Getting to Glenfield
Lewis County, which is kissed by the Tughill Plateau on one side and the Adirondack Mountains on the other, is the home of the village of Glenfield. Glenfield is about 8 miles south of Lowville, one of the main towns in the county, and 140 miles northwest of Albany. While the village is more or less due west of Pulaski and the shores of lake Ontario, you’ll have to make a northwest circuit, thanks to the winding local roads. The journey is about 57 miles.
If you’re looking for a vacation rental, what does this mean? Of course, you’ll be able to enjoy that travel trinity that the Adirondacks offers: mountains, lakes, and (in the winter, anyhow) skiing. In the summer, Lewis County can offer you a bit of both worlds: boating, canoeing, fishing, and whitewater sports in or on the water; hiking, camping, biking, horseback riding, and backpacking along dry land. If your idea of outdoor activity involves motors there’s snowmobiling in the winter and exploring the terrain via ATV in the summer.
In other words, if you’re looking for a vacation rental with an emphasis in outdoor sports, consider Glenfield and the surrounding towns of Lewis County. There’s quieter pursuits, of course - lounging on the porch and taking in a mountain view, or visiting the historical sites in Lowville and other towns - but the Glenfield is made for outdoor sports.
