Lakefront properties may be immersed in the natural appeal of the scenery, but they are never too far from the modern conveniences and luxuries of the city. Head to Mayfield for a fresh bite of Italian seafood at Lanzi’s on the Lake, where each meal is accompanied by a healthy side of scenery. Savor a sip of Old World varietals at Johnston’s Winery, in Galway, and let the smooth flavor of tradition and quality set the mood.
The Great Sacandaga Lake embodies year-round revelry. Bask on its beaches in the summer and sled through its wilds in the winter. The lake is for your taking any time you’re ready.
Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, there is a large, crystal clear body of water known as the "Great Sacandaga Lake". Unspoiled, unpopulated and unknown to most, this majestic lake (29 miles long with 125 miles of shoreline) is one of the few remaining "natural wonders" of New York State. Protected by the Adirondack Park Agency and the Hudson River Black River Regulating District Authority, The Great Sacandaga Lake has kept its natural beauty a secret from the "advances" of technology and commercialism. The area offers boating and water sports, snowmobiling and winter sports. The nearby Adirondack Mountains provide hiking and camping opportunities. Edinburg is within 35 minutes of Saratoga Springs, 45 minutes of Lake George and 1 hour from Albany.
