“Great Hospitality and Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

We just had a great weekend at Cedarwood. Shirley is a wonderful hostess--and she can really cook! We had wonderful breakfasts, but I was really smitten with a gluten-free rhubarb pie that she made for us. Simply delicious. She pointed us to a great local restaurant and some great parks and trails during our stay. This is a hidden gem and a great value.

A nice room, large bathroom, personable hosts and surprising, gourmet breakfasts, all in a very serene rural setting. The quiet at night is outstanding! Nearby North Creek (5 miles) offered a nice selection of restaurants and we found the location ideal for short day trips (to Lake George, for example).

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Cedarwood B&B. Our experience matched our expectations that were based on previous reviews. Louis and Sharalee are excellent hosts. The location is secluded yet close to many exciting outdoor activities. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast which sustained us through a day of skiing at nearby Gore Mountain. We hope to return during the summer.

Down-home country charm at its best. Clean, friendly, helpful, beautiful, and a backyard full of sculpture. We all (4) loved it.

We had a wonderful time at Cedarwood B&B. The setting is beautiful, the house is historic, and Louis and Sharalee are great hosts. We went swimming in the nearby lake, rafting in the Hudson, and enjoyed a fire at night that Louis built. The food at breakfast and afternoon snacks are great. We hope to be back!

Butternut squash flan, tomato aspic, poached eggs over spinach beds – all dishes rendered from farm-fresh ingredients including vegetables grown in backyard gardens. Breakfasts at Cedarwood House are simply spectacular, and often favorably unique, along with the more traditional French toast (with homemade bread) and bacon and eggs. Of the many B&Bs sampled across the country, this one rates # 1 for breakfast, hands down. The magazine-cover morning meals are a perfect way to start a soul-gratifying Adirondack adventure wherever this takes you. At the end of the day, more homemade delights await you – local orchard apple pie, banana bread that surely has won an award somewhere, and from-scratch chocolate cookies, to name a few. The coffee and tea are always available throughout the day, and in the cooler months, a fireplace blazes, making the warm hospitality of the house even warmer. And for the perfect country touch, Rufus the cat, the gray guardian of the manor, will cozy in to you with silky fur and witty purr when you least expect it (except in the rooms where he is not allowed).

The 1890s house is full of history as owners Louis and Sharalee meant it to be. Adirondack guidebooks and mountain literature are abundant to help you plan your perfect outing and for pure inspiration. Jeanne Robert Foster’s Neighbors of Yesterday is on every nightstand for immersive reading. Dunkley Falls is right down the road at Weavertown for a serene waterside picnic, and the Hudson River seems to envelop you on all sides. For the more adventurous, a steep trail climb to the summit of Crane Mountain at nearby Johnsburg will have you pumping your fists at 4,000 feet in crisp, silent victory.

For dinner, check out Barvino’s in North Creek just a stone’s throw away. The imported beer selection and choice of great wines are unusual for this area. And try the shrimp and grits or the gnocchi for the just-right complement to good beer and wine.

Back at Cedarwood, meander out to the north forty and visit Louis’ folksy sculpture garden with original works including a reliquary field of planted half canoes and carefully placed wooden statues, a true Adirondack shrine. The garden is a reflection of Louis and Sharalee’s creative minds and delightfully eccentric personalities. They are great B&B hosts – always warm and willing to converse, but giving their guests space to fashion their own Adirondack adventure and connect with this magnificent top-of-the-world land. And did I say they could cook?
