Relax in the Adirondacks
…six million acres to explore.
The Northwood Cabins is centrally located in the Adirondacks in Tupper Lake, NY. We’re also just a short drive from Saranac Lake and Lake Placid!
You’ll find Tupper Lake tucked into the mountains on the shores of Raquette Lake (fun fact, none of the ‘tri-lakes’ towns are actually on the lakes they’re named after). Historically a logging town, today the town is the perfect place to relax and discover everything this unique corner of the Adirondacks has to offer! Ideal for a family getaway, Tupper offers a variety of friendly and accessible hikes. Tupper Lake is also home to the Wild Center, the official Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks. This world class museum is a MUST see when you come to town, and don’t miss their Wild Walk! Tupper Lake is also home to the Adirondack Sky Center. You’ll also find a welcoming downtown area with some great dining and shopping options, and for the beer lover don’t miss Tupper’s has it’s own craft brewery, Raquette River Brewing.
Just a 20 minute drive from the Northwood Cabins, Saranac Lake is a great hub for exploring the Adirondacks’ St. Regis Canoe Area by boat. Saranac Lake also has a great downtown shopping district, vibrant art community and is host to a variety of popular events throughout the year. Saranac Lake is also the home of the world renowned Trudeau Institute and the Saranac Labratory Museum.
A 30 minute drive from our cabins, Lake Placid is the perfect place to find tons of fantastic shopping and dining, gear up to ski at Whiteface, or plan a trip into the High Peaks. Host of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, you can also visit the Olympic Venues which are open to the public and regularly host world-class sporting events. Consider a visit to John Brown’s Farm where you can learn about the Adirondacks role in the lead up to the Civil War.
