Perfect blend of lovely Inn and knowledgeable, friendly staff! Breakfast was delicious. Can't wait to go back for the wonderful relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. This is a great location in walking distance to downtown restaurants and easy drive to other Adirondack sightseeing.

Reservation system required registering online and then having to call in order to make the actual reservation with a credit card. After those motions, the reservation was confirmed via e-mail, but it didn't matter as we were bumped due to their double-booking our room. Their reservation system is in need of a slight upgrade, to say the least.

I wanted to once again offer sincere apologies for the mix-up with your reservation. We hope the stay at the Medberry Inn that we arranged for you was enjoyable, and that we have the opportunity to change your mind about our establishment in the future. Be well :)

My husband and I checked into the Lewis House (not far from our wedding/and reception). We had a beautiful room "The Garden Suite", which included a bathroom, complete with claw-foot tub. I have to say, that was one reason I picked this room. I love a bath in a deep tub. All the comforts were available - bubble bath, fresh...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in the Blue Room. It was a very, very, small room with closets full of the family's personal belongings and no room for your own comfort. There were two closets in this room but filled with Christmas decorations and clothing. The room was overfilled with furniture and no place to put...

Gee, I am really sorry for your experience at our B&B. Christmas is such a wonderful time in our home and the Blue Room is where we store our decorations. We usually store them in the space above the door and in the shelve cabinets along the east wall, but when we are decorating sometimes it seems the closets are...
