Long Lake is located in the 140 mile long Raquette River. Fun fact, the Raquette River flows north for fourteen miles. W.H.H. Murray, a frequent visitor in the late 1800’s once said, “if you desire to see some of the finest scenery imagine, pass up the Raquette to Long Lake and when, some two miles up the lake, turn your face toward the north, and you will behold what is worth the entire journey to see.” The Town of Long Lake was first settled in the 1830s by Joel Plumley, David Keller and E. H. St. John. Plumleys and Kellers still reside in Long Lake, and if you visit Long Lake, you'll join the throngs of families that return year after year, generation after generation.
Whether it’s boating, fishing, camping or hiking, Long Lake boasts all of it. A visit to the Lake is truly stepping back into a traditional way of life. With elegant dining, great camps and a beautiful lake, Long Lake has something for everyone. Spent the day on the lake soaking up the rays on the party barge? Or would you rather have a night out at one of Long Lake's broad range of restaurants. The Adirondack Museum and The Wild Center give you a nice, dry break from the water while allowing you to uncover the rich history of the area.
Syracuse, renowned for its snowy winters, is less than a three hour drive from Long Lake. It offers big-city amenities with a small-town feel. A city of hills, valleys, lakes, and streams, it sits on the shore of Lakes Onondaga, is within 20 miles of the beautiful Finger Lakes region, and 30 miles from Lake Ontario. Cross in to New York's neighbor to the east, and visit Montpelier, Vermont, the smallest state capitol in the United States. Hubbard and North Branch Parks offer a wealth of outdoor activities, from cross country skiing in the winter to hiking and mountain biking in the summer. The Winooski River offers thrilling whitewater rafting and canoeing. Montpelier also offers a number of cultural pursuits, from numerous galleries and museums to the gold-domed State House.
The Adirondack Hotel is a unique blend of rustic Adirondack and Victorian design. The building has been renovated to provide modern accommodations with the feeling of stepping into the past. Lake cabin rentals are available while more traditional lodging like lake cottages, and cabins are also great choices.
Long Lake is located halfway between Syracuse and Montpelier. NY-30 and NY-28 will take you right there! Public transportation is available to the nearby larger cities like Glens Falls, Lake George, or Lake Placid, but you'll need your own car to make it the rest of the way.
