Can you imagine? Snow covered pine forests with trails interlacing them everywhere in the Adirondack Mountains. Picturesque as a Norman Rockwell painting, perfect for you to put on your snowshoes or cross country skies, trek down the hundreds of miles of trails where you may see a white tail deer or even a bull moose. Or bring up your snowmobile and revve them up right outside your cabin door and get on to the New York state trails. Skip over Rt 28 in Blue Mt Lake and hit the brand new trail that goes through Long Lake and Newcomb.
Maybe you want to ice fish to get away from it all. You don’t have to go far, more than 10 gorgeous snow covered lakes within 20 minutes from your room; Blue Mountain Lake, Indian, Raquette, Eagle, Abinakee, Lake Durant as well as Adirondack and Rock Lakes are just a few to put in your auger and angle for some fresh holiday fare. Caught with your own rod! You just might get a small or large mouth bass, land lock salmon or a lake trout to compliment your savory roasted potatoes with onions, brussel sprouts or garlic flavored broccoli.
If fishing ain’t your thing, how about down hill skiing, snowboarding or snow tubing. Three ski mountains, Gore, Big Tupper and Mac Cauley are nearby. Families can enjoy economy of the smaller family run mountains where lift tickets start as low as $15 per day and rentals at $20. Or for the more skilled and daring Gore Mt offers everything any of the big ski mountains offer. Ask about a Stay and Ski Package where local hoteliers offer discounted lodging rates and where get you the best prices on lift tickets… better than the ticket window!
Blue Mountain Rest in Blue Mt Lake offers you this incredible access to winter holiday fun. All of their cabins have fully equipped kitchens to cook that perfect holiday meal and big enough room for a family or ski group of 24 guests. But you don’t have to bring the whole family or club, maybe you just want to have a romantic week or weekend for 2 next to the warm glow of your own private fireplace which some of the cabins have. All rooms sleep 4 or more and have that cozy, homey Adirondack feel all decorated in holiday attire. Ask about their winter packages and special deals.
The Adirondacks a winter holiday mecca or any time of year.
