Here at the lake, there's a large variety of outdoor activities you can do. From hiking and exploring to boating and fishing, you will never be bored here.


Guests are welcome to have the use of the dock in front of the main cabin.  They may use our canoe, or kayak, or bring their own boat to our dock. (There is a state boat launch at the north end of the lake, off of Rt. 3)  One can easily swim off of the dock or just sit and relax by the water. 


Directly across the street from the cabins are hiking trails to Bear Mountain, and a beautiful state beach with a spectacular view up the lake.   We are a little over a mile away from Cranberry Lake Village which has a public beach and picnic area as well.


In the village, one can go to the Community Hall Library which has Wi-Fi and many wonderful books; the Emporium, for boating and fishing needs (many different boat rentals are available as well) The General Store has plenty of food items, a gift shop, and a liquor store. There are also a couple of family type restaurants. Larger venues for shopping are along Rt. 3: About 20 min. drive to the west is Star Lake and about 30 minues drive to the east is Tupper Lake.

Considered the third largest lake in the Adirondacks, Cranberry Lake covers approximately 12 square miles with about 169 miles of shoreline. Roughly, two thirds of the shoreline is state owned so although there are quite a few lake side cottages at the north end of the lake, towards the middle and south end the beauty of untouched wil-derness is more prevelent. There are numerous picturesque islands, some of which are privately owned but many are not. The largest state owned island, is nearly a mile long. This one and several others have excellent spots for camping, picnicing, swimming and fishing.

There are many hiking trails in and around Cranberry Lake and numerous other small lakes and ponds to explore. Other day trips within an hour or two can provide variety in activities for the whole family:

Saranac Lake and Lake Placid - one hour’s drive

Tupper Lake, the “Wild Center” (an outdoor science museum)- 30 minutes drive

Long Lake, hydro plane rides and shopping - an hour’s drive

The Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake - an hour and 15 min. drive.

The Canadian Border -two hours drive

Many pamphlets are easily obtainable for countless other activities.
