This rustic lodge, built in 1886, sits in the heart of the Adirondacks and offers a peaceful setting for a trip back in time.

The Destination
A perfect vacation destination. It's no surprise that Lake Clear—in the heart of New York's Adirondack Mountains—has been a popular vacation destination since the late 1800s. At nearly 1,000 square acres, the pristine lake offers excellent fishing and boating, while hikers, bikers, and campers are drawn to the surrounding network of trails.
A trip back in time. What is surprising is that this humble hamlet has remained virtually unchanged since Paul Smith opened his famous wilderness resort near here in 1859. That's because much of the land around the lake is owned by the state and has been dutifully preserved to offer each new generation an authentic, unspoiled experience with nature.
Easy to get to. And while travelers once arrived here by train, today you'll find the two-hour drive from Montreal makes Lake Clear easy to reach on a whim.

The Digs
Built in 1886 as a trading post, Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat is among the town's oldest structures and is now a member of America's Historic Inns. And, as a steward of the environment, this 25-acre getaway is also part of the Green Hotel Association, showcasing hand-crafted lodgings and boasting several eco-friendly awards. Decorated in old-world fashion, each Lodge Room is equipped with a private bathroom and peaceful views of the property. At night, enjoy dinner in the hand-hewn dining room, serving up hearty, rustic fare based on time-honored recipes, plus more than 300 specialty beers and 350 boutique wines. Be sure to inquire about canoe, kayak, and bike rentals—with thousands of acres of backcountry wilderness to explore, you'll find plenty to discover here.
