Private, cozy fully equipped cabin in members-only Garnet Hill set in the Adirondack forest. Ski in/out in winter. Sun deck, gas fireplace, grill and screened in porch. 100 yards from trailheads. Access to protected 13th Lake with sandy beach. Two one-seat kayaks come with the rental. Mountain biking (cabin is on the trails), white water rafting, and tubing nearby. Please note: this is a NOT a hotel/condo nor a dedicated Airbnb. it is our family vacation home of 27 years, not a place to "crash".

The space
Winter: Ski in-ski out! Note: you must walk 100 ft up a slight hill in the snow and climb 3 stairs to enter the house in winter. The cabin is on the trail system! Park at the ski shop. A cross-country skiing mecca, this cozy cabin is in the heart of a winter wonderland. enjoy the peaceful woods or if you wish, a short drive to Gore mountain for downhill skiing. End the day with a cocktail and/or dinner at the garnet hill lodge in front of their huge fireplace walking distance from the house or cook in the fully equipped kitchen. Charming town nearby with great restaurants, cafe, lunch counters, gift shops and groceries.

Summer: Stay cool this summer in this lovely forest cabin that is steps away from miles of forever wild forest trails, walk to the gorgeous 13th lake private sandy beach with picnic area that's great for families (or a short drive, parking on site) for a refreshing swim and sun, the Garnet Hill Lodge, mountain bike rental shop (trails outside the door!). Also right by the ski shop below the house (house is private and tucked away from sight) are the tennis courts and a basketball hoop. Fantastic hiking steps away from your door with many trails with ponds and an abandoned garnet mine. The view in the pic is from a hike into the old garnet mine, the trail is steps away from the house. A short drive will take you to even more vigorous and scenic hiking. Gorgeous camping and kayaking on the no motor boat lake! Scenic road riding and great mountain biking right out your front door! Shopping and restaurants in nearby North Creek. Also nearby (10 min drive down the hill) are a ropes climbing course, paintball and best white water rafting and tubing in the glorious Hudson. Lake George is a mere 40 minutes south for water parks, awesome rock-climbing, parasailing, amusements and arcades, restaurants, mini-golf and ferry rides! Further north is the amazing Adirondack Museum with it's stunning tree-top feature. Great for sunny and rainy days (we have board games and tons of movies).

Where you’ll be

North Creek, New York, United States

The neighborhood is Garnet Hill, a private community that is beautifully maintained in the Central Adirondacks, Most homes on 5 acre lots and owners tend to simply love the outdoors. You can meet the locals at the lodge's small tavern with a wonderful fireplace. The lodge restaurant serves local trout!

This was my mother’s cherished ADK home. My mother, a famous Journalist wrote she “loved Garnet Hill, the lake, the hiking and ski trails, the quiet, the lodge, the rain on the roof, and most of all my cabin, with its screened in porch and writing desk with wifi". She has passed away and has left her beloved vacation home that we shared for many years, to me, her daughter. I hope it brings you and your family as much joy and peace as it brought my mother and my family over the years. About me? I'm a personal trainer, bike racer, x-country and downhill skiier who also somehow has time to be a mother to 2 great kids. We live in upper UPPER! NYC, but get upstate to the Dacks as often as possible. We all grew up visiting grandma and are forever grateful for the opportunities she gave us to enjoy North Creek, 13th Lake, Garnet hill and it's environs. We love to share how to maximize your trip! Just ask and we shall spill all! Peace. Shasta Jensen
