To make a Reservation, please contact us at:
The Orendaga on Northville Lake    
732 South Main Street  Northville, NY  12134

The Main House Reception is open most
days from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m, by advance
reservation, or by chance.

Is the property family friendly?
Yes! The Orendaga is an ideal Inn for families.
However, please note that our Cabins are
not child "proof" and children must be
supervised at all times.

Do you have air conditioning?
No.  The Cabins & Suites are shaded by mature
trees and stay quite comfortable even on the
hottest Adirondack days.  We value fresh air
and provide ceiling & table fans to catch the
summer breezes.

Can we swim in the Northville Lake?
Yes!  Motorized boats are not allowed on the
Northville Lake, which is perfect for kayakers
and swimmers.  We have a swimming area and
dock at our private beach.

Please note that payment of a deposit serves as acceptance of our deposit and cancellation policies, as detailed below.

CANCELLATION POLICY for 2020: With the uncertainty around COVID-19 and current events, we are offering a flexible cancellation option for reservations through December 31, 2020. You may cancel your reservation prior to arrival and receive a gift certificate for the full deposit amount to be used toward a future stay on or before December 31, 2021. The gift certificate cannot be exchanged for a cash refund, and will expire on December 31, 2021.

Our standard cancellation policy (below), which provides a refund of a deposit minus a cancellation fee, remains available for reservations cancelled with 14 days or more advance notice.

DEPOSITS: To secure your reservation, a deposit is required. For stays less than one week, a deposit equal to one night’s stay is required. For reservations of a week or longer, 1/3 of the total bill is required. The balance of your bill can be paid at the time of check-out.

CANCELLATIONS: We require 14 day advance notice of your arrival date to receive a refund of the deposit, minus a $50 cancellation fee per cabin and suite reserved for one week or less. The cancellation fee for reservations of more than a week will be assessed individually.

For cancellations within 14 days of your reservation, no deposit refund can be issued. Within 3 days of the arrival date, you are responsible for the entire reservation. Late arrivals (after the first date of the reservation) and early departures (prior to the last date of the reservation) are not refundable.

Certain times of the year allow us to be more flexible with this policy, and we may be able to issue a credit toward a future stay at our discretion. As a small operation, we do need to maintain a business policy, even in the event of poor weather or last minute problems or circumstances.

PAYMENT: Payment may be made via cash, all major credit cards, and personal or traveler’s check made payable to The Orendaga. There will be a $35 charge for returned checks.

CHECK-IN is from 3PM to 6PM. Please call ahead if other arrangements are required.
CHECK-OUT is 10AM.  
Arrangements for an early check-in or late check-out (1 hour) must be made in advance to avoid additional charges.

Please note:  cellular phone service is somewhat unreliable in Northville.  We will gladly take phone messages for guests during office hours.
