Summer Stay, Sunset Swim, & Experience

Experience the beauty and serenity of one of the last Adirondack Great Camps. Relax in your own artisan lodging, enjoy a five-course Adirondack Tasting Experience, ride in an authentic Stagecoach, or take a sunset swim in pristine Lake Clear.

The Adirondack Great Lodge Experience

As one of the last of its kind, we honor the lore of the Adirondack Great Camps which were all about immersive experiences. Our family provides not just Adirondack lodging, but a themed seasonal experience for you to discover our nature and reconnect with yours.

An Iconic Adirondack Setting

The Lodge is one of the last of the original iconic Adirondack Great Camps. Set in the idyllic woods and water of New York State's only Wilderness Canoe Region, we honor the tradition of an experiential destination. Arrive and throw away the keys and let your senses soar.

From Great Camp Experience Dinners in our 1886 Stagecoach Dining Room to our 1920s Speakeasy, experience our nearly 140 years of family operation.

Your Space Is Not A Room

But 25 acres of nature trails with each Artisan Lodging intentionally set apart in the Great Camp tradition. Swim in our beautiful beach with one of the world's most spectacular mountain-lake sunsets, paddle on Lake Clear where Einstein relaxed, or meander our nature trails.

From Sunset Lake View Suites to secluded Adirondack Cabin with Fireplaces, you can choose your Adirondack Lodging.
