Timberlock Hotel

NY Route 30

(518) 648-5494

This family-friendly resort would thrill Thoreau: log buildings; log railings; and log cabins, fitted with twig towel hooks and door handles.

ONLY THE KIDS ARE WIRED Forget about HBO; there's no TV. Though the main lodge has electricity, the 23 tin-roofed cabins are lit by propane lamps, and propane heaters supply hot water. A woodstove keeps you warm.

THEN TRY MAKING A LANYARD After taking a trail ride, canoeing on Indian Lake, and hitting some bull's-eyes at the archery range, head to the woodshop, where you can assemble a birdhouse or decorate a frame with birch bark—and twigs.

PASS THE STUFFING Everyone eats together at long tables on a porch overlooking the lake. And at noon on Sundays there's always a turkey dinner.
