Additional Wilderness Experience Information
“Set amid more than 12,000 acres in a 'spectacular' 'Adirondack location', this 'lovely, low-key' lakeside resort (circa 1904) offers charming 'individual cabins' as well as rooms in its main lodge; it's 'great for quiet boating and hiking', as well as fishing, swimming and canoeing surrounded by beautiful mountains; guests have speedboat-free Elk Lake and Clear Pond entirely to themselves and can enjoy 45 miles of pristine trails; the room rate includes three meals and it's an easy five-hour drive from New York or Boston, so most find it's a great 'family or romantic' getaway; N.B. it's open May-October.”
