The Woods Inn 

The Woods Inn
In beautiful Inlet, you can bring your family to The Woods Inn. This historic Inn was built in the late 1800's and is located right on Fourth Lake. They have 20 rooms and can accommodate families of all sizes. They also have on-site dining facilities in the upstairs dining room for fine dining, as well as the Laughing Loon Tavern in the basement with lighter fair and cocktails.  Rent canoes and kayaks from Frisky Otter Tours for a fun family excursion on Fourth Lake!

WW Durant

If you're looking for a spot to hold a reunion for a large family of 20-50 people, consider scheduling a private charter on the WW Durant. They can customize a menu for your gathering and also have a full bar on board. After enjoying your meal in the galley, head to the top deck with your cocktail to enjoy the views of Raquette Lake. For smaller groups, check out their regularly scheduled cruises, including Sunday Brunch Cruises and a Lunch Buffet Cruise! 

John Dillon Park

If your family is more of the outdoors type, pack up a picnic lunch and head to John Dillon Park in Long Lake. Reservations are required for overnight camping, but there are three day use areas if you're just looking to have a picnic. The entire area is free to use and is fully accessible. There are over three miles of hiking trails and you can even bring your canoes and kayaks to head out on Grampus Lake to fish.
