This place is horrible! The room I stayed in was musty and hadn't been cleaned. The staff was also very rude and not helpful during my stay. Will never go here again!!! Save you're money and go elsewhere.

We decided at last minute to get away for a long weekend. My husband found the fern lodge near lake George. What a gem. We stayed in the birch room. It was very romantic. We used it as our base to go to lake placid one day and lake George another. The 3rd day we stayed on premises, went kayaking,... More

If you are a city slicker..... Please find time to get away. The seclusion of this luxury Lodge is relaxing and peaceful. Sharon and staff is amazingly accommodating. The amenities seemed endless. This will be my new hidaway/getaway from home. I encourage all to visit

My husband and I visited the Fern Lodge in November, and it was wonderful! The property is beautiful and feels very romantic. We loved watching a movie in the basement together, snuggled by the fire sipping wine with another couple, and enjoying a steam shower. The breakfast was amazing! Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We had... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Fern Lodge in May 2014. I can't say enough nice things about our experience. We stayed in the Forest room, which has its own private fire pit on the walkout patio. It also has a fireplace, an in-room two-person Jacuzzi, an enormous shower with multiple shower heads and large rocks to sit... More

The Fern Lodge was incredibly accomodating! Sharon was very friendly and helpful.They provided maps and suggestions for restaurants. We enjoyed playing ping pong, and watching movies in the theater with some freshly made popcorn! The steam shower, jetted tub, fireplace, and sounds of crickets chirping outside made for a very relaxing, and romantic honeymoon in the Adirondacks. It was an... More

We stayed at The Fern Lodge in November 2014 and Sharon and Greg are the perfect hosts! Our room was beautiful, its one of their newest rooms and at every turn they thought of everything. The view was beautiful and bathroom over the top! Breakfast was wonderful and this is the place to be if you are snowed in. I... More

My boyfriend and I just got home from a very relaxing one night stay at The Fern Lodge. When we arrived, innkeeper Sharon and the dogs, Noche and Shadow greeted us!! If you're not a fan of dogs, this is not the place for you! The dogs are not allowed in the guest rooms, however they are allowed in the... More

I honestly don't know where to start as every single thing from the moment I stepped foot into this wonderful property was out of this world. Sharon was incredibly welcoming, the property itself and the setting is heavenly and canoeing first thing is the morning on the lake before coming back to the bedroom and warming up by the fire,...

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend. It was a beautiful, rustic setting. We stayed in the Pine Room which had a gorgeous view of Friend's Lake from the deck. A cozy fireplace and Adirondack style decor were tastefully done. Sharon, the owner, couldn't have been more hospitable. She would get you whatever us we desired. Sitting by... More
