Forget about booking a reservation here!!!! The website is no help and you can't book for next year. Emailing the owner was a waste as she keeps saying she is waiting for "repeat" clients to book again-ARE YOU KIDDING! I said then I can't ever get a reservation if I have never stayed here!? Was also interested in the rates and asked 5 times but kept repeating that she had to wait for repeat customers to book. Don't waste your time-stay in Inlet where there are plenty of rental cottages with great service and owners!

To start, we have been staying here for years and have had great experiences in the past. We love the location and charm of the retro motel and the newer cabins; however, we've had increasingly worse service each year since the current owners took over and will never stay here again after our most recent encounter. In 2018, we had to cut our fall trip short because our 2-year-old son had an extreme illness. They refused to refund any portion of the money we paid. In October of 2019, there was no power in our cabin. We were without heat for several days when the temperatures outside did not rise above 40 degrees. On the third day of our stay, the owners gave us a defective propane space heater that made the CO2 detector in our cabin go off while we were sleeping. Thankfully there was a CO2 detector or that trip could have ended very differently. We were staying there with our two young child (6 and 3) and my wife was in her third trimester with our third. The owners refused to refund our money or decrease the amount they charged. Finally, in December of 2021, we called to book a long 4th of July weekend. (Long Lake is one of the best places to celebrate in the state, and we were looking forward to the festivities after missing them for 2 years due to COVID.) We reserved one room in the motel and attempted to pay our deposit over the phone. They did not want to accept . They had a card on file from our previous stays and we authorized them to charge the deposit to it. We were told they did not want to accept payments for the 2022 season at the end of 2021 for "accounting reasons" and insisted on sending us an invoice via email in January. The woman on the phone assured us that we had a reservation for the four days we planned to stay. We never received the invoice. We recently called to check on our reservation and were told we did not have one. They said they do not invoice for deposits and reservations are cancelled after three weeks if they do not receive a deposit, contradicting the information they gave us in December. THEY WERE UNAPOLOGETIC AND ARGUMENTATIVE! They denied giving us the above information in January and insisted we were wrong. Everything is now booked at this and every other location in the area, and we cannot go to Long Lake for the 4th of July.

We stayed in the Bridge View Cabin 25, this is one of the best cabins we have stayed in on our travels. View, amenities are great, includes a nice wood burning fireplace that adds nice touch. We are hiking addicts & hiked two local beautiful snow covered mountains, Coney Mountain & Owls Head Mountain, loved them both, needed & used micro spikes for Owls Head. Highly recommend this place, the owners & family are so nice & fun to chat with, very responsive to any questions. We will be back & is best place we have stayed in Adirondacks yet. Thank You!!

We visited for five nights in August after booking in March. It was wonderful to have a fun, COVID-safe vacation for a family of four with school-aged children. Our cottage was clean, comfortable and well-equipped for making meals. The deck overlooked the lake and we enjoyed morning coffee and nightly dinners while watching the water and mountains. Other guests were friendly and sociable, and our kids met up with playmates at the beach each day. We took advantage of the canoes, kayaks, and easy walk to the town for souvenir shopping and ice cream. The kids are already asking to return next summer!

We rented 3 cabins for a week, and found Motel Long Lake to be ideal for our multi generational family vacation. It proved to be exactly what we were seeking…..family togetherness and wholesome, outdoor, unplugged fun. It was vaguely and happily reminiscent of my long ago days at Girl Scout camp in upstate New York…swimming and boating on the lake, cabins connected by shale paths, evening “campfires” (fire pits provided), and nearby hiking of varying difficulty levels. We thoroughly appreciated all of our cabins being very CLEAN upon arrival as this is a MUST for our group! It was readily apparent that careful thought had been given to provide appropriate furnishings, housekeeping supplies, and recreational opportunities. With ages in our group ranging from 5 years to 70 years, there was fun for all including access to canoes, kayaks, ping pong table, playground and even kids’ sand toys. Communication with the owners prior to our arrival was excellent and very helpful. As guests on the property, we found the owners to be attentive and available to help in any way they could. This was our first stay at Motel Long Lake, but it won’t be our last!

Stayed over Memorial Day weekend in the two-bedroom Haven cottage. Nice, clean and comfortable cottage. It was a very cold weekend, and the baseboard heating worked great! Kitchen was well equipped, and the beds were comfortable. Also, the place was quiet at night and we did not see/hear any loud partiers, etc. I would definitely stay here again.

This place is such a great, classic motel right on the lake. Multiple canoes and kayaks are there for you to paddle. Hammocks, ping pong, pool table, and charming cottages only add to the Adirondack vibe. Best of all, I accidentally booked our cottage for the wrong dates, so I called on Sunday at about 5:00 p.m, and spoke with the owner, who rapidly corrected my mistake, and sent someone over to clean the cabin...ON A SUNDAY at dinnertime. I felt so bad, but they handled MY mistake like it was no problem. We will definitely be back, and I promise to book for the right dates!
