ADK Fall Weekend Details
What: A fall weekend at an historic lodge on Raquette Lake in the Adirondacks. Activities include lots of great hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing (bring your own equipment). Check out The Wild Center in Tupper Lake; The Adirondack Scenic Railroad in Thendara; Revolution Rail Co. in North Creek; McCauley Mountain for chair lift rides and mountain biking. The Adirondack Experience in Blue Mountain Lake is definitely worth a visit as is the nearby Great Camp Sagamore. Please check the Old Forge area website for activities if you are looking for things to do. Or, just kick back, unplug and unwind.

Accommodations: The following rooms have a toilet, sink and shower:
Rooms #1 and the Backroom (sleep 2 or 3) and guests will have to use one of the two recently remodeled bathrooms in the hallway.
- Room #2 (sleeps 2 or 3)

- Room #4 (sleeps 2)
- Room #5 (sleeps 2 or 3)
There are also two half bathrooms in the downstairs with a toilet and sink. All rooms have single spring beds and bunk beds. You'll need to bring towels, a sleeping bag or sheets and blankets and your own pillow.
All of the rooms, including bedrooms, in the Main Lodge are heated. WiFi is available on the property, but cell service is spotty. AT&T seems to work well. This is an opportunity to unplug and reconnect with nature and friends.
The lodge's common areas are spacious and comfortable. All kitchen and cleaning supplies are provided. We have to clean up and leave the lodge as we found it. We always leave it better! There are complete kitchen facilities to prepare meals, including refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffeemaker, crockpots, pots and pans, and utensils, dishes and silverware. Bring your own breakfasts and plan your own lunches.
In the past, we have planned potluck dinners. Bring your choice of beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic and a cooler to keep them cold. Raquette Lake Navigation has offered a delicious dinner cruise on either Saturday or Sunday.
Read and agree to the Trip Policy when you register.
NOTE! Registration is set at 15 for more comfortable sleeping arrangements. If reservations are full, please add your name to the waitlist.
