About the Cottages
Curry's is one of the oldest family -run businesses in Hamilton County, It was started in the early 1900's by David and Katherine Curry, a lumberman and his wife, the school teacher at the one room Blue Mt. schoolhouse. It is now managed by Robert Curry and Carrie Moodie, with the help their son, Kyle, and daughter, Reed. Kyle and Reed are the fifth generation of Curry's to be part of the family business.
Blue Mountain Lake is a hamlet, part of the Town of Indian Lake, in the very central portion of the Adirondack Park. Don't let the towns small size discourage though, the possibilities are endless. Hiking, fishing, RELAXING, and boating, you can do it all. Even if the weather isn't so nice, there are a number of local museums and other destinations that serve as perfect rainy day activities. The Adirondack Experience, located in Blue Mountain, provides excellent information on all things Adirondack. The Wild Center, Tupper Lake, N.Y., offers a great place to learn about the natural history of the Adirondack Park.
Curry's is very boater friendly. You can use our canoe, kayak and sun-fish, or bring your own boat. We have a boat launch, boat dock, and separate boat only beach. It should be noted that Blue Mountain Lake does have a no jet ski policy. Boaters can enjoy access to many of the islands on Blue Mountain Lake, as well as access to Eagle and Utiwonna Lakes. All three lakes are accessible by ski boat, and are well marked. Paddlers that are more adventurous can take the Marion River at the end of Utowana Lake to Raquette Lake. A canoe route can be followed to Old Forge or Saranac Lake. Power boat rentals and gas can be found at the local marina. Blue Mountain Lake is a relatively small lake, so some larger boats may be to large. All boats entering Blue Mountain Lake must be clean and free of any plant or aquatic life.
