The house is just beautiful. Our room was very comfortable. There is a shower and a ball and claw foot tub, which was great to relax in. My husband and I loved sitting down stairs in the sitting room to read, the cats loved sitting with us. The river runs right behind the house and its nice and slow, good...

Stayed here with my friends. The hosts were incredibly nice and the house is perfect for a quiet and relaxing trip.

Our hosts Kris & Jim were meticulous in their efforts to provide a pleasant experience. Their home was "comfy" with room galore. Bon Appetit couldn't have planned and served a tastier breakfast. Worked well as a central hub for our hikes and the Lake Placid area. With 35+ years B&B experience, we rate this one of the best.

My boyfriend and I only stayed at the Woodruff house for one night (after 2 days of intense hiking in the Adirondacks) but the experience was just so pleasant that we wished to have stayed longer...Kristen and Jim are wonderful hosts who really did everything to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The breakfast was as delicious as the house...

If I have a choice between a B&B and hotel, the B&B will win every time. The Woodruff House is the BEST B&B I have ever stayed at, hands down! When your daughter asks if she can go downstairs and hug the owners for the teddy bear and chocolates left on her special bed you know you have a winner....

We loved this Bed and Breakfast in the beautiful Adirondacks. Jim and Kristen Hardman received us into their home as if we were family. They are very gracious, the house is awesome, decorated with the most beautiful antique furniture (you could see that it was furnished by a real professional!) and the breakfast was to die for. We would like...

Woodruff House is delightful and Kristen and Jim Hardman make it just like home...if your home was a thoughtfully decorated historic house in the middle of bucolic Elizabethtown, NY. Our son stayed in the cupola - had a quiet space all to himself. The porch is a wonderful spot for reading, enjoying a drink before dinner, and for admiring the...

We had a really lovely time during our brief stay (one night, en route to Montreal.) We arrived late in the evening and were welcomed by Jim -- who showed us around even at that late hour and made us feel very much at home. We were two adults with our 7-year-old son and Kris had assured us beforehand that...

Woodruff House owners Kristen and Jim Hardman do a wonderful job of making guests feel very welcome in their lovingly restored, historic house.

She prepares a delicious and extremelely generous...

Casual elegance in a neat old home shared with three fat, friendly cats on the Boquet River. Wi-Fi, gourmet country breakfast and beverages 'round the campfire' are included.
