The Hoot Owl is an Inn in the Adirondacks fairly close to one of the trailheads in the Park. We first started going there when we were hiking the trails that start there that are part of the Adirondack 46 - which is all 46 peaks above 4000’. Kelly and Tony are always so welcoming: Kelly always has yummy cakes for her guests, and Tony is very knowledgeable about all things outdoors up there. They are part of a community where everyone seems to help each other out and they have made sure that they give back to, and are very integrated into it.
