Summer Woods & Water

The iconic Adirondack Great Lodges were all about the woods and water. The idea is to merge your lodging and food with activities and meandering spaces. Your lodging was not thought of as only “your room,” but an endless porch of woods, beach, and lake. Courses to your meal included meanderings to different iconic Adirondack spaces, in our case, an 1886 hand-hewn dining room, a 1920’s Speakeasy and for dessert, one of the world’s sweetest and spectacular mountain-lake sunsets you will ever take in. All bound by interactive, educational and fun Great Lodge summer immersions for the family, romantic and the adventurer.

In the summer, we celebrate our sense of place in New York State’s only wilderness canoe region. An 18,000-acre natural spa.

  • Lodging
    Your choice of one of three distinct family built lodgings styles, from Main Lodge rooms with private bath and lake view suites to chalets in the midst of our nature trails.
  • Food 
    Adirondack Great Lodges are all about the food. Celebrate with an Adirondack Alps food credit! Always seeking to give you choices, our Summer food experiences range from our classic Great Camp dinner, a Thursday night Lake Sunset & Schnitzel Bar, our Sunday History of Adirondack Food Tasting Dinner, a picnic dinner in our Beach Gazebo’s or takeout to your lodging from our Old World Kitchen Store.
