We just returned from our 13th visit to The Hedges. We first tried The Hedges in 2001 after being shut out of Hemlock Hall across the lake for one too many times. The change was to our extreme benefit. As the years have progressed, Pat Benton has transformed The Hedges into an authentic Adirondack great camp, while retaining the friendly... More

Great location, right on Blue Mountain Lake. Lot's of common areas with seating, fireplaces, tables for card playing or puzzles made it very relaxing. Many Adirondack chairs by the lake to relax or strum your guitar. Great hiking nearby. Breakfast and dinner is included and was first rate. Staff was pleasant and friendly. They had plenty of kayaks and canoes,... More

We spent two magical nights and days at The Hedges. What an amazing place! This was a splurge for us, but we wanted to stay at this historic Great Camp (built by industrialist and Civil War General Hiram Duryea) located on beautiful Blue Mountain Lake. What we hadn't realized ahead of time was just how incredibly much we would get... More

A very laid back place with excellent caring service. The rooms vary a bit but this time we had a pretty modern room. The setting and vibe is really great with everyone loving being there. Emma in the dining room was delightful as always. Francie is a great owner and host. Really a warm atmosphere and certainly much nicer room... More

My wife and I recently stayed at The Hedges for three nights. The lodge is located on the shores of Blue Mountain Lake. The lake is very pretty and the view from the deck of the main lodge is very relaxing. Loons calling, hummingbirds flitting about and a friendly family of ducks are just a few of the things you...

We came to the Hedges for a short break with our two teenage daughters. We stayed in a two bedroom lakefront cottage. We fell in love!! The property was gorgeous, the food phenomenal, and the staff was so friendly and accommodating! The overall atmosphere was like home away from home. We can't wait to go back!!

Foremost the location is outstanding. The lake is right there and surrounded by the peaks of the Adirondacks. The lake is crystal clear and lightly used (just a few power boats now and then). It has many large and small islands and leads in to two other lakes. There are some homes and development but very limited as it is... More

We stumbled on the Hedges by accident, looking for a place to turn around. My wife just happened to notice that they had vacancies and went in to check for us. We were only passing through, and thought the price for one night's accommodation was a little on the high side, but it did include dinner and breakfast, so we... More

The Hedges is an absolutely beautiful property with many beautiful flowers/plants/sitting areas, outside and in. The rustic lodges really have an old fashioned great camp "feel", and it's a wonderful place to uplug, rest and recharge. You can't beat Blue Mountain Lake for gorgeous views! HOWEVER, First of all, good luck getting in! The Hedges welcome back the same families... More

Two sisters, Pat and Francis, from Georgia run the Hedges. They bring with them warm Southern Hospitality that permeates through the entire staff. Good food from Sue the head cook that has been with the sisters for 39 years. Relaxing atmosphere. Community campfire every night. Good quality boats for guests use; royalex and fiberglass canoes, kayaks. (no cheap tin-can aluminum... More
