Hello Sunshine!

 Lake Pleasant Spring

It seems like it has been a while since we've seen you! It has been warm and sunny here and all of our snow is practically gone. There is some ice here and there but it wont be long before that is gone too! Is anyone out there ready to put their boats in the lake!?

This is also the time of year that is perfect for Spring Cleaning, which a lot of local business are taking advantage of. Soon enough everyone will be back open and ready for summer. In the mean time, enjoy the peace and quiet of these small Adirondack towns in the spring time. 

It's Christmas Time

 We are in the full swing of winter. With cold temperatures and heavy snowfalls, it looks like we are in for a much better winter than last year. Local businesses are looking forward to a busy season with lots of snowmobilers, ice fisherman, and skiers! Always be sure to check the ice for safety before crossing with a snowmoible or veturing out to fish. We wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season and New Year!

The Snow Has Arrived!

 It seems like winter has arrived. Get those snowmobiles and skis ready. It won't be long now before the trails are ready to go. Oak Mountain is hoping to open December 9th, and with the temperatures steadily dropping, it won't be long be long before the lakes are frozen over! The Adirondacks are turning into a winter wonderland.

Winter is Coming!

 Steadily dropping temperatures can only mean one thing- winter is on its way! Fall came in with a flash of brilliant colors but recent rain and snow storms seem to have knocked most of the color right off of the trees. Things are fairly peaceful and quiet for now, but snowmobile and ski season are just around the corner. Let hope for lots of much needed snow this winter!

Welcome Summer!

 Summer has arrived! It's great to see businesses opening back up, sprucing up their store fronts. Fourth of July Celebrations are coming up next weekend and business will be booming! Make sure to check out the new businesses like The Growl & Grub in Long Lake, or the newly owned Oxbow Inn in Piseco! 

 

Early Spring!


March 16, 2016


After a mild, albeit disappointing winter, it seems as though spring is just around the corner. Many of the local businesses are gearing up for their spring cleanings in preparation of tourist season. There is also fun to be had for kids and adults alike. Whether spectating or participating in the upcoming spring productions, from the Cabin Fever Players presentation of Mary Poppins in Indian Lake, to the children of Lake Pleasant with the puny Jack and the Frankenbeanstalk, there are laughs to be had. As we wait for the green to grow, it is a beautiful and peaceful time for our residents to enjoy our small towns.

The view of Lake Pleasant is taken from Melody Lodge, a favorite place for lunch and dinner. I see that the colorful flowers are blooming in the wonderful perennial garden that surrounds the Lodge.  A good sign summer is here is when you see the Ice cream windows open at Lake Side Licks and at King of the Frosties.   Town is a little quite today but soon we will be buzzing with our

      It is one of those perfect spring days when the air is clear and the contrast between green trees and blue sky can break your heart. The view of Lake Pleasant is taken from Melody Lodge, a favorite place for lunch and dinner. I see that the lupines are blooming in the wonderful perennial garden there.      I meandered during my lunch hour, stopping for the

  Last weekend was a busy one for winter recreation here. This year has seen so much more snowfall than last year (when there was close to none), that we are all reveling in snowmobiling, skiing and ice fishing. A new connector trail into the Moose River Plains will mean snowmobilers (and in the summer, mountain bikers and hikers) will be able to access Inlet and Indian Lake from Raquette

Instead of making resolutions, I want to be more appreciative. I worry too much about the future without taking time to appreciate what I have, where I am and those I love. I guess I am, in fact, making a single resolution to live more in the moment. I PROMISE TO APPRECIATE:Snow. We have it now, we may not have it later, so I will ski in the woods and appreciate the rustle of sifting snow
