Love this place. People are so friendly. They offer so many options too! There was the kayaking and tubing on the lazy river. Did both, so much fun!! Rafting on the hudson was great, and the family friendly rafting on the Sacandaga river was a blast for the young kids that were in my raft! already planing my trip for this summer!
A few of my friends booked a white water rafting trip with Beaver Brook. The rapids were fun, the wilderness was beautiful, however, our guide was completely inappropriate. He made many sexual remarks and even took pictures without our knowledge. He ended the trip by asking if he could take pictures for his personal collection. There are several rafting companies that raft in the same exact area at Beaver Brook. We are excited to go back, however we will never return to, or recommend Beaver Brook to anyone.
I took my 10 & 12 y/o nephews up to Gore in 12/2006, and I went to Beaver Brook to rent ski gear for them. The staff was great, and really made sure the equipment was the right fit for them. The equipment was up to date (no rear-entry boots), in great condition, and the price was right. To top it off, the skis were really nicely tuned! Fresh wax and sharp edges. I don't think my nephews ever skied on freshly tuned skis before, and it made a big difference.
Unfortunately, this year we're going skiing elsewhere, and I'm looking for a rental shop for my nephews again. I was thinking back to Beaver Brook from last year, and I'm wishing that they were at this place too!
It's rare that I find people in a ski rental shop that really care, so I feel that I have to mention them.
This was my first time white water rafting. The river was beautiful - July in the Adirondacks and the water was adventurous. Our previous nights stay was - no phones, bed were OK and places to eat were just a few ranging from cheap, but good, to expensive (didn't try that). Bathrooms were good. We got up the next morning and drove back to the gas station for morning coffee and snack.
The Beaver Brook people were friendly and young and gave us anything we needed to be comfortable. It was warm, so we didn't need wet suits but a couple of people took jackets, which were worn or our guides promptly stored away. Five people and a guide to each boat.
The rafting seemed easy, even though we got stuck a few times - a friendly bump from a following raft took care of that. There were about 5 rafts in our flotilla. Along with several other groups. The groups tended to stay separated.
We started from the Inn at 9am and got halfway down the river by noon. Then we beached and used the rock toilets and had our PBJ lunches. We swam several times as the river got to broad calm spots. And at one point we jumped off this really big rock into the river.
We were pretty much done by 3 or 4 pm and went back to the Inn. There we had a Stuffed Salmon - corn on the cob dinner and left about 5pm. It was a nice day.
