Hi. I'm Diana, and I originally grew up skiing/hiking from my parents Adirondack vacation home in North Creek. Through the years my greater family (I am the eldest of 9), my sons and their many friends, and my friends have all enjoyed memorable vacations here at Buckskin Valley Lodge, as will you! Promise. It is a very special place.

DIANA B STEVENS purchased this lodge in 1995

Why DIANA B STEVENS chose Johnsburg

Buckskin Lodge is part of an association of 9 homes. We ask that you please respect our quiet hours of 10PM to 7AM. My property with lots of outdoor play space for all seasons. Our outdoor fire pit, picnic table, and Adirondack chairs are a perfect invitation for morning coffee and /or evening stargazing.

What makes this lodge unique

Enjoy the summertime quiet and settle into our swinging wicker loveseat and chairs on the screened-in porch with a book, cigar, or both. In the wintertime the 2 fireplaces in both the living room and dining/game room beckon. Cook for a crowd in our large well supplied kitchen. Relax and enjoy!

Buckskin Valley Lodge - family weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge was huge - lots of room for everyone. Loved the choices of furnishings.

The kitchen stove and in fact the kitchen itself was great!

We could not have picked a better place for our yearly family reunion!

Smelly, disgusting, spooky, not safe for children

  • 1 of 5

We stayed for two nights with six families. They told six bedrooms and six baths, but actually four bedrooms and four & half baths. Upstair had all bunker beds with no ventilation, no bath room, one broken fan and disgusting smell. Place has lots of old furnitures and uneven floors. Two kids got injured. One kid had to go emergency due to fractured feet from uneven floor from dining to family room, poor light and congested. There is nothing available near by. Price shopper is 50mins away. Lake George and fun places are one hour away. Internet wifi does not work, no phone signal; disconnected from rest of the world. Bad smell, bugs, poor light, no internet; made awful situation. Rain water was dripping in the hall way. Place looks like spooky house and scary. We had really really bad experience at this place.

Owner's Response: 6 families left a terrible mess. My Lodge is meticulous, obviously these guests are not Adirondack folks. To each his own.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. We had a family weekend with 18 - plenty of room. Pool/Ping Pong table in great room was great for the kids and the adults can hang out in the living room. It was nice that the four

bedrooms downstairs had their own bathroom/shower.
