Delightful find just outside of Lake Placid.....hiking trails, fishing, great food, rooms were comfortable and our host - owner was a wonderfully entertaining gentleman with a great sense of humor! Can't wait to return!

We stayed in a cozy two room suite with a group of 6 after Ragnar. . A little kitchen and table for one of the bedrooms and another room had two full and a single bunk. Bathroom Had great showers. We would recommend for a weekend. There was a small pool and a restaurant that we chose not to eat...

In the context of a motel in a remote area of the Adirondacks this place is very nice. Clean, quiet, firm bed, good shower, good towels and on the campus of an excellent restaurant and fly shop. One caution is u must drive for breakfast. I am certain I will return.

Simple, comfortable rooms, great river access, but no public spaces...really a 60s style motor inn on a really good trout stream with access to private water and a top-notch fly-shop. Don't think high-end western resort and you'll be very happy.

I appreciate and welcome this individual's response and I agree with it. This property makes no pretense about who we are and what we offer. Our rooms are very comfortable, very clean, cozy, quiet and warm with picture window views of the Whiteface Mountain range directly behind us. Our location is second to none in our area as the entire...

We have been coming to the Hungry Trout for quite a while. Each trip is better then the last. Evan in the Fly Fishing Shop is patient, friendly and knowledgeable. Hungry Trout has many locations they own to go fly fishing and then there's always the Awesome AuSable. Jerry has provided a clean, hospitable place to stay with a fantastic...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Hungry Trout Resort. Room was clean and tastefully decorated in the classic Adirondack style. Grounds were well maintained and the outside seating patio overlooks the Ausable River. And the two restaurants had good service with great food and an awesome view. Will be going back here to stay for sure. Highly recommend!

The service we got was great. There was a problem with our original room we booked, but they made everything right. The room was very clean. They also had a swimming pool with a slide and a diving board. I haven't dove in a long time, which was a blast! My kids also had a great time. :-) Also, just...

We booked a room online and then were told they overbooked. The lady at the desk was not helpful at all. She barely gave us an explanation. Fortunately, the lovely people at the Ledge Rock across from Whiteface were extremely accommodating. Thanks Roger!

Making reservations on-line was a snap.The ability to see & select your room with helpfully accurate on-line photos was very much appreciated (not all rooms have been renovated as yet). While en-route the day of arrival, the thoughtful Receptionist called to advise that we could go directly to our room upon arrival & provided details of special event happening in...
