Guests exclaim "What a find!" when they enter the warmth and beauty of Red Pines. Located on the shore of Lake Pleasant with direct access to snowmobile trails in winter and beach in summer it is in a class by itself. A hearty breakfast overlooking the changing scenes of lake and mountains, use of property and trails, canoe, hammock, sunset deck, fireplace in common area, library, friendly yellow lab and a warm reception await you at this comfortable home-away-from- home. Relax or take advantage of all the Adirondacks have to offer while engulfed in a tranquil setting.

Although the food was exemplary, staying at Red Pines is not about the breakfast. Yes, there are beds and you also get breakfast. But that's not the secret. Staying at Red Pines is about the setting and the innkeeper. The Setting: A most magnificent secluded little point on Lake Pleasant with a sunset view (house side) or sunrise view (beach side). Red Pines has a private beach, trails, canoe and kayak and 52 acres of quiet. The accommodations are warm, comfortable and definitely ADK. Make sure you get directions as this is NOT on the main road. The Innkeeper: Diane is amazing. Her friendly demeanor is never overbearing and she is always available. Interesting conversations will emerge in the normal course, and she might even jump in for a friendly late night game of Scrabble. The Difference: Most B&B's have a dividing line between the Inn and the Innkeeper. At Red Pines, you are a guest in Diane's most magnificent home and feel like you are staying with a lifelong friend. Diane is the person that makes an already special place more special. My wife and 10 year old son stayed two nights over labor day weekend. It was sad to leave and we look forward to our next visit. Not if, but when. Stay a while, you’ll see what I mean. Simply extraordinary.

We only stayed one night; if we had only known what a charming place it was we would have planned to stay longer. We will definitely be back and stay at least 2 nights...hopefully 3. The breakfast is outstanding! What a beautiful home and the scenery is gorgeous.

Red Pines B&B is an amazing place. Diane did a great job with the house and was an excellent and helpful host. It has everything you can ask for - great views, amazing private beach, secluded location etc. The breakfasts exceeded our expectations. We visited for a cold and snowy weekend in April but really enjoyed reading in front of the roaring fire. Hope to return in summer and enjoy the lake.

Our stay at Red Pines was beautiful and serene. After a long day of traveling Diane was extremely accommodating (we were last minute guests) and cared for us as if we had known her for years and years! The beautiful Christmas tree, the roaring fire in the grand fireplace...it was all welcoming. After a wonderful night's sleep in a very comfortable king size bed we were refreshed with a yummy and hearty breakfast while looking out over a snow covered Lake Pleasant. A truly beautiful sight! We highly recommend staying here and hope to return again someday!
