I am not about long reviews, just straight forward so, Our hosts Sharon and Greg were wonderful, friendly and made us feel very at home from the minute we arrived until the last moment we stayed. We were on the main floor which was lovely and surprisingly quiet. The room was quite large and very comfortable. The shower is incredible!... More

After honeymooning at Fern Lodge two years ago, my wife and I were eager to return to one of our favorite vacation destinations. Our second trip to the Lodge was even better than the first. We enjoyed the fireplace in our gorgeous room, days kayaking, nights spent watching movies in the Lodge's home theatre, and local dinners that were simply... More

Loved this place! Can't wait to get back. Atmosphere was awesome, scenery beautiful, hospititality great, food was good, amenities plentiful and fun! One small issue is that the hot tub and the sauna seemed to not be working up to par when we went to use them, but that was remedied shortly after. Still excited to visit again.

An off-season, Monday through Wednesday, escape; we had the Lodge to ourselves with Sharon and her two dogs, Noche and Shadow. Sharon had great restaurant suggestions, plus detailed directions. Breakfasts were delicious. An excellent spot for privacy, relaxing and enjoying the Adirondacks.

We had such an amazing night away at the Fern Lodge!! The ONLY thing I would change is that, besides breakfast, there were no meals available on site. The stay was incredible!! Thank you!! We'll be back!

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
