Check out the guide tents at the Woods Inn in Inlet, New York where our sleep was disturbed only by peepers, birds, and the gentle lapping of waves on the shore of Fourth Lake within a short stroll of quaint “downtown” Inlet, New York. A gentle rain in the morning added to the charm of the surroundings.
Innkeepers Jay and Joedda go to great lengths to assure the comfort of their guests where the size of the tents are so generous they easily accommodate a queen size bed, Adirondack chair, footstool, armoire, desk, trunk, and end tables. Electric heaters and fans are included.
Adjacent to the tent’s front porch (two more Adirondack chairs) was the privy which is constructed by sturdy rough logs and had a two headed shower, benches, and granite counter tops!
After enjoying a drink in the Inn’s tavern, I recommend that you take advantage of dinner at the Woods Inn. And, don’t miss the $6 buffet breakfast in the dining room or on the back porch with its terrific view of Fourth Lake.
This old inn’s expansive lawn is filled with more Adirondack chairs and spills down to the lake and its boat dock that attacks happy hour and dinner guests as well as fisherpeople who wish to try their luck with rod and reel. If interested in something more venturesome, rent a kayak or canoe from the Frisky Otter (on premises) where Connie will properly outfit you with all the right gear and equipment.
Pass on the guide tent if you prefer smaller accommodations and the more traditional feel of an inn. But, seriously consider a guide tent if you want a delightful change of pace that is in the spirit of the history of the Adirondacks and without the inconvenience of roughing it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A restored turn of the century inn with tavern and restaurant. Situated on Fourth Lake in Inlet with amazing Adirondack views. This is an award - winning historic property we designed to be a true Adirondack experience. The decor is meant to be campy shabby - chic. While we have added the modern conveniences that we think were lacking in the past century, we have tried to create a less stressful mountain environment that brings back another time. ... more less
