A Welcome to Friends Lake
What is it about a lake vacation thatís so invigorating? Is it the scenery, the swish of the waves, the feeling that thereís no hurrying needed? Or is it the thrill of carving up the water on a Jet ski or slicing through the surf (at top speed) on a speedboat?
The lakes of upper New York State have come in for their share of visitors for well over a hundred years now. This is especially true in the Adirondacks region, where mountains and lakes coexist and a multitude of activities lure the returning lake cabin owner and the rookie vacation home renter alike.
Friends Lake, New York, is not a town; itís an actual lake, tucked between towns of Chestertown, Weverton, and Warrensburg. Geographically speaking, itís roughly midway between Lake George and Hudson Gorge.
Visitors arenít a strange site in this area of New York; the pull of the Adirondacks, the scenery, and the clear lake water is obvious. To the north, thereís Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest, Hudson Gorge, and Schroon Lake; to the east, Lake George. Visitors can enjoy any number of outdoor activities, from hiking and fishing in the summer to skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Thatís one reason Friends Lake and surrounding areas are popular for vacation home rentals.
