COVID-19 Safety & Information

We’re Sanitizing Even What You Don't See

The check-in time of our cabins has been extended to allow us to use our new equipment, expand cleaning between guests and sanitize what you see and don't see.


Whatever Comes Next, We're Thinking About It Today

We’re closely monitoring the NY State Governor’s guidance. Our operations will undoubtedly change and we appreciate your patience and consideration in advance.

Our Expectations of Guests

We are a small family business simply trying to navigate what the new normal is while also trying to maintain the health of our guests and ourselves. We expect that our guests have taken great care and precaution, as we have, to self-quarantine and social distance. We know the Adirondacks is beloved to many which is why we’re opening our doors in a limited way. We will welcome guests who have self-quarantined for 14 days prior to arrival and who are feeling well and healthy. We expect our guests to be honest - that they have not come into contact with anyone that has had active COVID-19. Our rooms host 4 or fewer people. Only one room will be rented to each party. We will disallow congregating in groups of more than 10. This restriction may ease later in the summer. If you do not feel you can meet these expectations, please contact us to discuss.

If you’d like, we can contact you when your room is available.
