Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, the 60-acre estate borders more than half a mile of private riverfront near the Tug Hill Plateau, where abundant snowfall makes for excellent cross-country and downhill skiing.
Conservationist Christophe Marin founded the lodge as a place of tranquility and restoration. You’ll find quiet spots to meditate throughout the resort.
The red clapboard cabins have charming, rustic touches. An original Craftsman-style fireplace crackles in Thoreau's cabin, and Leopold’s cabin features natural, rough-cut pine harvested from the property.
After a day of outdoor activities, enjoy a s’mores kit of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows (included with this Groupon) in front of a cozy fire.
Taberg, New York: Hiking, Skiing, and Country Scenery in the Adirondack Foothills
The small town of Taberg lies in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, less than 50 miles from Syracuse. Thanks to the abundance of natural beauty nearby, Taberg is a popular destination for city dwellers looking to rough it for a while. The area has the distinction of holding the record for most snowfall east of the Rocky Mountains, making the Tug Hill Plateau a popular spot for winter sports, including cross-country and downhill skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. A less strenuous way to enjoy the scenery is to hop aboard the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, which stops at a station in nearby Utica. You can see forests, frozen ponds, and snow-covered peaks—all from the comfort of a powerful locomotive.

What You Get
Stay for two in Leopold’s or Thoreau’s cabin, or up to four in an Adirondack cabin
Wellnesste Lodge was a wonderful pick for our weekend getaway. It was quiet, peaceful & relaxing. The owners were gracious and extremely hospitable. The trails to the river, pond or woods were well maintained. The free range chickens were pleasant to watch in the morning drinking our coffee and the eggs even better to eat. Easy access to one of the many fire pits. It was a getaway we will revisit!!
