My wife and I came to the ADKS alone, without our three kids, to enjoy some "us" time. We booked a reservation at the Woods Inn for dinner. We arrived a bit early (good choice), and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset out back on the dock on the lake. The food we ordered was great, and the portion size was... More

We chose this venue for a fall wedding which just concluded yesterday, and we are certainly very happy that we did. Marie and Greg (owners) took such good care of us throughout the entire process. Greg was constantly maintaining the property while Marie made sure that every request we had was executed properly and in a timely manner. The weather... More

We were guests here for a wedding weekend. Terribly understaffed, one hand has no idea what the other is doing. Bartenders are awesome but everything else was awful. Actually overheard the owner lady speaking to one of her staff in an appalling offensive tone, I guess she didn't realize we heard her. No class whatsoever. Our family felt awful for... More

If you are looking for a four star resort to stay at in the ADK, this is not for you. If you are looking for a place along the lake, with restaurant and lake access, this is for you. Stayed here with husband, baby and dog and we had a ball using beach at property, soaking in the view, and... More

Just spent 4 nights here with the entire family, renting both cabins and 2 lakeside rooms. The location is great, and food in the Tavern is pretty good. We chose to call the accomodations "rustic". But this place needs to be cleaned up. For the entire long weekend, empty cases of beer were stacked behind the Tavern, in full view... More

cabin 25 $220 per night. Was supposed to be a mountain view. Couldnt see the mountain. Mold in shower. Bathroom smelled like urine. Insulation for AC was plastic bags. Peeling wallpaper. Lots of garbage out back. Loud karaoke nights from bar that never totally cleaned up used drink cups. Vents for heat covered with garbage bags.

The best part of our experience we had a room with a view of the lake. The service was good but lacking certain amenities. Example no one at the front desk after 5pm. It was difficult to open the door to the room with the key given. If you needed ice had to go to the tap room. Coffee pot... More

we didn't stay at north woods inn but went to the taproom. First we want to warn you about the driveway. Beware of the large hump. (1) To start off with inside ordered club soda but got tonic water (2) Ordered chicken wings to start but they arrived with the meal asked for x-crispy and they were far from that... More

This is listed as being in Old Forge, but is actually about 6 miles north of Old Forge, just outside of Eagle Bay. This used to be a nice place to go for a meal. I was dissappointed last year, but decided to stop again last week. Never again. When we got there we were told there was a problem... More

This place could be absolutely amazing. Maybe even the best place on this lake. It needs a major, major rehab and an actual hotel manager to get everyone and everything in order. My room smelled of 20 year old black mold. The carpets were disgusting, torn and moist. The linens and beds were old and dirty. The curtains smelled like... More
