Friends Lake

Friends Lake in the Adirondacks

Private and pristine Friends Lake is located in Upstate NY in the Southern Adirondack region. Just 3 miles long, it is one of the only lakes with no public access. This small lake is quieter than some of the other regional waters (motor boats allowed, but no jet skis).

Friends Lake is home to the renowned Friends Lake Inn,  offering fine dining, Adirondack lodgings and recreation. A great way to enjoy the rugged beauty of the Adirondacks is on horseback.  Circle B Ranch offers guided horse rides through woodland and meadows with spectacular mountain views. You’­ll also find pony rides for the younger ones, and riding lessons for students of all ages and abilities, Hay and Winter sleigh rides. Play a round of golf at beautiful Cronin’s Golf course which travels along the Hudson River!

Located only 20 minutes to Gore Mountain, this area is a favorite for winter skiers to have the best of both worlds while enjoying the true solitude of the Adirondacks.
