People, I'm a real person from Pennsylvania, and I never write reviews like this. This place was great. The staff is super sweet. The lake is a gem. We took a beautiful paddle to see awesome views of Katadhin. The main lodge does remind me of the Adirondacks. It's comfortable and a good place to read and check email after... More

The restaurant here was recommended to us by a local (we were staying in Old Forge). Beautiful setting, dinner & the service was fantastic. Not foodie quality, but we were all satisfied. Played checkers with the kids after dinner on their dock. Thanks again for a great dining experience.

We've eaten here several times in the last 35 years. Great spot, wonderful views of the lake, a friendly atmosphere and nice food. Wanted to stay and eat at BM last week but the restaurant was closed for a few days, we showed up with out checking on the food service. They cheerfully refunded my room deposit when I said... More

This is a review of the Big Moose Inn in Eagle Bay, New York. We made reservations for a one night stay for June 18 at the Inn in late May 2015. It would take nearly 4 hours to arrive at the inn and we were genuinely looking forward to “...relaxing on the porch in one of our rocking chairs.”.... More

Big Moose Inn is a family favorite. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. It's a nostalgic adirondack inn where guests can socialize, play games,or do jigsaw puzzles in the common living area by the fireplace in the winter and enjoy many outside activities in winter and summer. The dining room serves the best and finest food in the whole Old... More

I have always wanted to visit Big Moose Lake as it is the actual location of an event which occurred in 1906 and was later immortalized In Theodore Drieser's 1925 classic, "An American Tragedy". I will not go into any detail on that here, read the book! I chose the Big Moose Inn as I prefer places with history and... More

The scenery is breathtaking. Most of the rooms are the rustic Adirondack style which compliments the location of this charming Inn. The owners are wonderful! They go out of their way to accommodate, very friendly. They offer complimentary use of canoes and kayaks. There are many trails nearby for hiking as well.

Great place to go to stay in the Old Forge area. Excellent food and friendly - professional service. Owners are some of the nicest people in the area and go the extra mile. Some of the best food in the area.

We go annually and now we plan to bring my son and his girlfriend this fall. Mark and Susan are wonderful, caring people. Staff are friendly and courteous and the location is delightful - food is excellent.
