The Hedges on Blue Mountain Lake is a well-known Adirondack landmark that has been enjoyed by individuals and families as guests for generations. Situated on 12 acres of pristine Adirondack woods, with 1600 feet of waterfront, The Hedges has more than 30 lodging options, including fourteen lakeside and non-lakeside cabins, five suites, 12 rooms, a full-service dining room serving breakfast and dinner daily; and boats, docks, a beach, tennis courts and a game room.
Unique Features: For his rugged yet comfortable Great Camp, Civil War General Hiram Duryea chose one of the most beautiful settings in the Adirondack Mountains. Into the shoreline of crystal-clear Blue Mountain Lake he tucked a boathouse, dining room, kitchen, and other various and sundry buildings for the enjoyment of his family and guests wishing to escape the heat and humidity of New York City. Over the past 100 years since the “General’s Camp” became The Hedges, many buildings have been added, and improvements made.
Accommodations: The Hedges offers a wide variety of accommodations from Adults-Only lodge rooms to four-bedroom cabins for your family or friends. The Main Lodge offers four lodge rooms including the Colonel’s Room which was the General’s residence at the camp. The Main Lodge rooms are Adults-Only. The Stone Lodge has six lodge rooms upstairs and a 2 bedroom suite downstairs. There is also a common area with a fireplace. The lodge rooms are Adults-Only while the Suite is a great family unit with fireplace.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the Lakeside Cabins. Cabin Three has one bedroom, a queen and a twin. Cabin five is closest to the swimming beach.
Dining: Relax in one of the dining locations and let the chefs pamper you with their culinary creations. A made-to-order breakfast (served with Adirondack maple syrup!), four-course dinner plus an evening snack are included in your daily room rate. Picnic lunches and alcoholic beverages can be ordered for additional charges.
Activities: After relaxing a bit you may wish to take one of the boats and explore Blue Mountain Lake with its many islands and hidden inlets. The adventure-some can paddle over to Eagle Lake and Utowana Lake. These lakes when combined with Blue Mountain Lake offer over seven miles of peaceful waterways and breathtaking beauty. Crystal clear Blue Mountain Lake offers a wide variety of aquatic species for a great fishing experience. You can simply drop a hook off the shore or rent a motorboat from the Blue Mountain Lake Boat Livery.
Spa & Fitness: There is no on-site spa or fitness center, but with all of the amazing outdoor activities and fresh air though, you won’t need them. Nearby there are various trails to consider that are described in their new Hiking Guidebook available at the Office. They vary according to distance from The Hedges, length of hike, ability level, and views. Some guests make a point of climbing Castle Rock or Blue Mountain every year, and others like to try new trails!
