I have traveled to Old Forge NY in the winter over the past 20 years. Being an avid snowmobiler, this area offers excellent groomed snowmobile trail systems and a variety of trail, lake and road riding. It is also a reasonable drove from where I have lived in New Jersey and now Delaware. I have stayed at various lodges in the old forge area. Since I travel either alone or with other person, I do not require a house rental or multi room accommodations. Therefore, I have stayed in a few of the area motels and cottages. There are a lot of decent and clean places to stay in Old Forge, but Christy’s Motel offers a few things which set it apart from other lodges or motels. Christy’s has clean and warm rooms. They offer rooms with a variety of accommodations, from one bedroom to an efficiency unit. I opted to stay in a normal room, since my reason to be there is have a good place to sleep. I eat at local restaurants. Over the past years, Old Forge has set up web cams and offers other web information as to current and forecasted weather conditions. Steve, the owner of Christy’s motel, has a web cam on his web page and keeps a current condition update via a video clip. There is also a blog where travelers offer additional comments. Steve had been at the forefront of catering to the snowmobiler. Not only does he post updated videos, he actually gets out on the trails himself. He is able to give you a true area condition update. That is by far an extremely important service that Steve provides. A large amount of other area motel owners do not even snowmobile and can not give you any true condition information. Steve is also very accommodating and wants to make sure that your stay at Christy’s is as perfect as possible. While there are no true 5-star accommodations in Old Forge, for a snowmobiling trip, Steve offers the best catering and assistance that I have found to date. Give Christy’s a try. You will not be disappointed.
