IT'S ' THE GOOD OLD SUMMER TIME ' AT BEAUTIFUL 'BEAR TOOTH LODGE'

Old Forge Lodge Rental Photos and Description

3 Bed + 2 LR Pull-out/1.5 Bath/ Game RM/ HUGE FIREPLACE/ KAYAKS & CANOE /FIREPIT

SUMMER HOLIDAYS are the BEST at 'BEAR TOOTH LODGE' and the surrounding ADK towns & villages. We deck the HISTORIC HALLS of 'BEAR TOOTH LODGE' with traditional ADK SUMMER HOLIDAY BLISS. ALSO- Ample parking for boat & ATV trailers. In Town GAS STATION, Old Family Restaurant, a TAVERN w/ Piano BAR, Grocery & Video Rentals, ATM & Lottery, w/ Friday Night FISH FRY. Within 2 minutes from the Lodge, you can SWIM, CANOE, KAYAK, FISH, HIKE, RAFT, TUBE, etc. Close by is Water Safari/ Enchanted Forest/ golfing/ hiking/ all boat and water sports/ fishing//white water rafting/ tubing/ loads of ADK inspired shops/ climbing/ antiquing/ museums/ art center/ lake cruises/ seaplanes/alpine skiing/ X country skiing/ arcades mini golf/ movie theaters, etc. etc.. This is the gateway to the grand Fulton Chain of lakes and THE HIGH PEAKS.

Snowmobile, ski and hiking trails leave the property in all directions. There are no sanctioned ATV trails, however everyone has them in this neck of the woods. State trail to Brewer lake begins on the property. We back pack in about 2 miles. You should listen to the loons and star gaze at the brilliant night skies. Maybe you will see a UFO! Believe!

Private boat launch . We have a great CANOE and 2 Kayaks ready to GO, not to mention TUBES to float down the MOOSE RIVER, or just float in the sun on beautiful Private OTTER LAKE. Back in the day, BEAR TOOTH LODGE was the OTTER LAKE RAILROAD DEPOT, Ice House & General Store.

Now, we enjoy the vintage ADK EXPRESS EXCURSION TRAIN. In the place of the RR Depot, we have a great FIRE PIT, and DON'T be afraid of making too much NOISE............BEAR TOOTH LODGE is a

Year round home in the Great Camp tradition. The house and grounds takes you back in time, when people came by train from all over the country to Summer or Winter in the crisp, clean Adirondack Mtns. Some came to escape from the hot cities,others came from mid-west farms during the growing season to return for the harvest,, and many came to become healthy again , as diseases were fatal back in those days. Now--- we just have FUN - FUN - FUN!

, All you have to do is have FUN, and enjoy the MAGNIFICENT ADK Wilderness Experience at it's best. ADD to our guest photo album, or write few lines, or perhaps add a chapter to our 'Bear Tooth Lodge' GHOST/MURDER/MYSTERY Progressive Novel. People ask us if we have Ghosts. ? Our reply is MAYBE! We call them 'Charlie' and 'Lizzy, or Izzy'. Within a 10 mi. radius there are more things to do than you can imagine. There is fun stuff in every direction.. NYS Snowmobile Trail on property. We often X-Country Ski/Hike/SnowShoe to Brewer Lake- NYS Trail starts on the property. 2.5 mi hike or small vehicle trail to a' read about ' WILDERNESS Lake.

Full linen service available per your request. Game room in the basement (ping pong, air hockey and darts, small pool table & Doll House). Great Fishing. Private boat launch and swimming area. Canoe provided along with 2 kayaks and other recreational water toys. Moose River ½ mile N. Park a car downstream and ride the river in our tubes. NYS Trail Head on property. Snowmobile Trail Literally in Back Yard. Nestled Between Old Forge and Tug Hill/ High Market Trail Systems. Best of Both Worlds. Skiers- Macly Mt. 10Mi. N, Snow Ridge 15 Mi. NW. and Woods Valley 20Mi. SW. Mountain Biking/X-Country/ Snow Shoe/Hiking NYS Trail head in back Yard plus several Trail heads in 10Mi. radius. The house and grounds take you back in time. Our wall of history is about Otter Lake's Grand Hotel, which was directly across the street, and the roll our house played during the heyday from 1890 - 1960. We also have loads of games, books, videos, and I forgot to mention a HORSESHOE PIT.

My son Todd & I moved back to our beloved Mohawk Valley and the Adirondacks after 25 years from CT/RI. We are drawn to properties that are historic and must be preserved, as they will be lost forever. Circa 1910 Bear Tooth Lodge (BTL) was the Otter Lake Station for the ADK RR/General Store/Post O/Ice House, etc.The OL RR Depot served the white 3 story circa late 1800's Otter Lake Hotel with wrap around porches. Imagine Summering at this grande old Hotel! We are also restoring a magnificent circa 1869 3 story brick Tudor Mansion in the Historic District on Genesee ST. in Utica,NY.Very soon we plan to host High Tea Events at the Tudor Mansion especially High Tea B-day Parties for young girls. Very Special!

Todd Moore or Patrica Colite purchased this lodge in 2008

Why stay in a stuffy motel, when you can enjoy all the comforts of home while at a beautiful Historic Adirondack Lodge equipted with everything. This Spring, we have designed a new huge gormet Kitchen and Sitting Room.

Bear Tooth Lodge is like going back in time when life was mello, and laughter was a welcome and common happening. Loads of things to do and see.
