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. The Lodge was easy to find and on our arrival was greeted by the owner .... He was very friendly and showed us to our room... More

I'm glad you enjoyed the stay at GML. Turned out to be a busy weekend, but as you experienced, the evenings become tranquil on Peaceful Valley Road. Hope you enjoyed NYC and your return trip to Toronto through the Finger Lakes. - Matt Parobeck More

We stayed at the Gore Mountain Lodge a few weeks ago and loved it. The rooms have beautiful very functional and perfectly scaled furniture. The beds and bedding were very comfortable and we all had a great nights sleep. We loved it and will stay again in the winter to ski!

I stayed at the Gore Mountain Lodge in mid-summer and found it ideally located for hiking and the nearby town. The nights were quiet, rooms clean and staff friendly and helpful. I actually forgot an expensive sweatshirt there, and the lodge found it and shipped it back no charge. It's a 30 minute drive from heart of Lake George, minus... More

My friends and I were coming up to go white water rafting a few weekends ago. (End of July). Everything in the area was booked and Gore accommodated us without hesitation.

We stayed here for four nights in July of 2014. Despite being close to the road, we has a very quite and peaceful stay. The room is decent in size with a more modern décor than the usual for this type of accommodation. The toilet is good in size and has bath tub and shower. Free generic shampoo and conditioner...
