The lodge had just exchanged hands when I visited. The property is magnificent with views to mountains and a lake. The fireplaces are made from rocks with garnet sparkling in them-- really unusual. I stayed in the main lodge on the side with no view. It's very rustic. The furnishings were old, frumpy, lumpy, flat pillows, no style to the...

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary snowshoeing and xc skiing, and the place we usually go to was booked, so we took a chance on Garnet Hill. It had everything we wanted, and a lot more! It's a great old Adirondack Lodge with extensive trails, friendly staff, and really good food! We snowshoed up to the old garnet mine the...

We had a wonderful time at Garnet Hill this past weekend. We had a snow storm which produced 14 inches of new fallen snow. They were up at 1am grooming trails for us to enjoy the next day. Everyone was friendly and very helpful. Our room was very comfortable.

Friendly staff and beautiful lodge. Perfect trail conditions for cross country skiing . .only bad thing was that we couldn't stay longer. This was our 10th trip to Garnet Hill. Ski shop has delicious soup , chilli & snacks. Sugar house run on Sundays is a must to catch the complimentary pancakes.

Enjoyed a two night stay and was able to enjoy some winter sports. Located about 15 minutes from Gore MT. The main lodge is rustic but had plenty of Adirondack charm. We stayed in one of the outer buildings that had a king bed, bunk beds for kids and a nice sized bath room with a shower and hot tub....

Very well-groomed and maintained trails in a truly scenic setting. We skied up to the Log Cabin and what a view down over the lake. Plus, delish food - Monte Cristo sandwich with berry chutney - in the cafe! Definitely worth the trip.

Thank you for your review. We have been working vigorously to keep the trail system as good as possible; sometimes with and sometimes without Mother Nature's assistance.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Garnet Hill Lodge is a 4 season hotel and resort in the central Adirondacks. Situated on a gentle hill overlooking pristine Thirteenth Lake, Garnet Hill Lodge offers a storybook Adirondack setting for individuals, couples, and families to escape from the hectic pace of everyday life and surround themselves with the serenity of nature. Our guests can choose to actively engage in hiking, mountain biking, swimming, paddling a kayak/canoe... Or just settle into an Adirondack chair on the expansive front lawn with a good book if preferred. Winter opens up 50k of beautifully groomed cross-country ski trails, countless miles of back-country and snowshoe trails. As well as 15 minutes to downhill skiing at Gore Mountain. Our main Log House Lodge is reminiscent of an Adirondack Great Camp. The original structure was built in 1936 and offers a casual, friendly atmosphere with Bed and Breakfast guest service. Our location provides convenient access to many vacation activities, but best of all, it is a unique opportunity for couples and families to reconnect over wholesome outdoor activities. Our full service restaurant is open to the public and nourishes all our guests with freshly prepared, hearty lodge meals. ... more   less
