It was a treat to stay at a new place in an area I'm very familiar with. Extraordinarily friendly, helpful staff - the young man who helped me lug my suitcases out really didn't want to take a tip! I love the old-fashioned feel of this place, from the lobby/living room to the rooms. At the same time, I was... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2015

My family has a camp in Old Forge for 40+ years and Big Moose has always been the place to go for us when it comes time for a great meal, company and view. This past weekend was my 10th anniversary with my wife and she chose BMI as our night out without the kids. I had purchased 2 dozen... More

We had a great stay at Bog Moose Inn. We went there for dinner after a long day of hiking (bad winds slowed us down and we were much more tired than we expected). We had a great dinner and some local beers, and since we were really tired we asked if they happened to have a room open. They... More

Visited this Inn for our 40th anniversary and enjoyed the serene atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. We were very impressed when we arrived that the owners upgraded us to a larger room for our special occasion. Our dinner was excellent and the updated continental breakfasts were very enjoyable. A nice gesture was the Keurig coffee unit in our room. Canoes and... More

First off, Mark and Susan are kind owners who will accommodate special needs such as refrigeration of medicine, etc. They upgraded us to a King room for our anniversary and on checkout credited our account $50 for a last minute problem in our room. With that said, I'd rate the restaurant a 4 - we had a lovely dinner and... More

The Inn was a bit of a disappointment this year compared to our visit last year. The Inn is showing a major need for repair. Rotten boards, paint peeling,etc. I felt that these needs did not make for an inviting, relaxing environment. The restaurant food was average at best. Also, as we were at dinner the owner came out to... More

This is a lovely Inn to stay at overnight, but if you don't have time for a long visit you can still enjoy the fabulous fine dining their restaurant offers. Some of our favorites are the steamed clams, smoked clam chowder, and duck. Love their french onion soup paired with a glass of Coppola Rossa. When the weather is nice... More

We cannot say enough positive things about BMI. We drove five hours to pick up our son at sleepaway camp and could not have been happier when we arrived. From the super-friendly staff to the delicious food to the beautiful scenery-all amazing! You will feel right at home here!

We visited Big Moose in June 2016 for 3 days for our anniversary. They upgraded our room because I needed use of a refrigerator for medication and the room we had reserved was too small for a frig. We really appreciate them working wit us. The view of the lake is spectacular and you can hear the loons at night.... More
