Step back in time and enjoy the rustic charm of FDR's attorney's classic lakefront Adirondack retreat. Resurrect quality family time beneath the gas-fired lights without the distractions electricity brings. (Propane lights, stove, refrigerator, hot water keep you comfortable). Spacious private lodge on pristine Upper Lake Chateaugay. 5 large bedrooms (sleeps up to 20), living room with massive stone fireplace, large dining room, eat-in kitchen, screened-in porch, gradual sandy beach, swimming raft, lawn slopes down to waterfront (about 200 ft).
Our family bought this place in 1969, and has continued to come every summer. Started as my father and mother and the four of us, then added grandparents and cousins, and now there are 10 grandchildren, almost all grown up themselves. It is the place the cousins who live all over the country gather each year, and is the reason they are all close.
This is a magical place that is truly away from it all.
Lovely unspoiled lake, and the lack of electricity is a step back in time that we all really appreciate. Spacious and authentic.
