Loved it! My daughter Maggie and I stayed at the Packbasket in early November and was very happy and comfortable. The owners, Angie and Rick (and the pup Irish), are exceptionally nice and accommodating. Rick, a Ranger alum, was a great resource for my daughter to chat with since we were up in Wanakena to tour the Ranger school's campus.... More

We had a great week at Packbasket in Sept. Rick & Angie went out of their way to make everything perfect. Great food. Great advice on where to hike. Great place to stay and we will be back! Jim/Debbie

We spent a wonderful 3 days at Packbasket. We wanted to feel really remote, while hiking and paddling and exploring the Adirondacks. Packbasket delivered all that and more! I've never heard such quiet, and on our hikes and walks we had the woods to ourselves. Rick and Angie pointed us to good places to hike and paddle (and staged the... More

This is lovely newish B&B in a rustic Adirondack style. It's in a charming location. We were there in late August. The bedrooms are great (we had Bear). The common areas are very nice. The Wifi is very good. The breakfast room is excellent, and Rick makes an excellent breakfast. The building was well designed. One plus is that none... More

Wonderful up-to-date, yet rustic lodge in Wanakena. Great food (our group is definitely "foodies"), attentive and knowledgeable staff. Bedrooms and common areas were roomy and well-appointed. Computer available for those who must be connected. If you like backcountry skiing, snowshoeing and relaxing with friends this is the place for you.

We love the Packbasket, Wanakena, and Cranberry Lake. Rick is a very knowledgeable fly fisherman and helped us a lot with gear and a canoe. Breakfast was great and we both looked forward to it. We would definitely stay there again. We regards to other comments about the owners, make a little effort and it will be rewarded. Gary and... More

What a great find - a 4 bedroom log cabin B&B - modern facilities yet rustic....in a quaint little Adirondack hamlet of Wanakena....near the Oswegatchie river. Not a fancy resort with activities laid out for you but a beautiful (new) building, nice living area and huge bedrooms/baths ...within walk of the general store and the babbling river. Stay here next... More

We stayed at PackBasket for two nights last week and had a delightful time. The breakfasts and dinner were first rate, and included a vegetarian option for me, which I greatly appreciated. Rick seems to have a boundless knowledge of the region and when he heard that we were there to hike, he immediately provided maps and good advice. And... More

The lodge itself is lovely. We were impressed by the rooms. All is very woodsy and full of pine. We got our orientation from Rick and although he seemed impersonal and rushed ( rather on “cruise control”) we were delighted by the looks of the place in the woods and even talked about coming back to go fly fishing next...

Rickov, Owner at Packbasket Adventures, responded to this review

Our goal has always been to provide a great Adirondack experience for our guests, many of whom have become dear friends. This is the first time in our 9 years of operation we felt compelled to make such an offer to someone staying with us. Without going into detail, we believe were justified in doing so in the best interest... More
