My wife and I need a place to stay in Old Forge last year and decided to stay here. It looked promising and we like to give the local businesses a chance over the national guys. When we arrived our rooms were ready but there was no power. we proceed to get settled in. The room seemed nice enough until... More

The staff was great and very helpful. Beautiful location. We stayed in the main lodge, and the room was very large but outdated. Bathroom was small, but had plenty , large number of spiders and their webs inside and outside the room. The driveway down to the place, and I do mean down, is difficult to navigate, many holes and... More

Was definitely a little worried with the other reviews. Upon arrival, we saw the door to our room was badly damaged and, indeed, did not secure. We went back to the office and were given a different room in the main building without issue. Although the rooms are no frills, and definitely have their quirks, they were clean and comfortable...

One of the worst places I've ever stayed. Open signs all over but no one available at breakfast time to get the "free" breakfast I was told about. The door closed but did not lock. No tv remote. Best things were the comfort of the bed & the towels. I think the pool was empty & covered.

It's a shame that this beautiful location along the shores of 4th lake continues to head in the wrong direction in terms of cleanliness, maintenance and service. Clearly the current ownership is (and has been) over their heads with the upkeep of this facility and is thus looking to sell and move on. Don't get me wrong, I understand that... More

This resort is in a great location with a beautiful view. We have stayed at the North Woods before in the main building. The room was large, clean, & comfortable, but the main porch was right outside our door. This was shared by other visitors & wasn't a private setting especially if they were smokers. This last time we stayed... More

I was skeptical booking a room here based off of the reviews. I even brought my own cleaner in case it was bad. But honestly, this is my story. Yes, it needs a little updating. Yes, they need more staff. But for the few who are picking out minor things like the wallpaper peeling ? That happens at home people,... More

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
