We’ve just returned from a week at The Hedges in Blue Mountain Lake, NY. This was our first proper vacation as a family of four [plus Grandma and Grandpa] and it was amazing. I can’t say enough good things about where we chose to stay; all-inclusive (turn food-prep brain off!), rustic enough to not break the bank, amenities and service were incredible, and the food was quite good. We can’t wait to return.

We got in a few hikes, I attempted to discover a bike route (succeeded, but the riding in that area is generally not great), the kids played in the lake all day, we did some kayaking, BINGO, arts and crafts, and The Adirondack Experience Museum was shockingly good.

I’ll permit the photos to do the rest of the talking.
