We've stayed two summers in a row at Motel Long Lake and think it's the perfect spot to relax. The beach and free kayaks/canoes on the property make it easy for families with young children. The cabins are spotless and well-stocked with wonderful views of the lake. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful if you have any problems. Bonus,... More

Highly recommend the motel part of this wonderful location in Long Lake NY. I have not stayed in the cottages; but toured them and they are very well kept and furnished. Room 16 was clean and comfortable with all appliances working. The beds are great! The screened porch with padded Adirondack chairs looks out on pure Adirondack nature - trees... More

We stayed in Cabin 2 (the Roost) last night. The staff were super, the cabin spotless, the use of canoes/kayaks free was so great! Would stay there again! We booked at the last minute, and only for one night, but we were welcomed.

This is our second year staying at the Motel Long Lake and the visit was even better. we stayed in the motel - room #19 - right by the water. Although it's an old motel, the rooms have been renovated and it was super clean. We were there for the 4th of July and the management served a wonderful meal... More

We rented five cabins for a family gathering. The cabins are newly renovated with new stoves, microwaves, dishwasher, toasters etc. We cooked in most meals as the local restaurants are limited The staff really makes the place great. Calls for supplies and maintenance are happily and quickly answered No hesitations about coming back

We just came back from 4 rainy days in the Adirondack, but we had a lovely time! We returned to Motel Long Lake and Cottages after 3 years and it is still the cutest place ever: rooms are very clean (and ours was cozy but updated), small beach, deck with chairs, great fishing, paddling (free use) and the owners are...

Spent two nights at the Motel Long Lake cottage number 4 but toured all the cottages today and they are all wonderful. The group was my husband and I with two boys 11 and 12 and girl 10. We arrived at 11:30 p.m. and there was a note with directions waiting for us and it was seamless. The cabin was... More

My longtime partner, Ed, spent a lot of time in the Adirondacks with sons. He'll be 85 later this month, and has frequently reminisced about how much he loves this area and how much fun they had had. His middle son lives in our area, so I selected a weekend when Brian would be off work, and gave Ed a... More

Room was clean. Had a screened porch with refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom fixtures were very old but clean and functional. There are a half dozen first come first serve stock slips for your boat or pwc. There is space to park a couple boat trailers. There is plenty of trailer parking a five minute walk away at the state boat... More
