General Manager Jamie Thomas's Update 

The Hedges on Blue Mountain Lake is doing very well in its first weeks of the season. All of the facilities are up and running and our staff is working very hard to prepare for the busy summer ahead.

Several excellent additions have been provided for us including six new bicycles; a number of new canoes, kayaks and paddle boards; a reconditioned clay tennis court; and a new ping pong table in the Game Room.

These together with new entrees on our menu and a full service bar will please everyone, I’m sure. Finally, our activity program will begin in the coming weeks with guest speakers, yoga and painting classes, fly tying, Adirondack Raptors, and of course Astronomy and Bingo nights.

All of the staff here are looking forward to seeing you soon!
Jason and Cristina Roblee
Staff Profiles - 3 Roblees!

The Hedges is fortunate to have three staff with the last name of Roblee.  Two of them are related by marriage:  Cristina and Jason.  The third, Pam, coincidentally shares their surname.

Jason has local roots.  He was born in Glens Falls and grew up right in the Hamlet of Blue Mountain Lake.  Jason began working at The Hedges in 2007.  He has had various roles over the last 12 years, and he is currently an assistant chef in the kitchen.  During the long Adirondack winters, Jason enjoys snowmobiling.  He also enjoys collecting all sorts of flashlights!

Cristina Roblee was born a bit further afield, in Dej, Romania.  She came to The Hedges in 2016 as one of many international students who have become integral to the resort over many years.  She met and married Jason on Blue Mountain Lake, and the couple have been the on-site winter caretakers during the last two winters.  This summer, Cristina will work as a waitress in the Benton Dining Room.  Cristina enjoys painting in her spare time.

Pam has been a fixture in Housekeeping for more than 15 years.  She and her courteous crew are responsible for preparing rooms and cabins for guests' arrival, tidying accommodations each day, and then cleaning and preparing spaces for the next guests.  Pam is a native of West Virginia and lives in Blue Mountain Lake.  When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her beloved teenage grandson.  
Abundant Activities in the Adirondacks!
 
There will be many activities on site this season which will be highlighted when guests check in, and in email newsletters; next one is planned for early July. Information about resources and programs in the vicinity of Blue Mountain Lake will also be featured. For example, we've created guides about area fishing (found on the website) and hiking that are available at the Main Office . Click the images below to learn what's planned at the Wild Center in Tupper Lake, Great Camp Sagamore in Inlet, and Adirondack Interpretive Center in Newcomb.

Travel Advisory

New York State Department of Transportation is undertaking a Pavement Rehabilitation project in Hamilton County covering a 25.4 mile stretch of State Route 28, starting at the Herkimer County and ending in Blue Mountain Lake. Roadside elements include guide rail, drainage, signs, driveway work, intersection work, and snowmobile crossings. A project this extensive will take many months to complete so be aware that there will be delays.
