IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR 2020 SEASON

We plan to open for the 2020 season on July 1, 2020. We will be making  adjustments to address the present situation. We have posted these on our Face Book page  Northwood Cabins (See link to the right). We will continue to provide updated information  there as it becomes available. #WeWillBeHereADK

Sit back, relax, and discover the Adirondacks with us at Northwood Cabins. Located one mile east of Tupper Lake on Route 30 we are  your gateway to the Western High Peaks.  Enjoy the fresh Adirondack breezes from your own front porch or a peaceful early morning paddle from one of the many boat launches located near us.

Our Adirondack cabins provide a nostalgic experience with all the modern amenities.  The  cabins sleep 2-4 people, have their own private bathroom and all linens are provided.  Also all of our cabins  are equipped with AC/heat, refrigerators,  flat screen TV’s with cable  and have wifi access. Two cabins offer full kitchens and a separate bedroom.

" ...that give us all kind of thrills
But the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll gitcha when you get your picture
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone."
Dr.Hook

We were aware that we would appear in a photo essay in the July issue of Adirondack Life Magazine called "Cottage Country" by photographer Yvonne Albinowski. In fact we had been getting messages from subscription holders who had already seen it as they received their copy before it hit the stores. We were quite excited when it was finally released this week. Trouble was the only place in Tupper Lake that we knew sold it was The Wild Center's gift shop which is still closed. So off we went in search of the elusive prize. Stewarts: great ice cream, but nope. Next the Adirondack Store, no luck, but nice Adirondack decor. Spruce and Hemlock, love your sweatshirts, no magazine but a tip, Hoss' in Long Lake.
On the way out of town we stopped at Raquette River Outfitters, a great collection of canoes and kayaks, but alas, no magazine to be found.

So on to Long Lake'. Hoss' did not disappoint, there it was on the shelf--the object of our desire. I scooped up two copies so there would be no fighting in the truck and headed to the cash register. Here as I paid I went into great detail as to the reason for my purchase today, a story that was well rehearsed as I had told it at every stop along the way. As I left I continued to look for our picture with no success, only when I reached the truck did I discover I had purchased two copies of the April issue. Thankfully Hoss' has a generous return policy with a receipt and within 60 seconds of your purchase.

We chose to stop at The Adirondack Hotel and enjoy both the magazine as well as the view along with a pint of Raquette River beer.

The article is mostly photographs, with a brief write up about each property. We are the first of five "Cabin Colonies" located throughout the park that is profiled. Tupper Lake is well represented as the old Shore Acres Court now known as Skyline Ice Cream is included as well.

For us they included a number of pictures of the sign as well as Cabin 1. It's amazing what a good photographer can do. Ms. Albinowski made the kitchen look so nice. It made us wonder why we did the renovation. Oh that's right the floor was on the verge of collapsing.

So while it might not be the cover page 52 will do nicely, and Mom I'm sorry unlike Dr. Hook I can't afford to buy five more copies for you.

"Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smilin' face
On ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶c̶o̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶R̶o̶l̶l̶i̶n̶'̶ ̶S̶t̶o̶n̶e̶ page 52 of Adirondack Life."

There we fixed it.

Northwood Cabins

Cabin 1 is finally, completely, absolutely, totally done.

This is where we started our renovations nearly four years ago. The first guest who stayed in the cabin that year came in the first morning to report that when it rained the ceiling dripped on the person sleeping on the sofa bed. So began our journey starting with a new roof.

Since then we have replaced most of the floor structure along with parts of the foundation. On top of this we laid new hardwood flooring, except the bedroom. The bedroom is the last piece of this puzzle, and like a puzzle the true image is only revealed once the final piece is in place.

The bedroom for those who have not stayed in the cabin was small, dominated by a full-size bed and large dresser. Add to this the dark paneling and inadequate lighting caused the room to have a closed in, tight feeling. To address this we removed the closet opening up much needed wall space. We removed or repainted all of the paneling leaving the walls a clean light yellow and white. The dark trim was replaced as well. And the floor: the carpet was torn up, the floor scraped and painted "Meadow Green." This was a special paint made just for us (we mixed all the left over paint we had in the cellar).

All of these improvements along with new queen-size bed, custom made headboard and new lighting gives the room a light open feel.
