“Exceeded Expectations!”
Reviewed 7 July 2008

My husband and I just returned from a weekend spent at the Moose River House. What a find! The secluded location is just what you want if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay. It is just minutes from Old Forge.

Everything was impeccable- from the clean rooms to the fabulous full american breakfasts served on the weekends.
The owners were so friendly and seemed genuinely happy to be taking care of us.

We stayed in the Farquharson Suite. This second floor room has a spectacular view of the river and is filled with bright sunshine. It's a very large room with a private bath and sitting area.

There are Adirondack chairs placed all over the grounds to enjoy the serene surroundings. They have canoes and kayaks you can use as well.

This B&B is a jewel.

We happened to be in the Adirondacks mid-week and found the Moose River House while exploring the area. I am so glad we stayed....the location is amazing, and the view from our room was breathtaking. We actually arrived after dark, so we didn't really have an idea of the surroundings when we fell asleep but the inn is just charming inside, so we knew we'd found a gem.

The B&B is situated right on the Moose River, and we awoke after a restful evening to birdsong and a clear, lovely day. We stayed in the Farquharson room; it featured a private bath and a large, comfy bed. The picture window was an ideal foil to the morning mist that was just clearing from the Moose River, and once the drapes were drawn back we had a gorgeous, sweeping view of the river and the lush backyard.

After getting ready for our day, we headed downstairs and were pleasantly surprised to find several small, cafe-style tables in the dining area. In most B&Bs that we've experienced, there is one large table that can make for a great or horrible experience over breakfast, simply depending upon your table mates. With the small tables, we could choose to talk with our neighbors or not, which is great for one who is not completely sociable prior to her first cup of coffee in the morning. Breakfast was delicious - we started with fresh fruit and yogurt, and then moved on to an amazing, golden-toasty-brown quiche and yummy potatoes.

The rates are beyond reasonable and this inn is not to be missed - if you're in the Adirondacks (or just pining for a weekend away), you need to stay here!
