2.8 Miles from the Hudson House, Gore has 108 trails, boasts 2537 vertical feet, and is home to the most skiable acreage in New York. The State of New York allocated funding to improve the state’s ski resorts and Gore is already showing the results. Gore is doing a complete renovation of the Saddle Lodge, adding to the Northwoods Lodge and building a new Summit Warning Lodge.

Lake Abanakee Sugar House (21 minutes from Hudson House) P.O. Box 8 Route 28, Indian Lake, NY 12842 For local maple syrup and other unique gifts, this is a must stop. We happened upon her “workshop” during her syrup season and got to see it being made firsthand. She has her trees around the lake and they were collecting the spring run. The wooden house is on the right hand side heading towards Indian Lake and she usually has a flag out by the street. It’s very easy to miss, so start going slower about 18 miles down the road….
