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

We couldnt have picked a more perfect place to spend our honeymoon. We were in awe of the beauty of the place the second we pulled into the driveway. We were immediately greeted by Shadow. He is such a handsome boy and we quickly became friends.We arrived several hours before check in. We were greeted and introduced right away to... More

Amazing property with all the conveniences you could hope for. The rooms were beautifully furnished and the staff was super friendly and courteous. Breakfasts are delicious, and the atmosphere makes this lodge a wonderfully relaxing and comforting destination. I would recommend in a heartbeat and hope to be returning very soon!

Beautiful adirondack style house on a private lake. Room was beautiful. Breakfast fairly standard nothing great. A bit out of the way location. While we had no complaints, we felt the room was very overpriced at nearly $500 a night for a b&b.

My husband and I stayed at The Fern Lodge in the Forest Room which was absolutely lovely. The lodge is beautiful...surrounded by woods and sits right on the lake. The Forest Room is on the lower level and you can walk right out onto a path leading down to the lake. The room has it's own private fire pit and... More

We stayed two nights in the Birch Room and found everything as portrayed...and better. Lovely setting on a nice lake. The lodge is beautiful, well landscaped and extremely well appointed for guest enjoyment. The owners and staff are Incredible and 100% accommodating. Boat rides in the evening, sauna and neat theater with honor bar in lower level. Great breakfast looking... More

This is a gem in the Adirondacks. We absolutely loved our stay in the Cedar room! We came here on our honeymoon a day after being married :) It was the perfect escape from all of the stress of the wedding. Our room had a spacious bathroom complete with rain head steamer shower and Jacuzzi tub. The king sized bed... More

My wife and I spent 3 days at the Fern Lodge, and had an extraordinarily good experience. It is a stunning property, and the service was perfect. The breakfasts were so good, we weren't able to eat lunch! We considered staying at a luxury resort on Lake George, and in fact visited it when we were on our stay. While... More
