The Fern Lodge
Ranked #1 of 8 Chestertown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2014

It's all been said before, but I couldn't help but chime in. The Fern Lodge is spectacular. Sharon and Greg are wonderful innkeepers who are really, genuinely happy to have to you in their stay. The lodge is beautifully appointed with all you could need or want in a lakeside mountain home. We stayed in the Cedar room for two nights and just adored the vaulted ceilings, massive fireplace, comfy furnishing, walk in shower, and jacuzzi tub. The amenities are top notch and we only wish we had more time to spend lounging around on the deck, in front of the fire, or down by the lake. Breakfast was delicious, and we really enjoyed talking to the other guests. We hope to come back here again, and again, and again!

The Fern Lodge is a true jewel in the Adirondacks and I am hesitant to want to share what a gorgeous place this is since it may increase in popularity. My significant other "fell in love" with this exclusive lodge that is not only beautiful but also very comfortable and homey. Sharon and Greg are wonderful hosts who live on the property and are more than eager to share their incredible home and family. We were only able to spend one night at The Fern Lodge; we were left wanting a few more lazy days and relaxing nights. The lodge has five immaculate rooms that are decorated in true Adirondack style. Thank you Greg and Sharon for creating a perfect getaway. We will be returning soon!

Thank you so much for your lovely words. Don't worry about us becoming too popular- we have only 5 rooms and that is all we have any intention of having. We will always have a room for you for a very relaxing romantic getaway!

My boyfriend & I visited Jan.11-12 and had the most incredible time. Besides the room (Birch) being unbelievable & gorgeous in every way, the staff was beyond top notch. Susan & Brittany and Chef Chris were incredible. So wonderful and just the most accommodating and welcoming staff imaginable. Susan, especially, was a gem- so kind and we had such a nice time chatting with her throughout the course of our stay. Everything about the Fern Lodge was perfect, from the grounds, to the lodge, to the food, and even sweet little Shadow & Noche! We are already looking forward to making a return sometime in the spring/ summer! It is the best of the best.

Room Tip: The Birch Room was GORGEOUS with the double sided fireplace and a nice view over the lake!

We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves! Susan is a great Innkeeper and we are very proud to have such great people. Glad we could provide you with a 4-legged guide-in-training as well, but how did you get her to sit still long enough to take a picture?

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. You know the kind of cabin you dream about? The one with fireplaces and rustic furniture and big soft beds and of course, a view of the water? Well, check check and check. This one goes even beyond your dreams. Can't wait to go back.

Words can't describe this place. We will be back very often as the Fern Lodge gave us just what we needed to get away from city life and recharge our lives back to reality. Being situated on a lake gave us the tranquility but only minutes away from the mountain hikes that gave us our exercise for the week. It is truly a paradise snuggled away in a perfect setting.

Come back soon! Many of our guests enjoy trying a different room or a different season- try us in the winter with the fireplaces blazing. Gore Mountain is great skiing and just 18 minutes away!
