Loon-Lake has been described as an "idyllic" town located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, near Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. This remote part of the state is great for the adventurous - and beautiful anytime of the year, especially in the fall when the foliage is breathtaking. Loon Lake is a private body of water approximately three miles in length. Since it is privately owned, there is no access to the lake for the general public, but there are rentals with beach access located on the lake. Nearby Adirondack Park is a short drive away and offers unlimited recreational activities, such as swimming, hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Loon Lake is also home to the Loon Lake Golf Course, which is a century old course that has been called "the quintessential golf experience for pure of heart golfers in America." Other attractions nearby include the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, Lake Placid's Olympic facilities and several antique stores and outlets. Loon Lake is part of Franklin County, known as "Adirondack Snow Country," where 150" of snowfall each year guarantees wintertime fun. Ice fishing is popular on the many lakes of the region, downhill skiing is available at one of several mountain ski resorts, and numerous winter events and annual winter carnivals are scheduled each year in the small towns of the area.
