Live like a Vanderbilt & experience history during your next family gathering at the beautiful Adirondack Great Camp of Lake Kora
This is an impressive, historic lakefront “Great Camp” in the Adirondacks for families of up to 29 persons–Lake Kora. At the Boathouse is a wide variety of watersports equipment: canoes, small sailboats, row boats, a pedal boat and fishing equipment. Also in the compound is a private tennis court and a softball field (used before WW2 for spring training by the New York Yankees). To top the list off is a truly rare and impressive big log cabin Playhouse complete with its own vintage two-lane Brunswick bowling alley, enormous video/TV game room, ping-pong table, and a super pool table is in the Main Lodge. Located six miles from the main road on 1,000 wooded acres, this privately-owned estate (previously owned by the Vanderbilts) is comprised of stunning original turn-of-the-century handcrafted log and stone lodges.
Among the numerous buildings, there is a Main House with five inviting, unique rooms and a stunning Boathouse with two individual apartments. There’s a lakeside Gardener’s Cottage, two lovely additional guest cabins, plus a very private cabin on an island in the lake. Fireplaces are abundant in all of the buildings and always lit for you when there’s a chill in the air -- truly the ultimate in log cabin luxury! Much of the original furniture, including beds, is crafted in the Adirondack Style of peeled tree limbs and branches.
The old Power House has been restored to a pine-paneled meeting facility with wireless capability and Power Point so in addition to being a great family venue, it is also ideal for a corporate retreat or customer entertaining. The old Ice House is now the ladies’ side of the spa and -- you guessed it -- the Meat House is the men’s side. Among the amenities is a vintage two-lane Brunswick bowling alley, traditional wooden canvas canoes for guests’ use and any classic lake toys you might possibly want -- all in mint condition. In the evening, roast marshmallows at the lakeside log lean-to, called a “wikiup,” decked out with reclining cushions, woolen Adirondack blankets, and a roaring fire pit. A local Native American storyteller can come after dinner and hold your family spellbound with tales of the woods.
Delicious, classic American cuisine with the freshest ingredients is featured at Lake Kora. Phenomenal meals are served in the Main Lodge’s convivial dining room, though picnics are frequently requested and very popular.
The best time for visits is mid-July throughout the fall. Available for groups of up to 29, the daily rate is $13,680 per night for the first four guests and $525 for each additional guest, inclusive of all meals, nonalcoholic beverages and activities on the property (with a minimum stay of 4 nights). Frontiers is privileged to offer this rare chance for families, corporate gatherings or groups of friends to experience one of the last impeccably maintained, privately owned Great Camps of the Adirondacks. Live like a Vanderbilt and experience history for your next family get-together or customer entertaining at the beautiful camp of Lake Kora.
