Stayed here 2 nights. Place is ok but needs some major updating and improvement on service. The office and restaurant are hardly open. Our room was pretty clean but the grounds are dirty and Definitely not kept up. Probably won't come again.

WE stayed here 2 nights for a wedding nearby. Yes, the facility was older and had some areas in need in repair. But it was obvious that the owners took pride in their property. We had a King room with a jacuzzi that was charming. The weather was horrible so we could not take advantage of the dock and outdoor... More

Spent 2 nights in a lodge room memorial day weekend. Room was clean and bright, beautiful view of the lake. Bathroom was clean but the shower was small. This is an older hotel with charm. Service at the pub was good, we only had drinks so I can't comment on the food. I absolutely would come here again.

I will never stay at this place again. The cabins were shabby and getting service was a nightmare. I have a photo of the hole in the ceiling in our bathroom! If there was a spot to upload, I would not hesitate to share it with you.

Our ceiling had a huge crack in it and was leaking water all over the floor of the bathroom, there was no internet service, and we rented a jacuzzi room, but did not have running water. To top it all off, when we were waiting for our water to be fixed, we went out to breakfast and they threatened to... More

Best Dam Karaoke Bar in Ole Forge! Friendly people willing to help you in anyway they can! The foods good, beers cold, and it is one hell of an atmosphere. I would recommend this resort to anybody looking for a great time with friends! Johnny Cakes rendition of Ray Charles "Georgia" was inspiring and almost brought a tear to my... More

I took my boys to Old Forge for snowmobiling and we went to The North Woods Inn because of its great location on the lake. If you want to be on the lake for activities and the view this is the place to go but don't expect top level lodging, service and food. Our stay was great for what we... More

It's unfortunate, this is a beautiful location and I can see why people would enjoy the outdoor venue for a wedding but the rooms are disgusting. I actually gave it a second try last year thinking that they've made improvements but it was worse than the first time.

Our group has stayed here the past 3-4 years in the fall for meetings. It has always been pretty decent and I had previously stayed in the main lodge. Upon check in we went to the room we had assigned in one of the out buildings. It had no tub and my wife really likes a bath tub. I went... More
