Stillwater Reservoir is located in the West Central Adirondacks; we are 26 miles north and east of Lowville or 28 miles north and west of Old Forge. Driving to Northern Lights, you will enjoy a scenic drive through the Park, the last 10 miles being an unpaved road. You will find ample parking at the B&B for trucks with either snowmobile or boat trailers. The public Boat launch at the Stillwater Reservoir is free! Please talk with us should you wish to keep your boat at the Stillwater Shop dock during your stay.
This property was purchased by Frank and Jackie Rudolph in 1998 and re-constructed in the tradition of the Adirondack Camp as a Bed and Breakfast over several years. The B&B is family occupied by our family of four plus our dog Ruby, two barn cats, Maggie Mae and BellaDonna (outside only) and our horse barn which currently hosts 5 horses which are Jackie's passion and Frank's indulgence! Our hen house is full and Fresh eggs are served daily.!
Renovations have been a labor of love which has transformed the home from its' original design. The project continues to evolve as with all homes - you're never quite done! Canopies, decks, perennial gardens and interior wood work will continue to evolve as long as we're here.
Nestled in the woods 1/4 mile from the reservoir, you will see lots of birds, especially hummingbirds in the summer. Keep watch for bald eagles and you will hear the loons as you drift off to sleep on summer nights. A short walk or moment in the car will bring you to the boat launch area where we have canoes and kayaks available from the Stillwater Shop for your use at no charge to B&B guests.. During your stay you may also encounter lots of other wild life - you may see a heron, turkeys, coyote, bear, deer, or maybe even a moose! We've even seen moose, otters and bobcats on the way to the school bus (not at the same time of course!).
We also own and operate The Stillwater Shop, the general store at the Stillwater Reservoir. As a small family run business, there are times when we may be at the Shop and not at the B&B and vice versa.. Please communicate with us what you may need and when you need it. In season between the businesses we are quite busy and at times may be temporarily unavailable for immediate assistance to you but are happy to do our best to accommodate your needs or requests when known to us. This is especially important for check in time so we can be available to greet you at either the house or The Stillwater Shop.
This area is beautiful year round. Spring is late in coming and often brief. Summertime offers opportunities for mountain biking, fishing, canoing, kayaking, boating, hiking, picnicking, swimming, bird watching, or just relaxing with that book you've been trying to read! Fall brings cool nights and warm days and winter opens the door for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. Our remote location will allow you to enjoy star gazing without interference from light pollution common in metropolitan areas. A clear night will offer a phenomenal star display. And yes we have seen the Northern Lights on several occasions
