This update was posted on 7/19/2021. It contains our most current lodging and guiding policies for the upcoming year (2021).
Let me begin by stating that we take the virus very seriously – still! Rest assured – all of our staff and all of our guides are fully vaccinated…
Our plan is to continue offering mostly group lodging this Spring/Summer/Fall of 2021. Because we miss many of our regular customers, we will, on rare occasion, open up our Guide’s House to individual room rentals (without breakfast but kitchen use is available). Right after Labor Day (starting 9/8/21) for a couple of weeks will be our first “Throwback Rental Period”. Call if you want to come here during this very beautiful and less crowded period to hike, climb or simply relax. Only those that are vaccinated will be allowed to rent a room and a 3 night minimum will apply. Most of the season, we will rent both our buildings – The Guide’s House and Climber’s Lodge – to self-contained groups/families only. For smaller groups and families, we will continue to offer reduced rates when renting a whole building. Call us to discuss. 518-576-2041
We will continue to not serve breakfasts nor provide trail lunches in 2021. Information has been posted as to where one can find take-out meals/pizza, delis, bakeries and grocery stores, all of which are located nearby in town.
Because we live next-door and all our staff and guides are vaccinated, we can talk with our guests outside and answer questions/give advice as needed – especially regarding excellent hiking, climbing, paddling and swimming options.
Reservations can now be made online for one or both buildings. We recommend that you call to book just to make sure you understand what we have to offer. Our # is 518-576-2041.
For those seeking further information, our rates and building descriptions can be found under the Lodging – Group Rentals section of our website.
Because all our guides are vaccinated, we will be providing rock guiding through our Private Guiding program to individuals as well as small, self-contained groups such as families and/or friends this Spring, Summer and Fall. As of now, larger, institutional groups (colleges, scouts etc.) will not be accepted.
We will also continue to offer hiking guiding this upcoming Spring/Summer/Fall season.
In order to make the guiding experience as safe as possible, we’ll need to vary from our previous guiding procedures in several minor ways. These include:
- Clients will need to wear masks while getting geared up indoors
- Clients that are not vaccinated will need to provide their own transportation thus driving separately from their guide
- Clients will need to provide their own lunches, snacks and fluids
For more information regarding rates and further guiding details, look under Rock Guiding on our website. To book a guide or ask questions, please call 518-576-2041…
