Snuggled in the southeast section of Adirondack Park - a Vermont-sized chunk of scenery featuring majestic lakes and awe-inspiring mountains - Brant Lake and its environs has been playing host to visitors for a long time now. Need proof? Formerly, no fewer than eight elegant hotels that lined its shore. Todayís crowd might be more family-friendly than opulent and more inclined to book a vacation rental than a resort. This and a sprinkling of summer camps testifies that Brandt Lake is still a place to enjoy.
If youíre looking for vacation rental homes in Brant Lake, donít rule out nearby options, like Schroon Lake and Mill Pond - although you will probably want to bypass the summer camp route. Brant Lake, independent of the Adirondacks that so nobly surround it, is a draw in itself, especially for fishers. Thereís bass, trout, pickerel, bullhead, and pan fish in those waters - and boating, water skiing, and other aqua-inspired delights for the non-fishing family members.
While the Adirondacks draw guests all the year round, this is a region where the snow tends to come early and stay late. The average snowfall is around six feet per year, and lakes tend to stay iced in until April. In other words, bring your skis, your snowshoes, your ice skates, and your snowmobile - or rent them from local suppliers. Whatever you plan, schedule in some time to soak up the beauty and relaxation of the Adirondacks.
