This is a wonderful lodge that is about 4.7 miles up and around an Adirondack "mountain" off of NYS Rte 28 in North River,NY. It is near Gore Mtn and North Creek,NY. It is a bit on the pricey side, but it includes whatever you want for breakfast, which was very good. Their motto is "unplug and recharge" and thus there are no TVs or phones in the rooms. There is a TV and phone available for your use in the family room. They have a billiard room, table tennis room, canoes, kayaks, paddle boats all included for your use. We took a balcony room, which was worth the little extra, as it had a wonderful view of 13th lake, backed up by a mountain range where the sun set. The lack of area lights provides a wonderful night sky with the stars looking like shining diamonds. The room was plenty spacious and the bed very comfortable. There is also a Garnet mine just down the hill a bit that you can visit in the summer season, but in Sept it is only open to visitors on weekends. It is a x-country ski & snowshoe center with downhill skiing just a few miles away at Gore Mtn. There are also many mountain bike & hiking trails right there. Not the easiest to get to but well worth it.
