    The Lake Clear Lodge was Open During the 1920's Prohibition Era

    Lake Clear was a strategic location as a major train stop and situated between the illustrious Paul Smith's Hotel and the largest resort built in the Adirondacks, the Saranac Inn. A land and water taxi shuttled through Lake Clear to connect these iconic properties as well as blossoming 2nd homes. This was also the time of the Cure Cottage era and the booming Grand Hotel and Great Camp days. All made for a perfect storm where the famous and infamous found Lake Clear could be that "hideaway."

    We celebrate this illustrious period of Lodge and Adirondack history as part of our new culinary feature: Adirondack History of Food Dinner Events filled with tasting dinners, cooking demos, interpretive exhibits, fun trivia, fireside history chats, period spirits, and recipes.

    And as always our regular Great Lodge dinner menus, a 50+ year tradition of Adirondack farm based foods wth Old World flair continues as part of our Adirondack Alps restaurant.
