3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nothing wrong with the property per se - the people were very nice, the breakfast was excellent, and the room was in fine condition - our names were even written on our door. But, it certainly wasn't over the top (with the exception of the amazing, amazing shower). Seemed like a $200/night B&B (or AirBnbB, as it actually a lived-in... More

The hosts, Sharon and Greg provide exceptional service and amenities at this gem on the shores of Friends Lake. The rooms are filled with everything you will need for your stay. Our room was decorated in true Adirondack style with outstanding views of the water, from the French doors leading to the patio. The exterior decks and patios provide sun... More

My husband and I stayed at the Fern Lodge in mid-August and could not have been more pleased. We stayed in the Forest Room, which was divine -- jacuzzi tub, fireplace, amazing shower (not even sure what you call that but check out the pictures on their site), patio right off our room. Breakfasts overlooking beautiful Friend's Lake were delicious... More

We loved every second of our stay. The Lodge is beautiful and the grounds are incredible. Breakfast was second to none. Hidden away on a quiet spot on Friends Lake. To say it was perfect would be an understatement. It was more than we could have imagined to make our special day incredible. We felt so welcome, and everyone was... More

Nothing left to detail, everything you could want. 5 rooms, King bed, fireplace, huge jacuzzi and seated steam shower, porch; huge gorgeous common rooms, theater, multiple fire pits, hot tub, decks, I could go on and on. Sharon is awesome and made us feel so well pampered and at home. Highly recommend.

My husband and I eloped at the Fern Lodge. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The location was perfect and the staff and the lodge were incredibly kind and accommodating. Big thanks to Susan for taking so many pictures for us! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful spacious rooms. Delicious and filling breakfasts. Quite, relaxing, and private outdoor areas. Perfect distance from crowded villages. Crystal clear and warm lake water. Lots of non motor powered options for getting out on the water.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our luxury Adirondack lodging includes a choice of five intimate guest rooms that are uncommonly comfortable ~ both rustic and elegant, even magnificent.Other hotels in the Adirondacks cannot live up to our resort standards. 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. Consider our private getaway for your elegant Adirondack wedding or honeymoon.In addition to luxury Adirondack lodge style accommodations, enjoy relaxing in the mission-influenced classically elegant Adirondack Great room with vaulted log ceilings and magnificent stone fireplace. In the evening, gather round the out door fireplace on the screened in porch. The ground floor of our hotel on Friends Lake walks out to the lake features many relaxing sitting areas, a pool table, bar, wine cellar, a game table, a nine-person theatre, a sauna and exercise equipment (Bowflex, free-weights, an elliptical, medicine ball, Swiss ball).Our 70-acre wooded property borders on pristine Friends Lake. 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. Fern Lodge is unmatched among romantic Upstate NY hotels. ... more   less
