Van Auken's Inne has welcomed guests to the Old Forge area since 1891. The historic character of this gracious inn is complimented by the adjacent Thendara station, home of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, which receives thousands of visitors annually. In 2015, the prohibition style Wakely’s Speakeasy was opened in the basement of the Inn bringing a much needed entertainment venue to this active tourism community. Upstairs, guests can dine in a stunning Victorian era dining room, on a grand front porch or in the tastefully renovated Stetson's Bar. Twelve guest rooms with private baths are located on the second floor, all with access to a large covered porch and a breakfast bar. A 2,000 square foot, three bedroom, three bath apartment is located on the third floor, with additional space for employee housing. Located minutes from the Village of Old Forge, the Fulton Chain of Lakes, McCauley Mountain Ski Area, and miles of groomed Snowmobile trails.
