Goose Pond Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 North Creek B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Beverly and Jim run a sweet, 4-room B&B about 2 miles from Gore Mountain. The setting next to a pond and woods (there is also a cemetery in view on arrival, but not visible from the rooms), is delightful. I was so pleased my second morning to watch a woodpecker, bluejay, and two house sparrows in the tree outside my window. The breakfast menu is varied containing such well-prepared delights as brandied French toast and Goose mcmuffin (available to take away for extra-early starts), as well as a daily special like, fresh blueberry buttermilk or cornbread pancakes with bananas or chopped pecans. I was shocked by some of the reviews from 2007 and 2008. They are totally inaccurate now, so make sure you look at the dates people stayed when doing your research. There is free wifi throughout the Inn, and Beverly and Jim have three lovely dogs (they do not have the run of the place, so need to worry, if you are not a dog-lover), they are very helpful, and supply menus for restaurants in town. BarVino was a great tapas place with a well-stocked wine room and several beers on tap, and Izzy's Market and Deli served a surprisingly fresh and delicious dinner for $10, but only on Monday nights.

My girlfriend and I stayed here the long weekend of presidents day as we were snowboarding at Gore, and what a treat it was. Rooms were nicely decorated and cozy to come back to, the food was fantastic every morning, and Beverly was a real help finding places to eat at around North Creek. We drove in from Toronto and arrived late, but Beverly made sure we could find everything we needed when we arrived and get a good nights sleep.

The mountain itself is a 5 minute drive away and can be seen from the breakfast table. Once back at the B&B after a day on the hills, you are close enough to town that you can walk over and grab a bite and drink. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in North Creek.

Since our first visit to the area last December (2012), my husband and I keep finding ourselves coming back to North Creek. There is something so unique and quaint about the town that we just can't get enough! Thus, if you are interested in taking a trip to the area, there is no better place to stay than the Goose Pond Inn. The owners, Beverly and Jim are incredibly gracious, accommodating and manage a beautiful bed and breakfast. My husband and I are currently in the market for a ski cabin of our own but, in the meantime - we greatly enjoy our visits to this lovely B&B. Can't wait for our next visit!

My husband, two children, 10 and 12, and I spent a great four days at the Goose Pond Inn. The wonderful hosts, Beverly and Jim, went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Among the special extras: they volunteered to take our luggage to the train station on our checkout day, eliminating a logistical hassle. The breakfasts, made to order for each guest, are delicious, and the game room provided amusement and extra space to relax. The refrigerator and microwave in the game room meant we could fix our suppers and eat in the cozy dining room (good for folks on a budget, as a nice restaurant dinner in North Creek is minimum $20/person). We hope to come back, and would recommend the Goose Pond to anyone looking for a wonderful Gore ski vacation -- without your car. Come on the Snow Train from Saratoga (Amtrak connection); Bev and/or Jim will pick you up, and the free shuttle, which runs about every half hour on weekends, holidays, and Presidents' week, takes you to/from the slopes. Don't forget to say hi to the Inn's three dogs and two chatty parrots.

My boyfriend and I found the Goose Pond Inn on the Gore Mountain Ski Resort website when we were planning a snowboarding trip. The inn is very cozy, and it was filled with cute antiques. There is a game room with a pool table and some fun board games, such as battleship, monopoly, and scrabble, and there is an area with couches and a fireplace that is nice for reading or just relaxing. The breakfasts were also fabulous; we would recommend the omelets! Beverly and Jim are very friendly and were helpful with finding restaurants and things to do around the town. There are plenty of cute shops to explore in North Creek, and the ski resort was a three minute drive from the inn. We would recommend the Goose Pond Inn for any couple or family looking for a nice weekend getaway in the mountains.

Beverly and Jim's Goose Pond Inn in North Creek, NY is a charming, welcoming bed and breakfast inn. Their hospitality is evident in all the special touches one finds during their stay. Our clean guest room with a private bath made our stay cozy and comfortable. The electric fireplace, comfortable bed, dressers, and soothing shower add up to a home away from home. A delicious breakfast is served each morning with several choices offered to each guest. Beverly and Jim eagerly share information about restaurants and attractions in the area. They are friendly hosts who truly made our stay special.

I love this place. We've been coming here for years and are always greeted with a smile by Bev and her talented chef husband. The rooms are quaint with antiques and comfortable beds and beautiful quilts. Amazing country breakfast served in the morning. By far our favorite place for respite upstate. We'll be back for sure!
