    Free breakfast was NOT free

    Free breakfast was NOT free, since we were surprised to be charged a gratuity of $6.80 each day on the "free" breakfast.

    Relaxing getaway

    Welcoming and friendly staff. The room was clean and comfy. Window seat with view of the Lake was nice while having our morning coffee. Breakfast was delicious. Dinner in the bistro with bar area was very good. Outdoor lounge area with wood burning fireplace was enjoyable. Short trail leading to lake area right across the road is nice. Kayaking was available, (we weren't able to take advantage of that). Short drive to Bolton Landing and Lake George village. Overall a nice place to unwind during these unprecedented times. We would stay here again.

    Great luxury escape in the Adirondacks

    A wonderful place with a lot of personal attention, our new escape from home. We had a very comfortable room and a balcony with a view of the lake and the mountains in the distances; the bathroom had a big hot tub and steam shower. The place was quiet and clean, and each meal that we had was excellent. The staff was exceptionally friendly and showed great care for our well-being. We enjoyed the beautifully kept grounds with the pond in the back, the trails that lead from the house to the surrounding area. And the lake with the hotel's own small beach is in short walking distance. We are definitely going to be back!

    Lovely Inn

    Lovely weekend at Friends Lake Inn. Meals in the pub restaurant and dining room ranged from very good to excellent, including breakfast. The staff were very helpful and friendly in spite of being understaffed, I believe because of the pandemic. A very conscientious group! Our room was very big, comfortable and thoroughly cleaned, spotless! I wish it had a mini fridge but there was one down the hall for guests that didn’t have one, some rooms do. The only downsides are the pool is not open this year and the dock on the lake was not fully extended out over the lake, I’m not sure why. it’s a 5 minute walk across the road from the inn. it’s easier to get in for a swim if the dock is further out on the lake. But it’s a nice spot to sit and relax. There’s also a nice outdoor patio with a fireplace we enjoyed in the evenings. I would recommend the inn for a nice quiet weekend getaway, it’s big and comfy and clean. I hope to return again. I’m sure it’s beautiful in the fall season! Plenty of hiking trials nearby.
