Star Lake, the 'Gem of the Adirondacks' , is spring fed and known for its clarity and freshness. Relax, fish, swim, hike, have campfires and enjoy each other’s company. Cruise the picturesque lake and anchor at the sandbar on our motorized 'classic raft boat'. A canoe and small sailboat are also offered in the house rental. Or if you prefer, simply lounge along the shoreline enjoying day long sunshine. For you golfers, there is also a 9-hole public golf course less than a mile away.

Surrounded by 500,000 acres of wilderness there are ample opportunities to hike and explore.
