We were a little hesitant about booking with North Woods based on past reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The room had more amenities then we were expecting. And the nearby hiking and shopping in Old Forge was convenient. Our stay was right before tourist season so we felt like we had the place to ourselves. The only downside was the pool wasn't ready for use due to it being the off-season. However we wouldn't think twice about returning again next year (especially if there was another Groupon ... hint hint!). We will definitely be recommending North Woods to our friends should they ask about places to stay in the Adirondacks. Thanks again.

We had two small dogs with us and stayed in a rOom that was dingy, but we heard from two other couples that their rooms were ok. Pool was not in service. Pancake special was strawberry pancakes for breakfast which were very reasonably priced. Piggy wings bar food delicious. Really enjoyed sitting on various small decks watching the lake

We just came home from our trip to North Woods Inn. We have stayed there 3 times in the past 3 months. Our 1st trip was the NYE's celebration and we just fell in love with the Inn and especially the staff. We spend our time snow shoeing in the winter and bike riding in the summer. All easily accessible from this location. The views of 4th Lake are outstanding. We truly enjoy our talks with the owners and staff. Byran is an excellent bartender and makes us feel at home. I highly recommend staying here if your in the area. They have all the amenities to make your trip extra special! They have great food specials but one staple for us is the pizza or shepards pie. Thank you Marie, Gregg, Bryan and Amy for making us feel right at home.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Inn have the best view of the lake from my opinion. We did stay in the king jacuzzi sui...

I stayed at the North Woods Inn several times this past winter.The location is excellent for snowmobiling because it is directly on 4th Lake and across the road from Trail 5. I stayed in the main lodge and also the mountain view rooms. Each time the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The rooms in the main lodge were cozy and have great views of 4th Lake. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. We had many great times in the Tap Room ( restaurant / bar). Bartenders were great and the food was excellent. I have stayed in many places in Old Forge but this is the place I will be staying from now on. My family and I are looking forward to staying at The North Woods Inn this summer.

I stayed at Northwoods during SnowFest 2012 for a couple of days during the event. I have to say I was very pleased. The rooms were spacious, there was cable TV, The bathrooms, alittle small, had plenty of towels and hot water to go around and were very clean. There was a restaurant/bar on one end of the property, The Tap Room, which had great breakfast and dinner choices and to end the day it was nice to relax and have a few drinks. Also as big advantage to this inn as well was the snowmobile access, both from the lake and across the street making it accessible to downtown Old Forge without the use of my truck. Will definitely stay again!

Tip: We found in the room we were in that there were only 2 2-prong outlets. We ended up having a spare 3-way outlet tap with our equipment that we ended up cutting the ground prong off of to plug in our laptops, cell phones and boot warmers but it is heavily advised to bring a 2-3 prong converter with you as well as a power strip if you will have a lot to plug in.

We do have a few outlet converters in the office. We'll have to look into improving the outlet situation in rooms, people travel with so many more gadgets now than they used. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, hopefully we'll see you again soon!

We recently came to Old Forge New York for a snowmobile demo ride and stayed at Northwoods. The staff was very friendly and easy to deal with. The tap room down stairs had a very good vibe, and very friendly bar tender. Our rooms were clean, and the view was great. Also access to the snowmobile trail was a plus.
