We took Amtrak's Adirondack Special, which is passage for two, for a price of 1 from Montreal to NYC, provided you stop in Ticonderoga. No B&Bs in Ti so stayed at Best Western. Room was quiet, clean and well appointed. Pasta Night (Tuesdays) is wonderful with a chef who cooks up to your specific choices including type of pasta, all you can eat...yummy. The self-serve complimentary breakfast is also extensive with everything from cereal, to pancakes, to eggs and sausages. Coffee sucked though.
You'd think the hotel, the only place to stay would enable Amtrak tourists to be picked up and delivered to the train station, which is 3 miles out of town in the middle of nowhere. We got off the train, Cdn cell phones don't work, so tried the Bell phone which was dead. Walked 1 kilometre to a paybooth for Fort Ticonderoga and attendent kindly allowed me to call hotel, who I asked to call a cab. We had to walk back to the train station the next day, again no shuttle available.
If this somewhat depressed little town wants to build its tourism on the Fort they should work on better infrastructure to make it easy for train visitors. The Fort is worth half to a full day, interesting history, georgous location, authentic staffing with tours and demonstrations. Learned lots about US/Canada history.
