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.

The Fern Lodge is what I would describe as rustic luxury. On charming and beautiful friend's lake it has everything you would want in a B&B in the country. Big clean rooms, plenty of amenities (including canoes and kayaks) very nice grounds and boathouse and the nicest Inn owner/manager we have ever come across. The pictures on the website are... More

We go to Fern Lodge once a year and it never disappoints. They have the best breakfasts, lots to do on the lake, relax by the fire, and enjoy the hot tub. Rooms are luxurious! You can also hike around the lake or enjoy nearby hiking trails, bike, etc.

The Fern Lodge was the most awesome place I have ever stayed. The grounds were beautiful. Our room which was upgraded was very very clean. Breakfast each morning was great. The food was so good. We didn't want to leave. The last night there, we were taken on a tour of the lake in a boat. It was beautiful. Our... More

We go to the fern lodge every summer. It's a beautiful place. The rooms are large and clean. Sharon and her staff couldn't be nicer. They serve wine on a boat ride around the lake. Breakfast is always delicious. It's a special place.

My wife and I visited Fern Lodge after a few days in Saratoga Springs. The lodge is beautiful and Sharon, Greg, and Susan are wonderful hosts. Breakfast each morning was distinctive and delicious. The lake was clear and clean and the canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards were fun. And the lake tour on the electric boat was great. Highly recommend staying... More

The Fern Lodge is a cozy hideaway, with an impressive number of activities and amenities to get even a typical workaholic or bookworm out and about to enjoy nature. Staff are warm and helpful, the rooms are comfortably appointed. Will definitely go back when we have the opportunity to do so.

We stayed for our anniversary and our goal was to have a nice relaxing place to stay with outdoor activities. The Fern Lodge exceeded our expectations with the beautiful rooms, knowledgable staff and excellent hosts. We felt welcome from the very moment we walked through the door. Sharon greeted us with a glass of wine when we arrived and then... More

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.

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
