We rented cabin 7B for two nights on Valentine's Day weekend in February 2015. The cabin was clean, the price was fair, the heat worked almost too well, and the fireplace was a perfect touch. The cabin was right on the lake and the view was amazing. We will definitely be coming here again.

We were on our annual leaf peeping tour of the Adirondacks and always just wing it when it comes time to find a room. We stayed here because it was available at a fair price ($85). We stayed in unit #16, a one bedroom with a kitchen and bathroom. We were not on the lake but could see it from... More

The 'Honeymoon' cabin is located on a beautiful small pond in Ray Brook, NY. The cabin did have a nice fireplace & the view from the deck was absolutey beautiful. However the cabin smelled musty & there was mold in the bathroom & on the walls. Even on low the ceiling fan above the bed it was so wobbly we... More

I stayed here twice this winter with my boyfriend and we will definitely go back. The cabins are older so if you want 5 star service this isn't the place for you. It was perfect for us. It's clean, has a fireplace, and has a deck that overlooked the lake. The people at the front desk were very nice and... More

Very cozy cute place. If you didn't like it it's because you are a citiot who comes up north and thinks it's going to be like the city. The people are very nice, deliver your wood every morning, and just leave you alone. Views are great. Perfect spot between Lake Placid and Saranac Lake. It's rustic, but that's why you... More

My wife and i decided to just up and take a weekend last minute trip, ended up at the sherwood forest inn. We loved it! Price was great, views excellent and cabin 9 very cute and cozy. I have read some of the other reviews and have to disagree with them. They are a very nice rustic cabin for a... More

My wife and I recently stayed in cabin 7 and had a great night, I asked to see the room before checking-in the $98 cabin and my wife and I were happy to see the rustic fireplace and private deck overlooking a very serene lake. Having grown up with a camp on Saratoga Lake we can appreciate their little piece... More

We took a quick, unplanned trip to Lake Placid so most everything was booked seeing it was the middle of summer. We opted for a cabin with a small kitchen and bathroom. Cabins are basic, probably built in the 60s, and have basic, dated ammenities. It served our purpose for one nights stay. The cabins are located on a small... More

We love this place! I don't know how someone can not. The views are to die for, the rooms are everything you need and the owners are lovely. It is not the Four Seasons but it is a wonderful place that I would highly recommend for someone looking for simple quiet accommodations with a view at a great value.
