“Enjoyable...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We enjoyed three meals here during our five night stay in the area. We ate once in the dining room and twice in the wine bar. Many of the starter options were the same on both menus. Those were actually what we enjoyed most and the atmosphere in the wine bar was much more casual and lively with excellent service. The lobster, scallop corn crepe and fennel ravioli were absolutely delicious. Fresh and full of interesting flavors. Good burger, pasta special and desserts. We ordered the pork loin and lamb entrees in the dining room. Both were tasty, but the lamb portion, as expected, was very small for my husband. Nice bread with olive oil served and extensive wine selection available. Would definitely recommend both experiences, but we preferred the wine bar option.

“Top notch,start to finish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We have stayed here and dined in both the main dining room and the bistro-bar area.it is unconditionally one of the top Adirondack experiences. Cozy, clean, friendly and all around wonderful experience. You pay for excellent service, and they deliver,going out of their was to please. Agreat wine list, different menu in the two rooms and a great bar selection. Difficult to find anything wronge about this five star B&B.

“Save your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Went there one Easter, paid a lot. Terrible service, substandard overpriced cold food. Go to McDonald and have a cheeseburger and it would be an improvement.

“Nice place for a fancy family meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

A good place to celebrate a family event. Great wine list and good menu, but the prices are up there. Check first to make sure you aren't going to be disappointed at how expensive it is. But a beautiful setting and good food.
