“Another Great Adventure and Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

I have come to this wonderful home away from home for a number of years to go snowmobiling with my friends. Each and everytime we are welcomed like we were just there yesterday. Beyond the great historic restoration and rooms that are always ready and clean, the food is some of the best I have ever had, and that view is shared by everyone I have been there with me. I dont write reviews much, but this is far and beyond the best experience and well worth the trip for a couple or a group. This year we were with 8 others and the owners were very able to accomodate all of us, and really made for a great trip. We are all trying to get back later this year, and I wont stay anywhere else. Freindly and Fantastic!

Room Tip: quieter on south side if you go in the winter.

We could not have imagined having a more amazing wedding than the one hosted by The Woods Inn in August of 2013. As a former event planner, I have an eye for detail and have a difficult time letting go; I did, with my daughters insistence, and can honestly say that our experience was wonderful beyond our greatest expectations. Joedda and Jay, the owners, and their staff, were attentive to our every need: the rooms were immaculate with generous amenities; the food was exceptional, the setting, absolutely charming, historical and elegantly rustic.
My daughter had the wedding of her dreams, thanks to The Woods Inn. I will be forever grateful for their hospitality and graciousness. I would recommend The Woods Inn Inn to if you if you MUST have it all, like we did, and everything MUST be perfect, priced reasonably; in addition, be given the assurance that you and your guests will be treated like royalty; we couldn't be happier.

Room Tip: You will find many amazing rooms, in various areas of the INN; we particularly like the ones upstair...

We just came back from a Columbus Day weekend at the Woods Inn. Yes it is an older building but it is also warm, cozy and homey. It has a lovely restaurant with good food. The tavern was lively with great music. Their living room has a cable TV. They also have a game room with a foosball and pool table. Next door was an independent boat rental facility if you wanted to get out on the lake. There are lots of hiking trails nearby. The best is the porch, lawn and new boat dock overlooking beautiful 4th lake. The innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. The Woods Inn in Inlet, NY is a great meeting place in the middle of the Adirondacks.

The Woods Inn is THE BEST way to get away from it all in a rustic setting with all of the amenities. We've been travelling to the Adirondacks for about 10 years and find The Woods Inn to be the best place to stay. You get the historic experience, the wilderness experience and the creature comforts experience. They have the best food for many miles around. And the best sunsets. Excellent location. Wonderful people. We just left yesterday and I wish I was back.

Room Tip: Try to get a lakeview room. All rooms are different and charming.

We stayed at the Woods Inn for one night. I am glad that is was not for more nights. We had a hole in the ceiling that looked like it was damaged for a while. The porch was dirty and the linens were old and worn. It was also overpriced. The location was gorgeous but needs lots of work. We did enjoy the tavern and the band was good.

The Woods Inn is a beautiful place. However, the owners and employees were exceptionally rude. The rooms are over priced for what you get. The woman owner guided us to the breakfast dining area and tells us to help ourselves yet fails to mention it's $12 a person. The man owner was a jerk and rude to guests telling them to get out of the way so he can keep the fire going. When we arrived, one of the rooms rented was not ready and that showed us that they don't wash the top blankets. Also, a pillow that didn't have a pillowcase on had a what looked like a large blood stain. The bartenders were miserable and made ordering drinks dreadful. The place is gorgeous but needs a lot of TLC and friendly owners and staff. Hopefully someone great will buy the place because it is an amazing landmark.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A restored turn of the century inn with tavern and restaurant. Situated on Fourth Lake in Inlet with amazing Adirondack views. This is an award - winning historic property we designed to be a true Adirondack experience. The decor is meant to be campy shabby - chic. While we have added the modern conveniences that we think were lacking in the past century, we have tried to create a less stressful mountain environment that brings back another time. ... more   less
