lodging around Gore

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've always done day trips to Gore Mt, but in January it looks like I am going up for 2-3 nights. Any recommendations on where to stay? I know there isn't too much up there, I looked on Gore's web page, but I can't really tell with some of them. I am looking for something around/under $100 a night(midweek). 2 people, preferably not a B&B, not a big fan of those. So if anyone has stayed anywhere up there, I'd appreceate it if you could share your experiences, negative and positive. Thanks

we always stay in either Lake George or Glens Falls ( 30 min away) more to do, better selection of motels etc , more resataurants at all levels . Eg. theres Days Inn , Sleep INN , Ramada and several other s in various price ranges and for off day skiing theres west mtn a 1000 vert hillin Glens Falls which is a nice 3rd day ski for a change of venue

Have fun

I stayed at this place one night: http://www.netheaven.com/alpine/

Clean and cheap, right in downtown North Creek (the town where Gore is), definitely not luxurious, I'd say maybe a few steps above 'spartan' (but all I wanted was an inexpensive place to sleep, ... as were a few others, all the cars in the PL had ski gear on the roof racks). A few places to eat and drink very close by. The whole town of North Creek (which isn't very big) has wireless internet access. If you're looking for high end digs, one block away is a high-priced hotel (Copperfield Inn) with a restaurant and bar. The bar there was OK to get a drink, ... small, quiet, mostly skiers.

I also noticed on the state highway from I-87 there were lots of B&B type places, that weren't listed on the Gore website.

how about these places

I want to stay fairly close, does anybody know anything about these places??

Any advice would be great, or if anybody knows of a condo or cabin or something that can be rented for only a few nights, that would be great too. Thanks.

I stayed at the Northwinds Lodge last February. Nuthin fancy but clean, comfortable and quiet. Not too expensive either. The owner was onsite and very nice. Check em out at http://www.northwindlodge.com/

I think it's quite a lot further than 30 minutes from Lake George to Gore, especially if you get stuck behind a Pepsi truck...:

So true. A drive from anywhere in North Creek will be ~ five minutes to the Gore parking lot.

We stayed at the Inn on Gore two years ago, one night. Clean, decent room.
The restaraunt on site is great for dinner-- food is good. Not open for breakfast, so you're on your own there. Very convenient to the mountain-5 minutes.

We also stayed at the Alp Horn Motel last year for two nights. Nice clean room as well. Owners are very friendly. I think they were just finishing up some room renovations last year. O.P. Fredericks has pretty good food as well. This one is about 15 minutes to Gore, if I remember right.

I knew Senator Al gained some weight but I didn't know he had been named a mountain. And lodging, is he that sedate?

no its actually a nicely underrated (i like em that way.. free of jersey/nyc/long island gapers) mountain in the adirondacks... on an interesting side note, the town next to the mountain has free wi fi all over... considering old al did invent the internet I find this to be possibly more than a coincidence

positive experience at valhaus. not a luxury experience but basic, reasonably priced room as close as you can get to the mountain. kind of an anti-b&b type place, not too cutesy.

I might have to look into that, cutesy makes me want to break shit. Although the GF is going too and I think she kinda likes cutesy. However we are both antisocial (except in a bar or on the hill) and don't like the touchy feely know everyone eat breakfast and take a shower together aspect of a B and B. Thanks for the tip.
