We've stayed at the Trout many times. The "newer" king rooms are super! Super compfy bed, fridge and coffee maker. Huge walk-in shower (no tub), tasteful "trout" decor. West Branch Ausable C & R fishing, fly shop,outdoor pool and great dining on the premises! Staff throughout are super friendly and helpful.

Our first night there I had to call the office and report that the pillows smelled bad. I didn't know if it was the pillowcases or the pillows themselves. They had a sour smell. I was told that there were other pillows in the closet. I felt the management should have at least made an attempt to come to our...

This location is convenient for the high peaks region without being stuck in the crowds. Owner demonstrated patience and helpfulness. We stayed in a two room unit. Back room was perfect for our adult children. Bed in front room a bit soft. All was kept clean. This is our second or third time here and we plan to return.

This was a perfect location for us, as we wanted to be near Whiteface Mountain and also near good fishing. Close enough to Lake Placid (15 minutes) to easily visit, but far enough away to not be surrounded by tourist traffic. Very clean room, well maintained pool and beautiful scenery. The guides in the fly shop were very helpful. There...

My husband and I stopped here quite by accident when we went to the area to cycle. The owner and staff were very pleasant and accommodating when every morning we asked if we could stay another night. We had planned to move around for the three says we were in the area but couldn't find a reason to leave the...

We have stayed at, and hunted from here twice, The accommodations and dining are excellent, and Jerry is a first class guide and a most gracious host. We recommend the Hungry Trout highly. Fall in particular.

We have had dinner at the Hungry Trout several times and it's always been very goodt. This time we stayed at the Hungry Trout Inn and it also was great. You can't beat the scenic setting on the West Ausable and the friendly service from all the people associated with the Inn and restaurant.

In 33 years, I don't remember anticipating a negative review so easily as from this guest. If there was a dictionary of WORST POSSIBLE GUESTS ON THE PLANET, this guy would be on the cover. An hour after checking in, he asked that the beds be changed and that the sheets looked like they were used. We use the most...

The Hungry Trout earns its reputation and bragging rights due to their fly shop and fishing guides. I researched their website and inquired about their advertised fish and stay packages. I was told to book a room and contact the fly shop. So for us there was no "package", but the idea was to provide my husband (celebrating his birthday)...

My only complaint about this "resort" term used loosely, is that my boyfriend called ahead to confirm our reservation but when we arrived it turned out that we didn't have a room for the first night. Turns out there was another reservation for someone with a very similar name for the period of time we were planning to stay. Since...
