About The Adirondacks of New York

The Adirondack Park is roughly the size of Vermont and bigger than the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park combined. It stretches over nearly a third of New York State. This beautiful land, which today looks very much like it did more than 10,000 years ago, is less than a day's drive for everyone in the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada. This six million acre natural sanctuary of public and and private land is protected under the state constitution. It is America's largest wilderness preserve outside of Alaska and one of the most successful conservation efforts in history. Come stay at our Adirondack lodging accommodations to enjoy all these beautiful surroundings.

Spring brings the promise of Summer. After what may seem like an interminable winter to some, lengthening daylight hours and warmer temperatures are welcome signs. (Spring skiing in New York is often favored, for the same reason, and can last well into April). The maples have been tapped since February and "sugaring" is in full swing until nighttime freezes end. (The sap flow slows and loses its sweetness). The rivers are over-flowing with snowmelt and whitewater rafters and kayakers. Take a guided whitewater rafting trip on the Hudson River. Trees are budding and birds sing their best songs. Garage sales abound, and antique shops are full of wares, in anticipation of a busy season.

Book your Adirondack lodging early as summertime is the big season in the Adirondack North Country. There are concerts in the parks, antique shows and auctions, arts & craft fairs, lake cruises, excursion trains, rodeos, bike trails, swimming, boating, wilderness and Adirondack hiking, golf, tennis, horseback riding, fishing, farm stands and numerous craft and antique shops. Excellent well-maintained highways and byways through scenic farmland along Lake Champlain and through the mountains of the "High Peaks" afford great day trips with spectacular scenery and "round-the-bend" surprises.  

Fall is the Adirondacks most beautiful season, if color is a criterion! Maples, oaks, all the hardwoods turn unbelievably bright colors. Cool crisp nights and sunny days coupled with fewer people make this the favorite season of many. This is the season for great Adirondack Mountain hiking or driving through the countryside.

Winter brings visions of a cozy, romantic get-away, with crackling fires, hot toddies, and brisk outdoor fun. This is the area of the Adirondacks that brought you the Winter Olympics, in 1932 and again in 1980!  You'll find great New York skiing - downhill at Whiteface Mountain, and Nordic at Mount VanHoevenburg (now known as The Verizon Sports Complex), as well as snowshoeing, ice skating, and the chance to see bobsled, luge and ski jumping facilities near Lake Placid New York. Keene Valley is in the heart of the High Peaks Region, where backcountry Adirondack hiking, camping and ice climbing will challenge your survivor skills. The highest mountain in New York State Mt. Marcy, offers some great hikes, and is the source of the Hudson River.
