This was our 12th visit to the ranch and we continue love coming here. This was our first visit since it switched ownership and changes have already been made to improve the ranch. The new owners were very visible and it was nice touch to have them present during dinner and at the Red Dog saloon. It's evident that they and all the staff there, are invested to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We have absolutely no complaints about our stay, we still had an amazing time despite the rainy weekend. The horse handlers were exceptional and it's always fun to talk to them about the horses. The food was very good and Big Mike was very entertaining. Overall, it's a wonderful atmosphere to sit back relax, ride horses and enjoy the Adirondack atmosphere. We always feel at home here and we're looking forward to returning again next year.

The people there were freindly and very helpful. They had activities directors for adults and for children and they planned different activities at the resort and nearby. We went white water rafting which was amazing and good for all ages, I am 52 and my husband is 54. We also kayaked on the Hudson river. The horseback riding was good and the handlers were very helpful and made accommodations for my 15 year old son who has been riding for years to make it more challenging for him.

The food was amazing!! We loved all of the food and there were plenty of choices and more food than anyone needed.

The place was very clean everywhere, the rooms, we had a cabin, the grounds, the pool, and they had beautiful gardens. It was nice that there was an indoor pool as well as the outdoor pool, and there was a hot tub by the inside pool.

It was peaceful and restful and fun. It is a little outdated in the cabins but they said they were updating them this fall. The mattresses really needed to be replaced.
We loved that there was no TV in the cabin. There was wi-fi so my teenage boys were happy.

Room Tip: Cabins had great views and I think more privacy but I think most rooms would be great.

We went there because ranches near new York got booked up or don't accept pet due to long weekend. This ranch, a little farther, but takes our dog, whom we can't leave behind. We found out that the ownership just changed for 70 days. New owners are working very hard to improve the facilities and staffing. But they inherited a fascinating herd of horses and a thousand acres of pristine land. Trails through rapid creeks, wooded Hills, small lakes, an active railway and grasslands are long and ever changing. Wranglers are experienced and accommodating. Horses are obviously well-fed. That was why we went there for. I will come back again!

This past weekend I attended a Line Dance Weekend at the new Stony Creek Resort (formerly the 1,000 Acres Ranch and Resort) in the Adirondack Mountains. The new owners are in the process of fixing up the place and they are doing a wonderful job. The food was wonderful and plentiful, the front desk was more than helpful and the new manager treated you like family. We enjoyed all the facilities – horseback riding, swimming in the outdoor and in-door pool, Jacuzzi, hiking trails, campfires with s’mores, Cowboy coffee & stories with Ed on Saturday morning and line dancing in the Red Dog Saloon. The price point for a weekend was well worth the price of admission. If you love the out-of-doors with beautiful views, you will love the Stony Creek Resort.

Room Tip: Book a cabin for the best view of the mountains and river

My friend and I found this unlikely spot for a weekend getaway. We didn't know what to expect when we pulled up and the place seemed deserted. We came during their last off-peak week, but to our surprise we had the best time ever! Our cabin was clean and cozy, we had the Hudson as our back yard and a rowboat at our disposal. We went horseback riding daily. The meals were good and plenty. The staff--Alice, Scott, Michelle, Mike, Linda, Heidi, Tuff, and others--were all wonderful! We are planning our return trip next year! This is not your fancy 5-star resort so don't come expecting the Ritz.
