This update was posted on 5/16/2022. It contains our most current lodging and guiding policies for 2022.
Our plan is to continue offering just group lodging for 2022. We will rent both our buildings – The Guide’s House and The Climber’s Lodge – to self-contained groups/families only. We will not offer any meals. For smaller groups and families, or for longer stays, we will offer reduced rates. Call us to discuss – 518-576-2041.
Because we live next-door, we can talk with our guests outside and answer questions/give advice as needed – especially regarding excellent hiking, climbing, paddling, swimming and skiing options.
Reservations can be made online for one or both buildings. We now have a 3 night minimum for all new bookings (except for the months of May and June). We sometimes are lenient on this requirement (weekdays etc.) so call to discuss. 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 – or simply call us!
Availability for Summer of 2022
Both the Guide’s House and Climber’s Lodge have many open dates in May and June of 2022 and the Climber’s Lodge is still open for Memorial Day weekend!
For July, both buildings are almost fully booked. We have and opening for the Guide’s House during Ironman weekend. It’s available the nights of 7/22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28.
For August, the Climber’s Lodge is fully booked (although there are 2 periods consisting of 3 weekday nights in mid and late August that we could possibly sneak someone in). The Guide’s House has just one available period in August – that being a 7 night stretch beginning with the night of Thursday, 8/4. This is an excellent period to be in the Adirondacks!
For September, the Climber’s Lodge is fully booked and the Guide’s House has openings for the entire week – 9/15 through 9/22 (3 night minimum required). For those regulars that miss staying here – we have decided to rent out individual rooms in the Guide’s House for 3 nights – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights, 9/12, 13 and 14!
For October, the Climber’s Lodge has an opening for the 3 nights beginning with the night of 10/3 (peak foliage!) and another 3 night opening beginning with the night of 10/17. The Guide’s House is available from the night of Monday 10/17 through the rest of October…
We are closed for November…
For 2023, the Climber’s Lodge has become available for Martin Luther King weekend. If a group wants to book it and possibly start a tradition of keeping it for future years, they can book it for 2023 and have first rights for succeeding years! This facility and weekend works perfectly for hiking/skiing clubs as well as families and friends…
Because all our guides are vaccinated, we will be providing rock and ice guiding through our Private Guiding program to individuals as well as small, self-contained groups such as families and/or friends, year-round. We will continue to offer Group Guiding to institutional groups but unless they are at our Ice Park, they will have to break up into two groups if more than 6 clients, especially during weekends/busy periods. This is the direction climbing is headed in the Adirondacks and is simply the responsible thing to do…We will continue to offer hiking guiding as always…
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 will need to provide their own transportation thus driving separately from their guide
- Clients will need to provide their own lunches, snacks and fluids
- All clients must be vaccinated and boosted through the winter of 2022 (unless under 12 years old or having a legitimate medical reason).
