Beautiful setting with friendly people and a size that not too large, not too small. Good for sailing small boats, fishing, canoeing, whatever you please.

Super nice friendly people everywhere. There is a l lot to do, mountains to climb, boats to use on the lakes, great places to eat. Good active night life here and in nearby Lake Placid.

A number of fresh vegetable small farmers offer their fare on Saturdays, not sure how late into Fall but at least through October growing season. Other products available as well.
