosphere. The location in the woods gives a wilderness experience with wildlife right outside the door, but while still being close to amenities. Thank you for our pleasant stay!

We had another great long weekend at this beautifully restored small inn. The grounds and views are amazing, with gardens, meadows, and a beaver pond all surrounded by the High Peak views. The historic inn and rooms have a lot of character. We slept well every night thanks to the mountain air and luxurious bedding. The location is perfect, close...
