Great Pines offers you conveniently-located direct access to the Adirondacks’ vast network of snowmobile, hiking, and mountain biking trails—not to mention the stunning Fourth Lake and the quintessential upstate New York mountain town of Old Forge. Whether you’re here for outdoor adventure, rustic relaxation, or a bit of both, we’ll help you curate the perfect vacation when you book at Great Pines by Weekender.
Summer & Fall
Summer is our favorite time of year at Great Pines: The lakes are warm enough to swim in, the forest is abundant with wildlife, and the cool evenings around the bonfire can’t be beat! From sultry days in the quaint town of Old Forge to the biking, hiking, boating, swimming, and fishing adventures waiting for you in the natural splendor of the Adirondacks, Great Pines is the perfect place to experience the classic, all-American summer.
Then, in the Fall, enjoy local festivals and tasty cook-offs in nearby towns along with the vibrant colors of changing leaves reflecting off of Fourth Lake. With over 18 miles of panoramic views, Great Pines offers magical leaf-viewing without even having to leave the porch! Rates are lower this time of year, too, due to some of our amenities and restaurants closing for the season.
Winter & Spring
Old Forge, New York is one of the top three snowmobiling destinations in the country and becomes a winter wonderland during the colder months. You can enjoy world-class snowmobiling via access to the popular Trail 5 and perfectly groomed cross-country or downhill skiing on the nearby McCauley Mountain. Top your day off with a visit to the gift shop, indoor ice skating, or a meal and drinks at a local brewery.
In Spring, you can get ahead of the summer crowds (and the summer bugs) to enjoy the solitude of the forest along thousands of miles of hiking and biking trails. Fishing and boating are also favorite activities this time of year, and with some of our amenities and restaurants closed during April and May, you’ll enjoy lower rates too.
