Big Moose Inn.
I just want to be clear on this. I read some of the reviews and thinking to myself it is an Inn, not a fancy 4 or 5 Stare hotel but an Inn. I really enjoyed my time there and had a wonderful relaxing weekend. The property itself is very cozy. Yes it is old and maybe warn down but what do you expect? well do not expect too much, that is the purpose of it. It is like going to your own cabin in the summer to relax and enjoy the simple life. It is what it is, it is in the middle of no where by a beautiful lake and surrounded by wilderness. The area is breath taking. Besides why would you complain about the rooms when you are outdoors all the time. They offer free Kayaking boats and a Canoes. Next door they rent all sorts of boats. You get to hike and breath the fresh air. I have been in NYC too long I forgot what clean air smells like.
The view from our room was gorgeous. I can not describe it because it is worth going there for a couple of days to relax and unwind.
I have to congratulate Mark the owner for doing such a great job. We dined at his restaurant during our stay and we loved the food. Maybe it is not a Michelin rated restaurant but believe me his food is better than some of restaurants in Manhattan that were even rated by Zagat. you will not be disappointed. While we were there I saw lots of people who were not staying at the Inn were coming to dine in his restaurant. you require a reservation because he is always busy and packed.
Also if you are looking for a fun night just hit the bar. Tony a cool ozzy bartender will keep you entertained and fun to talk to. the food at the tavern is great too.
I highly recommend to go there and relax and enjoy nature for what it is.
Thank you Big Mosses Inn for a lovely stay and hopefully I will be back for the winter season.
