This Adirondack lakefront lodge with wrap around porches and stunning lake views was lovingly designed to seamlessly merge rugged Adirondack exterior aesthetics with turn of the century Craftsman interior style. Consisting of a main home and an adjacent guest & care takers quarters connected by large, elevated porches with timber covered walkways, this family home harkens to the lodge homes of the Adirondack region of New York in the early 1900’s.
“This building I would term a Craftsman - Adirondack fusion. The main house and the guest house are interconnected by covered walkways much in the fashion of the great Adirondack camps of the days of yore, where you could go from building to building under cover,” says Carlton Homes of Holmes, King & Kallquist Architects, the architecture firm behind the project. “The interior is a throwback to the Craftsman era of design, probably 1910 to 1920 era, with quarter sawn White Oak and other past era detailing, while the exterior is classic Adirondack post & beam with cove siding.”
With a desire to be closer to friends and family the homeowners bought the modestly sized one-hundred-foot-wide lakefront property in the Adirondack region of central New York with the intention to build a functional home that would allow them to gracefully age in place in the decades to come.
