A private, pristine lake surrounded by pine, mountain laurel and giant rhododendron. Our guests have access to this private lake and the Laurel Path. In summer months, rent canoes, sailboats, paddle boats, use the beach facilities and ride around the lake in the "Hardly Able" a canvas covered motor launch and the only power boat allowed on the lake. Sailing races and lake swims are planned in the months of July and August as are children’s programs run by the Eagles Mere Athletic Association.
Whether you bring your own mountain or street bikes or borrow ours, there are hundreds of miles to explore here. Tour past Eagles Mere's 100+-year-old Victorian Cottages on barely traveled streets or venture out into the many marked forest trails.
Our natural and pristine setting is a perfect habitat for resident and migrating birds. Bring your binoculars and your books for rare sightings. The Conservancy also sponsors hikes, rambles and lectures about the wildlife in our area. Much of the land and forest around Eagles Mere is protected by the Conservancy. They maintain miles of trails for hiking and a nature center. Cross country skiing is available too.
Eagles Mere is the perfect starting and ending point in the Endless Mountains gravel riding.
For beginners to advance looking for a guided tour of the streams and water ways.
