The original structure dates back to 1936, and over the years the Lodge has served as a special place for couples and families to gather, reconnect, and enjoy all the Adirondack region has to offer. Located on a gentle hill overlooking a beautiful pristine lake, with miles of private trails and surrounded by forever wild protected state land, the lodge is the focal point of a special place that offers guests and visitors options for activity as well as rest and relaxation.
Over the years, Garnet Hill has become nationally known for the excellence of its cross country skiing, both trails and programs. It is widely acknowledged to be one of the very best Nordic ski centers in the country. Winter opens up 50 km of beautifully groomed cross-country ski trails, countless miles of backcountry and snowshoe trails and it’s only 15 minutes to downhill skiing at Gore Mountain.
