Welcome & Boat Rentals

Welcome to the Blue Mountain Lake Boat Livery! Located on beautiful Blue Mountain Lake in the heart of the Adirondacks, our business has been operating since 1908. We offer many kinds of boat rentals from small handheld outboards perfect for fishing to large outboards ideal for skiing and tubing. We also rent both small and large pontoon boats. Kayaks, canoes, paddleboats, windsurfers, day sailors, sunfish, water skis, tubes, wakeboards and many other vessels and water toys are available for rental or sale. In our surrounding area lakes, we provide pick-up and drop-off services for small boats, sailboats, and canoes.

Historic Tours & Charters

Our two hour scenic boat cruise in one of our original 1916 wooden launches is a wonderful way to acquaint yourself with Blue Mountain and its two connected lakes: we cover both the exquisite landscapes and rich histories in our two hour guided tour. Our largest vintage wooden boat, the Towahloondah, can hold up to 46 people, while our smaller wooden boats, the Osprey and Neenykin, comfortably hold 16. Don't worry about weather - we have covered the Osprey with a green canvas top. All three of these boats are available for private evening cocktail cruises or weddings.

Vanguard Sailboats

As a registered Vanguard dealer, we have small racing sailboats, such as Sunfish, available for both rental and purchase. We can provide you with most Vanguard parts on site and can order any additional parts for your sailboat. On windy days, Blue Mountain Lake can provide a great sailing experience for all types of sailors. The beginner has plenty of room to learn in our Town Bay while expert sailors will enjoy a tack into windier and more challenging portions of the lake.

Canoeing, Camping & Services

Full of crystal-clear water and public islands, Blue Mountain Lake is ideal for boating and picnicking. If you already have a boat and wish to experience the lake, we have a boat ramp that allows for easy access to the water. Our rental canoes are perfect for an afternoon picnic or a longer camping trip. Beautiful island campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis; we will shuttle canoeists out to the various campsites on our public islands. Connected to the Fulton and Eckford Chains, Blue Mountain Lake is a great place to begin a several day canoe camping adventure. For the fisherman, we sell bait (worms, crayfish and shiners) and equipment.
