Quite happy with the room! Tastefully decorated in rustic Adirondak style. Bedding was wonderful and very comfortable. Had great night sleep ! Could use a little more light in the rooms and a towel rack in the bathroom. The setting on the lake is outstanding. The cute red Adironcak chairs in which to relax and watch the lake are plentiful.... More

We know the area well and have been twice to the property, once by boat, once by car. Great setting, they are doing a nice job restoring the property. The surprise was great service, yummy bloody Mary's on Sunday, and decent food. The burgers and salads are great, and it's a nice lakeside bistro menu. Will definitely go back for... More

The Great Pines is being developed by new owners who have renovated the property and created an upscale restaurant (The Lodge; dinners Wednesday-Sunday) as well as a casual venue (The Lean-To). The former has an excellent menu that looks very appealing and prices reflect the fine dining offered. Menus apparently change and are not currently listed on their website. We... More

Once my husband and I decided that Old Forge would be our Labor Day weekend destination, I went to work scouring travel websites for reviews on lodging. I wanted a waterfront location and came across Great Pines. I recalled family members talking about its history as North Woods Resort and it changing hands approximately 8 months ago and its subsequent... More

This beautiful property has brand new owners who take great pride in the appearance, atmosphere, waitstaff, CLEANLINESS and the customer's overall experience. As we entered the Lodge,(dining room) we were greeted by a friendly hostess, who brought us to our table. The dining room is gorgeous, and very "Adirondacky" with wood accents everywhere you look, and huge picture windows overlooking... More

If you and your family are looking for a relaxing place with an AMAZING VIEW, this is the place. The restaurant/bar is very inviting. Awesome food and great service as well. We have stayed at a few different places in the ADK's and this was by far the best one yet! Thank you and keep up the wonderful service.....

My husband and I spent Labor Day week-end, 2016, at Great Pines Resort and couldn't have been happier with the experience. We had never been there before the new owners took over and completely renovated it, so had no basis for comparison, but what they have done with it is beautiful. The decor is authentic Adirondack with rustic but comfortable... More

“Reserve a cabin for privacy but for comfort and a spectacular view choose a room at the Lodge. It's close to the dock and the restaurants.”
  • Staircase leading to the upper rooms above the Lodge.
  • Foyer/gift shop area as you come in the main door to the Lodge.
  • This is the beautiful staircase leading up to the rooms on the second floor.
  • Antler chandelier in the Great Room of the main Lodge.
  • This is the view you get from the buildings facing 4th Lake. Breathtaking, we said!
