Explore places to rest & relax.

The Adirondack Region has been a place for rejuvenation and reconnection for centuries. Although the first settlers cleared timbered lots to build rustic cabins, current lodging options range from simple to indulgent. Luxury resorts crafted in the Great Camp architectural style feature lakeside rooms and charming mountain cabins. Lodging at an Adirondack B&B or hotel often leads to local connections -- meaning you get insider knowledge of the area's best dining choices and adventure spots!

Don't leave a family member behind either. Pet-friendly hotels and resorts can be found in nearly every major town. After finding a place to stay, grab a leash and explore over 2,000 miles of Adirondack hiking trails which are pet-friendly, unless posted.

Looking for seclusion and privacy? Choose an intimate cabin or lakefront cottage. Adirondack cabin rentals offer peace and seclusion, getting you away from the busy-ness of life and allowing you to focus on reconnecting with nature. And when you're ready for an afternoon or evening in town, check out one of the many Adirondack breweries. With every sip, you'll get a taste of the Adirondacks.

The Adirondack Regions
The Adirondack Regions feature over 100 welcoming communities, mountains, lakes, verdant valleys and steep cliffs. Spanning more than six million acres, the Adirondack Mountains are home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48 of the United States. Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of twelve distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the endless canoeing and kayaking in the Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake regions, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region - discover an area as diverse in geography as it is in activities and events. Bicycle between wineries on the Adirondack Coast, or dive to sunken shipwrecks in the Adirondack Seaway near the Canadian Border. You're invited to explore the Lake George Region's family-friendly attractions and discover the Adirondack Tug Hill Plateau's one-of-a-kind recreation opportunities.
