Sacandaga Lake Neighborhoods: Edinburg
Great Sacandaga Lake, a now-flooded valley turned enormous reservoir in the Adirondack Mountains, has its share of vacationers and vacation rentals. As part of that fabled mountain chain and a destination for water sports in its own right, itís no surprise that vacation rentals are popular in this area.
Around the shores of the Lake are several towns and villages; for larger cities, youíll have to go a bit south to Saratoga, Johnstown, and Gloversville. On a triangle of land where the lake begins to narrow and branch north towards Lake George sits Edinburg. Edinburg is about 15 miles north of Broadalbin, the town on the south shores of Sacandaga Lake. Itís also 33 miles south of Lake George and 24 miles north of Saratoga.
Tourism for sport is an important part of the Adirondacks economy, but itís not the only draw. Edinburgís calendar of events lists a corn harvest dinner at the end of August, live outdoor music concerts throughout the summer, and a Strawberry Festival in June. The Copland Bridge, a 35-foot-long covered bridge spanning Beecher Creek, is Saratoga Countyís only remaining covered bridge and a point of pride for the town of Edinburg.
Summer or winter, spring or fall, each season has its own beauties in northern New York, and its own reasons to plan a vacation in the Adirondacks!
