In spring, summer, fall- hiking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, water skiing, renting a pontoon boat or motorized fishing craft or speed boat right on Blue Mt Lake, which is less than an 1 minute drive or about a 10 minute walk to the public beach which is life guarded in the prime season. Hunting.

Blue Mountain Lake is the dead center of the Adirondack Mountains. A six million acre "forever wild" sanctuary protected the APA (The Adirondack Park Association). Whether you are looking for that "off the beaten path" experience, hiking on pristine wilderness, finding one of the hundreds of lakes tucked away from nowhere, a romantic waterfall, looking for adventure kayaking on secluded pond or stream, mountain biking on some of the best trails in the state (town of Inlet), riding the rapids on a whitewater raft at the origins on the Hudson, flying off a lake on a seaplane to get a birds eye view or just chilling out on a sandy beach sunbathing this amazing area has dozens of outdoor opportunities. A true haven for the outdoors-man or woman.

For families the Art Center in Blue Mt Lake, Adirondack Museum & the Wild Center offers historic and cultural experiences which are very interactive. The Enchanted Forest Water Safari an outdoor water park, the Adirondack Experience for zip lining & maze like adventures are great day outings. Or picnic at the numerous waterfalls in the area.

Great eateries abound in the main centers of Old Forge, Inlet, Indian Lake, Lake Pleasant, North River, Lake George, Tupper or Saranac Lakes. And especially in Lake Placid the home of the 1980 Olympics. Many are lake side with amazing views.

So much to do, so much to see, so come join us in these spectacular mountains.

About Lenny Baglieri

I have been in the hospitality business almost my whole life. My family owned a summer resort in the Catskill mountains from 1946 to 1987 when I was a child. I was literally born into it. I was fortunate to be able to get back into the business I love in 2006 when I purchased Blue Mt Rest. The Homestead is our vacation home, which we hope you make your own. My main purpose as host is to help you have a great time in these incredibly beautiful mountains.

Lenny Baglieri purchased this house in 2006

Why Lenny Baglieri chose Blue Mountain Lake

The location is perfect. Beautiful mountain views and lakes every where. Blue Mt Lake is an international destination. We have had people from over 53 countries since we opened and visitors from all over the USA.

What makes this house unique

Knotty pine gives this vacation home a cozy feel, with it's wood burning fireplace, out door deck and secluded pond view in the back and a spectacular mountain view out front.

Owner's Response: Sam was courteous and attentive. With his group of friends I believe they had a good time hiking the Adirondacks, even if it was a brief stay. Would hope to have them return and they would be welcome to do so. Lenny Baglieri Owner

Vacation Haven

  • 5 of 5

Lenny and Boka were extremely accommodating and generous while we were there. The house was very clean, well laid out and comfortable. It is tucked back off the main road and includes a huge deck and a nice walk down to the fire it. BMR was conveniently located for all of the daily outings we planned and was not a bad ride into the Lake Placid area (something we do yearly.) The ADK museum is basically right around the corner. It was great to see the new interactive additions to the museum as well as a friend's painting hanging in there. We enjoyed our time (despite our dog becoming sick) and had everything we needed at Blue Mountain Rest. ANd, it was lovely making the acquaintance of Lenny and Bok and their little dog Jack!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Lenny and Boka could not have been more hospitable. The accommodations were clean, well appointed, and well equipped. The grounds had a nice open area and trail in back for our dog. We are moving to the area and will definitely recommend BMRest to visiting family and friends!
