A lot of care has been put into this place. The lodges are all handmade, each very different, and all very appealing. (I was allowed to nosey around and see several of the empty lodge rooms.) The rooms were wonderful, clean, homely, and I was very, very comfortable during my stay. I liked how quiet it was, and the peaceful...

I visited the lodge for a couple nights, as part of a work trip. After staying in so many luxury hotels, the relaxed, informal family atmosphere was such a balm for my spirit. No stiff, carefully manicured folks behind a registration desk, just Kathy and Ernest. Kathy often in her apron, from the kitchen. I only eat real food, and...

We went for dinner since we've heard that it was very good with a nice Adirondack feel. First we stopped by and nobody was around, no bell to ring, no number to dial, etc. Dinner was very limited with only about 5 items to choose from and then there was one additional item that had a $15 up-charge. The only...

Gorgeous lake and property but quite overpriced (cabins are expensive and for what you pay you would expected it to be really clean with nice furnishings (cheap $7or so drapes that always get stuck in the door since they aren't even cut to size), outdated. Breakfasts are very good but dinners are hit or miss (Salmon was overcooked and weird...

I stayed here for a conference I was presenting at. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful view of the sunset behind St. Regis mountain. The rooms are nice, we had a jacuzi tub. The room I stayed in was almost like a cabin. Breakfast the next morning was fantastic.

I know this review is long but please read through to the end. It will save you a lot of money if you are thinking of staying here. What these people do not understand is that one bad review is one too many! We have to say that if we would have read other people’s reviews, we would not be...

I can’t begin to tell you how much my boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay here. Everything from the atmosphere to the food and customer service was stellar. We enjoyed our own personal cabin, that had everything you needed, delicious home cooked gourmet food, and the perfect location. We enjoyed a beer tasting and a sleigh ride on a candle...

Relaxing is the first word to describe our anniversary "get away". We were in a beautiful cabin called "The Guide's Cabin" that was finished with every detail taken into consideration. A newly shoveled path in the snow led to a welcoming warm cabin. A freshly baked loaf of pumpkin bread was waiting on a tray in our cabin when we...
