This is a great bargain if there ever was one. Room is fairly spacious, bed comfy, coffee maker uses good coffee, everything is pretty clean, owner is delightful, and I wanted to steal BamBam the loving bulldog. My husband also enjoyed the free breakfast foods (I was just pleased with the unending availability of good coffee). Quick access to Whiteface... More

I'll admit- we're Al and Alicia groupies. My husband has stayed at the Mountain Brook Lodge almost every year since 2006, and thankfully he's kept that tradition since I married him. Al and Alicia are great- almost relentless in their desire to make sure your stay is perfect, constantly working to improve the property, and genuinely kind and caring about... More

We recently spent a family vacation at this lodge and rented 3 rooms. Our room was closer to the office while the other two where in another section. The two rooms in the other section adjoined which was convenient and both had bunk beds which the kids enjoyed. All of the rooms had a rustic appeal with knotty pine walls.... More

Linda, I am very surprised and saddened by your review. You stayed in a couples room. Your family stayed in the adjoining family rooms. Not once did your family mention low water pressure. If they had I would have corrected it. They always seemed happy with the level of service we provided them. You didn't comment on how I did... More

Felt like home. We arrived late, and tired, 3 couples on our Harley's on our way home. We were greeted by Al, who did everything to make our stay perfect. Definitely the best place we stayed at on our 12 day road trip. Thanks Al

We are from Ontario, Canada and travelling in the States right now is financially difficult so we chose the Mountain Brook Lodge for the price. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and the owner, Al, showed concern about how much the stay would be in Canadian funds. He showed us to our room and demonstrated use of the air... More

We stayed at Mountain Brook last March during spring skiing season at Whiteface Mountain. Basic and rustic, very clean lodge. Al and Alicia are the nicest people you can imagine. We asked for late (5PM) check-out ; no problem, no extra charge. Great continental breakfast included in the price. Overall, excellent value and location, just couple of miles from the... More

Mountain Brook Lodge epitomizes Adirondack rustic charm. The inn keeper is possibly the most hospitable person I have ever met in the hotel business. At night the hotel guests, ranging from age 19 to about 70, gathered and enjoyed a bonfire with Al and his adorable bulldog. I found that several of the guests plan a vacation to this motel... More

I was wondering how anything on TripAdvisor could have this consistent of good reviews, but yep, they were all accurate. Price and location were main factors in my decision, and that's where I started looking for Adirondack lodging,--I researched 10 different places that met my criteria--but it kept coming back to this property. I wanted my kids to experience a... More

If you want a great place to stay while visiting the Adirondacks, this is definitely a great option. The owners Alicia and Al make you feel at home right away. They were really helpful in getting us oriented to where the "must see" places are. The only negatives, breakfast could be insufficient for some as its almost all prepackaged food.... More
