These museums are amazing. The air museum has the largest collection of early flying planes on the East Coast. The auto museum is world class with a collection of about 70 magnificent cars, period toys, trains, etc. and the collection gets rotated so it is never stale. On good weather days one can watch the antique plans flying. Lunch at... More

High quality museum. If you're in the area to hike and the weather is cold or wet-come here! Gave our group the flavor of what life was like in Eagles Mere's heyday at the beginning of the 20th century. There's a bookstore and several boutiques, including one selling hand-made guitars and art and another selling wood tables and other hand-crafted... More

Great, great bookstore , appropriate for this obviously wealthy town. Very nice gift/women's apparel store where our female companions dropped some cash for very reasonably priced and unique items. Wonderful bakery with unfortunately limited hours, apparently connected to the Crestmont Inn. We wanted to load up with goodies and breads to take home and hand out as gifts, but they... More

Eagles Mere is more than a village... it was a destination that was 'all the rage' back in Victorian days, and is now a quaint town, well worth a weekend stay. I learned in the museum, that Eagles Mere has 250 full time residents, but the population swells to 1,800 over the Summer when many return year after year.... not... More

Eagles Mere is one of the remaining gems nestled in the mountains. The town is unspoiled and very quaint to visit. From the toboggan slide in the winter (A+ experience)to the summer activities on the lake to special events in the park, you will not be disappointed. The people are very nice in this area, some locals, many season home... More

It was a short walk from The Eagles Mere Inn where we stayed. If you like peace and quiet this is the place for you. The people where all very nice. The town is immaculate. Ice cream, souvenir shops and a wonderful museum. A short walk to the lake and a beautiful park to relax the day away. Glad to... More

I love the store on the end that sells candles when they are on sale. I also love the jolly trolley gift shop they have cool glass products. The store that is on the other side from the museum sells great different things and cool bracelets, The best shop by far though is Moose Crossing right outside of town the... More

I've visited this park half a dozen times. The RV area has good sized lots, many with electric. Water is every so often down the path, so you either have to fill up or put on a splitter and have a very long hose. There are two dumpstations to use when you leave.The restroom/showers were excellently maintained and cleaned. There... More

Beautiful little town with a great lake and a very interesting history. You can certainly spend a day here...enjoying some hiking around the lake, grabbing a bit to eat in town, and enjoying the few shops. There is also a fantastic little museum that describes the history of the town. It is very well done!
