ADKS Enters Phase 3 of Re-opening

Long Lake Welcome Sign

 

The North Country Region of New York State entered Phase Three of reopening on Friday, June 12, 2020. The community is  excited for local restaurants to be opening for dine-in service in addition to continued take out offerings. We welcome everyone back to the table! Our businesses have worked diligently to prepare safety plans, and space out their tables inside and provide outdoor dining and take out windows.

 

Restaurants must limit indoor capacity to no more than 50% of maximum occupancy, not counting employees. Outdoor capacity must be limited to the number of tables that can be safely and appropriately arranged, such that tables are a minimum of 6 feet away from each other.

 

They have rearranged and recalibrated throughout these last few months and we waited patiently for re-opening plans and guidelines. Our scenery and views remain the same and our community spirit remains level best. Join us. Please wear your masks and distance yourself six feet apart when possible and be ready for some changes. It’s always an evolution and work in progress. Long Lake has been in the hospitality business since the 1850s, we will figure this all out. 

Both The Cellar and Long Lake Diner offering indoor seating, continued take-out as of Friday June 12.

The historic Adirondack Hotel resumes indoor dining and reservations for hotel rooms starting on Monday, June 15th.

The Adirondack Growl & Grub will be open with take-out growlers and food on weekends only, with no indoor seating.  

The Park in Long Lake currently offers outdoor seating. 

The ADK Trading Post has outdoor picnic table seating.

 

 

The Raquette Lake Tap Room

The Tap Room is still doing take-out only for the time-being. We’re small and have a hard time meeting the social distancing requirements and other mandates set forth in phase 3 . However, you can get your food and drinks to-go, and enjoy them at one of the picnic tables across the way in the field.

The hotel is now open, with a safety cushion of 2 days vacancy and thorough sanitation between room rentals. As always, we’re very grateful for our customers support and looking forward to seeing everyone! 315-354-4581

 

Look for more announcements in our stories for our other business announcements. Coming soon! @theparkll @adktradingpost @thecellarrestaurantll

2020 Hors D’Oeuvres Results Announced!

A buzz was in the air on Friday, February 21st for the Annual Long Lake Hors D’Oeuvres Tour the benchmark event for the Town of Long Lake’s Winter Wonderland Week.   
 
Guests of the tour were invited to ride the Long Lake’s community “Little Bus” and visit the local restaurants to vote for their favorite appetizer.  Guests hailed from Columbia County, NY, Plattsburgh, Tupper Lake, Long Lake and Albany and other locales.  The participating restaurants included: The Adirondack Hotel, the Long Lake Diner/Owl’s Head Pub and the Long View Lodge. 
 
With a good turnout, Long Lake looked to neighbor in Newcomb, to use their community bus to supplement transportation for the event.  Supervisor Robin DeLoria offered his ten-passenger bus to be used for the event citing he was happy to share services between the two upstate municipalities straddling Essex and Hamilton County.  
 

 


Guests descended upon the venues one at a time, moving about the community to try three appetizers at each location.  Guests had a voting card to review and select their favorite at each venue. The judging was to consider each individual appetizer with overall impression, presentation, uniqueness, combination of flavors, pleasing to the palate and originality. 

The Long View Lodge served a Chicken Pesto Puff Pastry, a Scallop Seafood Crostini and Bacon wrapped Meatloaf over Mashed Potatoes.  The overall winner for the Long View Lodge was the Chicken Pesto Puff Pastry with one guest saying, this was the favored selection, it should be on the menu and the dish was beautifully presented.

The Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub served each dish individually with a sorbet palate cleanser offered between each selection.  Dishes included Chicken Sausage Chili cup in a hand-molded tortilla, Bacon Bourbon BBQ, Battered and Breaded Pork Ribs  and Fried Green Tomatoes. The Chili Cup took top honors.  Comments remarked, “Execution at the diner was excellent, loved being served the dishes one at a time, and the flavors and the chili would be great to have coming off the trails. Loved the ribs too!”
 

The Adirondack Hotel served a Venison Slider, Smoked Duck with Brie and Smoked Salmon.  The Adirondack took top prizes for their Smoked Duck with Brie. Fans raving that the dish was a great combination of tastes citing the onion on the duck was a very nice touch.   
 

