Retreats and Reunions
With 250 acres of private land to wander around on, and several buildings with different types of lodging available, The Bark Eater is an excellent and flexible location for groups—for workshops, retreats, and reunions.
The Inn offers a quiet, relaxed atmosphere minutes away from all the activities Lake Placid has to offer. Enjoy breath-taking views of the mountains, and then set out to find adventures suitable for every interest and age group.
Perfect for large and small weddings, the Bark Eater is nestled in a mountain setting with comfortable isolation. Our polo fields offer spectacular views of the High Peaks and can accommodate any size tents. The Inn also has plenty of lawn space. We can help connect you with a variety of reliable local suppliers for all your wedding needs. This is a truly memorable setting for your special occasion.
Rock & Ice Climbing
Minutes away from the Bark Eater is perfect terrain for learning, and training, on a wide variety of rock and ice, ranging from convenient locations roadside – or down the road (including the Bark Eater walls) to remote backcountry trips. There are numerous guides and climbing schools, and many local guides have gone on to conquer famous peaks such as Everest, coming back to teach and lecture.
The Bark Eater’s own pond, locally famous as the site of an annual children’s fishing derby, is a great place to practice your casting before heading out.
