This might not be the place for everyone. I found it refreshing to find a spot with no cell service, no TV, no tourist trap shops or restaurants, yet everything you could want to Escobar, exercise and feel genuinely at one with a virtually untouched part of the country. The lodge has been there for over 100 years without much... More

It's difficult to be objective about Elk Lake Lodge because it fit what we wanted so perfectly. It is a historic lodge located in a pristine, beautiful wilderness. (It is not a place to go to if you want to run to town every other day because nothing is very close in driving time.) They serve three meals a day:... More

This was this Louisiana native's first time in the Adirondacks. We first stopped in Lake George which made us feel like we had stepped back in the 1950s or 60s. As you drive up the 9N along Lake George it is a lovely drive on a winding road with views of the lake here and there. We stayed at Elk... More

This was our first time here. We very much enjoyed spending a few quiet, relaxing days at Elk Lake Lodge. We stayed in one of the two upstairs suites at the Emerson cottage (which is also called Big Darling.) The cottage itself is nicely done. I suspect it has been fairly recently renovated. Everything was in great shape and very... More

Our fifth stay at Elk Lake took our breaths away as much as the first! This is a place for slow or strenuous hikers and paddlers, or those who just want an Adirondacks chair and good book. The dining room serves all-American fare, from blueberry pancakes to New York strips. Choice of two or three main courses per evening, which... More

What a gorgeous, restful, tranquil, serene (etc., etc.) place. We stayed in Windfall Cottage, which was pricey for just two people but 100% worth it for the incredible views and privacy -- just what we wanted (and needed!) to unwind from the wonderful madness of our wedding. As other people have mentioned, this is not a place to expect culinary... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Elk Lake Lodge. After a six mile drive off the road into Adirondack wilderness, we arrived at a lake surrounded by mountain peaks, stocked with trout, home of loons....the water was pristine and cool, just right for swimming! We loved the water front, with a raft and huge dock and Adirondack style chairs to... More

We did a mini family reunion here last week. My parents, brother, niece, nephew and nephew's girlfriend stayed in one of the cabins while my husband and I stayed in the main lodge. The whole experience was fantastic. There's no cell service, so the kids put down their phones! We hiked and paddled during the day and played games at... More

Deer Flies biting us all the time. it was difficult to enjoy the place because we were being bit all the time. The meals were not that good. The service staff was fine. The lake is fabulous to look at behind a screened in porch

Cabin was small, you could barely dry yourself coming out of the shower in the small bathroom. Very expensive - $450 per night. Gratuity built into charges, but totally ridiculous was gratuity charge put on getting a glass of wine at dinner. Really, what is the difference between the server getting you an ice tea and a glass of wine?... More
