If you are looking for a quiet romantic place this would be the place. The rooms were very clean. Clean bathrooms!
Only complaint is the rooms could be a liltle bit warmer!

This is a quaint little Adirondacks lodge with a charming history. It was once a music school for girls and the seven rooms are named for the instruments tacked on their doors. The lodge has been in the same family for years, and the couple who have it now are very friendly.

The view over two lakes (in the distance) is lovely and my son loved the tabletop shuffleboard game in the pub. We didn't try the fine dining, but the setting is inviting and romantic. You can also eat lunch or dinner in the bar or front porch, where you need no reservations and the food is less expensive (but still high, I would say).

To be honest, though, for $90 a night I expected more. The rooms could use updating, as the decor is tired, the carpets worn and the beds saggy. It bothered me to spend what I would spend on a good hotel room for this room. But the room does come with breakfast foods laid out in the fireplace lobby area -- juices, yogurts, cereals and milk, and packaged pastries. You'd have a bit of a drive to find breakfast otherwise.

The upshot: This is a quirky little lodge that some will love and some will hate.

Our stay at the Melody Lodge was wonderful. The owners and all of the staff were friendly and outgoing. The food was delicious and the room immaculate. I would stay there again in a heartbeat and have recommended it to many people.
