The volleyball field just behind the gazebo is ready for you to gather your friends and family and start a game. There is a gravel footpath that circles the property. There is also a play area across from the office for your little ones. Our larger dock has several slips available for parking motor boats. (You may bring your own or rent one from the marina.) There are fishing opportunities from the docks and the shore. Guests enjoy complimentary use of our canoes and kayaks, including life preservers and paddles.

within the blue line
The "blue line" refers to the border of the 6 million acre Adirondack Park--the largest area of publicly protected land in the lower 48 states. Long Lake is situated near its center, a quiet escape from the larger, more heavily trafficked towns. From here, a vast area of natural beauty extends outward in every direction, spotted with charming towns and villages. Motel Long Lake & Cottages is the perfect location to use as your home base while you explore the Adirondacks. There are plenty of opportunities for wildlife viewing, sight seeing, hiking, and paddling. Many towns host rustic fairs, antique shows, and festivals. You can even find water parks, rock climbing, rafting, and horseback riding opportunities.
