    Fourpeaks Rental Terms
    "Very unhappy with the degree of hospitality we received." The great majority of guests are thrilled to be here and don't mind if I'm an oddball. Do they think a normal person would live here year round--with just mountains, trees and nature?
    Safety Hazards at our Backcountry Camps.
    Safety First!
    "The process of making the reservation was problematic." Folks are used to booking accommodations in just a minute with a credit card on the phone. We're sorry about that. If we were renting roadside cabins (or motel rooms, etc.), we'd do the same.
    Value for your dollar. What do YOU value in a getaway vacation? "Your prices are upscale. Why is that?" Some folks experience the wilderness with just a sleeping bag and a tent--costs nothing. Others travel to exotic places--big bucks. Our backcountry camps cost in-between. About the same as a good hotel room in a mid-size town.
    Visit Fourpeaks this Winter! CLICK HERE for Prices at our Fourpeaks Backcountry Camps.Prices: Fourpeaks Backcountry Camps. "Less expensive then staying at a Hotel?" More about how expensive Fourpeaks is. Didn't understand that our listed rates are for single/double occupancy. We limit occupancy and charge for extra people and dogs. (You can't just squeeze in all the folks you want.)
    Shared accommodations may not provide adequate privacy. Planning a Vacation Get-Togther? "I called your establishment to inquire about about lodging for 4 couples . . ." Fourpeaks camps are designed for just one person, a couple or a family. For a personal nature retreat. Sometimes two couples will fit OK, but it's better if they rent another camp.
    Fourpeaks Guests earn Fourpeaks Frequent Flyer points. Reduced Rate Plans for Returning Guests. "I did notice a 200 point deduction for 'complaining about the firewood.'" Some folks try to count their Fourpeaks Frequent Flyer points on their own. I don't do the math. I leave it up to my staff of experienced Adirondack guides and their (scientifically proven) algorithm.
    Adirondack Poetry at FourpeaksAdirondack Poetry at Fourpeaks. "The location is gorgeous . . . yet your poetry had a strong negative current throughout every page." I don't understand aggressively happy people. My Zen (a study of realtime cause and effect in minute detail) exposes the chanci-ness of experience. Feel happy about it? Sad? Not really.
    (Still, some guests do find me a bit grumpy.)

    Seven Secluded Cabins.
    "One of your guests mentioned that The Cabin and New camp are quite close to the office, cars in and out, etc and that's not really for us." All 7 of our places are private and lots more secluded than anything else you're likely to find. Still, to help prospective visitors make the optimum choice, we've devised the Seclusion Index #0-10 to help them decide which place is right for them.

    Thoreau House.
    "I didn't like the absolute whole wilderness like the no bathroom and how we would shower and bathe . . . anything with electric and running water inside? " Stay at Thoreau House.
    Real Adirondacks Wilderness with not so much wilderness in it as all that.
    Is it dangerous to operate the wood stove . . .

    Safety First!
    "Is it dangerous to operate the wood stove . . ." If you have a lot of scary questions about personal safety in connection with heating with wood, suggest you tell us and we'll rent you a place where a wood fire is not necessary.
