We've been going here every July for the past five or six years and it just keeps getting better. The owners take great care of the place . In the past, we've stayed at other places but this is by far the best! Everthing is ok

Looking for the best hotel in Wilmington at the base of Whiteface , go to the Trout. Rooms are clean, comfortable and while it looks like an old 50's motel it has everything you want in 2014. Restaurant is both a fine dining ad the lower is a pub no to be missed. Want to fish,eat or drink. Head to... More

We enjoy the comfort of the hotel and being so close to the Ausable is great. Nothing better than exploring the ADK's then sitting in the chairs by the river and relaxing. A bonus to be able to walk to the wonderful restaurants (awesome food). This has become our "go to place" to stay!

My wife and I spent a wonderful getaway weekend at the Hungry Trout to celebrate her birthday. Upon check in, we were greeted with a warm welcome and directed to a beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean room. During our stay, we used the well maintained pool, which affords a great view of Whiteface Mountain. The atmosphere is quiet and upscale.... More

I came up to The Hungry Trout for a weekend of fly fishing the Ausable River. My stay lasted 2 days and in that time we had an overall excellent experience. Jerry, the owner, greeted us with a smile and promptly handed us the keys to the room. The room was clean and the view was of the wooded area... More

This review is on the fly fishing experience we had - not a stay in the resort. I could not find anything for Hungry Trout Fly Fishing - however is part of the resort. So, we were geared up in waders, boots and equipment, ready for our adventure to begin on the Ausable river in hope of making a catch.... More

We chose this location as our accommodation to complement a 3 day ski trip to Whiteface Mountain. The proximity to the mountain is very good - it takes less than 3 minutes to drive to the base lodge. We stayed in the "deluxe" rooms, one that had a recent renovation to the bathroom. It was a modest 90 dollars plus... More

We drove up from Toronto for a weekend ski trip @ Whiteface Mountain and were very pleased with every aspect of out stay. The rooms, dining, and location blew away all of our expectations. Jerry and his staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and did a great job during our stay. The food in the dining room restaurant was very... More

We stayed in a renovated room for I believe $10 extra. This is well worth the extra money cause it is clean and functional. The beds are very comfy; maybe they are the same for all rooms. Very quiet, and nice view of the White Face Mtn in the bay window. The food is a little expensive, not unlike other... More

We stayed two nights as part of a weekend package with the Santa's Workshop attraction. With the package you got two nights accommodations at the Hungry Trout with Dinner Friday and Saturday night and Breakfast Saturday and Sunday. Also, Santa's Workshop had set up entertainment for the kids each night. When we arrived Friday afternoon precipitation had just started but... More

The day this wonderful man arrived at our facility, a major ice storm hit our community that lasted three days and nights. It devastating trees, roads, power lines and, of course, driveways and sidewalks. It was the worst weather event here in two decades. This facility spent $2,000 in plowing and sanding fees in three days trying to keep up... More
