This place and the owners are great. Anyone that likes to hike, ski, hunt, or fish won't find a better (& less traveled) place in the north country. It's right on the Oswegatchie. We love coming here: clean, quiet, great food and rooms. I can't say enough about the place, the owners Rick & Angie, and the area in general.

Rustic, clean lodge with healthy food and plentiful amenities. Rick and Angie are wonderful innkeepers. They know how to keep their guests comfortable. The lodge has spacious rooms, a large gathering area with fireplace and a welcoming retreat/dining area. Did I mention the setting is beautiful?

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 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
