Marion, Joe and Rascal made my visit an absolute great experience. A must place to visit while in the ADK. And I loved shopping there! Marion makes a mean drink and be sure to ask for a side of jalapeños with your chili!
Walk into the Stillwater Hotel and meet your new best friends, Marian and Joe. They'll show you around, introduce you to their friends, and make sure you feel at home. Then they'll serve you the best meal you've had in ages, with a few extra treats that you didn't even order. Your room will be no-frills but have everything you need -- a comfortable bed and a hot shower.

Be sure to take the boat ride out to Beaver River as that is also a great place. Can't wait to go back next year. Great little town for the family or couples looking for somewhere quiet and relaxed.

The wine and beer lists are outstanding, especially out here in the remote wilderness of the Adirondacks, at the end of a country road, which is unpaved for several of the final miles. The hosts, Marian and Joe, a married couple who turned innkeepers out of passion after their retirement and perhaps to share their talents as chefs with the world, were kind to us and to us seemed genuinely interested in all of their guests and our…
