My family and I had dinner in the dining room on a Sunday night. Service was attentive at first but server seemed inexperienced or new. Took our appetizer order quickly but waited at least a half hour to order entrees. One major downside was the flies that were flying around our heads for the entire meal.. Very annoying. But the...

My husband and I try to get up to Van Auken's at least once a year on the Adirondack Scenic Train ride. the experience has changed over the years (some better than others) but our most recent trip last week was all good. The little lady behind the bar, despite being mainly single handed with a train load of 300... More

Van Auden's Inne is one of those kind of places that will make heads turn when people are driving past. The place is calling to you..."Look at me! I'm a really cool old Inn beside the railroad tracks...I have a history!" And, so you stop by and grab a snack or a drink, and, if the weather isn't too chilly,... More

We were right across the street at the ADK railroad and ran over to get a bite to eat...super fast and efficient staff. Food was fast and FRESH- we had salads that ALL the dressings were homemade...AND the beers cold. The chicken and meats on the salads were perfect- super fresh- the chicken sandwich awesome. The calamari not so much...BUT... More

Stayed one night and should have just camped like my boyfriend wanted to. Bed sagged and carpet is old. At 5:00 when we went into our room, music blared from the open kitchen window below us. My boyfriend had to go down two times to ask them to turn it down. The eventually did, but we still had to close... More

We recently stayed at Van Auken's Inne during a trip to Old Forge to start wedding planning. It was really old and charming. Our room was clean and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable. Yes, Van Auken's is OLD but that's part of the charm. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, even recommending locations that we might want to... More

When arriving I was pleasantly surprised by what we found. Judging by the other reviews of course. This is a rustic inn, built in 1891, what more would you expect! Large front porch for sitting and enjoying the view! The rooms are a little dated, however for the age of the Inn I think that they are just lovely, bed... More

Booked here last minute, for the price its not bad. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Ate lunch at the bar and the food was average for bar food. Its an old building so if you are looking for something modern don't go here. It was clean and comfy. The bar is below you so you hear the noise... More

We were on a cross-country motorcycle trip from Michigan to Maine and this was the much-anticipated last stop on our journey before heading home. My husband had worked for months on this trip and had spoken with the Inne and we were really excited about staying in such a historic old building. They really hyped up their Thursday night seafood... More
