We have stayed at the Irondequoit Club many times over the last twenty years and have found it consistently warm and friendly with an attentive staff and charming rooms--ample meals, too. Recommended for anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax with no demands. It's true there's not much to do in the area, although the Blue Mountain Museum is a delight, but for purposes of unwinding and de-stressing amid spectacular Adirondack scenery, we haven't found anyplace better.

Irondequoit Inn is owned by (and, in fact, was built by) a group of families. This group of families uses the Inn often and they hire a manager to run it. The problem is, these managers (as well as the chef) change frequently. So you never know if its going to be good or not. We have stayed there a couple of times over the years, as we have friends who have a cabin near by.

In many ways it is a very typical Adirondack Inn - a little tattered around the edges, but fairly charming. The location is great as it is not only on a wonderful lake that has great fishing, swimming, and boating, but it is a close paddle to kayak back into a couple of wilderness streams. Their beach is sometimes nicely maintained, and sometimes not very clean at all (weeds, sticks, etc).

It's too bad this place doesn't have consistent owners who would have something at stake running it. I think there would be many improvements. As it is now, you get the impression it is just barely hanging on.

Different members of my family had completely different reactions to this 100+ year old inn, way off the beaten path in the Adirondacks. It's one of those places that it seems families have come back to for years, although the current owners have only had it for the past few - a book in the "living room" actually had family trees showing 5 and 6 generations of people who had visited. My wife thought it was tired & musty, with characterless rooms. I thought it could have used some freshening up, but was otherwise quite charming, as I think the attached photos show. We agreed that the breakfast (pancakes, french toast, eggs, not fancy but perfectly prepared) was outstanding. The owners are a pleasant young couple who seem to be able to find guests by word of mouth, or family traditions, even though it's almost unmarketed on the Web or otherwise. Listening to a few tweedy breakfast conversations we overheard, this must have a secondary market among the professorial set. The inn itself sits on a high hill above the lake, so the walk down to the lake is a little steep and tricky, but the lake itself would be perfect for small children -- it stays no more than knee-deep to waist-deep for a couple hundred yards offshore -- and there are a couple of platforms for jumping off. They rent canoes for about $30 a day, and apparently own a private island in the lake that you can paddle to (we didn't), and have a tennis court as well ($3/hr on the honor system, which seemed a little silly). This is purely a peace-and-quiet kind of place - there's virtually nothing nearby; even the town of Speculator 12 miles away is little more than a crossroads with a few shops and restaurants. If you like sitting on a porch, doing a jigsaw puzzle, or lazing by a quiet, pretty Adirondack lake, this is a fine choice. If you need a little more stimulation, this ain't the place. Double rooms are under $100.
