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 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

Big Moose Inn feels like a small old resort in the Adirondacks--which is exactly what it is. Not the fanciest rooms, but the feel of the place is great. The hosts are awesome and true foodies--the bar and restaurant are great. They were very helpful in helping us get around the area--which we did not know. Perfect for this part... More

We never get tired of the long trip to visit Big Moose Inn. The food is outstanding with an emphasis on local ingredients. The service is very professional and friendly. Reservations are a very good idea as they often full up. Nice wine and beer list too. We usually opt for the dining room, but there's a pub option too

Had dinner at Big Moose Inn with two other folks while in the area for a wedding. Pleasant dining room and staff with a great early evening view of the lake. They also have an outdoor patio that looks like a good place to enjoy a beverage and then dinner. All entrees were well prepared, including the pike which was... More

If your looking for excitement, then this is not the place. We came on a Groupon deal, with a set itinerary. This place is where to go if you're an older couple or looking for total peace and quiet. The staff is great, they provided great nearby restaurants. They could definitely work on their continental breakfast. What I would recommend... More

This hotel met all our expectations. The hotel staff were welcoming and efficient. Our bedroom overlooked the lake, it must be one of the best views from any bedroom window in the U.S.. The location is simply stunning overlooking the lake. Kayaks were available to hotel guests but we settled to just sit on the jetty and enjoy the tranquil... More

We spent 4 nights at one of our favorite Adirondack Inns, Big Moose Inn. We have many wonderful memories of fun family times at this rustic, but beautiful Inn. We had a lakeside room with a comfortable king bed and a beautiful view of the snow-covered , peaceful lake. We stayed midweek which was not as busy as weekends and... More
