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.
