We are delighted to be able to share our 250-acre private forest retreat with those who need to rejuvenate in the serenity of nature.  There are multiple ways for you to be a guest at the McKinley Retreat, including our unique private forest bedroom vacation rentals.
  For large groups, the entire retreat can be reserved and our staff can customize precisely the backcountry group adventure setting you desire. Let the forest welcome you home.

Our remote, but accessible location in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York is the perfect place to let the solitude of the forest and its natural inhabitants rejuvenate you at your own pace.  The activities we have to share are primitive and low-key – including noteworthy guest restrictions to preserve both the solitude and the forest itself.   However, with our unique eco-friendly forest adventures, you can have your own private bedroom embedded directly into the forest -- in a way that leaves no permanent impact or mark on the land.

There is a small Adirondack Mountain town within a 5 kilometer drive that offers necessary gas, food and other provisions.

Please note, there are no commercial activities on our retreat.  All guest passes have to be confirmed on-line, no walk-ons are accepted and there are no consumer goods or services sold on-site. 

We have a variety of rental options ranging from renting the entire retreat (the ultimate in privacy!) to bringing some of your own gear &“roughing it” at our forest sites.

"Our newly constructed utility building is located near the parking area. This is your check-in location and is open daily for you to recharge your electronics or enjoy a free cup of coffee. Also located in this building are indoor flush toilets and shower facilities which are open 24 hours during your stay."

No two sites are in close visual range of each other. We have over 250 acres and seclusion is about not seeing your neighbors - although you may see other hikers passing through. Retreat staff will only visit your site with replenishing supplies – and only if you do not have your ‘Do Not Disturb” signal displayed!
