Raquette Lake Navigation Co.

Cool breezes. Breathtaking scenery. Fascinating history. Scrumptious food.

A visit to Raquette Lake is like a step back in time.  From the 1870's through the mid-1930's, steam boating and railroading were a way of life to this community.  The Raquette Lake Navigation Co. with the locally constructed vessel the W.W. Durant  continues this exciting tradition, capturing the ambience of an opulent by-gone era by surrounding one with wainscoting, stained and etched glass, gleaming brass, rich carpeting and polished oak, while at the same time, offering the convenience and comfort of modern amenities. So, come aboard for a dining experience on one of the largest natural lakes in the Adirondacks.
