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

We have stayed at the Big Moose Inn 3 or 4 times now and always enjoy it. The staff is very helpful, rooms are always clean, and dinner is always delicious. The Inn has a great bar when your are ready for a night cap and the staff will even light a fire by the water for you if you... More

Couldn't ask for anything more. Great views including sunsets, kayaks and canoes, a bar with a fantastic bartender, a top notch restaurant, cozy building, and friendly hosts. My wife and I stayed for only 1 night but expect to back for multiple nights.

I had visited the Big Moose Inn on my own several years ago, shortly after the current owners took over. It was such a great experience that when my husband and I traveled to the Adirondacks in July, we booked a four night stay. It's one of the last of the original Great Camps in the area, and the owners... More

Great food, great room, but most important time to be alone with the one you love. The cooking is gourmet, rich and full of flavors and textures. Atmosphere is romantic, the service was tentative, but not over bearing, very professional. Peter M. Finocchiaro and Dr. Andrea Finocchiaro

My husband and I had our wedding reception in June at the Big Moose Inn. We had a small reception with under 50 guests, and Susan and Mark (the owners) did an exceptional job of helping create a happy, personalized, comfortable, and welcoming environment for all our reception and overnight guests. Susan did a stellar job of helping me figure... More

If you are looking for world class accomodations, you should probably avoid the Adirondacks altogether...that is not what this magnificent area is all about. Apparently some of the other reviewers of this hotel just don't get it. If however, you are looking for an Adirondack inn that will meet or exceed your reasonable expectations, then this is definitely the place... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Big Moose Inn is located on picturesque Big Moose Lake in the central Adirondacks. This peaceful and relaxing setting is a perfect summer getaway that allows you to feel at home without all of the extra stresses of your daily life. The Adirondack Mountains surrounding the Big Moose Inn offer great summer fun, especially on it’s bountiful lakes mid-summer. After a day of hiking, horseback riding, boating or Adirondack fishing, kick off your boots and sit by the Big Moose Inn fireplace or wood stove and enjoy the ambiance, the food, the ale and our Adirondack lake country inn. During the warm summer months you can cap off your day by relaxing on the porch in one of our rocking chairs. After the sun has set you can mingle with the other guests next to our bonfire and listen for the sounds of the loons on the lake. The Big Moose Inn offers free use of our canoes, kayaks and paddle boats to all of our overnight guests. If a game of checkers is more your speed, why not enjoy them on our floating gazebo dock, one of three docks the Big Moose Inn offers our guests. ... more   less
