This was a great place to stay while my partner and I skiied gore mountain. It's cozy, quiet, and truly rustic, with such a gorgeous view. If you want to enjoy the view from your room be sure to get a room with a balconey. The staff is friendly and the food is great. The only problem we had during our stay was that the room was always way too hot, but you can open a window and it's quite comfortable.

We will DEFINITELY be back!!
My wife and I stayed here for a weekend ski trip to the area. We arrived in the middle of a huge snow storm and reaped the benefits of a beautiful snow filled Adirondack weekend. We stayed in a King room in the main lodge. This was exceptionally convenient, because we were just steps away from the HUGE fireplace in the main entryway, as well as the bar and restaurant. The food was very good! We ate in-house both nights during our stay, and both enjoyed our meals. We skied Gore Mt. on Friday (which is a short 15min drive) and we XC skied, Saturday on site. The XC was amazing. It was our first experience on XC ski's and it did not disappoint. We received a well instructed hour long lesson (from Patrick - who is AWESOME!). After our instruction, we were ready to tackle the trails. The trail options are extensive and offered plenty of beginner options, as well as technically challenging trails. We spent 4 hours skiing the south side of the resort and had a blast. Even though the parking lot was packed, we only passed 4-5 skiers the whole time. The entire weekend was amazing, and my wife and I cannot wait to head back. There is ZERO cell service at the Logde, but WiFi connectivity allowed us to keep in touch with our 3 children, so we didn't feel totally disconnected. We will definitely be heading back. Also, I generally do not leave reviews unless I really like or dislike something. You will not regret staying here!

I love the location on the mountain, great view to the lake and surrounding mountains, the lodge is great, the room i stayed is good size (tea house), away from the mains building but good anyway, great hicking trails, really enjoy my stay, the only thing that could make it better is a pool, otherwise, amazing place with espectacular view. Love it
