The historic Big Moose Inn is a great old Victorian hunting lodge hotel on a beautiful Lake. It has many historic stories that happened there, and a couple of movies. The beer fests are fun, the food is good and a large menu. The owners are great tourist guides. There is internet service,but no phones in the rooms. A car...

The Big Moose Inn in Eagle Lake NY rates at the top of all the resorts we have stayed in. Mark's friendly help in making our reservation was only the beginning! Resort, location, room, staff....... Fantastic!

Let me start by saying the people are very nice, but the place is much to be desired. The first day there was much to like. But that soon ended as you walked into the room. The doors do not close good and the lights are not good at all. We did have a "view" of the lake and that...

We stayed here twice this past summer, and both times were amazing! The staff was helpful, friendly, happy and overall awesome! Room and bathroom a bit small, but the bed was amazing, slept like a baby... We hung out on the porch in the rocking chairs, played OVERSIZED checkers in the gazebo, went for a (provided) kayak ride, had a...

We had a wonderful visit to the Big Moose Inn, the room was clean and spacious. Excellent dining options, we ate on the deck overlooking the lake, in the bar and in the formal dining room. The food was great in all! Nothing can beat the view of the lake! Mark & Sue are great hosts and make us feel...

So my bf and I stayed here along with friends who had other rooms. All of us were HIGHLY disappointed with our rooms and one couple even had the "honeymoon suite". The place is old, dingy, and NO AC. It was very hard for my boyfriend to open the windows. We were woken up by the cleaning lady vacuuming at...

Very friendly staff. We enjoyed waking up to an early morning view of the mist on the lake. We had fun fishing from their docks for some little perch. The diner was delicious and exceeded our expectations.

We had a beautiful view of Big Moose Lake from our third floor room. There are no elevators and this is the only floor air conditioned. In this area of New York Ac is not usually required. We opted for the extra flight to get the view of the lake. The Inn has wonderful dinners and the included breakfast is...

My family has a camp in Old Forge for 40+ years and Big Moose has always been the place to go for us when it comes time for a great meal, company and view. This past weekend was my 10th anniversary with my wife and she chose BMI as our night out without the kids. I had purchased 2 dozen...

The owners are wonderful - friendly and accommodating. We meet a group of friends here twice a year, and always enjoy wonderful service and food. The rooms are cozy and clean and it is a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Close to hiking, towns, and in the summer free kayak and canoeing on the lake!