Guests were impressed with the portions and were full by the end of the night.  Guests remarked at the great camaraderie of the company, the organization of the event, the chefs creativity and the excellent service. 
 
The next foodie involved event in Long Lake will be in May during the Eat ADK Restaurant Week,  April 30th – May 7th.  More information will be available at www.mylonglake.com

New Years Eve Planning Tools Long Lake Style in the ADK

2016NYE poster

Long Lake has it going on for New Years. Dining options galore with high end choices. It will be a fantas-smic-gourmet experience. (yah, our skilled office staff invented that word.. well we think we did.. ok it was me and Bobby)

With a variety of choices from filet mignon, lobster tails, scallops, vegetarian options, desserts, speciality drinks. It would be cool if you snapped a photo and posted it instagram, #mylonglake would be great! Thanks in advance! Make your choice and reserve today. Look for The Cellar Restaurant and Pub, The Adirondack Hotel and the Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub.

Here are some highlighted reviews of our local places.

The Cellar Restaurant and Pub: Every time we eat at The Cellar it just keeps getting better! We came here twice during our recent stay at Long Lake. We are so happy we found this place. Our children loved it. Service was excellent and the food is very good.

The Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub: Great place for good food. Locally owned and operated restaurant and you won’t be disappointed. View is great too! Great food with generous portions. Service was excellent. Owners, Jim and Paula, know how to put on a great spread!

Adirondack Hotel: Felt welcome among the regulars. We enjoyed the food and excellent service. The menu options are always interesting. The dinner is always outstanding along with tasty and unusual appetizers. Don’t miss the gift shop.

Did someone say free bikey taxi? No, we don’t have those, but we do have the Little Bus. Visitors, and residents have rated their Little Bus experience 5-stars! My most recent, favorite Little Bus memory was meeting a group of Canadian travelers, spending the holiday in Long Lake. They were adventurous and pulled over on their travels throughout the area and decided to make it their New Years Eve destination, not knowing one thing about our community. The group of them, including children were keeping their eye on the bus. Folks were coming and going in large groups, and pairs. The bus would leave and return a few minutes later with new guests and sometimes some of the same people that just left.

Long Lake Little Bus provides free transportation on New Years Eve. 518.323.5001  This will be this new busses 1st time out on New Years Eve.  Let's give it a warm welcome.

Finally the guests asked a local on the porch, “What is with this traveling, little bus? Where does it go?” Clay, a local Long Laker, was exiting to catch the bus himself. He took a moment to clue the visitors in on the secret and he’s over the moon to introduce new people to the Little Bus. He insists they get on the bus and he’ll take them up the street to they can check out the appetizers. The family was appreciative of the hospitality, they raved, “This is the friendliest town we’ve ever been in. You are the nicest people.”

The options for the little bus are easy. Call the number, make sure you know where you are and you’ll be picked up. Riders can take it anywhere within town limits. It can hop from the skating rink, to the town beach to all the businesses in between and even your grandparents house on Kickerville Lane.

Ride the Little Bus and enjoy all the options without the burden of driving. Yes, its free and yes you can call it and the driver will pick you up at your home or lodging. New number for 2016 is 518-323-5001 Bring the whole family, invite friends, have a Long Lake Family reunion for New Years Eve. We promise, it will be an evening you’ll never soon forget.

If you need a place for the kids, look no further than the Geiger Arena. Movies, Wii Games, wifi and skating and sledding until 10pm. The kids can go by the Little Bus and they’ll get to their destination safely. Bobby will be serving up pizza, drinks, hot chocolate and pizza.

Polar Plunge is a tricked out time to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Stay for a few nights and round out the stay with the Polar Bear Plunge on January 2nd, 2016. It’s an experience unto itself. Singles and Teams dress up in fun costumes and leap into the frosty waters of Long Lake on their mission to support The Wounded Warrior project. The banter from MC Peter Michael Marino will have you on the floor (or the sand and / or snow – because we’re on a beach) This is the 4th year for the Long Lake event and the goal is to raise $4000 to make Long Lake’s Donation total over the last four years exceed $20,000.

We hope you consider making Long Lake your destination for New Years Eve and stay a little longer after that!

