Summer is the time for a relaxing vacation at a classic Adirondack summer resort. Just a short drive from the Capital District and most points in NY and NJ, a visit to Garnet Hill takes you to another world — a world of relaxation, outdoor fun and immersion in nature. Once you arrive at Garnet Hill, you can put your car keys and cell phones down and get back to the things in your life that are truly important — family and friends.
Without leaving our campus you can hike, swim, paddle, fish, ride mountain bikes, play tennis or just sit back in an Adirondack chair to relax and read a book.
In fall the beautiful Adirondack scenery surrounding the Lodge is at its best. As the leaves turn color the views from the Loghouse looking out over the mountains and Thirteenth Lake are nothing short of spectacular. This is a wonderful time of the year for hiking the trails in the surrounding forest or paddling the many lakes and rivers in the area.
Whatever the season, your stay at the Lodge gives you direct access to many activities at no extra charge, plus we can arrange for any off-site activities. Our Adventure Concierge will help you select, schedule and prepare for the outdoor activities that you enjoy.
Hiking, mountain biking, swimming and paddling are at your disposal to choose from as you like. Our tennis courts are available for you to play on as singles or doubles.
Our guest lounge is located in the Log House and is a very comfortable suite of rooms where guests can relax, enjoy watching television together or read a book. There is also a separate room with a pool table for you to enjoy and have some competitive family fun.
