The lodge is a perfect place for folks who are in town to ski or visit Gore Mountain. It is the closest hotel to the mountain (~ 10 minutes) and it's ergonomically set up to accommodate skiers. Racks to dry coats & gloves above the heaters. Heated yurts (tents) to leave your skis and boots overnight as well as a... More

Great Place to stay. Highly recommend this hotel/lodge. - Rooms are well designed, all renovated and very comfortable. - The property is very close to Gore Mountain for skiing. Not quite walking distance but a short car ride. - The proprietor, Matt, and brother and his wife are great. They are very helpful and willing to go the extra mile... More

My friends and I traveled from Brooklyn to celebrate our good friend Jeremy's 30th birthday. Without much knowledge of Gore Mountain or Gore Mountain Lodge, I was very presently surprised at our lodgings. Mark and his family - the proprietors of the Lodge - are extremely friendly and welcoming. Not only this, but they did an excellent job renovating what... More

Perfect place to stay during my first ski trip! Extraordinarily friendly staff, the rooms have everything you need (including hand warmers for the slopes) and the yurt seals the deal :) I would definitely recommend staying here.

A quick family trip to ski Gore mountain for 2 days resulted in a wonderful stay at Gore Mountain Lodge. What I gather must have been an old standard motel has been transformed into a cool, funky, eclectic mountain retreat. The rooms are large and most importantly CLEAN! Having worked in the hospitality industry for over 15 years I am... More

If you are heading up to Gore Mountain for outstanding Adirondack wilderness adventure, then don't miss this gem in the woods. Beautifully and tastefully reconditioned, this family-owned lodge offers 5 minute convenience by shuttle to Gore Mountain for excellent skiing and snowboarding. Yes, that's right, you don't even have to drive to go skiing/boarding every day. Each room is comfortable,... More

This place has a nice, family run, relaxed vibe. The decore is an awesome mix of Miami chic, Colorado rustic and IKEA. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the rooms were clean and updated, everything worked and the beds were comfy. There's complementary donuts, coffee and hot chocolate in the mornings, which was nice but I wished... More

beautiful setting, closest accommodations to Gore mountain, surrounded by trails for hiking,snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were spacious enough for us and we'll organized with racks and shelves for all the ski gear. The yurt heated by a woodstove was a fun place to hang out, play... More

Room was very clean and comfortable. The Parobek family were very welcoming and friendly. The lodge is very close to Gore. The Yurts were fun to hang out in. We will definately make a return visit. Thanks for making our stay so nice!

This is a very nice place to stay if you're planning a trip to Gore. Gore Mountain doesn't have a hotel on site so this hotel is one of the nearest spots. The family that runs the place is friendly and accommodating. We are planning another trip next year. The rooms have coffee makers, flat screen tv's and refrigerators.
