Our stay at Fern Lodge was to mark my husband's birthday ~ and we could not have chosen a better place! Susan was very warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The house is beautiful, wonderfully furnished and placed in the most stunning setting. This truly is a very special place. We hope to visit again soon!

My newly wed husband and I stayed in the Forest suite. This room was by far amazing! Located on the lower level and the closest to the in lodge theatre, pool table bar and backyard hot tub. The atmosphere is very romantic and cozy, by far was well worth every penny. We loved it.

The house, amenities, scenery, and people could not have made our honeymoon more special. Sharon and Susan were so friendly. They made our stay feel like home and prevented us from lifting a finger for ourselves. The scenery was so beautiful we spent a day in, enjoying all the lodge had to offer. We are looking forward to a return...

Excellent stay. The Forest room was top notch. Susan was very accommodating and her breakfasts were great. We loved walking around the property and traveling to Lake Placid and the surrounding mountains.

All guest accommodations have king-size beds, large stone fireplaces and wonderful lake and / or mountain views. All rooms have private luxury baths with deep-soaking Jacuzzi tubs, and all rooms have refrigerators. The nightly rate for Adirondack lodging at our Southern Adirondack Mountain resort includes an unforgettable breakfast, an evening boat tour of Friends Lake (seasonal) with wine and hors d'oeuvres, a full "help yourself" honor bar, nightly turndown service with chocolate truffles, Wi-Fi and a wide variety of on-site activities.

In the evening, gather round the out door fireplace on the screened in porch.

Use our kayaks or lounge in the sun before a dip in the lake. The lake is well known for small mouth bass fishing. There is very nice hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing right here on the property.Our beautiful 24' ELCO electric launch is used for a late afternoon boat tour of beautiful Friends Lake complete with beverages and hors d'oeuvres.
