Welcome to Northern Lights Bed and Breakfast. Northern Lights is located at the Stillwater Reservoir in a remote area of the West Central Adirondacks. Stillwater Reservoir is 28 miles from the village of Old Forge or 28 miles from Lowville. This area of the park offers recreation and relaxation year round for the outdoor enthusiast. Constructed in the tradition of the great camps of the Adirondacks, our home is nestled in the woods on our 33 acre parcel of private land and is surrounded by the Independence Wild Forest. With only three rooms, privacy abounds at Northern Lights. Our goal is to allow you to experience the Adirondack Wilderness with the ultimate of comforts. Upon entering, you will be greeted by our great room with stone fireplace. The great room serves as a gathering place for guests to read, play games, try a puzzle or watch movies. All three guestrooms are individually decorated in the "North Country" style and have Vermont Castings Gas Stove Fireplaces. Two have spa tubs. Eastern white pine and cedar are used on the walls and ceilings, custom cherry and elm trim are used throughout the rooms. Entertainment carts for viewing DVDs and VHS movies are available by request and guests may enjoy our extensive library of movies. Massage therapy is available by appointment; massage is one hour and is performed in the privacy of your room. A hearty Adirondack Mountain Breakfast is prepared before you in our "theatre" kitchen and the adjoining dining room doesn't have a bad seat in the house. Traditional favorites and some surprises are served daily; including the entree of the day, fresh home baked goods, fresh fruit and cereal. Accomodations are non-smoking, no pets.

Outstanding Innkeepers

5 on July 16, 2010

This Inn may be out of the way, but its outstanding. Rooms are large, clean, fresh and well appointed. The room price includes use of a canoe or kayak on the quiet, unspoiled reservoir. The breakfast in the beautiful show kitchen upstairs by "Chef Frank" was the best. Jackie and Frank are the Tops in Innkeepers. A terirfic value for the price.

happy and relaxed

Jackie and Frank are wonderful hosts. This B&B is warm and welcoming. We enjoyed kayaking and having easy access to hiking trails. The breakfasts were outstanding!

Adirondack Getaway

4.0 on July 21, 2008

A truly fantastic location for relaxation and time in the great outdoors! We started each day with a tasty, hearty mountain breakfasts and assorted homemade muffins & breads followed by kayaking on the reservoir taking in the many sights and sounds of nature. Local eateries for dinner offered a wide variety of menu items to meet any appetite and budget. We relaxed at night in the private, in-room whirlpool bath. A great place to visit...again and again.

Great Place to Stay

If your looking for a quiet out of the way B&B away from the hustle of crowds, this is the place to visit. The rooms are spacious as is the bathroom. Frank's breakfasts will keep you satisfied throughout the day. Jackie and Frank are very accomodating and gracious hosts. We'd surely stay there again.

Outstanding Weekend Getaway!!!!

5 on January 15, 2007

We didn't know what to expect, as we'd never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. We had the most wonderful and relaxing weekend! Frank & Jackie are most gracious hosts and make you feel incredibly comfortable and welcome. The rooms are all so clean and cozy. The morning breakfasts are beyond expectations. Definetly worth the trip. We can't wait to go back!
