Although we did not take advantage of the Inn, we re-visited the Woods Inn for dinner, after 5 or 6 years. We were not disappointed. The food and the service were as impeccable as our first visit. In better weather, the view of the lake would have been fantastic.

Attended a wedding and spent two October nights in the lake side guide tent. The venue is beautiful for a wedding. The entire staff is very attentive and accommodating. The ceremony and reception were spot on and everyone had a wonderful time. The food served at the wedding was very good. I loved the chicken french, and the osso bucco... More

My wife and I ate dinner here recently -- our first time. The entire experience was simply wonderful. Our meal was fresh and prepared nicely. The view of the lake from the porch dining area was beautiful. The ambiance of the dining area and hotel were so cozy and inviting -- old world charm. The server, hostess and owner were... More

My family decided to visit the restaurant for dinner after seeing a high rating on TripAdvisor. The location was easy to find, yet private and atmosphere was inviting. We were excited for our meal. We were not seated by the hostess, but were pointed where to sit. It took about 10 minutes for the waitress to even acknowledge us and... More

This North Country Inn has rooms to rent, is able to handle large functions, has a fine dining restaurant, and has a great location on Fourth Lake. A bar on the lower level is small but fun with a band on some nights and a dance floor. Double Barrel was very entertaining on our visit with a large repertoire of... More

My now fiancee and I had a weekend in the Adirondacks in August and I chose this restaraunt dock to propose to her. I worked directly with Lily (who's also an amazing photographer) and she made everything as simple as could be. She got sneak photos of the engagement, setup so the whole restaraunt wouldn't interfere, and even had the... More

Beautiful spot on Fourth Lake. Live to sit in the Adirondack chairs and have a coffee. The porch is a wonderful lookout spot too. Looks like new owners are trying hard at improvements. The outside structure is great for weddings. Haven't tried their food of late. A good stop. And it is haunted.

We stayed in this beautiful old inn for a day on our way home from Maine to Cincinnati. It really is what one expects of the traditional Adirondack lake inn with steep stairs, a railed porch outfitted with rocking chairs. The grassy slope to the water was a great place to congregate and relax with a book. A nice surprise... More

We stopped in the way home from Syracuse for lunch. The menu is basic but totally met our needs. My cheeseburger and my wife's turkey sandwich were made to order and cooked well. The seating, outside in the dock, was scenic and perfect! Highly recommend stopping!

My daughters and I stayed four nights Sunday to Thursday at the Inn. We ate in the Tavern and restaurant twice. The food was excellent - I recommend both the salmon and sirloin steak. It's the end of the season so the service was a bit slower than a typical restaurant but I was there to relax and enjoy the... More
