Fireside Chats

The Lodge is now the oldest operating family lodge in the 6 million acre Adirondack Park. Beginning in 1886 and spanning 4 generations, we have lived through the early pioneering days, the Cure Cottages period and the birth of the Grand Hotel era.

Our area too was one of the original destinations founded in large part by the connecting waterways from the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. Native Americans, sportsmen, the Adventurer, those that came for the cure gave this area a rich and interesting history from Einstein who visited the Lodge to philosophers, gangsters, musicians and the hilarious tales of the urbanite traveler. Join Ernest Hohmeyer or a guest speaker for storytelling, trivia and tall tales.
