Great pines is the old north woods, under new management and ownership. You can see the many improvements and improvements still underway. Situated right on the lake with great views from both restaurants and some of the rooms. Better view than Daikers has right down the road. Room are pleasant and have been updated. King size beds and futons on... More

It was sold as being fine dining, but turned out to be average in my estimation. I ordered a lamb shank which was brought out burned and dried out. They were gracious about replacing it but I was quite surprised the kitchen sent it out in the first place.

Its sad to see such a beautiful property going downhill. We could not get into our room until almost 5:00 p.m because "the staff did not show up for work" Its obvious that no one is spending any money on routine maintanece. Things that break stay broken. The hair dryers was in pieces but still plugged into the outlet, VERY... More

The place is like everyone has stated is outdated and not the cleanest. I could have lived with that because the location is beautiful. The food at the wedding was excellent awl the guest loved karaoki bar. What was the biggest problem was that so many guests had their credit cards compromised. What's going on is the question of the... More

Yuck. We booked a Jacuzzi room and there was a wedding just about to happen in front of our room so rather then disturb them we went out to dinner and returned later to walk in and find the jacuzzi filling, the bed undone, and a WOMAN in our shower. She ran out and her husband came FROM THEIR ROOM... More

When we visited, the property was for sale. It appears that they have stopped putting money into it and lots of work needs to be done. It is not a bad place -- the room was clean and okay, just needed some maintenance and updating. It is a beautiful location and if sold and cared for, would be a great... More

We booked rooms at the North Woods Inn - but clearly I should have checked TA first! The rooms were rather dark, and one room had all its windows open, not too nice on a rainy day. One of the windows was a real struggle to close. The bathrooms were bright but cramped. But the most disappointing thing was the... More

We have been coming to Adirondacks for years. Thought we would try this place. LUCKILY was only for (2) nights. What a disappointment! The room was in desperate need of updating. Shower was VERY small. Hot water only in shower - not able to adjust temperature. Sink was slow draining. The rug in the room was very worn. Floor near... More
