Have been to/through Old Forge, NY many times, usually to camp close by, but never to ski Mtn McCauley nor stay at the Water's Edge Inn. This past weekend we got to do both. As members of National Ski Patrol Assoc., my husband and I attended an NSP event at Mt. McCauley. In all, 84 patrollers invaded Old Forge and...

My family and I have come here 3 summers in a row and we are quite happy with it. They serve a continental, free breakfast which is pretty diverse, albeit not the best...but the staff is nice, the rooms are clean and quiet and they have a nice, cozy library/sitting area with a fire place which I always use when...

We are elated to know that you have a wonderful time when you are here. We try very hard to make sure our guests are happy. And, yes, while we frown upon feeding the wildlife for a variety of reasons (and it is illegal), mostly for their health and for cleanliness for all our guests, we do know how enjoyable...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. It sounds like you had an enjoyable stay, however you only gave us 3 stars. Is there something more we could do to improve that? We appreciate hearing suggestions. Thank you.

This hotel is geared up for Christmas. Santa does breakfast with the kids on Saturday and Sunday. Beautiful setting right on the lake, decked out for Christmas. Free breakfast each morning. Nice room, many choices. Plenty to do in Old Forge. Horse and wagons rides. Light parade, tree lighting and plenty of shopping. Wonderful fairy land to take the kids....

We are delighted that you enjoyed your weekend with us! ADK Christmas On Main in Old Forge, Thendara and Inlet, as well as Breakfast With Santa at Water's Edge Inn, is one of our favorite weekends!

Thank you for your review. We're happy to know that the Guest Services binder was useful to you.

The views were breathtaking (2nd weekend in October), the staff helpful & friendly. The rooms were nicely decorated with comfortable mattresses. Common area with reading material, coffee offers another great view. Breakfast was included (more than adequate). Would recommend!

The hall to the rooms smells musty and looks dingy. Once in the room, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The view of the lake and the little balcony were a treat. The breakfast is adequate, the staff is very accommodating, and the lounge area is very pleasant. Handicapped facilities are available.

So glad you enjoyed your accommodations, the staff, and the Continental Breakfast. Thank you for your review. I will take a closer look into the hallways to see about your comment and what may need to be done.... We are always looking to improve where we can.

After labor day there's plenty of room and parking. Nice place to crash the night before the 90miler start. It's right on the lake, nice view. Very good location. The one drawback is that the front desk closes at 9:00pm. But the continental breakfast is ready at 6am. I'd definitely stay again. Clean room, comfortable beds.
