“A Nightmare!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

The one star is for the young lady that is the housekeeper and cook...she provided a nice breakfast while the 4 of us were staying the 5 days. But obviously the owner of the Blue Mt Lake Inn could care less about anything else that occurs on his property. I'm not new to this area. I've been staying on this street for over 53 years, since I was a baby, I've stayed in almost every place here, and I understand the difference between "adirondack rustic" and "boardinghouse hovel" . This was the latter.
The huge problem we had here was the July 4th "frat party" that began at midnight until 5 am, including the outside bonfire that we watched them douse with gasoline throughout the night. We watched in fear that this over 100 year old property would torch, with us in it. They all looked underage and they drank, fought with each other, and meandered throughout the house...there were no locks on any of the bedroom doors, or even the house itself. And through the night we phoned the police 3 times, though I never did hear them come.
When I got up at 8:00 there they all were, sleeping it off throughout the
house. We were beyond angry but not knowing these kids, we didn't want a confrontation. We called the owner at the number provided for us, which was answered by Hudson River Rafting Co, which the owner, Mr. Cunningham, apparently owns too. Talked to someone, explained everything, and of course the owner never called us back.
I was fortunate that many of my family members were staying at Faxons cabins, and we spent most of our time there.
You have been warned- don't do any business with the Cunninghams.

Had a great time on an extended weekend at the Blue Mountain Lake Inn. Most of our time was spent in and around the lake. Across the street from the inn are two great features; a public beach and a place to rent boats (http://boatlivery.com/).

Based on the previous review I was a little concerned about the inn itself. Inn Keeper Tyler was great and ensured our stay was nothing but perfect. Clean rooms, towels and bathrooms. There was a great porch for the evening and pancakes and eggs were served for breakfast. We had access to a grill and one night we setup a big bonfire in the firepit. Only four of us went but it looked like the inn had about 10 rooms. Next year, if rooms are available, we plan to bring a larger group.

Everyone around the lake was friendly and we even made some new friends on Osprey Island (the lake has a bunch of islands you can explore). We spent time exploring and water skiing but noticed lots of people fishing and kayaking/canoeing. There isn't much in the immediate town in terms of bars/restaurants. There was a corner store about 10 mins away by foot where we were able to find some beer and a few items we forgot. The boat livery place also sold pies, slushies and firewood.

Good location, but an absolute dump. Holes in the walls, furniture reminiscent of a collegetown apartment, and not that cheap. They charge on a per person basis, so cheap for 1 not good for two or more.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere if possible.
