Blue Mountain Lake, New York Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

At the intersection of Routes 28 and 30 in the heart of the Adirondacks is an exquisite village by the side of a lake bespeckled with tiny islands. In the background, Blue Mountain stands watch at an altitude of 3, 759 feet. A three-mile path winds its way up to the top where a spectacular view of the village and lake unfolds.

On Route 30 in the village, the Adirondack Museum relates the whole story behind Blue Mountain Lake and the Adirondack region in its 22-building complex. The New York Times once referred to the museum as "the best of its kind in the world." It documents life in this rugged countryside, including everything from its logging history to the wildlife, culture and art of the region. Most of its buildings focus on a single theme ? one for transportation, another for furniture, etc. The museum is, without a doubt, the final authority on the then and now's of Adirondack life.

Another excellent museum is the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts with its varied exhibits on quilting, furniture and pottery, among other things. They also have awesome concerts, workshops and films and, a great little gift store filled with regional arts and crafts.

Beauty abounds in Blue Mountain Lake, but fine dining does not. The only restaurant in town is Potter's Resort on Route 30 and menu choices are limited. And although there are cottages and motel units to be found, four-star hotels have not found their way into the area yet and Blue Mountain remains basically a beautiful place to camp.

Blue Mountain Lake is about 115 miles from Albany on Route 30.
