COVID-19 Safety & Information

We’re Sanitizing Even What You Don't See

The check-in time of our cabins has been extended to allow us to use our new equipment to air out each cabin between guests and sanitize what you see and don't see.

Our Expectations of Guests

We are a small family business simply trying to navigate what the new normal is while also trying to maintain the health of our guests and ourselves. We expect that our guests have taken great care and precaution. We expect that all guests follow the New York State COVID protocols in place at this time.


What can I expect at check-In?  
If you have a balance and security deposit due, it will still be payable at time of check-in (prior to access to the cabin).
Do I need to wear a face covering? 
Unvaccinated individuals must wear face coverings when in public areas such as the WiFI porch, in our local grocery stores, etc. Our staff has been fully vaccinated.

Can I check in early or have a late departure?  
We are sorry we can not honor any early arrivals or late departures this season. For guests who launch a boat off-property on their day of arrival, you may park your car and boat trailer in our boat trailer parking lot - to arrange permission for this, please contact us 24 hours in advance of your arrival. For guests without a boat, we highly recommend you make your travel arrangements in conjunction with an outdoor activity along the way to allow you to abide by our later check-in. If you’d like, we can contact you when your cabin is available.
Are the lakes “open”?  
Yes, lakes are “open”. From Kiwassa Lake (where you’ll be), you may travel to several lakes and into the Village of Saranac Lake. If you’d like to travel to Lower Saranac Lake, you may go through the Lower Locks (manual system available until they open later this year; for current status, contact the DEC at 518-897-1200).
What do I need to know about hiking trails?
Please wear a face mask and understand that trail heads and parking may be limited. However, recreation is still encouraged/essential and you’ll find lots of tips/information or via Guidance from ADK Mountain Club
Can I get a fishing license?
Our local shops sell fishing licenses. Check with Blue Line Sports shop or Woods & Waters, both in Saranac Lake.
Will the farmer’s markets be available? 
Yes, check the local farmer market website here
Can I rent a bicycle? 
Please contact Human Power Planet Earth bike shop.  Reservations are required.
Are area restaurants and shops open? 
Yes, many restaurants have re-opened and are also doing take-out in Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. Guests should not expect a normal dining experience but should instead enjoy the tranquility of our cabin and property. Most shops are operating at reduced capacity, though and require a face covering.
What should I pack? 
In addition to a face covering for each family member, check out these additional recommendations.
What is the cancellation policy?  
Your reservation can be cancelled at this time without penalty. If a no-show, there will be no refunds. We want you to feel comfortable to travel to us from your homes and we understand that could change from the time you book.
