Discover the Rustic Charm of Garnet Hill Lodge

Whether you love exploring the outdoors or are looking for your next Adirondack vacation destination, Garnet Hill Lodge is the place to be. Nestled on a gentle hill in a secluded area, this classic Adirondack lodge offers the perfect opportunity for couples, families, friends, and groups to reconnect and enjoy fun activities together.

The property features the Log House (main lodge with guest rooms) and the Tea House and The Birches, two cottages located in the woods a short distance from the Log House.

The Log House

Ideal for 2-5 people, the nicely appointed guest rooms in the Log House come with private baths and daily housekeeping. You can wake up to a wonderful view in a balcony room, or stay in a smaller, cozier standard room. The lodge has quiet sitting areas and a separate family room with ping pong, billiards, board games, and a big screen TV.

The Tea House and The Birches

Larger groups of 4-6 people should consider a room in the Tea House or The Birches. Both lodging properties offer spacious and modern rooms with private baths, televisions, and mini-fridges, and some also include microwaves.

Satisfy Your Craving for Delicious Cuisine

Every overnight stay at Garnet Hill Lodge includes a hearty breakfast in the morning, but guests and day visitors can also enjoy lunch and dinner at the on-site restaurants. The Log House Restaurant uses fresh, authentic ingredients to create appealing American dishes with an Adirondack twist. The dining room has a warm, intimate environment with tables by the fireplace and on the porches overlooking the lake and mountains. Or, kick back and relax in the Log House Pub.

You can also order lunch food from the Bobcat Bar and Grill on the second floor of the Garnet Hill Outdoor Center (temporarily closed).

Enjoy Activities at the Outdoor Center Year Round

Not only is Garnet Hill a four-season lodge, but your stay gives you direct access to many of the best outdoor sports and activities in the Adirondacks.

Spring, Summer & Fall

In spring, summer, and fall, guests can enjoy Garnet Hill's beach and trail system (located right outside the door) at no extra charge, as well as complimentary use of canoes and kayaks. The Lodge maintains a fleet of canoes and kayaks that guests can sign out at the Outdoor Center and then use down at the lake. A beach attendant is available to assist during midday hours, from 11:00am-6:00pm. Bike rentals are available to rent as well for lodging guests and visitors.

If you love hiking, mountain biking, paddling, fishing, or swimming, you can do it all right here at Garnet Hill Lodge. The friendly and well-informed staff at the Outdoor Center can help you get started on your next adventure.


In winter, the Outdoor Center transforms into one of the region's top Nordic sports centers. Garnet Hill's property features 35 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and six different snowshoe trails. Cross-country ski and snowshoe trail passes are included with every stay, so you can wake up in the morning, step outside, and head out on the snowy forest trails.

The Outdoor Center also offers a full-service ski shop that's open seven days a week all winter long, weather and conditions permitting. The shop is fully stocked with equipment, wax, boots, and clothing, and their services include repairs and adjustments, rentals, lessons, tours, and more.
