My husband and I spent 3 nights in the Pine room for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect!
Fantastic - we felt extremely welcome and someone was always around to answer questions if needed. It was great to have such personalized dinner recommendations! The lodge is extremely modern and equipped with some fancy stuff (e.g. the showers and home theatre!). There are written directions on how to work everything, and the staff was always willing to help out. They have maps and guide books available for guest use, which we found very helpful. Breakfast was delightful - beautifully presented and delicious, with lots of vegetarian options and meat from a local farm.
Worth the price!
Again, fantastic. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. There was climate control as needed (AC, gas fireplace, ceiling fan) but all we needed was to keep the window open. We never had any issues with noise.
Very clean, including the rooms, main areas, and bathrooms. They have a dog, but I didn't notice any dog fur or dog smells (and I'm the sort of person who would definitely notice).
The lake is all privately owned so sometimes we could hear neighbors, but nothing that took away from the "Adirondack experience". The directions on the website were perfect (we made it without at GPS). Secluded enough that it's very private, but also not too far of a drive from attractions (e.g. Lake George and many great restaurants)
Would stay in the Pine room again!
