Living in New Jersey and working & travelling to New York City every day I really needed some R & R. Normally we fly out to an Island, this year we decided that we wanted to visit the Adirondacks, which for some reason I never thought of doing before as a vacation. Mike & I were pleasantly surprise as to how much we enjoyed our trip to Eagle Bay, NY. Staying at the Big Moose Inn was perfect, what an enchanting place to stay, the Big Moose Lake was amazing. Mark & Susan were perfect host, they were engaging without being intrusive. They were there when you needed them but not watching over you. Even though the Inn is a bit old they kept it clean and it made you feel like you were visiting family. The staff were kind and accommodating and they made you feel welcomed and we met other guest who were friendly and engaging. I had a bit of a scare when Mike decided to go canoeing and went too far out in the lake and the canoe overturned. I ran in screaming for help and was shocked to see how quickly Mark/Susan and the other guest responded. Mark flew out the Inn to get help from his neighbor. They were on the lake in minutes and rescued Mike from the lake. I'm am so grateful for their quick response as I had thought Mike went under and didn't come back up. I nearly had a heart attack, but Susan was there calming me down and assure me that everything would be find. We will definitely got back, we had not felt that relaxed and calm in years.
