In order to make your stay safe and enjoyable, as well as those of future visitors, we ask that you follow these simple rules:
Please take work shoes and boots off downstairs. Please keep muddy or snowy footwear on the porch.
Make sure the damper is open before starting a fire, and keep the fire under control. Do not leave the living room with a fire burning, and make sure the fire has burned down before turning in for the night. Also, make sure any fires in the fireplace are out and the stove is off before leaving for the day.
Help us conserve energy and keep our costs down- turn the thermostat down to 54 degrees if you are going to be gone all day, and especially at the end of your stay.
No smoking throughout the house, and no food or drink in the bedrooms. Please smoke outside, or on the covered porch (winter).
Put all empty cans and bottles in the designated cans on the porch. The waste can in the kitchen is for paper & food garbage only (no cans/bottles).
Don’t move the furniture- help us protect the floors.
Do not light or use the grill on the porch. If you are going to use the grill, move it into the driveway before lighting the charcoal.
Socializing is expected, roughhousing will not be tolerated. If you deliberately destroy something, you will be asked to replace it. That said, things wear out and break. If that happens during your stay, please leave a note on the bulletin board in the kitchen so we can have it replaced.
Be safe on the trails- whether you are snowmobiling or 4-wheeling, stay on the trails, and keep your speed in check. Be aware of the fence lines and beaver dams. Our property has a number of wire fences that are hard to see. Springs and running water can create soft ice and be very dangerous.
Our fields are actively being farmed. Leave gates as you found them. If you are 4-wheeling, stay out of our fields to avoid causing crop damage.
Route 194 is closed to snowmobile and ATV traffic. Both McGowan/Grant and Tontarski roads are open, and connect to the rest of the trail network. Use the connector trail behind the house to get to McGowan road. The Lewis County Sheriff’s department frequently patrols route 194, and will issue a summons if you are on Rt. 194.
Beaver Creek Lodge was created in the late 1980's by Robert Whipple, a consummate farmer and outdoorsman from Knox, NY who loved the beauty of the Tug Hill region. Bob envisioned a place where one could come and enjoy the bounty of nature's offering, while staying in a place with all the comforts of home. Whether you come for hiking, hunting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, skiing, fishing, communing with nature or just plain escaping the normal grind, Beaver Creek Lodge offers the perfect home base. Today, that vision is continued by Bob's children, who invite you to come experience Tug Hill and Beaver Creek Lodge.
