IMAGINE . .
. . .The murmur of rapids cascading from
woodland peaks, the trumpet of Canada Geese, the pastel wave
of wildflowers. Imagine drinking in the scent of lilac and honeysuckle,
and feeling the soft green grass spring up beneath your toes.
Imagine a place where the childhood you thought was over is rediscovered,
where your wonder is rekindled and your soul revived like the
season blossoming all around you. Imagine this myriad of miracles,
multiply it by infinity, and then maybe you'll be close to imagining
Spring in Blue Mountain Lake.
Point, we understand your need to imagine. We've felt the stress,
endured the crowds, dealt with the deadlines, longed for home.
We've traveled to distant lands and despite the treasures there,
truly feel (with no disrespect intended toward the rest of the
planet) that our lake in the mountains is the single most beautiful
place we've ever had the privilege of being in.
The roar of nearby Buttermilk Falls
is the perfect season to enjoy wildlife. Beaver and muskrat emerge
from their lodges; osprey and falcon soar our skies once more.
If you're lucky you might spot a mink or marten dashing along
the shoreline, or come face to face with an otter - who's equally
curious about you!
While we can't predict
what creatures you might see, some of our recent Springtime guests
were thrilled to share the premises with a tiny fawn, whose mother
had made the thickets of Prospect Point her nursery.
also heralds a delightful North Country tradition: the amazing
Adirondack Birding Festival (June 8-10), sponsored annually
by Hamilton County, is free with your stay. Join family members
and fellow guests for three incredible days filled with nature
hikes, birdwalks, canoe trips and dynamic presentations. Be
assured, we won't just drop you off in the wilderness - you'll
be led by some of the most knowledgeable guides in the mountains.
Canoe through hidden marshes and lakes and spot rare birds and
wild creatures. Join us on driving safaris down backwoods roads
to discover parts of the wilderness that elude even many Adirondackers.
You can participate in whichever events you feel like, and just
rest up and do what you please the rest of the time. But whatever
you do, by all means take the camera!
