The property was beautiful with access to xc trails and stunning view of mountains & seventeenth lake. The massive stone fireplace was a central point in the lodge with comfy couches for relaxing. The downside was the walls were thin - could hear next door and floor below. Our mountain facing room was 55 degrees when we checked in. It took til the next morning for it to warm up

Beautiful Adirondack setting with all the comforts of home. Love the ability to cross country ski/hike/bike from your door without having to drive anywhere. Delicious and generous buffet breakfast. Cozy pub with $5 pints. Beautiful Adirondack decor in lodge and guest rooms. Inviting fireplaces throughout the lodge. Only slight complaint is that thin walls allow you to hear your neighbors at times. Highly recommend.

Nice rustic property. Very remote and subject to natures challenges. Ate dinner one night and it was good. Breakfast is better than most. Fresh juice on request and the staff is very friendly. Took advantage of the Skis tickets purchase option for the local downhill mountain (Gore) and the savings was very good. Cost was high, but it was new years eve week.

Love the main lodge and the size of the rooms in Tea House. Love the free pass to XC skiing with room. Dinner was the really only downfall -- very bland. The computer system was not working properly either. Staff was very friendly and efficient.
