Start planning your Adirondack vacation in this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom getaway for 4 guests at the Adirondack Ranch. The holiday rental house is a great place to unwind and relax in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. The cabin has a full kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom, and loft. There is an outdoor space that is ready to enjoy with a 12 by 12 deck, grill, fire pit, picnic tables, and a view. You can sit on the deck and see down to the horse pasture and watch the sunset. Close by you have Lake George about 13 minutes away, Gore Mountain about 20 minutes away, plenty of hiking trails in Crane Mountain 10 minutes away. If you like tubing or kayaking the Hudson River is only 3 miles away along with many other water and activities within a short drive. There is also outlet shopping just south of Lake George on Rt 9, with your choice of over 50 outlet stores all in one area. The cabin is close to all of the area amenities, activities, and events but far enough to enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature. No pets allowed. The Adirondack Ranch provides an excellent home base for your stay in the area, with things to enjoy all year long. The following are some of the seasonal activities you can try.
Adirondack Winter. To celebrate the best of the snowy season, there is a week-long Winter Carnival that brings together communities and visitors with cast iron frying pan tosses, parades, and pageantry. Outside of town, winter explorers snowshoe and cross-country ski across snow-laden trails. The most adventurous of winter things to do is winter camping in the Adirondacks. Stop by a local outfitter or guide service for winter conditions and safety advice.
Spring in the Adirondacks. Springtime has become a popular season amongst the upstate New York region's residents. The warmer days get the sap flowing from sugar maple trees, which eventually gets used on a stack of pancakes. You can visit Adirondack maple syrup cabins, and sample the maple sweetness. Melting snow means more water in streams and brooks, and that means spectacular waterfalls pop up only a short hike in from the trailheads. With the snow gone from barren tree branches, more vistas overlooking the region await.
Summer in the Adirondacks. This is the perfect time to visit the Adirondack Mountains and lakes. Once there, avid hikers will want to venture into the 46 High Peaks. Shorter hiking trails also abound, providing fantastic views along the way. Take Rooster Comb, a moderate 2.5-mile trek with stunning views. As the sun sticks around later and later into the evenings, lakeshores become a popular spot for swimming and picnic dinners. You can soak up the mountain lake vibes while paddling a kayak or visiting a public beach. To surround yourself with nature while learning about the Adirondack, boat tours are available all summer long on lakes throughout the area, such as aboard the Lake George Steamboat Company’s famous Minne-Ha-Ha.
