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.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that your bachelor party was a success at the Raquette Lodge. Thank you for being so appreciative! Donna and John

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 weekend

We had a fantastic weekend at the Lodge! Snowshoeing on the hiking trails nearby, playing snow volleyball, enjoying the hot tub. Everything we could want!

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!
