Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Raquette River Lodge far exceeded our expectations for our family reunion. The lodge is a beautiful and peaceful oasis in our beloved Adirondacks. We couldn't be happier with our choice, and can't think of anything that would have made our stay better. We especially enjoyed the easy access to the water for kayaking and swimming, and the volleyball court was a huge hit! Thank you John and Donna for the complimentary wine!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our large group of 18 had a wonderful time here! We enjoyed using the boats, canoe, kayaks and paddle boards as well as all of the other amenities that came with the cabin. The lights on the volleyball court were a huge help as we decided to play volleyball after dark and the game room was an added bonus that you could slip away to to cool off and play some fun games. The hot tub had an amazing view of the river and the gorgeous night sky under the stars. This place had everything we needed and not once did we feel cramped with the amount of people we had. We decided that we will probably try and rent here every year as an annual get together. Thank you so much for such a wonderful place to stay!

Great for bachelor party

  • 5 of 5

We had anywhere between 15-20 guys and it was absolutely perfect! Different areas and things to do for large groups of people. They seriously had almost everything you can think of (and some stuff you probably won't think of until you get there). I was very impressed with the little details like the 3 flashlights and 3 pairs of binoculars they had set out. Both Donna and John were very responsive. We couldn't get the volleyball lights working but ended up not needing them anyway.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights with 16 of us total. The cabin slept all comfortably and the amenities of separate game building, boats, hot tub, vball court etc. gave plenty of entertainment, even for a cold rainy weekend. Donna was very responsive as well.

If looking for relatively remote ADK get away, I would highly recommend.

Perfect retreat for family or friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the lodge for four nights over New Years for a group of friends from New York and Montreal. It was exactly what we wanted and was spacious, comfortable and really worked for a large group. The surroundings are beautiful. Highly recommended!
