Description of Area: This vacation area is located in the foothills of the Adirondacks and on the lake shore. The Lake is approximately 32 miles long and is nearly 3 miles wide. Much of the shoreline is unsettled through federal and state conservation efforts. Small communities surround the lake, each lending its own unique style and way of life. This area offers the largest mix of attractions, restaurants, shops and nightlife. You can rent a boat, watch a war reenactment, relax on the beach, take a cruise, play miniature golf, parasail, hit the arcades, ride in a horse drawn carriage, have a cocktail overlooking the lake, or just relax on a bench and watch the world go by.

Travel Time to the job site, example: 5 hours from New York by bus. Cost $50.00.
