Lake Paradox Club has been a family business since about 1910. This view of the lake is from our beach and it has not really changed in the last seventy years. We are located on 400 acres of private land at the west end of Paradox Lake in the Adirondack Park, one mile East of Exit 28 of the Northway (Interstate 87) on River Road, just off Route 74. There we offer twelve rental houses, a private beach, docks and recreational facilities.
The majority of our tenants have been coming for years. Many of them spent summers here when their parents rented from my parents. And we have children who will be the third generation on the property. We try to keep the atmosphere the same but make everything better each year.
Most of our houses are quite large - three to five bedrooms. We only have one which is a one bedroom, one bath house. All of them have full electric kitchens, screened porches and fireplaces. Westward, Breezes, and Birches are year-round houses available for rental at any time of year. All the houses are completely furnished except for linens and blankets which are only provided in the winter. Facilities include a private natural sand beach for swimming, complimentary rowboats and a canoe, baseball field, volleyball court, asphalt tennis court, horseshoe pitch, basketball backstop and other field games. Outboards (14 foot boats with 6hp motors), Sunfish sailboats, kayaks and canoes, are available for rent. Hiking, mountain climbing and camping are possible not only in the neighboring Hammond Pond, Pharaoh Lake or Hoffman Notch Wilderness areas and on our 400 acres of private land, but in the High Peaks region not far away. There is good fishing in Paradox Lake for bass, pike, pickerel, lake trout and perch. The lake is also stocked with rainbow trout.
We are open all year. Try a family vacation when our off-season rates are in effect. Spring, while the rivers are full, is a good season for canoeing and fishing. In the fall, as the weather cools, the hiking is excellent and the color spectacular. Before the lake freezes solid in the winter, there is hunting season. Later ice fishing or cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Perhaps this year you would like to hold your family Christmas or Thanksgiving get together here at Lake Paradox Club which has become a tradition for our many families and friends who return year after year in all seasons to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the lake and the surrounding Adirondacks.
Our family members all hope you will make Lake Paradox Club a tradition in your family, too.
