Amazing B&B!

5 on September 21, 2015

My husband and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary at the Lamplight. Everything was absolutely wonderful. We really didn't want to leave! The breakfast was wonderful. Linda & Gene (and staff) were friendly, helpful and attentive. I can't wait to plan a return visit.

My wife and I have stayed here each of the last two years and we plan on going back every summer for as long as we can. The hosts are fabulous, the food is second to none, and something about this place allows you to relax and de-stress the moment you step inside. I highly recommend it.

Outstanding B&B

We just returned from staying at the Lamplight Inn. We were very comfortable, and enjoyed the gas fireplace and jacuzzi . We had a superb dinner at a local restaurant, which they recommended then went for a short walk in the woods. The breakfast was delicious. We look forward to returning to this lovely and elegant B&B .

We'll Be Back

5 on February 03, 2015

We didn't want to leave. The room was warm, even on a bitter cold night, and service was excellent. Gene and Linda provided just the right balance of attention and privacy for our 30th anniversary weekend. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, no need for lunch. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. We left looking for an excuse to come back soon.

Wonderful Weekend Away

5 on January 20, 2015

My girlfriend and I spent a weekend at the Lamplight Inn and we stayed in the Woodside Romance Suite and were not disappointed. The room was clean and comfortable; the food was wonderful; and, the owners and their employees were helpful and professional and always had a smile. The room was quiet and even when there were several other occupants in the carriage house it felt private and helped make our weekend romantic. The jacuzzi tub in the room and the fireplace didn't hurt either.

My husband and I stayed in the guest house in back for two last weekend. It was a cold weekend but the in room fireplace kept us toasty and comfortable. The jacuzzi tub for two was also a nice treat. The inn keepers and staff were extrordinarily pleasant and helpful. Gene is a great cook, breakfast was the best I have had in any bed and breakfast thus far, and hotel for that matter! Linda makes all the breads and they are fabulous along with homemade granola and fresh fruit salad. We will definitely be back! This place will not disappoint you¿¿

Excellent Getaway B&B in the Adirondacks!

Stayed here for July 4th weekend, and it was exceptional! Beautifully appointed, meticulously maintained, wonderful breakfasts (specials and a menu selection) with waitstaff employees, very charming. Walk to swim beach. Also highly recommend UpRiver Cafe just around the corner for dining on the River.

Perfect Getaway

5 on April 01, 2014

In 2012, my husband surprised me with a weekend getaway at this Inn as I have never experienced an inn stay before. We loved it! Gene and Linda were wonderful and the service between them and their staff were outstanding. So very relaxing. This year, we went back as a birthday present to my husband as I felt he deserved the best. Lamplight Inn is the best and I am looking forward to our next getaway there! :)

Perfect Winter Weekend Getaway

My fiancée and I took a long weekend off and stayed here in early February. The innkeepers were some of the friendliest we've met and made our stay comfortable and relaxing. The inn itself is beautiful, and the suite we had was ample and well-maintained. We would definitely stay again!
