price could be lowered as the property and lake did not exhibit any signs of wild life despite the lack of pavement (my brother's Mini even bottomed out on tree roots while pulling in one time) and limited access to the lake. i even risked catching a cold by purposefully opening my 2 bedroom windows with hopes of hearing something...

This was the second time we went to this place. To be fair, the outside is pretty nice with a pretty view on a small lake. But the cabin itself is just GROSS. We were given the cabin #17. First thing after opening the door : THE SMELL!!. Look like this door was not opened for 2 years!.. Then the...

The balcony overlooking the lake was wonderful. It would have been a nice place to stay if only the owners had cleaned the place beforehand. There were dust nests everywhere and the cupboards were not well stocked with dishes. I hadn't had to use plastic plates for a long time and we had to share a mug for coffee. I...

The owners are very friendly, the cabins are clean and neat, and the view on the deck was great! Beds were pretty comfy too!!! Was just what we needed. Owners were very accommodating, friendly and the price was decent. We would definitely go back. It is definitely Adirondack-like and just what we wanted for our long weekend. We would like...

My husband and I have been to Sherwood Forest Motor Inn many times, with our teenage sons, with friends, and by ourselves and it is always a great time. The cabins are beautiful and have everything you need in them, including fireplaces for those chilly nights. We live in Florida now but I look forward to being able to go...

Sherwood Forest is perfectly located between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid, NY. The "Motor Inn" encompasses several cabins on a privately owned lake (Wolf Lake). Because the Lake is privately owned, you can fish on it without a license (my brother was out there every morning by 6:00am) and use (for free)one of their many canoes and row boats. We...

We rented cabin 7B for two nights on Valentine's Day weekend in February 2015. The cabin was clean, the price was fair, the heat worked almost too well, and the fireplace was a perfect touch. The cabin was right on the lake and the view was amazing. We will definitely be coming here again.

We were on our annual leaf peeping tour of the Adirondacks and always just wing it when it comes time to find a room. We stayed here because it was available at a fair price ($85). We stayed in unit #16, a one bedroom with a kitchen and bathroom. We were not on the lake but could see it from...
