Dot & John - Still Crazy After All These 35 Years!
For over 150 years you could gaze at the surrounding mountains, breathe the fresh air, listen to the tunes of live music, smell the "good cookin'" wafting from the kitchen, visit with friends & strangers alike, and just kick back and enjoy life.
Today you can enjoy those same pleasures sitting on the porch of the Stony Creek Inn.
Located in the "Biggest Little Town in New York State" at the four corners - downtown Stony Creek, the Inn is nestled in the hub of the Southern Adirondack mountains within a half hour of Lake George, Queensbury, Glens Falls, Saratoga or the Gore Mountain Region.
Owner / Operator, Dot Bartell with her husband John Fickel are proud to have, for 35 years, provided a unique establishment with simple roots; good food & music, reasonable prices & a comfortable friendly setting to relax and enjoy family and friends.
Stony Creek Inn customers have nothing and much in common. They are diverse in age, culture, background, talent, careers & interests. They have a common love and appreciation for the Inn, for the friendships forged here and for the good memories they take with them.
To all our customers, thank you. To all else, try us - you might like us!

Stony Creek Inn, where have you been all my life?
By Cathy DeDe, July 31, 2014 - The Chronicle
It took us less than 30 minutes to drive from downtown Glens Falls to the Inn.
"Out There" in Stony Creek?
It's not so far!
WOW, our food was good.
...the spirit was light and lively, the dance floor busy, the blues smart, funny, deep and growly. (Folding Sky Band with Mark Emanation)
Kids and grandmas danced. So did the beautiful Adirondackers – A convivial crowd of kayak types, bikers, cowboys, locals and summer folks. Long pony tails on men and women, tank tops and skirts, jeans and cowboy hats, two-step specialists, rock and roll hip-swingers and regular folk of all stripes: everyone seemed just in it for the fun.

"Excellent food, always cooked to order at an amazingly low price, world-class musicians, a variety of friendly, happy patrons whose camaraderie and grinning faces are contagious, and a dance floor packed with uninhibited, twirling, foot-stomping glee. The scrumptious smells from the kitchen follow you inside and outside - there is no escape - you will have to eat something while you're here." - By Kim & Pam Ladd @ Adirondack Almanac
