Chose the Big Moose as we wanted to experience a traditional Adirondack inn and it did not disappoint. The location is excellent, set on the shore of Big Moose Lake with gorgeous views and wonderful places to sit and admire the scenery: Adirondack chairs, decks, gazebo, all great places to watch the sun set behind the mountains. The inn is... More

I was initially attracted by the rustic looks of the inn. The room was private and overlooked the lake which was very nice. The staff and owners were quite accommodating. Great choices with the continental breakfast. The area was just beautiful with lots of potential to be on the water or on land, plenty of hiking trails to check out.... More

Been coming for 24 years and this place never disappoints. Spent last week at the Big Moose and it was great! Perfect lake front spot away from busy roads and off the beaten trail but close enough to everything in the area. Casual bar food and fine dining restaurants both on property. Quaint and cozy!

Stayed in the Wilderness Room (#14) for a 2- night getaway. Comfortable, cozy room, spectacular view out the window. The staff is cheerful & accommodating, the breakfast was very good. The location offers a myriad of options for paddling, hiking or touring this beautiful area.

We have been to The Big Moose Inn for drinks before and thought it would be cool to stay sometime. We got our chance this past weekend. We were in Inlet for an event and decided it would be fun to stay at the inn. We were hoping for good weather so we could get out and explore the lake.... More

Had never been here prior. Our room had a great view of the lake and the inn was homey Adirondack. But, the dinner / food and service was fantastic. I would drive a ways to eat here. The owners were very hands-on and it shows. The rooms need some updating but comfortable. The bar was fun. Would rate the restaurant... More

There is no place like the Big Moose Inn. It's beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, any time of year. We have shared so many special memories there, including getting engaged under the gazebo. Every year, we look forward to sitting on the porch, listening to nature, drinking our morning coffee. We wake to the sound of the loons calling out. The rooms... More

After several visits to the Big Moose Inn we knew this would be an ideal venue for a family and friend event. Our innkeepers Mark and Susan made sure all of our guests had anything they needed. Food options in both the pub and dining room (reservations needed, so as not to back up the kitchen) have something for everyone.... More

The staff is very helpful and nice. The Inn is placed far from crowded places and it is a beautiful location for even a short stay. We only wish we could stay more than one night! We had dinner at the pub (restaurant was fully booked) and enjoyed good food! P.S. : you can also arrive by boat

I knew my sister had picked the perfect place as soon as we turned into the driveway and got our first view of beautiful Big Moose Lake. This is a real rustic inn with squeaky floors, a wooden screened door to enter the lobby and some doors that rub their frame which is all part of the charm of this... More
