While enjoying the stunning view from the front deck the cottage cook can grill on either the charcoal or propane grills, and the whole group can relax at the picnic table. Sky View’s location offers the best of both worlds: Nature excursions & activities at the foothills of the Adirondacks Upstate New York, plus a world of shopping, dining and entertainment: we are just 12 miles from Saratoga Springs. 45 minutes from Lake George; 3.5 hours from New York City.
Lake Desolation has something for everyone! Hiking for beginners and advanced, dog hikes, biking, swimming, fishing, and good old-fashioned relaxing. Boat to Tinney's Tavern - the one restaurant on the lake. Visit nearby downtown and walk along Main Street at the lake.
Attention snowmobilers and ice skaters: Due to our elevation, we are one of the first lakes to freeze - making Lake Desolation a popular winter destination. From first-ice, mid-January through mid-February, ice-fishermen catch Northern Pike, Lake Trout and Landlocked Salmon. Jack perch is the ‘catch' after mid-February.
Only 15 min. to the Saratoga Race Track! Also nearby are Balloon Rides (the area is home to the Adirondack Balloon Festival); The Adirondack Theatre Festival returns every year! Enjoy professional actors and artists. You might run in to someone famous.
