    The Cabin, One of 6 Backcountry Camps with Authentic Adirondack Furnishings at Fourpeaks in Jay NY. We Love It Here in Jay N.Y., the Heart of the Adirondacks! A Love Story.
    We're in love. It all started in 1968 with just "The Cabin" and 90 acres for weekend getaways from work in New York City. Today, 40 years, six more camps and 600 acres later, we're renting our places for others to enjoy--our retirement business-- offering outdoor vacations in authentic Adirondack settings. We're in love (with where we live) and we want others to experience High Peaks open space and scenic beauty (as much as possible)--even if you can't stay with us this time!   [MORE ABOUT The Fourpeaks story.  How we found "The Cabin."]

Want to get away from the crowds and tourist junk in Lake Placid? If we can't find something for you here at Fourpeaks, we hope you'll stay someplace else nearby. You can still enjoy our AuSable River valley open space and scenic beauty. Here on the East Branch of the AuSable in the scenic hamlets of Jay and Upper Jay, just on the other side of the mountain, things are much quieter and more relaxed than in Lake Placid and the busy tourist developments immediately around the Olympic complex.