For other activities look no further than a stop at iconic Adirondack landmark, Hoss’s Country Corner. Check out newly opened Adk Growl and Grub (located behind Hoss’s), grab a panini at the ADK Trading Post, a Reiki Session with Dina Kennedy and a nice bottle of speciality wine from Ali Babas Liquors. And then there’s plenty to do, drive around and explore our region, you’ll never know what you find around the corner.

Geocaching Mid Winter Event Long Lake

February 27, 2010 will see the forth  annual Long Lake Mid-Winter Geocaching Event.  Not only will the weekend be filled with adventurous folks seeking treasure in the snowy tundra, we will even provide them with enterntainment at night from the AC with a performanced of Steel Magnolia’s at the Town Hall at 7pm, Saturday the 27th.

Book lodging early.  Check # for lodging in Long Lake. 

The Mid-Winter Geocaching Get-Together 2010 will follow the same theme as the previous three years. An event in the middle of the Adirondack Mountains, in the middle of the Winter where geocachers from all over the North East get together to geocacache, visit with geocaching friends, make new friends, share stories, trade geocoins and signature items, and just plain ol’ have fun in the snow. This years event will be the first year the event will be hosted under the BlueLine Geocachers.

Blue Line Geocachers Logo


This is an interim listing, in order to get the information out early enough so those geocachers who wish to come up earlier than the event date can make accomodation arrangements.

The following info will not change:

What: The 4th Annual Mid-Winter Geocaching Get-Together.
When: February 27th, 2010
Where: Long Lake Town Hall / Fire Hall (N 43° 58.352 W 074° 25.215)
Time: 9:00 am – 4:00 PM
Lunch: 12:30 PM


Lunch will be catered and more details on this to come.


February can be a month of much snow. If you have snowshoes or cross-country skies – do bring them (Not needed – but will help). Long Lake is also a great place to snowmobile. Many of the caches will be accessible via a snowmobile. If you own a snowmobile, do bring it.

Those of you who have never attended the Mid-Winter event, see the following links for previous events:

Mid-Winter GeoCaching Get-Together 2009
Mid-Winter GeoCaching Get-Together 2008
Mid-Winter GeoCaching Get-Together 2007


As in the past, many geocachers choose to come up on the Friday before the event and some choose to stay until the Sunday after the event. If you are interested in accomodations for the Long Lake Area, please visit this link


As we did for last years event, instead of having a drawing for prizes, we are going to have two contests instead. With three prizes for each contest.

1.) Geocache Container Contest
2.) Geocaching Photo Contest

Submissions for both contests will be accepted until 12:00 noon.

Geocache Container Contest.
Bring a geocache to the event to be judged by the viewing audience (event attendees).

Here are the categories:

– Best Overall
– Most Creative
– Best Craftsmanship

You can enter more than one geocache container. But, you can only enter one geocache container per category.

The cache needs to be constructed in such a way that it could actually be placed as a cache (must be able to stand up to the elements without falling apart or leaking).

It must contain a log book and should be given a cache name (written on the log book).

When you check in and enter your cache container , you will be assigned a number.

This number will be written on the first page of the log.

One voting slip will be handed to each person when they check in.

When you vote, you will use the number on the first page of the log to indicate which cache you are voting for. Write this number next to the category on your slip.

Geocachers can vote on their own containers.

All containers are the sole property of the geocachers who submitted them. Please take them back home with you after the contest unless you want to contribute them to the Blueline Geocachers.

Geocaching Photo Contest.

Each year, the event displays photoboards of photos of geocachers. In the past, we have asked the geocachers to mail us their photos and we displayed them on the board for the event. This year, we are asking the geocachers to bring the photos to the event to be entered into the geocaching photo contest.

Here are the categories:

– Funniest
– ? (to be determined at a later date)
– ? (to be determined at a later date)

You can enter more than one photo, but you can only enter one photo per category.

The photos must be a legitament photo you have taken on the trail during your geocaching adventures.

All photos submitted become property of the Blueline Geocachers for future event boards.

Photos can be printed or processed in any manner you see fit. All photos must be no larger than 4 X 6

When you check in at the start of the event, you will enter your photo then. You will be assigned a number for each photo, for each category you submit too.

Voting slips will be handed to each person/geocacher at the time of check in.

Geocachers can vote on their own photos. Again, this is an interim listing. Many more details to come. Please check back often. As in the past, there will be plenty of geocaches in the area.

Hope to see you here in Long Lake!
