My fiance and I took a weekend getway to the Fern Lodge. Owners Greg and Sharon Taylor provided world-class hospitality in this luxurious and rustic setting. The drive up from Rochester NY was beautiful. The home's location on the lake is perfect and secluded which adds a wonderful touch to this hidden gem. Rustic in decor, the home boasts beautiful exposed architecture with natural wood and spacious quarters. The rooms are wonderfully appointed with fireplaces, huge four-poster wood beds, a balcony overlooking Friends Lake, a jetted tub and steam showers in your room. The common area is wonderful and comforatable. They also have live fireplaces burning on their outdoor patio. Every adult amenity is here inclusive of a movie theater, fitness room, sauna, pool table, hot tub, full bar, kayaks and canoes. Finally Greg and Sharon have an amazing collection of wine that you can buy right of of their climate-controlled cellar. They have a bredth of vintages and producers with pricing that will make you very happy. Never before have a been to a lodge with a better wine list. This is the perfect spot for any season as it has great access to Friends Lake in the summer and spring, it is 20 minutes from Gore Ski Mtn, and perfect for an Adirondack fall getway. You must go!
