Always feel like I'm going home when at Starlight. Sari, the owner makes you feel welcome and comfortable, and the staff are all very helpful & personable. The food is way too delicious! The lake is serene! A beautiful area! I would never leave Inn at Starlight Lake if I didn't have to!!! It is where I go when I... More

We stayed for New Years Eve and New Years Day in 2 different rooms. The first was somewhat dated and small. The second was more up to date and also small. Both rooms were clean, comfortable and had pleasant views of the lake. Both had bathrooms that were roomy and featured tubs as well as showers. The breakfast was OK,... More

We wanted somewhere to stay on route upper NY state. The Inn came up as an attractive alternative to routine motels. It's a lovely setting by a small lake (pond), surrounded by trees. But not especially good value. We had two rooms away from the main hotel building. Cosy but not especially comfortable. Rather cramped, in fact. Mid October the... More

We have eaten there many times over the years, including three times now for Thanksgiving dinner. The food varies from average to very good. The drinks are consistently good. Since the inn is quite old, I think it was built in 1909, it has a certain charm. Very cozy and family oriented. I always like to go there. I can't... More

The inn was a leftover from 1960. It was in sore need of maintenance and updating. The decorating was terrible. While the restaurant was good, the rooms were outdated and the electric wall heater made it impossible to sleep.

This place was awful. Our cabin smelled like skunk. Everything was old, dirty, and worn out. To top it all off it was grossly expensive for the dive it was, $325 for the night. If you are ever near this place stay away!

We attended a family wedding at the Inn at Starlight Lake in early October, which is a lovely setting. We have family history with this spot, as an aunt and uncle managed the property many years ago. The hotel is small and located by a lovely lake, and also has cabins where folks stay. We did not stay at this... More

This is a 115 year old Inn. it is not the new 5 million dollar hotel down on the high way. We had a GREAT time, If you are looking for a laid back, relaxed paced , you need to go here. We were greeted by the owner, she gave us a brief tour, took our stuff to the room.... More

I think the owner of the "Inn" is conducting an experiment of how long she can go without doing any maintenance to anything and seeing how long people keep coming. The rooms are dirty, and many in disrepair. The row boats don't have any oars, and the sail and paddle boats are filled with water. Also, many of the pictures... More

If it were possible to give this place lower than a "1" I would have. Like another reviewer said, "WHAT A DUMP" I couldn't agree more. The place looks like it is about to fall down. It is located on what looks like a rainwater retention pond, calling it a lake is a huge stretch. This dilapidated property looks like... More
