John and I have been acquainted since the 1950s when I had the privilege of spending six summers at the wonderful music camp, Undercliff, because my parents worked there. I wanted my grandsons to see this beautiful spot in the Adirondacks. Both boys had a blast with John's paddle boat and tubing behind the family boat. One launch was sufficient for the entire week, thanks to the use of John's awesome boathouse and a slip at Paradox landing. The well-supplied cabin was perfect for the six of us. The view of Whiteface from the boathouse deck is magnificent. We loved watching the classic Chris Crafts on the lake. John greeted us with a personal touch and made us feel very welcome. He and his wife were available but unobtrusive and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We will be returning in the near future.
