A vacation away from it all (with your dog)!
Your Fourpeaks Adirondack Pet Friendly Cabin is totally secluded. (No folks nearby.) Big two-acre plus doggy play-yard right at your rental. 20 miles of woodsy trails. Pretty brook to splash around in. Scenic river nearby. Out-of-this-world pet friendly.
"The trails here at Fourpeaks are neat for dogs. There's Stonehouse Road for beginners. The trail to The Lookout for something with a view. Gung-Ho outdoor types like Setters and Labs relish the longer walks. The best place for High Peaks views is Rattlesnake Knob. Just follow the Jeep Road to Fisher Ridge Trail and up to the notch at Rattlesnake. It's easy (well, moderate) and fun!" [CLICK HERE for all about our 20 miles of walking trails and 108 (count 'em) beauty spots.]
"Then there's the AuSable River just a short walk to the bottom of Stonehouse Road. Ideal for us fourlegged creatures. It's shallow with lots of shoals and islands for running around in. You don't have to be a swimmer to enjoy this fresh water fun. Say Go fetch! and I jump right in. But watch out when I come out and shake dry." (CLICK HERE for what the NY Times says about dog and human swimming in the scenic AuSable River.
"And don't miss the quiet Brook Trail that runs downhill behind Gypsy Camp to where the brook meets the old road by Thoreau House. On a warm day there's nothing better than cooling your puppies in the fresh cascading waters there." (CLICK HERE for trail notes to Brook Trail. And CLICK HERE for a swimming map to Brook Trail and the best swimming spots on the nearby AuSable R.)
"Aside from trails and swimming and all that I just love to sniff out the exciting wilderness stuff all around and run real fast in the open fields with nobody around and no cars and scary stuff like that. When I'm wore out I just take a nap by the fire. I hope you come and let me show you around."

Dear Martin and George,
We all enjoyed our weekend at Ridge Camp! (Oct.10-13) What a beautiful
weekend! Couldn't ask for better weather. It was such a great experience.
Some day we would like to return. Here are a few pictures that somewhat
captured the beauty that weekend.

HI! I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful time we had at New Camp. It
was so wonderful to be away from Society and to be allowed to run all about your
mountains without a leash. I enjoyed the biscuits that we baked and the cold
I cant wait to see you again. Toby B***** (the dog)

Email : KPfirstname.lastname@example.org
Location : New City, NY
Comments : We had a terrific time during our stay at Gypsy
Camp -- the sun porch was an awesome place to relax and watch the stars come
out. The hiking was fabulous, and the views (we especially loved
Rattlesnake Knob and Ridge View)were spectacular. Max was smiling for the
entire time! He loved being off his leash for five days. After some hectic
months, the peaceful quiet and serene tranquility of Fourpeaks were just
what the doctor ordered!
