Wonderful place to hold a family reunion!
This property is fantastic, so beautiful, the perfect location for a family reunion! It's a classic Adirondack Lodge that is beautifully decorated and extremely functional.
TEN visits and still going back!!
Beautifully maintained and furnished lodge in a quiet scenic spot next to a pond. Perfect for large groups . Most bedrooms have their own private bath. Awesome cooking kitchen, patio with gas fire pit overlooking a scenic pond, beach area for kids...trails to walk. Just so comfortable, clean and tranquil. Our favorite spot to visit with friends and their kids! The “kids” are now young adults and this lodge remains their favorite weekend of the year! HIGHLY recommend Otter Creek Lodge.
Thank you Andrea! You have a great group of friends and family. We are glad you enjoy our lodge and we welcome you back next year and many more!
We had a fabulous time at Otter Creek!
The lodge and grounds are beautiful. The accommodations excellent, everything you could need or want is right there. The owner was great to work with and the caretaker was informative and responsive. The private beach was amazing. It was a perfect weekend. We can't wait until next year!
Great setting, well equipped, and cared for
We’ve used Otter Creek Lodge for several years for large 14-22 person getaways. The place is fantastic - the setting is beautiful and private, well kept and supplied. We really have no complaints. All have enjoyed our stay each year and look forward to coming back. Jim Somers, the owner and Mike, Otter Creek’s caretaker, are a pleasure to deal with. Otter Creek is the best rental facility I’ve ever used for family and business getaways.
The Perfect Place for a Family Reunion!
Beginning in 2001, we have gathered our family together at Otter Creek Lodge for an annual reunion for 18 consecutive years! None of our 7 grandchildren is old enough to remember a time that they did not come to the Lodge for a week of summer fun with the whole family. We have had as many as 24 people stay for all or part of the week.
The listing description of the Lodge and its facilities is accurate. The property is always thoroughly cleaned and prepared immediately before our arrival; each year it feels like we are returning home. Not only is the property well-maintained, but over the years the owner has invested a considerable amount in improvements to the Lodge itself and the grounds around it.
We have the Lodge completely to ourselves during our week, but there is a caretaker within easy reach by cell phone who can handle any questions or needs that may arise. This service has been very reliable over the years.
Although the family spends most of the week at the Lodge and at its beach on Hinchings Pond, there are other off-site activities that we enjoy as well. These include golf at the Brantingham Golf Club, swimming and water sliding at a nearby water flume and hiking on many of the nearby trails. Regarding restaurants, the commercial kitchen at the Lodge is so well equipped that we have never felt the need to go out for dinner.
We would absolutely recommend Otter Creek Lodge to friends, relatives or anyone who wants to enjoy a perfect family or group getaway.
Thanks for the great review Steve! We are very glad that your family has continued to choose Otter Creek Lodge all these years. There is nothing more rewarding to us as owners of Otter Creek to know that you want to return to the Lodge each year! We look forward to seeing you next year!
18 Years of the Best Vacation - Ever!
Otter Creek lodge has been a tradition in our family for 18 years. For my family (7 people), and my brother’s and sister’s families (19 people), it has been an amazing place to relax, rejuvenate and celebrate.
The natural beauty of this location is amazing and many years we never even left the house/grounds and just enjoyed the property. Now, we often explore the area (locally) and enjoy; hiking, swimming at the water falls, golfing, horseback riding, whitewater rafting…to mention a few.
The accommodations are great and property has something for everyone. The ownership has also continued to invest in the property and make upgrades year-over-year.
The best complement I can give Otter Creek is the fact that our (now) teenage children look forward to going today, just as much as they did when we first arrived in 2000.
Mark, thank you for the great review! We know you have choices when it comes to deciding where you will have your family reunion each year and we are grateful that you continue to return to Otter Creek. We hope your teenage children will continue the tradition too!
Otter Creek Lodge is located in the western foothills of the Adirondack Park in Glenfield NY.
The lodge is situated on over 100 acres and surrounded mostly by State land. Our private 18 acre lake is a beautiful body of water. Glacial formed with clear blue water and sandy bottom. The large beach has a gradual slope into the water, which makes swimming possible for all ages and skills.
The lodge is located on the Otter Creek Horse Trail system of more than 65 miles of trails. Perfect for hiking, biking, and cross country skiing. There are several lakes on the trail system nearby that are stocked with trout. State snowmobile trails are located adjacent to the property and are accessible directly from the lodge.
We are about 1.5 hours from Syracuse, 3 hours from Rochester and 5 hours from NYC.
The lodge is very private and secluded and is available for private functions offering weekend and weekly rates. Great for clubs, groups, family reunions and small corporate retreats.
Other Activities: snowmobiling, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting.
Golf: There are several good Golf Courses in the area. Old Forge is about 1 hour and there are several excellent Golf courses there.
Skiing and Snowmobiling: Otter Creek Lodge gets about 200-300 inches of snow per year making it an excellent destination for cross country skiing and snowmobiling. We are located on the Otter Creek Horse Trail System that is renowned as the best in the northeast. There are over 65 miles of trails for biking, hiking, horseback riding etc. We are also located on the NY state snowmobile trail 8A. Snowmobile and ski right from the front door.
For down hill skiing, Snow Ridge is located about 25 minutes away and is a great family ski hill with lots of snow.
