The world will wait…
Are you stressed, tired of traffic, noise, the hectic pace of the city, cell phones and computers?
Relax and unwind with views on scenic Harrisburg Lake and deluxe accommodations.

We do understand that you still have the need to connect with the outside world... so we have installed Top Notch WIFI Internet , Brand new HD TV's, and DVD's. A land line is available at the Main Lodge for emergency purposes.

Sit back and experience the beauty of nature, go hiking, swimming, tubing, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, bird watching, or sit by your own private campfire and stargaze. All this is ON SITE !

Imagine escaping to a private, exclusive Adirondack lodge tucked away in the mountains with luxury accommodations and personal attention that you just can’t get in a large resort.
Wake each morning to the mystical calls of the Loons, eat a healthy breakfast, take a morning swim in our spring fed crystal clear mountain lake just steps from our back deck.
Choose a physical activity, walking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, or maybe go horseback riding or white water rafting.
Relax in the pages of a good book and listen quietly to the whispering pines while enjoying beautiful Harrisburg Lake.
Later you can sit by the fire, maybe watch an inspiring movie or join us on an invigorating walk in the cool mountain air under a canopy of stars. You have arrived…. Slip away and be refreshed by the tranquility and beauty of God’s great outdoors!

Unplug from the Hi-tech world and reconnect with your family, friends and nature.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: I have always had a deep love for nature which my Father had instilled in me since I was a child. I was committed all my life to working hard and making enough money to be able to retire in the Adirondack Mountains that I love so much. I am a graduate of Paul Smiths College, specializing in Culinary arts and Hospitality management. My Father sent me to Paul Smith's to learn about the industry and take over our family business that he had purchased in 1960. I had to work very hard and prove myself to him before he would gift the property to me. I worked in the appraisal field for approximately 30 years and had a very successful Real Estate Appraisal Firm with 2 offices in Delray Beach and Palm Beach Florida , specializing in multimillion dollar properties. I enjoyed my work, met a lot of interesting people, however did not like sitting behind a computer and would always be dreaming of getting out of the city, away from the stress and back to the mountains. In 2012 I finally was able to totally renovate and reopen our property with the new name " Bear Country Lodge." I am living my dream and I love being able to share this beautiful place with my guests. It is my guests who always tell me "It's Magical".

Why the Owner Chose Other Lake George Properties:
Are you looking for a 'True Adirondack Experience', but want the luxury of an elegant Bavarian style chalet. My Father traveled around the world as a Chief Engineer with the Merchant Marines. He had been everywhere in the world and when he found our property he fell in love with it's uniqueness. The mountains, the peace and quiet, the magnificent stars at night, the calling of the loons. Nestled amongst 100 FT pines Bear Country Lodge is enchanting, swim in our spring fed mountain magical lake, go fishing, go canoeing, paddleboarding, kayaking, hike the beautiful close by trails, sit by your own PRIVATE CAMFIRE, ( not one that you have to share with the rest of the resort) The chalets are luxurious and cozy with knotty pine very adirondack style interior, decorated in the Native American style. Luxurious Denali bedding. My Father originally purchased this property as the Original Stony Creek Dude Ranch back in 1960. I have been coming here for over 50 years now. Please read about our History on owner's website.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
A 'True Adirondack Experience', On site Owner. Luxurious bedding, quiet, peaceful, magical, unique, special. Nestled amongst beautiful 100 Ft pines. The clean crisp air is intoxicating. Stars magnificent.
