"An Oasis in the Wilderness"


Stillwater Reservoir offers some of the finest Small-Mouth Bass fishing in the East! Brook Trout can be found in the many streams that flow into the reservoir and Lake Trout in the deeper lakes around Beaver River.


Swimming, kayaking and canoeing are permitted on the entire 128 miles of shoreline that border the Stillwater Reservoir. Kayaks, canoes and rowboats are free of charge when renting one of our cabins on Norridgewock Lake. We also have a small motorboat that is available for rent on a daily basis.

Beaver River has many miles of dirt roads that are perfect for biking. You may bring your bike on the "Wilderness Cruise" and explore Beaver River this way.

Beaver River is also a starting point for hiking into the Five Ponds and the Pepperbox Wilderness areas. The wilderness classification strictly prohibits the use of any motorized vehicles and thus offers a unique opportunity for a true wilderness experience.

"Hike 'N Cruise" - Hike in from Twitchell Lake (7 miles) to Beaver River and enjoy lunch at our lodge, then take the Wilderness Cruise back to Stillwater. A car can be left in Stillwater or arrange for a pick up back to Twitchell Lake trailhead.

"Cruise 'N Snooze" - Special package includes narrated cruise, lunch on arrival, dinner, overnight stay and hearty breakfast. Choice of departure times the next day are 11:00 am or 3:30 pm.

169.00 (plus tax) - double occupancy

Fall in Beaver River is a spectacular display of color and incredible scenery. Peak color in most of the central Adirondacks occurs during the last week or two in September. However you will still find the color to be quite nice in the weeks before and after peak color. The Wilderness Cruise runs Saturdays and Sundays through Columbus Day weekend.

The hamlet of Beaver River is completely surrounded by "forever wild" state land. Therefore creating the perfect place to stay and hunt. Imagine heading out at the crack of dawn, hunting all day and coming back to your cabin to enjoy a drink at cocktail hour and dinner by the fire in our dining room. Of course you can always prepare your own meals in your fully equipped kitchen in your cabin.

Hunting Season dates for 2011:
