The Lodge is only three minutes from Gore Mtn base and perfect for skiers. Renovations combine Adirondack charm with modern functionality for skiers. If you want a clean, friendly, and functional place for a North Creek/Gore ski trip I highly recommend. Great for ski families. I am seeing more and more Gore Mountain Lodge stickers on helmets at the mountain.

Just returned home from a ski trip to Gore mountain and stayed for two nights at the Gore Mountain Lodge. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation close in proximately to the mountain operated by someone of the nicest people you will meet! Our room was great and one could tell immediately that the new owners put... More

Just returned from 2 days skiing at Gore and had an incredible visit! We loved this place and have already started recommending the Lodge to our friends. It exceeded our expectations. Our room was very clean and extremely comfortable and included all the amenities that one could want. The owners were extremely hospitable and friendly. Our son quickly became friends... More

We came up for two days of sking at Gore and it was perfect. The owners were as nice as could be. We came with our two children and had a blast playing chess in the yurt. The rooms were newly renovated and clean. The lodge is literally next to Gore mountain. Highly recommended.

Hi Derek, Glad to know you and your family enjoyed their stay with us at The Lodge. The yurts are a great addition this year at Gore Mountain Lodge and allow for more of an après ski atmosphere while the children can play board games. Thanks for letting everyone know how close we are to Gore Mountain. You really can’t... More

I returned to the Lodge for Thanksgiving weekend and brought the entire family. My experience exceeded my already high expectations. Mother nature blessed us with a foot of snow and the owners went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The Parobeck family made us feel like we were part of their extended family.

Jim, It was great to host your family at the Lodge. And I'm glad you were able to have some Turkey with us on Friday, since you all missed out on a Thanksgiving feast. We all had an excellent time with your whole family. I'm glad my nephews had somebody to show the Mt. to, and your boys were pushed... More

We just finished our one-night stay at Gore Mountain Lodge and highly recommend this hotel. The property looks like a road-side motel, but the rooms felt like a boutique hotel or bed and breakfast. Great bed, soft linens, plush towels and fun, interesting furnishings - really nice. We met the young family who own and operate the hotel - they... More

The place may not look very luxurious from the outside, but my wife and I were presently surprised with the room!! The beds were very, very comfortable, I had the best sleep in months there. Also, the decor was very nice. Bathroom was great, with a great shower and towels that were perfect! We had a bonfire at night and... More

We are happy to hear we exceeded your expectations with our recent renovations. All of the beds, linens, and pillows are brand new which probably contributed to your “best sleep in months”. When you need to escape to the Adirondack’s next time we hope you will choose The Lodge at Gore Mountain again. - The Parobeck Family More

The remodeling on this place was terrific. Love the non-carpeted floors. The place really felt clean overall. We got a room that had a king & bunk beds. This worked great for our family since our sons do not want to sleep in the same bed. I don't know why more hotels don't do this! Location was great for our... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to North Creek two years ago this month, when the Lodge was under different management. It was the epitome of a motel, only the essentials. Since then the previous owners sold this motel to a new family. When we traveled back this summer, we were at a lost for words. This new motel looked NOTHING... More

Having left booking a place for the night in the Adirondack Mountains Area a little late, we booked Gore Mountain Lodge last minute on line as a stopover between Canada and New York City.
