Lantern-lit Sleigh Rides

The only lantern-lit trail sleigh rides in the Adirondacks! Meander over nature trails and to the shores of serene Lake Clear, lit by real kerosene lanterns. Plus, relive history with a unique 1920s Speakeasy Dinner Experience.

Imagine When Sleighs Were a Lifeblood of Winter

Ride with a local farm on a beautiful wooden sleigh as it journeys through the Lodge's lantern-lit wooded trails while the stars show the way to the lake. Step back in time to when the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat operated in the Prohibition days, where they transported both people and the "spirits" of the woods via sleigh!

We are closed for the season as of March 12th, 2023.
