“Can't say enough good things about the Big Moose Inn!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We spent New Year's eve at the Big Moose Inn! It was a wonderful experience from the moment we walked in the door till the moment we checked out. The owners are a lovely, friendly, service minded young couple that really make you feel welcome! The food was wonderful and the dining room was comfortable yet appropriately festive. The duck, lamb chops and garlic mashed potatoes should not be missed. The tavern was comfortable, well stocked and the bartender was attentive, friendly and just right on mark all night despite the number of people celebrating the New Year. Our room was small, but comfortable, immaculately clean, and had a great view of the lake. Our experience was not out of the ordinary, as everyone we met at the inn shared similar stories of how well they were treated and how pleasant their stays were. The inn was fully booked, but we felt like we received personal attention from the owners and staff. We will definitely return!

Food is great in restaurant and tavern. Staff very friendly and helpful. Located lakeside. Boating, canoeing, hiking. Beautiful mountains in all directions. Many scenic lakes nearby. Cozy fireplace, porch, dock. Under very good management. We'll go back every year.

One of our favorite spots have been coming here off and on for 20 years(many owners recently) food was excelent stay was short and not to great weather wise but all in all we enjoyed ourselves. Could use some sprucing up . we realize it is an old building but unfortunatly it is beginning to need some work. especially the bathroom facilities need to be updated.

We reserved two nites thereand arrived midnight. Not sure what to expect, we wete greeted by the owner at the door. In need of a glass of wine after our 7 hour trip, he kept the tavern open, talking and telling us about the area. Next day we went to the town. Charming! We spent the day exploring, then went back to the inn for dinner. The good was excellent. After appetizers of baby lamb chops and smoked clam chowder, we ordered prime rib sandwiches. Delicious! The whole staff was friendly. A pleasure to have stayed there.
The complimentary breakfast was bountiful and enjoyable. Took our coffee out on the expansive porch overlooking the big moose lake. The weather was not conducive to canoeing that will be next time. Loved it

My wife and I used a Travelzoo deal for two nights at the Big Moose Inn this past weekend. The location is beautiful. The Inn is very nice. We spent a lot of time sitting on the front porch relaxing. The first night we were in a second floor room . To say we got a bad nights sleep would be an understatement. It is an older building and the walls are pretty thin, and anything above a normal conversational tone can be heard clearly ....The folks around us were partying late into the night, and were pretty loud.
We asked to be moved to the third floor in the morning and immediately took a nap to recover our wits. Our second night was perfect, we slept well, and heard the loons (the bird ones)....while catching up on our Z's.
The service in both the bar and restaurant was very good. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Kudo's to the young lady at the front desk who moved our room and saved our weekend....many thanks!

Room Tip: Request a room on the third floor if you don't mind stairs and are a light sleeper. The Inn is a...

We had an awesome stay, food was great, the spinach artichoke dip was very good. Our room was clean and cozy. Service was best of all, very friendly staff and laid-back. The inn's position on the lake is perfect for relaxing and taking canoes out for a paddle.

Stayed at big Moose the week before last. Very quiet, comfortable spot. Staff were friendly and dinner(s) were top notch. First stay with current owners. Certainly is improved. Great location to experience the "Adirondacks".
