Lovely dinner by fireplace, beautifully decorated for Christmas. Added shrimp to my veggie risotto. They were gigantic and delicious! Wine by the glass was superb. Service impeccable. Sommelier poured our glasses personally. Ordered asparagus on the side. Perfectly prepared. Unfortunately too full for dessert. Everyone...More

The atmosphere makes it all, from the entrance to the dinning room. True Lodge decor, stunning. We made the reservation over the phone and I wish someone had told us that it was a fixed menu for Christmas night. It was very expensive for what...More

Place is nicely decorated for holidays. Food is great, good choices, desserts are exquisite, service is slow but friendly. There are several rooms. Some are for more intimate dining, some rooms are good for bigger groups of people. We definitely will be there again.

Friendly bar staff - got a cool special drink made. Prices are high but such a beautiful rustic atmosphere. Fridays and Saturdays the guitar player is great! Come here to hear Vinnie Leddick and his adirondack sounds!

The breakfast buffet is included with the room rate and is quite expensive if you come in from off the street. It is however a good selection. There is fresh fruit salad, yogurt, cereal and all the regular hot items like bacon, sausage, eggs, French...More

Such an awesome room to dine in. I've only eaten breakfast in the Kanu Lounge but on the two long weekends we have stayed I am always impressed. The food was plentiful, very fresh and full of choices. You can have the buffet that is...More

The food really isn't so bad but the chef can be inconsistent. I've had a dish that was so grossly overdone, turned back, and return golden. There was also a hair in my breakfast. Hairnets and more attention to details please...
