We planned on staying here for a day on our way back to St. Louis from an extended road trip through Canada and Vermont. I chose Garnet Hill Lodge based on the promise of its Tripadvisor reviews, and am so pleased I did. The lodge itself is a beautifully maintained trip back in time to the 1930's, and the view... More

We booked a Saturday evening with friends at the lodge. We have two kids, a girl age 6 and boy age 8. They have three boys. What I really appreciate is that although you cannot check in until 4, you have use of their property, equipment, etc the entire time you are there. We arrived around noon on Saturday and... More

My husband and I joined our friends for a stay recently at Garnet Hill Lodge. Upon check-in we were informed that we had been upgraded to a room with a balcony. It was well worth the upgrade! Our balcony had a beautiful view of the nearby mountains and 13th Lake. At night we could hear the loons calling back and... More

My family came for the special Mother's Day menu and even before entering, we were impressed by the beautiful view of Thirteenth Lake. We also noticed the entrances to cross country ski trails of which we found are numerous. The inside of the comfortable and cozy lodge is what you would expect in the Adirondacks and we imagined sitting around... More

Just spent a blissful 4 days at Garnet Hill. The view from our balcony room alone was worth the drive from Brooklyn. I am SO glad it has great new owners because this place is completely charming. It retains it's 1930's Adirondack feel while being cheerful and bright (& with great wifi). With our teenage son we took full advantage... More

Could not sleep due to loud voices from dining room! Would not recommend this Lodge to anyone planning a quiet ADK get away. The food was enjoyable and the service was good. The view from the Lodge is beautiful.

Dear Brian M, Thank you for your kind words regarding Garnet Hill Lodge despite the unfortunate incident you experienced regarding loud voices and laughter shortly after 10 pm. As I said to you in person, our policy is very clear in our guest information packet, and is emphasized by staff, that quiet time is to be observed after 10 pm.... More

This was our second time going to Garnet Hill. We had a magical time, just as we did the first time. Donna is the best, she is so accommodating and provided the best experiance a couple could possibly have. I had some flowers shipped before hand and she made sure they were in vases and arranged all around our room.... More
