At The Bark Eater

Your adventure begins here… The Bark Eater Inn is nestled on 200 acres of Adirondack forests and wild flowering meadows. This beautiful and peaceful landscape has been used for generations as a place to explore, relax and connect to nature. Whether by foot, bicycle or snowshoe, our diverse trail system offers a variety of opportunities for guests to explore and take in the wonders of the Adirondack wild.

Experience our unique and spectacular views of the High Peaks. Wander through wildflower strewn meadows, tranquil forests and alluring woodlands.  Right outside our door, fishing enthusiasts will enjoy our backyard pond, the native brown trout of Nichols Brook or a short walk to the east branch of the Ausable River. When not walking on the wild side, our guests can enjoy the artful display of the Bark Eater gardens.  Inspired and designed by Meghan Kirkpatrick our General Manager, our gardens feature a classic cottage style with different annual themes to peak your interest throughout the seasons, year after year. The main event, however, is the quarter acre ornamental and organic vegetable, herb and flower garden showcased on the front lawn of the Inn.
