Lake Luzerne- a Year-Round Destination in the Adirondacks
I just wanted to take a moment to talk about the pretty well kept Town of Lake Luzerne. Here we sit just a few miles south of Lake George Village and just north of Saratoga Springs. The 2 big named Towns. Coming from the north to south along Route 9N through Lake Luzerne is Lake Vanare feeding into Forest Lake which continues to form Fourth, Third and Second Lakes and the last is Lake Luzerne which outlets into Mill Creek and then into the Hudson River. The narrowest point of the Hudson River is called Rockwell Falls where the Gorge runs into the Sacandaga River and Reservoir. A beautiful scenic spot.
Things to do in Lake Luzerne, NY
Whitewater rafting and tubing are popular activities in Town, both Sacandaga Outdoor Center and Tubby Tubes are busy running trips on the Sacandaga River. They also have kayaks for rent.
Bennetts Horse Stable has been in Lake Luzerne since 1942, and also has guided snowmobile rides in the winter.
The Adirondack Folk School is a fairly new addition to the Village of Lake Luzerne, and has been a wonderful addition to the Community. The School is teaching crafts and culture of the Adirondack Region.
The Luzerne Music Center on Lake Luzerne is a unique summer music camp for students from 11 to 18. During July and August there is a Faculty Artist Concert Series on Friday evenings and on Monday evenings is the Luzerne Festival Series featuring distinguished guest artists.
Other activities include the Painted Pony Rodeo, one of the oldest Rodeos in the Country. Very popular restaurants in Lake Luzerne include Ciro’s, where you can get the best steak and hearty Italian, the Waterhouse known for it’s prime rib, and Up River Cafe which has new owners, great food and the best view in Town overlooking the Hudson River.
Well maintained tennis courts sit along the Hudson River in the Village, and two public parks and beaches bring tourists from all over. In the winter months, the South Warren Snowmobile Club maintains a 100 mile snowmobiling trail system going through Lake Luzerne. Plus on the East side of Lake Luzerne is the West Mountain Ski area. I know I have mentioned a lot, but not nearly enough. Fabulous Adirondack Fall Foliage, hiking on nearby Hadley Mountain, fishing in the Lakes and the Saratoga and North Creek Railroad are just a few more activities.
