We recently returned from our first anniversary trip and loved the Trail's End Inn! We stayed in the Skylight room which was one of the three new rooms added to the end of the inn. The new rooms all have fireplaces and jetted tubs. After the cross country skiing and winter hiking, we really enjoyed relaxing in the tub and by the fire.
Breakfast in the morning was excellent. We had french toast, egg quiche, and an egg tart during our stay, and all meals included coffee, juice, fresh fruit and a homemade baked goods. The maple nut scones were fantastic.
The staff is around if you need them, but as noted they give you your privacy. You can use the fireplace, TV, and game room in the main house as needed, and there is always coffee, soda, water and snacks around at all times of the day.
There are plenty of hiking trails nearby Keene Valley, with an excellent diner and small grocery store in town. Lake Placid and Whiteface are an easy drive about half an hour north, with the other Olympic attractions on the way including cross country skiing, bobsled and ski jumping.
We'll be back to the Trail's End Inn for sure.
