Are you an owner of a quality hotel, motel, inn, bed and breakfast, ski resort, private campground ​or other place of lodging?

 

Would you like to increase occupancy and revenue?

Do you own land which you might be willing to donate, sell or develop?

 

As we develop our hamlet-to-hut routes, we’ll be looking for existing places of lodging to become part of our Lodging Affiliate Network.

Our goal is to incorporate existing lodging into our lodging affiliate network to the greatest degree possible as we ultimately develop a circuitry of accommodations that meets the needs of our hamlets-to-huts trekkers. We imagine that this network of lodgings will range from the simple to the elegant and include rustic, but high-quality platform tents and yurts, cabins, motels, bed and breakfast accommodations, ecolodges and five-star hotels. To attract and accommodate a wide range of potential guests, we plan to have facilities that range from “economy” (boutique hostel-type lodging) to amenity-rich, upscale lodging. We anticipate that some lodgings will be self-service, in which visitors bring their own food and prepare their own meals, while others will be full service and provide meals. No matter the type of lodging, it is important to us that we maintain a high level of quality for each accommodation. 

Adirondack Hamlets to Huts is in the process of creating this lodging affiliate network and, in partnership with the affiliates, will strive to meet agreed-upon criteria established to ensure high-quality accommodations and services. The purposes of such an affiliate network will be to:

    1. Provide AHH trekkers access to accommodations along routes in the growing  hamlets-to-huts network.
    2. Provide a consistent quality of service to AHH guests, ensuring a positive guest experience and guest satisfaction.
    3. Provide lodging owners with increased occupancy, as well as additional marketing, exposure, and, ultimately, more business and revenue.
    4. Diversify the range of lodging available to hamlets-to-huts trekkers.

We look forward to working with lodging owners in developing lodging affiliation criteria. They may include but not be limited to:

  • Access to and from trails and/or shuttle services

  • Cooking facilities and/or restaurant access

  • Equipment storage

  • Signage

  • Laundry facilities

  • Guest services 

  • Reception-check in/out

    • Drying room for wet equipment
    • Exterior lighting
    • Customer service
    • Bathroom/shower facilities
    • Clean accommodations
    • Different types of room arrangements
    • Cell phone/Internet access
    • Number of available beds​

Our Vision - Trips for Everyone


Weekend trips. Week-long trips. Some all hiking. Some all paddling. Some in which you can do both-- paddle and hike, even paddle and bike. No matter how long your selected route or your mode of travel, there are no tents to carry, camp stoves to struggle with, or mosquitoes biting you in your sleep on an Adirondack Hamlets to Huts trek.

You will travel to and through charming and historic Adirondack communities as well as amazing wild landscapes that make the Adirondacks the special place that it is. Our routes celebrate both the settled and the sublime, the culture of the Adirondacks as much as its nature. Your lodging will run the gamut, from the simple, such as walled tents, yurts, cabins, and motels, to the grand, including bed-and-breakfasts, hotels, lodges, and inns.

Come to the Adirondacks and experience the Park with Adirondack Hamlets to Huts. Adventure by day. Comfort at night.
