“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2010

This is my husband, mine and our daughters 4th visit to Old Forge and our 4th Motel. Finally we found one that we can call our Home Away From Home. We are happy to say we will be coming back from year to year. You will never receive the hospitality that we received in any other 5 star resort. Every day they took the time to speak with us and never treated us like we were a bother. We were honored enough to meet their daughter and grandson and you knew the owners were wonderful people just because of how great their family also was. In addition the room we got was perfect no complaints. The housekeeping was maintained each day clean towels,beds made up,garbage taken out. Even my daughters stuffed animals were arranged on the bed something she appreciated. The owners new all about local attractions as well. Boat rentals, park times and even little perks about the water park. Finally they have the best view of the lake and the only beach front available. Lets just say we went there with reservations for 2 nights and ended up staying for 3 nights. If you stay any other place then the Pine Knoll Lodge and Cabins you'll be missing out on a great peaceful getaway.

We had a room with a balcony overlooking Old Forge Pond. We loved the convenience of the kitchenette. We walked to the shops and restaurants in Old Forge Village. We walked about 200 feet to rent a canoe. We went down the steps to take a swim. From the balcony, you can see Mt. McCauley, Water Safari, and Old Forge Lake Cruises. Inlet and Raquette Lake are a short drive away. On Sunday evenings in summer, there are concerts on the waterfront. You can walk down to the stage in about three minutes or watch from the balcony.

The room was very large and we had our own private balcony overlooking the lake. Kitchenette with pot and pans, glasses, etc. Microwave and refrigerator, of course. The bathroom was marvelous, we wanted to take it home with us. Highly recommended.

My husband and I wanted a relaxing vacation and that is just what we got at Pine Knoll.
The cabin we stayed in was very comfortable and the view from our deck was beautiful.
Jim and Robin were the perfect hosts. They made us feel at home and comfortable. We had quite a few opportunities to chat with them both and found them to be very pleasant people!
Jim and Robin have only been running Pine Knoll for about a year and a half, but in that time you can really see the impovements they have made at the facility. It is looking wonderful!
We spent 3 full days touring the Fulton Chain Lakes by boat and found the lakes just beautiful!
The town of Old Forge is very quaint, fun to walk around a explore.
We would deffinetly visit there again.

Pine Knoll lodge is a great place to stay! It has a wonderful view. Hosts Jim and Robin were very friendly. You can walk to Old Forge along the Lake side walk. I would highly recommend Pine Knoll Lodge and plan to go back this Fall.

Our first trip to Old Forge was to try out the Thendara Golf Club. Pine Knoll was one of a number of hotels with a stay and play package which offered a very good rate for both the hotel room and the round of golf. We wanted to be sure that the weather would cooperate and hence, didn't want to finalize booking our room until we were as sure as we could be that the weather would be nice. I worked with Robin at Pine Knoll to plan the visit. She was very helpful. While the visit was short, it worked out very well. Pine Knoll is located right on 4th Lake, so not only does it have a nice view of the Lake, it also has its own beach. If one wanted to rent a boat, a Marina is right next door to them, so also very convenient. A lot of the other "stay and play" hotels are on Main Street, so do not have the benefit of this Lake view. Even though Pine Knoll was not on Main Street, it was very close to it, so you had the advantages of proximity to local activities if you were interested.. The standard room was fine: clean, with gas burners, dishes and refrigerator that had a freezer that worked. That's something you don't always find with little refrigerators. Both Robin and her husband were helpful and pleasant and offered restaurant suggestions when we asked. If we find ourselves again playing at Thendara, we will be sure to plan our stay at Pine Knoll again.

I had the pleasure of staying at Pine Knolls twice in one month. Friendly welcome upon arrival and a pleasant stay. The rooms are clean, the beds are super comfy,well maintained and have that Adirondack appeal. The cabins have everything you could need for preparing your own meals. If you need anything, they are quick to respond. Everything is within walking distance that you could want. It was a great stay and would recommend to anyone looking to visit Old Forge and look forward to our next visit . Thanks again Jim & Robin :)
