Why John Durand chose Thousand Islands

Beaver Creek Lodge was created in the late 1980's by Robert Whipple, a consummate farmer and outdoorsman from Knox, NY who loved the beauty of the Tug Hill region. Bob envisioned a place where one could come and enjoy the bounty of nature's offering, while staying in a place with all the comforts of home. Whether you come for hiking, hunting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, skiing, fishing, communing with nature or just plain escaping the normal grind, Beaver Creek Lodge offers the perfect home base. Today, that vision is continued by Bob's children, who invite you to come experience Tug Hill and Beaver Creek Lodge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was everything we saw on line and more! ALL the “extras” around the house – fans, Kleenex, spices etc. were so nice – made us feel right at home and instantly welcome! Well maintained – Karen only a phone call away – Great time. …….”Karen the housekeeper” – the biggest worry in booking any accommodations is always cleanliness. This was amazing! Clean, clean, clean!! Thank you so much for doing such a super job!!

Awesome place, fantastic views, away from it all the way life should be

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 11 friends and family. Plenty of room in the house for more. Very clean and taken care of. The property is unreal. Acres of hay fields with trails through the woods, ponds, beaver huts, deer, ducks, geese. Everything an outdoorsman loves . Definitely will be visiting again in the future.

It was buzzing with excitment!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for a well over due family reunion. Our party included 12 adults and 2 children. The house was perfect! It was clean and spacious well exceeded our expectations. The outside grounds was spacious enough for playing soccer and having Bon fires at night. The only down side was the house flies, the property was buzzing with many, many house flies. I can definitely see why this location would be perfect in the winter for those winter enthusiasts!

Family Snowmobile Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As always, our stay was very enjoyable. Thanks for allowing us to arrive early on Saturday morning so that we could enjoy time getting our supplies and preparing our sleds to get out on the trails earlier. The house was warm and inviting. We love using the fireplace when we are at the house during the morning and evening hours. Our cooks use the house most of the day for relaxing and enjoying their time away from their jobs. The snow was excellent this year and we were able to get more time out on the trails. It is wonderful to be right along the trail and be able to just go out in the morning, get on the sleds and get right on the trails. As long as we are able, we will be coming back to enjoy the house and the trails.

The listing description was accurate. The property was clean and will maintained. The property manager made sure the driveways were cleared after each snowfall. The owner provided excellent customer service when he answered all our emails in a timely manner.

We would highly recommend this location to our friends and relatives.

We went snowmobiling just about every day. We go to the local grocery store in Lowville for all our supplies. We enjoyed all the local restaurants we stop at along the trails.

The Tug Hill region is directly west of the Adirondacks and just south of the 1000 islands, located roughly in the triangle formed by Watertown, Rome, and Syracuse. It encompasses approximately 2000 square miles. The most outstanding characteristic of the Tug Hill region is its undeveloped state. There are some small, scattered hamlets and villages along the outer edges of the region, but the core area is heavily forested and relatively unpopulated.

The area, because of its landform and location east of Lake Ontario, has the perfect conditions for lake effect snowstorms. These storms are responsible for the majority of the 200-300 inches of snow which fall each year, turning the region into a winter wonderland. The heavy snowfall is one of Tug Hill’s greatest recreational assets.

Tug Hill has an extensive snowmobile trail network criss-crossing the region. A rapidly growing ATV trail network compliments the snowmobile trails, providing year round riding opportunities.

Other Activities: Snowmobiling, ATVing
