“What an easy and relaxing experience at Dylan’s hostel! Dylan promptly accepted my request, sent me directions, and checked in with me when I was running late. When I arrived, I walked into a warm welcoming living room where Dylan sat chatting with the other guests. Dylan is easygoing, down to earth, well traveled and intellectually curious and is a pleasure to talk with. The entire place is cozy, spacious, and clean, clean, clean. It’s simple and comfortable, perfect for a few nights away from my busy life in a city. The bathrooms are immaculate and well appointed. My bed was comfortable and the comforters kept me warm. The kitchen is large and had plenty of cooking supplies and fridge space. The hostel sits across from the Hudson River and each time I stepped outside I only heard the sounds of the water. I was looking for a relaxing few nights to rest and explore a new area when I wasn’t skiing at Gore. I really enjoyed spending both evenings in the living room talking with the other guests and Dylan.”
From Air BB:
Staying with Dylan for our Whitewater plans the next day was the best decision we ever made. He even offered to be our guide for whitewater and he was amazing. His hostel was clean and very modern. The place smelt like fresh wood and we loved it. There was a fireplace that would be kept lit when we were there. The room we rented was the double queen bed and it was spacious and warm. It was beautiful waking up seeing the mountains in your window and hearing the Hudson River flow in the morning. Dylan and his friends were very accommodating and friendly. They made suggestions on what activities we could do while we were in the area. We plan on staying with them again soon for more Adirondack trips and Gore mountain activities. Definitely a must stay for your trips at North Creek.From New Milford, NJ · June 2015
Dylan was a really stellar host. We had fresh sheets and towels, a warm fire, and coffee in the morning. What more could you want? The hostel was clean and cozy, and the best part: it was 5 minutes away from the base of the mountain! Couldn’t recommend this spot more.

  • 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1/11/15We stayed at River Beds for three nights, it has a super relaxed/laid back atmosphere, the owner(Dylan) is very accommodating and the location to Gore Mountain Skiing and the Hudson River rafting is perfect. The wood fire, comfy lounges, WiFi and amazing beds are also worth a mention.If we are ever in the area again, we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here.

Great place to stay. Cozy and comfortable just like home. Very clean and very comfortable beds. Dylan (owner) is super friendly and willing to accommodate unusual requests. This was our first stay here and we only stayed a single night while skiing at Gore but would have been comfortable staying a week. Will definitely stay there again and I highly recommend you stay there as well.

There is a map at the bottom the website. Finding River Beds is easy if you know where to look and aren’t relying completely on a cellphone or even an older GPS system. The address is 4479 State Route 28 North River NY, Zipcode 12856. I strongly suggest printing out google maps directions if you’re not familiar with Route 28 between North Creek and Indian Lake. Please don’t hesitate to ask for basic sight based directions from either Indian lake or North Creek to River Beds as you make your reservation.
