Live The Adirondack Good Life:

  • Your neighbors are glad to lend a helping hand - or chainsaw
  • We celebrate each season - from winter's snow to autumn's brilliant foliage to the first trillium of spring
  • Morning commutes: when we can't eliminate them, we take comfort in little traffic and wildlife sightings
  • Enjoy public access to nearly 1000 ponds, lakes and rivers
  • Hiking, boating, paddling, skiing, snowmobiling, fishing and hunting abound
