The Wolf Dome features Wireless Internet, flat screen TV, a picnic table and propane barbecue, year-round heat and AC, a small fridge, microwave, a hot and cold water dispenser, There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and washer-dryer, both shared with renters of the four person Bear Cabin, at the Wendy Hall Welcome Center, about 100 feet away from the Dome. We have noted the return of our eagles to their nest at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, across from our dock on the the Ausable on Jan 30th.

The Welcome Center is a great place to learn about nature and man’s relationship to nature. You may purchase sweat shirts, tee shirts, books, photographs etc. While the Wildlife Refuge has public visitors during open hours between 10 am and 4 pm, the Refuge is all yours after 4 pm closing. Sit around the campfire or walk down to the West Branch of the Ausable River, and use our hot tub, outside wood sauna, and then the strong in spirit can go jump in the lake! Fish, swim and use our canoes and kayaks along the Ausable, which in this area is also called Lake Everest. Lucky hikers and kayakers have spotted moose, bear, coywolf, fox, fisher and eagles, as well as songbirds and any bird of prey you'll find in the Adirondacks, from owls to hawks to falcons and osprey, in the sloughs, or along the two miles of family friendly hiking trails in the 50 acre Adirondack Wildlife Refuge. 

Want to learn all about owls and falcons, and all the members of the food chain, from the micro world of insects, through birds and small mammals, along with the reptiles and amphibians which make up that food chain, and their roles in nature? Find or call Steve Hall, the owner of the Refuge, who lives in Ausable Lodge, down by the river. Steve has extensive experience with wolves, bears, raptors and moose, and will teach you all about the challenges they face as key members of the food chain. How about outer space, learning about our place in the universe, how old it is and how long we’ve been on earth, livestock and how we developed livestock out of wild animals, and the ongoing insect apocalypse and other fascinating and sometimes scary topics? Glamping with a heavy dose of Nature, and all for a good cause, as all rents are used to fund expenses at the Adirondack Wildlife refuge.

Stephen is a friendly host with interesting stories and lots of information. We enjoyed talking to him and checking out the animals at the visitor’s center. The wolf dome itself is a cool design and had everything we needed. We booked this spot primarily for the hot tub/sauna and Stephen’s place totally delivered! The view of Whiteface is incredible. We got the sauna going before we got in the hot tub so it would be ready. Neither of us had started one before but everything was provided for building the fire and it heated up quickly. We enjoyed walking the trails on the property as well, this is a gorgeous spot.

Highly recommend staying at The Adirondack Wildlife refuge! We had a very peaceful stay in the wolf dome for two nights. Check in was easy and the surroundings are very peaceful. The refuge is a great place to learn about the Adirondack park and the important work being done to restore habitats for local wildlife. Steve was very helpful with checking in and showing us to the hot tub and other amenities at the lodge. The accommodations were very comfortable and included a water cooler/hot water right in the room which was convenient at night as the bathrooms are just a short 100ft walk from the cabin. Bathrooms include a full bath with laundry and a nice shower as well as a half bathroom. Both are kept very clean and have fresh towels for guests to use. Thank You Steve for sharing your beautiful property! Will be making a point to return to the refuge next time I am in the ADK's!
