Orenda Landscape

About Us

Orenda is an all-inclusive outdoor retreat nestled amongst 40 acres of lush backcountry, rolling hills and along a pristine mountain brook, where guests can enjoy nature at its most spectacular; the Adirondack Mountains, the mighty Hudson River, and the pristine waters of the Lake region. A rustic oasis, Orenda is an ideal getaway for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels, families, couples and those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and re-connect with nature.

At our private and secure family owned 40-acre mountain property, you will have total access to beautiful mountain vistas, rivers, lakes and the rugged Adirondack Mountains. The retreat’s accommodations feature four spacious and private canvas cabins, each in their own unique setting, fitted with highest quality camping amenities.

Orenda works with each guest to develop customized itineraries based on their activity preferences and provides a variety of options including hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, yoga, rock-climbing, white-water rafting, and fun activities for kids such as arts & crafts and basic camping skills. In addition, guest will enjoy  savory fireside meals daily, educational outdoor seminars and stargazing at night.

Located in the stunning Adirondack State Park, Orenda is nestled on a mountainside in Johnsburg, New York, along the shore of Mill Creek, and a few minutes from  beautiful Garnet Lake. The retreat is just a quick drive to Gore Mountain ski area, the Hudson River, North Creek, an authentic ski-town and the many activities of the popular Lake George Region. Orenda is accessible by car and is just a 4-hour drive from New York City and just a 10-minute drive to the new Saratoga & North Creek Railway, which connects travelers from New York City to the Adirondacks.

Rain or shine, we at Orenda are looking forward to creating an unforgettable Adirondack adventure for you and your family.
